12 Masters of Visual Storytelling

While some may say that every picture tells a story, I’m under the belief that only a few can do it right. These are the masters of storytelling, the ones who can draw out an emotion in us and leave us with a lasting memory. We’ve written about some of these photographers right here at theMET. Like Erik Johansson who stretches our imagination and turns reason upside down and inside out. Or August Bradley, who crafts amazing scenes out of his imagination and who cites authors, such as Thomas Pynchon and David Foster Wallace, over fellow photographers as his sources of inspiration. Thank you, photographers and artists, for showing us your point of view. For explaining that it’s our stories that connect us and our life experiences that bind us. Thank you for being today’s modern-day storyteller. Erik Johansson
