Best pictures come from thin air!

It is what a fab photographer said to me "Photographs are every were it just taking them" and
from another photographer said "Courage is a sign of lack of imagashion".
I have one problem with photographs, that is bravery to take pictures with out asking permishion. But that is because of one boy who semi-knocks out confudence such as life!

However whiled taking my favorite buskers this family watched and it looks good!

Carboot heaven!

Could you belive that there are amazing photography books at the carboot, people give books away for 5 pounds (american computer wont let me do the pound sound) anywqay I bought 150 years on photojournisum and Weegee book too :D! So plenty of night time reading know! and 1 month tommow till I go to London very excited! And it 9 months on the 24th till I leave school and enter the land of photography for real:D!
Revising now for physics now! So speech soon!


Ok another post on another photographer again

I'm now sounding like the guy off the fast show hehe (lightening great)! But...
I'm almost finished writing my artist research on Eugene Richards, his work is fantastic!
Secondly Henri Cartier-Bresson work is exscrisit and returned it last week before I got attached to the book. And third of all I've re-looked at Eve Arnold's work which when ever I look at it, it make
me feel warm and fussy... but completely different from photographers I have mentioned but all share one thing great photographs, lighting and framing!
Oh yes and Philip Jones Griffiths I was looking at his work just two days ago.

But here's the question who knows Nigel Henderson and were to find images? I've typed in his name in google images, ask and some other search drives but hardly any information on him and scarily any photographs but I do adore his work!

Robert Capa

I was sorting out the art rooms bookcase (as you do) when I had found a Robert Capa book!!!
It is so good his work and powerful, it is very amazing! I love his work and did you know he was born with 6 fingers... it was removed after birth and his brother was a photographer too! I didn't know that till today! I love it, it's so beautiful! The pictures that were burned (a bit) are still amazing and gives it a rawer, unique edge! It all fine and well seeing work on a computer screen (that I have done before and like so many others) but seeing it in a book make it better you feel connected by the images!

I know these are mad rants of an teenager. (Who by the way is rebelling agenced Photoshop at the moment.)

Robert Capa's work is just amazing once again!

School Asembaly

We had a hunky-dory assembly it was all about cameras!!!!! Which was great and very interning I told him lots of things about his camera. And the people next to me. I sound pretty smug and enthusiastic but I'm not. Just happy that I know quite a lot of things about cameras.

The A File

The photographers and work I love, hate and not sure of
These is from my not book of the week. And yes I am watch Hollyoaks and I'm hating it.
Day 1.
Came to Perpinyan , went to the Post ate chips and met Kent (who is a good guy) he wrote in my book. I when to the beach with Sue and Dad it was cool and I swam and ate coconut ice cream.
Day 2.
I went to the exhibishions I liked: Eugene Richards work and I met him he is so lovely and work is so strong and shoking once you work out you think 'God'. I love his early work too. And he wrote in my book too.
David Bernett his work is great the lighting is great and it is strong. He wrote in my book too.
Stanley Greene I like his work very much it is an inside of America in the 1980's. He wrote 'Auburt be safe in like.' I love it and so cool.
Viktor Drachey It was one of our favorites it was comical we thought it was refeshing to see, so different to some of the work there. Sadly he dosen't speak very much English but he was lovely!
Steve McCurry work is so vibrant and nice. It is strong and the lighting is great.
Callie Shell work is beautiful the lighting was great and framing is great. I like the picture of Obama and the shoes and it has his book in there its great.
Massimo Berruti his work is fantasticly brilliant, the lighting is great, so is the framing and it is so strong. He was really nice and wrote in my book.
I disliked Alexandra Avakian's work at first but it's grown on me and now I love it the lighting is great and it is so powerful.
I didn't like Brenda Ann Kennrally's work at all but what do I know I'm only 15 and shes won two awards anyway...
Later on I went to the screenings full of funness I love it, I took Nyaba Ouedtaogo's picture he was lovely.
Day 3.
I saw Walter Astrada's work which I loved it was so powerful. I wanted to go to his talk but we left our ID. I also saw Abbas' work which I loved. I loved who the gallery was layed out.
Zuami work and the Humanitan award i loved it competly it was all so strong.
I saw Miquel Dewever-Plana work was great and I liked Francois Le Diascorn's work but Dad didn't he said it was an unfinished story.
Day 4.
Dad broke his noise so I missed exhibishions and stuff. I then up set Jean Francois because he said "have you seen any good exhibishions" and so I said " No because..." and he walked off so I kinda upset him.
Day 5.
I saw Philip Blenkinsop who is the most amazing guy I know at the moment, I gave his a sticker because he killed his eye he wrote the most lovely work in my book. And Kabirdin I wanted to ask him really bad jokes but I didn't lukily he is such a cool guy.
And I met Stanly Greene how is great and called me Auburt.
Day 6.
I went to Callie Shell's talk which was great and funny and she wrote in my book. Them we saw Abba's I asked him if he was scared he said "Phicical courage shows a lack of imagionashion." he was cool.
Then it was the Getty Images Grant which was intessting I liked some of it and I loved Ed Ou work!
Day 7.
I went to Eugene Richards talk which was great. And opened my eyes alot. He signed my books.
Yep and that was my jam packed week in Perpinyana I would say more but I'm so tired from the late nights.
