There are people who take years to find their way. Others are different, and seem to know what their destiny is from a very young age. Joseph Anthony Lawrence, better known as Joey L., is one such person.
He picked up his father’s compact digital camera at the age of ten, and what started as a hobby eventually became a great life passion: photography.
Today Joey L. is 26, owns a photographic studio in Brooklyn and is the eye behind the pictures in the 2016 Lavazza Calendar, “From Father to Son”.
This is a piece of photojournalism that compares the old and new generations of #EarthDefenders: young growers committed to defending the biodiversity of their land, whilst always respecting traditions.
At the centre of Joey L.’s lens there is photographic research that makes people and their stories the lead characters.
