Marian said...

Oh wow, I'm kind of fascinated with these! Love all the kid ones...but my favorite, I think, is with the screaming boy and the sister, I assume, covering her eyes. I know her pain!

Gabbi said...

God, I love his work! I've never seen some of these before and my first time seeing and favorite is the LOST persons area... so funny. I wonder what it was? :)

Brandi said...

I love these. They are all so different from each other. I think my fave is the second one.

He is one of my favorites. I have never seen that first photo before. Very haunting.

He's such an incredible photographer. The dog pictures are so famous, but some of these I'd never seen before.

Lynn said...

This guy is now my new favorite photographer. Thank you for the introduction!

Jess said...

When I picked up one of his photography book for the first time, I decided to learn photography.

If I never saw that book, I'd be doing something else than photography.
He is amazing. Funny and yet inspiring =)

Katie said...

Now, I know I'm supposed to write something deep about the photos, but I can't quite get over the hover dogs plus the hilarious placement of the melons (har de har). There's something about taking hilarious, wry photos in black and white that makes it 20x better.

These are brilliant. And I'm going to live in the second picture.

Phoenix said...

These are amazing! Very dark, very visual sense of humor, which I know is right up your alley (and right up mine.) I love them, even if some are a little disturbing!

adrienzgirl said...

These are amazing! Love the kids!

Haute World said...
