Someone asked me recently, “Which photographers inspire you the most?” And I actually had to think about it for a moment. I can quickly rattle off a list of famous photographers whose work has influenced me. But I wanted to share the work I’ve been reflecting on most recently – and, as it turns out, it’s largely created by photographers you’ve probably never heard of.
I’ve written before about how much I hate wedding photography and the incessant need to devour the same images over and over again. But there ARE wedding and portrait photographers whose work moves me and motivates me. Rather than feeling overwhelmed when I look at these photographs, I feel empowered, refreshed, and part of something so much greater than myself.
