Richard Maitland | Photographs of the Human Spirit


Richard Maitland, is a Jamaican photographer, with love for people and his own country. His photography, convey this love passionately. Strong expressions, bold statements, deep emotions, travel to viewer’s mind. Despair, search, query perhaps the same artist has, or I, the viewer, have, arises from the soul and reaches the lens and finally the recipient observer. Thrilled with his job which captured me strong as he captures peoples emotions. I feel Richard’s work as an artistic one and very different. Pictures following are glimpses from people of JamaicaCambodiaCosta Rica… I suggest you to see the rest of the work at his website
