"My education at Purchase College enabled me to focus on the most important aspects of photographyŚlight and form. Photographers such as Walker Evans, Sudek, and Man Ray left behind an important body of work that will forever influence my imagery."
In an effort to grow his business, Caste recently enlisted the help of New York-based photo rep agency Glasshouse Images (www.glasshouseimages.com), which initiated a vigorous direct mailing campaign targeting prospective clients.
His flashy new website is also generating industry buzz. Caste is currently working on a black & white fine art project in New York City.
"I just go out at night and shoot what I see," he says.
Now that's a Caste system that really makes sense.
