When I was studying photography one of the greatest places for learning was the college library. You can learn all the technical stuff in the studios that’s fine but to really understand the art of creating images you can’t beat looking through other photographers work. I took this image in 1990, it’s inspired by the photographer Irving Penn who did a project called ‘small trades’ in the 50’s. I think he himself was influenced by August Sander, the German photographer, who documented the German folk of the early 20th century. #scottishphotographer #scottishphotography #edinburghphotographer #edinburghphotography #portrait #portraitphotography #portraitphotographer
