After you look through her work…you are left feeling incomplete, each piece has a distinct air of mystery about it. Every shot leaves you thinking…..

At the Le Book Connections event, I met and spoke with tons of agencies about their photographers. I really feel that overall, the agencies approaches to the event were pretty boring. Very few stood out in a see of books. Don’t get me wrong, I saw some incredible talent represented, but no one seemed to break the mold for their photographers. The one agency that actually caught my eye was Julian Richards. I think their photographers are interesting and I like the slightly irreverent way the agency came across. Here are some photos from their website, work by Chris Buck, Nick Meek and Lovely Perkin.
Check out this article with Julian Richards and you’ll see that the personality behind the talent is just as interesting…
I’ve been off traveling for work and pleasure, so I’ve been neglecting my blog duties, but Kari, Todd, Alex and Trevor have done a STELLAR job of posting interesting stuff in my absence (and when I’m here, as well). I have so much to write about, I don’t know where to start.
I’ve been in NYC for the Le Book Connections event. I’ve got lots of photographers and agencies to rant about… but I’ll post in bits to keep you interested. I’ve also got great news to come on NY gallery shows, the lovely Dona and NYC street art.
Before heading to NY, I shot up north to Connecticut to visit my lovely Gram. Here’s me and Gram (obviously on an earlier trip, but we found some great old photos that I couldn’t pass up sharing). Highlight of the Grandma trip was definitely water aerobics at the retirement community!
His dark disneyfied approach to every child’s nightmare caught my eye…we all know how much i hate the amount of photoshopping being done these days. Joshua Hoffine actually produces these little photo shoots like a motion shoot. He uses spotlights instead of strobes to get the effect he wants and uses very little photoshop at all. The end result these darkly entertaining photos.
Kittiwat Unarrom is a Taiwanese artist who has set his sights beyond the usual mediums. He bakes it!! All these severed human body parts are hand made out of bread at his family bakery in Taiwan. MMMMM….
It could be the fact that I’m a student or just my curious/meticulous nature. But when I hear that someone has taken a concept (and instead of hiring models and “faking” what they think would be the ideal way to present it) they actually researched and produced a factual piece of art out of the findings and characters they meet. I am more than stoked.
This book called Phone Sex by the photographer Phillip Toledano is just that. Toledano was interested in the self delusion and fantastical worlds that exist between the caller and the operator so he decided to delve into the taboo world of phone sex. His real and personal interactions with these operators has produced a rather interesting book. Check it out.
Boone Speed does all his own stunts. Portland’s own spirited Boone Speed has been noticed by coolhunting.com His love of climbing is apparent in his work, clearly going the distance for the shot. But it’s not all adventure, his EVANESCENCE work is soft and ethereal and gives him a well rounded aesthetic.
One of her least provocative images…
