My favourite Photographer... who is yours?
Jun 23, 2008

I am wondering if Oly users of this forum have heard of Gregory Colbert?

He had an exhibition called Ashes and Snow in Tokyo last year and I, fortunately, happened to attend... I was utterly blown away by his photos. Amazingly, none of his images have been digitally manipulated or superimposed. They are all natural.

To me, his photos reflect the harmonious relationships between humans and wild animals that can potentially happen if we had more trust, respect and affection for them. All his images have a sepia on Japanese paper style which adds a beautiful warmth and natural feel, and his compositions have a poetic grace.

If you have never heard or seen his works, you can view his portfolio here:

Or even view his flash based one:

So, to Oly users, who is your favourite photographer and why?
