Thank you for your responses, Trey!
It was a recent photo of his that I noticed of a street scene, a self portrait really as his shadow is in it…but what separates it is the layering and resulting textures that creates this chaos out of an everyday suburban street. Life is messy, and he is able to heighten that through photographing these ordinary spaces. You can see a lot of it in the responses above, but I have only really noticed something similar with a Japanese photographer in Osamu Kanemura. Oh and he does that amazing zine series, ‘Tour Dogs” that has likely at some point featured your favorite photographer. Check them both out below:
