Early Womanhood

“I want to investigate the identity of young Norwegian girls. In a world that is even tougher than when I grew up, young women and men are formed by ideals that could be perceived as inhuman. I want to meet these girls without resorting to clichés and without prejudice.

The New Talent award went to Alessandra Meniconzi (Switzerland), while 15-year-old Samuel Fisch (USA) has been named Young Travel Photographer of the Year.

What the brain draws from: Art and neuroscience - CNN.com

What the brain draws from: Art and neuroscience - CNN.com | Through the Lense | Scoop.it

Pablo Picasso once said, "We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies."If we didn't buy in to the "lie" of art, there would obviously be no galleries or exhibitions, no art history textbooks or curators; there would not have been cave paintings or Egyptian statues or Picasso himself. Yet, we seem to agree as a species that it's possible to recognize familiar things in art and that art can be pleasing.

To explain why, look no further than the brain.

The human brain is wired in such a way that we can make sense of lines, colors and patterns on a flat canvas. Artists throughout human history have figured out ways to create illusions such as depth and brightness that aren't actually there but make works of art seem somehow more real.

And while individual tastes are varied and have cultural influences, the brain also seems to respond especially strongly to certain artistic conventions that mimic what we see in nature.

X-Pro1 - Architecture | Luc de Schepper on Digital Photography Review

X-Pro1 - Architecture | Luc de Schepper on Digital Photography Review | Through the Lense | Scoop.it


Yesterday I had the opportunity to lend a friend's X-Pro1 during a walk around Rotterdam/Holland. As a X100 owner I noticed that the X-Pro1 is a better camera. The sensor is better (X100's is already very good) and overall operation is faster. And that 35mm f1.4 lens is really excellent! Here are 3 images from yesterday. These images were shot in RAW and post processed.

Fabulous low Light Photography

Fabulous low Light Photography | Through the Lense | Scoop.it

Taking photographs during nights or low light situations can be lots of fun captured by specialized equipment such as SLR cameras, tripods, cable releases and flashguns. After sunset, as the light that passes brings a special quality to our everyday world magically transforms all buildings, fireworks and the northern lights becoming popular subjects. For this post, we have compiled a collection of striking examples of low light photography.

10 of the Most Famous Photo Hoaxes Through History - Flavorwire

10 of the Most Famous Photo Hoaxes Through History - Flavorwire | Through the Lense | Scoop.it

In the modern age, it’s both incredibly easy to fake photographs (everyone and their mother is a Photoshop expert these days) and relatively difficult to actually pass them off as legitimate for any length of time (no one can hide on the Internet). But it wasn’t always that way. We recently discovered the awesome website Museum of Hoaxes, and we’ve been indulging in the history of fake photographs, from the first faked photo in the 1830s to much more recent attempts. Click through to check out a few of the most famous photo hoaxes in history, and let us know if we missed your favorite (or if you’re a true believer) in the comments.

Photographer Erin Trieb's Homecoming Project

Photographer Erin Trieb's Homecoming Project | Through the Lense | Scoop.it

Erin Trieb hopes her photos of soldiers can help save some of them from the horrors that follow too many of them home from war—and that followed her, too.

One hundred and fifty-four American soldiers committed suicide in the first 155 days of 2012—claiming 50 percent more lives than combat fatalities in Afghanistan over the same span. PTSD is often the culprit or a contributor, and it’s what galvanized Trieb to tell the stories of the troops who suffer—because she also believes she suffered from it herself.

How a Photographer Created Images of Fireworks Unlike Any You've Ever Seen

How a Photographer Created Images of Fireworks Unlike Any You've Ever Seen | Through the Lense | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, David Johnson found himself at the International Fireworks Show in Ottawa, Canada. Johnson, being a photographer, wanted to capture images of the proceedings. Being a photographer, though, he also couldn't resist tinkering a bit with the explosive images before him. When Spain's delegation began its show, Johnson decided to try an experiment: He took long exposures, then adjusted his focus -- in the middle of the shot.

The resulting images, which I first saw on the blog This Is Colossal, are mesmerizing. Fireworks, their familiarity made less so by their resemblance to ordinary images. Ordinary images, made less ordinary by the fact that, in this case, they're actually fireworks.
