Gang Life by Robert Yager

Robert Yager’s photographs of L.A. Latino gang life hint at a photographer very comfortable with his technique; a photographer winning the trust of subjects in the most unlikely places. Take a peek at the attached interview for some amazing insights into how these incredible photographs came to be.

Favourite (famous) photographer 1: Richard Avedon

Credited by the New York Times with defining America’s image of style, beauty and culture for the last half-century, Richard Avedon’s portfolio of photographs are almost beyond comparison. Photos ranging across the realms of reportage, fashion and portraiture, Avedon’s images are a document of the country that stamped its life and culture all over the 20th century.

Keen photographers and photo anoraks will already be aware, so I won’t continue to bore…have a look at the Richard Avedon Foundation website and marvel.

An Android’s Memories

For this author, Tomasz Kaluzny’s ambient images of nightscapes are photographic nirvana. I’m not going to attempt any long musings on light, composition or location. Simply visit the Behance Network and let this series wash over you.

Weegee: It’s a Crime to Take Photographs This Good…

The Michael Hoppen Gallery in London is exhibiting the works of Weegee until 9th January 2010.

This is an opportunity for all photographic fans in the capital to appreciate the stark work of a photojournalist who was always there. The story goes that Weegee (real name: Arthur Fellig) gained his photo-moniker after being compared to a ouija board: always in the right place, at the right time, to capture crimes moments after they happened. Weegee captured New York during the 1930’s and 1940’s unlike any other photojournalist.

An absolutely seminal photographer from one of the greatest photographic eras of the 20th century.

Jordan Manley Photography

Twice winner of the Deep Winter Photographic Competition in Whistler, Jordan Manley is probably our favourite ski & snow photographer. Jordan’s photography combines the elemental colours we associate with the mountains – white-outs shot in black & white; silhouettes in the morning sun; deep blues of ice and the sky; blinding yellows of the sunset.
