There are two photographers that I’ve been looking at as of late, Joel Sternfeld, and Pentti Sammallahti.
I find their work striking, ordinary, human, humane, and images of life situated in a bigger picture we find ourselves in. There also seems to be clearly a deliberate and patient act of looking, and waiting for them to find their pictures.
I encourage you to simply take time to look at what they’ve found. Their images are quite engaging.
