Photographer I admire:

I am impressed with Ami Vitale:
Her images are, in my opinion, very well done. Close scrutiny suggests considerable “darkroom” work” that doesn’t change the image’s statement but enhances it. Art schools teach to “simplify and exaggerate” and I believe that is what she does. Subtle vignetting and subduing of extraneous or distracting areas turn her “news reporting” photographs into art and a pleasure to look at.
