10 Up-And-Coming Contemporary Photographers From the US
River Jordan, a Los Angeles-based photographer, grew up in a home surrounded by art. His parents were avid photographers, and Jordan followed suit – not out of force, but because he was drawn to the idea of connecting with people through the lens and sharing their stories. Inspired by a three-year trip on a boat at the age of 12, he shoots everything from athletes to thrill-seekers, capturing that vibrant energy that resides within.
‘The sailing trip in itself was life-changing and really shaped how I wanted to experience the world. After that trip, I knew I wanted my life to be an adventure.’
