Dave Black - The Art Of Sport

When Dave Black sees photographers collecting at a spot on the field, he runs—the other way. His images capture a different ­­­kind of decisive moment.

Dave Black - The Art Of Sport

If there's a single word to describe Dave Black's photographic sensibilities, it's “graphic.” While he's a photojournalist of the first degree, Black thinks of himself more as a photographer and an artist, and his dramatic images bear that out. Says Black about those graphic sensibilities, “I tend to be more artistic than journalistic with my images. I'm always looking at things in a very artistic and graphic way. I guess I've always been like that. My worst two years as a professional photographer—worst both creatively and financially—were the two years when I abandoned that graphic style.”

Howard Schatz - Trading Species

When Howard Schatz released his last book, 2002's Athlete, it was a study of the human form in motion, and every image in it was made on film. His next book, Botanica, due out this fall from Bulfinch Press, represents not only a dramatic change in subject matter, but a whole new technique. Every image in Botanica was captured digitally, as are most of Schatz's photographs these days.

Eric Meola - Last Places On Earth

Eric Meola's highly personal book project is the result of a photographic odyssey that began long before digital cameras came on the scene.

Eric Meola - Last Places On Earth

In the summer of 1962…my father decided to teach me Latin,” writes photographer Eric Meola in the preface of his new book, The Last Places On Earth (November 2004, Graphis Press). “All through June, July and August I repeated conjugations, my mind numbed by the drone of my father's voice. And then one day, a respite. A movie had come out called “Lawrence of Arabia,” and as my father talked of the Turks and the Ottoman Empire I knew I would have one afternoon to myself, to dream, to let my mind wander….”
