One of the world’s most recognizable vertical city – Hong Kong – became subject to an interesting artistic endeavor. Photographer Michael Wolf‘s interpretation of the city was captured in a fascinating set of large scale color photographs entitled “Architecture of Density“. The verticality of the most densely occupied major city in the world inspired vertical, horizontal and square patterns that can be admired in the photographer’s works. Defined by a complex dynamics, these high-rise buildings

"Femmes Algériennes 1960". "..[photog/soldier] Marc Garanger was asked to take photographs of Algerian women and the portraits he produced are unlike most portraits. The women...were forced to pose before a photographer who was a serving French soldier and who was accompanied by other French troops." As well, "…many of the women had been veiled throughout their entire adult lives but to comply with French orders they had to unveil." Click through for more images and complete text.

In 1960, #garanger, a 25-year-old draftee who had already been photographing professionally for ten years, landed in #kabylia, in the small village of Ain Terzine, about seventy-five miles south of Algiers. Garanger’s commanding officer decreed that the villagers must have identity cards. “I would come within three feet of them,” Garanger remembers. “They would be unveiled. The women had no choice in the matter. Their only way of protesting was through their look.” #photography #portrait

Simply Beautiful: The Congo Of Africa Goes Pink The innovative (and as we’re about to find out) equally daring photographer Richard Mosse captured these starling images from the war torn territory of the Congo in Africa. Deep in the jungle war zone Mosse opted to use a rare (and now discontinued) military surveillance technique known as ‘Kodak Aerochrome’. What is it exactly? It’s a brand of film which has infrared ca...
Richard Mosse--In his latest body or work titled Infra, Mosse uses infrared film to show the civil war in Congo in an entirely different light.
This photo is not the result of Photoshop. It was made with infrared aerial surveillance film, originally developed for military reconnaissance. Richard Mosse, a 30-year-old Irish photographer chose to use this film out of its normal context, to explore how photography represents a place like Congo, a country ridden by conflict and war. Infrared light is invisible to the human eye, and so the work alludes metaphorically to the conflict.

Stephanie Sinclair, August 30, 2003 "I met Marzia in the burn ward of Herat Public Hospital in late 2003. She'd been married at the tender age of 9, and at 15, she set herself on fire after accidentally breaking her husband's television set. It was the first time I'd been to Afghanistan and would turn out to be the first time I'd meet someone who'd been married as a pre-pubescent girl. At the time, I didn't know girls were ever married so young—or that the consequences could be so dire. ...

The luminescent screen in the center of the composition, the architectural details and the seats of the theater are the only subjects in the photographs, and the unique lighting gives the works a surreal look, as a part of Sugimoto's attempt to reveal time in photography."

lens culture photo book review: Robert Frank, The Americans
In his lifetime, Robert Frank has made 25 films and published a dozen books. He will always be known for The Americans, however. Not only did it open the door for a new style of photography, but these are the images that showed us that life is not always beautiful. Sometimes life is hard and sad and, sometimes, it’s just boring and ordinary. No matter what the subject is, though, life is worth recording, as long as we remember what Frank said, “There is one thing the photograph must contain, the

via kottke.org/.... [the photo].. 'was taken by Josef Koudelka in Prague in 1968, just before the Soviet Union invaded and put a stop to The Prague Spring. To demonstrate the emptiness of the streets at noon, Koudelka stuck his wristwatch [actually another man's..] into the scene before shooting it. A simple, brilliant gesture that adds not only a temporal dimension to the photo but also a sense of solitary humanity in contrast to the empty streets.'
