Andy Gotts: Behind the Actors Mask

 

BBC News – Andy Gotts: Behind the actors mask.

Andy Gotts has been photographing celebrities for more than two decades, often in black and white, but always with imagination and an ability to bring out an aspect of the character of the sitter.

His most recent project, Behind the Mask, has seen him travelling the globe to photograph more than 100 actors and actresses who have won or been nominated for a Bafta (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award during the past 50 years.

Here’s a selection of the pictures, which are on show at Somerset House in London, from 20 January to 7 February, together with the photographer’s own comments.


Cig Harvey

Interview with Cig Harvey: YOU Look At ME Like An EMERGENCY

From one of the best photography blogs out there.

Sometimes you come across work you fall in love with, work that resonates with you in such a deep way, and you begin seeing the world through the lens and point of view of a great image maker.  I have been a fan of Cig Harvey’s photographs from the moment I encountered her way of seeing.  Cig is a visual painter, creating images that shimmer with color and gesture, that have the punctuation and staccato of red berries, purple finger nails, or a field of fireflies at night.  She speaks to memory, to moments, to quiet and beauty, and never loses her connection to the natural world.  Her work is a sensory experience, where you feel what she feels when she captured the dapple of summer sunlight on skin or the splash of water that is a color only our memories seem to hold.

I am thrilled to share that Cig has a new monograph, You Look At Me Like An Emergency.  The book is a spectacular autobiographical culmination of her relationships, experiences, and moments in her life.  Published by Schilt, You Look At Me Like An Emergency conveys the universal quest for personal identity and place in the world.

Cig recently moved to Maine where she lives with husband and baby.  She works as an editorial and fine art photographer and her work has been exhibited widely and is in the permanent collections of many major museums.  She was a recent finalist for the prestigious BMW Prize at Paris Photo and recently had her first solo museum show at The Stenersen Museum in Oslo, Norway.


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.
