“Not unlike the marrying of words and music, an important aspect of Blake’s current work is the combination of subject(s) and background. The environment becomes the canvas. At the same time, there’s always a connection between the subject and the audience – which is why most of them are looking straight at the camera.
The need to work is essential. It’s what Blake does best. We are fortunate to have this collection of images. They are a testament to the humanity of the subjects and the obsessions of the photographer.”
