Lonely Canvas photo series by Matthew Taplinger

Matthew Taplinger Reader Find

By Matthew Taplinger in New Photography on Thursday 6 October 2011

Over the course of the past few months, I started to notice a theme arising in the archives of my own photography work: lone figures standing in the face of adversity, desolate landscapes, beauty, and so on. I recently started compiling some of my favorite images which fit this theme, while continuing to shoot with this in mind. I hope to exhibit this series within the coming year.

Wyatt Gallery is a person, not a place. I met Wyatt almost eight years ago through an ex-girlfriend. Since then, we have traveled all over the planet, photographing things (mostly natural disasters) together. Our first trip was to Sri Lanka in 2004 in the weeks following the Tsunami. Our most recent trip was just a few weeks ago when we went to Haiti.

Phillip Toledano

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Photography on Wednesday 31 March 2010

Phillip Toledano, whom we mentioned a while back for the lyrical yet heartbreakingly honest photographic style in his Days with My Father project, is also capable of creating staged and fantastical imagery, as with his Hope&Fear series. In many cases, he combines the two sensibilities. In A New Kind of Beauty, Toledano documents plastic surgery patients, drawing out both their ethereal qualities as well as their tragic humanity.

Alison Zavos Contributor

By Alison Zavos in New Photography on Tuesday 16 March 2010

Working out of Portland, Robbie Augspurger got his first camera for his twelfth birthday, held at Showbiz Pizza Place, where there were animatronic animals wearing suits and playing in a band. He didn’t immortalize that rare vision on film that night, but ever since he can remember, he was interested in taking pictures.

Winkler and Noah children puppet series

Alison Zavos Contributor

By Alison Zavos in New Photography on Thursday 4 June 2009

This photo series by Winkler and Noah captures children as puppets, creating a sense of hyper-reality where the protagonists of their portraits appear in a real context, but stand out from it as if highlighted by reality itself. Of the project, they says: ‘The Puppet Show came into being by chance, one late summer afternoon two and a half years ago, after a day at the sea with our granddaughter, Beatrice. We had the idea of photographing her together with her mother. Among the various pictures, there was one where she was alone, leaning with her back against our wardrobe and looking into the camera with an embarrassed smile. She had all the typical features of a doll: a round head, blond curls, blue eyes, tanned skin, a flowery dress’.

Davin Youngs

By Julia Hennock in New Photography on Saturday 22 March 2008

Davin Youngs has got something sweet going on. His pictures, as he calls them, are the of-the-moment kind. Y’know, the spontaneous, romantic, stylised yet amateurish thing photographers are doing these days. Like American Apparel, but lost in the woods or asleep on the toilet. I really appreciate it.
