Derek Clark | Motherwell, Scotland.
I am a freelance documentary photographer and for the past three years I have been living on the road as a nomad. Traveling the world in search of, well, many things. Images, people, experiences, places, me. I still live as a nomad. I aspire to become a visual storyteller and documentarist.
My background is mostly in landscape photography but I now focus primarily on documentary photography. My greatest passion lies in capturing the people of our world and our many different living conditions and the contrast and drama of nature vs mankind. I wish for my images to show that our everyday lives, no matter where we live, are much more alike than different. I feel strongly that this must encourage us to treat each other more kindly, with more respect and compassion. Racism, prejudice, oppression, sexism, any form of discriminatory treatment should have no place in our world. It is an issue I feel strongly about and will continue to document.
