books2012

The year is coming to a close. And the holiday season is in full swing. Time for that special gift for that special someone. Or perhaps for yourself. If you are not sure what to get this year, keeping in mind that some even believe this will be our last year…ever, this might be a good time for that special gift. Photo-Eye Magazine has published The Best Books of 2012. A selection of books chosen by a large group of experts, editors and photographers. Among them Martin Parr, Erik Kessels, Todd Hido and Alec Soth.

Intense Olympics

The Olympics are almost a week on their way now. Many medals have been won and many tears have been shed. Hours of training resulting in either eternal bliss or quite the opposite. All those sports and emotions reminded me of a photo series.

Back in 2009 I visited the World Press Photo. The photo series the Olympics reminded me of was that of diving men by Vincent Laforet. I liked the photos. But being a photography student at the time,  I felt the need to edit the photos. By taking some pictures with my mobile, I cropped the pictures in a way that the photo’s context didn’t matter anymore. All that is left are the faces of men doing something intense.
