Brilliant new photography


It's not often that we here at Shortlist.com make grand statements (we usually prefer somewhat medium) but we're going to come right out and say that Adrian Samson is our new favourite photographer.

The Hungarian genius, who now lives in London and works freelance with Getty Images, has provided us with a variety of images to stare lovingly at.

The pics are deceptively glossy but succeed in subverting our expectations. Hang on, what's that giant plastic bumblebee doing by that lamppost? Wait, why does that elderly woman have an AC/DC tattoo on her neck? Originally aiming to be a fashion photographer, the unconventional Samson found his style to be "too quirky" so focused on advertising instead.
