Records of life - Photography by Anders T. Johansson

Records of life - Photography by Anders T. Johansson | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it

Looking at Anders’ photographs remind of old Super 8 films of parties, weddings and family holidays, remind of proud parent’s taping the first steps, the first words of their children. Even though the images can’t be compared with those old vintage movies, we all know, in their style and aesthetics they have the same power: to show life as simple, intimate and beautiful as it is. Johansson manages to become part of the scene in front of him. His images document and record, but not from a distance. Without being close ups in a technical way Anders’ works are close ups of the life in front of his camera.

Creating Photographic Art - Exclusive Interview With Gregory Crewdson | Fstoppers | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it
How do you make a photograph that sells for more than $100,000? Gregory Crewdson may not have the answer, and I suspect he probably doesn’t care, but that is what his prints will routinely fetch, if not more. What is it that allows him to create such staggeringly powerful works of art, and what are the struggles he endures through the creative process?

Lorsque la capitale ukrainienne a sombré dans la violence après plusieurs semaines d'un bras de fer entre forces de l'ordre et manifestants pro-européens, le 22 janvier 2014,  les affrontements du centre-ville, notamment sur la place de l'Indépendance ont pris l'allure d'un champ de bataille cinématographique. 

 

Jamais la presse n'avait reçu des photographies aussi "belles" et "picturales". La photographie la plus emblématique qui a fait le tour du monde, est celle du photographe Andrey Stenin de l'Agence RIA Novosti.

Street photography around the world | Photographer: Maciej Dakowicz

Street photography around the world | Photographer: Maciej Dakowicz | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it

"Most people say that street photography features people photographed on the street in unposed situations. For me this definition is simply too broad as it includes portraiture, reportage and peopled cityscape, which might have nothing to do with the genre. For me this broad definition can be narrowed easily to define proper street photography by adding just one word – “a twist”. A little twist – something clever, funny, unexpected, surprising or ambiguous. Something making you scratch your head, something putting a smile on your face… And the photo does not have to be taken on the street – it can be shot indoors, on the beach or in the forest. What matters is that little “twist”.
 
What are the key elements of a good photo? In my opinion it is the content, composition and light. The content is most important for me. Sometimes a poorly composed and lit photograph still can be good, what matters is the message it conveys. The composition is the way elements are placed and related to each other in the frame. It greatly depends on the distance from the subject – usually the closer you get the more dynamic perspectives you can achieve that can make your compositions more interesting.

 

The light is what illuminates the scene and produces shadows and highglights in the image. It can be natural or artificial. It can be a direct sunlight (which can be soft or harsh depending on the time of the day), soft ambient light in the shade or flash produced by the flashgun on top of the camera. When these three elements come together nicely in one frame you most probably have a great photo."- Maciej Sakowicz

Spheres of Surrealism - Photography by Karl Dmitri Bishop

Spheres of Surrealism - Photography by Karl Dmitri Bishop | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it

Karl Dmitri Bishop – the Unconscious, the Absurd and the Fantastic.

 

Are these photos from this world? This question rises looking at Karl Dmitri Bishop’s works. His images take us back into the spheres of Surrealism. And further.


Bishop seems to pick up several techniques from 1920s Surrealists to create certain pictures in his black and white images that leave our common surroundings behind. Overlays and double exposures evoke dreamlike impressions. The photos origin lies clearly in today’s world, but by creating his collages Bishop opens up an entire new space, not only in his images but also for the spectator’s view. Looking at his photos feels like making a journey. Layer by Layer: you enter a whole different — yes a rather surreal — world. Our common understanding seems to be left behind. And even though his compositions question todays’ status quo one thing is revealed: Life is more than just an image with one dimension, one country or one feeling.

Lookfilter.com - A starting point for creativity's insight:
Do you think it’s important to study photography?

Somebody once told me “If you want to be a photographer, you have to go to university”. That really upset me and made me even more determined to prove them wrong. Creativity comes from within, I believe my work mirrors my untapped thoughts and desires.
I taught myself through trial and error, developing my own sense of style. I don’t take photos the professional way. I’m a bit more DIY, that’s what makes me different.

Steve McCurry on photography's globalised challenge | Phaidon

Steve McCurry on photography's globalised challenge |  Phaidon | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it

Steve McCurry, the brilliant Magnum photographer, is forever travelling the globe. So it's probably best to pay attention when he talks about how the world is changing. In an interview with the US website, American Photo, based around his latest book, Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs, the photographer laments the planet's growing homogeneity.

He explained to the magazine that, when in Atlanta late last year, he went out looking for a high-density neighbourhood, like those found in Brooklyn or Queens, in which to shoot some pictures. "But nobody really walks there," he marveled. "It's like LA. There's virtually no pedestrian traffic unless you're somewhere like Sunset Blvd."

This narrowing of aesthetic diferences is something that Steve has noticed the world over. "When I walk through an airport, I think, 'This is the future.' All airports look the same. They're steel and glass. You walk through a shopping mall in India and it could be in Cleveland. There's almost no difference."

Hereros | Photographer: Jim Naughten

Hereros | Photographer: Jim Naughten | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it

“I traveled in Africa after finishing college. I bought an old motorbike and more or less stumbled across Namibia on my journey. It was instantly spellbinding—the extraordinary landscapes, the colorful and varied inhabitants and their surreal and often brutal history. I photographed the same tribe back then with my old film camera but always wanted to return to make a more extended project. I’m fascinated by history and often choose projects that make connections with the past.”

 

“Each image, a portrait of Herero tribe members of Namibia, 
reveals a material culture that harkens the region’s tumultuous 
past: residents wear Victorian era dresses and paramilitary 
costume as a direct result and documentation of its early 20th 
century German colonization.

Namibia’s borders encompass the world’s oldest desert. Bleak 
lunar landscapes, diamond mines, German ghost towns, rolling 
sea fogs, nomadic tribes and a hostile coastline littered with 
shipwrecks and whale skeletons comprise the region’s striking 
and haunting natural features. Namibia’s geography has 
witnessed a turbulent and little documented history of human 
settlement, upheaval and war within a particularly brutal 
period of European colonization. 

In the European scramble to colonise Africa, Kaiser Wilhelm’s 
Germany claimed one of the least populated and most hostile 
environments on the planet. It became Deutsche Sudewest- 
afrika. Though sparsely populated, it was already home to the 
San, Nama and Herero people. Rhenish missionaries set about 
converting and clothing them after European fashion. Over 
time, this became a Herero tradition, and continuing to dress 
in this manner was a great source of pride to the wearer. 
Gradually, regional variations in the silhouette emerged; for 
example, the addition of 'cow horns' to headdresses reflects 
the great importance with which they regard their cattle.“ - Jim Naughten
