Photographers are an important part of any stock photography agency and while this is an obvious truth it seems when looking from inside the industry that there have always been “two sides”.

Photographers on one side and the stock agencies on the other. The question is: Has this been healthy? Apparently not. When we see how stock photography is struggling today and suffering from a wave of “selling cheap” it is clear this is affecting the “two sides” sides of the entire industry. So is a solution for this?

© 2011 Luke Hayes

Luke Hayes is an independent architectural photographer. His work has been published in a range of national and international titles, including The Guardian, New York Times, Blueprint and Architectural Review, and Abitare.

Photographs of snow on an anonymous neighbourhood, or on a line of milk vans waiting at the depot, tap in to the same myth of big-city American culture as the films of Wim Wendrs- like his work, the images here share some of that alienated fascination of a European looking through a lens in to a very different yet strangely familiar, urban landscape. - Sarah Simpkin
