Blog / Daniel Ribar | Photography Now | Scoop.it
I like Daniel Ribar’s photographs for their symmetry and simplicity. Ribar’s work is clean and attentive; the color theory is close to flawless and the subjects are precise.

Photographer Tom Craig's best shot

Photographer Tom Craig's best shot | Photography Now | Scoop.it

It set me thinking of a Georges Seurat painting. I don't know whether these men were unemployed, had been thrown out of their houses by their wives or were just hanging out. They sat in their undies on torn-up cardboard boxes playing chess and drinking odd concoctions out of plastic bottles.

Conscientious Extended | How to make a photobook

Conscientious Extended | How to make a photobook | Photography Now | Scoop.it

My headline is slight disingenuous: There actually is no simple recipe for photobook making. If you asked ten people about how to make a photobook, you’d probably end up with ten different answers. That said, from what I can tell, most photobook makers seem to agree on quite a few things. So I thought I’d throw my own thoughts into the mix. I hope that some people might find them useful.

The Finns are “delightfully quirky” according to photographer Martin Parr – who has shared his work in an exhibition with Nokia.

Travelling between Helsinki in the south and Oulu in the north, Parr tried to photograph the essence of a country that’s captivated him since the early 1990s when he was a professor at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki.

Part III: Books without words | Photography Now | Scoop.it

As a writer, I’ve never really been interested in photography per se, but in the work of certain artists who happen to use photography (among other things) and whom I had discovered purely by accident a little more than five years ago.

Conscientious | All Hail Cindy Sherman

“I will never cease to be amazed by how much consensus I find among New York’s leading art critics as they all hail and salute the same things, or for that matter, as they all gang up and bash the same things […]. The unanimity bothers me; I wish someone would offer some counterpoint to the prevailing view, bring some fresh air into the dialogue.”

Right, now there are about 750 pictures in the edit for ‘The Quest’ for iPad, spread across 20 different chapters. That is a lot of material. Much more than for a book and way much more than for a publication in a magazine.
