Photographer Steve Simon: New Book & Feature on The Digital Journalist
I met Steve Simon, a photojournalist and portrait photographer based in New York City at the PhotoPlus Expo in New York City. He is a very talented photographer with an extensive body of work from many parts of the world.
I was especially moved by his book, Heroines & Heroes: Hope, HIV and Africa. That book shows hopeful, inspiring images of life as well as some shocking images depicting the effects that HIV and AIDS have had in Africa. I thought that another book by Simon, The Republicans, which was shot with a “behind the scenes” feel, really showcases Simon’s talent as a visual storyteller.
Steve also recently wrote this article about the PhotoPlus Expo for CreativePro.com. I contributed a small section about some of the recent pigment-based inkjet printers that were on display at the show.
There is also a book launch & lecture by Steve Simon on December 1 in conjunction with World AIDS Day –
7pm, Barnes and Noble Chelsea, 675 6th Avenue, New York City (Corner 22nd Street).
