The article Is Street Photography Killing Itself? generated a really solid discussion and I was pleased to see a wide range of perspectives, including those that completely disagreed with me! The article also resulted in a number of submissions of street photography and I am pleased to introduce the first, today. I have waited a few weeks […]
By Job Honig I had thought of writing this guest post for a while — as a kind of response to Tom’s essay on street photography. I have struggled with all the issues he mentioned for some years now; how to create meaning and avoid the pitfalls; how to add something to what is already […]
Ladies and gentlemen, today we are showcasing the work of Aaron C. Greenman. His work could be described as a mixture of street photography and reportage, spanning a broad range of locations and subjects. You can find a wide selection of work on his website, which is linked below. Please note that he has not […]
Today, we have three photographs from Mikael Siirilä, shot on film, printed in the darkroom and then scanned. I’m always reminded of how much work is involved in digitising analogue work that exists just fine without it! It’s perhaps also ironic that we are here, on a digital platform, hearing about very personal work and the intimacy […]
Today we have the work of Alvin Ho in Reader Showcase. He’s shooting 6×6 film on a Russian Twin-Lens Reflex (TLR) camera, which looks like this. Using one involves staring down into a wait level finder and confusing bystanders. Name & Online Presence: Alvin Ho (http://www.alvin-ho.com/ http://instagram.com/shootingcomma) About the Photographs: A series exploring the transient, […]
It’s great to see more people are making lith prints than I had expected! Here we have the work of Ivan Bernal Palli, who is working with medium format film and wet printing. I miss the smell of fixer, but I don’t miss the late nights of red illuminated madness! In the case of Lith, development […]
Today we have a collection of seven digitally captured B&W photographs shot in several West Coast states, by Glenn Schultes. Name and Online Presence: Glenn Schultes About the Photographs: All taken in Western USA. I went on a self-drive holiday in April last year and I tried to shoot in the style of the 1920-1950’s […]
Here we have three photographs by Johann Bottos made from medium format film negatives. They’re his first lith prints – a process I personally love (aside from the waiting that is). Lith printing is not for the faint hearted, with paper development times that can exceed half an hour (in darkness), although more normally they’re […]
A collection of tastefully photographed colour and B&W nudes by Terry Wyse (NSFW). Well, I guess it depends where you work, but just to be sure… 😉
It gives me great pleasure to introduce the work of Michael Meadows, who is a regular reader of TPF! Name & Online Presence: Michael Meadows; http://michaelmeadows.photoshelter.com About the Photographs: The photographs are from a small collection of photos on my website that I call “Small Figures, in situ”. They each show one or more people that […]
Ladies and Gentlemen, here are seven B&W photographs, by Ben Evans. As you will see below, comments/critique are welcome. Name & Online Presence: Ben Evans – www.EnglishPhotographer.com, www.BarcelonaPhotographyCourses.com and @HolisticPhotographer on Instagram About the Photographs: I like to use the lower key of the monochrome range of tones to express an alternative worldview. About the Photographer: […]
Name & Online Presence: Vinh Tran (Flikr). About the Photographs: Hanoi Vietnam is where I’m from but I have lived abroad for the last 13 years. It feels both close and foreign to me at the same time. These images are shot in the last two years 2014-2015 during my two short trips there. I […]
It is with pleasure that I present an article by reader Robert Clark. I am going to keep the introduction very simple by quoting from his website: “All of the photographs on this site were taken when wandering around places I have lived in or travelled to. I try to photograph without drawing attention to […]
Its a pleasure to see some hand-printed analogue photographs, after so long out of the darkroom myself. This work is a great example of why some people still prefer to work in the darkroom and a fitting prelude to my forthcoming article/interview with Roman Loranc….
A submission of photographs from regular reader, George – thanks!
