Wrestlers | Photographer: Daniel Patrick Lilley | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Daniel Patrick Lilley is a portrait and editorial photographer located on the south coast of England. He is currently studying commercial photography at the Arts Institute, Bournemouth. This is a selection from his Wrestlers series.

Yakalaben | Photographer: NAMSA LEUBA

Yakalaben | Photographer: NAMSA LEUBA | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
Namsa Leuba is a young African-European photographer based in Switzerland, and a recent alumnus of ECAL, that ever-fertile proving ground for creative talent in Lausanne. The striking work here, from her series Ya Kala Ben (Crossed Look) was shot in Guinea Conakry in West Africa, and partly explores the rituals and cosmology of the people there. The weirder elaborate costumes in the more formal work here are based on votive Guinean statuettes, recreated using models and props on location. All the images have a strong, powerful vision but there is a vague sense of unease and exploitation on the viewer's part. Hugo's work is either of real, raw individuals living extraordinary lives, or of actors and players in full horror make-up.

Street photography | Photographer: Nils Jorgensen

Street photography | Photographer: Nils Jorgensen | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Nils Jorgensen is an Denmark street photographer. Member of street photography collective In-Public.

 

London-based photographer Nils Jorgensen has an instinct for low-key, often overlooked beauty. Poetry has been an important influence on him. He picks out the work of Philip Larkin in particular, and it is easy to see how Larkin’s understated lyricism and fascination with ordinary things is paralleled in Jorgensen’s photographic style.

Jorgensen makes his living as a news and celebrity photographer, but in his life as a street photographer, he could not be any less like a member of the paparazzi. “Working full time covering news, celebrities, meeting deadlines and so forth can make it hard to switch back to taking photographs of small random moments which have no obvious news or commercial significance”, he admits. “It requires a different way of thinking and working.  But it’s what I’ve always done and it’s very important to me.  The truth is I don’t really want to disturb the flow of life around me. I much prefer waiting and hoping for something to happen. It’s also much simpler. For me the whole point of photography is not to interfere with what is happening, or might be about to happen.”

Jorgensen has shown and published his work internationally and is part of the street photography collective In-Public (http://www.in-public.com/NilsJorgensen/gallery/61). This photograph was included in the Thames and Hudson book Street Photography Now.

Shows and National Trust | Pohotographer: Arnhel de Serra

Shows and National Trust | Pohotographer: Arnhel de Serra | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Anglo–Spanish photographer Arnhel de Serra has a talent for capturing the idiosyncrasies of our culture which I presume is at least partly down to the perspective inherent in having mixed heritage. In projects like Shows and National Trust he succeeds in showing that these quintessentially British features are not abstract environments but events where people come together and passions are shared.

 

His is a multilayered approach, which sets as much store in the dozing elderly National Trust visitor as it does the sweeping vista of the property itself, and values the intimate moments in a shady vegetable tent as much as the big set-piece country show stalwarts. As a mirror on ourselves it’s not just accurate, but charming too.

His work will be on show as part of the London Festival of Photography which starts in June.

Street photography | Photographer: David Gibson

Street photography | Photographer: David Gibson | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"I probably spend more time looking at photographs than I do actually taking them. My shelves at home are lined with photography books. The work of the so-called master photographers – and the less heralded – have always been a source of reassurance and stimulation for my own photography."

 

Photographers such as Elliott Erwitt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mario Giacomelli, Robert Frank, Sylvia Plachy and Tony Ray-Jones, to name but a few. The list is endless and always open to change. Street photography for me is an instinctive urge and after more than twenty years of wandering with my camera, it still remains about staying curious and inspired – and then looking for the luck”

 

David Gibson worked for several years as a Residential Social Worker before pursuing photography full-time in 1994. In 2002 he completed an MA in Photography: History and Culture at the London College of Printing.

David’s work has been widely published and he is often commissioned by leading design agencies in the UK.

 

In addition to his photography David regularly leads Street Photography workshops in London and increasingly in other cities worldwide.

