From the Island | Jiří Makovec

From the Island | Jiří Makovec | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Using a Hasselblad and lots of film, Jiri has managed to capture the city in a truly unique and surprising way.

 

Jiri Makovec lives and works in New York. His work has been exhibited at the International Center of Photography, Phillips de Pury & Company Auctions’ Change of Art and All Grown Up, the ChobiMela International Festival of Photography in Bangladesh, and the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts in Japan. Of this work, Tales From The island, he writes, ‘Within the city’s rigid grid, moments of mystery and terror unveil, and are captured as a series of encounters and events. Whether the viewer is facing truth or fiction, this body of work shows the photographers’ relationship to the city, that is also known as “the arena for the terminal stage of Western civilization”‘ (R. Koolhaas).

News Stands | Photographer: Trevor Traynor

News Stands | Photographer: Trevor Traynor | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

“Throughout my travels and transit time to and from shoots I started using the iPhone camera to scout locations and collect inspirational content for potential projects. I shot my first newsstand near Broadway and Morris Stretts in New York City and immediately found myself stopping to take portraits at every stand I passed. I’m drawn to the vibrant organized colors and compact product placement that provides an instant time stamp via magazine covers and headlines. The New York City newsstand is a staple in the Big Apple and its perfect square structure is an immediate attraction to the composition fanatic in me. The iPhone has a great dynamic range and its unobtrusive ability lets me shoot with a lot more ease.

 

Paired with editing apps such as Snapseed & PicFx, the end-product emulates the qualities of my favored Hasselblad. I revisited a handful of newsstands with different cameras, and although each camera delivers its own advantage, the iPhone is my current first choice. This project is ongoing and recently I was able to expand the collection to kiosks in Barcelona and Paris.” –Courtesy of Trevor Traynor
