If you haven’t seen the documentary “War Photographer” ,  take a look at the trailer and  buy it here:

Nobuyoshi Araki

July 7, 2009

It’s hard to define what Araki is up to. A little bit of everything and a lot of bondage maybe, but few photographers are as versatile and knowledgeable as the crazy japanese.

If you would like to see more videos of Araki, I can strongly recommend to watch “Arakamentari” (and here is the trailer):

Ralph Gibson

June 29, 2009

Next photographer in line is Ralph Gibson (take a look at his work here).
The interview can also be found at photoinduced.com, which also feature an interview with Elliott Erwitt that I will link when I’ve got more time (on holiday at the moment). Anyway, here is Ralph Gibson:

Stephen Shore

June 19, 2009

A little short documentary about colour pioneer Stephen Shore. He was interested in photography from an early age. Self-taught, he received a photographic darkroom kit at age six. He began to use a 35mm camera three years later and made his first color photographs. At ten he received a copy of Walker Evans’s book, American Photographs, which influenced him greatly. At age seventeen Shore met Andy Warhol and began to frequent Warhol’s studio, the Factory, photographing Warhol and the creative people that surrounded him. In 1972 Shore embarked on a series of cross-country trips and “on the road” photographs of the American landscape.

Among the first to work almost exclusively in color, Shore, in 1971, became the first living photographer to have a one-person show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Update: Read the interview made by Gill Blank here (PDF), from 2007! He has done a few other interviews with other photographers aswell, they can be found here.

Alec Soth

Magnum photographer Alec Soth, in a couple of interviews;

Update:

A couple of days ago I bought an first edition/first print edition of Alec Soth’s book “Dog Days Bogatá”, for about 30 us dollars at my local bookshop. As you can see, that was probably a good deal 🙂

Here are a couple of new videos both at work, and a nice slideshow made by Magnum:

Helmut by June

June 18, 2009

In 2004,  Helmut Newton died in a car crash in Los Angeles at the age of 83.  By that time he had become one of the most influential photographers of all time. Born in Berlin, he arrived in Australia in 1940 and married June Brunell (a.k.a. Alice Springs) eight years later. He first achieved international fame in the 1970’s while working principally for French Vogue, and his celebrity and influence grew over the decades. Working and living in close companionship with his wife until his death, his images remain as distinctive, seductive and orginal as ever.

Brilliant documentary, made by his wife June:

Ansel Adams Documentary

June 18, 2009

What follows is a documentary of Ansel Adams, a true craftsman and pioneer within his field of landscape photography. This video may feel outdated in terms of time and in the techniques being used, but the content is  still as relevant and inspiring as it was when the video was made (1983).

“I don’t have anything to say in any picture. My only interest in photography is to see what something looks like as a photograph. I have no preconceptions.” -Gary Winogrand
