Pick of the Day: Pachi Tamer on Instagram

Tamer, an Argentinian who works at an ad agency in Austin, Texas, wanders around with his iPhone, shooting pictures of homeless people and their pets. Actually, to call them “pictures” fails to do justice to the power of his work. These are portraits, some very powerful and with the dignity and grace of Renaissance religious paintings. Tamer says he has always been interested in the poor and downtrodden; as a child, he recalls (fondly) working with impoverished families via a school program. The guy ought to win a Pulitzer Prize for his work—some of it is that good.
