Street photography | Photographer: Siegfried Günther

Street photography | Photographer: Siegfried Günther | BLACK AND WHITE | Scoop.it

A dynamic Gallery in London that exhibits the work of Siegfried Günther on large High Definition screens.

 

Siegfried Günther is a German-born photographer who lives in France.

There is something about the making of photographs in public places that resonates with Siegfried Günther more than any other kind of photography.

Siegfried Günther is fascinated by the things that I ‘choose’ to photograph when he leave the house with his leica camera but without a ‘story’ or ‘brief’ to fulfill.

 

"I started photography very young inspired by my father using a Rolleiflex. I started with 24x36 reflex cameras and moved definitily to Rangfinder with the Leica M cameras in 1983 with an M6. Photograpy is part of my life but not my job. It gives my fun. Photography allows my to fix the time or in real life that means "tempus fugit". I was born in 1954, Leica M3 and Kodak Tri-X go live at the same time. Is this prediction?"- Siegfried Günther

Muay Thai Bangkok | Photographer : Mark Carey

Muay Thai Bangkok | Photographer : Mark Carey | BLACK AND WHITE | Scoop.it

Here's a gallery of monochrome photographs of Muay Thai training made in Bangkok by the talented Mark Carey. These appealed to me as they were photographed away from the glitzy lights of the top Muay Thai arenas in Bangkok, but show the rather edgy side of the sport...as I tried to do in my recent photo essay of the Muay Thai ring in Loi Kroh Road in Chiang Mai. 

Mark Carey is a London-based documentary photographer, who tells us he never had an interest in photographing posed or set-up shots, whether for his wedding photography or during his travels. I think he somewhat bent his rule with some of the frames of the non Thai fighter in the Muay Thai series, but these are the exception and are well worth adding to the gallery...the fellow looks absolutely fierce.

Muay Thai is a combat fight practiced in Thailand, and referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight "points of contact".
