Photo portraits of Model Railway Enthusiasts

David Vintiner is a British portrait photographer living in London. These portraits are from a personal project, Enthusiasts, which was selected for the Creative Review Photography Annual last year. He writes: ‘My Enthusiasts were shot on location at a model railway exhibition in Birmingham, England. In my photography I’m drawn to the subtlety of the everyday, in this case, passion for a hobby’.

The neutrality of the background allows us to focus on the differences between an apparently similar group of sitters. I chose to shoot each of these portraits with available light to create an intimacy and subtlety which draws the viewer in to each character, encouraging them to observe the personal detail’.
