Los Angeles-based photographer Todd Mazer’s prowess rests in his innate ability to capture moments in an artist’s creative expression, connecting the gap between cause and effect. His shots can be seen as an interpretation of the relationship between the artist and his environment.

Mazer’s creativity spawned as a youth. In class, he would doodle in Post-it notepads, turning them into flip-books. As an admirer of Texan artist Ernesto Yerena’s DIY aesthetic, Mazer felt inspired to pick up a camera to document the swathes of street art and graffiti that surrounded his neighborhood. His journey in documentation has led him to work with icons like Lee Quinones, Jaybo Monk and Shepard Fairey, many of whom also play the role of subject in his photography.

Often shooting graffiti work within an arm’s reach of corrective law, Mazer’s documentation is candid and raw. Through his amassed experiences that include countless sessions shooting in illicit situations, Mazer has created a crafty portfolio, some of which can be seen above. Enjoy our latest THROUGH THE LENS and follow Todd Mazer on Instagram for more of his work.
