Photographers sure have guts. Atif Saeed is a nature photographer in Pakistan and had quite the run-in with a lion who really wasn’t in the mood to be photographed that day.

Evocative photography by Alison Scarpulla

Travis Lawrence Reader Find

By Travis Lawrence in New Photography on Wednesday 9 May 2012

Alison Scarpulla is a magician. All of her images are done through traditional film. There is no Photoshop: that is her dipping her negatives into acid and wine. There is no fancy light trick: that is her smearing dirt across the camera lens. If there is one thing an emerging artist should learn to appreciate it is the art of process. It is a ritual and a ceremony. Learn this, worship this, and poof. You are a magician! One can only hope that your magic is as real as hers.

New photography by Oracle Eyes

Travis Lawrence Reader Find

By Travis Lawrence in New Photography on Saturday 28 April 2012

Despite not being crazy about referring to myself as a ‘photographer’, a  current project of mine is Oracle Eyes Photography. The ideas are loosely based around the concept of the ‘hidden goddess’.

Pat Stevenson on Australia’s inspiring nightlife

Andy Reader Find

By Andy in New Photography on Friday 17 September 2010

We asked Hobogestapo photographer Pat Stevenson what Australian nightlife means to him: ‘I believe the main characteristic that makes Sydney and Australia stand out from the rest of the world is how tightly knit our community is, everyone knows everyone. This may sound like a bad thing, but it actually makes things great. I find in Sydney we are like one big family, everyone is on good terms with each other and for the most part it’s a very positive, supporting group of very talented musicians and creatives pushing each other to achieve something truly unique’.
