About me - Fikry Botros Photography is my passion. In the many photography related classes I have taken over the years, it never ceased to amaze me how we use basically the same tools: cameras and lenses, to produce such an infinite variety of images. The struggle, or the goal, of most photographers is to find their niche, a combination of what they are good at and what they naturally like. In my own experience, this took a while, and a lot of photos, to arrive at. As an engineer, I was predictably attracted to architecture, buildings, landscape and the like. Las hermanas Brown. Por Nicholas Nixon "By luck, I stumbled upon your site, and of course I wanted to try it out. I went on to deposit $500 on OneTwoTrade, then opened 5 positions and won 4. Took out the $500 and still have the profit of $288 to trade with. This is a great system you got there Sir, I definitely owe you one."
STEVEN KLEIN STUDIO In between songs, Gaga offered some playful, theatrical banter in her best whispery-baby Marilyn Monroe impression. She made sure to point out her genuine pleasure in seeing in the balcony collaborator Tony Bennett (with whom she’s releasing an album of duets with later this year), and director/photographer Steven Klein, who was behind her “Alejandro” video. She climbed a rose-draped ladder to Tony at one point and later remarked on how moving it was to see her dad and Steven Klein meet and hug backstage. Being the theatrical, bawdy star she is, she ended her very genuine anecdote on Klein and her father by saying “Daddy, he’s the nice man who took that pretty picture of my pussy!”

INFO - Airyka Rockefeller Airyka Rockefeller is from a small island in the Pacific Northwest. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in New York with a BA in cultural studies and photography, and received her MFA from California College of the Arts in 2005. Rockefeller's art works turn attention to repurposed landscapes, worldly metamorphosis, and the paradigms between the symbolic and factual value of things and places. Long fascinated by the popular tendency to monumentalize particular landscapes, architectures or objects, while determining others as insignificant, her work investigates the overlooked and vestigial on an intimate scale.
Annie Liebovitz Born in 1949 in Waterbury, Connecticut, Annie Leibovitz enrolled in the San Francisco Art Institute intent on studying painting. It was not until she traveled to Japan with her mother the summer after her sophomore year that she discovered her interest in taking photographs. When she returned to San Francisco that fall, she began taking night classes in photography. Time spent on a kibbutz in Israel allowed her to hone her skills further. In 1970 Leibovitz approached Jann Wenner, founding editor of Rolling Stone, which he’d recently launched and was operating out of San Francisco. E.J. BELLOCQ: "'Bellocq Epoque' - Nan Goldin on Photographer E.J. Bellocq" (1997) By Nan Goldin, Originally Published in ArtForum, May, 1997 Late one Berlin night in 1991, a famous German fashion photographer invited me and two friends to join him for a trip to Bel Ami, his favorite brothel in the Grunewald. The presence of a woman as a customer created a ripple of surprise, but the photographer, being a regular and popular visitor, put them at ease. Glossy prints of his published photographs of the house, group portraits of the “girls” who worked there and the pimp (“host”), were hanging on the walls. Though the setting was a German villa, the props were familiar: patterned wallpaper, heart-shaped velvet pillows, mirrors, chandeliers, gilded Turkish figurines holding red lamps, pink fleshy faux-Baroque nude paintings.
33 Perfectly Timed Photos You may be the best photographer in the world, but sometimes all it takes to take the best shot is being in the right place at the right moment. It doesn’t even matter if you take it with your cell or high-end DSLR. Often, you won’t even notice you made an incredible picture until you come home and transfer your photos to a computer. Robert Frank Robert Frank's fine flatulent black joke on American politics can be read as either farce or anguished protest. It is possible that Frank himself was not sure which he meant. In 1956, he was still a relative newcomer to the United States, and his basic reaction might well have been one of dumb amazement as he investigated the gaudy insanities and strangely touching contradictions of American culture. A similar shock has been experienced by many others who have been suddenly transplanted as adults to this exotic soil. A few artists and intellectuals have even managed to turn the experience to their creative advantage, if their direction had not yet been too firmly set, as though a new country might be a substitute for being born again. It is tempting to believe that Frank's emergence in the fifties as a photographer of profound originality was a measure of his success in meeting on artistic grounds the very difficult challenge of a radically new culture.

Paul McDonough: “New York City 1968-1972” documents the quirky nature of New York street photography (PHOTOS). © Paul McDonough. Courtesy Sasha Wolf Gallery, New York City. Photographer Paul McDonough has a knack for catching passing, off-kilter incongruities on the New York City streets. He arrived in the city in 1967 and started taking photographs of unique moments happening around him; the New York City 1968-1972 series is said to be his first as a photographer.
