I just saw over at WPPI Online that they are featuring the work of Roberto Flack - AMAZING imagery here. Mr. Flack grew up in Ecuador, got his degree in Finance in Pennsylvania, eventually found his way to New York and set up shop as a web designer.
That lasted till 2005, the year he lost his job. By hanging out with the right people and inspired by a few more, he gradually developed a style that is truly beautiful and unusual. Check out Roberto's whole story right here - a total inspiration.
