Chris Jordan- Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait

Breno Rotatori - Bloco de Notas
I think this is a really successful use of lighting and movement which causes the viewer to think about what is happening in this photograph.

Roger Ballen - Mimicry, 2005, from Boarding House

Warwick Thornton - Untitled (Lake) 2011 from Stranded
Atmosphere has been very effectively created in this series particularly with the use of lighting. 

David LaChapelle - Lady Gaga 2009
La Chapelle's body of work is made up of a lot of celebrity portraits and fashion work, however it seems to have a more artistic flair to it as well.

Brian Walker - Step Four, 2007
At first glance, Brian Walker's photography has the appearance of fashion photography but when you begin to look at his images it is clear that there is much more to them. 
He started out using illustration as a medium, but switched to photography to create a more believable image.
