he describes himself 

as a shy person, but his work speaks of courage and a strong perspective into the social scene of Baltimore, the city where he lives and works. In Joust’s images, the author disappears. Considering the way the subject — person or object — is portrayed, it’s as if there were no conversation with the photographer prior to or after shooting. Undisturbed, his subjects  look lost in their thoughts: sometimes they offer a light smile but they never pose. They always reveal an important part of their character. Joust becomes the camera, then he tells us a story through its images: it’s a story of social contrast, of nostalgia. A story with a blues soundtrack, and the faintest whiff of tobacco.

What do you do on a rainy day?

Watch silly movies and/or scan/develop film.

The best place you have been to so far?

San Francisco

The song that’s currently stuck in your head ?

The Olympic fanfare and theme music. I’ve been watching a lot of the Olympics lately. That’s a good thing because I usually have much less heroic and much more irritating music stuck in my head

  1. The generation just hate the studies because they woke up early in the morning preparing the test on the daily bases. They just fed up from the daily routine and wane take some rest, therefore the mostly children avoid the education and as wall as the bad criteria.
