Photos by Paul D’Amato.
amazing, reminds me of philip lorca, vivian sassen and The Wire all at once. really great colours and lighting… bold and direct
i have that pillow!
fantastic use of both light and background. that’s some next-level portraiture shit!
These are beautiful, rare talent indeed.
I LOVE these portrait/photo journalistic photos. Oh the stories behind each one.. they get me asking questions , lots of them, and that to me marks a FAB photo! I would love to know what city /area these were taken if possible. Thanks! Great work!!!
JEN, These are from Paul’s series “We Shall” shot around the Cabrini-Green area of Chicago. Paul currently teaches at Columbia in Chicago. http://www.pauldamato.com/work/
Hey old man. Nice work. Shoot me an email.
Incredible work, fantastic rich lighting, superb play of contrasts (girl with a pillow, boy by the pool!!!!), more than the awesome composition balance and finally what a mood, maestro! What to say, handling street people on such level of concentration is beyond real.
beautiful, normally I don’t love staged photos but these somehow still seem so natural, I don’t know, something about them
