Photo Studio

Issue #58

Getting married, attending a party that costs US$25,000, military school, being pregnant, becoming a Chinese opera character or sitting under the bright lights of a famous Hollywood photographer; these are all reasons that people splurge and get their photographs taken professionally or at a photo studio. Colors 58 celebrates the hard labor of unknown studio photographers around the world, takes you inside the milieu of their studios, and exposes the subjects of their photos. Portraits, exotic histories, and clues to master the trade.
