Shoot the Breeze: Garrett Lockhart

Garrett Lockhart is a photographer from Nanaimo, BC, who lives and works out East now. He sent us some new work as a Thanksgiving present –  a pink sunset, a blue umbrella, nice things to look at. I’m really into his car series, which is a compilation of close-ups of car paint jobs. Have a look below! – CM
