  • Dear Jacob,

    I am living in Asia for more than 20 years and I wonder how you have been able to take intimate photos of Asians in the short time that you had available.

    Your photos are surely having a strong and loud voice

  • I lived in Asian for more than half of my life. I’m sure that Jacob didn’t just meet these people on the street and asked them by himself to take intimate photos of them. I guess a lot of the shootings were arranged by people who helped Jacob and he didn’t give them credit and so much of what he said was just bullshit.

  • Dear puppylover,

    I feel sorry for you. You sound so sad, jealoux and upset.

    Good luck!

  • Well…..I just wonder why Jacob did not answer to the question, I am sure that I am not the only one having this question in mind….

  • Agreed with Luciano. Jacob traveled on behalf of Leica and now we have to be like stupids? He has to answer questions to give more details about the trip and camera. If not it will be a boring time.

  • I echo Luciano. It seems it to be very unrealistic to believe that the oldest nation on earth let you go to their bedrooms and pose for you so intimately.
    Artistically, however, I love your pictures. They remind me Moriyama and Tomatsu. Great work. With such portfolio you do not need any of the things you have said as truth. What is wrong if you simply say that they were models, and were paid? Does it hurt Monochrom’s performance?

  • One of the problems with having such a distinctive style as Jacob is that it becomes somewhat monotonous and hard to distinguish one image or location from the other. His ethics and desire to be close to his subjects is abmirable but do we always need crotch shots of various women and men to prove it?

  • My brother suggested I would possibly like this website. He used to be totally right. This post truly made my day. You cann’t believe simply how a lot time I had spent for this info! Thanks!
