When browsing on the Internet you'll sometimes be surprised to find some great photo series. Some of them catch your interest instantly and make your day a bit brighter. This is how we found the photo series 'Blight' from Dejon. We asked him to share some backgrounds on this series.
Could you tell us a bit more on the background of your project?
There isn't a profound or deep meaning behind this series. I see interesting people and I capture their faces. With almost every encounter, they generally have nothing to hide. There's always a story to their current living situation and that story is always fascinating.
How did you prepare the project
The series is about the people I encounter, so the most important part is to get to meet them. So, the only preparation I did was map out the areas I wanted to explore for "street shooting".
Do you have a goal with your project?
Actually, there isn't one. I just love doing this. It is an ongoing project that I will proceed at my own pace.
Would you share your technique of the photos with our readers?
No, not because it is not interesting, but I consider it irrelevant. What matters is the subject of the series and that's what I'd like to focus on.
What is the most memorable reaction on your project so far?
I've had people cry when viewing my work. I guess that's a good thing.
