Contemporary photographers

Photographers that are shooting today and whose work is interesting for one reason or another.

  • Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre are two French photographers whose series, “The Ruins of Detroit,” covers much of the same ground as my older and ongoing project, “American Ruins”: the wreckage of a once-great nation on the edge of its final dissolution and decay. Although in their case the subject is limited to downtown Detroit, Michigan, the theme is identical.

  • tos/sbprzd/">Seb Przd's original and mind-bending "images that cannot be taken with physical cameras." (His open-source algorithmic, processed technique uses topano-sift/">panoramas and stitching and overlapping, plus much more.)
