Philadelphia-based photographer Stefan Abrams‘ style feels fresh, unassuming and authentic. He captures a broad spectrum of subjects and we are let in on his daily observations and discoveries. A selection of his street photography is shown here, including pieces from a series he calls The Origin of the World, of which he says:
The Origin of the World is the first line drawn in the dirt. It is the scratch that begins the history of art. It is the marking, the re-marking, and with photography, the re-re-marking. It begins with the mark that expresses the self. It becomes the mark that expresses desire, fear, ecstasy, arrogance, even family. And it turns into the mark that is photography; the mark that captures other marks.—Stefan Abrams
And just as there is an origin, there is quite possibly an end; a concept that Abrams explores throughout the work.
