nick´s lunch box

Thomas Lobenwein

James Pomerantz is a New York based photographer who allows himself to walk through different styles of photography. He works on documentary topics as well as on artist style pieces.

Bruce Gilden

If you don’t dare to take pictures of people you don’t know, just remember Bruce – it might help. There are some other videos about him on youtube, e.g. this slideshow of his Coney Island series with comments on the pictures by Gilden.
