Interview | Artist Hajra Waheed On “Sea Change”, her India Debut Solo

Interview | Artist Hajra Waheed On “Sea Change”, her India Debut Solo | Photography Now | Scoop.it

"As children, most of us spent a large amount of time getting acquainted with our imagined realities. We developed grand vocabularies around these alternate places and people and narratives, and at times, even invited our friends in to explore these intimate spaces with us. I suppose in some ways I never stopped developing stories from that very place. Of course, my narratives have matured (at least I would hope so!) and are deeply influenced by my many lived experiences traversing borders, or rather, living among them. So many of us who live along these lines (either by choice or force) do go missing or disappear at times, just to re-emerge later. I am fascinated by those who — yes, dare to journey across the borders they once built for themselves. It takes courage to do so, to leave what you know in order to better understand what you don’t. “Sea Change” begins to explore the narratives around this very migration — one that is as much physical as it is psychological and/or emotional."

Conscientious | e or eek?

Late last year, I bought an iPad mini1. It seems fairly obvious that tablet computers will play a large role in photography (in whatever form), and I wanted to start exploring the options. I’ve since been looking at photography magazine apps, say, some of which I like, while others still have a lot of work to do. Ignoring details here (details are for another day), I’ve been interested in what a magazine would look like on a tablet computer. I’ve also been looking at books (mind you, not photobooks - I don’t “own” any ephotobooks, yet). I’m really not all that interested in an ideological debate about all things “e.”

‘Roman Vishniac Rediscovered’: A Great Photographer’s Lost World Revealed

‘Roman Vishniac Rediscovered’: A Great Photographer’s Lost World Revealed | Photography Now | Scoop.it

At this late date, in an age when seemingly every significant photograph of the past 150 years has been anthologized and analyzed, how many major 20th-century photographers can possibly remain under the radar of both the general public and photography aficionados? How many discoveries of unknown, genuinely great photographers can we possibly expect?

The picture above was posted on my daughter Lucy's fb page by her friend and photographer Frances Carter who'd made the photograph. I came across the photograph by chance and was intrigued by its dynamic. It seemed to me to have many of the conceptual and visual elements that make an image work.

Gene Lemuel: Milla Jovovich - Le Journal de la Photographie

Gene Lemuel: Milla Jovovich - Le Journal de la Photographie | Photography Now | Scoop.it

  At Milla's Hollywood villa legendary photographer Gene Lemuel captured portraits of Milla Jovovich for Flaunt magazine. I had the unique experience of being a witness.  I came into a room where I was greeted by Milla she was getting ready for her close up. I must say even without make up she is stunning. At that moment I thought it right when they say "she really is put on this earth to punish men with her beauty." After my visit with Milla, I was led to a room where a full wardrobe fit for an empress was laid out by celebrity fashion stylist Jessica Paster which consisted mostly of clothes by Gucci.

Magnum Photos Blog: Decisive Moments 1 | Photography Now | Scoop.it

At the last Magnum annual meeting in Arles, at the end of June, we were looking at portfolios of potential nominees. During the projection of the portfolio of a photographer who had a lot of pictures of meaningless moments, I remarked that I was tired of seeing pictures where there would be no apparent difference if the picture had been taken a second before or a second after.

Conscientious Extended | A Conversation with CPC 2012 Winner Olivia Locher

Conscientious Extended | A Conversation with CPC 2012 Winner Olivia Locher | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Olivia Locher, an extremely prolific photographer, is one of the winners of the 2012 Conscientious Portfolio Competition. Justifying my choice I wrote: “With so much talk about photography being over or dead, we might as well admit that it is, have a jazz funeral, and continue enjoying the medium, now more than ever. I think this is what Olivia Locher is doing with Another Day on Earth, fearlessly unafraid to produce pictures that either conform to or subvert standard conventions. Photography is dead - long live photography!” I spoke with the artist about her approach to photography in the conversation you can find below.

BJP's Ones to Watch in 2013

BJP's Ones to Watch in 2013 | Photography Now | Scoop.it

We start the new year full of optimism, after asking a panel of photographers, publishers, curators, picture editors and critics to select the photographers they believe will make their mark on the wider international photographic community in 2013.

BJP's editors Simon Bainbridge, Olivier Laurent and Diane Smyth selected, from that list of more than 200 names, 20 photographers to watch in 2013, rejecting those we felt were a little too established, but also keeping in a few that may well be widely known but are still on the verge of something big.

Mario Pires's insight:

We should never stop looking for different perspectives.

REVIEW: WILLIAM EGGLESTON – “Before Color” (2010) « ASX | AMERICAN SUBURB X | Photography & Culture

REVIEW: WILLIAM EGGLESTON – “Before Color” (2010) « ASX | AMERICAN SUBURB X | Photography & Culture | Photography Now | Scoop.it

William Eggleston is a “Southern” artist.

Without a deeper explanation, this statement itself could mean a few things. If you look at the body of his work on the whole, the majority of it (almost all) is set within the Southern environs of the US… places like Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and Arkansas. Also, he was born in the “South” and still residing there. Surely, that makes him  largely “Southern”. Additionally and importantly, you could look at his work as “Southern” from a standpoint of “feel”… the nuances, the point of view, the character.
