Photographer Todd Baxter was PDN's Guest Editor, Liz Miller Gershfeld's Pick.
In her own words, Liz states:
" -- Themes of taxidermy, disaffection and 70's era A/V equipment made me look twice at Todd Baxter's unique vision of the world around him. His vision is strong, but its execution subtle. I called in his book and there is more there: strong problem solving and a little more ferocity. All of it beautiful and in a palette that hangs together. His styling is quirky and smart and works really well. I love the woman with the skinned knees lying at the foot of a tree and the bird cupped in someone's hands. It makes me feel bittersweet, like Radiohead. I am excited he is in my own backyard of Chicago."
I took a look at his work ad he has the uncanny ability of combining the charming with the bizarre. Here are a few of my personal favorites:
