Project 3 Reportage research continued…

I have decided, that when looking at research, I am better off adopting a broad brush approach and looking at as many artists as possible. I will therefore only write a few lines on each one. Going in-depth into one photographer’s work may lead me down an alley, and I would rather gain a wider perspective on numerous people’s work.

Martin Parr

A mixture of a photographer and an artist. He works predominantly in colour but there are a number of black and white photographs on his Phaidon book entitled Martin Parr.

“FOR ME PHOTOGRAPHY IS MY LANGUAGE, TO ACCESS, TO COMMUNICATE, TO IDENTIFY AND MOSTLY TO MAKE IT HEAR. THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY I ONLY JOT DOWN MY HEART’S LANGUAGE. THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A PHOTOGRAPHER IS THAT I’M ABLE TO ARTICULATE THE EXPERIENCES OF THE VOICELESS AND TO BRING THEIR IDENTITIES TO THE FOREFRONT WHICH GIVES MEANING AND PURPOSE TO MY OWN LIFE”  Quote and tear sheet  taken from Akash, G (2014) Gmb Akash, Available at: http://www.gmb-akash.com/about.php(Accessed: 28/03/2017).

Rui Palha

“Photography is a very important part of my space… it is to discover, it is to capture giving flow to what the heart feels and sees in a certain moment, it is being in the street, experiencing, understanding, learning and, essentially, practicing the freedom of being, of living, of thinking…”

Vineet Vohra

His work is similar in appearance to Steve McCurry and has a touch of the Elliott Erwitt about it. See the image below for the Erwitt connection.

Bruce Gilden

His “faces” work is amazing. A touch of the Arbus mixed with McCurry. Bruce Golden is a Magnum Photographer. I have emailed him with a couple of questions. Let’s see if I get a response!

Robert Frank

A Swiss barn photographer concentrating on black and white images. Who wrote the Americans, a book I do not own, but want to do so, if it were not so expensive.

Elliott Erwitt

I have his book personal best, and the clue is in the title. Great black and white works with lots of humourous images of dogs. One of my all time favourite photographers.
