Justin Cook is a photographer because he believes that relationships foster a deliberate life. Relationships are the core of intimate storytelling. He documents issues that shape the American experience, and works with editorial and commercial clients. If he doesn't have a near impossible task to tackle, he's bound to lose his mind. Otherwise, you can find him reading about astrophysics, writing in the first person, or instagramming his cats at #sprickers. FULL CVRAVE REVIEWS!
