Beaches, bonfires, and the glory of the ocean. These are the images Australian photographer Joe Nigel Coleman uses to paint us a picture of his life. Anyone who has spent any time camping or traveling knows how difficult it can be to take a picture that really captures the glory of the experience. Joe have an innate ability to capture that intangible something that makes these times so special.
Joe only shoots film, so all of the pictures are devoid of any kind of Photoshop magic. Any effects are simply the result of light leaks and old cameras. What can be appreciate most about his work is it’s unpretentiousness. Joe’s photos are bursting with life. You never get the impression that he is trying to tell a particular story. Rather he lets the story tell itself through his images.
