The big picture: a suited man on Brighton beach

Paddy Summerfields eye is caught by a man in a suit enjoying a quiet moment in 1970s Brighton On a beach in Brighton some time in the mid-70s, Michelangelo Antonionis Blow-Up, Ingmar Bergman, Robert Bresson. Taking pictures is the easy part the hardest thing is to make the book about something, Summerfield says. Unlike films, however, photographs offer slow time: You can go at your own pace and examine each individual frame. You see a photograph, and its permanent.

Mark Mawstons best photograph: Yoko Ono’s electrifying power

She came on stage with a black silk bag over her head and walked straight into the mic stand. It didnt ruin anything though. The crowd were in raptures I took this shot of Yoko Ono 14 years ago, in 2005 at bagism a practice she and Lennon engaged in as a way to deindividualise speakers and emphasise their message by wearing a nondescript bag over their heads. So she came out with this black silk bag obscuring her vision, and walked straight into the mic stand. It didnt ruin anything though. The crowd were in raptures. In a split second when I managed to take my eyes off her, I realised that Sean Lennon, her and Johns son, was …

Philip Pococks best photograph: Miriam the Berlin punk and her rat Bestia

The punks were sceptical of my presence. One guy even headbutted me. In retrospect, I think it was a sign of acceptance I was in my mid-20s when Cornell Capa, director of the International Center of Photography in New York, recommended me for a job documenting life in the American sector of Berlin while the city was still divided. As a young photographer, I was so nervous. All of these senior German officials were swanning around my studio inspecting my work. I blurted out that I wasnt American, that I was born in Canada, almost like a confession. I felt I had to tell them. They just looked at me quizzically, laughed and started speaking in German. I have no …

20 Of The Most Iconic Photographs And The Cameras That Captured Them

One of the most iconic photos in history is, without a doubt, The Burning Monk. We’ve all seen this photo in school books, on the news, and in most-famous photo lists. The monk’s name was Thích Quảng Đức. He self-immolated in Saigon on June 11, 1963, to protest the South Vietnamese government’s persecution of Buddhists. The person who captured this selfless sacrifice for the greater good was photographer, Malcolm Browne. He passed away in 2012 but his legacy lives on. “I was thinking only about the fact it was a self-illuminated subject that required an exposure of about, oh say, f10 or whatever it was, I don’t really remember. I was using a cheap Japanese camera by the name of …

I Show How Much Berlin Has Changed Over The Years

Many “anchors” in the city landscape like old houses and trees help to build a bridge to another time and to better relate to the people that lived in it. Finding the exact position, where another person took a photo many years ago has become a very rewarding passion of mine. I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do! The photo of 1936 shows Adolf Hitler delivering a speech on 1 May 1936. Labor Day was renamed to “National Holiday of the German People” by the Nazis. While a lot has changed since then, one can spot the same stains on the columns of “Altes Museum” in the photo of 2019, which makes me feel like this …

30 Animal Panorama Fails That Are So Bad Theyre Good

It turns out that there are tons of panoramic pictures of these ‘mythical’ animals all over the internet- from limo horses to Cerberus dogs and multiple-legged cats, this photo technology seems to have no mercy when it comes to eerily disfiguring our beloved pets. Of course, without any fault of these innocent animals who just cannot seem to hold a pose or want to photobomb. #2 Panorama Doggo Gone Wrong #3 Split Kitty Some of the earliest panoramas were created during the civil wart, taken by George Barnard for the Union Army. They were printed from two or more wet-plate negatives that had been exposed in a conventional camera. The wet-plates were coated with an emulsion, sensitized and exposed.The camera …
