Bob O'Connor - Echoes

A young professional who was raised in the digital age prefers film and available light when he's behind a camera and goes high-tech in post

Bob O'Connor - Echoes

The MTV generation is all grown up. The young punks are now doctors and lawyers—and professional photographers with blossoming client lists that grow as fast as their reputations. For these Gen-Xers, television has always been in color, computers have always been personal and technology usually holds an answer for everything. But for Boston-based photographer Bob O'Connor, a 29-year-old who grew up in the heart of the Information Age, the high-tech approach isn't his approach. Instead of complex lighting and expensive digital cameras, O'Connor prefers working with the tools from previous generations—available light and large-format print film. Why?

Bert Monroy - Re-Creating Reality

Bert Monroy is a Photoshop master who uses software like a brush and canvas all at once. He's not a photographer, but a digital painter who pushes the software envelope to create his art

Bert Monroy - Re-Creating Reality

Bert Monroy makes beautiful photographic images, but he doesn't do it with a camera. His photographs aren't photographs, and he's not even a photographer. He's a painter. Beginning with a blank canvas—actually, a blank computer screen—Monroy meticulously creates detailed images from sketches, notes and snapshots. Most people call Monroy a photo-realistic painter because they mistake his work for photography.

What could be more populated and traveled than the route of the No. 7 train?

Simon Bruty - Athletics

As a society, we're addicted to sports—the Super Bowl, the World Series, NBA basketball, March Madness—the list goes on and on.
