Julian Hibbard New York photographers

It has been a busy few months for Julian Hibbard.

In May he shot on location for Popular Mechanics magazine. Travelling to Greensburg, Kansas, a small town 95% destroyed three weeks earlier by a category 5 tornado, Julian produced the cover and lead story images
for the magazine's 'Survive Anything' edition.

A special challenge given the scale and type of destruction, Julian encountered the town's few remaining inhabitants - strong, determined, yet humbled by their experience.

His cover image set-ups evoke a surreal quality, depicting a place where there was once life, and where it appears time has since stood still.
