Docklanders may have noticed a new Instragram page presented by Docklands News (docklands_news). It’s being looked after by John Tadigiri, a young photographer who lives and works in Docklands. These are his stories…

Simply put, I love people! I find them more fascinating, more relatable, more complex, more intense, more risky and yet needing more love and hope than any other passion one can set their mind upon.

Everyone is unique and beautiful in their own sense, perfect in their imperfections.

Often, as a person outside the frame, I get to see and admire the beauty one adds to a scene, be it on a breathtaking mountain view, right among strangers buzzing around on a street or a seemingly lonely person sitting by themselves trying to remain unnoticed.

Photography, like other skills I’ve been blessed with, remains just a tool to connect with what I’m really passionate about – people! 

Growing up I was an introvert, but now, I can hardly let a stranger pass by if I have the slightest inclination to know them or their story.

For the past five years, having worked and lived and done many photo shoots here, I have grown to be a part of Docklands and can’t imagine moving away!

I consider this opportunity to partner with Docklands News as my own giving back to the community that I am grateful to God for.

If you ever see me on the streets, please don’t hesitate to beckon me for a chat. Who knows? You might even get a free photo shoot or even be lucky to have your story/photo in the next Docklands News.

This Instagram page surely needs more love and attention like many of us... if you are willing to promote this project of reaching and connecting with locals or visitors please “follow” or, even better, “share” it with your friends.
