By several standards, including the Pulitzer Prize, Damon Winter is the best newspaper photographer working today.  Besides pulling out beautiful portraits on a newspaper budget (he rarely even uses assistants) his images from the 2008 Presidential campaign were some of the most nuanced and unexpected images to come from that topic.   He’s even had the time to produce a beautiful series of double exposures, capturing the overlapping moments and icons of New York City (above).

Online photo magazine Too Much Chocolate sits down with him for an interview.
