Photographers I Love: Seydou Keita

Photographers I Love: Seydou Keita

I love how Seydou Keita’s images use the formality of 19th century bourgeoisie portraiture in an unmistakably African setting. Regarded as the father of African photography, his work continues to inspire countless artists.

Photographers I Love: Sebastião Salgado

Photographers I Love: Sebastião Salgado

Salgado left a promising career as an economist to chase his dream of being a photographer. He obviously loves and cares about the people he meets and brings his understanding of economics and how the world works to his assignments.

Photographers I Love: Nick Knight

Photographers I Love: Nick Knight

There’s something very British about Nick Knight’s photography. His works mixes both punk and old-world elegance. He’s the Alexander McQueen of photography (or maybe Alexander McQueen was the Nick Knight of fashion?).

Photographers I Love: Nadav Kander

Photographers I Love: Nadav Kander

I remember vividly when I first saw Nadav Kander’s work: I was a young art buyer at BBDO New York when his agent came to show us his books. Bill was a great agent, but Kander’s photographs didn’t need any selling.
