Revealing Photos of People Lying Down in a Week's Worth of Trash

Revealing Photos of People Lying Down in a Week's Worth of Trash | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
California-based photographer Gregg Segal provides a visual representation of the trash problem in the US with his revealing series 7 Days of Garbage. The photographer invited people from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds—friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and near-strangers—to come to his backyard with a week's worth of their garbage. Spread out over natural backgrounds like sand, grass, and water, the subjects wallow in the trash they've accumulated over seven days, providing a shocking glimpse of consumption and waste in the US.
While some subjects filtered out the most disgusting garbage in their bags, others let all of the contents be photographed. Takeout boxes, crumpled paper, orange peels, and empty bottles form a bed under the subjects, painting a picture of their different lifestyles in addition to their rubbish. Segal says, "Subjects are photographed surrounded by their trash in a setting that is part nest, part archeological record. We’ve made our bed and in it we…

Dan Winters Takes Timeless Celebrity Portraits (16 Favorites)

Dan Winters Takes Timeless Celebrity Portraits (16 Favorites) | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
Take away all the silly props, put away all the flamboyant clothing and create a portrait, a snapshot of a person that will stay with us forever. Dan Winters is a famous photographer who illuminates his subjects to reveal something most of us would often miss. You can read more about his work and his inspirations at the PDN Gallery website. Here are a few of my favorite quotes. "I try to make an image that's interesting and compelling and relatively representational of what the individual looks like. I think that when someone sits for a portrait theyr'e allowing you to make a physical object out of their physical representation. I don't think I go out of my way to be overly flattering. But I do try to be true to the subject." "For me, it's about walking around in life with the intent of capturing moments." “I get up every day and that’s what I do, make photographs, whether I’m being paid to or not. I love it, love it, love it.”

Hansel and Gretel Remade For Vogue - Dec 09 (6 pics)

Hansel and Gretel Remade For Vogue - Dec 09 (6 pics) | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
I'm Famished

If anyone can bring a fairy tale to life, there is no doubt in my mind that it would be Annie Leibowitz. Using elaborate sets and costumes, she recreates the story of Hansel and Gretel. The spread, titled Little Girl & Boy Lost, appears in the December 2009 issue of Vogue. Inspired by Richard Jones's production of the 1893 Engelbert Humperdinck opera, opening December at the Metropolitan Opera, the gorgeous photo shoot even features a surprise guest, Ms. Paparazzi herself (aka Lady Gaga). See if you can spot her. First photo: (above) Brother and sister are home alone with not a morsel to eat. In Vogue's interpretation of the Met's production, which opens December 14, Hansel and Gretel are played by actor Andrew Garfield and model Lily Cole. Far From Home

They venture out to hunt for wild strawberries in the woods, where Gretel's lily-white frock shines against the dark foliage of the Tree-men. Before long, though, they're hopelessly lost. Golden Slumber

Robert DeNiro

Some of Hollywood's most revered celebrities are letting every blemish and wrinkle shine in these photographs by London and New York-based photographer Andy Gotts. Known for his portraits of the stars, Gotts has been photographing celebrities for more than twenty years. He travels alone, bringing along no assistants, stylists, or other distractions, and captures a raw intimacy in each image due to the time spent with his subjects.
His first book, Degrees, featured more than 100 famous actors and singers and raised about three million pounds for diabetes research. Now, this most recent project iCons will generate funds for Sir Elton John’s AIDS charity. From Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Clint Eastwood to 1940’s leading lady Lauren Bacall, Gotts has turned our favorite memories of Hollywood into legendary photographs. He holds many honors, his work has been published nationally and internationally, and The National Portrait Gallery holds a selection of his photographs…

Surreal Self-Portraits by a 16-Year-Old

Surreal Self-Portraits by a 16-Year-Old | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
Wow, to have this much talent at 16! Duisburg, Germany-based Phillip Schumacher is a young teenager who, for the past two years, has been placing himself and his friends in beautifully magical scenes. Inspired by famous Flickr photographers like Alex Stoddard, Rosie Hardy and Brooke Shaden among others, Schumacher had this to say about them: "I think they are just all incredibly talented and their pictures are so inspiring! People like this make me create more and more pictures because I want to become as good as them! They are basically the artists I would like to become one day."

Schumacher tells us that the most rewarding idea he's had so far is his Cosmic Love series. It not only brought him the most attention, it also became what people associate him with.

Look through this selection of his self-portraits and you'll feel as though you've booked a one way ticket into a strange and surreal dream. What an imagination.

