A Short Way From Here

I know you all are sick of me apologising for being a bad blogger so I’m not going to :) Instead, I’m going to let you look at my new book!
It’s a photobook called “A Short Way From Here” and it’s published on Blurb books. This is the result of a photographic project on the seascape and documenting it in an unfamiliar way.
Hope you like it :)

Summertime Madness (Photoshoots I’ve loved #24)

This week it’s an editorial entitled “Summertime Madness”, which was styled by David Nyiri. Nyiri is stylist extraordinaire, he has styled shoots for everyone from Marie Claire to Vodafone. This shoot looks like the pages of a fashion editor‘s sketchbook, with annotations in the corners of each page. This creates a juxtaposition with the toughness of the model, her clothes and the childish writing at the top of each photo. It celebrates youth and urban culture with vibrant colours and young models with youthful energy in each photograph.

Corpus – Alejandra Figueroa – Photoshoots I’ve loved #22

This week it’s “Corpus” by Alejandra Figueroa. I was given this book for my birthday and I’m absolutely in love with it.

Alejandra Figueroa was born in Mexico but moved to Paris in 1992. Her work is mainly concerned with sculpture, stained glass and architecture. She was commissioned to photograph the statues of the world’s greatest musuems.
This almost-A3-sized hardback book is a study of the human form. It is the fruit of several years of labour. It features abstract imagery of the beauty of the nude figure; parts of bodies: hands, feet, parts of faces. The images are presented in such a way that the viewer thinks they are viewing real nudes, flesh doesn’t look like stone. In this way, Figeroa acts as sort of an “anti” Medusa figure with her camera: instead of turning people to stone with it, she is turning stone, human. This book is a beautiful monograph of fine-art abstract imagery.

Sarah’s 21st aka my first professional shoot!

This past Saturday, I photographed my friend Sarah’s 21st birthday in the Grand Central bar. It was great experience for me as I’ve never done anything like this before. It was a really good night, I got to see friends from the media course I did last year that I haven’t seen since and I got to get some experience in club photography. Here are the photos:

Broken Flowers by Jon Shireman (Photoshoots I’ve loved #20)

These photos are from Jon Shireman’s “Broken Flowers“. He soaked the flowers in liquid nitrogen and then shattered them for his 2010 series.

What do you think of them? Is it too weird a concept?

Geraldine Lamanna – Powder Dance (Photoshoots I’ve loved #19)

I’ve been so behind on my blogging schedule at the moment, I’ve been so busy. *Regularly scheduled posting will resume shortly* (haha). Anyway, apologies and bad jokes aside, this week I’m going to talk about “Powder Dance” by Geraldine Lamanna. This series of photographs is amazing. She photographed dancers and used powder to accentuate the power and movement of the dance itself. Lamanna coated a dance instructor and her students with powder and let them show their moves to the camera. The resulting photographs are supposed to show “echoes” of movement. Compositionally, these photographs are perfect, the composition draws you in to the middle of the frame, to the dancer’s face. The lighting is great, spotlights illuminate the dancers and the powder separately so the viewer can see both equally well.ImageImageImageImageImage

Birthday Girls (photoshoots I’ve loved #18)

Apologies for not posting on Friday, I was mega busy over the weekend and just completely forgot. This week in this series, it’s an editorial from “W” magazine in Korea entitled “Birthday Girls.” Photographed by Hong Jang Hyun, the girls all wear colourful wigs and pastel dresses from Louis Vuitton’s spring 2012 collection. The set designs are reminiscent of Tim Walker or David LeCappelle. (which is probably why I liked this so much!)ImageImageImageImageImageImage

What do you think of this? Is all the colour “too much”?

Moon Games (Photoshoot’s I’ve loved #17)

This week it’s Laurent Lavader’s playful, creative images of a person “playing” with the moon, entitled “Moon Games”. These are awesome. I’ve never seen anything like them before. They show the moon as the main focal point in the images, with a silhouette of a person in various poses, using the moon as prop. ImageImageImageImageImage

Photoshoots I’ve loved #16

This week it’s Janne Parviainen’s images of rooms light-painted (is that even a word? Let me know in the comments…) with one LED light. These are amazing, they are all done in-camera, with no post-processing at all. Doing what he calls “Light typography”, he traces over the room’s surfaces with an LED while the camera’s shutter is open (which is what light painting is, essentially ;)). This images wouldn’t look out of place in the Tron universe.

What do you think of them? Are they too much work for the result they give?
