Photography Book- On Series by Monique Campbell
Size: 7" x 7", 76 pages (black and white and colour images)
In a flash of perception Monique identifies a moment and clicks the shutter already knowing the end result will demonstrate her empathy and intimacy. Monique finds interest by observing the mundane, the ordinary and the moments most people take for granted. She excels in producing captivating photographs that tell stories that linger in the minds of her viewers.
