He is one of the most talked-about photographers today, primarily because of his uncanny ability to capture “the moment” in stylized fashion, despite the sometimes unpredictable setting. There are no test shots, no assistants with Broncolor setup, or last-minute choreography with the subject–it’s just you and what ever is available to you at that period in time.

all the more amazing. Part of street photographer Tommy Ton
(aka Jak & Jil
)’s look back on the events of 2011, this sequence features the heaven-like halos around Kanye West
as spotlights illuminate their ways on stage. And, if you look closely, that’s the Nike Air Yeezy 2
that Kanye’s wearing.
