Inspiration from Eclecticism
A visit to Dunkirk in France inspired me to shoot some of the many doors on the houses, cafes and bars facing the English Channel.
It triggered a new personal project, "Project Doorways" and now I'm hunting down doorways wherever I go and snapping them.
The Second Iteration
Find below the first and second set of my doorways, the new shots updating my ongoing mission to photograph "portals" from all my travels. I hope you like the update and don't forget to check back soon or sign up to my email newsletter for regular updates.
It's not always obvious what triggers a little photographic inspiration, but in this case inspiration came when walking along the seafront in Dunkirk I was rather taken by the eclectic range of front doors on the seafront. These Dunkirk Doorways were all very, erm, "French" and as I shot in autumn, have that flat, lustreless look often seen in sad-looking seaside towns, as inhabitants prepare for winter.
In this project, I aim to shoot doorways and "portals" in general, so I have since been keeping an eye on front doors wherever I go. The next set of images will appear here soon, so please check back soon.
