lauren Dukoff is my favorite photographer of all time. she is noted for her portraits of famous celebrities and musicians, but it's far from the regular pictures that you view in magazines. she strictly works in black and white (and sometimes color) film, a rare and increasingly fading photography style. her work is what inspired me to want to pursue a career of fashion portraiture and editorial photography. through her artistic eye, she shows the world more than just the pretty face of a celebrity--she shows their vulnerable side as well.
