I saw this photograph, and my heart dropped. Definitely the most beautiful portrait of a baby I’ve ever seen, by Torbjorn Rodland.The natural lighting here is beautiful, amongst other things. (Like how soft this photo is, how his eyes shine, and how he seems to know something we don’t.)

Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies
and their changes, small pieces of history in suspension.”

Three great series by Yves Marchand & Romain Meffe with a really interesting outlook on buildings and spaces that once were.

The Family Dig

Mom Wrapped In Afghan by Ben Alper

One of the main reasons I want so badly to move back to New York is to be able to photograph my family all the time, not just during the summer and some holidays. I believe that as a photographer your family is so important to capture, no matter how you feel about them. Ben Alper‘s The Family Dig is a good example of this.

Immersion Project

Photograph by Robbie Cooper

“Robbie Cooper’s compelling portraits of adolescents playing video games, which appeared last November in The New York Times Magazine, are part of an ambitious and unusual project called Immersion. A former photojournalist, Cooper plans to film hundreds of adults and children as they immerse themselves in movies, TV programs and video games.”

I find this project really interesting and yes, a bit humorous. The photos are taken from the television or computer screen they are playing or watching from, which makes the facial expressions extrememly genuine.

Requiem for a City

“Once a thriving industrial hub, Camden, New Jersey, now ranks among the poorest, most dilapidated, and most dangerous cities in America.

Photographer Jose Moreno spends quite a bit of time there covering mostly bad news for the Cherry Hill Courier Post. But what he notices— beyond the prostitutes and drug dealers—is the ghost of Camden’s mid-20th century glory days, the beauty of its rundown architecture, and occasional signs of hope and renewal. He captures all of that in an offbeat slideshow called “Camden: An Architectural View.”

I find these tones beautiful for wedding photographs. I also love the snap-shot quality that this has.

Last One Out, Please Turn On The Light

Photograph by Richard Nicholson

“I have lit these often-gloomy spaces to reveal the beauty of the machinery; enlargers are masterpieces of industrial design. And I have sought to shed light on the surrounding personal workspaces (snapshots of family members, souvenirs from globetrotting photographers, guidebooks to Photoshop, out-takes from glamour shoots, lists of unpaid invoices).”

Richard Nicholson explored London to photograph the last remaining professional darkrooms, finding himself extremely nastalgic. I am lucky to work in a lab, and I know that when I no longer smell those chemicals or work in the dark, I will feel an overwhelming nostalgia, as well.

“The Ones We Love is a project highlighting young and talented photographers from around the world. Each artist contributed six photographs of the person(s) who is most important to them, taken outdoors in a natural setting. The goal of the website is to portray the people who are loved, cherished, and inspirational to these artists, and also showcase the differences and similarities in the photographs each of them took within the same guidelines.”
