Thank you for your responses, Graeme!

It was the spectrum of locations from southeast Asia to Europe and yet varying styles that intrigued me about Graeme’s work. One time talking to Rinko Kawauchi agent she showed me Kawauchi’s photos from a warzone (not sure what came of them) but I was struck that her photos were the same ..just in a warzone lol. I wouldn’t make an argument for this being either a good or bad thing, more just a contrast in approach as Graeme’s photos are a constant reaction to his surroundings with consistently great results that you can really see in his Instagram stream below. Also loved the photo to the response for question 7.
