Malcolm prefers to concentrate on the root causes of a society’s problems rather than the headline making violence, believing wholeheartedly that only by understanding the lives of others may we find the strength to change. That means he is increasingly representing the poor in his work and how the environment is impacting on their lives. He chooses to photograph with the most basic equipment and the surfaces of his images are marked with scratches and dust, showing the circumstances under which the images were made. Rather than slicing instances he manages to hold moments of time as if we, like the subjects are holding our breath.
