Tess Seymour // Wales

I am in essence a documentary photographer. My aim when shooting is to capture the truth of the emotion in whatever environment I am placed. I do this by following the people around me, their laughter and in some cases their tears. My photographs have a movement to them and I thrive on capturing those special moments exactly as they happened. This is the practice I have developed over the past three years. My empathetic and observant nature allow me to tell a person's story with respect and with honesty. I would like to be considered for the next stage of this competition as I believe that my style perfectly suits the aim of this competition.
