A one-time struggling ad writer turned up-and-coming don of Canadian photography, John Cullen's doing pretty well these days.
His varied portfolio speaks of time travelling the country and doing exactly what he loves – to the best of his considerable ability.
Of late Cullen has been turning his eye toward short-form documentaries. His first project was a profile of Herriott Grace, the father-daughter business profiled in Smith volume four. Accompanying Nikole out to her father Lance's workshop on Vancouver Island on the first day of his retirement, Cullen's film is an understated and beautifully shot ode to what can happen at the nexus of passion and craft. Kind of like his own photography, really.
