International Photography Awards 2012

Normally I don’t use PforPHOTO to talk about my own work. But today I found out that two of my photographs have been awarded an Honorable mention at the IPA, International Photography Awards 2012. Always nice to see something like that. Visit their website to see the winners and the other honorable mentions. Both professional and non-professional photographers have been awarded. So a lot of inspirational work to admire.

Hate it or Love it

Just like 50 Cent and The Game once elegantly rapped: Hate it or Love it. I am talking about the works of Terry Richardson. He photographs with a style that can be described as raw. The technique he uses doesn’t make his photographs that special. He manages to ‘strip’ his subject to just that, the subject. With often not more then a white background. Your focus can only go where he wants you to go, to the subject. He makes them act crazy, act sexy or act both ways. It seems so simple, yet it is such a direct and graphically interesting way of shooting one can only applaud the success he has with it. Thumbs up!
