: Russian avant-gardist Alexander Rodchenko claimed that photography could ‘leave Rubens behind’. Through patterns and unusual viewpoints, his compositions make the viewer see familiar scenes in a different light, observes Craig Raine Check it out here.
: I officially approved zine two today! The zine has 34 photos all shot with my lomo LC+A. Printed on 80-lb cover stock paper which really gives it a flip book feel. The photos I consider to be my travel snapshots. My dad said it well as he looked through the mocked up zine last […]
So, the other day I cranked through 145 websites in about 3 hours for the consultation demo and then I had a conversation with a magazine art director friend about how we look at photographers websites in obviously different ways (design vs. photo) and I realized something: Design and layout has a powerful effect on […]
: Richard Barnes has three interesting projects on his website. I absolutely love Murmur, which I originally came across on Mrs. Deane. It reminds me of Nicolai Howalt and Trine Søndergaard’s series Dying Birds, but I like how Barnes has captured the mysterious patterns that the birds make. Check it out here.
: I flew up to the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead to do the last bit of filming for Picture This, a Channel 4 series about six young photographers competing for the chance to mount a solo exhibition (I was one of three judges). The winner was Elizabeth Gordon, a former alcoholic who […]
: For years she has photographed the rich and famous but kept her own life strictly private. Now a new film opens the shutter on Annie Leibovitz’s drug addiction, love life and delayed motherhood. Andrew Johnson report Check it out here. Via PDNPulse.
Why can’t you make it through the checkout line without flipping through page after page of pregnant celebs in Us magazine? Alison Jackson knows why. In her work, she photographs the people you think you recognize doing what you really want to see. And in the process, she’s questioning our shared desire to get personal […]
: If Beverly Hills has a Main Street, it’s Rodeo Drive—three blocks of palm trees and designer boutiques with names like Armani, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton. Impossibly expensive cars—Ferraris, Rolls-Royces, Lamborghinis—cruise down the strip. Paparazzi stalk red carpets and limousines. From the balcony of a brand new Chanel Boutique one evening this past December, Minneapolis […]
: I chose not to photograph people smiling in portraits. I too am always searching to reveal the inner silence within a subject. Posed smiling is a learned reaction and does not provide insight to subject’s being. Instead it blocks the viewer from studying a vulnerable face. I ask a lot of the people I […]

: Even if you’ve never heard his name, chances are you know the work of David Rubinger. For roughly six decades he worked as a Time-Life photographer, documenting Israel’s tumultuous history. Some of his photographs, such as the 1967 shot of Israeli paratroopers reaching the Western Wall, have become icons. In 1997 he was awarded […]
Over the past couple of months, I spent quite a bit of time thinking about this, and I now want to offer portfolio reviews. Needless to say, I have no idea how much interest there is in something like that, so this is going to be quite interesting. Also with time there might be modifications […]
: Sensitive, reflective, intimate. These are not words normally associated with the oeuvre of Pablo Bartholomew, best known for his stark World Press Photo award-winning images: morphine addicts shooting heroin up gnarled forearms in cheap Paharganj hotels, and the glassy-eyed dead baby that came to symbolise the Bhopal gas tragedy in 1984. But it was […]
: Lots of buzz online about the termination of editor Dave Seanor over this cover, which refers to a thoughtlessly stupid remark by golf anchor Kelly Tighman. It’s worth noting that the controversy over this cover is inextricably wrapped up in its conceptual quality. The insipid stock image brings nothing to the package that isn’t […]
: Photography is a medium that feels natural to me. Once you place the camera in front of the eye, it constructs the world. The camera foregrounds the power of temporal and spatial affectivity as seen and thought. In fact, you could say that what I do is create frameworks. I frame the space within […]
