In January Bobby Mills joined Lucy Bentham in our talks around the theme of escapism. We caught up with Bobby to ask a little more about the project he spoke to us about Man. Do you think the way in which you approach your photography has changed after discovering the life of Manfred and his story? I’m not sure my approach has changed in as much as it has developed. It’s been a huge learning curve, from working around language […]
