“I am Amerikan” by Rafael Fuchs April 6, 2009

bookrafaelMy friend Rafael Fuchs is one of my favorite photographers ever. He has a way of taking the normal and highlighting the surreal within. Now Rafael has a new self-published book, “I am Amerikan” with only 300 limited edition copies. Like everything Rafael does, it’s intense. Preview “I am Amerikan” here.


Rafael Fuchs’ Extraordinary Photography January 12, 2009

rafaelRafael Fuchs has got to be one of the most extraordinary photographers I know. I worked with him on a fashion shoot, and while the shots that ran in the magazine were lovely and vibrant, it was his outtakes posted on his web site that showcased his skill and finesse with color and shadow and catching photography’s in-between moments. I mean, I was right there on set, looking at the shots as they were being taken, and I still didn’t see what he saw. That’s what separates the men from the boys, so to speak, and real artists from the merely pretty fashion photographers. See Rafael’s provocative work here.
