Armed with cameras (they both lean toward Leicas), Koteliansky and Kerr double-team their subjects. Sometimes one of the photographers will be making small talk while the other shoots; other times they blast away simultaneously. The goal, for images that have appeared in The New Yorker, Variety, and M, Le Monde's magazine supplement, is to capture something real. So whenever possible, they eschew postproduction work in favor of finding effects within the camera. "Things are more meaningful when they are done in camera," Koteliansky says. "Do special effects in post, and you get stuck with something uptight."
