Documentary Statement of Intent

For my documentary series I hope to shoot a series of images following the daily lives of urban explorers but I also hope to write a small essay to accompany the series. The main influence for this was the photographer Larry Burrows and specifically his work titled ‘Yankee Papa 13.’ In this series of images Burrows captures war through the view of one US Army helicopter gunner.

I want to give the viewer a sense of what is like to be an urban explorer as many only see the outcome of the images rather than what it actually takes for these images to be produced. In a true documentary style i hope to shoot these images digitally but add minimal editing to them.
