As the daughter of a wedding photographer, Yvonne Venegas’ work emerges from a reflection of portraiture charged by an analysis of social class and self-representation, particularly that of the Mexican upper middle class. She is interested in problematizing the idea of the perfect or official memory, by seeking moments of fragility or un-preparedness for the camera. Inhabited by upper middle-class social rituals, ideas of celebrity and beauty, upper class leisure, animals from a private zoo, beauty queens, or young wealthy children, she seeks to represent a fractured version of the images and situations that are traditionally understood to bring status and/or respect. Her experience growing up in the border has established in the way she views her subjects as well as the photographic practice itself, where she constantly looks for blurring lines between portraiture and documentary as well as explores the pulsating space between the perfect image and one that social studio photography could consider an error.

When producing work, Venegas believes in the relationship to the world via a camera as well as via her participation in situations over long periods of time. Anthropological curiosity and empathy are both essential elements of her practice. An important outcome for her work is printed and framed for gallery presentation, as well as in book form. She has published three books Maria Elvia de Hank (2010), Inedito (2012) and Gestus (2015), all by the editorial house RM.

 

Since 2009 Yvonne lives and works in Mexico City with her husband and two children.

In her exuberant and explosive pictures, Lois Greenfield captures not just the lithe and acrobatic forms of dancers performing their art, but the purity and exhilaration of movement itself. Without tricks or manipulation of any kind, she catches fleeting and impossible moments in a style that is both lyrical and graphic. Greenfield has been compared with Eadweard Muybridge for his exploration of human locomotion and with Henri Cartier-Bresson for capturing the decisive moment. Unlike her predecessors however, her images depict but don’t refer to the “real” world. They are documents of her imagination.

Beginning her career as a photojournalist, Greenfield covered the experimental dance movement scene for the Village Voice from 1973 to the mid 90’s. In 1982 she decided to open her own studio where she could control the lighting, and work with dancers in a collaborative environment.

Her exploration of the expressive possibilities of photographed movement and her unique approach to photographing the human form in motion has radically redefined the genre and influenced a generation of photographers.

Greenfield has created signature images for countless contemporary dance companies as well as commercial clients.  Her photographs have been featured in many magazines worldwide and exhibited internationally. She frequently gives lectures and offers workshops.

Since 2014 Greenfield has been an Artist in Residence at NYU/Tisch Department of Dance and New Media. In 2015, She was honored with the Dance in Focus award in recognition of her ground-breaking contributions to the field. Her third book, “Lois Greenfield:Moving Still”, (Thames & Hudson, UK & Chronicle Books, USA) will be released in Fall 2015.

 

Order Lois Greenfield’s new book, Moving Still via Amazon and help support the show.

A great street portrait is more than just a photograph of a stranger. In many ways that person being photographed and the photographer enter a collaboration. The subject is choosing to open themselves to being revealed and interpreted by the photographer. And the photographer, if he’s adept enough, is communicating what they find fascinating and beautiful about that subject. And in the hands of a really good photographer, they reveal something about the community and the culture they exist in.

 

Shawn Theodore is just such a photographer. Known as @_xST on Instagram, the photographer who calls Philadelphia home has been creating a remarkable series of portraits largely of African American men and women of various generations against the colorful backdrops that exist in rapidly changing urban communities. His work is as much a chronicler of a people at a specific time as it is a bold statement of what it means to be black, to be beautiful and be visible.

Once you’ve made the decision to practice photography and after you’ve made the investment in a camera and software, well, that’s when the real challenge begins. The questions becomes how you get from being yet another guy or gal with a camera to one that actually produces work that is unique, beautiful and hopefully personal.

 

Yet, as difficult and challenging as that might be, we see examples of ordinary people make work that stuns and inspires, using the vary same tools that we readily have access to. Jaime Ibarra is one such photographer.

 

Jaime Ibarra is a self-taught photographer whose creative life began as a musician, then a graphic designer and eventually a photographer. But even though photography came later in his life, he used the skills he he had developed teaching himself music to teach himself how to do extraordinary things with a one camera, one lens and Photoshop.

