American photographer Jason Langer (b. 1967) is best known for his psychological and noirish visions of contemporary urban life. Secret City, his first monograph published by Nazraeli Press, depicts night and dusk scenes of various cities with “carefully crafted compositions reminiscent of the symbolist photographers, and swathes of meticulously printed deep black tones characteristic of the gelatin silver process. . . as much Hopper and Raymond Chandler as Steichen” (Bomb Magazine).
