About this series: Newfoundland
“My images are made in a traditional documentary style. The series of photographs portray raw imagery of places, people and landscapes – often integrating these subjects into one series of work. Although the photographs are not staged, they often have film still qualities that capture the feelings of their surroundings. The aim is to photograph the environment I find myself in without prejudice, creating images that are an honest representation. I hope this approach to photography will create sincere, almost quiet, depictions that illustrate powerful themes of human emotion”.
‘Newfoundland’ is a glimpse into one man’s life. A story, a reflection, a moment.
