It’s no secret that here at AbsoluteMichigan we dig photos. A blog that we’ve been keeping our eye on for a while is Adventures of a Brit Abroad
Matt Callow is originally from the other side of the Pond, and has been living and working in the Ypsilanti area for the last several years. He’s a photographer by trade, and has this to say about his work
I prefer working with vintage, toy, pinhole and a variety of cheap, plastic cameras. Not for any grand, artistic reasons, it’s simply that I like the look of the pictures they produce, and I like the way the cameras force me to work harder as a photographer…To me photography is a process. An organic process in which every stage feeds into every other, and the final result – the photograph – is just one of those equal stages.
While this blog features mainly his work and the various techniques he uses, its enjoyable to watch this organic process unravel. Matt highlights some of the various shows his work’s been displayed at, and has done multiple workshops for students, exposing them to the joys of traditional and experimental photography.
Do yourself a favor, and stop by Adventures of a Brit Abroad … and don’t be surprised if you find yourself returning time and time again.
