Taking it to the street

Vol. 1 Issue 2 Spring 2014

About 5 years ago I had a chat with a retired fireman about photography and he was telling me about a series of portraits he had seen displayed at a local office. These protraits were of people we were both familiar with, people who we would often see downtown when we were kids. The striking thing about all this was that they’re all gone now — these people are just memories.

Add to this the fact that as a photographer I have been influenced by many greats over my life, some of whom have focused on people and helped to tell their stories. I wanted to do that, I wanted to begin to show the variety and character of people through my photography. I wanted to let people see we are all different yet somehow show we are also much the same.

Here are some of those photos…
