BIG pic­ture

An in­trigu­ing project ex­plor­ing workspaces around the world

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

US-based pho­tog­ra­pher San­wal Deen, orig­i­nally from Pak­istan, is work­ing on a se­ries of im­ages de­pict­ing ca­reers around the world by shoot­ing workspaces from above.

To date, Deen has pho­tographed 12 peo­ple, but his even­tual aim is to shoot 100. He uses a Has­sel­blad X1D with a 45mm lens

and says, ‘ Typ­i­cally it is shot with the cam­era at­tached to a boom tri­pod. The tri­pod is old and bulky, so I need to add coun­ter­weights on one end so it doesn’t top­ple. I place two speed­lights on ei­ther side of the workspace. The en­tire set- up process typ­i­cally takes 15- 45 min­utes, de­pend­ing on how big or small the space is, and how busy it is.’
