Ari Gabel

it felt like just the other day that i posted about Ari Gabel’s arresting self portraits – but that was more than two years ago now! i had a long browse through his website and flickr recently, and i am very taken by the new projects he’s working on and his ongoing portraiture photography.

Ari Gabel is a working photographer whose main concentration deals with the documentation of the vanishing faces and stories held within countless individuals across the American landscape. His work is both a balance of research and shear instinct, allowing him to explore the environment around him and establish a common understanding of the land. His use of analog cameras is not due to the rarity of it’s existence in modern times, but for for the quality it posses and the personable connection it creates with the subject.

    I love the atmosphere ot these photos. Long, american road, path to nowhere, looking for something impossible to find, the light similar to this from Hopper’s works and nostalgia from Murakami’s books… That’s what I, personally, find in those pictures.

    His work is very interesting. It’s gritty and real and makes you look at things differently. Can’t quite place what I feel when I see them!
