Always interesting in Morad Bouchakour’s work is the tension between the looseness inherent of reportage photography and the control of studied, lit portraiture. Morad’s work pulls on both ends of that rope. His version of engaged street photography is both random and posed.

The city of New York poses for Morad as well. As he pounds the pavement, the city offers up all types. These are not pictures that could be made in a studio. In the studio, reality is composed. On the streets, reality is the composer. In Morad’s lens, the captured image could be going in either direction. -Text written by Kathy Ryan, Photo Editor of The New York Times Magazine.
