The image is spirit, matter, time, space, time for eyes. Traces are tests of ourselves and the sign of a culture that lives constantly rhythms that govern memory, history, standards of knowledge.” – M.Giacomelli

“For me, photography represents a wonderful means to communicate and, at the same time, to give the viewers the chance to feel emotions. I am not quite sure if it’s me who is looking for the themes or if it’s the themes themselves who are looking for me. Yet, whenever such an encounter happens, a picture arises, almost perfectly within myself and with my personality.” Pierre Pellegrini

On looking closely at the genesis of Sylvie Bonnot’s work, we begin to realize that the photography is at first, if not a pretext, at least an auxiliary to a walk through a landscape, to pace up and down a territory, to submerge there physically, to merge into it, to embody it. And so, she has crossed alone through the Irish landscape in all weathers, for several years. When she photographs houses and natives there, it seems, in spite of a perceptible empathy, that we do not leave even for a second, the theme of the landscape. When she returns from these periods of immersion, she develops and hoards hundreds of photos, that she sometimes enlarges, even if, for most of the time she amasses them in boxes that she makes for that purpose. Which could be a way for her to appropriate, to contain and to own the territory she has just walked through. [Extract : Text – ‘Eros is a rock’ – Hubert Besacier, 2008]

Maria Stromvik is an amateur photographer who started photographing in the summer of 2009. She grew up by the seaside in southern Sweden, and the sea – as well as water in other forms – is a recurrent theme in many of her photographs. The choice of working in black and white was never really a choice. Monochrome felt like the only natural way to portray an almost abstract, almost surreal, reality in which light and lines – or other simple shapes – become the sole components. She is trying to create black and white photographs that leave ample room for the imagination, and a considerable amount of space for the viewer to fill with his or her own interpretations. – [Extract : Maria Stromvik-Bio]

Tom Mitchell : ‘Iceland – The South Shore’ (Video)

::

::

November, visiting Iceland’s South Shore. At that time of year, it’s a dark, desolate place.

Would love to go back in summer and film a contrasting video to this one.

Filmed with a Canon 550d + Sigma 24mm 1.8 prime lens.

Edited in Adobe After Effects + Final Cut Pro.

“To be sure the landscape can’t run away, and yet I always fear that it may. [Sometimes] I must set up my tripod, so I worry that the landscape may disappear the next second and I don’t stop keeping an eye on it while I get prepared. Then, when pressing the shutter, I hold my breath. These moments are the greatest joys in my life, as if I were undressing the most beautiful woman in the world—that is, if she will allow herself be undressed. If the photo is a success, it means that she was willing. If not, it has been a lovely dream.” – Mario Giacomelli

“A photo isn’t only what you see, but also what your imagination adds to it. My own imagination may add something else, a third person’s something else again. But does it matter? What matters is the contact between us, the fact that we talk about trees losing their leaves, about objects we crush underfoot without realizing it, about that house dying gently, abandoned by its owner, even though it’s the house where he was born, where he learnt to cry and to laugh.” – Mario Giacomelli
