Dirk Rees Shoots New Personal Project
Dirk has had some fantastic commercial opportunities this year, working with a large production team on a lavish cliff-top shoot for Molton Brown’s latest campaign.
His recent personal work however, is perhaps a natural counterpoint, having gravitated to a much more intimate space with this latest series: Intimate Portraits of an Ageing Man.
Exploring the frailties of age, this portrait series shines with the open honesty of its subject - Tony Greengrass - who discussed his triple heart-bypass with Dirk during the shoot.
Far from dark or dour however, Dirks images celebrate the life represented by the weathering of the human form, and the enduring spirit of adventure in his subject.
