photographer Dane Shitagi's project shows ballet dancers anywhere but on stage

photographer Dane Shitagi's project shows ballet dancers anywhere but on stage | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

For 12 years, photographer Dane Shitagi has been photographing ballerinas in unusual environments such as a waterfall in Hawaii, a Manhattan fire escape or a Toronto streetcar.

He has now amassed more than 1,000 images of strong and graceful ballet dancers for The Ballerina Project posing anywhere but onstage.

Unencumbered by roles to perform, make-up or costumes, the dancers pose with loose flowing hair and simple leotards or dresses, showcasing their effortless poise even as gritty city streets loom around them.

'Each photograph is a collaborative work of dance, fashion design and photography played out against the city's landscape,' Shitagi says.

He works with professional ballerinas, some retired and some currently at top ballet companies, and does about 40 photo shoots a year with dancers.

The Ballerina Project is one of the internet's most popular dance-related photography sites - the Instagram account currently has almost 240,000 subscribers, the Facebook page has almost 800,000 likes and the Tumblr account has all the latest images.

Magnum photographer Bruce Gilden opens up his archive of 'characters' | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

If Paul Giamatti has been dubbed our time's character actor, then Bruce Gilden must be our character photographer. Having grown up on the mean streets of Brooklyn in the 1960s, Gilden began his career snapping the larger-than-life 'characters' of his urban surroundings, from Coney Island's lobstered sunbathers to his local neighborhood tough guys.

Boris Mikhailov: Four Decades in Red, Blue, Sepia, and Green | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Boris Mikhailov’s haunting, candid images of Ukrainian streets are currently on view at Dominique Levy Gallery in New York. The pictures are overlaid with tones of red, sepia, blue and green, each color depicting a different era of life in the former Soviet Union over his over 30-year long career. The prints range from snapshot-sized to life-sized, reflective of both an individual and collective experience. Mikhailov, born in the Ukraine in 1938, has become a renowned documentarian of social, economic and ideological institutional changes in his country.

Australian photographer charged with “disorderly behavior causing offense” for street photography | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The last few years have seen many photographers in the United States run into police trouble for photographing the wrong building or place, but generally street photography of people has remained free of hassle. But in Australia, a photographer has just been convicted of "disorderly behavior causing offense" for legally photographing someone in public, simply because the person being photographed didn't like it.

10 Lessons Lee Friedlander Has Taught Me About Street Photography

10 Lessons Lee Friedlander Has Taught Me About Street Photography | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

In my opinion, Lee Friedlander is one of the most under-appreciated (or simply unknown) street photographers when it comes to the internet. Of course Friedlander is one of the pillars of photography and is known to every student who has gone to photography school. However when I started photography, I had no idea who he was or never even heard of him.

The Phenomenon of Street Style Photography

The Phenomenon of Street Style Photography | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Everyone wants their 15 minutes, and in the world of fashion, it’s always been hard to come by. Recent decades have yielded a certain phenomenon that has swept fashion onto a myriad of pixelated screens worldwide: “street style” photography. On the one hand, it is a natural means of capturing trends and unique styles, and with new fashion blogs popping up every day, also a cost-effective means of promotion. On the other side though, there seem ties to paparazzi culture: a “dress-to-be-noticed” performance in which both photographer and street model saturate the scene with contrived attention. GARAGE Magazinehas an in-depth piece on said phenomenon, called “Take My Picture.” The clip asks the driving questions on a profound and affecting topic – one that’s sure to inspire its own discussion on this very site.

David Luraschi: Back to the Streets

David Luraschi: Back to the Streets | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“There’s too much information in one’s expression,” says French-American photographer David Luraschi, whose ongoing series of alternative street-style portraits are surreptitious snapshots taken from behind. Joining a raft of instant-image-makers including Daniel Arnold and Dave Krugman, Luraschi, who has been described as the “Sartorialist of sadness,” distinguishes himself from his peers by providing a counterpoint to the self-consciously posed shots peppering fashion blogs every season.

ECAL Library's insight:

David Luraschi completed the master's programme in Art Direction at ECAL in 2013.

Exhibition of photographs lost for 60 years reveals a bygone London | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

On a spring morning in 1912, a man with a tripod and a heavy camera walked out of Liverpool Street station and into the heart of London's East End, capturing the children playing with hoops and skipping ropes, the busy shoppers, the pubs, the horse-drawn delivery carts competing with lorries, the tailors promising individual garments at wholesale prices in an area famous for centuries for textile workers, a now vanished world. He then went home to his new photographic studio at Brightlingsea in Essex, and vanished from history.

A Street Photographer of 19th Century London

A Street Photographer of 19th Century London | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The street photographer I share with you this week was a man born in Great Britain an entire century before Winogrand and Friedlander. His name was John Thomson (1837-1921) and it is known that he traveled the Far East taking photographs during much of the period between 1860-1879. When he returned to London, he began taking documentary photographs of everyday people on the streets of London. Photography during that time was a calculated and time intensive process with bulky cameras and glass plate negatives.
