This is a picture of a picture from Huseby Slott ( castle ) from earlier this summer. Where the different images start, or end, is not really clear. But, why should it be? Go there if you are around. You will find more info through the link, however only in swedish. But I am sure that you get the picture.
Amazingly beautiful images, but who made them? I hope we will find out. Read the full story with the link to BBC below.
A US photographer has launched an internet hunt to find two mysterious women pictured on an old roll of film she discovered in a second-hand shop.
Meagan Abell was sifting through a box of vintage photographs in Richmond, Virginia when she found four sets of “transparency slides”.
She took them home to scan them and was “shocked” at the level of detail.
“I thought ‘holy wow they are beautiful’. I’d love to find the women or the photographer who took them.”
I have never been much of a horse person. A cat and dog person, perhaps, but not horse. I have mostly had a neutral interest in them. However, recently I discovered the excitement attending horse racing in southern Sweden. At Jägersro.
When photographers and objects meet things can happend that will leave traces. For very long. When Mary Ellen Mark met Amanda they formed a relation that still talks to us. Mary with her photography and Amanda with her expression, attitude. Here is the story about what happaned to Amanda. She is still thinking about the moments for the photographs and her contact with the photographer. The interesting article from npr.
Here is also a link from The Guardian about more of Mary Ellen Marks famous photographs. Of course the one with Amanda is included.
People are everything!
To me there is no question, but, not all photographs are art. So what is and what isn´t? It is up to you, and me of course. These are 2 articles from The Guardian about the subject. What would you be prepared to pay for that you couldn´t do yourself?
I would like to reblog this from Tommy Too since the thought is very interesting. We see different things looking at the same thing. All according to who we are and what our interests are.
I found these shapes, forms, patterns in Horten, Norway recently. Did other people also see the same things as I did?
I made these photographs some years ago, as you can see. Not knowing, or even dreaming, what was going to happen to the world. This is a series photographed with a small Minox 35mm camera, big as a cigarette box. Nothing special today, but back then it was. The series is all about Empire State Building. Seen from various positions in New York.
You can see that these projects, themes, that I am working on is not something new. Concentrating on a theme I try to see things from as many different views as I can.
Just as you press the button it becomes a thing of the past. Sometimes more than you can imagine.
I have not visited NY for many years. It would be great to go there again and to work on a new series.
This picture of Empire State Building is special. It was made leaning my camera against my shoe. Not knowing precisely what I was aiming at. This is one out of 5 exposures. People passing were looking at me wondering what I was doing.
