Chris Hinkle photographer...documentary images, on the street, on assignment, of family life, in color, and in black and white...I work in the realm of documentary, then use those images to form the narrative.  I love how life looks in the still image, not produced, not manipulated, rather just the way it is in front of me.  The Leica M and the 35mm Summicron is my camera and lens of choice.  I use Capture One for software and do minimal processing, such as would be done in the darkroom...I'm not a fan of cloning photos nor sheep.
