Hmmm, not finding what I was looking for but somehow I stumbled across Adam Magyar’s work which I had seen a few years ago and forgot about. This image is from his series Stainless and can be viewed on his site through an interactive loupe that allows you to see it at full size. You need to check out the expression of the guy looking out the subway door just to the left of the American flag in the center of the shot, it’s priceless. All the projects on his sight are really great but I think the Stainless video piece is my favorite. No on second thought they are all worth looking at, I can’t decide which is my favorite.
Since I was talking about Joel Sartore in class today and yesterday I was discussing a series that National Geographic had done, titled The Last of the Last, this seemed like a pretty logical post to go with today. If you get a chance read the article How We Decide Which Species to Save, I heard some talk about it on NPR and it was pretty interesting.
My controlled lighting (studio lighting) class is working on portraits right now and I just saw these images by Toby Dixon. Not only are they beautiful but they are over the top on the styling, this work is all done in makeup and wardrobe, there is no Photoshop involved. At the moment he only has two of them on his blog and it looks as if they are shot for a campaign that has not been published yet so he is pretty hush-hush about the work. Note to all the students out there, I would be hesitant to ever put work up online before a client goes to press with it.
