The Documentary Photographer Podcast – Episode 9: David Creedon -Research, Depth and Understanding

In this episode of The Documentary Photographer podcast, we are joined by David Creedon.

David has been dubbed "Cork's Vermeer" and his work is characterised by a similar use of available light to the Dutch Master painters. In the interview, he talks about photographing abandoned houses in Ireland and inside people's homes in Cuba.

One thing that struck me during our conversation was David's deep historical understanding of the stories he photographs. He doesn't always acquire this in-depth insight before he starts taking pictures. For instance, it wasn't until after returning from Cuba and learning more about US foreign policy that he felt comfortable showing the photographs that he took.
