Philip-Lorca diCorcia is considered a pioneer in staged photography…after all, diCorcia has been in the photography game for over 40 years! Shooting in both analog and digital, diCorcia carefully crafts narratives in his work drawing on aesthetics of power and artificiality.

“I thought of the people as puppets who were unstrung, mercilessly disempowered—not preyed upon, but living on the edge and not by choice…So it was interesting to set up scenarios that often didn’t portray the real circumstances.”
