Contemporary Photographers

I haven’t linked to much “alternative photography” (let’s call it that, lacking a better term), simply because most is just not very interesting (to say it diplomatically - I realized my original phrasing was a bit too harsh). Curtis Mann’s work I like a lot. In a day and age where you can do everything with Photoshop, it’s great to see someone transform actual photos with stuff like bleach. And it’s particularly noteworthy to see how his approach does succeed to make connections to more traditional art forms - where digital photography often fails miserably (by producing kitschy video-game aesthetics).
