Frank Herholdt's photographs speak to us so forcefully because they come from a discipline that is pre-digital. His mentors are the great British Theatre and portrait photographers of the 50's - 60's - 70's; and one of the last great Hollywood Cinematographers of the 70's - 80's.
This is why his photographs have such a theatrical and cinematic punch. Their Drama also comes from the fact that pre-digital is totally reliant on the fantastic concentration of the shoot itself. Everything you're looking at in camera and in the moment.
In spite of the fact that Frank has embraced digital technologies, his new images still use the same disciplines and atmosphere of the pre-digital era.
