The Romanian Photographer Who Documents Beauty Around The World Is Currently Killing It In India. Nick Knight - Home. Sally Mann: Fotografías imprescindibles. Considerada una de las fotógrafas actuales más reconocidas de los Estados Unidos, Sally Mann (Lexington, Virginia, 1951) no pasa desapercibida, ya que su propuesta artística honesta y en muchas ocasiones arriesgada hacen que la fotografía de Sally sea una verdadera joya. Principalmente conocida en el mundo de la fotografía por (Immediate Family) capturar los momentos de su vida con sus tres hijos durante los veranos de finales de los años ochenta y principios de los noventa cuando no tenían mas de 12 años.

Sally Mann no oculta nada, los juegos, los enfados, las heridas, los sueños y también (aquí viene la polémica) los momentos más íntimos. Según Sally estas fotografías son “naturales a través de los ojos de una madre, que ha visto a sus hijos en todos sus estados” pero para muchos, y principalmente en el país de la libertad y las armas, esto no gustó a la clase conservadora de Estados Unidos.

Ciudad de México, 1967. WLPPR. Compelling Portraits of People Who Abandoned Civilization for Life in the Wilderness. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, most people can only dream about escaping to the quiet isolation of the rural countryside. French photographer Antoine Bruy, however, turned that dream into a reality when he hitchhiked across Europe from 2010 to 2013, wandering through remote mountain regions without any fixed destination or route in mind. Along the way, he met several individuals who had willingly abandoned life in the city and retreated deep into the wilderness, sacrificing modern comforts for greater autonomy and freedom. In his series Scrublands, Bruy documents the homes and faces of the people he encountered, by chance, who live far away from civilization.

Staying with these individuals for days or even weeks at a time, the photographer helped them farm land and raise livestock while learning more about their self-sufficient lifestyles. Bruy's compelling photos capture the idyllic and rustic beauty of living a Walden-esque existence in these secluded, wild environments.

SCOT SOTHERN, EL FOTÓGRAFO DE LOS BAJOS FONDOS ANGELINOS | Revista Yaconic. Me inspiran el arte, la literatura y la política. Encuentro inspiración en las sombras oscuras de la noche donde la mala suerte, los desamparados y los drogadictos apenas sobreviven de una noche a otra.

Sus imágenes son expresiones e interpretaciones personales de distintos personajes en entornos urbanos y marginales de Los Ángeles, California, ciudad en la que vive y en donde ha pasado casi toda su vida. Contacté a Scot para hablar de sus andanzas, gustos y salidas —cámara en mano— a la oscuridad angelina. “Mi fotografía siempre ha sido algo espontáneo; hacer retratos que no planeo… He estado haciéndolo durante tanto tiempo que prefiero que sea muy intuitivo: apunto la cámara, la composición y todos los aspectos técnicos caen en su lugar.

“Comencé a visitar prostitutas cuando tenía 15 años. ”Me involucré más con el proyecto, con las mujeres y a veces con los hombres.

Un hombre compra 10.000 negativos no revelados y descubre una de las fotógrafas más importantes del S. XX. Imagínense esto: tal vez el fotógrafo callejero más importante del siglo XX era una niñera que guardaba todo su trabajo para sí misma. Nadie había visto sus fotografías y era una completa desconocida hasta el momento de su muerte. Durante décadas, la obra de Vivian Maier estuvo escondida en las sombras hasta décadas más tarde (en 2007), cuando John Maloof un aficionado a la historia compró una caja llena de negativos que nunca habían sido revelados en una subasta por USD 380. John empezó a revelar los negativos y no pasó mucho tiempo antes de darse cuenta de que no se trataba de instantáneas callejeras ordinarias, eran mucho más que eso. La obra de Maier es particularmente evocadora para los que crecieron en los años 50 y 60, porque según dicen expertos “parecen mirar profundamente en el alma de la época y preservar la experiencia cotidiana de las personas”.