Haiti Cherie | Photographer: Alice Smeets

Haiti Cherie | Photographer: Alice Smeets | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

I am yet to meet someone who has not been moved by Haitis beautiful landscapes, colorful streets and rich culture. Nor, have I not met anyone who has not been shocked by its poverty erodes the country. Haiti is full of contrast and complexity. You can spend years in Haiti and still not understand the place. The countrys history is complex and contrasting. In 1804 Haiti attracted the worlds attention by becoming the first black republic to declare independence.

 

Today it attracts attention for being the poorest Nation in the Western Hemisphere. The population has witnessed many corrupt leaders as well as substantial exploitation at the hands of foreign governments, especially the United States and France. The country has always been considered as a place where anyone can grow rich off the backs of the poor and is the archetypal example of a system that sees the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Even though Haitians, when asked how they are, will invariably simply say: I am good, thanks. It is a nation with a strong will to survive and to go on without complaining. It is a story of a nations persistence and of the dignity and pride of these people everyday life.

From the Island | Jiří Makovec

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

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).

Her series Cholita examines modern coastal Peruvian culture with an emphasis on the Peruvian social constructs, which are a legacy of colonial times. The word Cholo derives its origin from colonial times and signifies a dog of disreputable origin, and was used by the colonial Spaniards as an insult. Today the word is commonly used with both positive and negative connotations depending upon the context and reflects a central paradox of Latin American culture. The following images come from her seriesCholita.

Fashion | Photographers: Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello

Fashion | Photographers: Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Sofia and Mauro are an Argentinian duo who create sharp, quirky and sexy fashion stories for numerous glossy editorial titles. Numero in particular has been a great forum for them, and they've contributed main fashion stories to almost every issue for years now. The duo (once a married couple, but now separated yet still the closest of friends) explore many different themes and ideas of female sexuality in their work, managing to explore fetishes and fantasies that are provocative without ever being crass or explicit. They also realise interesting and intimate portraits, but its their fashion work that really stands out.

 

Photographic duos seem increasingly prevalent, and their working dynamic is often complicated - sometimes one will style and have the ideas whilst the other concentrates more on the technical side of capturing the pictures. Sofia and Mauro prefer to take it in turns to shoot, Mauro starting and shooting for 2-3 minutes, then stepping back whilst Sofia starts working with her camera. They talk and discuss what's working and what's not whilst they're shooting, then take a break and agree on whether they have got the shot. Later, they'll edit the images together and agree, almost unerringly, on which is their strongest image. Shown below is a selection of some of their standout images from the last few years.

Tuburculosis in India | Photographer: Lynsey Addario | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

For those infected with tuberculosis in the impoverished state of Bihar in India, treatment options are bleak. Private treatment is expensive and government hospitals are often overcrowded and understaffed causing many to be misdiagnosed with the disease. In November 2010, The New Yorker reported that India has over two million new cases a year, and that an estimated one thousand people die from Tuberculosis every day. With so few choices and a growing world problem many are hoping to find a new treatment that is reliable and cost efficient.

Istanbul: City of a Hundred Names | Photographer: Alex Webb

Istanbul: City of a Hundred Names | Photographer: Alex Webb | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

In Istanbul: City of a Hundred Names, Magnum photographer Alex Webb displays his particular ability to distill gesture, color and contrasting cultural tensions into a single, beguiling frame. He presents a vision of Istanbul as an urban cultural center, rich with the incandescence of its past--a city of minarets and pigeons rising to the heavens during the early-morning call to Muslim prayers--yet also a city riddled with ATM machines and clothed in designer jeans.

 

Webb began photographing Istanbul in 1998, and became instantly enthralled: by the people, the layers of culture and history, the richness of street life. But what particularly drew him in was a sense of Istanbul as a border city, lying between Europe and Asia. "For 30-some years as a photographer, I have been intrigued by borders, places where cultures come together, sometimes easily, sometimes roughly." The resulting body of work, some of Webb's strongest to date, conveys the frisson of a culture in transition, yet firmly rooted in a complex history. With essay by the Nobel Prize winning novelist, Orhan Pamuk.

