Uganda Color | Photographer: Gloria Feinstein

Uganda Color | Photographer: Gloria Feinstein | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

“For the past six years I’ve been making photographs of the children living at St. Mary Kevin Orphanage in Uganda. These kids have lost one or both parents to disease or civil war. I founded a not-for-profit organization called Change the Truth shortly after my first visit in 2006. Since then, these children have become part of my extended family. I spend most of the year raising funds to help provide food, medical care and school fees for them. Without assistance, their futures would be dim. Once a year I return to the orphanage to spend time with them and make pictures. This past December I ventured outside the walls of the orphanage to meet and photograph some of the people living in the surrounding village."

 

"The warm, generous Ugandans I have met along the way love having their picture taken; in some cases my pictures have been the first they have ever seen of themselves. The children at the orphanage and in the village feel that because I share my photographs with so many once I return to America, they are surely quite famous! They also know that the photographs I make give them a voice they might not otherwise have; this voice leads to a raising of awareness about their plight and a positive change in their lives.”

- Gloria Baker Feinstein

Voodoo | Photographer Dan Kitwood. | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

The little known nation of Benin is tiny by African standards, sat in the gulf of Guinea hemmed in by the might of Nigeria on its Eastern flank and Togo to the West, with the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean lapping along its palm fringed beaches. This former French colony is rich in colonial history; home to the “Slave Coast” of Ouidah, and the spiritual birthplace of Voodoo.

Datuk Chachar: Penetrating the Surface of a Subject | Photographer: Michael Yamashita

Datuk Chachar: Penetrating the Surface of a Subject | Photographer: Michael Yamashita | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

When my teenaged daughter asked me if I had any pictures of Hindu practices that she could take to her next yoga class, I was taken off-guard.  Though I have plenty of frames of yogis and aesthetes, naked sadhus and countless celebrations in honor of deities, the first Hindu tradition that came to mind is the Datuk Chachar in Malacca.  This particular celebration is about as far away from the soft flute playing, incense burning, tree-posing of my daughter’s class as you can get, definitely not for the faint of heart or stomach.

Speedliting Mr. OneLight | Photographer:  Syl Arena | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

In the Speedliter’s Handbook I have a chapter on shooting portraits with one Speedlite. Who better to shoot as the lead-off subject than Mr. OneLight himself? So, while I was sitting in on Zack’s workshop, my eyes kept wandering over to this heavy steel door in the corner of the studio. Twelve hours after the workshop started (and several hours before it would end), I set up my gear during a break.

Displaced: The Mongolian Kazakhs | Photographer: Christo Geoghegan

Displaced: The Mongolian Kazakhs | Photographer: Christo Geoghegan | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

When Kazakhstan declared itself an independent country in 1991 with the fall of the Soviet Union, the newly elected prime minister Nursultan Nazirbyaev set out to try and reclaim the rich cultural heritage of the Kazakhs that had been lost after years of Russian rule and its resulting colonisation.
Border agreements, forced collectivisation under Stalin and the Chinese Cultural revolution were just a few of many factors which led to mass Kazakh migration across regions now known as Bayan-Ölgii (Mongolian’s westernmost state) and Xinjinag (China), where Kazakh culture tradition are still practiced the same way in which they have for hundreds of years. In Bayan-Ölgii, 90% of the native population are Kazakh with Kazakh being the state language also.
This mass migration has led to a cultural crisis in Kazakhstan, where Soviet rule had all but wiped out these cultural traditions. Practices such as the art of hunting with eagles and the nomadic way

The Oracles of Kodungallur | Travel Photographer: Tewfic El-Sawy | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

The Oracles of Kodungallur celebrate their festival in the Bhagawati temple in Kerala, which usually occurs between the months of March and April. It involves sacrifice of cocks and shedding of the Oracles own blood, to appease the goddess Kali and her demons who are said to relish blood offerings. A chaotic religious event attended by thousands of devotees and their extended families, and certainly not for the fainthearted.

Cystic Fibrosis | Photographer: Kyle Monk

Cystic Fibrosis | Photographer: Kyle Monk | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

I am working with the CF Foundation to create dramatic, powerful, and intimate portraits of people with Cystic Fibrosis to help bring awareness to this genetic disease - most common among caucasians. Airway clearance techniques (ACTs) and nebulizers are treatments that help people with CF stay healthy and breathe easier.  Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease of the mucus glands that affects many body systems. The disorder's most common signs and symptoms include progressive damage to the respiratory system and chronic digestive system problems.  

