Texan photographer, Sara Macel worked for 2 years as an assistant to Magnum photographer, Bruce Davidson after completing a BFA in Photography & Imaging at New York University in 2003. Whilst studying she received the Tobias Award for the project, 'Kiss + Tell'. This is 'Car Door' from that series:
Her portfolio of photography from across the US is fantastic, with projects from burlesque to rodeo, Memphis to Florida, day and night. Her images are crisp and raw, they show a stark reality and are refreshingly honesty, yet her perspective always adds a bit of humour. I love this, 'Picture Wall, Graceland 2006' from the, 'Memphis to Nashville and back again' series:
