I like to photograph the ordinary. I am from England and I’m 41 years old.
My main influences are William Eggleston, Diane Arbus, Stephan Shore and Martin Parr.

I try and take a camera with me all the time and photograph anything that interests me. I don’t go out for the sole reason to take photos very often as I don’t have the time.

I’ve been shooting seriously for about 8 years now but I’ve had an interest in photography since I was about 13yrs old.

I’m not really sure what draws me to photography and I don’t have any distinct goals. But I’m always surprised how rich a subject matter it is, there are photographs waiting to be taken around every corner. Maybe that’s what I like about it? There’s instant art everywhere! I’ve never studied photography, I don’t think I would enjoy it if was something I ‘had’ to do.

Back Streets, Manchester by Peter Bartlett

17 Nov

I know the city of Manchester well having been brought up nearby and in later life, working in the city centre on several occasions. So, I have always had an awareness of what I regard as Manchester’s true backstreets – streets named “Back #€*@$+% Street”.

In the 1980s there were almost thirty such streets in the City centre. Now just twelve remain, the others demolished during the city’s regeneration.

Located in the commercial centre of the city, these backstreets are within yards of thriving thoroughfares. Yet they can be deserted, dark, dirty, ugly and cluttered with litter, rubbish and waste bins. They are, however, functional and utilitarian, providing essential service access to the rear of often grand buildings and businesses.

With their origins in the 19th century they now reflect 21st century life and I have set out to show how their current use interfaces with their historic origins before more disappear.

Photography is a tool for me to create something that´s according to my own understanding of visual esthetic. Keeping it simple and free from distractions is always a goal to get a balanced shot which is easy on the eye. Hope you enjoy it.

Dennis Duzhnik – Kiev, Ukraine

3 Nov

I live in Ukraine, in capital named Kiev. Maybe you heard about that place, cuz now we a living basically in hot spot, now we experiencing a war time that comes to us from our «brother» country. So Ukraine is not Russia, because a lot of my foreign friend think that there is no difference between Ukraine and Russia.
So in this hard time we live, sometimes you want to just run away, escape, forget or abstract for a while. My Route Motives is some kind of expression. Roads, perspectives, minimalism are one of the major parts of my lifestyle. And sometimes I’m just drive away to find some places like this one, taking tripod and two cameras digital and film one and just taking trips a lot to find myself in different street shots. All shots are digital, using a 0.2-2s shutter. Cameras: 5dmkII and 550d
