The Craftsmen - Photography


It's been some time since I've posted about photography and stumbling upon Dean Bradshaw's work celebrating craftsmen around Los Angeles was too beautiful not to share. We talk a lot about craftsmanship nowadays and this project illustrates the real craftsman in a brilliant way. The photos have a beautiful mood and tone with a slight reminiscence of some of my favorite movies from the 80s. Without further ado, check them out and you won't regret.

I've been photographing craftsmen around Los Angeles as a way to celebrate the hand made process and reconnect with a more authentic, fly-on-the-wall approach to photography. First a metalworker in Venice, then a carpenter and machinist in Downtown LA.
