Two weeks ago I met Tom Hunter at a workshop he was doing at the
Tom relates most of his work to art especially to the Dutch painters such as Vermeer and tries to replicate it using photography as a tool. He uses film with large format camera.
At the time of meeting him I had a problem convincing some people for the project I was doing to photograph them. So I asked Tom on how he convinces his sitters to model for his camera? His answer was you have got to know them a lit bit more. But the problem with my project was I knew those people for more than three years it is just they don't want to appear on my photographs because the social stigma of my project.
