Emerging Photographer: Sanghyuk Yoon

Emerging Photographer: Sanghyuk Yoon | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Sanghyuk Yoon, a South Korean photographer who is working on an M.F.A. at the School of Visual Arts, has spent much of the past year photographing plants and outdoor scenes around Manhattan, the outer boroughs, and New Jersey. Yoon told me that when he first saw Stuyvesant Town, in Manhattan, he was “struck by the sense of oasis within the chaos of the city.

Nenad Saljic Photography: A Portrait of
the Matterhorn

Nenad Saljic Photography: A Portrait of <br/>the Matterhorn | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The Matterhorn was the last great Alpine peak to be climbed and its first ascent in 1865 marked the end of the golden age of alpinism. Seven men reached the summit but four died on the way back. The triumph and tragedy of this feat is the epitome of man's desire to explore, to go beyond the limit. A reminder of how great and how small we are at the same time.

Lessons Learned From Working Years as a Storm-Chasing Photographer | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Over the past 12 years, I have spent countless hours finding myself in places that many would deem “the middle of nowhere.” I’m not there in awe of the bland landscape, yet instead I am staring up into the blue sky in hopes that the tiny little air molecules above me will develop into beastly, photogenic thunderstorms.
