This website is the photographic work on my late Father David Motta. In life he achieved many things, winner of 1 BAFTA award and party to the winning of 2 Oscars as a Boom operator, but outside of the film industry he loved to take photos.
Everywhere he went the camera never left his side, constantly capturing the moment and then spending time alone deep into the night working diligently for nothing more than the art he loved and cherished.
He had no desire for fame or to make a living out of it, he just enjoyed being behind the lens, that was simply enough.
I hope you enjoy his work as much as he enjoyed working on it.
“…is the reality of our existence not mirrored in
these things we have so confidently discared?
The naked faded stuff of empty boxes, pencil stubbs,
torn envelopes and pages of scribbled corrections…”
