The Cadillacs from the ‘50s got longer, wider, badder (in the best sense of the word) every year. It’s no surprise that whenever Hollywood and the music business need an ultimate symbol of the Fifties, they wheel out the ‘59 Cadillac.
These black and white images were taken when I lived in Mexico in the mid-80's. The color photographs are from a series of over 400 photographs which were taken while I was working as the location sound recordist and still photographer
Architecturally, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania punches above its weight. For a mid-sized American city, it has a rich agglomeration of fascinating buildings, largely thanks to the city’s storied industrial past.
This is a series of images from the most recent Gerewol festival in the Sahel desert in Chad. At this festival, an exciting beauty contest takes place where men from the Wodaabe tribe, a group of nomadic cattle herders, prettify themselves and dance for hours on end. They do so, hoping to be picked by Wodaabe women as a winner, and possibly a mate. It is no doubt a unique event and quite impressive to...
I began making portraits of Native Americans several years ago when I was introduced to Anthony Parker. Anthony is a member of the Omaha tribe and a celebrated pow wow dancer. I photographed him near Santa Fe, New Mexico, not far from his home in Albuquerque.
During a shoot with the beautiful Riley Anne last fall, her close friend Sophie came up in conversation. I expressed how I've wanted to work with her, but she never seems to be around.

The Minstrel Show was one of the largest American theater movements in history that would eventually evolve into Vaudeville. It consisted of comic skits, variety acts, dancing and music, performed by white people in blackface.
I probably use every tool imaginable to shape the images. It’s really a variety of techniques that come together that creates the affect I like. I clean up the surfaces very laboriously, and I do a lot of dodging and burning to make more minimalistic and smooth. I also do color shifting. The end product looks a world different than the raw files.
My photographs in this series are metaphors for the interior lives of women; how we substitute everyday objects and artifice and turn them into obsessions. As for the Nightmare picture, I was thinking about the monster under the bed that we knew was there as children.
From spirit animals to archetypes, ANIMAL MYTHOS is a collection of visual stories about our ancient connection to our animal kin — and the animal within us all. From the shared lore that connects our disparate cultures to the place animalistic imagery occupies in our dreams

It is strange indeed to see where fate can lead you. A 25 years ago Nathalie Daoust, a Canadian photographer, went to New York City to do a shoot of mens clothing on location in the Carlton Arms Hotel.
Everything that I think and desire has the single aim of thinking about the unifying these fragments, these enigmas and these frightful randomnesses. How would I support my own humanity if man were not at the same time a poet, a decoder of enigmas and redeemer of randomness?
As a photographer and biochemist, I am fascinated by the origins of life – that moment in Earth’s history when amorphous organic matter transformed into complex structures that evolved into living organisms.

I moved to the South Shore of Nova Scotia in 2004 and have walked my dogs along the shoreline ever since. There is a special quality of light here. It sinks into your soul and becomes a part of how you view the world. I watch the shore as a flâneur of light.
I think my work touches on the relationship between all of these elements; the imagined, death and the landscape. The theme of death is something which has come about indirectly, as a result of my interest in other ideas such as dystopia, memory and the uncanny.
A rare and exquisite working moment captured between a photographer and his model. I have spent my entire life as an artist. It is not what I do. It is who I am. In the art community, I have seen enough of the good, the bad and the mediocre.
My grandparents' house, set back from the street, right in the middle of town, stood on a couple of acres. A vegetable garden in the back, pecan trees in the front, and fruit trees all around seemed commonplace.

I am a humanitarian photographer. The camera is my tool. I give voice to marginalized communities and witness to the human experience. My work celebrates the individual’s strength and beauty, as well as their vulnerability and spirit, going beyond how one presents oneself to the world.
Isabel just turn 6 years old, she is my brother’s daughter. We have made this pictures during the last three years. I write “we have made” because Isabel took pictures too, with an analogue camera like mine. She invited me to her world and I invited her, maybe, one projecting on the other. Those toys that belonged to my childhood are still in that same house, that never changed, where Isabel and I inhabit that...
My work is rooted in the serenity I find in the sinuous elegance of organic forms. I’m transfixed and transformed in the art of capturing the stillness of the suspended movement of light and compelled to preserve the visual poetry of these fleeting moments of vanishing beauty in our vulnerable environment.
No Memory is Ever Alone is a visual conversation between my dad and I. He used to bring out a box of slides that he photographed in his late teens and early 20s every Christmas and made us view them on an old projector on our living room wall telling the same stories every year.

The actual idea for the series started after visiting the International UFO Congress in Phoenix. I was impressed by the multitude of people attracted to this event and the secrecy surrounding the theme.

Paris is one super aperture, set in deep focus for over a thousand years, and it encompasses many variegated thematic apertures: thresholds, that yield a myriad perspectives on the specific facets of this ancient cultural capital.
The essay photograpy with which Edu Monteiro presents Ladja is simple. In it, an African descendant man partially immersed in water holds a drum. The grip tension seems to be aimed less at protecting the drum from encountering water and more at bringing it along, connecting it to oneself.
The series “Easton Nights” began in late 2015 as an exercise in night photography, inspired mostly by the poetic shots of George Tice. The exercise soon evolved into an obsession, not just with the night or night photography.