This American Photographer's Captivating Portraits Of Sadhus In Varanasi Will Truly Amaze You. This American Photographer’s Captivating Portraits Of Sadhus In Varanasi Will Truly Amaze You Relinquishing worldly possessions and pursuing a life of spirituality and meditation is a fascinating concept. We've all heard of sadhus, spiritual leaders and gurus leading lives wholly devoid of everything we today think are indispensable. New York based photographer Joey L. however was so taken by this idea that he travelled around the world to document the lives of monks and sadhus. He recently documented some mesmerizing aspects of the sadhus in Varanasi in his journey. It came out in the form of stunning portraits & a captivating film called 'Beyond' which filmmaker Cale Glendening shot during his visit.

Photoshop Wizard Turns His Wildest Dreams Into Crazy Photo Manipulations. Tons of photographers use Photoshop to insert new elements into their photographs, but not all of them can create the crazy and mind-bending images that Buenos Aires-based art director and digital artist Martin De Pasquale does. De Pasquale creates wild new impossible realities by combining multiple images or by creating new effects on Photoshop.

Some of his images are simply silly, while others offer morbid commentary on the impermanence and weakness of his own body. His images may seem like magic, but he does indeed reveal his secrets – in his behind-the-scenes video, he shows us how he used Photoshop to create one of these images.

In the first split-second that we observe someone, our gaze often snaps directly to their eyes – in an attempt to figure out who they are and what their intentions are. The eyes can often communicate truths about an individual and about their soul that cannot be fathomed by something as inadequate as human language. The guys at santabanta forum has started a search for various historical images where the eyes say it all.

Along with the stories of the people in these images these photos are truly raw and emotional, portraying people at their best and at their worst – joy, hatred, fear, and courage. We added a couple of our own finds to santabanta forum’s list, and you can do this too at the end of our article. 1.

Photographer Recreates Children’s Nightmares From The 60s In Dark And Twisted Images. Most of us have at least one unforgettable childhood dream or nightmare that branded itself permanently into our memories.

These powerful and imaginative childhood dreams were what interested American photographer Arthur Tress when, in the late 1960s and 70s, he created his psychoanalytic “Dream Collector” series of images, which captured children’s nightmares in terrifying detail. According to the artist’s statement, “Dreams or nightmares were collected by conversations with children in schools, streets, or neighbourhood playgrounds. The children would be asked means of acting out their visions or to suggest ways of making them into visual actualities… These inventions often reflect the child’s inner life, his hopes and fears, as well as his symbolic transmutation of the external environment, his home or school, into manageable forms.”

Mesmerizing Interiors Of Iran’s Mosques Captured In Rare Photographs By Mohammad Domiri. Mohammad Domiri, a talented architectural photographer from northern Iran, takes stunning photos of grandiose mosque architecture throughout the Middle East. Middle Eastern architecture is often recognized by its elegantly curved arches and spiraling columns, which feature heavily throughout Domiri’s photos. Many of the historic sites Domiri shoots are decorated with colorful stained-glass windows, geometric decorations and painstakingly detailed mosaics, so he shoots with special wide-angle lenses to make sure that he captures all of these details.

Because they are historic structures, many of these mosques also impose heavy restrictions on photography – making photos like Domiri’s very rare.

Parker was given a beautiful opportunity to turn her camera on her own extended family to document her sister’s adoption of a beautiful baby boy named Sam. The photo series, fittingly named “Blended,” is a perfect example of the unconditional love that a family has for its children, be they adopted or otherwise. “We are so in love with this amazing little man who has brought such joy into our lives. There are so many wonderful and interesting things I am documenting, the power of love, the agonizing wait (and then elation) of adoption, the welcoming of another life into our clan, and what it means to be a biracial family,” explains Parker, who is based near Atlanta, Georgia.

Believe it or not, this is a real place – Wat Rong Khun, better known as the White Temple, is a Buddhist temple in Thailand that looks like it was placed on earth by a god. Though it may have involved divine inspiration, it was in fact designed by a man.

Chalermchai Kositpipat, a Thai artist, designed the temple in 1997. It was almost destroyed by an earthquake in May of this year, but Kositpipat was inspired to rebuild the temple after an outpouring of international support urging him not to give up and let the temple crumble. Admission to many of the buildings has been forbidden until certain structural cracks are repaired, but visitors can still photograph the temples from the outside.
