Ella Uzan

“I was born in 1984 in Israel and up until 2 years ago I never would have guessed that photography was to become such an obsession for me.

My passion for taking pictures started to bloom rapidly after graduating from Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem where I studied animation for 4 years. My artwork has been displayed in various galleries around the world and can be seen in different popular fashion magazines as well as in online style sites and inspirational blogs.

My photos endeavour to transmit a particular atmosphere and emotional impact.
I achieve these qualities through the use of different combinations of lights, colours and via classic manipulation techniques that I have picked up over the years. ” (From Ella Uzan Bio on her website)

* I got to know Ella a few years ago thru the poplar social networks we are all accustom to, we never actually met but we did mange to establish  an online friendship which circles our main passion in life, visual expression!

I’ll be honest saying that I truly love her work, it is fresh, colorful and full with emotions, I simply cant get enough of it.  Every time she shares a new series with me I need to pick my jaw up  from the floor, so simple yet so effective, so clean and vibrant yet so hidden and mysterious, it’s basically great photography and I wish her success on her path of self explorations with and without the camera, I really believe she is going to become pretty famous in this field and I for one, will be watching closely…

Simply Delicious! Check more of her style on her website here: ELLA UZAN

Irina Werning

16 Nov

Irina Werning, a photographer born in Buenos Aires, started an interesting project called “Back to The Future” where she takes someone’s old photo and recreates the same old scene with the same person many years later. While it might not sound too complicated, she is unbelievably accurate – it seems that she just found some old and young look-alikes and shot two pictures on the same day.

I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future..by the way, this project made me realise Im a bit obsessive…  (taken from boredpanda.com)

This project must have taken some time I believe, the images are so close to the original, I love the process Irina took, trying to really nail it on the head in each photo, much respects! Great project!

Irina Is a very talented photographer, she has many more projects under her wing, check her site HERE for proof!

Jerry N. Uelsmann

6 Apr

The integration of the real and the surreal in his work is unique. You know a Uelsmann when you see one because he seamlessly grafts composite images in black and white. His photographs combine several negatives to create surreal landscapes that interweave images of trees, rocks, water and human figures in new and unexpected ways.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, US, on June 11, 1934,  He attended public schools and was never a particularly diligent student. During his high school years he became interested in photography as a serious vocation. Uelsmann enrolled at the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1953, received his B.F.A. in 1957 and his M.S. and M.F.A. from Indiana University in 1960. He taught at the University of Florida from 1960 until recently, and held the position of Graduate Research Professor at UF since 1974. Uelsmann received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1967 and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in 1972. He is a founding member of the American Society for Photographic Education, a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, and has served as a trustee of the Friends of Photography.

Uelsmann’s work has been exhibited in more than 100 solo shows in the United States and abroad over the past thirty years. His photographs are in the permanent collections of numerous museums worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, The International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Biblioteque National in Paris, the National Museum of American Art in Washington, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the National Galleries of Scotland, the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, Arizona, the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, Japan, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the National Gallery of Canada, and the National Gallery of Australia.

Impressive photographic collection by Robert Piontek.

“In Tiny Planet is special way off viewing gold “projecting” has panoramic image. What you see in each image is the entire scence ace I saw it, ace I was standing in the middle off the planet. Forwards, backwards, left, right, and down. Almost everything I could see from each hiring is recorded in every image. The only thing you miss has small share off what was directly overhead.”

Robert Piontek uses a stitching program called hugin. Young stag is the Web address:
