Living Inside An American Suburb

Helmut Lies Down On The Job

Several issues back we featured a 6 page spread by LA-based photographer Doug Rickards or DR as he prefers to be known after we were blown away by his incredible portraits. Doug's unique style can be found here at but it seems he is also something of a photographic historian/academic too. He has created a second site called AmericanSuburb X which is a substantial collection of essays, interviews and musing on all things photographic and interesting. The gamut of great and obscure photographers is here from Newton (above) to Avedon (below) and everyone in between - DR does a great job of curating some incisive and encompassing discussions as well as publishing the work. Highly recommended.
