I work as a Carer Abers, have done for 14 years.
I quit Art school and a job to be a Carer. I am a Carer for my Mother. These photographs have nothing to do with my being a voluntary Carer within my own family home.
I shoot these stories in my own time. These are people in my local community that I meet or get in touch as they want to share, or talk & relay and relate an account of their life.
Have you even been to the Small Town Inertia site and READ the stories?
Is your argument that people, if they have a tough situation should not be allowed to have it documented? or that their right to share their story be censored?.
Why post images like this on a photographic site? Some people view photography as an act of documenting reality. This is a Documentary thread.
Sarcasms always going to be the lowest form of wit Abers and I don't do 'trolls'. I'm all for a good discussion on photography or anything else. Communicating and the ability to do so is an amazing thing.
Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling.
If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.
