French photographer, since january 2014, living in Uzes in the south of France.

I am primarily a portrait painter, lover of faces and emotions that can restore a look, an expression of body movement.
I have a preference for rendering homage to the painting of the neoclassical period. the set of lights and colors that highlight the natural beauty of the models.
A style that tries to get away from the dictates of modern representation of women to return to ue some form of grace and gentleness.

I also love fashion photography allows me to working in a more modern way

Pinkhassov’s interest in photography began while he was still at school. After studying cinematography at the VGIK (the Moscow Institute of Cinematography), he went on to work at the Mosfilm studio and then as a set photographer.

In 1978 Pinkhassov joined the Moscow Union of Graphic Arts and obtained the status of an independent artist. His work was noticed by the prominent Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, who invited Pinkhassov to the set to make a reportage about his film ‘Stalker’ (1979).

Pinkhassov moved permanently to Paris in 1985. He joined Magnum Photos in 1988. He works regulary for the international press, particularly for Geo, Actuel and the New York Times Magazine.

In my work, I search for a bright and strong artistic effect, for a charming photographic language in shape, color and with the use of light. I pay great attention to the setting of the picture in an effort to combine the objectivity of the external world with my interiority, to obtain an image which represents both the “momentum” and my “artistic conception”. Following this general concept, I created my artwork “Mother and Son. Jiming Lv

Liza is a very special model- her face is child-like and innocent but her gaze is strong and deep. That was my first impression of her and I have tried to capture it in this portrait using soft but assertive balance between light, shadows and with a delicate asymmetry introduced into a symmetrical centered composition that dominates this image.

Mud park, located in Xiushan island of Zhoushan City, is the first mud theme park in China. My work represents two visitors completely covered with mud, with a group of “muddy people” in the background. I used the contrast between light and shadow to show childish enjoyment. Changming Liu

I took this photo in Shangri square in China. I was attracted to an old thoughtful man. It was difficult to convince him to let me take his picture as we couldn’t communicate in any language. After much effort and the use of body language, he allowed me to take pictures of him. I took them from different angles to be able to represent his pensive mood. Leyla Emektar

El desnudo y los retratos me tienen bajo sus encantos. Desde un lunar en el hombro hasta un flequillo más largo de lo normal. Los detalles y rasgos son lo que hacen únicas a las personas, aunque a veces no lucimos nuestras particularidades por miedo a no estar dentro de los prototipos idealizados o a nuestro propio rechazo al cuerpo. El arte como terapia es algo que me ha gustado desde que conozco y su uso en la fotografía es algo que intento (algún día) conseguir en mis fotografías.

To photograph for me is to connect. To get a glimpse into another’s life, a moment, or a feeling- in the time space continuum- and more importantly, a means to share that bond.

Bred on episodes of Travel in the 90s, and ever since I laid my hands on my Father’s old Yashica as a 14 year old, I have always longed to reach out to discover, and share narratives in this form. Born into a traditional Hindu family with emphasis on a conventional career, if at all for a woman, following the path of a photographer has never been easy.

Originally trained as an Engineer, I quit my job three years back and joined a course in Communication to understand language, imagery and culture. Learning from the course supplemented my photography and powered my desire to pursue a dream of being a visual storyteller. Banking on the kindness of strangers, and many experiments later, the dream travels.

Since then, I have been working on my photographs, which revolve around conflicts, cultures, identity and other documentary work.

Both my visual and written work has appeared in a number of National and International Publications and has been exhibited in India and abroad.

I was also the Winner of the 2013 National Geographic Photography Scholarships and went on Assignment to Greenland. The same year, I was also an invited attendee to the Angkor Photo Workshops at Cambodia.

I am currently working on freelance assignments and personal projects and am based out of Bombay in India.

When the baby is born we don’t need a doctor. Everything happens here, on the boat. We don’t have any medicine. We cannot go to the hospital, we’re just staying here for the birth. And mother takes care of the baby,” – says Bungsali, an old looking man, who doesn’t know his age. He spent the whole life on the boat and wants his grandchildren to continue his lifestyle.

The Bajau Laut or Sama Dilaut, also known as sea gypsies, are indigenous ethnic group, retaining a seaborne lifestyle. They live in the boats, roaming in between the Coral Triangle (marine waters of Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste) or settle in small stilt houses, built on the reef or islands. They are traditionally from the Sulu Archipelago in the Phillippines, coastal areas of Mindanao and northern Borneo.

