Friday Quote: Joel Meyerowitz

Posted by PF at 6:23 ...

“I think about photographs as being full, or empty. You picture something in a frame and it’s got lots of accounting going on in it – stones and buildings and trees and air – but that’s not what fills up a frame. You fill up the frame with feelings, energy, discovery, and risk, and leave room enough for someone else to get in there.”

Joel Meyerowitz

Aino Kannisto

Posted by PF at 6:59 ...

“I stage fictitious scenes which I capture with a camera. I play the persons in my pictures. But my pictures aren’t self-portraits in a traditional sense. The person in the picture is a fictitious narrator, as like a narrator in literature. My pictures are fantasy, representing an atmosphere or a tendency by fictitious persons.” – Aino Kannisto about her work

Aino Kannisto, born 1973, lives and works in Helsinki. She studied photography at the University for Art and Design Helsinki.

Friday Quote: Shen Wei

Posted by PF at 6:54 ...

As a portrait photographer, I really love the process of model hunting. I constantly am seeking a great face, unique charisma and a memorable personality, I pay a lot of attention to people around me and try to convince some to be my model.
Certainly, I think everyone is special in their own way. For most of time, I took portraits of whoever willing to sit in front of my camera, I can’t afford to miss any opportunity to create a good portrait, because sometime even a “boring” person can give me that most brilliant heartfelt moment, so you just never know.
