Intimate captures have an aura and magical essence of their own, quite different from hot-shot editorials, and J.R. Mankoff Photos provides proof of this claim.

Hailing from Michigan, this talented photographer loves capturing raw art in his portraits. He spends quality time collaborating on several projects. He has also covered shoots for renowned magazines like Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and many more. But aside from the glitzy glamor, he also chooses to capture still life and simple moments.

Residing between Los Angeles and Manhattan, Mankoff gets the best of raw captures. This series brings about a few random portraits that have a countryside essence and charm. Each subject looks relaxed, yet longing, as they pose for each snapshot.
