- With each shot, I aim to make the viewer feel as if they were present with me in the process of capturing that moment.
A view from the soul, within that solo moment..
I'm Justen Hollins, a photographer and writer based in Las Vegas, Nevada by way of Dayton, Ohio.
Growing up as a kid in Ohio, I developed an interest in the arts around the age of 5,
which started out as poetry. I spent the early years of my childhood using my grandfather's typewriter & filling up composition notebooks front to back with short haikus.
Shortly after, I began taping pictures I'd take from my mother's polaroid and film camera to add another touch of art to my poetry..
As time passed and as life continued to manifest, my interest in photography continued to grow.
The imagery that poetry painted played a vital role in my attraction towards the visual arts; being able to see the story/vision, not with just imagination but to be able to see time frozen, the essence, the moment..
My main areas of focus are portraiture, lifestyle, fine art and street photography.
