Peter Yang, a bloke who shoots primarily for Rolling Stone, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine, has become one of my favourite portrait photographers of late. He’s so good at just nailing a particular mood or bringing out an eccentricity in a subject. Check out his music stuff here. I especially dig this Lee Scratch Perry one:
