Performance shots are a waste of time, they look like everyone else’s. If you want to shoot a performer, then grab them, own them, you have to own people, then twist them into what you want to say about them.

  1. The late Art Kane is one of my inspirations. His editorial work while often rejected by magazines for nudity was photography telling stories at its best. I particularly love “We the People” made for Look magazine in 1961. Go to then click editorial to see this photograph. It’s a flash site so iOS users will want to use a computer.
    Unfortunately, Art Kane took his life in 1995 at the age of 69.
