Joseph McDougalll Photography presents the viewer with uncompromising, stark images of the city in contemporary times.

McDougall's verite style demands of its viewer a close examination of that essential American oxymoron: in a city where multi-million dollar homes sit next to homeless encampments, how does one reconcile? What does it mean to be an American, educated in the belief that every man is born equal, when it's so plain that this credo does not apply? McDougall's images are seductive in their beauty but often times disturbing in their content.
