Important news!

new design

Dear Followers,

This week PforPHOTO will get a brand new design. After hours of work I’m finally done and satisfied with the new design. So out with the old and in with the new. On top of the amazing new layout I will start hosting the site myself. I’m sad to be leaving WordPress.com. So to all the WP.com followers I would like to ask you to stay in touch via www.PforPHOTO.com The new environment will give me more freedom. As I am planning on letting PforPHOTO grow. Self hosting the site will let me grow all I want. And that gives me the opportunity to let PforPHOTO become something special!

So please make sure you bookmark www.PforPHOTO.com.

I would also like to use this opportunity to let everybody know that I am looking for a guest poster. Are you fluent in English and are just as crazy about photography as I am? Then please send me an email: info@marceleverts.com.

See you soon on the all new website!

Cheers,

Marcel

Dark and Intimidating

5

Photographer Jonathan Andrew set out to photograph some of the concrete residues of World War II. Bunkers. These bunkers are scattered around the Netherlands and other places in Europe. His long exposure photos deliver an impact that somehow suits the time period in which the bunkers where used. Dark and intimidating. Almost like the feeling one would have when being at war. A great reminder that Europe has been free of war for almost 70 years. If you look around in the world at other continents, one can’t say the same. Let use Jonathan’s work as a reminder and as an inspiration for great photography.

Can you find Momo?

findmomo2_mini

We all know the children’s books Where’s Waldo or similar books in which you had to find somebody or something. For Andrew Knapp and his dog Momo this was an idea to match. With the popular photography service Instagram they set out to create some of those Where’s Waldo types of photographs. Very creative and fun.

Moscow Metro

634925708614264950

Photographer Tomer Ifrah visited Moscow’s metro system. The Russian capital has an underground metro system which transports an average of  6.5 million people per day. If I look at the images of Tomer Ifrah, it gives me a feeling I get when I look at old movies. A romantic depiction of the day-to-day lives of so many Russians.

Joey L’s Holy Men

Above the video shot during a visit to India by Joey L and his crew. He visited India to continue his series Holy Men. A portrait series of the men that leave their ordinary and material lives behind and set out to find spirituality. A truly wonderful series. As they put it themselves, they photograph something that seems ancient but is non the less happening in the present. If I think of India, I think busy places, noises, all kinds of aromas. But the photographs by Joey shows a peacefulness. Perhaps the spiritual lives of these Holy Men resonates through the photography of Joey L.

Plastic Pacific

garbageocean.jpg-6

The natural world is probably the most photographed subject there is. And the natural world below the ocean surface still holds many secrets. But this natural world is under constant attack. Under attack by us. Pollution is one of the biggest unnatural phenomenas that is invading the habitat of many living organisms. To bring more attention to this issue, photographer Kim Preston created the series Plastic Pacific. In which she shows sea life acted out by plastic objects. As if the war on territory has been won by the plastic creations of men. I believe her message comes across in a very creative and effective way. It makes you think about not only sea life but perhaps also about your own behavior. Kim Preston was inspired by the so called Pacific Trash Vortex. An area of about the size of Texas which is floating in the North Pacific Ocean.
