You know Joey L. His distinctive photographic style can be found pretty much everywhere, from ad campaigns for Ice Road Truckers to fine art portraits of holy men in India.
His new book, Photographing Shadow and Light, details his approach to photography and lighting and has been reviewed by Rangefinder Magazine.
“Several of the photographer’s native portrait sessions are represented in Photographing Shadow and Light—all stunning samples of this genre of travel photography,” writes Rangefinder journalist Jim Cornfield. “They’re extraordinary, in part, for his fearless approach to using hi-tech, sophisticated equipment in rough, unpredictable exteriors—gear such as Phase One camera backs and his omnipresent Profoto packs and heads. The results are elegant, superbly detailed portraits that celebrate the strange and beautiful inhabitants of these exotic stretches of our planet, and Lawrence seasons his technical solutions in these situations, with anecdotal recollections of his moments with some rare and fascinating people.”
