News__ Saturday Selection

May 21, 2011 | By

Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool to be featured on hearty.

Dom Wilson is a 22-year-old graphic design student who is currently Based in Newcastle, England.

Part of a project, which consists of a short film, a Limited Edition photography Book (about 32 pages) and a couple of large format prints focusing on his surroundings/lifestyle, this photo is of Wilson's great uncle (89) who lives a solitary life in Rural East Yorkshire, England. The gun is an antique Italian Barreta Rifle he got from an X-Italian Prisoner of War who was sent to work on his farm.

Wilson usually shoots photos candidly, however this series was different for him, as it needed to be planned out, something he doesn't normally do. His Camera of choice is his Olympus Trip 35, but he also uses a Canon 50D,  a Praktica PL nova Film SLR and an old Zenit.

To see more of Wilson's work please take a look at his Flickr and his website.

If you want to be featured on hearty’s Saturday Selection, get a Flickr and start uploading!
