Photography. Lensblr - Photographers on Tumblr. 10 Norwegian Photographers You Should Know. «НОВОЕ БРИТАНСКОЕ КИНО»: В поисках света: Джейн Боун. Великобритания 2014, 90 мин. Режиссёр Люк Додд, Майкл Уайт документальный Элегический портрет классика британской фотографии 89-летняя Джейн Баун - Модильяни британского фотопортрета: в ее строгий, но сочувственный объектив за последние 65 лет попало огромное количество замечательных людей из всех сфер британской - и не только - жизни. Миниатюрная, типично английская по внешности и манерам женщина с камерой всю жизнь проработала фотокором еженедельника The Observer - и все эти годы оставалась верной раз и навсегда выбранному портретному стилю: спонтанно срежиссированному, черно-белому крупному плану в интерьере. Режиссерам картины удалось тактично и увлекательно проследить зарождение гуманистического «фотовзгляда» своей героини в самой биографии Баун, выросшей сиротой при живой матери.

Majestic Views of Pacific Northwest Landscapes by Photographer Griffin Lamb. Griffin Lamb is a 19-year-old freelance photographer based out of Seattle, Washington. On weekends Lamb goes on adventures, hiking and backpacking in the great outdoors with his friends. Over the years, he has built up quite an impressive portfolio of breathtaking landscape photographs that capture the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Lamb tells us that he shoots with a Canon 6D and a 17-40mm f/4 lens at f/8 “in order to get as much in focus as possible.”

Resulting photos are processed in Lightroom 5 and VSCO Film (usually the 01 series). Here are some of the landscape photographs found in Lamb’s portfolio: Lamb is currently studying in college, but says he plans to “live a life on the road” once he graduates. You can follow along with Lamb’s work through his website, blog, and Instagram. (H/T Fubiz) Image credit: Photographs by Griffin Lamb and used with permission. @mr007 Instagram photos. Earlier.

With a portfolio bursting with fashion, editorial and portrait photography, it’s no surprise Tung Walsh’s client list is constantly growing having shot for big-wigs including A.P.C, Dolce and Gabbana, BON and W magazine among others.

Capturing a mixture of models and famous folk, his style is cool, edgy and setting the standard in achieving that originality and freshness many photographers can only imitate. Seductive, bold and alluring, Tung’s images feel incredibly current with a colour palette seeped in rich, contrasting tones that emphasise every drape of fabric and whisp of unkempt hair. His work is a great example of how taking pictures of beautiful people doesn’t have to be predictable, instead it can be exciting and provocative.

This Drone-on-a-Leash is Hoping to Become the Aerial Photographer's Best Friend. Aerial photography drones are more ubiquitous than ever. But as wonderful as they are for documenting the world around us from a bird’s-eye view, they inherently come with a number of safety and regulatory issues.

Solving these woes in a creative and somewhat strange way is Sergei Lupashin, who has created a clever little device called the Fotokite. Essentially, he put the camera drone on a leash. In the six-and-a-half minute video above, Lupashin explains the events that inspired the creation of the drone, why he sees drones as a vital part of our world and, most intriguingly, what this device actual is and how it works. Below is one of the first test flights shared by the Fotokite team: While this product is yet to hit the market for consumers, the Fotokite team say they’re working hard to do just that.

Steve Schofield Photographer. Resource Magazine Beards VS. Cancer - No Shave November Is Coming - Resource Magazine. With Halloween candy ready to be handed out and temperatures cooling down, the month of October is officially coming to an end. Well don’t you worry my friends, the month of November has some pretty big things ahead. November is not just the month of turkey and gravy but a time to kick off cancer awareness! That is right fellas and ladies it is almost that time for No- Shave November! No- Shave November is a non-profit organization devoted to growing awareness and funds to help fight disease through the American Cancer Society. The goal for No- Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which so many cancer patients lose.

Getting involved is simple, you can participate individually or make a team (hint: your studio crew always works great!) By growing a beard, mustache, or if feeling really adventurous, for you ladies, embracing those leg hairs can do the trick. © Justin Muir So grab your photo crew, sign up and start growing! Vivian Maier: A Photographer Found and a New Exhibit. Vivian Maier obsessively documented the world around her from the 1950s to 1990s. This month, Vivian Maier: A Photographer Found will be published—the largest collection of her work to date.

On October 30, a new exhibit of her photographs will open at the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York. Though born in the Bronx and raised mostly in France, Maier spent much of her adult life as a nanny in Chicago. Photography was never her profession, but rather a largely secret passion. At her first nannying job in Chicago, she developed her photographs in a bathroom. Over the years, Maier took to hoarding her negatives, amassing tens of thousands of undeveloped snapshots, which she kept in storage lockers. Maier died in Chicago in 2009, essentially anonymous as an artist and photographer. Below, several “lifetime” prints, printed before Maier’s death, soon on view at the Howard Greenberg Gallery. © Vivian Maier/Maloof Collection circa 1952-1956 circa 1960-1976 circa 1970-1977 circa 1956-1966. 2014 OUTDOOR Urban Art Festival in Rome. At the recent private preview of the OUTDOOR Urban Art Festival in Rome, we were approached by two men in their 60s while we stood outside of the massive gates of an abandoned house in San Lorenzo.

