Chris’ wife Joelle directed me to the Web site of an amazing young photographer named Alex Stoddard. Stoddard is only 19 years old, and has some incredible photographs for a guy of any age, let alone someone so young.
But it gets better. He writes on his Facebook page that he “discovered photography at the beginning of 2010.” So he’s only been doing it for three years.
I wrote Alex and asked him if he wouldn’t mind me publishing a few of his photos, and he graciously accepted. Here are a few of my favorites, but you can see many more on his Web site, and on his Facebook and Flickr pages.
Native Americans used to believe that a photograph could steal your soul. Well, a few of these did.
