Recortadores are acrobatic tricks performed with a bull in the arena in Spain as an alternative to bullfights.
In addition to producing award-winning photography for a global roster of clients, including Nokia, Wells Fargo, The U.S. Army and more, Krantz has devoted much of his career to capturing the American west, a sliver of the United States that, for so many, encapsulate its history and spirit at its purest. The lauded commercial artist, whom Communication Arts profiled in a recent cover story, is also a fine artist. He’s represented in New York’s prestigious Danziger Projects Gallery, along with many of the world’s most prominent photographers, including Annie Leibovitz, Vik Muniz and Chuck Close. He’s been honored by the likes of Communication Arts, The American Photography Awards, The Lucie Awards, and The Art Director’s Club. And in 2010, the IPA named Krantz its 2010 Advertising Photographer of the Year.
