Rome-based Italian photographer Alessio Trerotoli captures the melancholic beauty of rainy days in his fine art photography series, Raindrop Blues. Believing raindrops can be compared to a blues song, as they “fall with a repetitive but fascinating rhythm,” Trerotoli aims to transport his viewers into a dreamlike reality where “rain seems to fall on everyone.”
Made by superimposing glass-printed photographs of rain onto a background images, Trerotol’s rain photos were inspired by Bob Marley’s quote, “Some feel the rain. Others just get wet.” He explains, “I want to create evocative images where every element – the street, the sky, the characters, the viewer – is involved in a romantic and, in at the same time, a melancholic feeling.”

Here Far Away
Pentti Sammallahti for the first time, we are able to appreciate the breadth and scope of this Finnish photographer’s masterful work — in a book that spans more than 40 years of exquisite black-and-white photographs.
http://fqwimages.com/time-dimension/ Photography is a medium that is famous for freezing time. The word snapshot suggests that a tiny slice of time is recorded for posterity. But we do know that time is also a dimension, like length, breadth and width. In fact, physicists have a model called space-time: suggesting that time is part of a continuum […]
JR | JR – Artist
JR owns the biggest art gallery in the world.
He exhibits freely in the streets of the world, catching the attention of people who are not typical museum visitors. His work mixes Art and Act, talks about commitment, freedom, identity and limit.
After he found a camera in the Paris subway, he did a tour of European Street Art, tracking the people who communicate messages via the walls. Then, he started to work on the vertical limits, watching the people and the passage of life from the forbidden undergrounds and roofs of Paris.
In 2006, he achieved Portrait of a Generation, portraits of the suburban “thugs” that he posted, in huge formats, in the bourgeois districts of Paris. This illegal project became “official” when the Paris City Hall wrapped its building with JR’s photos.

BBC News – Tom Wood’s men and women.
… To many in the business Wood is a true photographer and held in high regard. One that has dedicated his life to his art and has cut no corners nor bent to prevailing trends. He is often classified as a documentary photographer, but he tells me quite forcefully that is not the case. “I am not trying to document anything, I am asking a question. It is more about deciphering and transforming. You don’t call a poet, a documentary poet, because they write about life, so why a photographer?”
It is that exploration of the subject and what stimulated him to make a picture that is of such interest, a contest between the form and the content. “When the stuff is too journalistic and documentary then it is journalism, if it is too conceptual and arty then that is another thing, but where the two meet – that is interesting.” …
“You are after this intangible thing which is not a document. You can photograph the same face 50 times and 49 are not interesting, but one is and it goes to another place.
“I wanted to allow that time as a gestation period, each picture should be a discovery. It is about asking a question, you don’t know which are the great pictures just like that.”
