Comment faire poser le sujet ? | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter

Comment faire poser le sujet ? | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"La photo est une trace." De mon auguste bouche, l'affirmation pourrait passer pour un truisme barbant. Le rappel d'une telle évidence est pourtant un fondamental dans la photographie. Dans le sujet que je vous propose, cette trace est celle de la rencontre. Cette dernière exprime une relation entre le photographe et son sujet. Je vous suggère donc de bien réfléchir à la pose à faire prendre que vous indiquerez à vos sympathiques sujets. Un manque d'exigence à la prise de vue risquerait de produire un portrait manquant de force affective.

Opening a blind eye to femicide | Photojournalist: Jorge Dan Lopez

Opening a blind eye to femicide | Photojournalist: Jorge Dan Lopez | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Violence and death are always present and tangible in Guatemala. The population seems to accept it as normal, even more so when women are the victims. In many cases, society simply ignores it, sits in silence or turns a blind eye.

 

Many men treat women as if they have no rights, thinking it unusual that someone should be punished or fined for beating, raping or killing them.

In Guatemala, violence against women generally starts behind the walls of their own homes. The aggressors in most cases are the men closest to them: fathers, brothers, cousins and partners.

 

There are now laws to protect women but there is little education, information or willingness to report crimes. The male perpetrators themselves often don’t seem to understand why they are being arrested. Prosecutors told me that they often hear from men accused of such crimes: “Why am I being arrested? I only hit my wife.” - Jorge Dan Lopez 



Photo report's insight:

"I was born in Guerrero State, in southern Mexico, a depressed region with large indigenous population. I began to take photos when I moved to Mexico City in the year 2000. After several courses in the capital I traveled to Italy in 2002 to live and photograph for diverse media until 2006. That year, one of great political and social change in Mexico, I returned to work for a financial newspaper and began with Reuters in 2008. I've been in Guatemala for Reuters since June of 2011." - Jorge Dan Lopez

“Gaia,The Birth Of An End” | Fine art photographer: Kirsty Mitchell

“Gaia,The Birth Of An End” | Fine art photographer: Kirsty Mitchell | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Tonight it’s dark in the studio, and I’m curled up in my chair staring at this blank page, about to write the first Wonderland diary entry in 9 long months.. Outside its raining, and this morning brought the first frost I have noticed since last winter. Earlier, as I walked to work I stopped and watched a flutter of yellow leaves circle my boots, reminding me fondly of the cloak I made for ‘The Journey Home’ almost one year ago to the day. These fragments of seasons have become like old friends I find myself silently greeting, one by one as they return unannounced, blown by the autumn wind.


The landscape is changing in colour and I’m hoping for snow, as there is still one last picture I need to create before I can let the story complete. But for now, after months of work I am finally ready to let this last chapter unfold, of what has since become the last 4.5 years of my life.  I still can’t imagine the day I write the words ‘The End’ but it is slowly becoming a palpable reality, which leaves a bitter sweet emotion in my gut. The pictures I have created over the last few months have at times pushed me to my limit, and I know I have learnt so much about myself in the process.


I have had days when I have never felt to so happy to be alive, standing in the woods with my camera, so grateful for every precious moment ….. and others where my own crushing lack of self confidence has made me sick with worry, as to whether or not I have created something good enough. It is always the same with me …. all or nothing, the highest highs and lowest lows, but throughout it all I can say I have tried my hardest. I faced challenges I was genuinely scared of, but forced myself through as they were the only way to produce the ending I always dreamt of. So I just wanted to say how thankful I am to the people who have been on this journey with me and taken Wonderland into their hearts, both the followers of the project and the irreplaceable tiny team I work so closely with."- Kirsty Mitchell

Castro's People | Photojournalist: Susi Eggenberger (ZUMA PRESS) | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Ninety miles from America and roughly the size of Pennsylvania the totalitarian communist state of Cuba is home to more than eleven million people.  A multiracial society with a population of mainly Spanish origins and Catholic faith, Cuba boasts one of the best health care systems in the world with the average life expectancy comparable to the UK while it's average monthly salary is only $20.00.  Prolonged austerity and the state controlled economy's insufficiency in providing adequate services and goods have forced an estimated 40% of Cubans to turn to the black market in order to obtain necessary clothing, food and household items.  Historically, Cuban law subordinates it's people from freedom of movement, speech, assembly and the press.  However, efforts by the government for economic and social reform have recently loosened some of the constraints on travel, real estate and business creating a mixture of excitement and trepidation in the Cuban people." - Susi Eggenberger

10 trucs pour réaliser un bon portrait | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter

10 trucs pour réaliser un bon portrait | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Il n’est jamais évident pour une personne d’être photographié. A vous de les mettre en confiance. Ayez une voix forte et engageante. Avant de mitrailler comme un forcené de la gâchette, prenant le temps d’observer votre sujet et son environnement. Comme l’a si bien écrit Tom Ang « Trop d’indifférence à la prise de vue risque de produire un portrait manquant de force affective. »4 Dans le cas d’un portrait préparé, demandez à votre sujet de simuler des émotions que vous voulez traduire dans le portrait. Par exemple, si vous souhaitez donner l’impression que le modèle est dominateur, demandez-lui de s’imaginer en caporal donnant des ordres.

Big Sister | Photographer: Hana Jakrlova | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Big Sister is an internet sex club- a unique concept that conbines prostitution with elements of social media. Clients have sex for free after they sign a contract agreeing to be filmed. All rooms in the Big Sister house, located in the center of Prague, are equipped with web cams and the ‘action’ streams live via the Internet.

