It has been bugging me for a while now, there is just something that is missing from photography. From my personal work to the majority of photographers out there. I’m talking about the photos on your feeds, be it personal to commercial. It has been bugging me and I finally found out what it is, what is missing from photography, is stories.

How We Came to Know His Fall

In the midst of chaos, a sense of order often emerges. It finds itself in the company of calamity: as an escape plan, an oxygen mask, a…

That is, until an image came in from Richard Drew, a photographer for the Associated Press. A man in a simple white shirt and black pant ensemble, with one leg bent, in the upper third. His frame symmetrically dividing the North and South tower. He was falling, arms by his side, seemingly resigned to his fate.

Photographers on Photographers: Carolyn Russo on Isabel Corthier

For the entire month of August, photographers will be interviewing photographers–sharing image makers who have inspired them, who they are curious about, whose work has impacted them in some way. I am so grateful to all the participants for their efforts,

It was in 2011 at the Lishui Photo Festival in China, where I first met Isabel Corthier. I was drawn to her black and white portraits and her positive energy that comes with a wonderful Belgian-French accent and carefree laugh. It was obvious how anyone would be at ease in front of her camera. She had just received the Golden Award from the China International Digital Photography Art Exhibition Contest for her photographs in Africa. She told me her plans to sell off her worldly possessions in Belgium, for an upcoming move to Africa, and I thought she was courageous. We haven’t seen each other since parting ways in China, but we have stayed in touch via the internet and are now working together for her photographs to appear in an upcoming Smithsonian exhibition.
