I really like Hank Willis Thomas’ work, especially “Unbranded”, which shows images taken from ads specifically addressed at African Americans, with all text and logos removed. In contrast, the “Branded” series I find a bit too obvious (not that that’s necessarily a bad thing). Hank’s work was part of Leslie Martin’s “Ubiquitous Image” at the recent NY Photo Festival; and you can also find a lot about his work over at Nina’s blog.
