Quite some time ago, I wanted to link to Helen Maurene Cooper’s work, but I was unable to find a website. So I was glad to come across her work the other day on Subjectify. Find some more information on her work here.

Heather Morton pointed out Edith Maybin’s work, noting that “part of me wants to believe that these shooters [Edith Maybin and some others] could have only been successful because they are mothers.”

Lissa Rivera’s work covers public and private schools in the United States. Needless to say, her work reminds me of my own series Higher Education.

Naho Kubota’s “landscapes” are a series of very nice details of urban surroundings, such as a car wash or a hospital.

I’m not sure Thomas Macker’s use of thumbnails is the best approach (look at “Gardeners and Housekeepers” to see what I mean), but there is a lot of good photography to be found on his site.

I like Daniel Everett’s “Departure” project, not so much the layout of the presentation, though, which reduces too many of the photos to postage-stamp sized images on the screen.

Found at the new Photoshelter blog: Stacy Mehrfar’s photography - check out “American Palimpsests”.

Tony Fouhse is a commercial/editorial photographer, whose personal portfolio contains quite a few interesting shots. I’m somewhat torn about “User”, though - not so much because of the photography, but because of the subject matter. I’ve lately seen a quite a few series on drug users, and I’m not sure whether turning drug users into a fine-art photography fad is going to help them too much. Needless to say, this concern applies not just to Tony’s work, but to all the other photographers who have produced similar work as well.

I have the feeling that some fine-art purists might find Alex Prager’s work a bit too commercial/slick looking, but it’s interesting nevertheless.

Kate Hutchinson has a lot of very beautiful work on her website - don’t miss “Why am I marrying him?”.

Michal Chelbin was included in this year’s PDN 30. When looking at her work, make sure not to overlook the restaged religious imagery. (updated entry)

Katie Kingma is included in this year’s PDN’s 30, and her work is well worth the visit.

There appears to be a hunger for deviations from the standard way to work on landscapes, and John Chiara’s work provides nice examples for a different approach.

David Prifti’s “wet plate collodion” portraits are very nice - not because of the process, but because of what he was able to produce (I consider the process to produce a photograph as the means and the photograph as the end).

I’m a bit torn about Santiago Mostyn’s work, but there is enough interesting photography on his website to make it well worth the visit.

Laura Letinsky’s photos look as if they were taken right in the middle of something: People are caught in some unknown (but hinted at) act, and food in still-life settings has been eaten but not cleaned up afterwards. Find a good interview with the artist here. (updated entry)

Commercial photographer Thomas Broening has recently set up a website of his personal work, Closer to where we want to be.

I usually don’t link to somebody’s work on Flickr, simply because I find the comments left by the ubiquitous sycophants too hard to take (“you did it!!!”, “amazing and beautfiul” [sic!], “you are in my dream”, etc. etc., almost ad infinitum), but with Jon Edwards, I don’t have much of a choice. Not everything is good - Flickr and editing usually don’t go together, but the good stuff really is very good.

And while you’re looking at Przemysław Pokrycki’s work, compare with Douglas Adesko’s “Family Meal”.

Digitally layering photos of the same subject has been explored by Idris Khan or Jason Salavon, but when looking at those images - as cool as they might look at first glance - I often ask myself: And now? Having seen all the Becher water towers or Playboy centerfolds in one image, what am I to take away from it? Pep Ventosa’s The Collective Snapshot is another such set of montages, which, in the end, for might prove most lasting. Combining snapshots of famous buildings or sights, taken by different people, is a bit akin to creating some sort of collective memory. Pep Ventosa’s other work is digital, too, but mostly decorative.

Alejandra Laviada’s work sits at the intersection of photography and sculpture. I’m usually not too fond of images taken in abandoned buildings, but hers are very interesting (because they go beyond the mere depiction of the emptied space).

Feb 12, 2008

Should photographers tell you what to make of what you see or not? It’s an old discussion (see just one of the many examples here), and Adrian Searle adds his voice here, discussing this year’s Deutsche Börse prize nominees.

At first, I only looked at Francesca Romeo’s portraiture (especially “Series 1”), but her work from a cemetary (“Series 3”) has grown quite a bit on me now.

Peter Snyder’s portraiture of people who are typically unaware that their photo is being taken follows well-known precedents and is, I think, quite successful (the above from Idling).

Noel Jabbour is a photographer of Palestinian descent who lives and works in Berlin, and whose projects are diverse and very interesting. I only wish the sample images were a tad bigger! (found via The Sonic Blog)
