In 1983, and within the confines of small single room of an apartment or house, Italian photographer Guido Guidi undertook what at first glance could be considered a simple exploration of light. Here, in this unfurnished room with its two windows that sit diagonally opposite each other to one corner, Guidi produced a precise body of work — titled, Preganziol 1983 — that Roberta Valtorta describes in his essay “Space, Time, Void” as a “pearl of great price in contemporary Italian photography.”
Although Richard Tuschman enjoys going to the theater, he is slightly more attracted to the sets and lighting than to the drama unfolding onstage.
He was also attracted to the quiet sense of drama found in the paintings of Edward Hopper, and he used them as a launching pad for a personal project he began almost two years ago titled “Hopper Meditations.”
Mario Pires's insight:
I was looking at this series, and wondering how the paintings by Edward Hopper made me think about the interior Dutch paitings of Johanes Vermeer. Does this series mesure up to those two hisotrical sources ?
“Photography allows me to keep secrets. It has also saved my life in times of great suffering as a tool for expression. It has helped shape my identity, understand who I am and what I need to continue to do.”
Daniel Regan is a contemporary artist from the UK currently based in London. In this interview he talks about his most recent series called “Insula” which he hopes to publish as a book soon. The project deals with the struggle between mind and body to achieve equilibrium. For Daniel Regan photography is a medium to “record memories, to express himself in an ambiguous and less tangible way than words, and a feeling of producing something”.
Felix Heyes and Benjamin West, of the collective King Zog’s, came up with the idea to manually collect the first results in Google Image Search for the 21,110 words of the Oxford English Pocket dictionary, as their final project for Saint Martins, the prestigious London art school.
The Gods of copyright are satiated . With the recent judgement calling for AFP and Getty Images to disburse $1,2 million to Mr Morel for copyright infringement, they have been offered reverence. Or have they ?
There are a number of subjects that have been rather marred by the intentions of well-meaning photographers, who in attempting to draw more attention to these topics have had the perverse effect of making them less noticeable.
The 200 photographs in the José Medeiros exhibition Crônicas brasileiras (Brazilian Chronicles), on view at the Instituto Moreira Salles de Poços de Caldas through January 12, 2014, offer a wide-ranging historical account of the country from the 1940s to the 1960s, from the poorest and most oppressed members of society to its most powerful.
The weather had us worried up to the last minute. The end of monsoon season, which lasts well beyond the Water Festival, gave us spectacular thunderstorms and showers that left the air charged with moisture.

L’insensé is a bi-annual, French-language magazine edited by Elizabeth Nora and Vanessa Van Zuylen. Each issue explores the photography of a single country. The focus of the latest issue is China. It is absolutely superb.
As history and our collective experience reveals, so much of a photograph’s meaning is not captured within its frame. What is not confined to the frame is the social environment within which the image was created. This social context can profoundly affect the way we experience and interpret images and shouldn’t be forgotten, particularly with images that are thrust at us by the media. Such images are complimented by thoughtful meditation to balance our initial emotive reaction.
Photographer Carlos Spottorno‘s publication The Pigs won the Photobook Award 2013 from Fotobookfestival, Kassel, Germany, and was short-listed for the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook of the Year Prize.
The Joan of Arc narrative is driven through a study of faces that is at a revolutionary mix of expressionism and off-kilter editing. So it's a conceptual film as well, made up of close-ups that reveal the inner workings of a tortured soul. So the cinematography, the staging, the editing is all ground-breaking. It's incredible. But at the same time it's only a secondary layer. The story comes first and that is what gives the Passion of Joan of Arc its heart and soul, its power to move. And that is what the score addressed so beautifully.
Born in Vienna and trained as a filmmaker in England, Tina Schula‘s photography combines cinematic techniques, portraiture, family stories and political history to create staged narratives of complex human drama.
