Akili's Mood Board - Photographers that Inspire me

My cover photo is a portrait I shot of my son and his family. I love working in b&w. It has such power and conveys mood in a way that color doesm't. The following photographers are but a few that have inspired me over the years. Though styles are different, what they share in common is their use of composition, lighting and ability to plumb the depths of their subjects to convey the essence of their personalities and/or environment.

Albert Watson

Annie Leibovitz

Gordon Parks

Irving Penn

W. Eugene Smith
