GOOD Pictures: Introducing Our Weekly Photo Show
Our new series, GOOD Pictures, will feature work by a new photographer each week, with a focus on up-and-coming artists. We're your two curators, Stephanie Gonot and Jen Mizgata. In this introductory post, we've each chosen three photographers we love right now, and who represent the style of work we'll be showcasing in the upcoming months.
This week features work by Amy Lombard, Ari Gabel, Matthew Tammaro, Ilza Vanaga, Randy P. Martin, and Richard Nicholson. We want to hear from you! In the comments, let us know what you think of the work and suggest other photographers you’d like to see highlighted.