 

The cameras are operated from a separate studio and the content is transmitted to the Big Sister web site in real time. Tens of thousands of people worldwide enjoy the live virtual reality show for a for a fee paid by credit card on the Big Sister Internet portal.

Analyse d’une photo : le rêveur de Kathputli Colony | Serge Bouvet, photographe | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
Le tabou pointant la frontière entre l’aspect artistique et l’aspect documentaire de la photographie est le cadet de mes soucis. Je n’ai pas tendance à minimiser l’aspect artistique de mes photos. En ce qui me concerne, le dispositif esthétique prévaut autant que le sujet traité, surtout dans le cadre d’un portrait. Petit retour sur un portrait pris à Kathputli Colony.

Risking life for school | Photojournalist: Beawiharta

Risking life for school | Photojournalist: Beawiharta | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

I went to Jakarta’s business district to find photos of middle-class workers returning to their homes. When I had finished, I realized that I had something different to shoot for the next day. I searched Google maps to find the location of the collapsed bridge but I couldn’t find the exact location. There was a blank map with only the name of the village, Sanghiang Tanjung. Surprisingly, it said the village was just 130 kms (80 miles) away from our Jakarta office – a travel time of about two hours. My estimation was it would take 4 hours.

 

3am Thursday morning, my friend and driver Soewarno and I headed to the village. We reached by 6am. But the difficulty was this village was just a blank area on the map. Also, we had to find the right direction that the students would take, so that I could take a pictures from the front, not from the back. We found many roads in the village but no one knew where the bridge was. With the help of my friends, we were able to get the name of the head of the village, Epi Sopian, who accompanied us to the location. Edi said the bridge collapsed during Saturday’s big flood when wood and bamboo hit the suspension bridge’s pillar.

 

I arrived at the location as the students were crossing. They were already in the middle of the bridge. Oh no, these could not be the children who wanted to go to school, I thought! It was more like an acrobatic show the collapsed bridge as an apparatus and without any safety device at all. They walked slowly, sometimes screaming as their shoes slipped. Suddenly the rain came. A last group of students, Sofiah and her friend, were on the bridge. Happily, all the students crossed safely. I took pictures for no more than five minutes. (...)

Only Unity - | Photographer: Matt Lutton

Only Unity -  | Photographer: Matt Lutton | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Only Unity”: Serbia In The Aftermath of Yugoslavia has emerged from five years of living and working in the Balkans; it is my personal response to the confounding atmosphere of the region. My project presents a psychological portrait of Serbs from across the Balkans as they confront a radically changed landscape within physically contracting borders. Serbia is emerging from the hangover of the 1990s, where atrocities were carried out in their name just across newborn borders, and constructive reflection about the consequences of those years is over due.

 

I am photographing details of society that both reflect and undermine the popular Serbian creation myths. Many issues are rooted in the complicated phrase “Only Unity Saves the Serbs” which was popular in the narrative of mass political manipulation during the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the wars that took place in its vacuum. Serbia is still recovering from the post- traumatic stress of those years, leading to a national confusion about their identity and a productive path forward.

I have focused on diverse subjects within the Serbian landscape which are far removed from any reality espoused by politicians. Young men and women are being raised in a divided, uncertain atmosphere and I hope to capture that essence so that we can further consider the implications of a Balkan region that is led by this generation. It is impossible to analyze or understand any event in this region without first considering its historical roots. I am interested in exploring and understanding the parts of today’s Balkan society that the next generation will read about in their history textbooks. What is happening now in the streets and in political negotiations will have profound impact on regional stability in the future.

 

There are many elements that contribute to a hostile and sometimes desperate atmosphere in Serbia today. But there too are moments that show healing and a glimpse at a different future than many have seen for themselves in the last decade. The growing pains of this developing democracy must continue to be carefully documented and explored, as the battles of the 1990s have yet to be finally played out. I’ve experienced alarming apathy and lack of compassion from many youth across the Balkans, and I hope to confront them directly with a different picture of the countries and history they will inherit. I hope my pictures will help bridge local borders, real and imagined. - Matt Lutton

Comment réaliser de bons portraits d’entreprise | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter

Comment réaliser de bons portraits d’entreprise | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Le portrait dans les locaux d’une entreprise peut être une expérience difficile pour le photographe amateur qui aura la lourde tache de  faire honneur à l’image de son sujet qui rayonnera dans l’arborescence d’un trombinoscope ou dans les pages d’une brochure ou mieux un article de magazine ou de journal. En ce qui me concerne, préalablement à la prise de vue, j’ai toujours le gyrophare en action dans le ciboulot pour me poser les questions habituelles sur la géographie des lieux mais surtout sur la lumière...

60 millions d’enfants au travail en Inde | photographe reporter : Serge Bouvet

60 millions d’enfants au travail en Inde | photographe reporter : Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
Photo report's insight:

(...)

 

" La petite fille marchait penchée en avant, la tête baissée, comme une vieille; le poids du bidon tendait et raidissait ses bras maigres; de temps en temps elle était forcée de s’arrêter, et chaque fois qu’elle s’arrêtait elle regardait son bidon comme un prisonnier regarderait son boulet. Cela se passait à Jaipur, en Inde, en mars 2012, loin de tout regard humain compatissant; c’était une enfant de 6 ans.

 

Hélas, l’Inde détient toujours ce triste record du monde : du plus grand nombre d’enfants travailleurs.  Les ONG estiment en effet que l’Inde compte près de 60 millions d’enfants au travail. Ils sont collecteurs de bouteilles, de plastique, chiffonnier dans les bidonvilles,   vendeurs de journaux, ramasseurs de poubelles, cireurs de chaussures,  serveurs dans les dabahs, employés de maison comme cette fille que j’ai photographié avec son bidon d’eau…" - Serge Bouvet
