There’s others. I think of the legendary Michael Jang; there’s the quiet and brilliant Alan Dejecacion whose SF street shots Vantage featured in July; there’s the everywhere names of Travis Jensen and Erik Kim; there’s sexy time Joe Aguirre and Mark Murmann the photo editor at Mother Jones; then there’s Stephen McLaren’s fresh eyes on his new home city; and there are shots from Rian Dundon’s Out Here.
To degrees it always has been, consider the old guard — Maury Edelstein, John Harding, Vladimir Panasenko and Ted Pushinsky (many of whom remain active). But there’s young pretenders too. I can’t write down the names fast enough as Troy rattles off a list of photographers he knows and loves— Ben Molina, Lula Ore, Chris Beale, Brian Brophy, David Root, Monika Valecka, Jack Simon, Brandon Doran, Emmanuel Blackwell, Brian Sorensen to name a few.
