(Vis dėlto,) kas yra Lietuvos šiuolaikinė fotografija? | artnews.lt
lithuanian-only // Jurij Dobriakov pasvarstymai apie šiuolaikinę Lietuvos fotografiją, paminint “Lietuvos fotografijos mokyklą”, “Tarsi nebūtų rytojaus”, V. Michelkevičių, TWODICKS, Tadao Cern ir kitas iliustracijas. Verta paskaityti ne tik tekstą, bet ir komentarus (neįsijaučiant į dramaturgiją).
BEFORE THEY PASS AWAY
Before they pass away - Jimmy Nelson Huuuge project. J. N. photographed tribes all over the world. Mostly portraits and daily routine shots. The actual album is pretty pricey, but you can surf the website, which is well made. Some sort of visual wikipedia..
I just found out about Michael Northrup, but it’s funny awkward enough to share about him with you. If you like irony, you should find something interesting here.
5 years ago I was interrailing across Europe. By that time i was obsessed about double exposure with my Nikon F100. This one is taken in Switzerland, near Bern, 2008. We were staying here for a few days. Owner was away at that time. It’s close to railway (not noisy at all) and neighbors insist on growing flowers in the balcony, otherwise the whole house looks not good enough and it influences the price of real estate.

The Power of Gaze in the Photography of Rineke Dijkstra - ARTES MAGAZINE
"Everyone believes that he or she has control over how much of the self is showing, and how effectively the rest is hidden. Dijkstra’s gaze asks those that gaze back: “If I can’t conceal myself, how can you be sure that you are able to, either?”"

“What’s really become apparent is just how important curated discovery tools are for consumers. The pushing and recommending engines of this huge volume of work, how it continues to develop intelligence around your own personal tastes and how it delivers that content to you, that is the next big thing we need to improve.” Joseph Beyer
Exactly. Content is already there, we just need to organise it properly. Emphasis on curators, critics, thinkers.
Transformation by Roman Sakovich
"Transformation" is a series by Roman Sakovich where he explores Lithuanian’s desire to become westernized. I guess I like it because of the calm and rational esthetic logic.

My photo “Parallel universes” is selected as one of the highlights in 2013 by eFoto.lt. Although not a recent work, I’m trying to settle and find my place in super-fast-and-mega-wast photouniverse.
Also check other works, there are several really good photos (or series).
