LONELY URBAN PEOPLE
IN CONVERSATION WITH BELINDA CORNEY
Photography by Belinda Corney
Interview by John St.
Photographer Belinda Corney is now based in London but is originally from Queensland, Australia. Coming from an artistic background and always enjoying taking photos, it was in 2017 that Belinda first discovered street photography through a street photography workshop. This kick-started her to get out and photograph the amazing city she was living in and was the artistic outlet she had been missing for a long time. This collection of images shows Belinda's love of light, shadow and reflections, she is especially drawn to the interesting shapes that shadow and light create, and as well as capturing the interaction of human beings, usually solitary or in silhouette, within their environment.
“It's an honour to be able to make a good photograph of anyone, and it’s a great privilege. It's the only tool that will stop time itself.”
"I watched the documentary EVERYBODY STREET for the first time last year and Jill Freedman was one of the photographers featured and what she said stuck with me. This whole documentary is full of some pretty inspirational and motivating stuff, I highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in documentary or street photography!"
