Sewer Hatch @ Broadway West, Vancouver
Is this one of the nice sides of the West Broadway Street Rehabilitation and Transportation Improvements?
“You shall have a place outside the camp and you shall go out to it; and you shall have a stick with your weapons; and when you sit down outside, you shall dig a hole with it, and turn back and cover up your excrement.”
A face brimming with happiness and grace, or a face that is hard, hateful… a successful face… a smiling face.. photographing faces brings you up close and personal to the person you are taking photo of.
Face-to-face interaction, or should I say face-to-camera interaction, can bring many different, sometimes quite surprising, revealing personalities reactions from the subject you are about to photograph. And if I don’t have a studio or a big open space with diffuse light and a neutral background, well.. then, I ‘steal’ a location, for a very down-to-earth final photo. My work has never been shot in a studio, and with that, an end result is a natural and tranquil photo that was shot in a natural setting.
