So, Matt and I have been heavily influenced by master b&w photographers from America's golden ages. William Gedney, Walker Evans, Danny Lyon, Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White etc.... are just a few. Ultra cool American photography is TOP. Black and white, high or low contrast, effortless composition that allows anyone to be transcended into any moment of any given image from the 40s-70s...this is great photography in our minds. If ever you wanted a good book on your coffee table, The Americans by Robert Frank is a total must-buy / must-have.
