Alex Prager – Face in the crowd

with one comment

When you study the images from Alex Pragers “Faces In The Crowd” up close, you may just notice that all of what you see is no accident. Each of the images in her series is perfectly choreographed. Every position and every expression is carefully calculated to give the viewer the exact image that the photographer initially intended.

leave a comment »

In every school picture for the past 40 years, Dale Irby wore the same 1970s-era polyester shirt and coffee-colored sweater.

Didn’t want you to miss out on this one.

Alexander Gronsky – Pastoral

with one comment

Sometimes you come across a photographer at whose images you’re looking open-mouthed. Estonian photographer Alexander gronsky is one of them. His series Pastoral is an incredible collection of 65 (!) images. They look like an exponent of Carl De Keyzer, Jeff Wall & Alec Soth but still completely different and above all competely coherent.
