SEAN WELCH [@seanwelchfoto]... Hello! My name is Sean Welch and it's my honour to be the latest oddity to take over. I live in the glitzy and glamorous northern English city of Hull, East Yorkshire. Almost all my pictures are taken here although I tend to subvert any trips away or holidays into photo opportunities.
I go out with a camera as often as possible hoping to find something beautiful or amusing or maybe just feeling drawn to the light, like a demented oversized moth. Inspiration comes from being a long time fan of the painter Edward Hopper and great colour photographers of the last century like William Eggleston, Ernst Haas, Fred Herzog and king of them all, Saul Leiter.
Like almost everyone else, I'd say music has been my other consistent source of inspiration. The American singer/songwriter @lauraveirs wrote a song a few years ago called 'Make Something Good' which on the face of it may sound trite but is beautifully melancholic and to me, true for the whole point of art. So that's what I do.
I try to make something good.
