Jens Olof Lasthein

Documentary in panoramic photography format. Jens Olof Lasthein is a Swedish photographer who grew up in Denmark. He concentrated on reportage (for magazines) he gave a specific personal style from his mix of wide panoramic format and use of wide-angle lenses. Both techniques force the photograph to “enter” into the subject, to confront its intimacy…

Juergen Specht

I stopped recently by Juergen Specht web site and was hit by the sheer variety of its subjects. Just go to juergenspecht.com and you will also be hit by many interesting photographs from a German guy who moved to Japan for 12 years and traveled a lot. The picture was taken in Chiba, Japan in…

Simone Lueck

Documentary photography is a genre that has its difficulties (even when it’s not about war photography), but it also has the huge advantage of putting the spectator (and the photograph) in front of real people in their own lives, creating a window between two worlds. Simone Lueck made a two-week trip in Cuba and immediately…

Alan Douglas

I admit being in love with wildlife photography when it draws me to visiting the warm countries. Tropical regions and savannas are perfect for me. But some photographers have a notion of wildlife which pushes them to the cold waters of some oceans and cold countries. That is how I discovered Alan Douglas (somewhat through…

Franco Limosani

When a photographer rides freely in his/her free time, he/she will reach new photographic themes, some that are not in the daily routine. I think about Laurent Baheux who extracted himself from the daily rush of sports photography to join a wildlife photography hobby. Coming from another world (agencies and new documentary), Franco Limosani also…

John Ross

Sometimes, photography is hard to separate from painting and becomes a creative art with its own simplifications. This is what happens with some of the best works of John Ross. From London, he proposes photographs of human bodies seemingly covered with blood (kudos for red paint and nice lighting). But you should also explore the…

Peter Kayafas

The world of Peter Kayafas is mainly in black and white, but it’s our common world: A little out of our cities and their comemrcial malls, empty spaces are still there and contain the marks of our man’s activity. These abandoned marks in the wide empty spaces of North America are seen by Peter Kayafas…

Claes Axstål

So many photographers (even pros) do the same photo again and again, forgetting that they could use their own ingenuity to build their own pictures. Claes Axstål made a giant move when he decided to use Flash to do aerial photography. This made his photographs distinctly different. Nothing technically impossible, just a LOT of work…

Rijasolo

« Miverina » means « to come back ». Rijasolo was born in Madagascar and the « Miverina » series is a move back to rediscover this country. His photography is a kind of black and white photography which touched me deeply. Question : Is there something that could make you stop shooting photographs? Rijasolo’s…

Water in water

Semâ Bekirovic

Look at this photo from Semâ Bekirovic. At first it would seem of limited interest, then you will notice how the photographer included an object in the photography (the wave picture) and how this becomes a photo of “Water in Water.” I really like the way Semâ builds her photos to tell a story. Not…

Christian Del Rosario

It has been a long time since my last portfolio about a pure landscape photographer. When I found Christian Del Rosario, I immediately decided I wanted to give him a space here, because his pictures exploit light at its best. “An overcast sky is the friend of the landscape photographer” seems to be his motto.…

Time-lapse videos of North American cities at night

Photographed between late 2010 and early 2011, Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, Manhattan, and Chicago have been captured by photographer Dominic Boudreault using a Canon 5D Mark II at night. Timelapse – The City Limits from Dominic http://www.dominicboudreault.com/ Mindrelic (another guy from RedBubble) spent a weekin Manhattan shooting time lapses of the city day and night.…

Hiroshima

On August 6, 1945 (we’ll be celebrating this event anniversary in a few days) the Enola Gay US bomber dropped the first atom bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. The images of the deadly effects of this new kind of bomb have been restricted in circulation by the US government, while they were taken and used in…

Sarina Finkelstein

Is there something that could make you stop shooting photographs? Sure, if my camera broke?  (But, I’d just get another.)  Shooting a tangible photograph is just the end product, though.  Photographing is seeing, it is a way of conversing and interacting with the world.  With my work in particular, it’s a license and a reminder…

Samuel Marshall

Samuel Marshall is one of those photographers who go very far to get some original photos. At least, to get photos of places most people do not visit. It means taking some risks with the police and other security people, it means taking some risks. But you get to see some astounding pictures. You will…

Michael Kircher

Often, shooting a photography is a matter of choosing the angle. This is confirmed by the flying heron photograph presented to us by Michael Kircher. Here is a bird shot from high above (while birds tend to appear from below to us, mere mortals). Nevertheless, it is shot against a patch of blue sky (which…

Aurora borealis

Terje Sorgjerd spent a week in the cold nights of Kirkenes and Pas National Park (near Russia) to collect images of the aurora borealis phenomenon before assembling them frame-by-frame into a single video. The Aurora from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.
