Time and permission. Not always do you get this with photography, but sometimes you get just about enough. Always, on reflection, I would have liked a little more time so that I could communicate whatever it is I wanted to communicate in these short black and white photo essays.
Of course, I’d love it if you looked at each. But if you’re in a rush, please look at the first. It’s called The Survivors and it’s the important one.
The children made refugees by the South Sudan Civil War have had to cope with malnourishment, unimaginable trauma and living their formative years in a camp.
Lost in Music
The music starts. You’ve left your troubles at the door. Time to lose yourself. Next up in my black and white photo essays is Lost in Music.
The Wedding Crashers
Hour upon hour of counting down and catching repetitive small talk. And then the couple flashed past in a carriage and it was all over.
Nevertheless, I had a blast.
I have a page with just portraits of artists, which is a collection of some of my work with musicians, writers and those in the creative industries. In the meantime, I’m off to work on another essay.
Should you wish to see some colour photo essays, might I suggest The Royal Photographic Society as a starting point.
The Black and White Picture Photographer
The pictures were taken by me, David. Should you have a minute, you can read more about me. Thank you for dropping by.
I’m in Tauranga, New Zealand if you’re in the neighbourhood and would like to discuss portrait options. I also travel around the country as much as I can.
