Maxwell Snow - Black Magic

One of the most provocative, subversive and interesting American photograph. One of the rares in this country that is able to provide an imagery with the same sharp edge and authenticity than we can usually find only in Eastern countries photography. Names of his series tells it all: "It's Fun to do Bad Things", "Jesus is Showing me Amazing Things" and "Its Only Castles Burning" (surely an hommage to the Neil Young song "Don't Let It Bring You Down"). Here a series called "Black Magic" (here Snow is rather black), not the most rudest he has done but surely the most haunted by death and sacrifice, the most metaphysical in other words. And also quite unsane. I'm not sure the guy is totally nice politically but who cares after all. Here his site.
