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:)

HAHAHAHA! Oh Miss Lizzy Marie's comment, I die. I kind of would have run away from all things spring breaky, so looking at these raunchy yet amazing pictures from afar is wondrous. Um, I LOVE the first one, she's got that pose down just like a good strippah.

I love the candid nature of these photographs. There's no pretense or false glamour here - they pretty much sum up spring break the way most people experience it ;-) Thanks for sharing!
