Gavin Beckford

The driving force behind my photography is a constant awareness of my environment, finding the beauty in the things that are often overlooked by others.
My life’s journey has taken me to many countries. Through these travels, I have come to realize that we are more alike than the sum of our overstated differences. My work is a reflection of that beautiful “sameness”. Being raised in Jamaica, educated in the USA and Spain, and now living in Detroit, my artistic eye provides me with a unique perspective on the seemingly mundane subject matter.

My goal is to use the power of the photograph to isolate the moments that people are either too busy to see or take for granted. I seek out intriguing subjects, complimentary lighting, and compelling compositions, wherever they may be. This approach has allowed me to be a bridge across social, political, and racial divides, exposing people to cultures in ways that they would not necessarily have pursued themselves.
