snap 1: Andy Clark – Please sir, we want some more

January 21, 2014

B.C.-based Andy Clark is one of those old-school wire photographers who support the view of wire photographers as gruff, a little scary, and very, very good. But like a lot of wire photographers – also news photographers in general, judging by the many I’ve known – he might be a little prickly on the outside, but he’s all cream puff inside.

As proof, I submit this lovely, lovely photo essay from November 2013, called The Last Theatre in Town, from Powell River.

I’ll let you read the blog post, which explains how he “wandered around” to capture the life of that rare thing, the small-town picture house.

And as you’re reading that, send some vibes, some clicks to clarkfoto.ca, an Instagram follow to @andyclarkfoto and a general wish that Andy, who recently retired from Reuters, but not photography, will find many ways to keep creating and sharing his lovely photos.
