From Aline Smithson’s article at Lenscratch:
Jason Langer is best known for his psychological and noirish visions of contemporary urban life, oftentimes using Buddhist terminology to explain his photographs. Langer’s work has been featured in numerous international photographic exhibitions and museum collections for over 20 years. Langer has published three monographs: Secret City (Nazraeli), Possession (Nazraeli) and Jason Langer: Twenty Years (Radius) which depict urban life with “carefully crafted compositions reminiscent of the symbolist photographers, and swathes of meticulously printed deep black tones . . . as much Hopper and Raymond Chandler as Steichen” (Bomb Magazine).
