“Roy: I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched
C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tan Hauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain.
Time to die.”
This is why I make images... so that all my moments will NOT... “be lost in time like tears in rain.”
~ Skip Hunt
“There’s a generation, like mine (like yours, maybe), which grew up with the idea of the author photo-reportage image, and fell in love with the wonderful media – photography – that has opened far away horizons, and has stimulated the will to look beyond the borders and discover cultures, colours, clothes and emotions that are far from us.
These photos were once hosted in magazines that made people dream. Some of them exist today, like National Geographic… and others that years ago used to explore journeys and dreams, using images.
Skip Hunt is a photographer who lives in Austin, Texas. Well, I mean that’s his residence, but his mind, his heart and his camera are always traveling to find and catch exotic places and then share his feelings with the lucky people that can see his images, so incredibly wrapped up in a unique atmosphere that lets you feel and taste colours and light, but also – as if in a magical ether – the sounds, the flavours (mostly spicy ones), scents and vibrations.
Each Skip Hunt photograph is the synthesis of a life experienced, it is not just the reporter’s curiosity – that
often dominates in photography today, linked to an event or a precise narration – but the willingness to walk next to the subjects of the photos through their worlds and let us live the feelings he absorbs and perceives.
For a second, for a minute… or for all the necessary time. Have a grand journey through the photos of these
emotions and feelings reported, look at his gallery and sink into one of his wonderful worlds. You likely
won’t want to leave…”
