These 100-Year-Old Aerial Photos Were Taken by Pigeons | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

Getty Museum acquires fourteen photographs by famed fashion photographer Hiro

Getty Museum acquires fourteen photographs by famed fashion photographer Hiro | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Getty Museum announced today the acquisition of fourteen photographs by famed fashion photographer Hiro (Y. Hiro Wakabayashi), comprising work he created while on assignment for Harper’s Bazaar, French Vogue and Mirabella from the 1960s–1990s. Prominently known in the 1960s and 1970s for his editorial work in Harper’s Bazaar during a time when editors strove to fill their magazines with great photographs rather than ones that simply highlighted a product, Hiro’s compositions, which feature unusual juxtapositions, have changed the face of the genre and continue to influence photographers today.

It's Nice That : Hungarian photographer/art director Mate Moro intrigues us with his Filled Field project | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

Even for a control freak like myself, there’s something tremendously enjoyable about being befuddled on seeing a creative project. Hungarian photographer/art director Mate Moro has a portfolio full of intriguing projects, none more so that Filled Field, a series of unlikely or surprising shots saturated in a becalming rich red.
