Running | Photographer: Tabitha Soren

Running | Photographer: Tabitha Soren | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Tabitha Soren began her series called Running with a chance discovery after photographing her daughter by the headlights of a car, in the act of running. Upon seeing the images, Soren had the sense she was trapping her daughter inside the frame. “I started thinking about panic, resilience, and the role of accident in life,” she says. “Also, when people are running their bodies contort and we get to glimpse emotions that are normally kept hidden.”

 

Soren’s Running series, along with the work by five other photographers (Martin Bogren, Barbara Ciurej & Lindsay Lochman, Monika Merva, and Shawn Rocco) is included in Fresh, the annual summer exhibition at Klompching Gallery. The artists were selected by Darren Ching (owner of the Klompching Gallery) and distinguished collector, Fred Bidwell (Bidwell Projects), for their consistency of vision, originality, craftsmanship and strong viewpoint. In addition to the gallery show, which opens tomorrow night, the artists’ works will be published in Blink magazine, and showcased online by Flak Photo.

Theyyam performers | Travel Photographer: Tewfic El-Sawy

Theyyam performers  | Travel Photographer: Tewfic El-Sawy | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"I've added a couple of galleries to my recently published website:www.telsawy.com. One of the galleries groups photographs of The Sufis, while the other has a grouping of Theyyam performers.

Red is the color of fire and blood, and associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, courage, desire, and love. And it's used in many religious rituals and festivals in India, and worn by religious practitioners such as the Theyyam of Northern Malabar and theVellichapads (or Oracles) of Kodunggallur.

Theyyam is a living cult with several thousand-year-old traditions, rituals and customs, it includes many of the castes and classes of the Hindu religion in the Malabar region. The word Theyyam is a corrupt form of Devam or God. People of the region consider Theyyam itself as a god and seek blessings from them. 


As for the Oracles of Kodungallur, they celebrate both Kali and Shiva at an intense festival that lasts about a week.In their thousands, these red-clad devotees perform self mortification acts by banging on their heads with ceremonial swords repeatedly until blood trickle down their foreheads, and daub the wounds with turmeric. A photo essay titled Agony & Ecstasydocuments the Oracles religious event. 

And yes, I do like the color red." (Tewfic El-Sawy)

City Space | Photographer: Clarissa Bonet

City Space | Photographer: Clarissa Bonet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"The urban space is striking. Its tall and mysterious buildings, crowds of anonymous people, an endless sea of concrete constantly intrigue me.  City Space is a ongoing photographic exploration of the urban environment and my perception of it.  I am interested in the physical space of the city and its emotional and psychological impact on the body.  These photographs reconstruct mundane events in the city that I have personally experienced or witnessed in public. Stark light, deep shadow and muted color are visual strategies I explore to describe the city.  I use the city as a stage and transform the physical space into a psychological one.   The images I create do not represent a commonality of experience but instead provide a personal interpretation of the urban landscape."

Staged reality : Photographer: Sebastian Keitel

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."

NYPD: Operation Impact | Photographer: Antonio Bolfo

NYPD: Operation Impact | Photographer: Antonio Bolfo | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Antonio Bolfo worked as a police officer in the NYPD from 2006 to 2008 where he patrolled some of the most dangerous housing projects in the Bronx. Bolfo says, “There was a substantial amount of depression in the unit and at the precinct in general, but no one would ever admit it out of fear it would be taken as a sign of weakness. People deal with depression in a number of ways, some take to alcohol, others to infidelity. For me it was photography that helped ease the burden.” Bolfo’s series, IMPACT: Life On The Housing Beat opens tomorrow, July 24, at the Half King gallery in NY. The photographer Antonio Bolfo will participate in an opening night discussion with Ed Conlon, former NYPD detective and author of Blue Blood.

 

Operation IMPACT is an NYPD program that assigns young, untested officers to the most violent and dangerous neighborhoods of New York City for a full-scale plunge into “The Job.” Part field training, part trial by fire, IMPACT pits these officers against some of the most vicious criminals in the country on a daily basis. This photography project follows one IMPACT unit consisting of thirty rookies assigned to housing projects in the South Bronx, one of the poorest and toughest neighborhoods in America.

 

Many criminologists directly attribute Operation IMPACT to New York City’s 21st century revival. But the focus on arrests comes at a price: sacrificing community policing, which leads to a tense relationship between the neighborhood’s beleaguered residents and the overstrained cops.

Old regular mountain | Photographer: Stacy Kranitz

Old regular mountain | Photographer: Stacy Kranitz | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Representing place is a complicated series of negotiations.  How can the photographer demystify stereotypes, sum up experience, interpret memory and history."

"Regression to the mean is a term used to define a phenomenon in statistical analysis. If a variable is extreme on its first measurement, it will tend to be closer to the average on its second measurement."
 
"This concept outlines my process, which requires many visits in order to gain a photographic series of images that averages these extremes. I am initially drawn to stereotypes. Then I look to demystify these stereotypes only to find that they are rooted in some sort of reality. I do not exclude the stereotypical image from my representations, nor do I only seek it out. The resulting images are a regression to the mean and the mean is interwoven with both typical and atypical lives captured through controlled and chance operations."
 
"Nothing is all one thing or its opposite. There are moments in time that you see a degree of continuity between these opposing forces.  Ultimately the term Regression to the Mean articulates the flaws of representation. Flaws which I openly embrace." (Stacy Kranitz: http://stacykranitzprojects.com/old-regular-mountain)

Yakuza | Photographer: Anton Kusters

Yakuza | Photographer: Anton Kusters | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"YAKUZA is a personal visual account of the life inside an inaccessible subculture: a traditional Japanese crime family that controls the streets of Kabukicho, in the heart of Tokyo, Japan.

Through 10 months of negotiations with the Shinseikai, my brother Malik and I became one of the only westerners ever to be granted this kind of access to the closed world of Japanese organized crime."

"With a mix of photography, film, writing and graphic design, I try to share not only their complex relationship to Japanese society, but also to show the personal struggle of being forced to live in two different worlds at the same time; worlds that often have conflicting morals and values. It turns out not to be a simple ‘black’ versus ‘white’ relationship, but most definitely one with many, many, many shades of grey." (Anton Kusters)

 

Anton Kusters is a Belgium-based photographer specializing in long-term projects. In 2011, he published his first photobook on the Yakuza, the Japanese organized crime families, that he photographed for two years.

LU | Photographer: Arianna Sanesi

LU | Photographer: Arianna Sanesi | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

LU, the Ukrainian nickname for Ludmila, is a work in progress about one of those women that come to Italy from Eastern Europe to grant their family a better life. They usually work as caretakers for old people but Ludmila got ill and was hospitalised for a long period. We met in Italy but I followed her back in Ukraine for Christmas: it was three years she didn’t go home. Her world is firm and warm. Full of signs from the past but also of the welfare she’s working to afford.

 

She managed to have a beautiful marriage for her daughter and she’s very proud of it. She’s still the head of the family, loved and well respected for what she’s doing for them. But you can feel in the air the fear for her leaving again.
Her dream is completing a building they started by their house to open a florist shop. The pictures I’m sending try to depict the world she left behind.

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.”

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 | 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.

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
