Just as one sometimes comes across a special artist the same applies with photography. I recently saw the above photo by Alan Horsager and was inspired to investigate further.
Alan Horsager is an international street photographer and vision neuroscientist living in Los Angeles, California. Alan began shooting regularly in the mid 1990’s and has shot across a broad range of styles including fashion, editorial, and stock photography. His more recent work is both artistic and personal, and combines street and travel.
"His work as a neuroscientist at the University of Southern California focuses on the study of visual sensation and perception, including the development of sight-restoring therapies using light-sensitive proteins taken from algae." That sounds like another promising avenue being pursued to help people like myself with neurologically based sight problems.
Having looked at a number of Alan's photos I think this is my favourite -
Alan has a blog as well as his website.
(I know there are an awful lot of pictures out there on the Internet whose origins are not obvious and, like most people, I tend to add those to my own photos to illustrate my posts. But I don’t know why people go pinching so many pictures off the Internet and failing to acknowledge them when their ownership is clear. When I asked Alan Horsager for permission to showcase his photos he gave the usual response - ‘of course’. Thanks, Alan.)
