Photography’s Bond with Graphic Design

William Klein

…. As the museum writes, the dialogue between photography and graphic design “intensified between 1945 and 1969, and became ever-more experimental.” The result, inspired by the Bauhaus directive to bring together fine art and applied arts, was a generation who “saw creators as social agents furthering a dynamic expression of the contemporary.”

Portrait Photographers’ Favorite Camera Lenses

Portrait Photographers’ Favorite Camera Lenses

By Theano Nikitas

When it comes to developing a personal style in their portraits, many photographers stray from the medium telephoto lenses that have traditionally been the staple of portraiture. Because photographers today are diversifying their clientele and workload—shooting an editorial portrait one day, a fashion show the following week and a commissioned portrait on the weekend—it’s often difficult to nail down the “best” portrait lenses. We spoke with several photographers and asked them to name their favorite lenses for shooting portraits, and when and why they prefer one piece of glass over another. We’ve alphabetically organized the lenses by brand name so you can quickly see what’s hot for your camera.

10 Retro-Style Cameras and Accessories

 

10 Retro-Style Cameras and Accessories.

JUNE 05, 2013

 

By Theano Nikitas

 

Camera styles, like those of clothing, are cyclical. Right now, we’re in an age of retro and vintage gear that call to mind the days when rangefinders ruled and film was very much alive and well. But just because a camera is built around the latest technological advances doesn’t mean that it can’t have a retro look and feel. The same goes for accessories—from camera straps to individual camera cases to larger bags that can accommodate the latest DSLRs and lenses.

Here’s a look at a handful products that may appear to be retro but are, for the most part, built to get today’s job done.

Giles Revell, Photographer

Giles Revell, Photographer

Influenced by fine art and conceptualism, Giles Revell’s work is an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of graphic, ideas-based imagery and the different ways in which photographic images can imply form, surface or texture via the simplest means. In addition to ‘pure’, traditional photography, Giles’s personal work continues to explore the creative potential of digital technologies.

Represented by the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London, Giles has won numerous awards for his work, which has been published and exhibited around the world. Alongside his personal work, he continues to produce images for commercial clients such as the English National Opera (ENO), Mercedes, Nike, Levi’s and Sony.

Giles’ work is featured in March 2010’s Elephant Magazine, available to order from Magma
