in New Westminster
Unlike most of us, Doug Dorsett’s Instagram account isn’t filled with photos of cute babies, adorable dogs, food porn or selfies. Have a scroll through his account and instead you’ll be drawn into dreamlike scenes of urban beauty, decay and juxtaposition.
Inspired by travels to Paris and a lifelong love for the medium, Doug photographs the urban beauty he sees around him in Vancouver, New West and other corners of the Lower Mainland. After encouragement from his daughter spurred him to post his photographs on Instagram, he quickly drew praise from around the world. In fact, his Instagram account was recently recognized as one of the top 10 accounts for urban photography by the Guardian Newspaper in the UK.
With the goal of seeing his work make the leap from the digital to analog world, Doug will continue to be up before the sun searching for the perfect light and a unique angle on the everyday.
