Successful London fashion retoucher Becci Manson has helped to assemble an international effort to rescue photos in Japan damaged by the Tsunami. I’m gonna be honest, it may just be the finals stress getting to me, but I teared up at this video.
As you may or may not know, your dear classmates, Colleen and myself, are studying at the Lacoste campus this quarter! Studying at other campuses is a must! Not only do you learn about other cultures, but you get to experience so many new things, as well as having the opportunity to study with students from the other SCAD campuses! We’ve only had class for a week, and we’ve already travelled to so many different places surrounding Lacoste! Here are some pictures from our adventures! The gallery includes images from both of us. We hope you enjoy!
Stay posted for more updates!
Jackson Fine Art recently hosted a free portfolio review for photographers, and now they’ve teamed up with WonderRoot Community Arts Center for a gallery show. The show, on display at WonderRoot in Reynoldstown, features 16 artists who participated in the review, and will run throughout October. The opening party is next Thursday, September 29th at 7 PM and will be followed by an Artists Lock-In, in which the awesome facilities will be open to the public. Hope to see you there!
Want to win a trip around the world? How about a feature in PDN? New York City exhibition? Then you have until Friday to enter the One Life Photography Competition. The judges are looking to see your story (and growth: helloooo seminar class) through the categories of People, Places, Things, or Ideas. At $10/image to enter, you can at least put up one, and we can help promote each other for the People’s Choice award. Good luck everyone!

Barely. This is Luca Pierro, an Italian artist who creates incredible self-portraits using different materials (and minimal ‘shopping) to distort his face and figure. Drawing from inspirations such as his mother, Caravaggio, and nature, he ends up with some mind-blowing photography. Oh, and he says he’s usually just using a flash and umbrella (it’s not the gear…). Check out an interview with him from mymodernmet.com here, and click the photos to link to his website.
Reminded me of you, Betsy!
I tried taking photographs with some studio lights and in a different atmosphere. I really like what I have got going on in these images and I feel like it would be possible to integrate one or two into my series, with the addition of more images that would be similar. I realize that they’re different from what I have been showing, but I am really happy with the direction it’s going. What do you guys think? I think I definitely need to play with it more to find a way to really integrate images like these into my series. (I’m still working on the color)
P.S. These are all used with pantyhose, still.
Here are new images I’ve come up with since critique yesterday. I’m getting excited, and slightly relieved. Parts are starting to fit together. tell me what ya think!
the rest are Saran wrap with Vaseline on it 😀
