The Unflattering Family Album ICP alumni Giulia Bianchi ponders on the need to raise the camera in front of our own normalcy and failures. Tonight, however, I am restless. I sit at the dining-room table; rummage through the refrigerator. What am I looking for? All day long I’ve been scavenging, poking around in rooms and closets, peering at their things, studying them. Introduction In Larry Sultan’s book Pictures from Home, we see family snapshots mixed with texts and pictures that the son took of his parents, a wealthy American couple in their 1970s living in Palm Springs, a suburban town in the West Coast of America, during the Reagan era. Jamie Practicing for the Family, Armonk, Gillian Laub (2003, printed 2009). Other photographers’ family albums can be unsettling or unflattering too. A splinter of ice. Via Roma two months after the flood. As a Photographer Many photographers have turned their lens towards their own families. My father's legs. My sister on a Saturday night. I remember one night.

Portraits of Albanian Women Who Have Lived Their Lives As Men For her project Sworn Virgins of Albania, photographer Jill Peters visited to the mountain villages of northern Albania to capture portraits of “burneshas,” or females who have lived their lives as men for reasons related to their culture and society. Many of the women assumed their male identities from an early age as a way to avoid the old codes that governed the tribal clans, which stated that women were the property of their husbands. Peters explains, The freedom to vote, drive, conduct business, earn money, drink, smoke, swear, own a gun or wear pants was traditionally the exclusive province of men. Thus, Peters wanted to capture this fading tradition before it disappeared forever. I learned that the Burrnesha are well respected within their communities. Wikipedia has an entire article regarding Albanian sworn virgins, in case you’d like to learn more about this practice. Sworn Virgins of Albania by Jill Peters (via Feature Shoot)
Tierney Gearon Photography The Mother Project - Tierney Gearon Photography Exhibition Tierney Gearon’s photographs have been called manipulative, disturbingly ambiguous, even perverse; the London police demanded that the Saatchi Gallery which first showed the offending photos of her young children take the pictures down. Tierney has always maintained she loves her subjects deeply and understands them better than anyone else. How could she not? Buy the book on Amazon.com Excerpt from the Forward to the Book When I first saw the images from Daddy Where are you? “My mother had no boundaries,” she said in speaking of her childhood with her father and three younger brothers in Atlanta, Georgia. Now the mother of four children — Emilee, Michael, Walker, and Grace — Tierney wanted to resurrect parts of her own past, and in doing so she was able to discover her own growth process. “When I started documenting times with my mother, it felt good to be able to express what I was feeling inside and translate it. – Susan M.

Ansel Adams Adams fotografeerde in de jaren 1944-1958 de nationale parken en kreeg daarvoor drie Guggenheim-prijzen. Hierdoor kreeg hij naam als de bekendste natuurfotograaf van Amerika. Hij kan hierbij terecht worden gezien als de opvolger van Timothy O'Sullivan, een bekend natuurfotograaf uit de 19e eeuw. Werken[bewerken] Zijn bekendste werk is waarschijnlijk Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico uit 1941 (Museum of Modern Art, New York). Informatie is uit Adams boek uit 1983: Examples: The Making of 40 Photographs.

The Beautiful Gene : Marina Rosso The Beautiful Gene In September 2011, Cryos International, the world’s biggest sperm bank, stopped accepting red haired donors for a period: demand for them was too low compared to the supply. Single women, who currently represent half of the customer base, tend to select donors based on the search for a “dream prince”. As a provocation to this system, I decided to act as a conservation geneticist who would classify the genetic variation of a species in the first step to preserve its diversity and components.

La violence conjugale vue par six femmes photographes | Journaleuse - Le blog de Margaux Duquesne Hier, vendredi 25 novembre, c’était la journée internationale contre la violence faite aux femmes. Si la parole se libère peu à peu sur le sujet dans les médias, il est très difficile de l’illustrer en photographie. Pourtant, par le passé, six femmes photographes ont levé le voile sur ce tabou. Parfois, le travail de toute une vie. Donna Ferrato est une photojournaliste américaine engagée, durant toute sa carrière, dans la lutte contre les violences conjugales. Son travail documentaire a été réuni dans un livre : « Living with the enemy« , édité en 1992 par la Fondation Aperture. Time est revenu, dans sa sélection des 100 photos les plus influentes du monde, sur cette célèbre image prise en 1982 par la photographe : Au début, la photographe a rencontré ce couple pour réaliser un sujet sur la célébrité. Voir l’épisode consacré à Donna Ferrato de l’excellente série documentaire « Conflict » sur le photojournalisme, produite par Redfitz : Lizzie Sadin / Est-ce ainsi que les femmes vivent ?
Gregory Crewdson | The Photo Art Journey Gregory Crewdson’s large format creations set in American suburbs overflow with suspense and with the use of soundstages, lighting cranes and crews of up to forty people, his productions sound more like Hollywood movie sets. (click images to enlarge, believe me its worth it!) His cinematic images feature subjects in almost suspended animation, capturing the flicker of a moment between the before and the after. Crewdson takes this moment of catatonic confusion and extends it infinitely exploring themes of loneliness, alienation, sadness and desire. Crewdson photographs his subjects in a never-ending state of shock and the combination of their vacant faces with unnatural posing makes them seem more like props than actual people. The images, besides being visually captivating are almost technically flawless with Crewdson using a variety of light sources and styles ranging from diffused to spotlighting to envisage his idea.
