IN CONVERSATION WITH DAVID SHORTLAND
Photography by David Shortland
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Originally from Ireland but now based in London, street photographer David Shortland draws inspiration from some of the greats like Saul Leiter and Ernst Haas, as well as some incredible contemporary photographers that he has had the pleasure of connecting with through social media. As someone who deals with some anxiety issues, street photography has been life-changing for David. Becoming a form of therapy, it has helped him become much more confident and creative.
"Street photography is such a fun and accessible form of expression. I love to shoot on slightly longer lenses and use elements of abstraction, texture and vibrant colour, and I would encourage everyone to give it a go."
