Phillip Toledano

I first saw Phillip Toledano's work via his "video gamers" project. In his words: "I wanted to take portraits of people that would reveal a hidden part of their character. So I had them play video games." They are truly original. A coworker of mine turned my attention to him again, this time to his "Bankrupt" series. The project of photographing deserted offices of bankrupt companies turned out to be more insightful than I could have imagined. The seemingly empty spaces tell a stories of places that once were bustling with life. Check them out here. ••••

What a big difference from the video game series!

These pictures are so depressing. Interesting that its from the same photographer.
