Alexey Titarenko City of Shadows 1

In the aftermath of the Soviet Union’s collapse, people wandered the northern city of St. Petersburg like shadows of their former selves. It was the beginning of 1992, the middle of winter, and photographer Alexey Titarenko was walking the streets of his native city during a short, dark day. The strange quiet of the once joyful and dynamic place struck him, as did the empty shelves in stores and the desperation on the faces of a population caught up in the midst of political upheaval. He pulled out his camera. [Read more…]

The Makeout Project Jedediah Johnson 1

Jedediah Johnson says he picked up photography as a way to meet girls he could kiss.

Shortly after he removes his lips – but before he removes his steadying hand – Jedediah takes his photo. [Read more…]
