Just Write | Photojpournalist: Steve McCurry

Just Write | Photojpournalist: Steve McCurry | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Steve McCurry has covered many areas of international and civil conflict, including Beirut, Cambodia, the Philippines, the Gulf War, the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and Tibet. He focuses on the human consequences of war, not only showing what war impresses on the landscape, but rather, on the human face.

 

McCurry's work has been featured in every major magazine in the world and frequently appears in National Geographic, with recent articles on Tibet, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and the temples of Angkor Wat, Cambodia.

 

A high point in McCurry's career was the rediscovery of the previously unidentified Afghan refugee girl that many have described as the most recognizable photograph in the world today.

McCurry has published books including The Imperial Way (1985), Monsoon(1988), Portraits (1999), South Southeast (2000), Sanctuary (2002), The Path to Buddha: A Tibetan Pilgrimage (2003), Steve McCurry (2005), and Looking East(2006).

Elementarz | Photographer: KAROLINA KARLIC

Elementarz | Photographer: KAROLINA KARLIC | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Karolina Karlic is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist. Her work is tied to the idea of the West: road trips, car culture, industry, economic ups and downs, and the experience of the migrant. Her series “Elementarz” (Polish for “Primer”) shuttles between the familiar American photographic road trip and her reexamination of parts of Poland where her family comes from and to which her father, after years working as an emigre engineer in the Detroit auto industry, was dispatched to investigate new sites for the next generation car plants. The work weaves together family, surrogate relatives, religion, nostalgia, Motown music, manufactured ideologies and other themes.

Karlic is a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship.  She continues to explore representations of American culture, industry, labor, and the immigrant experience in a current work-in-progress that focuses on an American oil boom town. – Artist statement courtesy of Karolina Karlic

Middle Class Utopia | Photographer: Klaus Pichler

Middle Class Utopia | Photographer: Klaus Pichler | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

This series, Middle Class Utopia, focuses in Austrian allotment gardens in and around Vienna, called ‘Schrebergärten’. These tiny gardens were invented in the late 19th century, mainly to provide space for the working class people to grow their own vegetables and fruits.

Over the time, the use of these gardens changed and now they are mainly used for recreational purposes.

 

Twenty-six thousand of these gardens exist in Vienna. It’s a special kind of person who lives here – mostly older people, but also younger families who combine the advantage of urban life with the escapism of the garden colonies. Due to the strict rules of these colonies, concerning both the look of the gardens as well as the behaviour of the occupants, a special mood surrounds the gardens. The artificial idyll of the garden gets foiled by feelings of paranoia, fear and sometimes loneliness that surround the inhabitants.

 

Nature is declared friend and foe at the same time. On the one hand, the occupants enjoy the beauty and peace of nature – on the other hand, the natural growth of the plants is seen as the enemy that needs to be fought with scissors, lawnmovers and hedgetrimmers. This dichotomy leads to a slightly grotesque appearance of the gardens, looking like outdoor living rooms.—Klaus Pichler

Beard | Photographer: Matt Rainwaters

Beard | Photographer: Matt Rainwaters | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Matthew Rainwaters was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, which is the part of Los Angeles nobody likes to talk about. He did a lot of skateboarding when he was younger, broke a lot of bones, and spent hours filming his friends; making skate videos eventually brought him to still photography. Once a veggie patty broke his nose in an epic food fight: in total he has broken 23 bones, spent more than a year on crutches, and has a metal plate holding the left side of his face together. He lived abroad for a very brief time and returned to California to work in a special effects studio that made monster movies. He graduated photo school at 23 and started teaching high school in Los Angeles a year later. He now lives in Austin and takes pictures for a living.

 

This work is from his series, Beardfolio, which has just been published by Chronicle Books. Rainwaters will be signing copies of ‘Beard’ at Domy Books in Austin this Wednesday, October 5.

Fault Line - A portrait of East Austin...| Photographer: John H. Langmore | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

A Portrait of East Austin and the Universal Story of Gentrification

East Austin is not the blank canvas developers might see. It’s like a Picasso—complex, disturbing when viewed from certain angles, beautiful when viewed from others. The purpose of this series is to reveal— and more importantly, to celebrate—the beauty, the history, the charm, and the perseverance of the people of East Austin and all the neighborhoods like it that the vagaries of time will render unrecognizable to future generations. — John Langmore, March 2009

Cross Country | Photographer: Roger Kisby

Cross Country | Photographer: Roger Kisby | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

With no money coming in and gas prices at an all-time high, I took off on a cross-country road trip. I didn’t have a set plan of where to go or what to shoot; I just knew that I wanted to travel and take photos before I returned to New York to start a new chapter in my career.

