Alfred Haymond periodically donates time with Chocolate Storytime capturing visuals.
Originally from Los Angeles, Alfred has established himself as an accomplished photographer, writer and musicologist with an impressive body of work spanning over three decades.
Alfred commonly refers to his visuals as Observational Photography, “…finding those mundane occurrences happening all around that we seldom take notice of, and visually documenting them.”
Drawing his inspiration from iconic greats of the past, the likes of Gordon Parks, Vivian Maier and Arthur “WeeGee” Fellig – Alfred takes an organic approach to composition whenever a camera is within reach. “I’ll hear the music of John Coltrane, Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye or something as equally hip, and it sets the tone for the moment. As the music plays, I’m instantly penning a short narrative in my mind – and the resulting photographs are a visual manifestation of that process.”
Alfred lives in Altadena with his beautiful wife and family. To view his work, follow Alfred on Instagram @alfredhaymond or on Facebook @alfred.haymond. You can also reach him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
