To take a break from my rambles and rants, I’m going to share with you a few sites that I recently read or become a fan of their photographic work. First on the list is Christian Vium, an anthropologist. photographer whose base is in Copenhagen, Denmark. Vium is working on several long-term documentaries related to migration, nomadism, human rights, youth and conflict. No matter if the photo is in color or in bw, Vium has a way to convey the atmosphere, temperature and sound through his photographs. You can view his portfolio here.
Anne McAulay is my second admiration. She is known for capturing emotional anecdotes of city life in the metro, museums and streets, during the day or night. Her photos have the power to pull the viewer’s into the frames and live within the moments that she captured. McAulay’s work appears in many Russian magazines, exhibitions, workshops and galleries.
When I stumble across Umberto Verdoliva‘s photo essays, I see bits of humor from Elliott Erwitt, the poetic composition from Ernst Haas, the art of storytelling from Magnum’s photographer Nicolas Tikhomiroff, along with the precise arrangement of Henri Cartier-Bresson. Verdolina’s fine art documents of the street life make me want to throw my cameras away and step away from photography.
From our WordPress neighbor, Miss Klara passionately captures the streets of Berlin on films and bakes them in her own darkroom. Each of her images depicts a new day on the old streets of Berlin, Vienna and elsewhere. You will find tons of well composed images on her Klara’s Street blog.
Do you know that the New Yorker’s photographers spent their last six months experimenting the Instagram sharing service? That’s right. According to PetaPixel, “instead of having its public relations department handle photo sharing, they’re putting it directly in then hands of the photographers creating the images.” If this become successful for the magazine, will the New Yorker’s PR department be trimmed down?
