Lee Jeffries

Lee Jeffries | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it
Lee Jeffries lives in Manchester in the United Kingdom. Close to the professional football circle, this artist starts to photograph sporting events.

 

A chance meeting with a young homeless girl in the streets of London changes his artistic approach forever. Lee Jeffries recalls that, initially, he had stolen a photo from this young homeless girl huddled in a sleeping bag.

 

The photographer knew that the young girl had noticed him but his first reaction was to leave. He says that something made him stay and go and discuss with the homeless girl. His perception about the homeless completely changes. They become the subject of his art. The models in his photographs are homeless people that he has met in Europe and in the United States: «Situations arose, and I made an effort to learn to get to know each of the subjects before asking their permission to do their portrait.» From then onwards, his photographs portray his convictions and his compassion to the world.

Travel to the Czech Republic: Exploring the Country Through Featured Images

Travel to the Czech Republic: Exploring the Country Through Featured Images | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it

If you're looking for a country to take some beautiful images and enjoy some wonderful beer, go to the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic is steeped in history, and, as well as being at the center of several different European cultures, it enjoys both a bustling and popular capital city, and many nore beautiful spots that are off the beaten path. 

Prague, among the places of interest in Prague are the Franz Kafka Cafe, the Prague Astronomical Clock which draws a huge crowd every time it begins to move, and the ST. Vitus Cathedral inside the Prague Castle grounds, a gorgeous example of gothic architecture that's perfect for inventive travel photos.

Kitty Fisher's curator insight, October 10, 2013 10:20 PM

Czech Republic has to be one of those cities, where people for some reason don't think about visiting. With it in the middle mecca for absolutely everything. Missing out on this walk about around all the cathedrals and history would be a horrible wish. Take a look at the gallery that Picsart has presented on their site.

My Moscow | Photographer : Igor Moukhin

My Moscow | Photographer : Igor Moukhin | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it

Igor Vladimirovich Moukhin (И́горь Влади́мирович Му́хин), is a Soviet and Russian photographer. Since 1989, he has been working as an independent photographer. In the mid-1990s, he worked on documentary projects about Moscow and provincial Russia. 

 

Igor is reputed one of the most important contemporary Russian photographers. He is based in Moscow and besides continuing his practice as a photographer, he lectures at Rodchenko School of Photography.
Using his individual and familiar style Moukhin reconstructs and explores reality of  post-soviet society in his native city Moscow. The images expose public and private life of various strata of citizens, different kinds of political, public or artistic groups and subcultures. 

 

This way, the book My Moscow (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Igor-Moukhin-My-Moscow-Photographs/dp/9053307672) covers the great epoch of changes and course of life of numerous generations of Moscovites that were faced with this twenty-five years period of changes and hope.
The book also contains a very personal interview by Irina Meglinskaya with Igor Moukhin and an essay by the famous Russian modern writer Zakhar Prilepin.

Terror Beat of Acid | Photos : Khaled Hasan

Terror Beat of Acid | Photos : Khaled Hasan | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it
Khaled Hasan is a Documentary Photographer. He has been awarded as 2008 All Roads Photography Program of National Geographic Society for his Documentary. Living Stone is one of his long term Project.

 

From Khaled Hasan’s work, “Terror Beat of Acid.”  In January 2010, 23-year-old Nasrina’s husband attacked her with acid. He was not satisfied with the dowry her parents paid. After two years of marriage, he wanted more. Her mother, who sells rice cakes to earn a living, refused to pay more. Her husband beat her up till she fainted, and when she was unconscious he threw acid on her face, neck and hands. Acid melts the tissues and even dissolves bones. Often eyes and ears are permanently damaged. Many victims have to undergo dozens of reconstructive surgeries to lead an independent life. No funding is available for cosmetic surgery, and most victims are from rural areas and can never afford expensive treatments. As such they are scarred for life and very few ever get married.

