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.

Stan Musilek - Mixing It Up

How would you like to completely master studio lighting, develop your own highly refined and ever-evolving visual style, pick your clients and assignments, work comfortably in exciting locations and in your 10,000-square-foot, two-story converted factory studio in San Francisco, where you spend eight months of the year when you're not living and working in Paris? You wish you were Stan Musilek.

Bob O'Connor - Echoes

A young professional who was raised in the digital age prefers film and available light when he's behind a camera and goes high-tech in post

Bob O'Connor - Echoes

The MTV generation is all grown up. The young punks are now doctors and lawyers—and professional photographers with blossoming client lists that grow as fast as their reputations. For these Gen-Xers, television has always been in color, computers have always been personal and technology usually holds an answer for everything. But for Boston-based photographer Bob O'Connor, a 29-year-old who grew up in the heart of the Information Age, the high-tech approach isn't his approach. Instead of complex lighting and expensive digital cameras, O'Connor prefers working with the tools from previous generations—available light and large-format print film. Why?

Artists create fantasy, inspire and stimulate the human mind. Brown weaves fantasies from seemingly uninspired surroundings. No matter the project, he brings the disparate elements together in a cohesive image of beauty.

Bert Monroy - Re-Creating Reality

Bert Monroy is a Photoshop master who uses software like a brush and canvas all at once. He's not a photographer, but a digital painter who pushes the software envelope to create his art

Bert Monroy - Re-Creating Reality

Bert Monroy makes beautiful photographic images, but he doesn't do it with a camera. His photographs aren't photographs, and he's not even a photographer. He's a painter. Beginning with a blank canvas—actually, a blank computer screen—Monroy meticulously creates detailed images from sketches, notes and snapshots. Most people call Monroy a photo-realistic painter because they mistake his work for photography.

Jeff Liao - Broadway To Queens

Jeff Liao's remarkable exhibition, Habitat 7, takes ­us on a visual journey through the diversity of humanity that comprises the fabric of America

Jeff Liao - Broadway To Queens

Twenty-five-year-old Jeff Liao lives and works on a road less traveled—an odd observation, as Liao lives in New York City and has built his first award-winning body of work, Habitat 7, around the No. 7 train that he has traveled for seven years from his home in Queens to Times Square in Manhattan. What could be more populated and traveled than the route of the No. 7 train?
