Streets of Pain & Glory. The world can be tough, cruel and sometimes its hard to get through. Photography is my therapy, helping me to reflect and understand my position in the world. It’s fascinating and painful. They aren’t winning photos I know, but just a few moments to express what I see and how I feel.

Photographer: Benjamin Gordon

Country: United Kingdom

Bio: I’m 31, and have been a music producer for the last 10 years. I recently bought a camera and have become totally obsessed. Its changed my way of seeing things. I don’t leave the house without it, ever. I’m fascinated by people and eyes. I suppose many of my pictures are stories or self-portraits because I see myself in others. I’m drawn to strength, sadness, optimism, unexpected beauty.