Drape | Photographer: Eva Stenram

Drape | Photographer: Eva Stenram | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it

Stenram’s most current series, Drape, uses vintage pin-up photographs as its source material. The women in these photographs are posed in interior domestic sets in front of curtains or drapes, offering a glimpse into intimate space. In Stenram’s versions of these images, the curtains are extended to partially obscure the women.

 

The background envelopes the focal point and the foreground slips into the background. The curtain vacillates between striptease-drape and blind or shutter, reinforcing its role as a barrier between public and private. The resulting image makes no attempt to look ‘real’; rather, it submits to a cut-and-paste collage aesthetic whose ultimate referent is the act of photography itself.

Black and white | Photographer: Hengki Koentjoro | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it

Amazing black and white photographs by Indonesian photographer Hengki Koentjoro.

 

Hengki Koentjoro was born in March 24, 1963 in Semarang, central java, Indonesia. He acquired his knowledge of multimedia production at brooks institute of photography, Santa Barbara, California, USA. Majoring in video production with minoring in fine art of photography, he graduated in 1991.

Photography is not just a way of expressing his most inner soul but also creating a window to the world where through his pictures the unseen and the unspoken can be grasped. Driven by the desire to explore the mystical beauty of nature, he develops his sense and sensibility through the elements of fine art photography. His freedom of expression is more reflected in the elaboration and exploration of black and white.

Photography can never be separated from the aspects of making the common things unusual, welcoming the unexpected, indulging and embracing ourselves with the joy of photography as well as believing that anything is possible.

Hengki now lives in Jakarta, Indonesia with his wife and three children.

Sacred Ink | Photographer: Cedric Arnold

Sacred Ink | Photographer: Cedric Arnold | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it

The sacred tattoos in Thailand are much more than just an art form, and with a culture deeply rooted in superstition and spirituality, such tattoos are believed to have magical and healing powers. Thai men and also women have their sacred tattoos done at Buddhist temples, for protection against evil spirits, and as good luck charms.

Cedric Arnold's website tells that these sacred tattoos can be scripts based on ancient Khmer, and the original Buddhist Pali, along with figures and mythical creatures. Using large-format and Polaroid cameras, formal black-and-white portraits were made of boxers, monks, construction workers, policemen, soldiers, taxi drivers, shipyards workers, a shaman, and tattoo masters.

Yoga performers | Photographer: Tomasz Gudzowaty

Yoga performers | Photographer: Tomasz Gudzowaty | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it

There are many interpretations of yoga, both in India and in the western world. In the Vedic religious tradition, yoga is seen as a pathway to achieving spiritual enlightenment through physical training and as a way of living in harmony with your body and nature. It is also an accepted form of gymnastics and is often used as therapy. Yoga, with its Indian roots stretching back 2000 years, is not typically associated with sport since it does not involve any competition. However, every three years, pilgrims, spiritual masters, and yogis travel to India for the Kumbh Mela Hindu feast. Different schools and sects meet to display their achievements in the practice of yoga and pranayama (control over the breath).

 

It’s the biggest gathering of people in the world. One of Shiva’s manifestations, the god Nataraja, is the patron saint of the event. Over time, the rules of competition were formally organized and most recently, yoga asana has been included in modern sport yoga. Yogis who participate in the contest are separated into age groups and perform in singles, pairs, or groups. But even with all these formal rules and regulations, the technical aspect does not eclipse the spiritual. The official rules of the Yoga Federation of India state that “while performing yoga positions the contestant should show his/her happiness and spirituality.” This helps keep contestants in touch with teachings of the ancient Hindu masters, who regarded happiness as a task well within the reach of all humans.

Chineses | Photos Liu Zheng 刘铮

Chineses | Photos Liu Zheng 刘铮 | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it

Liu Zheng est un photographe chinois né en 1969 dans le comté de Wuqiang, province de Hebei. Il passa son enfance dans la ville minière de Datong (province de Shanxi), avant de vivre et de travailler à Beijing.

En 1994, Liu Zheng commença de photographier des moments de vie dans lesquels des personnages chinois typiques ont été rencontrés dans des situations extrêmes et souvent inattendues. La série The Chinese tire le portrait d'une société en butte aux contradictions entre la culture traditionnelle et la modernisation. Elle présente un large échantillonnage de la société et montre les riches, les pauvres, les transsexuels, les mineurs, les acteurs d'opéra, aussi bien que les figures de cire des musées historiques.

