Documentary & Street Photographer Philip Joyce is the Edge of Humanity Magazine contributor of this documentary photography. From the project ‘Being Older’. To see Philip’s body of work, click on any image.
These pictures are from a wider series exploring the lives of older people through observations and encounters. They portray moments that show ordinary people, in ordinary situations, which are seen across the United Kingdom every day of the week. People go shopping, catch buses, sit, talk, walk their dog and simply look at life around them. Capturing brief moments that reflect the hopes, uncertainties and often mundane nature of lives, that perhaps, look back rather than forward.
Artist statement - Philip’s photography is mainly centered around people; a social documentary of the things we do, the places we live and the way we look. Exploring a contemporary slice of life for an imagined audience 100 years from now, who will see our present as their past. Inspired and influenced by many photographers, Philip feels his approach is best summarized by Elliott Erwitt’s view that “You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and human comedy”.
