Knowing the material with which you work intimately is the role of the craftsman. Thinking goes hand in hand with the act of doing. Small adjustments to the work be done can greatly effect the efficiency of the object created. Each person I spent time photographing has a different approach to the material they are working with. Studio spaces have ranged from corners of living rooms to re-purposed chapels. Each craft is unique as is the person undertaking it. The handmade produce of the craftsman defies the homogeny of mass production.
I have created portraits of each craftsman using multiple images to capture the unique way they have of working.
