Facing Change: Documenting America – Danny Wilcox Frazier

Throw a ball

I shot this photo last weekend as I took a walk around our office. It has no deep meaning or something like that, the scene just caught my attention and I like the result. I can’t tell why, it even is in portrait orientation which is quite unusual for me but it just worked better.

Daniel Milnor about environmental portraiture

I discovered the documentary work of Daniel Milnor already some time ago but got distracted by other photographers and styles. Now I’m back to reading a lot about his work and his thoughts as well as viewing his photographs. I’m trying to understand what he’s doing and why he’s doing it. Gone are the days of skipping over blogposts with a bunch of photos without reading the text accompanying them. Or at least that’s how I want it to be.

Daniel also does a lot of videos in which he presents photos and gives a back story and some advice. One of the best is about environmental portraits and you can watch it below.
