A few weeks into the summer and this week I'm finally catching up on some blogging. I'm really getting to know myself more as a photographer and the reasons why I get the type of images I do and the type of images I don't, and thats a breakthrough for me. This summer my focus is to just make more meaningful images no matter the situation, just being a photographer at all times whether its a news assignment, fashion, nature, serious or not serious I just want to try and make interpretive and creative images.
These images just come from a random call I got one day after photographing the guy above in the blue shirt, Lil Noid or Derrick Harris. He called me up and told me he was going to show me his old neighborhood he grew up in before going to jail. This is a well known area in Memphis called Binghamton.
The set of images made in the studio is where Derrick took me after we left his neighborhood and went to where he records his music, this area of memphis is called Mitchell Heights. It was my first time going here but I really would like to go back and walk around to explore, I haven't done as much as I would like to this summer.
Enjoy, feel free to leave a comment.
