Nicholas Haggard

Brooklyn-based photographer, Nicholas Haggard. Saw some similarities between his work and Hanitijo’s so I figured I’d post them back to back (or head to toe, I guess).

Gemma Booth

Some really fun photography from Gemma Booth. Apparently fashion photography doesn’t always have to include a bunch of naked girls! It must be pretty tough for Booth to take a bad picture when her shoots are so fantastically art-directed and brilliantly styled. Love the series with the little robot!

Ye Rin Mok

I recently discovered the photography of Ye Rin Mok, who has shot for the likes of Anthen, Nylon, Tokion, Theme, Spin, Monocle, and the list really does go on. Looking through Mok’s portfolio I discovered a large number of the photos in which the subject is actually facing away from the camera. I found the gallery jarring, and really quite powerful.

I took a class in art school called Vision, Perception and Science and we learned that there is a little sensor in the brain that is constantly looking for faces. This is why the bumper and headlights on a car look like a smiling face, and also why there is such tension in these photos. There are no faces in these portraits. Read More

Andrew Zuckerman

Andrew Zuckerman has photographed a lot of famous people – just last month his photograph of Nelson Mandela made the cover of Time magazine. His portraits are quite good but personally, I am a big fan of his landscapes…
