John Ganis

Now and again you come across a photographer you have never heard of before and the work is simply outstanding. They have been working away quietly, unnoticed and unhindered until their project is complete. It may take months, years or even decades, but they are there in the shadows like a rare orchid.
The work of John Ganis is just that and his book Consuming The American Landscape ticks all the right boxes and leave room for a few gold stars. I came across his work a few years ago simply by chance in a book shop, a one of those 'I must have it right away and if you try and stop me I will slap your face' moments. Its not just the content which appeals to me but the technique and thought behind each image. An incredible body of work.
