Daniel Depew: People with Stories
I recently discovered the work of Daniel Depew when I found this photograph on Feature Shoot’s On the Road Exhibition. There was something about the simplicity of the image, combined with the poignancy of a man wearing a USA vest in an empty coffee shop, that drew my interest. You could feel time passing in the still of winter, in that sterile burger joint, and wonder about his life, his family, his future. Upon investigating Dan’s work further, he brings that same way of seeing to many of his portraits and images. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, his photographs celebrate the odd, humorous, awkward, honest, and unpolished moments and characters of real life.
On his site, I found this photograph, one that represents all the I love about photography.
The images below are from Dan’s People with Stories series. And they are just that. People with Stories.
