Amidst the pack of internationally renowned photographers, there has arisen an Alpha Female. American born Justice Howard has come in great strides through her career to the heights of her predecessors such as Herb Ritts, Robert Mapplethorpe and Helmut Newton sinking her eye teeth in and making her own distinct mark in the industry as she was voted “Queen of the Lens” Best Photographer in Los Angeles in 2016. Internationally acclaimed for her work in over 55 countries with hundreds of print features, dozens of anthologies, many successful art gallery exhibitions as well as a plethora of one woman museum shows, works in hardcover coffee table books and magazines that stretch from French Vogue to Easyriders, she has proven herself as a force to be reckoned with. All this and she shows no signs of slowing.
Best known for her erotic imagery, she has cast her distinct light on legends from Mamie Van Doren, Sybil Danning and Margaret Cho, with a great number of Playboy Playmates and Penthouse Pets all living in print within the vast collections of Justice’s remarkable manifested visions. Her images display empowerment of the women she films, showcasing their strengths and highlighting their prowess. You get the feeling that the women in her work are quite capable of escaping from the frames and moving forth to conquer the world by storm.
Her hunts have also covered a great pride of rockers from surf guitar legend Dick Dale, Eric Burdon, Dave Navarro and Marilyn Manson. She is credited for capturing the last living photographs of outlaw country’s irreplaceable Waylon Jennings.
Her unique style is vibrant and crisp, supernatural and intense. Dynamic frame after dynamic frame, every shot stands illuminated and shines above and beyond other known works. Coupled with a no-nonsense hands on shooting style, there’s really no stopping her as she moves forward like a loaded train onto greater heights and even more impressive collections. The future holds much for this gifted ‘huntress of the lens’ and somewhere, howling in the distance, she is letting the world know that she stands ready.
