Test Shots by Rog Walker.

Test Shots is an ongoing series of portraits taken in the studio with photography couple Rog and Bee Walker. Each photograph, taken mostly of their close friends and fellow creatives, is as striking as it is simple.

Opting for a sombre and dark background, coupled with poised and pensive subjects, Walker’s shots manage to maximize on the simplicity of the traditional portrait style by making use of a medium format camera that provides an image quality which, despite the powerful stillness of each individual, vividly brings the details of each photograph to life. This brings out both a sense of strength and vulnerability in each picture, alluding to the intimate two-way dialog between subject and photographer.

"This is the most organic method of communication I have. Photography is the way I speak…It doesn’t get more personal than another human, and that’s what I’m looking to capture, that connection between humanity." - Rog Walker

This world is so guarded and fearful. I appreciate rawness so much. "

"My man, JD, was a true hip hop artist
I can’t explain the influence that

his mind and ear have had on my band
myself and the careers of so many other
artists. The most humble, modest, worthy
and gifted beatmaker I’ve known. And
definitely the best producer on the mic.
Never without that signature smile and head
bouncin’ to the beat. JD had a passion for
life and music, and will never be forgotten.
He’s a brother that was loved by me, and I
love what he’s done for us. And though I’m
happy he’s no longer in the pain he’d been
recently feelin’, I’m crushed by the pain of
his absence. Name’s Dilla Dog and I can only
rep the real and raw. My man, Dilla, rest in
peace.” - Black Thought
