I shot this in June of 96 in Managua, Nicaragua on an off day from shooting a documentary. I was in the process of removing the Neutral Density filter when I saw one the girls move, I stopped, turned, and focused and got the shot, but even on 3200 speed film, it is a thin negative and an image I’m still working to perfect. 14 years later, though, it remains my favorite photograph I have taken.
Excellent link Evan! thank you!
@Inner Pattern: if you want to add a picture to the forum, just add a ! at the beginning and the end of your link! :)
Like I said in an earlier post I took a black and white photography class and it’s given me a much deeper respect for photographers and photography in general.
Here are two of my favorites. They are ‘newer’ photographers.
The first is by Nobuyuki Taguchi. He only shots black and white.I love his work.
Another photographer I like is Rune Guneriussen. His photography is in color only and he’s an acquired taste. He sets up objects like lamps etc and kind of gives them their own personality in a way.
@Inner Pattern: You’re welcome! :) nice pictures, i like the last serie with the lamps, it’s amusing!
@Uli Cain: nice composition, it’s a really good picture!
The great, Alfred Stieglitz
There it is. One of my favourite shots. FYI their not watching Avatar.
(That was an ordeal)
This should be the only kind of mail allowed in ones inbox!
I am a fan of Gregory Crewdson. His images look like miniatures.
The Weegee photo above is terrific. He was in some ways an accidental artist.
Classic Robert Frank.

[from wiki] Boulevard du Temple, Paris, IIIe arrondissement, Daguerreotype. The purportedly first picture of a living person (taken by Daguerre in 1838) The image shows a busy street, but due to exposure time of more than ten minutes, the traffic was moving too much to appear. The exception is the man at the bottom left, who stood still getting his boots polished long enough to show. Look closely and you will also see another man sitting on a bench to the right reading a newspaper. Also in the upper left hand side you can also see another man standing under the awning of the 3rd building from the left. What looks to be a woman standing under the street lantern at 10 o’clock from the man getting his shoes shined and another one in the big white building,1st row 3rd window down. Notice the child in the top floor window of the white building in front. Note that the image is a mirror image.
edit it’s very difficult to find the people in this photo..it was scanned in 2008…the best I can do is see the guy having his shoe shined and maybe the person sitting on the bench with the paper. better resolution on the wiki page direct
don`t know the name of the photographers :(
Eugene O’Neill and George M. Cohan – ‘Ah, Wilderness!’ (Edward Steichen, 1933)
I’ve always been fascinated with his portraits from the twenties and thirties, the way that the studio is so bare yet the light conjures up an environment unique to each subject.

August Sander (17 November 1876 – 20 April 1964)
Reminiscent of portrait as a vanity by Joel Peter Witkin
From Roger Ballen’s “Boarding House”
Chasing Butterflies: love those!
Ryan McGinley’s photos are amazing!
Actually, who likes Sigur Rós, the Icelandic band, already knows some of his pictures.

And Anthony Goicolea’s photos are among my favorite ones, @Algazarra!
Hey Daniel F, cool!
“Ryan McGinley’s photos are amazing!”
Indeed they are!
What happened with the photos I’ve posted? They just disappeared!
Daniel F.: sometimes Mubi just does not show the images: it’s not a bug, it’s a feature ;-)
I can see them, by the way :-)
Strange! The photographs of Roger Ballen I posted have disappeared too! What’s going on!
Anyways, here are some by Hannah Starkey. What I find most striking about her work is how she draws from and builds upon the legacy of the American painter Edward Hopper. All her work is highly staged and controlled and she’s mentioned cinema as a huge influence, particularly the work of Todd Haynes.
Keith Carter :)
a J&K original. it is a hoary marmot. we are doing a series of marmot photographs that will shame ansel adams and other famous photographers whose names you probably know and that we know too. because marmots get no respect. they are far more picturesque than horses or people. and you can eat them!
poor ole’ mother marmot… watching the last of the glacier melt away…
