10×10: Japanese Photobooks | eyecurious

10×10: Japanese Photobooks | eyecurious | Photography Now | Scoop.it

For my list, I have tried to select books that represent different facets of Japanese photobook production over the last 60 years (I have managed to get one book from every decade since the 1950s). I should also mention a few obstructions in my selection. Firstly, I was asked not to select books that had already been selected other participants. As I tend to do things at the last minute, I had to make a few changes to my initial selection. Secondly, I have only selected books that I own so I could include some (rather poor quality) photographs of them. So without further ado…

Ken Kitano pushes at the traditions of typographical photography in his visually distinct metaportraits

Ken Kitano pushes at the traditions of typographical photography in his visually distinct metaportraits | Photography Now | Scoop.it

In 1999, Japanese photographer Ken Kitano embarked on his series Our Face, that would push at the traditional boundaries of typological photography. Initially working within his homeland, he produced portraits of distinct social groups; young girls in Harajuku, the office workers of Tokyo, the island people of the south, and the fishermen of the Boso Peninsula; that are divided into six categories: on the road, religion, children, war, race and occupation.

Camera Night At The Ivar at Drkrm Gallery documents a period during the early 80s when The Ivar Theatre in Hollywood opened its doors to photographers Sundays and Tuesdays.

David Schulz – Lone Wolf

David Schulz – Lone Wolf | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Lone Wolf is one in a series of photo-bookworks developed by David Schulz. He investigates various “motifs (which) act as gears that engage the photographs and provide opportunities for (mis) aligning the visual content through the graphic structure of a bookwork. As one observes the ways that photographs operate within a context of graphic motifs that generate meaning, one may also begin to consider how the photographic images engage with one another in terms of verbal experience…. Each work situates itself on a trajectory of literal (or non-literal) reading that also acknowledges both its structural and perceptual processes.

Tao of Photography: Why the heck is he taking a picture of that?

Tao of Photography: Why the heck is he taking a picture of that? | Photography Now | Scoop.it

A while back, I blogged about a series of images I call "Photographing the Photographer" diptychs (or PPDs), consisting of two side-by-side images: one image - taken by my wife - is of yours truly happily snapping away with my camera, oblivious to everything except what is in front of the tripod; the other, is of the "final print" of whatever it was that caught my attention at that instant.

A Photographer’s Account of Bal Thackeray’s Funeral

A Photographer’s Account of Bal Thackeray’s Funeral | Photography Now | Scoop.it

"The crowds were filing in now, small men casting long shadows that reminded me of Vincent Laforet’s aerial photographs of skaters in New York City. I shot some photos on my phone, instagrammed and tweeted those. In a few minutes they went viral. My caption for one picture was ‘This is Not Tahrir Square’, the sarcasm was missed but the photo was widely retweeted."

Creativity and Photography: Partners in Time

“In order to create, we have to stand in that space between what we see in the world, and what we hope for…” Julie Burstein.
Creativity lies at the heart of producing any photographic or artistic work. But it is not limited to these areas, it exists everywhere. I believe that we all have that potential to be creative within us, we just need to find the space and opportunities to allow ourselves to be open and free to play. For my first post on the WPO blog, I want to share some ideas with you about creativity in the hope that you all feel inspired to go forward and create.

Mexico, 1973 (by Elliott Erwitt) | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Elliott Erwitt’s sequences reveal the afterlife of photographs, in cinematic jump cuts that show people or animals kinetically recovering from the poses that the camera inflicts on them. Once a tragedy ends, the human comedy is bound to resume.
