Damon Hunter is a fine art photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. A perfectionist, Hunter has a need for every element within an image to be precise, to find order in chaos.
However, Damon is always the passive observer; never will he add or move anything within the frame, or ask anyone to pose. In his words, “If it’s not real, I don’t shoot it.”2 hearts
The widespread abuse of prisoners is a virtually foolproof indication that politicians are trying to impose a system–whether political, religious or economic–that is rejected by large numbers of the people they are ruling.
