Steve Geer: One-Sixth of a Second – and the poetry of motion

“There is something wonderful about a great photograph of life on the street. I think it’s because we humans are naturally nosy. We like to stare, absorb the details and imagine the facts, but on the street, we don’t have permission to stare. All we get is a glimpse. The great thing about a street photograph is that we have…

Baldwin Lee: Black Americans in the South

When Baldwin Lee first arrived in the south, he did not know what he would photograph. He took a 2,000-mile exploratory trip on the back roads photographing anything that interested him with his 4 x 5-inch view camera. “My subjects included landscapes, cityscapes, close-up details, night studies, interiors of commercial and residential buildings, and portraits of people—white and black, old…
The Life and Times of Alvin Baltrop

The Life and Times of Alvin Baltrop

For 11 obsessive years in 1970s and ’80s, the Bronx-born photographer Alvin Baltrop documented the alternative world that existed in this once-run-down part of the city, capturing cruisers, sun-bathers, fornicators, and friends in that brief moment after the Stonewall riots and before the explosion of the AIDS epidemic. The book presents those photos and others by Baltrop, including many that…

Tim Franco: Illicit Ink

A series of intimate portraits of the underground tattooist community in South Korea shot on paper negatives. An obscure South Korean law makes tattooing technically illegal. Although this does not stop a growing number of underground tattoo parlors to open in people’s home or in hidden rooms, it does pose a challenge for a young generation looking to express themselves…

Urim Hong: City Soleil: a melody of hope

City Soleil is a small village within the Port-au-Prince in Haiti. Unlike its name–City of the Sun–however, it seems as though there is only a glimpse of light remaining. The city has become poor as its history of rebellion and conflict extorted its economic power. What is more, because the people were not able to have proper drainage system, their…

Bryce Morrison: Heavenly Bodies

Heavenly Bodies – the nudes, is a selection from a larger body of work. Throughout the series, each model is told to display themselves in front of the camera in the way they would like to be represented.

Patrick Desgraupes: Unveiled Memories

Patrick Desgraupes: Unveiled Memories

Sometimes Time seems to freeze. A deep sense of harmony and “déjà vu” can fill us. The impression of being inhabited by a sudden level of consciousness. Silence fills the space and becomes palpable. But silence, perhaps, is only the resonance of forgotten memories, and the veil, a manifestation of the persistence of this vision. Patrick Desgraupes is a French…
Hampus Danielsson: Sweet Dreams

Hampus Danielsson: Sweet Dreams

What is a nightmare? Paralyzed by fear in the middle of the night, what is the culprit? Trauma, poor health, lousy self care, a malfunction of the amygdala (the part of your brain responsible for controlling anger and fear) or something much more ominous? Are these bumps in the night the product of Rapid Eye Movement, or a visit from…

Robert Adams: Summer Nights, Walking

Robert Adams: Summer Nights, Walking

In the mid-1970s, Robert Adams began recording nocturnal scenes near his former home in Longmont, Colorado. Illuminated by moonlight and streetlamp, suburban houses, roads, sidewalks and fields seemed transfigured. 25 years after first publishing a sequence of these pictures in 1985 as Summer Nights, he revisited his project, amending its title and completely re-editing its contents to create a more…
