Quote of the Month:

"...whether a million monkeys with a million digital cameras would eventually shoot the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson?"

I Spy

A few more images in the ongoing Corner Shop & Back project. They reminded me of the strange figures in Chris Marker's La Jetée.

Louis Daguerre

Happy 224th Birthday Mr Daguerre.

A fitting tribute from Google today to one of the founding figures of photography, a day which might otherwise have passed unnoticed by many. No doubt the above image has also raised a few eyebrows with people, perhaps questioning who this Louis Daguerre even is. It is a sad reflection on the state of photography today that it is difficult to see any direct links back to his work from the digital world we all now inhabit. Hopefully though this will help a few believers remember just how valuable a photograph should be.


PS, sit very still and say 'cheese'!

American Colour

A series of images shot in the American Colour style. As a way of comparing this method of shooting to that of New Topographics these were shot inside the same house. This juxtaposition will hopefully highlight the contrasting approaches and differing outcomes of these two very different and unique styles.

Group Photo Shoot by V SHiPS for the Professional & Community Practice module. Photography by Daniel Vlahakis, Holly Spencer, Daniel Hamer, Stephanie Pond and Christopher Seaton. There is also this short accompanying video of the day:

Thanks to Dan, Holly and Hayley for modelling. All in all, it was a hectic, but successful day.