"Pretty wardrobe + location + pretty model = 5% of the the photo, in my opinion. Without a palpable connection with the viewer a shot falls short of the mark. It is a deal breaker for me..." -Jaime Ibarra

Compelling Portraits of People Who Abandoned Civilization for Life in the Wilderness

Compelling Portraits of People Who Abandoned Civilization for Life in the Wilderness | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, most people can only dream about escaping to the quiet isolation of the rural countryside. French photographer Antoine Bruy, however, turned that dream into a reality when he hitchhiked across Europe from 2010 to 2013, wandering through remote mountain regions without any fixed destination or route in mind. Along the way, he met several individuals who had willingly abandoned life in the city and retreated deep into the wilderness, sacrificing modern comforts for greater autonomy and freedom.
In his series Scrublands, Bruy documents the homes and faces of the people he encountered, by chance, that live far away from civilization. Staying with these individuals for days or even weeks at a time, the photographer helped them farm land and raise livestock while learning more about their self-sufficient lifestyles. Once teachers, students, and engineers, these people now rely on makeshift buildings, recovered materials, and agriculture in order to…

Voyeuristic Bird's Eye Views of People Inside Their Homes

Voyeuristic Bird's Eye Views of People Inside Their Homes | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
When you are alone, do you behave differently compared to when you are out in public? French photographer Florian Beaudenon explores this idea in the series Instant Life. The project offers a voyeuristic peek into the homes and lives of different men, women, and families, and invites viewers to inspect belongings and behaviors from a bird's-eye-view.
Each setting reveals the everyday behavior that often takes place behind closed doors. Subjects are seen doing mundane things like trying on multiple pairs of shoes, taking a bath, or just reading a book, yet the activities offer a fascinating insight into each person's character.
Through interesting perspective, Beaudenon creates an uneasy sensation that the subjects may look up at any moment and catch viewers peering in on the intimate scenes. The artist says, "We must enjoy of every moment. The Instant Life project was created after this idea. Photography intruding, not without a bit of voyeurism, on the life of unknown persons. They…

Couples Passionately Kissing by Ben Lamberty

Couples Passionately Kissing by Ben Lamberty | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
Though at first glance these photos look like stills from the strangers kissing video that went viral, in actuality this series was created even before that video was shot. Last summer, photographer Ben Lamberty took a spontaneous photo of a couple kissing and the photo turned out to be, in his words, "so cool" that he decided he needed to make a series out of it. The photos would eventually land in the December 2013 issue of a German publication called Zeit Magazine. The passionate images of two people kissing were paired with lines from famous songs like this one from The Beatles circa 1967: "All you need is love, all you need is love, all you need is love, love, love is all you need."

After he first came up with the concept, Ben asked his friends to volunteer. Some of them were real couples while others were just good friends. As you can tell, a few of them dabbled in modeling but, according to the photographer, "all of them are creative characters." Ben sat back as a quiet…

Self-Portraits Explore Fragmented Distortions of Reality

Self-Portraits Explore Fragmented Distortions of Reality | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
Created by photographer Cornelia Hediger, Doppelgänger (which means "double walker" in German) and Doppelgänger II are a beautiful exploration of the self in relation to the world around us. Inspired by the many fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, the Switzerland-based artist pieces together multiple images into a grid to create slightly misaligned realities and distortions.
The oddly sized and exaggerated components produce compelling narratives about body image, self-worth, and our conscious versus our unconscious thoughts. Hediger steps in front of the camera to perform as her own subject. To build the backgrounds, she often transforms her apartment with fresh paint or wallpaper, new lighting, and intriguing accessories. She can spend anywhere from eight hours to three days shooting a project, and then she non-digitally assembles the fragmented pieces together. In doing so, Hediger creates visually-split personalities set within uncomfortable scenarios.

Before becoming a fashion photographer, Randall Slavin was a struggling actor who worked at a gas station across the street from a headshot photography studio. After watching beautiful women go in and out of the studio all day, he wandered over there and struck up a friendship with the owner. He didn’t know anything about photography but was promptly hired to shoot actors' headshots. Over time, he built an amazing portfolio, photos of actors in and around LA. Some of these actors have since become Oscar winners. Each of Slavin's shots are full of drama and intensity and they all have a cinematographic feel to them. Added: Remarkably, we got in touch with Slavin after we wrote this post to ask him a few questions. Read that inspiring interview, below.

Deliberate Accidents of People Consumed by Material Goods

Deliberate Accidents of People Consumed by Material Goods | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
In this whimsical collection of contrived falls, Italian photographer Sandro Giordoan (@__remmidemmi), has taken his own personal experience and created a narrative with a meaningful message. Last summer, a small bicycle accident left him with a 30% loss of the functions in his right hand because he didn't let go of the object he was holding when trying to catch himself during the fall. Separately, one of the artist's friends broke a leg when trying to save a smartphone from falling into water.
The hilarious collection, In Extremis (bodies with no regret), is both wildly entertaining and a bit disconcerting. Giordoan narrows in on a culture that is extremely consumed by material goods, so much so that they are willing to risk their own personal safety to protect the items they are holding during massive tumbles. "I immediately felt the urgency to capture the moment of impact," explains Giordoan. "I wanted to talk about obsessions, neurosis, and frailties of our times through my…
