Bruce Smith - Beyond The Girl

Bruce Smith's 30-year career of bringing vitality and life to fashion springs from an inner energy that erupts in his on-set enthusiasm and animation

Bruce Smith - Beyond The Girl

For Bruce Smith, making a photograph is more than setting up a camera in front of a model and releasing the shutter. It's about the moment, the energy and the spontaneous, intimate connection that happens between people. He shouts out his encouragement as he moves around his model, responding to the subtle changes in shapes and expressions that appear before him. He erupts into joyful laughter as he revels in the exciting juxtaposition of shape, color and gesture. These are the moments he lives for.

Ed Kashi - In The Thick Of It All

Amidst a revolution in the fundamental nature of photojournalism, Ed Kashi stands as the quintessential next-generation storyteller

Ed Kashi - In The Thick Of It All

Photographer Ed Kashi defines the phrase “next-generation photojournalist.” Rather than reject the use of or struggle with adopting digital imaging tools and technologies, he has readily welcomed them. He acknowledges that the days of working strictly as a print photographer, in the spirit of Cartier-Bresson or Kertész, are long gone. As a photojournalist, creating static images no longer suffices as an effective means of storytelling.

David Mendelsohn - The Complexity Of Simplicity

David Mendelsohn is modern photography's John Henry, locked in a battle to keep image processing from completely dominating the creative process of taking a picture

David Mendelsohn - The Complexity Of Simplicity

Digital photography and its infinite possibility can make us forget how to do things correctly from the start. The idea that anything is possible, and every mistake fixable, has taken a hold of an industry that used to know better. Not only that, but as much fun as Photoshop can be, it also can be the ultimate black hole. And the more hours spent tweaking in front of your computer, the less time you spend in the field.

Jean-François Rauzier - The Image Is In The Details

Jean-François Rauzier's Hyper-photo composites are extraordinary in size, in vision and particularly in detail.

Jean-François Rauzier - The Image Is In The Details

"On Time,” Jean-François Rauzier's gargantuan 32-by-66-foot panorama composed of several hundred seamless images of clocks, cliffs, buildings and ocean, is emblematic of the hours upon hours Rauzier spends to capture, compose and edit each of his Hyper-photo dreamscapes. In the photo, a man in black stands alone amidst a beach comprised entirely of clocks, thousands and thousands of clocks.

Holger Maass - The Idea Comes First

German photographer Holger Maass is an artist whose surrealist images are firmly grounded in photographic and digital technique

Holger Maass - The Idea Comes First

One can't merely look at a Holger Maass photograph; one is visually transported into a different place and time, not necessarily of this world, bringing to mind the quote, “I reject your reality and substitute my own.” Maass' photographs are more like snapshots of the deepest fantasies and dreams one has while lost in thought in a magical world only existent in your imagination—or in his imagination.
