On a muggy sunny afternoon, I caught up with an Augusta, GA photographer by the name of Hare. What attracted me to his portfolio was seeing the grungy effect on shoots of random objects. In my opinion, it added some sort of drama or story to his work. Hare walked in ready to shoot and ready converse on his inspirations and what started his whole Harerrorism movement. Over a bowl of French onion soup, I was all ears.
What made you start doing photography?
I’ll say being away from my parents when I moved to Atlanta. I was roaming around and seeing different things. Not having an device to hold those memories and capture those moments.
So you’re saying getting out of Augusta, GA and seeing an new scenery the culture, the fashion, and architecture inspired you?
What are some things you would like to see change with photography in Augusta?
I’d like to see more people just be more creative because a lot of people I see or meet you know… I commend. I’m far from cocky but I feel as far as photographers here their creativity… they ain’t got it. They have the equipment or the subjects and even the scenery but they don’t have the vision.
