The Reflect Project, by Trent Bell, is a photography project that merges large-scale portraits of inmates in the Maine prison system with handwritten letters the convicts composed as if writing to a younger self.
It´s like a photographic journey through a foreign world – a cold, wet world consisting of darkness like after an atomic war. Thirty meters under the earth extends a network of passages, shafts, halls and rooms. It´s a completely autonomous military base…
We are happy to have another collection to show you from a past contributor, Mike Cable.
Mike is a multi award winning and published photographer. His photography offers a new way of looking at the marvelous details we encounter in daily life. Restlessly seeking the unusual in the usual, Cable’s carefully composed shots feature common objects reframed and revisited. Plunging into each object with a freshly born vigor, Cable is concerned with the photograph as a residue of a unique experiential encounter.
Ali Waxman has an extremely interesting ongoing street photography series called “Scenes at the Bus Stop”. It’s a wonderful series depicting a moment in time of diverse people with a common purpose. I find this concept beautiful. Below Ali describes the project and a little about himself.
Today we are proud to introduce you to Alex Greenshpun. Alex’s fine art nature photography has a uniquely magical quality to it. Her photography not only depicts the subject as how she saw it but also as how she connected with it. Below Alex describes her photography and point of view.
Today we would like to introduce you to the beautiful photography of Olga Tremblay. Olga invited us to check out her portfolio of work a few weeks back and we fell in love with it. Olga talks about herself and her work below.
Huub de Waard is a Dutch wildlife photographer who specializes in insect macro photography. He photographs very small invertebrates so close-up that they are transformed into large subjects.
Urban Exploration is the exploring of urban (mostly) abandoned structures. An interesting topic, which you can raise to an art form with the help of photography.
Jane Fulton Alt’s latest photographic series is a commentary on the horrible BP disaster. While not directly affected by the spill, Jane still captures the impact the spill is having on the lives of so many people. Jane’s powerful images not only depict the spill but also is trying to open our eyes to the fact that BP is not the only guilty party here. We all have oil on our hands.
Okay, let’s face it: What I do, and have been doing for a number of years now, could fairly be described as Photo-Escapism. That is to say, as a sensitive human being and therefore only too aware of all of the (seemingly increasing) Sorrow, Pain, Negativity, Inequality, and Environmental Degradation of today’s world, my response is to grab my camera and search out the beauty in some detail of Nature or some idealized scene as a kind of alternative response to despair and modern alienation.
Luca Orsi reached out and invited us to review one of his photography projects, Atmospheres. We were very impressed with what we saw. Luca captures the urban landscape in a very magical/dark way.
