Spotlight: Edward Steichen

Edward Steichen (1879 – 1973) is considered one of the greatest (if not the greatest) photographers of all time. Painter by education, he took up photography very early on and was one of the advocates of it as an art form with his friend, one of the most prominent photographers Alfred Stieglitz. Steichen started as …

Spotlight: Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry is one of the most famous living photographers. He is widely known for his “Afghan Girl” photo that was featured on the cover of National Geographic. However, taking a closer look at the images, it is evident that all of McCurry’s work is breathtaking and memorable. He has a special talent for truly …

Spotlight: Henri Cartier-Bresson

He is one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century and the father of street photography. His images are quick, clever, and the best examples of what street photography is all about. They have humorous notes in them, but they are still kept true. The term “Decisive Moment,” often associated with him, means …

Spotlight: Uta Barth

I am working on a photographer presentation for my class. I had to choose one photographer that inspired my work and I chose Uta Barth. Uta Barth was interested in photographic and visual perception throughout her career. The minor and moody are subject matters themselves. She may be not so interested in at which she …

Spotlight: Christy Lee Rogers

The photos of this self-taught photographer are stunning. Dramatic light, splashes of colors, almost abstract outlines of people make her photographs look classically baroque. It seems that viewers have seen these light and colors long time ago, doesn’t it? — Фото этого фотографа-самоучки великолепны. Драматичный свет, всплески цветов, почти абстрактные очертания людей делают ёё фотографии классически барокко. Кажется, что зрители уже видели этот свет и цвета давным давно, неправда ли?  

Spotlight: Matt Wisniewski

This is absolutely fantastic. I fell in love with his vision. Women, flowers, colors intersect in absolutely natural and lovely ways. Even though these collages require a lot of post-processing, I still think that he is a photographer and a true artist of today. — Это абсолютно фантастически. Я влюбилась в его виденье. Женщины, цветы, цветы соединяются совершенно естественно и прекрасно. Хоть эти коллажи требуют много пост-обработки, я всё равно думаю, что он фотограф и настоящий художник сегодняшнего дня.  

Spotlight: Robert Doisneau (1912 – 1994)

One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A lot could have been claimed and verbalized, but I’ll only say that his photographs seem to capture the human nature, tell a whole story of the subject, and mirror his or her essence. I’ve tried to keep the photo count to 20, but couldn’t resist …
