Up until fairly recently, even Eugene de Salignac's own family did not know much about him. The family received a call from the Municipal Archives of the City of New York and discovered Eugene was the photographer of thousands of images. While he worked for the Department of Bridges, De Salignac shot the construction of the Manhattan and Queensboro Bridges among other things. This is just a small record of some of his magnificent photos. If you like these, you can get a book of his photos on Amazon.
Craig Cramer's Bloom Day Scans are a thing of beauty. Almost every month, Craig scans flowers in bloom. His scans produce a wonderful look at which flowers bloom throughout the year. I love how the colorful flowers are offset by a black background, creating amazing contrast. If you like these photos, feel free to buy his Bloom Day Scans 2012 calendar on Zazzle.
Awesome double exposure series by Lisa Bamford. Her use of double exposure makes recognizable buildings and monuments much more interesting. The best part is, the shots are all done in camera.
"I enjoy taking photographs because of the enormous creative scope it provides. I am generally attracted to simplicity in either subject or composition, which is down to my background and job as a graphic designer. I see the structure of photographs in the same way as I do a layout, and I like them to be easy to read. I'm also a bit of a magpie and so take inspiration from all sorts of styles of photography, and so will shoot different subjects in different ways. I'd get bored to tears if I had to design the same thing everyday and that translates to what I point my camera at.
I generally choose my travel destinations based on places I think will be photogenic as that's what I enjoy doing most while I'm away. I find making double exposures an effective way of producing interesting images of buildings or monuments that have been endlessly photographed. It also appeals to me as the images often look quite graphic and hopefully not like the usual tourist snap."
Wonderful photography series by Julien Mauve.
"A few months ago, I was hanging around in my grandparent's attic. What I found among other things was a box full of toys I used to play with as a child. Each of them reminded me of a particular moment of my childhood and I felt emotionally connected to them.
Instead of storing them back into their box, I tried to imagine what they could look like in our adult world. Going further than their power to generate nostalgia, toys offer those who animate them a marvelous power to reinvent the world."
Horst P. Horst is famous for his fashion photography, most of which was for Vogue magazine. Horst's method entailed careful preparation with lighting and props arranged in advance. It is easy to see why his photos are synonymous with elegance, style and glamour. If you like these, you can buy a book of Horst Portraits on Amazon.
In his series Billions, Ward Roberts captures the city of Hong Kong through amazing use of reflections. These reflections create a fantastic mixture of shapes, colors, and infinite dimensions. It feels like you are peering into a not so distant future.
