Spending two months on a P & O cruise taking photos of all the pensioners on board would be cool in an “actually, these guys are pretty interesting” way for about a week. After that I’d imagine it would get soul-destroyingly dull, but what do I know? Daniel said the engineers on board the ship were way better models for photos, so I’m basing my analogy exclusively on that.
Daniel Grant is a young photographer from Ipswich who sent us a charmingly meek email about how he’d only just plucked up the courage to get in touch. He should have showed us his photos time ago because we love them all. I asked Dan how he got in to taking pictures and he told me this: “I fell into photography last Summer, going around photographing old cars and progressed from there. I see photography as more and more something that is out of my hands. It’s the most natural thing to me, focusing increasingly on the unpredictable.”
Some freezing cold night on top of a car-park rooftop, phosphorescent in that darkness.
I had a two month contract on board a P&O cruise ship as a photographer, and the engineers were far better models in comparison to the octogenarians that were a few decks above us on that floating retirement home.
