Photographing Past Stereotype – The New York Times

In 2015, the Spanish-Belgian photographer Cristina De Middel posed herself an obvious but underasked question. In most photographic projects about sex work, it is the faces and bodies of women we see: their strength, weakness, courage and suffering. Where are the men? De Middel wanted to interview men who had paid for sex and photograph them in the kinds of hotel rooms to which they would take female sex workers. So she put an ad in Extra and O Dia, two local newspapers in Rio de Janeiro. She was astonished by the volume of response: More than 100 men showed interest.

Wistful Photos Inspired by Memories of Growing Up in Sweden – Feature Shoot

When Simon Kerola was a kid growing up in a Stockholm suburb, his father took him on adventures to beautiful and mysterious places. “I remember one time specifically when I had just started taking photos,” he tells me. “I wanted to capture the golden hour for the first time. He woke me up really early and had already prepared coffee and a couple of sandwiches. He drove me out in the middle of nowhere.

Charles H. Traub: Taradiddle | LENSCRATCH

Charles H. Traub sees the world with a particular sense of humor and irony that reminds us of our messy humanity. His photographs are tonic for a world that has gotten way too serious. Fortunately for the last 20 years, he has his camera ready when odd juxtapositions present themselves, moments too surreal to be real, but based in the truths of the street. This collection of “photographic wanderings” from around the globe, with a particular eye toward serendipity, is now a book, Taradiddle, published by Damiani Editore. In viewing this collection of photographs, I am reminded of the importance of examining the absurd split second moments that can only be captured if one is looking. And Charles has a legacy of looking–in fact, this is his sixteenth publication, but he also a significant legacy of supporting photographic education, well evidenced in his bio. Each time I visit his website, which is often, I am inspired by someone has lead a spectacular photographic life and manages to continue to see the world with curiosity, humor, compassion, and joy.
