Born in Paris, my first camera was my grandfather’s camera, a Brownie Model N2. It was a simple wooden box, but it was like magic to me. That simple box inspired the evolution of eight-year-old Roger Landry into Raw Landry.
Since 1986 I have travelled around and each destination had offered an opportunity to share my photographic skills and meet people.
My real interest lies in documentary photography because I prefer the innate power of candid, unguarded moments as I depict real-life news events.
However, photography in any form is my passion.
I particularly love the challenge of documentary photography as it forces you to portray sensitive scenes and moments without letting the presence of a camera interfere. The camera has to remain unobtrusive, in the background.
I take up this challenge in two ways:
- Street photography, akin to holding up a mirror to society, capturing life as it happens.
- Producing truthful, objective accounts of events, most often involving people as the subject material.
