Photography by Will AdlerJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 21 Feb 2012
Santa Barbara-based photographer Will Adler has an eye for creating beautiful sharp, yet disorienting images. The photographs confuse and crop reality that asks the viewer to question the truth of the photograph and consider the manipulation of lighting and perspective that photography involves. Some are absurdly deadpan, straight photographs, while others are noticeably more intricate in their staging. Adler's collections of photos push us back and forth, in and out of reality, all with a sly wink of humor that keeps you grinning.
