Trey Hill Photographs

it’s a small internet-world after all

Posted in personal, random by Trey on October 27, 2008

i used to sell MINI’s and had the great pleasure of meeting really interesting people every day. on one such occasion, a DMN turned L.A. Times photojournalist, Damon Winter, happened into the dealership with a friend of his.

Sen. Barak Obama by Damon Winter, New York Times

there was an article about him in Communication Arts at the time and i was just beginning to think my photography could actually earn me money (i’m not sure if the Relevant cover had happened yet or not), so getting to have a conversation with him was a pretty big deal for me.

right after he left the dealership, i hopped onto his website and was promptly blown away; in the process i was introduced to the work of Allison V. Smith, on who’s blog I found a link to this body of brilliant work by DMN turned L.A. Times turned N.Y. Times photojournalist, Damon Winter.

it seemed like a much bigger deal when i conceived the entry.

but, please, if you do nothing else while on the internet today, go check out Damon’s work from the campaign trail; whatever your feelings on politics, this race or Sen. Obama, his images are beyond brilliant. make sure you select full screen and have the sound turned up.

    ever since Al told me about your blog – i have tried to keep up and really admire your work, and your eye. i like it because you don’t just take a picture – you capture a moment (wow, that sounded cheese-bag). thank you for sharing this link as well – really amazing shots.
