For his first American exhibition, the German photographer Marc Ohrem-Leclef has chosen to address a myth. But these aren’t the cowboys and Indians of the American West; these photographs were taken in Australia and India.
Il est rare qu'un photographe de 36 ans se voit offrir une rétrospective. Tout comme il est rare qu'une monographie parvienne à dépasser le statut de simple compilation de travaux déjà connus. Pieter Hugo réussit l'un comme l'autre.
Daughter of a silent film actress, Ruth Orkin had an early interest in film movies and was the first messenger girl at MGM Studios! "Orkin wanted to become a cinematographer; however, women were not allowed to join the union. It was not until the 1950′s when she and her husband Morris Engel made their first independent feature film "Little Fugitive." Truffaut credited the film with helping to start the French New Wave."
My pictures are painstakingly created frame by frame on 35mm film. I develop the whole film, scan it, then piece the final image together on the computer, making a large contact sheet. It’s only when the completed filmstrips are laid side by side that the final image appears. The pictures usually take months to complete, as each frame is obsessively taken in sequence. No pasting together after the event, no cheating in Photoshop! If I make a mistake or take a frame out of place I start the film again from the beginning.
The New Aesthetic is an art movement obsessed with the otherness of computer vision and information processing. But Ian Bogost asks: why stop at the unfathomability of the computer's experience when there are toaster pastries to contemplate?

These black and white street photographs predates his better known Surrealism photograph project titled “The Dream Collector”. At this time, Tress’s methodology had fewer rules than others creating street photography, as he frequently would act as a director to arrange his subjects for specific compositions, in a sense foretelling of the work yet to come.
Christian Patterson’s Redheaded Peckerwood made it onto so many “best of 2011” lists that it was by far the most popular book last year. A body of amazing depth and sophistication, it is a shining example of what the contemporary photobook can do.

At first I felt shy about introducing myself to Bert, but eventually I did walk over to meet him and he greeted me warmly. Not long after our first meeting I asked Bert if he would work with me on a photographic project and soon I began to learn more about aspects of his life, including his experience living through WWII in Britain, his work as a general engineer, and his relationship to the flora and fauna outside his building.
This is the first North American exhibition for the Dutch photographer, winner of the 2011 World Press Photo. With its roaming documentary style, Metropolis calls attention to the populations of the world’s overcrowded cities.
One of the continual dances that I see in photography is the interplay between the big picture and the small details. The title of this portfolio, Memories of India, tells us the big picture. In the photograph above, however, it is the small details that attract our attention — and make this a successful photograph.
I had a great chat with Susana Paiva of the ‘Portfolio Project‘ recently and am happy to announce that, along with photographers Mário Pires and Magda Fernandes she has set up the ‘Photo Book Club Lisbon‘ which will have it’s innaugral meeting on the 4th May.
