Joseph Rodriguez is a photographer from Brooklyn, New York. I was first introduced to his work in high school, and since then he has been one of my favorites. However finding free images of his work on the web is very difficult. Visiting his website is where you can see his all of his work, which I highly recommend. Rodriguez has done documentary work in Spanish Harlem, Romania, Zambia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and also documented the collapse of the World Trade Center. He has a gift for getting the most emotion out of his subjects he documents, and his work consists of mainly street photography, or photographing in urban environments. His book on Spanish Harlem is something I feel everyone should have on their book shelves or at least have read and looked through, it doesn't disappoint to say the least.
