If you have been our reader for some time now, you should remember that we have covered this great photographer before. Happy to say, he has remained to be that interesting fellow we have fallen in love with and continues to impress us with his latest collection of works represented by opiom gallery, France.

Living and working in New York City, this young 1991 born photographer was initially studying journalism, until he found a Pentax ME Super in his grandmother’s attic. Fusing his character with their surroundings, he often defies gravity and splits the persona into two in his images. He has expanded his context further with his recent works, where “the latent tension inherent to the images Zank creates, reflect perfectly the inner emotional struggles of the artist”.

“This set of photographs represents my current and past emotions”, says Zank. “Being in control, being powerless, stuck, being free again, etc. Think of it like a power struggle.”
