Such is “Alterego” by New York-based photographer Ben Zank, whose subjects rarely reveal their faces, and when they do, they don’t make eye contact.“I used to shoot people’s faces often,” says Zank, “and I would say that when you shoot somebody’s face, you’re shooting their likeness, their personality, and that’s not...

March 2016 issue Tech

Canon imagePrograf Pro-1000The imagePrograf Pro-1000 is the first in Canon’s imagePrograf Pro Series of fine-art inkjet printers.
