James's photography is a direct reflection of his character... raw and real... pure awesomeness. He once showed me a photographer he admired and one day hoped to achieve the same level of artistry. I was of course impressed, but immediately told him, "stop chasing, you're already there." His portraits are his most personal work yet, painfully subtle and provocative. I can't figure out if he's creating the tones, or the tones creating him. His evolution in the medium is unstoppable... just glad we got him before everyone does.
