DAILY DOCUMENTARY

When being creative is your profession, eventually your passion can start feeling like work. That's why, in the late summer of 2019, I decided to set aside the DSLR, the studio lights, the meters, the modifiers- and trade it in for a camera that fits in my pocket.

At first, it was just an exercise in Liberation through Limitation, but quickly escalated to becoming a daily study in story-telling, light and composition theory and so much more. I soon began to feel empowered in photography in a way that I hadn't felt since the first time holding a camera. No staging, no posing, no big, scary equipment to unease my subjects; just a guy and a toy camera.

 

With all the restrictions cast aside, the stories, moments and people began to show themselves in a way like never before. Below is a sample of those moments
