Brooklyn-based photographer and The Fader photo editor, Geordie Wood, has been a favorite and an inspiration of mine for a while. This week, Wood was deservedly named one of the Photo District News 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch.
Wood's most recent personal project, Nice Twice (India), may be his best work yet, capturing the sunwashed reality of India without the self-righteous commentary — "Hey, look at this plight! or "Wow, these people are just like us!"— that accompanies the work of too many American photographers abroad. Refreshing and honest but not without skill and calculation, I look forward to big, relevant and worthwhile things from Wood in the very near future.—Angelo
