Every day we look at hundreds of images without knowing the backstories or for that matter the artists involved. I started "Why?" so you could put some of the most respected artists in our industry on your radar!
This new "Why?" is especially fun because it's by an artist of an artist. Chicago-based photographer Bob Davis is in the spotlight today with two very different images of Annie Leibovitz. It's a great story from an incredibly diverse artist. And both of these images were captured back in his days when Bob was working for the Chicago Sun Times and done on film - no chimping!
Bob's a photographer, most often recognized for his wedding and portrait work, but there's nothing he can't photograph. He's also an outstanding educator, writer, and friend to so many people in the industry. Follow Bob's workshop schedule with a click on either of the "Why?" images above. And, if you'd like to see more of his client work and get to know both him and Dawn, visit their site. It's just a click away.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
