Exposure № 047: Small Town Inertia


Photographer JA Mortram is our guest editor this week, bringing us some fantastic fellow photographers as well as fiction from author John McIntyre.

These pieces are from Small town inertia : Electric tears and all their portent, a documentary about schizoid obsessiveness, addiction, creativity, family and how certain geographical locations are seemingly inescapable.

JA Mortram is naturally drawn to people, circumstances and situations that inspire him to discover more about them and to give a voice to the seldom noticed or heard. For the last 18 months, together with people on or far beyond the outskirts of his local community, he has been recording a series of environmental portraits, interviews and straight documentary shoots of people’s lives, stories and memories. Recently he has been volunteering with local Mental Health projects, teaching photography in his spare time, and it has been amazingly rewarding.

His other contributions to Dr. Hurley’s Snake-Oil Cure can be found here.
