52 STRANGERS

A great photographer once said to me “Only once you take the portraits of 50 strangers will you then know what it is to be a portrait photographer.”

Perhaps this was his slightly more poetic way of saying that you get better with experience; however I have decided to accept his challenge.

I am a photographer who does both personal and commercial work.  I constantly look for ways of combining these two types of work into one project which will be rewarding at many levels.

Most of my commercial work, and one of my biggest passions, is to photograph weddings. Five years ago, I dropped all other forms of portrait work to concentrate on this unique, fast-paced and very special event. As my skills have grown, my work in this area has become more interesting and complex, taking me all around the world.

As I travelled for weddings, I found myself in places that cried out to be photographed further.  In this travel work, I started to again explore the awesome intimacy of pure portraiture.  Rather than taking indiscriminate tourist photographs of a special location, I chose to get close to the people with a view to capture the local culture.  My goal was to produce dignified portraits of these strangers abroad.

I realised that I wanted to capture a connection, a moment or a look that tells the story of a person in everyday life.  To do this with a stranger is the real challenge, a real personal project.

My challenge therefore is set. Each week, wherever I might be, I will photograph a stranger that chances to cross my path.   I look forward to seeing how my experience will grow my style and the where the journey takes me.  52 Weeks. 1 Year. 1 Camera. 1 Photographer.  52 STRANGERS.
