Straight Up Reality

Do you every visit Gawker Artists? You totally should. I always find so much inspiration there particularly because the work that is displayed is so unique. All of the artists are bring a fresh point of view.

I am currently really loving the work of Emiliano Granado; and, in particular the Beach Party project in which he collaborated with Steven Brahms and Stephen K. Schuster.

His "bio" on his Gawker page simply states:

A lot of artists will use these /bios/ or /statements/ to ramble on and on trying to give their work additional power or legitimacy. Not here. My photographs are what they are. Straight up reality. I'm just using my camera as an excuse to peer into peoples' lives and observe them.

PS--By the way, I'm not at all biased about his work simply because he's from Argentina too:)
