Good work is good work

The other day, thanks to the ubiquity of social media, I ran into a link showing the photographer Mark Cohen working the streets of Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. I had seen it before, some time ago. And Ive thumbed through his books at the Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn. I love his work.

If you havent seen his work (but you probably have) then you need to. That is, if you like photography that sucks you into a world of uncommon glimpses into a universe you may or may not have known existed. Like a good novel (or the kind I like anyway) Cohen’s work submerges me in a world of images that give me little glimpses, little slivers, of understanding my fellow man—not unlike Kafka or Pynchon or Murakami or….Well, you get the point.
Wonderful, wonderful work. Check out that video I was talking about here. And take a look at some of his work here. And be sure to check out his books Grim Street and True Color.

Cary Conover is a consummate street photographer. His work is classic, beautiful and understated. From Wichita to New York City, his photographs offer up slices of life, glimpses of people riding unicycles through the lower east side, people playing pool in bars, the lazy overgrown weeds of suburbia. He is probably one of the most underrated and overlooked photographers working in the United States today. 
Oh yeah, and this is not incidental—he is a really cool person. He is one of those people, rare, who actually listens to you when you are talking. Please go check out his work, here.

Sometimes I think I know way more than I actually do. And then I am reminded, most humbly, that I do not. And I am thankful for that. I am glad that almost every day I learn something new.
For example, I had never heard of Bruce Haley. And what a shame. He has done some really intense work; he has been around the block and then some. And he has been a witness. A powerful witness.

Shiho Fukada is one of the most interesting photographers working today. I have been watching her work for several years and I have to say I am always always interested to see what she has been up to. She has mostly stayed away from covering “events” and has instead pursued more intimate work. In fact, I think her work shows a masterly balance between being connected with her subject matter and her ability to transform what is in front of her in an aesthetic fashion.
