Interview: Extraordinary Up-Close Photos of Kenyan Wildlife by Anup Shah

The black and white photographs bring us up close and personal with the wide range of animals found on the reserve—from elephants and zebras to tigers and crocodiles. Having grown up in Kenya, Shah brings a unique sensibility to this fragile world, which translate to photographs that demonstrate the unflinching power and beauty of these wild animals. Shah's new book, The Mara, contains 100 original black and white photographs. "The images tell stories of anger, death, hope, arrivals and departures," writes Natural History Museum Publishing, "and provide a startlingly fresh and rarely seen view of the cycle of life in this world famous reserve. " We were lucky enough to make contact with Shah. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what first drew you toward wildlife photography?

Paul Clemence. Chema Madoz el genio de la fotografía conceptual. Dicen que una imagen vale más que mil palabras, y con ésta única frase como introducción , creo que efectivamente las palabras sobran al ver estas fotografias de uno de mis fotógrafos preferidos que es Chema Madoz: "La fotografía, como sabemos, no es algo verdadero.

Chema Madoz el genio de la fotografía conceptual.

Es una ilusión de la realidad con la cual creamos nuestro propio mundo privado. " Se podría decir que cuando me empezé a interesar por la fotografía uno de mis primeros decubrimientos fue él , y quizás por ello le tenga tanta estima. Sus fotos son una mezcla de sencillez con grandeza. Me gustan sobre todo por su originalidad. . * Actualizado :Mi especial homenaja a Chema Madoz lo podéis ver en ésta foto (haz click sobre las letras en azul para que te lleve directamente al link) que además consiguió un explore en flickr:) Andreas Gursky at C4 Contemporary- Artist Profile & Biography.

Prior to the 1990s, Gursky did not produce his works on a digital platform, though now openly discusses his dependence on computers to edit and enhance his pictures, as well as for the purpose of increasing the apparent scope of his subject in terms of size. .Critic Calvin Tomkins described the experience of confronting one of Gursky's large scale prints, "The first time I saw photographs by Andreas Gursky... I had the disorienting sensation that something was happening—happening to me, I suppose, although it felt more generalized than that.

Melancolía: manera romántica de estar triste Leyendo un libro, un día, de repente, hallé un ejemplo de melancolía: Un hombre que callaba y sonreía, muriéndose de sed junto a una fuente: Tú nunca estás sólo, siempre te va a acompañar la soledad Podemos imaginarlo todo, predecirlo todo, salvo hasta dónde podemos hundirnos.

Que estas son de una belleza extrema pero tu humilde clase social no te permite revelarlas. Esos 100.000 negativos se venden en una subasta a un estudiante que cree poderlos usar como ayuda en un libro sobre su barrio en el que está trabajando, pero los desestima y sube algunos a internet para venderlos. Se fija en ellos Allan Sekula, crítico y historiador de fotografía y rápidamente se hace con ellos porque son todo un tesoro.
