In an effort to push my photography forward, I took a workshop this month taught by two members of the Boreal Collective. Myself and 11 other photographers had two weeks to shoot a story and then another week to edit/present it. It was a very rewarding experience on many levels - gaining new perspectives, forcing myself outside of my comfort zones (approaching strangers to photograph them, in particular), connecting and learning from fellow photographers.
I’ve posted the project that was the result of the workshop, “Owner/Operator." I went on the road for 4 days/2,500km with my dad, a long-haul truck driver. What was originally conceived as a week-in-the-life sort of project ended up being a more general look at truck driving culture, something I’ve been equal parts fascinated and turned off by over the years.
