This is going to sound like an insult, but it's not at all - I love how he makes the images seem 1 dimensional, kind of like the people meld into the settings around them. It's a really cool effect.

Vivienne said...

Those are great! I like the little kid and "Imagine" the best.

(But I'm sentimental that way...)

Dancing Branflake said...

I have to say, as a California girl, I don't know if I'm proud or just incredibly sad. So much hurt in the world!

Lorena said...

Richard Nagler is a talented photographer. He works diligently to produce this series in which he matches a single word with a single person. The photographs are available at the George Krevsky Gallery in San Francisco, and are pretty affordable!
