Steve McCurry: Portraits from around the world

Steve McCurry is a famed photojournalist who has travelled the world taking portraits that will go down in photographic history, his portraits have a special look and identity to them. McCurry documents the lives of his subjects, giving the viewer an insight into the lives of the people he photographs.

I first discovered McCurry when I stumbled across his most famous photograph, which is titled ‘Afghan girl’ (shown below).  I was immediately taken aback by this stunning image and I was also intrigued to see more his work, as I began to look through his portraits I realised just how talented this photographer is. Alot of the people featured are clearly facing many trials and tribulations within the environment they live, McCurry allows them to share their story with the world!

Michelangelo di Battista: Gwen Stefani.. Stunning portrait

I came across this incredible shot today by fashion/portrait photographer Michelangelo di Battista, this is from his shoot of famed singer Gwen Stefani. This shot is so incredible in every aspect, the sense of drama and atmosphere is intense creating great impact. This is without even mentioning, the stunning composition and lighting of this photograph.

The bokeh to the right of the image is smooth and beautiful allowing the sharpness of the left side of the image to stand out just that bit more.

LJ.- A Staggering Portrayal of Life on the streets

I stumbled across this incredible portrait of a Homeless man on Flickr, this really is a powerful and memorable photograph. I have found in recent times, that sometimes ‘photographing the homeless’ has become a fashionable thing to do! I personally find this a bit insulting, as it appears some people are taking photographs of the homeless purely because it’s an easy and cheap way to make ‘ART’ as they see it.

This image is refreshing, as it is authentic and genuine. His piercing eyes are filled with soul and emotion, the connection with camera and subject is incredibly strong. The fact he is using ‘cardboard’ instead of paper for joints that he smokes reveals the hardship the man is suffering on a daily basis. Truly moving!

Tim Walker: A Fashion Photography Haze of Beauty

Tim Walker has to be one of the best Fashion photographers around today, Walker was an assistant to Richard Avedon and has worked for top magazines such as Vogue on a regular basis. I was first introduced to his work in the V&A museum in London (and hooked I was!!). My first reaction when I got home was to Google ‘Tim Walker’, and explore more of his work.

It’s not hard to see why he has had such a formidable career, when you see his images. Dreamy, beautiful, hazy and unique are all words that can be used to describe Walker’s work.

He has carved a niche for himself by dragging you the viewer into a fantasy world with every image he creates, great thought and planning goes into every photograph. I thought I would share with you today some of Tim’s best haze filled fashion photograph beauty… Enjoy…

B.Image: Effortless Street Portrait Photography

I have been following B.Image’s work on Flickr for a while now, he specialises in posed and candid Street Portrait Photography in Singapore. To execute such photography takes courage, as it involves walking up to complete strangers and asking them to pose for photograph’s often risking rejection and worse! Taking candid street shots also takes courage, as you risk upsetting the person you are sneakily photographing as they walk down the street if they spot you.

It also takes skill to achieve strong images with such a limited time frame, you can’t exactly ask the member of the public you have picked out to stand around for hours while you get that Perfect shot! This is clearly a skill that B.Image possesses in leaps and bounds when carrying out his impromptu photo  shoots.

His posed  street portraits are deep, expressive, meaningful and his candid shots are equally as effective. His confidence shines through in his work, as his subjects look relaxed and composed. This is quite an achievement when your subjects are not professional models. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I have.. To see more of B.Images work simply click on the images below..
