Rainbow Sunsets and Breezy Glamour: 9 Seductive New Photo Books Maidan – Portraits from the Black SquareBy Anastasia Taylor-Lind GOST Books Left: Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Illia, age 18, protestor from Kiev, February 9, 2014. Right: Anastasia Taylor-Lind, Ira, age 50, Mourner from Kyiv, February 23, 2014. In February, English/Swedish photographer Anastasia Taylor-Lind traveled to Kiev to document the swelling crowds protesting the Ukrainian government’s refusal to establish closer relations with Europe, and brought with her a portable portrait studio. The images she made in the weeks leading up to President Yanukovych’s flight isolate participants against a black square, framing them apart from the larger drama. Her cast is divided into two camps: mostly male fighters who wear motorcycle or green army helmets with their puffy winter coats, and mourners, young and old women who carry tulips and roses to symbolize the hundreds killed.

Photography and Encaustic By: Jill Enfield The encaustic process when used in photography refers to applying hot beeswax over a photographic image. This wax can be pigmented with color or remain white or creamy beige and it can give the image an intriguing surface and density. In the world of alternative photography, anything old is new again. Sometimes, it seems that photographers who are interested in traditional processes get into a friendly contest on who is using the most authentic technique or who has the most spider webs on his classic, collectible lens. If this is the contest, I can finally pull ahead! Powerlines and Countryside, © 2009 Jill Skupin Burkholder The basic material used in encaustic work is encaustic medium that is a combination of beeswax and Damar resin. The simplest techniques require an electric cooking skillet with a temperature control, a paintbrush and a heat gun from your local paint store. What is a photoencaustic art piece?

Solargraphy Once you have your cameras loaded and light-tight, you need to figure out where you are going to place them. Ideally, you want to have a clear view of the sun as it moves across the sky, but interesting effects can be made when cameras are placed behind other objects. You could point your can generally at the area where the sun sets, turning it slightly in the direction of where the sun just came from. There are a few things to consider before placing your cameras. - In today's world, people are easily alarmed by cylindrical objects taped to buildings, lampposts, etc My suggestions would be to keep your cameras as well hidden as possible, or at least out of reach. However you choose to place it, make sure the camera cannot move around relative to what you're attaching it to; less movement means better pictures! Don't forget to remove the tape from the pinhole after you secure your camera!

Expired Photo Materials Find New Life in Contemporary Photography “I woke up one day and thought, ‘I should have been a conservator,’” says photographer Alison Rossiter. “I thought, ‘Things are disappearing, and I want to know about them.’” That was in 2003, and the silver gelatin photo materials Rossiter had used since the 1970s were beginning to disappear. “It looked to me like a graphite drawing,” Rossiter says in her Manhattan studio. Rossiter began hunting for expired paper online, collecting boxes of forgotten brands with exotic names such as Gravalux and Velox. Rossiter titled each sheet with the brand of the paper as well as the date it expired and the date she developed it, describing a finite span of time that alludes to the looming end-date of the silver gelatin process itself. Rossiter is one of a growing number of artists using what’s known as analog photography—photographs made using light-sensitive paper and film—as their subject, rather than as simply the means of reproducing an image.
