On show at the Hillyer Art Space in Washington DC, Foster’s collection titled Land That We Love highlights his experiences in the country Sierra Leone. Previously having spent time photographing in Ghana, Lloyd Foster is able to capture the raw and real of any human, culture and society.

Beautifully, Foster’s work appears effortless in authenticity as his ‘models’ are everyday people. From children to elderly, men and women, Foster is able to show the ‘resilience of the people who always find ways to rebuild during difficult times’. As a welcomed change from the typical posed, photoshopped and phony photography we see throughout media today, the humble talents of this photographer provides a generous dose of reality.  Indeed, Fosters’s ability to capture the essence of genuine people a clear example that there is true in everyone.
