I came across this collection of ‘tooth signs’ of dental clinics when the site owner wrote me to request for permission to post one of my ‘tooth sign’ photos. His collection is really diverse, showcasing tooth signs from all around the world. I like how universal dental clinics signs are, no matter where you go.

Jason Nocito photographs a love-letter for his wife

Pepi Ginsberg of Companion Reader Find

By Pepi Ginsberg of Companion in New Photography on Wednesday 16 January 2013

I found out about Jason Nocito a couple of months ago through a photographer friend and I’ve been in love with his work ever since. When I looked him up, I hadn’t realized he had been responsible for some music photography that I had already been a fan of – I believe he shoots a lot for Fader. His personal projects, however, are what really get me. His most recent book, I Heart Transylvania, is a document of a long-distance relationship with his now wife, who at the time, lived in Vancouver. The whole book is a love-letter, and he captures such an incredible essence of both his subject, and his spaces, through light and movement. I’m such a fan.