It was a fantastic experience. I tried to shoot a portrait every day, and I ultimately shot about 70 portraits of people I met along the way. These images are of whoever I came across: a biker at a rest stop in California, a priest at a church in New Mexico, prisoners on work release in Texas, squatters at Slab City, a stripper in Portland, a fly fisherman in Montana and many more.—Roger Kisby

Roger Kisby is a New York-based portrait and editorial photographer who recently quit his job in advertising to pursue a career in photography.

Interspace | Photographer: Kelly Kristin Jones,

Interspace | Photographer: Kelly Kristin Jones, | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Interspace explores the tension between the natural and the unnatural or, urban spaces in North Lawndale. What happens when these areas compete? Additionally, what happens to the urban figure when placed in this feral space existing in the inner-city environment?

The figure is no longer in the ghetto. They escape to a kind of ‘interspace’. This west side interspace is small, overlooked, underused and nearly lost. Abandoned space and empty lots are now areas of quasi-public/private ownership. Properties that were once the sites of derelict buildings become ‘no man’s land’ and soon volunteer plants and trees flourish and take over. These spaces are part dumping ground, part playground and part oasis to the residents of North Lawndale.—Kelly Kristin Jones

The SCAR Project | Photographer: David Jay

The SCAR Project | Photographer: David Jay | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

“In our society, breast cancer is hidden away behind a little pink ribbon. The public needs to be educated.”

David Jay, a professional fashion and beauty photographer of over 15 years, hopes to make a step in that direction with The SCAR Project, a series of large-scale portraits of young women and the scars from their journey with breast cancer.

 

The series came about five years ago when the disease hit home. Jay’s close friend Paulina was diagnosed when she was 29, and within two weeks she had a mastectomy. She modeled for Jay since the age of 17, so after her surgery Jay knew he couldn’t stop there. “I took her picture because, perhaps as a photographer, taking pictures is my way of confronting, understanding and accepting the things I see,” says Jay.

 

Coming from the world of fashion, where beauty is actually skin deep, The SCAR Project gave Jay an honest chance to capture the real complexity and beauty of strong, real women. Jay, however, was torn during the making of the series. While wanting to create raw and sincere images, he also wanted to honor his subjects who desired to feel beautiful. “They had already suffered greatly, and although I desperately wanted to serve them, I knew in my heart that compromising the visual integrity of The SCAR Project for the sake of easily digested beauty would serve no one.” The result is an unforgettable, emotional series, powerful in its message and subjects.

Out my window | Photographer: Gail Albert Halaban

Out my window | Photographer: Gail Albert Halaban | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Described as “hopperistic” by the New York Times and New Yorker, Gail Albert Halaban’s large-scale color photos provide a look into the private worlds of ordinary people. “I’m a photographer and therefore I’m a voyeur, and I’m a New Yorker and therefore I’m a voyeur,” said Halaban. Although staged, these photographs capture the realistic experience all New Yorkers can relate to. “I think every city has its own way that people connect to their neighbors. In LA it’s through the car window. In New York, I think it’s through the apartment window.” Halaban’s photographs range from a man playing with his dog to a couple playing with their baby, all with the backdrop of large architecture emphasizing the real New York experience, being one of eight million. Halaban’s book of peeping shots will be released this September by powerHouse books.

Human-Animal | Photographer: Alex Arzt | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"These are photographs of real people and the animals, objects, and places that belong to them. The similarities between life forms and the likenesses of our basic drives and behaviors drive me to find my subjects. To me, the indefinable difference between humans and animals is the mystery of animal perception that humans are only able to access through imagination and theory. When we see another living creature, we can never truly know how they perceive us or their environment. Evolution has formed an infinite variety of species all ranging in different types of intelligences, instincts, physical capabilities, and defense mechanisms."

In the Shadow of Wounded Knee | Photographer: Aaron Huey for National Geographic Magazine

In the Shadow of Wounded Knee | Photographer: Aaron Huey for National Geographic Magazine | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"On the Great Plains, hidden away on little traveled back roads, is American Prisoner of War Camp Number 334.  This is also known as Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, home of the Lakota Sioux.  They are the tribe that suffered the infamous Wounded Knee Massacre, in December of 1890, in which an estimated 350 Lakota were killed.  Among the dead were over one hundred unarmed women and children.  Since that day Wounded Knee, and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, have been a symbol of the wrongs inflicted on Native Americans by the descendants of Europeans. Pine Ridge is the quintessential example of the failures of the reservation system, with staggering statistics on everything from violent crime to education.  