ACTs loosen thick, sticky lung mucus so it can be cleared by coughing or huffing. Clearing airways reduces lung infections and improves lung function. ACTs are often used with other treatments, like inhaled bronchodilators and antibiotics.

Nebulizers break down liquid medicine into aerosol mist that can be inhaled by the patient through a mouthpiece or facemask. Like inhalers, these devices can deliver medication straight into the lungs by simply inhaling the medication mist.

Staged reality : Photographer: Sebastian Keitel | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

For this series, Staged Reality, Keitel staged and photographed interiors of slum huts in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka, where about 4 million people live in 5,000 informal settlements. The growing number of slums in developing countries is a global problem, the precise location therefore not so important. This work is rather an example for the living conditions of over one billion people worldwide. In addition, the photographs tell of man’s striving to create his home as comfortable as possible, even under such extreme conditions.

 

Sebastian Keitel is a recent graduate of University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Art and Design Bielefeld, Germany. He lives in Cologne, Germany and works everywhere.

Wild Roots | Photographer: Mike Belleme

Wild Roots | Photographer: Mike Belleme | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Mike Belleme is a freelance photographer living in Asheville North Carolina. His work strives to invite the viewer into the lives of unique people.

 

"In the mountains of North Carolina there is an expanse of donated land inhabited by a small group of people who, for their own reasons, choose not to live as members of modern society. Tod and Talia, a couple, have been living in this place called Wild Roots for over seven years. Among the many reasons for eschewing modern society is their belief that the fall of civilization is imminent. Tod and Talia find comfort living with nature and being directly connected with most of the food that they eat, clothes that they wear and their surroundings. They, along with a fluctuating number of other resident of Wild Roots, are constantly trying to move farther away from reliance on society and build a stronger and more intimate relationship with their natural surroundings."

Wilkes traveled all over China, from megalopolises such as Beijing and Shanghai, to more modest cities such as Changsha and Guilin, attempting to capture old China's coexistence with new China.
Along with traditional pastorals, there are long shots of elaborate factories. "China's moving away from being a farming society and putting more weight on manufacturing," Wilkes says. "I'd heard the factories were as big as American football fields."

Umbra | Photographer: Julie Renée Jones

Umbra | Photographer: Julie Renée Jones | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"In Umbra I seek to explore the collapse of reality into the fantastic. I use a set cast of characters, my family, which repeat and become confused with one another throughout the series. This creates the idea that the events and people that are in the photographs are part of a specific Midwestern neighborhood or subdivision, and that what is taking place is part of a parallel reality and alternate universe."

 

"In pursing all of this my photographs begin to reveal a psychological level to growing up in the predominately white, middle-class environment of Midwestern suburbia. The photographs are based on my personal childhood memories of growing up there and they directly speak to the slippages between actual events and the exaggerated recollection of childhood. Some of the most mundane moments are elevated to the point of extreme significance through my usage of light and shadow to create a sense of magic, unease, and drama."

 

"I’m also interested in the way people get confused in our memories or how their roles shift, and that they are recalled as otherworldly caricatures of themselves. I think the most defining aspect of the work that has revealed itself as I have worked on Umbra is the exploration of the borderland between innocence and experience. This particular aspect is most evident with the children in the photographs but I believe that it is also present with the adults. With the children there is a conflict between the youthfulness of their physical form and the evolving understanding and awareness of the world around them."

Stills From Unseen Films : BloodyPixy | Photographer: Yijun Liao | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

This project is a tribute to all the great films I haven’t seen. I’m very interested in the film stills from those unseen films. The orphaned film stills always trigger my imagination, and become a perfect film in my mind.

In this project, I setup scenes that I would like to see in a film. I pretend that these photos are from real films with various names. Most of these photos depict individuals in certain environments. They all seem to be lost in thought. What are they thinking about? In fact, they are thinking about whatever I asked them to think about. They could be thinking about whatever you think they are thinking about. These photos are from films that exist only in my mind. Now they become films that exist in your mind. In this way, the imagined film is transferred from my mind to your mind but with a meaning of its own.
