Photo Essay

Based on 10 months of work, the revealing images of Faces of Addiction make the struggles of addicted people real and immediate.  Faces began as an art project to present 50 drug addicts as real people, so to make it possible to feel compassion for them.  Now it has grown into a body of materials that are intended to help in both prevention and rehab programs.  Faces moves us to compassion and understanding and is a calling to our better selves.  The organization’s website is https://www.facesofaddiction.net

Faces of Addiction Photo Essay
by Eric Hatch

Sometimes, but thankfully not often, the challenge is staying inspired to continually create new artworks.

Sometimes I’m mostly documenting something in the real world that I want to look at again and show others. I’m framing and adjusting exposure, but I’m ultimately just recording a nice scene. In this instance, I’m functioning as a photographer.Other times I’m editing out what I don’t care to see and taking a much more active role in what the viewer sees and focusing more on what I deem most interesting in the scene. Sometimes I’ll physically remove items from the scene that distract from the composition or even add elements to enhance it. Often that includes manipulating the light that didn’t occur in the scene naturally. In this capacity, I’m functioning more as a “Creative Photographer”.
