Jack Picone

DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHER

Documentary photography enables me to approach people from cultures vastly different to my own and interact with them.

As I document people and tell their stories, further communication is exchanged between the people I document and myself, and finally when that body of work is published it becomes a catalyst for communication between two or more cultures.

I like the idea that my photographs can be a conduit of communication between different people in different places.

Photography allows me to live freely and approach and interact with a diversity of people free of prejudice with an in common humanity.

I see myself as a storyteller.

My photographs are both the ‘visual footprints’ of my own life and the life stories of the people I have photographed.
