in the limelight

gary salter

i really LOVE this guy's work. it has a pretty commercial look, which is not something that i am overly attracted to, but his images are just awsome. his subjects are more fringe society, not the 'model' look that most photographers are attracted to. there are images of bikers, old women, prison mates in witty and humorous poses. his images activate the viewer to really love these characters and their personalities. his images also incorporate groups of people, which can be very tricky in photography. the more people there are in a scene, the more difficult the lighting becomes.
