Photographer Of The Week: Parish Kohanim - 9/17/07
I just got off the phone with Atlanta-based beauty photographer Parish Kohanim. He's not only a great conversationalist, but also an amazing photographer whose work will not only benefit those of you who want to delve into the world of studio or fine art photography, but exploring his eloquent images serve as great exemplification of what is possible in a controlled environment, or elsewhere. With each foot planted in the separate worlds of fine art and commercial photography, Parish manages to remain true to his primary vision: creating photographs of beauty. Because he's weary of images of the horrific and painful in our mass-media culture, he consciously tries to offset that negativity by bringing just a little bit more beauty into the world. I'm particularly fond of his portraits, but there's a little something for everyone in his portfolio. Stay tuned to a future issue of Digital Photo Pro to read more about him, or head over to his Website for a sneak peek, in the meantime. Visit www.parishkohanim.com.
