Duncan Petrie is a photographer using spare, striking composition and the best natural light to emphasize emotion over the literal image and truth over objectivity, in hopes that he might one day capture how it feels to truly see.
During our conversation Duncan talks about Sudoku and its relationship to being creative; being afraid of doing something poorly; why beginning is the hardest part; fear of stagnation; the relationship between good photography and enthusiasm and the magic of observing the little details that imply so much more than what they actually contain.
You can find Duncan in the woods or near a body of water on the South West Coast Path in Cornwall UK or near Lake Michigan in Wisconsin, USA.
