Jason Florio

from Makasutu © Jason Florio

Via PDN's Picture of the Day I came across the work of Jason Florio, who currently has a show up in Chelsea.

I like work best that has content, is ethically sound and that shows a command of the medium. Thus it is no surprise that I love Jason's "Makasutu" series. These are beautiful portraits and I don't sense that the sitters were being exploited --as unfortunately otherwise often is the case.
Find out more about this work at: www.floriophoto.com or get a copy of the book via blurb.com.
