Avedon was the epitome of the modern photographer – a charming, sophisticated man-about-town and a photographer who was able to cross photographic genres. It did not matter where he was, which format he chose to work with or who his subject was, the image would be an Avedon image.

posted on October 26th 2012 in Photography with 1 Comments

Dave Engledow is creating an unconventional scrapbook for his daughter, Alice Bee. When the little girl — now a toddler — grows up she’ll have a complete photographic record of herself in highly precarious situations. But most likely, the images will bring up memories that are sweet, not scary — because Alice stars in “World’s Best Father“, a tongue-in-cheek photo series meant to poke fun at the type of father Engledow does not want to be.

Flash forward. Albania, 2012. Enver Hoxha is not here anymore; the bombing he was expecting didn’t happened and most of the structures created while Hoxha’s days of glory are in their right places, as testimonials of a not-nice-to-remember past.

People vs. Places or how to work with double exposures

posted on October 19th 2012 in Photography with 0 Comments

Photographers Timothy Burkhart and Stephanie Bassos have worked together to create this double exposure project. Both of them expose the same roll of film: one shoots people, the other one shoots places.

Since neither of them knows where or what the other has shot, there’s a big amount of pure chance into how each picture will come out. Even with that, sometimes the images manage to come together in some particularly spectacular ways.
