(1976) Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Chris Kovacs is an award winning photographer best known for his multiple exposure black-and-white photography. Chris is fascinated with science, particularly with quantum mechanics and the possibility of a multiverse, or multiple, parallel universes, which also sets the stage for his style of photographic works. Chris is also interested in exploring dreams, the subconscious mind and memory. Chris’ photography focuses primarily on scenes containing elements of architecture and people. Chris captures “in camera” multiple-exposures of the same scene from different angles and later combines several multiple-exposure photographs together to form a single image. When asked about his photographic style Chris responds “It’s Multiplexualization.” Multiplexualization is a term Chris has coined. It is the digital layering of many different multiple-exposure photographs to form a single image which deliberately depicts a dreamlike quality. Multiplex, in this case, means: many elements in a complex relationship, where ualization represents the single, final image–the deliberate dreamlike visual. All of the images featured on this website were taken with an iPhone 5s. Chris resides in Vancouver, BC, Canada with his wife and two sons.
Paula McCartney: A Field Guide to Snow and Ice | LENSCRATCH.
There are books created by photographers/artists filled with photography and then there are artist’s books that use the photographic image in new ways. Paula McCartney has a new monograph, A Field Guide to Snow and Ice, published by Silas Finch, that is a great example of changing how we look at images and it happens to be one of the most stunning and unique books I have seen in awhile. The book allows for new considerations of looking at photographs in a way that pushes and pulls the viewer, drawing us in and moves us along as we look at all things cold and frozen. The spine of the book detaches from the front cover and the book becomes an installation piece approximately 34 feet in length …..

“Large Welsh Fella with Camera
Father of two wonderful girls, Creative Director, film maker, obsessive photographer, painter and manic doodler.
I’ve been taking pictures most of my life, but started it a little more obsessively about ten years ago when i was filming a documentary for a charity in Ethiopia. I had an old Hasselblad film camera with me and between scenes I started to photograph everything around me. From that moment on I was hooked. The joy I still get from seeing an image projected onto ground glass, or the smell of developer is enough to keep me shooting with a smile on my face.
I love portraiture, though more recently I have started to enjoy photographing landscape. Combining the two is something I hope to develop even more.
I shoot 5×4 film, medium format, digital and infrared.”
It’s a beautiful clear night – the stars are dazzling the sky, the Moon hangs proudly above and Jupiter can even be glimpsed, millions of miles away in space. A majestic roof, fretted with golden fire; it’s the type of scene you’d want to remember forever. Capturing the wonder of the night sky on camera is easier than you think. Some of the most stunning astronomy photos have been taken by amateurs. So how do you go about taking a beautiful photo of space?
