Oli Kellett has spent the last 12 months traveling back and forth to the US, making trips to LA, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, Houston, New York and Atlanta.
All on a shoestring budget, he stayed in hostels and spent his days walking city streets with minimal kit, discovering subtle differences between the cities, motivated by the endless possibility of chance. Drawing inspiration from some of the pioneers of Chicago street photography; Harry Callahan and Ray Metzker, his new collection continues the long tradition of documenting people within urban environments.
During a time of uncertainty and change, Oli found contextual interest in documenting people at crossroads, drawing on the idea of Americans finding themselves at political crossroads.
And there’s more where that came from… lookout for the next installment sometime in 2019.
