Photofusion Member | Travis Hodges
Travis is a London based photographer. He is fascinated by people and uses his camera to explore what makes them interesting, from well-documented celebrities to those who have never stood before a professional photographer in their lives.
His work, from time-pressed editorial shoots to longer-term personal projects, is people-driven and examines what makes us who we are.
His awards include the Royal Photographic Society 155th print exhibition; the Observer Hodge Award and the Jerwood Photography Award. When he’s not behind the camera, Travis organises the monthly Photo-Forum talks in central London, where working photographers can discuss and debate their images, ideas, and approaches.
Below are a selection of images from three of Travis’ photographic projects…
Deadtime – Portraits of adolescence. “I’m surprised you spoke to us, most people just tell us to F off” Are these young people the feral youth the media portrays them as, I set out to get behind the stereotype placed on, and adopted by, those between childhood and adulthood.
Follow Me – The network of connections built through Twitter. Each subject is asked to select the next from those they follow creating a chain of individuals connected through social networking.
The Protesters – Portraits and quotes from protesters in London, By picking individuals out of the crowd I hope to show what motivates people to stand up for a cause.