Sadly, Pine Ridge continues to be the setting for an ongoing massacre within the tribe.  Gangs on the reservation are out of control, and the violence they live by grips even the smallest villages.  Unemployment on the reservation fluctuates between 85-90%, the housing office is unable to afford to build new structures, and existing structures are falling apart.  Many are homeless, and those with homes are packed into rotting buildings with up to five families.  Thirty-nine percent of the homes on the Pine Ridge Reservation have no electricity.  It is reported that at least 60% of the homes on the Pine Ridge Reservation are infested with black mold, which causes an often-fatal condition with infants, children, and the elderly.  90% of the population lives below federal poverty levels."

LIVE THROUGH THIS | Photographer: Tony Fouhse | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

In the Fall of 2010 photographer Tony Fouhse asked Stephanie MacDonald if there was something he could do to help her. Stephanie is a heroin addict. She asked him to help her get into rehab.

 

And so began a journey that lasted nine months, that began in despair and moved through horror towards hope, that took twists and turns unimaginable when they began.

Told through portraits of Stephanie, photographs of her notes to Tony and in Stephanie's own words, LIVE THROUGH THIS is a book that describes, defines and evokes that harrowing journey.

Car poolers | Photographer: Alejandro Cartagena

Car poolers | Photographer: Alejandro Cartagena | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Car poolers is a project that continues my visual research on how the suburbs impact the landscape, the city and its inhabitants. These workers going to work in this way speaks of the lack of urban planning in many cities around the world. I decided to pursue this project as it has many other social connotations such as working conditions, immigration, transportation issues, illegality, survival, routine, wealth and poverty.

I’ve been shooting car poolers for a year now and I still go back once or twice a month. I normally shoot from 7am to 9am when most people are going to work. I picked Monterrey’s highway 85 going southbound to one of the richest cities in Latin America, San Pedro.
I found a pedestrian overpass that looks over the cars coming out of a small tunnel. I stand there and “predict” which trucks might have people in the back and then jump to oversee that lane and wait for the truck to pass underneath and shoot." —Alejandro Cartagena

Alejandro Cartagena lives and works in Monterrey, Mexico. His projects employ landscape and portraiture as a means to examine social, urban and environmental issues. Cartagena’s work has been exhibited internationally and has been widely published in print media including Domus, Wallpaper, Le Monde, Newsweek, Stern, PDN and The New Yorker.

Before Life| Photographer: Araminta de Clermont

Before Life| Photographer: Araminta de Clermont | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

This series of portraits of girls all dressed up for their Matric Dance was photographed on the Cape Flats, a vast area outlying Cape Town. The Flats have been described as “apartheid’s dumping ground”, a place which still possesses all the attendant problems of a formerly forcibly displaced and fragmented society: poverty, crime, drug addiction and gangsterism.

 

For most matriculants and their families, the matric dance is a seminal moment: for some, it is a celebration of being the first member of their family ever to finish school, previous generations having been disadvantaged by the apartheid era education system and economic conditions; for others it is a night that formally marks the leaving behind of childhood and transition into adulthood; for the majority, especially in the cases of more impoverished families, it may primarily be a night of fantasy escapism, a chance to live out their dreams through costume and styling, their first and possibly their last real opportunity to dress up no holds-barred and be the centre of attention.

 

Many families will deny their children nothing for this outfit, costs often being budgeted into household expenses for up to a year in advance. The resultant look, I believe, speaks volumes: about the hopes, dreams, aspirations and influences of young South Africans today, before any disappointments, before their dreams are crushed. May they shine on.—Araminta de Clermont

The famous portrait of Lena Söderberg | Photographer: Dwight Hooker

The famous portrait of Lena Söderberg | Photographer: Dwight Hooker | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Lena Söderberg or Lena is the name given to a 512×512 pixel standard test image which has been in use since 1973,and was originally cropped from the centerfold of November 1972 issue of Playboy magazine. It is a picture of Lena Söderberg, a Swedish model, shot by photographer Dwight Hooker. The image is probably the most widely used test image for all sorts of image processing algorithms (such as compression and denoising) and related scientific publications.The anglicised version "Lenna" of Lena Söderberg's actual name comes from the Playboy article where Playboy changed the original "Lena".

 

Alexander Sawchuk estimates that it was in June or July of 1973 when he, then an assistant professor of electrical engineering at the USC Signal and Image Processing Institute (SIPI), along with a graduate student and the SIPI lab manager, was hurriedly searching the lab for a good image to scan for a colleague's conference paper. They had tired of their stock of usual test images, dull stuff dating back to television standards work in the early 1960s. They wanted something glossy to ensure good output dynamic range, and they wanted a human face. Just then, somebody happened to walk in with a recent issue of Playboy.

