“I try to use whatever I know about photography to be of service to the people I’m photographing.” – James Nachtwey
The photo world lost an amazing fine art photographer a couple days ago. The attached image is one of my favorites by Lucien Clergue.
Swam in the Adriatic Sea today with these guys! Good Times. Stay tuned for a short video.
I was literally just sitting in the lobby of the hostel - and there was a group of Canadians discussing how epic it would be - to be near a Tim Hortons...Hahahahahaha - I can't believe I just experienced that.
I had to post it immediately.
Finally in Copenhagen. After a long flight and navigating to the hostel I am finally settled in. The first day out I ended up walking 20 + miles and a train ride to Malmo Sweden...resulted in a regretfully sore and tiring next day. Hopefully once my feet have recovered I can get back out and discover something worth photographing. One thing I've noticed so far - people are very hard to talk to in Denmark - to spark a conversation with anyone is like pulling teeth. Two conversations have been had - one with a girl from brazil in my hostel room and a man from scotland that I mistakenly started talking to. The goal is to compile portraits of locals - no success as of yet.
I hope to stay unemployed as a war photographer till the end of my life.
“Whats the use of having a great depth of field if there is not an adequate depth of feeling?”
Halsmann: “What if nobody sees 'your work'? Besides a few friends?”
Smith: “Answer this and you will see how artists have acted throughout the bloody ages. The goal is the work itself.”
As a photographer i've always had the passion to convey a story for the oppressed and suffering. It sometimes is such an urge - it tempts me to quite my day job and take off to another country and like the great James Nachtwey document for the world to see the atrocities others are suffering from.
The images captured by this photographer are very alluring - They tug at the heart. Click the above link to view.
