It’s not often that I mention editorial photographers here but Chris Buck is a necessary exception. According to his brief bio, he “took up photography when he found pushing a button easier than doing pencil drawings. The results were encouraging.”
I didn’t know this until recently, but apparently it was he who took one of my favorite photographs of the elusive musical genius Jeff Mangum as well as this gem. He has also shot some well-known photographers, including Philip-Lorca diCorcia.
Amongst the plethora of bad editorial photography, it always refreshing to see something I like. Keep it up, Chris.