De 1991 à 1997, Zheng a travaillé comme reporter pour le Workers’ Daily, un des journeaux chinois les plus lus, dans l'optique de montrer les liens historiques entre la propagande politique et l'idéologie communiste, plutôt que de viser les rapports de la photographie avec la vérité. Il commença de travailler sur le thème des Chinois à un moment de changements explosifs et de développement de l'art contemporain, catalysé par les réformes en cours. Dans ce contexte, Zheng utilise la photographie pour construire une fausse réalité. Les éclairages et les poses de ses photographies au format carré semblent un peu naïfs mais en réalité la mise en scène coexiste avec les éléments spontanés dans toute cette série.

Influencée à la fois par les œuvres de Diane Arbus et d'August Sander, la série The Chinese montre au spectateur une étude personnalisée de la culture chinoise, concentrée sur les aspects psychologiques les plus sombres. Un mélange de dure réalité et de romantisme, d'engagement et de détachement, tente de reconstituer l’histoire des Chinois par ce processus.

Body building | Photographer: Bess Adler

Body building | Photographer: Bess Adler | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it

"In this series, I document a community whose members devote massive energy to strengthening and displaying their bodies. Rigorous and exciting competitions determine who has the most perfect physique. Line up, walk, display, flex, and judge. These men and women march across a well-lit stage, stop midway and expose sculpted bodies, the product of perseverance and hard labor.

 

Bodybuilders use weightlifting, diet, tanning, and oils to pursue highly specific results. Their appearance might seem exaggerated or strange to people from the outside world, but within the bodybuilding community, inflated biceps and over-sized chests represent beauty. However, with this allure comes a demand for lifestyle sacrifices and arduous workouts.

 

Training for competitions is a year-long process and almost a full-time job. Bodybuilders work out six or seven days of the week for three to four hours a day. Contestants follow extreme and highly-regimented diets prior and subsequent to the competitions. Cooking and grocery shopping are often time-consuming, as some routines call for eight meals a day. Bodybuilders struggle to balance their life, which includes training, jobs, families, and sleep. Regardless, many participants relish the experience of being onstage and setting new goals for themselves at every competition. They describe competitions as euphoric. Even though performing and having one’s body scrutinized can be nerve-wracking, the attention bodybuilders receive is highly gratifying, especially for the winner.

 

As a photographer, I am interested in capturing the tradition of bodybuilding, and the competitive, robust nature of the shows. My series aims to bring viewers closer to this insular and ritualistic community. In the process, I hope to raise questions about the sacrifices we all make in pursuing our ideals." (Bess Adler, photographer)

The Masai Typology | Travel photographer: Nicolas Lotsos

The Masai Typology | Travel photographer: Nicolas Lotsos | Photographie numérique en noir & blanc | Scoop.it
The Masai Typology is one of the many gorgeous photo galleries of Africa by photographer Nicolas Lotsos. I'm not much of an African wildlife aficionado, but his fine art galleries of photographs of the handsome Masai, of Zanzibar, or of the African slums and townships are lovely exemplars of monochromatic imagery. Nicolas Lotsos is  a fine art photographer (and in my view, a travel photographer as well) and a basketball agent. He co-runs a sports agency representing some of the top sports figures in Europe. He has been a photographer since he was 16 years old, and specializes in photographs of wild life and nature.

 

He also won an impressive number of awards, to include Gold Winner at the 2012 Grand Prix de la Photographie, Outstanding Achievement at the Spider Award 2012, the 2012 Veolia Wildlife Photographer Award, including two awards by the Travel Photographer Of The Year (TPOTY), amongst others.

A Nilotic group in East Africa, next to the Indian Ocean, the Masai society is patriarchal, and elder men decide most major matters for each group. A full body of oral law covers many aspects of behaviour. The Masai are monotheistic, worshipping a single deity.