 

Dwight Hooker is a photographer for Playboy magazine. He was, at times, described as a master of the sensual and the erotic along with photographers Helmut Newton and J. Frederick Smith. Lena Söderberg, the standard test image for image processing algorithms (such as compression and denoising) and related scientific publications, was photographed by him.

 

Coincidentally, Playboy states the issue (November 1972) was its best-selling issue ever, having sold 7,161,561 copies as of May 2006, and the Lenna centerfold appears briefly in Woody Allen's film Sleeper released the following year.

Yemen: A fine balance | Photojournalist: Alex Potter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Yemen is entering a transition period. After a year of bloody protests, a new President reigns and is faced with restructuring and rebuilding the broken country. Yemen is faced with internal conflict, Al Qaeda, a looming famine, and water shortage in addition to rooting out the corruption planted by the former regime. Yet with this work-in-progress I hope to show that the driving force in Yemen is in the beating heart of its people, in the undeniable hope of freedom.—Alex Potter

Alex Potter is an emerging photojournalist who has worked primarily in Minneapolis, MN and Yemen. After graduating university with a nursing degree she decided to follow her calling rather than the advice of others and turned to a life in photography.

India's longest train journey - the himsagar express | Photographer: Suzanne Lee

India's longest train journey - the himsagar express | Photographer: Suzanne Lee | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"The 6318 / Himsagar Express, India's longest running train journey, takes us on a journey from the Indian Himalayas to the southern-most tip of India, spanning over 3720 kilometres. The train takes over 72 hours (often with delays) and halts at over 70 stations, crossing 9 states in the vast expanses of India. A wide diversity of locals travel on this train - students returning home to their hometowns, farmers going from village to village, families and sadhus of making pilgrimage and even people just going to work for the week. Buskers, beggars, snake charmers, chai and hot meal hawkers, toiletries peddlers and newspaper wallahsregularly punctuate the festive and pensive air as they hop on and off the moving train as it passes through the ever-changing countryside landscapes and 'smell-scapes'."

Emil Hartvig, a documentary/art photographer based in Copenhagen, recently returned from the Midwest where he photographed ‘preppers’ in their homes and surrounds.  Preppers are those who are actively preparing for the end of the world—for society as we know it to collapse. These men, women and children study survival techniques as well as store weapons, ammunition and food in order to ready themselves for the end of modern society. They have varying beliefs on how the world will end including nuclear war, terrorism, natural disasters and/or economic collapse.

Beards of Evil | Photographer: Andreas Jakwerth

Beards of Evil | Photographer: Andreas Jakwerth | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

The series ‘Beards of Evil’ combines the beard style of some of the more evil villains of mankinds history with contemprorary, urban fashion. For us, it was interesting to see how nicely some of these styles would work with today’s fashion even though you cannot wear a beard like these nowadays.

 

I shot this series for the Austrian magazine thegap, which focuses on urban culture and music. One of their friends who had been growing a beard for about seven years, decided to finally get rid of it, so we jumped in and realized the series with the help of stylist Magdalena Vukovic and hairdresser Thomas Pavlidis. The model, a non-professional, changed his expression to fit perfectly with the style of beard he was wearing.

 

In the end the series never got published in the magazine because one of the fashion labels didn’t like the historical person we chose for their clothing.—Andreas Jakwerth

To drift savannah | Photographer: David Strohl

To drift savannah | Photographer: David Strohl | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

We all interact and entwine our stories, telling of the local culture and thus helping to define a greater region. The way we act, the things we do, the way we strive for uniqueness and individuality through the adornment of ourselves and our space, cannot help but be influenced by the intricate cultural relationships that envelop our lives.

In situationist texts, a “dérive” (translates as “drift”) is an attempt at analysis of the totality of everyday life via the passive movement through space. With this idea in mind, I set out to wander, examine, and interpet the structure, flow, and intricacies of the world around us. Through repeated exploration, there has become apparent a rich and complex network of relationships between inhabitants and their surroundings. Much has been revealed about our personal identities and the choices that we make, as much as the broader scope of the work is linked to the nature of how all people attempt to define themselves. The struggle, of course, is to find a way to encounter this uniqueness in the presence of the all-encompassing spectacle of modern society. We can’t help but be defined by where we are; we will always be within the system. As Guy Debord pointed out, “He will essentially follow the language of the spectacle, for it is the only one he is familiar with…it is not a collection of images, but a social relation among people, mediated by images.
