There’s some real talent coming out of Russia, I keep on coming across some amazing work such as Anna’s. Her portraits have a very delicate melancholy to them. Lots of different faces with slight differences in expression and emotion, and naturally, perfect use of the square format.
Tomorrow I’m off to Canada again for another year of studies, if any Montreal residents wanna meet up and chat (or show me work), just send a little word through the email ! patrick.caire[a]gmail.com
Kirill has some really beautiful captures in his relatively small flickr photostream. He uses several formats (6×6, 4×5, 8×10) to diversify his portraits and nudes. His pictures have a very peaceful vibrance to them, either because of the soft focus or his model’s soothing facial expression, most likely both.
lots more amazing work on his website
There are a lot of things I really enjoy about Carles’ photographs. I think in a few words these can be summed up to his models’ beautiful hair, the originality in his portraiture, and his use of B&W as well as different tones in color.
Basically all the things that make great photography in my mind.
I found Tania’s and Roman’s (update: all these pictures were taken by Tania and her bf Roman) work while going through Bennie’s great selection of photography over on Square and Circle. I think if I could I would just put up all of their work. She uses different models, in different settings, and adds loads more diversity in all her pictures. Great work
So I’m back from Peru, after a month of volunteering in the second biggest city, Arequipa. It was an amazing experience and I encourage anybody with the motivation to go over there and give a hand. I worked through the organization “Traveller Not Tourist” which was started 2 years ago by a Peruvian and English couple. The project is constantly growing, its possible to either teach English in a little school in one of the slums or help kids in an orphanage. I thought I’de share some of the bw pictures I got around the school when I was there:
More regular articles coming up during the week, now that I have a more stable internet connection !
