“I guess that photographing my own country’s decay put me in a position where I wasn’t able to take too much distance from the things and people I photographed. I often feel like by photographing them, their pain and struggle, I’m photographing a part of myself.”
Known as “The Welsh Dragon” because of my signature on prints, my love of photography began whist attending evening classes to learn how to take pictures of my then preschool age children: the tutor developed a print in the darkroom and I was “hooked”. The realization that it was possible to produce emotional images came when I photographed wet ponies at a Horse Sale. My photography developed into an aim to capture places, people, their traditions and way of life before they changed forever.
Carmen Perrin, also known as Miss Absolutely Alice, is an enormous advocate for humanity! Firmly believing that every person has something to contribute to the world, a new idea to bring to the table that could make their community thrive or take a cause or vision from a dream to a reality, making something good and turning it into something phenomenal.
Sue Flood’s photography offers a perspective not many of us will get to witness in our lifetime. Her intimate animal portraits give me a new appreciation for the stunning yet fragile environment she photographs. She is one of the few women who have forged a successful career as a full time wildlife and adventure travel photographer and it’s not hard to see why.
