I was on a photography shoot in Labrador, Canada exploring the communities that dot the region. It's rare that I photograph people, however, when I saw this old man I knew I had to make a photograph of him.
He had been walking along a muddy road and I found a spot ahead of his path; I setup my tripod and made a short series of exposures using my Hasselblad 300mm lens and 1.7x extender. I didn't want to raise suspicion so I worked rapidly and quickly packed up and drove off.
Several weeks later, when the film was developed, I felt it would be better if he were looking to the right (his left) so I flipped the image (you can see the text in the badge on his jacket is reversed).
I made this photograph on Fuji Velvia film ISO 400 with my Hasselblad H2 camera.