While uninvited, they were welcomed by curator Francesco Dobrovich, and we embarked on a tour together in which the men expressed an incredible knowledge of the Roman street art scene, from where to find emerging artists to discussing the previous edition of the festival itself. This demonstration made clear that the festival is a very present institution in town. But what is the role of Rome in this realm? “Rome does not have a leading role in the landscape of street art," says Dobrovich, "[That role is] played by New York and Paris. This is the fifth edition of OUTDOOR, so the curators felt they had to make some kind of change—an update in the formula.

As a result, visitors feel out of time and out of space. The conceptual characteristics of Dot Dot Dot are recognized all over the world. Sidetracked Magazine: Adventure Travel. Spirited travelers know the value of immersing oneself in the unknown. Getting lost is a real possibility, if not a given. Dubious roadside food will no doubt be consumed alongside the most memorable, high-quality meals.

UK-based Sidetracked Magazine is an ode to the intrepid journeys that place inspiration over itinerary—highlighting some of the most offbeat locales and the enlightening ways to experience them.

Whether it's bikepacking across the Hardangervidda in Norway or skiing in Afghanistan, Sidetracked inspires adventure with honest accounts and awe-inspiring imagery. Sidetracked founder, producer and designer John Summerton has been working in web design for over 12 years, and telling inspiring stories of adventure and exploration has long been part of his to-do list. The first edition was released earlier in 2014 and sold out within a few weeks. NEWS — NICK GENTRY. Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao’s Immaculate and Impossible New York. If you look closely enough, you may just find yourself in one of Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao’s incredible photographs of New York City. The photographer has spent the last decade trekking across the city’s five boroughs and methodically photographing the diverse architecture and personalities using both a large and medium format camera.

A new show, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao’s New York: Assembled Realities, which opens tomorrow at the Museum of the City of New York, features over 40 of the large-scale panoramic photographs showcasing the beauty and grit of the urban landscape. Although Liao’s view of the city is immaculate, it is also completely impossible. He has captured images of spaces that no longer exist physically (like Shea Stadium and 5 Pointz) but also spaces that never actually existed at all—at least not in the way he presents them. “New York City is the most photographed city in the world and there are too many good photographs already made,” he says.

Expand Expand. Seven Designers of the Future at La Rinascente. Each year during Milan Design week, SaloneSatellite is the area of Salone del Mobile devoted to emerging designers and schools. This is one of the true hot-spots—the place to find the future of industrial and furniture design. For the second year Italy’s oldest department store, La Rinascente, has partnered with SaloneSatellite to put into production a selection of the seven best works, chosen from the 650 under-35 designers who took part in the 2014 edition. The prototypes we saw back in April are now real objects, for sale throughout the holidays from the Design Supermarket of Milan’s flagship store. “Design, Innovation & Craftsmanship” is the theme that has inspired this year’s choices. For this reason, each selected design uses both traditional production techniques and materials along with digital manufacturing and industrial processes.

French designer Arturo Erbsman’s "Water Lamps" are inspired by natural processes in everyday life. iWear – Wearable Apple Device by Sunfer Ho. The Apple iWear With the Apple Watch announcement, many an inspirational designs in concept Apple wearables have been dashed. The real thing is sleek and very Jony Ive, however the battery life and longevity is still questionable.

The iWear came in as a refreshing approach that now questions the possibility of making an iPad-esque wearable. No more watch … let’s have a look… Designer: Sunfer Ho. Photography and the Feelings of Others: From Mirroring Emotions to the Theory of Mind. Photography is powerful because we can place ourselves into the perspective of those we see in an image. Whether it’s street photography, photojournalism or portraiture, we use photography to understand ourselves in relation to people around us. Think of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s Behind the Gare Saint-Lazare, Nick Ut’s Napalm Girl or Richard Avedon’s portrait of Marilyn Monroe. These iconic images capture intent, desire, suffering, pain, ambivalence, and invoke our ability to identify with those in the frame. Napalm Girl by Nick Ut (left) and Marilyn Monroe by Richard Avedon (right) Our ability to identify with and imagine someone else’s point of view is deeply ingrained into the architecture of our brain. To understand how photographs activate the aforementioned brain network, it’s first necessary to deconstruct emotional processing into simpler components.

Photographer Rachel Sussman Journeys Around the Globe in Search of the Oldest Living Organisms. La Llareta #0308-2B31 (2,000+ years old; Atacama Desert, Chile) What looks like moss covering rocks is actually a very dense, flowering shrub that happens to be a relative of parsley, living in the extremely high elevations of the Atacama Desert. Dead Huon Pine adjacent to living population segment #1211-3609 (10,500 years old, Mount Read, Tasmania) Fire destroyed much of this clonal colony of Huon Pines (as seen in this photograph) on Mount Read, Tasmania, but a substantial portion of it survived.

The age of the colony was discovered by carbon dating ancient pollen found at the bottom of a nearby lakebed, which was genetically matched to the living colony. For The Oldest Living Things in the World, Brooklyn-based photographer Rachel Sussman traveled to all seven earthly continents in search of the planet’s most resilient living organisms. When compared to the unfathomable lifespans of these ancestral bodies, the reality of human condition becomes both unavoidable and irrelevant.
