    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!

  • adam

    fantastic use of both light and background. that’s some next-level portraiture shit!

  • Phil

    These are beautiful, rare talent indeed.

  • Jen

    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/

  • Rivard

    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

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December

december-600

Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
