Every now and then Bellamy will make a request for a Visual Interviewee and immediately after seeing the Detroit Lions star’s work…of course! This is what he really does and his appreciation for everything analog extends beyond cameras to even typewriters. Bit of a renaissance figure, he really fits the mantra that “interesting people take interesting photographs.” And I appreciate the diversity of the people he photographs and the reciprocated warmth of his subjects is really special. You can catch a glimpse of his firefighter series he exhibited at the Leica NY SoHo store in response to question 3 and his Nigerian roots in response to question 11.