Old Delhi | Photographer: Lana Slezic

Old Delhi | Photographer: Lana Slezic | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

In the memories of my youth, my park is a treasured place. The trees are old and tall, their branches blotted with bursts of electric green. The wooden benches are worn and scratched with the initials of love-struck teenagers. In autumn, the crackling, sun-burnt leaves are so plentiful that the grass disappears.

 

My park is a safe place, one where I leave my mother behind, as I dash up the dirt path in search of adventure. Confidence builds in the sandbox and laughter hides behind the trees. In my park, the swings are the center of the universe. The street kids I photographed in Old Delhi call the place where they live “the park.” Not a strand of grass has the misfortune of growing there.

 

The ground reeks of urine and burning rubbish. Sniffing glue is the center of this world. Shoeless children play happily in the scorched dirt, flicking marbles for money so they can eat, their tummies grumbling with hunger. This park bears no resemblance to that of my youth. Somewhere in the cloud of that disparity I quiver in fear—fear that change will never come to these children.

Congoloses wrestlers | Photographer: Colin Delfosse

Congoloses wrestlers | Photographer: Colin Delfosse | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Kinshasa, 2010. Eight million inhabitants, thousands of shegués (street children), hundreds of wrestlers and their brass bands. Edingwe, Dragon, City Train, Mbokotomo : the “legends” of Congolese wrestling invent themselves on a daily basis in the outskirts of Kinshasa. Body-building, and even black magic enthusiasts fight for glory in makeshift rings. They come from the streets and their charisma commands respect and admiration. But the heros of the ring are modest in victory : « Kobeta libanga papa mundele » [we manage, white man]. In the last hours of the day, when they have hung up their everyday “occupations”, they put on masks and wrestling kit ready to fight. The motorised parade of wrestlers attracts crowds from the dusty streets of Massina, Ngili and Matete, towns round the Congolese capital. In back yards, on the tables of the street cafés, or even in the street, the spell casters warm up over primus stoves and cannabis. The ring is hastily set up, the judge climbs onto the ropes. “Let the match begin!” The fight starts and is usually more or less fixed. Rounds follow one another until the final spell is cast, until the adversary is floored, until the next fight.

 

Graduated in journalism, Colin Delfosse turned to documentary photography in 2005, and became one of the founding members of the Out of Focus collective.

Getting Ahead in Dharavi | Photographer : Adam Ferguson for NYTimes.com

Getting Ahead in Dharavi  | Photographer : Adam Ferguson for NYTimes.com | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
As many as a million people live and work in Dharavi, a sprawling slum in Mumbai, India.

 

MUMBAI, India — At the edge of India’s greatest slum, Shaikh Mobin’s decrepit shanty is cleaved like a wedding cake, four layers high and sliced down the middle. The missing half has been demolished. What remains appears ready for demolition, too, with temporary walls and a rickety corrugated roof.

 

Based in New Delhi from 2007 to 2011,  Adam Ferguson documented social tensions within the world's largest democracy and Pakistan as it grappled with poverty and political insecurity. During his time based in South Asia he embarked on his most in-depth photographic project; an exploration into the corners of the US led military occupation of Afghanistan.

Kathputli is my Home | Photojpournalist: Zackary Canepari | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Kathputli Colony slum in North Delhi is an illegal settlement or shantytown, which is both home and a mecca for the thousands of itinerant and non-itinerant magicians, acrobats, jugglers, musicians, dancers and puppeteers who perform in the vast Indian sub-continent. Whether performing in the marble lobbies of top hotels or in the back streets of impoverished slums and villages, the nearly all of the 1,500-3,000 families in the colony are professional performing artists, and consider Kathputli thier home. 

Zackary Canepari's talents are obvious in the feature. His super-saturated medium squarish format photographs frame his subjects perfectly, and bring out the captured moment of the expression.
