My father is horse trainer and hunter, and in his younger days, was a farmer. He has lived and worked in rural New Zealand and Texas, USA. Suffice it to say that is a man of the great outdoors. The buck on the wall behind him appears to, curiously, peer out from behind his shoulder. This photo was taken in the evening at his house and the buck was bagged by him some years ago in Texas.

Photograph Location: New Zealand
Photographer: Sean Lowcay (Singapore) Registered
New Zealand born and raised, Sean Lowcay moved to Singapore in 2006 and has been photographing the wonderful people and places of Asia ever since. His passion for photography was ignited as a child, by the gift of an Instamatic camera from his mother, which he promptly started pointing at everyone and everything – a bad habit which he continues to this day, though the equipment has had an update. Sean pursues his street, portrait and fashion based photography with a dreamy, enigmatic style, creating works of beauty and mystery – which, happily, some have found to be of commercial use. He finds creative inspiration in classic movies and in the faces of the people he photographs.