William Eggleston

1

A native Southerner raised on a cotton plantation in the Mississippi Delta, Eggleston has created a singular portrait of his native South since the late 1960s. After discovering photography in the early 1960s, he abandoned a traditional education and instead learned from photographically illustrated books by Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Frank. Although he began his career making black-and-white images, he soon abandoned them to experiment with color technology to record experiences in more sensual and accurate terms at a time when color photography was largely confined to commercial advertising. In 1976 with the support of John Szarkowski, the influential photography historian, critic, and curator, Eggleston mounted “Color Photographs” a now famous exhibition of his work at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. William Eggleston’s Guide, in which Szarkowski called Eggleston’s photographs “perfect,” accompanied this groundbreaking one-person show that established his reputation as a pioneer of color photography. His subjects were mundane, everyday, often trivial, so that the real subject was seen to be color itself. These images helped establish Eggleston as one of the first non-commercial photographers working in color and inspired a new generation of photographers, as well as filmmakers.

I was born in the Soviet Union when it was still the USSR. I’ve never formally learned how to take photos. When I was 14 or 15 my father bought a camera for me, and I started to take photos, though not seriously at the start. Then in two years I decided that I love it! And when I was 17 I could see my future would connected to shooting. I started work when I was 18, at 19 me and my sister decided to work together, just because it was easier. But influences and inspirations became more different day by day, and now we work independently. I spent a year in Florida, and it had a really great influence, all these long sunny lazy days, my photos were kind of “floridian” for about two years, and they still look so now sometimes.

While most travelers go to places in Ethiopia by plane from Addis Ababa , the capital, we chose to do it all by car.
It felt like we were traveling through the whole African continent due to the diversity of the sites and people we experienced.
These photos reflect the timelessness of all these places. Time has stood still in most parts of the country.
Locations: Lalibela, The Danakil depression, Konso, the Omo Valley, Hawassa and Addis Ababa.

I was born in Paris but have lived most of my life in Los Angeles, CA.

5653670_orig

Anka was born on December 4, 1980. She spent her childhood with books on art and her mothers’ drawing tools, covering acres of paper with her drawings. In 1997 she entered the Moscow Architectural Institute deciding to follow in her mothers’ footsteps. But at the end of 1997 her mother was diagnosed with cancer and died in less that a year. Then her father died in 1999.
After that Anka’s life changed dramatically. In attempt to keep sane, she plunged into an alternative lifestyle – working as a tattoo artist, singing in a rock-band, sometimes looking for escape in alcohol. In order to make a living while studying, Anka worked at several modeling agencies. Thanks to the drawing lessons she wasn’t afraid to pose nude, and her photos appeared in the Playboy and XXL magazines and at the Playboy 1999 photo exhibition. But she was not looking for a modeling career – it was just a way to make some money.
In 2001 Anka was working in the post-production department at the Mosfilm StudiosThat same winter one of her colleagues invited her to spend a week-end in Saint-Petersburg with his friend, composer and musician Alexander Zhuravlev. In less than a month Anka said farewell to Moscow, her friends, her Mosfilm career and moved in with Alexander in Saint-Petersburg. Living with her loved one healed her soul, and she regained the urge for painting. She made several graphic works and ventured into other areas of visual arts. In 2002 Gavriil Lubnin, the famous painter and her husband’s friend, showed her the oil painting technique, which she experimented with for the following several years. During that period she made just a few works because each one required unleashing of a serious emotional charge. All those paintings are different as if created by different people.
Anka’s first exhibition took place on a local TV channel live on the air – the studio was decorated with her works.
Several exhibitions followed.
Private collections in Russia and abroad feature her paintings and sketches.

In 2006 Anka noticed that her inspiration often came from photos and decided to take up photography.
Since that time Anka took part in numerous projects -magazine’s publications and covers, book and CD covers, exhibitions.
She engage digital photo art and analog film photography as well.
In 2013 Anka with her husband moves to live in Porto, Portugal.

I believe that the camera is a medium of light, that one actually paints with light. In using the spotlights with reflecting lights, I could control the quality of the forms revealed to build a composition. Photography, to my mind, is not a fine art. It is splendid for recording a period of time, but it has definite limitations, and the photographer certainly hasn’t the freedom of the painter. One can work with taste and emotion and create an exciting arrangement of significant form, a meaningful photograph, but a painter has the advantage of putting something in the picture that isn’t there or taking something out that is there. I think this makes painting a more creative medium.
