Jason Rice is a representative for a book wholesaler which brings him to New York City on a regular basis. Like any avid street photographer he uses the opportunity to walk the streets in search of images that reflect his personal story.
As the son of a professional photographer Jason was influenced not only by his own father but family friend, Aaron Siskind. It is no surprise that he chose to attend the influential Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) where he studied under Harry Callahan.
Early in his photography life Jason was inspired by Garry Winnogrand. So he set out do create work just like Garry’s. Over time, as Jason’s work evolved, he realized that he had to be true to his own vision and took his personal work totally different direction.
Jason’s street style is unique for which he makes no apologies. In addition he is a prolific writer with a talent to express his feelings both photos and words. Jason has something to say and I encourage you to read his article Between Seconds in the April 2022 issue of Street Photography Magazine.
In person Jason is articulate, funny and an engaging raconteur.
Give it a listen, read the article to see more of his work and see for yourself.
