As a portrait photographer, I am always inspired by other photographers that have the ability to capture a portrait that is so compelling and thought provoking. It is a rare gift to capture the essence of a person within a photograph, really touching the hearts of those that view the portrait. I would like to introduce to you, a photographer that does this very thing, his images are so beautiful and raw. Harsh in presence, yet emotional while inviting you into a very personal space.
When one thinks of blacksmiths, what's typically conjured is the image of crusty old fellas in overalls scratching beards with soot-covered hands. What we don't typically imagine is anything contemporary, particularly artistic or, certainly, female. Until now.
Today as globalization, China, and the Internet alter the landscape of our local lives, it's soothing to hear the ring of the blacksmith's hammer banging tempo to the rhythm of man.