The beauty of the landscape is experienced in a unique and beautiful way when it is captured as a black and white photograph. Without the presence of color, the natural world is revealed using a very personal point of view, that of the photographer.. Shades of gray reveal the subtle nuances that are not immediately obvious when we see the world in full color. 

 

Photographer Gary Wagner began exploring this world on film using a large-format camera and chemistry, but he has embraced the flexibility and control that digital provides, especially with his black and white imagery. 

 

In his new book Digital Black and White Landscape Photography: Fine Art Techniques from Camera to Print, Gary shares how he sees a scene, captures it with his camera and uses post-processing to complete his vision.

Rob Lutter is a  photographer, designer & writer from England. In 2011 he left his home in London to begin a photographic journey & global expedition attempt to cycle around the world. He  put the UK film industry behind him to embark on a creative, physical & psychological adventure across 4 world continents & more than 40 countries. His passion is in discovering & creating stories through film, word or photography & his  work aims to capture unique cultures & landscapes, to learn from them & share their lives & his  own with the world, inspiring others through tales of human endeavor.

This journey is many things. Primarily, it’s a photographic & literary travel project that aims to tell a universal story, about the need for change, adventure & happiness. Secondly, it’s a charity event that aims to raise £20,000 for mental health organisations – for every mile cycled a pound can be raised to help others struggling through life, as he has & still is, troubled by the mind. The trip is also just sheer escape – a way out of the office, out of the routines & constraints of daily life. A chance to create a fresh start & a name for himself in an unusual, exciting, cheap & unpredictable way. The unknown is a place where good things can happen, where something at all can happen.

Sam (Whittier Sam) Smotherman is narrative street photographer from Los Angeles, who believes in the power of dialogue and that is what he tries to create through his images. Not just a dialogue between observers but within the whole process. He is not removed from his pictures, but chooses instead to speak where subjects often have no voice, making sure to give articulation to those who have not only shared their image, but their words. Photography helps him to define and connect him with the world and his surroundings in a way it does not when he is not shooting. It is not just about the seeing or feeling an image; he wants to be compelled to think. Conveying truth in his images is important and he looks for the beauty in the broken because that is often where the truth lies. Working to show the conditions of life on the margins, he wants all people to feel they can help make the human condition better by working for social justice and spiritual grace.

Brian Matiash is a professional photographer as well as the Education Manager for OnOne Software. In his role as an educator, he teaches photographers how to improve their photographs and their editing skills with his many webinars, articles and blog entries, but he also has his own passion for photography.

He has specialized in developing and refining his use of HDR (High-Dynamic Range)  to use it not merely as a gimmicky visual effect, but rather as a tool to help him realize his own personal vision of a subject and a scene.

Dana Barsuhn is a young LA-based photographer who honed his skill on the streets of Los Angeles and used what he has learned to serve his early work as a professional photographer. Within a short period of time, he has developed a very personal visual sensibility with his street photography, which has not only allowed him to create distinct imagery in this popular genre, but has also helped him to create unique photographs. His growth as a photographer has recently inspired him to make the leap into a full-time professional photographer, with the hopes of achieving both financial and creative success.

William Albert Allard is a National Geographic photographer who is among of my personal favorite shooters. His work pushes the limits of what photographers think they can do with light and color, all the while creating images that tell amazing stories. His monographs on the photo essay as well as his classic photo stories on minor league baseball, the Hutterite community and blues musicians are classics and his work continues to provide inspiration for generations of photographers. A recent adopter to digital image making, he continues to explore the possibilities of what can be captures with a camera.

The Candid Frame #101 - Chris Porsz

Chris Porsz is an amateur photographer who has been documenting his community of Peterborough, England as a street photographer. His candid images of strangers document a particular time in the life of a town and its people, which is made all the more poignant by his recent rediscovery of these same subjects. His then and now portraits reveal not only how people have changed, but how the town has as well. Working as a full-time paramedic, he has created all of his images using his personal time, making him an a great example of how a photographer can make significant work even without becoming a "professional. You can discover more about him and his work by reading this article or visiting his website.

Chris Porsz recommends the work of Don McCullin.
