When noted photographer Jim Krantz decided to explore his creativity in new ways, he could hardly have guessed where things would lead. Today, with Jim Krantz Projects, he brings his acclaimed, compelling images to collaborations across the world of design. For an artist whose photography has been famously appropriated into other forms, it represents an opportunity for him to create something new, yet wholly rooted in his vision.
A student of Ansel Adams in his youth, Jim grew up to capture iconic images of the American West, rich with a seductive masculinity, that have made him a favorite collaborator of leading international brands like Samsung, Chase Bank, Nokia, Red Bull and Gensler, along with notable print publications, including Wallpaper, Arena Homme+, V Magazine, Playboy and German GQ among others. He is sought after not only for his talent and creativity as an artist, but also for his unique ability to find new ways of looking at the things we see every day.
