Documentary photography is one of my favorite photography genres. Masters like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, and Sebastio Salgado have always been an inspiration. In 1994 I began my journey in this craft. The scent of fixer, D76, and Ilford paper were a constant reminder of those days. Developing and printing(reprinting) until the sun came out happened way to many to times enumerate, but what’s certain is that all those experiences have left an indelible mark and more importantly now, all that has been ported over to my digital world.
Here’s a photoessay from a few weeks ago as I embark on new journeys with the Ricoh GR as my primary documentary tool these days.
