RememberThis.photos is a collection of photographs created by Martin Trailer.
The work is created with the past in mind. Most of the photographs are simple views of vintage scenes or common objects representing the “old” days and simpler times.
Often the view will be remembrance of fun times and objects built to standards of the past. The images represent old world craftsmanship, recorded with a modern photographic approach.
The images often bring a flood of fond memories.
Though my subject matter varies, the vintage thought is always present. Texture along with color adjustments create the vintage look and feel.
An independent working photographer for 40+ years, based in San Diego, California.
I began working as a photojournalist and then moved on to working in the advertising/commercial/corporate business realm. Photojournalism, story telling, is a major influence in my work, both advertising/commercial and now fine art.
A photograph without a story, is just another snapshot. To engage the viewer, there needs to be something more, a story.
