Southern Depictions

Project statement:

For over twenty years I’ve documented a diverse social and cultural range of people. My approach to capturing the best possible photographic portrait is to concentrate on the individual’s mood or feeling and ask that they place themselves in their most comfortable surroundings. This environmental context helps to reveal an intimate part of the individual and has the potential for establishing a strong personal connection with the viewer.
