Interview with award-winning editorial and publicity photographer Al Overdrive
“Even from my very early days, the feedback I got was that my work felt close, not voyeuristic or sterile.”
Al Overdrive is best known for making images which reflect his cinematic approach to fashion and portraiture. His work emanates an air of relaxed honesty, capturing a moment of calm which is both empathetic and revealing. Heavily influenced by the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi (perhaps in opposition to his previous career in forensic photography) he is able to reflect the personality of the people and of clothing he shoots in a way which feels natural. Unlike most photography which emphasises distance, his work embraces proximity rending the camera almost invisible. Read my interview with Al, published on the Autographer blog here.
