New York City-based photographer Alessandro Zuek Simonetti was born in Italy and grew up parallel to the urban street cultures of the early 90s. His own distinct photographic language reflects his deep interest in young niche cultures. Quite often, each project stretches beyond the photographic medium, which serves as a sign of his maturing expression […]
I met this kid Nick Brandreth about a year ago when I was lecturing to his RIT class during one of their visits to New York City. The kid is fearless and driven and an extreamly tallented young photographer. He’s definitely one of the bright young lights on the horizon. Him and I are actually […]
We asked New York-based photographer Mitchell Feinberg where he draws his inspiration from: ‘It can come from anywhere: a window display, a sculpture exhibit, even the basement of a hardware store. Sometimes I will have an old idea that takes many years to gel. Sometimes I’ll come up with something at the last minute. The […]
New York-based photographer Kathryn Parker Almanas has been published in American Photo Magazine, 25 Under 25 Up-and-Coming American Photographers, and The Photo Review, amongst many others, while exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions in New York, Boston, Chicago, Miami and Philadelphia. Phew! Her still lifes of food, in particular, make me kinda hungry. Hmm, what I wouldn’t give right now for an endless buffet and a steaming cup of coffee.
I love the rich colours and sense of unrehearsed movement about the photography of New York-based, Anna Skladmann. She studied at Parsons School of Design before undertaking yearly internships at Annie Leibovitz’s studio and the Magnum Photo Agency.
We asked New York photographer Christoph Morlinghaus about the process behind capturing one his of stunning architectural and interior shots: ‘More often than not my time at a certain location is extremely limited. For example, for the shots that I took at Terminal 5, there was no access before the shoot day and I had […]
New York photographer Kate Kunath’s series on rabbit breeders captures owners with their furry friends, looking every bit as possessive and enamored of their pointy eared pets as any slightly obsessive dog owner might be. Of the photo essay, she says: ‘I got my big break in 2004 at the American Rabbit Breeders Convention. I’m kidding, but there really is a Best in Show for bunnies every year, similar to the Westminster for dogs, without the high-brow. The first time I went to a show, I was really impressed by the rabbit breeders, so I returned the following year with a photo studio’.
New York photographer Amy Stein’s work ‘explores our evolving isolation from community, culture and the environment’. Her recently released book, Domesticated, began when she was in grad school. ‘I was simply trying to make compelling images that wouldn’t get eviscerated in critique’, she says of the project. ‘As the series progressed, I began to become interested in exhibiting the work and have had many opportunities to do so this year. The Critical Mass book is the icing on the cake’. There’s an extended interview with Amy Stein on the Feature Shoot photo blog.
James Rajotte’s photo series on Rochester’s East High School is a revealing insight into the parameters of ‘spatial relationships and the connotations of objects’. Of the work, he says: ‘My interest in photographing East came about as I was volunteering in a mentoring program in which students made short video productions with an anti-violent message. […]
Milos Radoicic was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he survived the gruesome war, and in 2003 left for Vancouver Canada, to study. He is now living in New York, studies finance, but also indulges his other passion — photography. ‘My focus has always been on street corners, telegraph poles, torn and shredded bits and pieces people fail to see as beautiful’, he says, ‘on things leftover and forgotten that to me seem to be telling a story’.
Jacqueline Di Milia grew up in America’s first mass produced suburbia, Levittown, New York. In Spring of 2005 she received a BFA in Photography from the School Of Visual Arts. After a few years of photo assisting with wide range of photographers, including Danielle Levitt and Cass Bird, she began shooting editorially in 2006. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York and obsessively watches French New Wave films. We interviewed her recently.
You can see the subtle influence of Gregory Crewdson in this photo series — Psych Securities, LLC — of Brooklyn-based photographer, Gerald Edwards III. The work is not only visually stimulating, but also intellectually challenging, posing as many questions of the viewers as it does of the environment in which they were taken. We interviewed him recently and asked him what made him decide to embark on this ambitious project.
Sara Macel’s Nighttime series shot around Brooklyn, New York, reminds me of the movie, 200 Cigarettes. Much like the movie, her photos have an energy of anticipation – like showing up two hours before the party gets going and then walking home at 5am before the sunrise.
New York photographer Sarah Wilmer creates dark, nightmare-inducing photographs that have a strange sense of innocence about them. They’re like movie stills, a cross between Lost Highway and Pan’s Labyrinth. We interviewed her recently to get the inside word on the inspirations behind her work.
Gregory Krum‘s series ‘Hard Times — Interiors Considering Varying Degrees of Failure’ reminds me of sneaking back into my high school and stalking the deserted halls while everyone else is in class. We caught up with the New York-based photographer to find out about his process and inspirations.
