Paolo Nozolino: Photographer

Okay, one of the least known and often overlooked documentary photographers has to be Portuguese documentary photographer Paolo Nozolino.
He has several books to his credit, including Far Cry, a signature of his work and a perfect example of a photographer finding a look and making it his own. You can find this read at Steidl perhaps the world's best photo book publisher.
I've never met him, or really heard much about him at all other than a small photo in an old Leica manual. But, he is the real deal. Darkness, layers and light, combined with a grain and texture to his work compliment images that most photographers might walk right by.
And, his prints. Oh......those prints. And the book printing. Like having a bound collection of silver prints in your hands.
Check him out.
