Justin's influences range across creative disciplines; among them, photographers Duane Michals, Bettina Rheims, Richard Misrach, and Peter Goin; Filmmaker Godfrey Reggio, and Painters Edward Hopper and Gary Ruddell.
Current projects include a series exploring memory, desire, and nostalgia (The Fading Affect Bias); a landscape series involving cold-war legacy sites and remediated facilities; and more recently, an emerging series documenting political and social protests between Washington DC and New York. Justin is also a contributing photographer for Daily Racing Form, who regularly feature his horse racing reportage.
