Explore the world of Documentary Photography and the Personal Project!
Whether it’s around the corner, or in a far corner of the world, the documentary photography project has been a mainstay of images for the past century. Join Rob Skeoch and explore some of his most recent projects and gain the knowledge to start your own project, spoken through your own voice. If you have a camera and at least one lens, you’re well equipped to tackle your first documentary story.
ROB SKEOCH (1959-), is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in magazines and books published around the world. He grew up in Burlington, Ontario, and began making photographs for the high school yearbook in 1974. He’s remained in love with photography since then, working at a number of newspapers, freelancing for years, and currently working on a project of portrait work.
As a storyteller, Rob uses photography to tell the story as he finds it on the streets. Working in the tradition of photography greats Robert Frank and Walker Evans, Rob creates portraits of people on the streets, in Hamilton, Toronto or New York City. A lover of all genres of photography, including the work he does with Sony of Canada and the latest digital cameras, Rob also uses historical equipment in the fulfillment of his vision of photography.
This commitment to his art has taken him around the world, and around the corner, in search of great images that will contribute to the story of mankind, the focus of his work.
