Chosen 5

by stanleymorrisphotography

Here’s 5 images I find inspiring and beautiful on the eye for different reasons for each on. Some because of their composition, some through their quality and information delivered and others through their connection to my life back home.


Kevin Carter – What I love about this image is how powerful is and how it automatically catches and shocks the audience. The photo is perfectly composed and the thought process behind taking the image and prior to it is truly incredible. an image that will simple NEVER be forgotten.



Don McCullin – The channeled composition draws the viewers attention straight to the images action. In such a hectic and chaotic time in war, McCullin has captured a iconic body shape and action in resemblance to Olympics, something completely the opposite to war.

Francis Hawkins – His image give a great documentary feel to every shoot. What I love about this image and his work is the subjects chosen and how he visually explores locations not many documentary photographers attempt and challenge.

Andrew Nadolski  – His project ‘End of The Land’ was taken at my local beach at Cot Valley, Cornwall, so my connection to his work  is clear enough in that respect. I love how he has portrayed this beautiful location with set factors, such as only shooting once the sun has set allows for a incredible fading summer light. His image really does reflect the unique location to perfection and I’ve never seen other photographers achieve this.

Robert Capa – One of the first and greatest photojournalists of all time. Capa’s image speaks to the audience with so much truth and heart, connecting the viewers to image.What I love is that the image needs hardly any add on information to it, as it says so much to the viewers from first view.
