Fielding’s human exploration of vision, perspective and vitality are captured by his acute detail to light and shadow, surface, and design, where documentary-style street photography meets portraiture. Some may feel that the aesthetics of Fielding’s photographs are disturbing, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it? And maybe that notion should be questioned more often.
