I am very happy and excited that I could add another wonderful photographer to my project.
I really love Scott's work. His current project Gay America is made with so much love and passion and is one of the best I've seen in the last year.
He is not only a great photographer but also a very nice guy.
Read Scott's answers to my questions here.
Make sure to visit also his website. You will find lots of other fantastic projects there.

Because here the evidences of the past are so strongly intertwined with the marks of the present and the questions about our future: sometimes it is possible to see all this revealed in front of one’s eye, and all at the same time.
Part of my identity as Israeli is to question everything, not to leave anything for granted: to show the tensions that constantly exist, to convey the truth behind the construction of the reality.
Religious, social aspects filter into everyday life and their meanings are exposed as the journey moves on. Jewish missionaries, lost souls and individuals living in the fringes of the society: all blends in to form this landscape of humanity.

Albert Handler, Anouk Rehorek and Christian Schlager are the founders of the Austrian network World Identity Lab.
It's an interesting project and worth the visit. So please check it out.
Their current project "identity sucks" is very captivating. Teenagers from around the world are talking about their live goals.
What is the world identity lab?
The world identity lab is a non-commercial experimental platform, created by moodley brand identity, that looks into different levels of what we call “identity” on a worldwide basis.
The main focus is identity as an overall theme, in its exuberant varieties. The wants and needs of people and the resulting patterns of behaviour within their specific social and cultural environment is the main area of interest. Micro- and macro identities, identity as a social role, identity as identification with a social group, identity as a summary of attributes that differentiate people from each other.
What does the world identity lab want?

On their website is a lot of good work to find. For everyone interested in Street Photography a fantastic resource.
This is what they say about in-Public:
in-Public was set up in 2000 to provide a home for Street Photographers.
Our aim is to promote Street Photography and to continue to explore its possibilities, we are a non commercial collective. All the photographers featured here have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday and to capture the moment. The pictures remind us that, if we let it, over-familiarity can make us blind to what’s really going on in the world around us.
Check it out and browse through all the portfolios on their site.

His project Gay America is extraordinary. Scott traveled all over America and made portraits of out and proud gay men happily living their lives in the state they call home. To every photo belongs a short story written by the man in the photo.
I was fascinated by the project and the wonderful photos when I saw them the first time.
This project has to be a book and I would be one of the first ones to buy it.
Visit Scott's website and make sure to see also his other projects.
