Si-Chan Park is one of Peter Bialobrzeski’s students. Looks like Peter Bialobrzeski has built a new German photo powerhouse, this one not located in Düsseldorf. Check out Si-Chan Park’s most recent work.

Roger Richards, formerly a photojournalist (see my conversation with him), is now working on personal work. I quite like part one of his “Dispatch from the Empire”.

The interesting thing about Corey Arnold’s portfolio is that apart from some interesting imagery of overfishing, there are some unexpected gems (like the one above).

“In my photography, I usually focus on people and decisive moments, fleeting moments in time that happen and are gone. When I went back to Lebanon after this most recent war between Hezbollah and Israel, I went with the intention of photographing the people dealing with loss and reconstruction, hoping to capture these moments and expressions that will tell the story of what they have been through and how they are dealing with it.” - Rania Matar

At first, I wasn’t sure whether Randa Mirza’s On Media, Tourism and War Photography works. But then I realized that since I wasn’t living in a country ravaged by war and intermittently a tourist attraction, my view of things was probably a bit different.

During one of my last visits to the Chelsea gallery scene I thought it would be interesting to take photos of the reception areas in galleries, some of which feature wall-like structures. Needless to say, someone already did it: Andy Freeberg.

Deborah Guzmán Meyer’s Fact & Fiction portrays people and their fantasies of themselves. Note how things do stay quite realistic for the most part - unlike in, say, “Second Life”, the ultimate escape from reality, where everybody is a popular, sexy superhero.

I quite like Whitney Hubbs’ more recent work, for example nothing happens in june.

Since we’re at it today, compare Gregor Graf’s “Hidden Town” with Matt Siber’s “Untitled Project”. And also don’t miss Matt’s “Floating Logos”.

Rinko Kawauchi (also see this page) is a rising Japanese photography star, whose output I personally find quite hit-and-miss. There are lots of very beautiful photos amongst others that are… well… Update (29 May): There’s a nice interview with Rinko Kawauchi here.

Adam Nadel is a photojournalist, whose projects Portraits of Noncombatants and Rwanda Testimonies are both excellent and utterly compelling work. “My hope is for this project [Portraits of Noncombatants] to provide [a] counter-point and connect the viewer, without sensationalism and voyeurism, to the consequences of war, and to create an opportunity for the public to better comprehend the effect on individuals.” (Adam Nadel)

Lucinda Devlin’s two main series “The Omega Suites” and “Pleasure Ground” portray death penalty tracts and places of recreation, respectively. (Another site, that might load more quickly is this one)

Bruce Haley has been doing photojournalistic work for quite a while now. If you look at his Disfigured Landscapes, it’s quite interesting to note how one’s perception of those landscapes (shot in b/w) is a bit different from those photographed by, say, Edward Burtynsky (who uses colour film).

I was going to wait with linking to Kyle Cassidy’s Armed America until its actual publication date. However, given the most recent events, the website might provide some valuable insights.

Jehad Nga is a photojournalist, some of whose photojournalistic work you can see here. I discovered his immensely beautiful fine-art work at the 2007 Armoury show.

I saw images from Kunihiko Katsumata’s series “Skyline” at the 2007 AIPAD photo show, and was most impressed - the small samples online are hardly able to convey the actual beauty of the prints.

Reem Al Faisal hails from Saudi Arabia (she is a grand-daughter of the Saudi king Feisal) and is active as a photographer and writer. Many of her photo projects are centered on her faith, such as the series Hajj.

As far as portraiture goes, for me Sally Mann’s photos are as good as it can possibly get, and it’s nice to see a couple of web movies, courtesy of Newsweek magazine (so there are no follow-up questions that go a bit deeper), where she and one of her daughters talk about the photography and their relationship.

A lot of Eric Slayton’s photography deals with animals (and how we view them), whether real ones or fake ones. Also see this page.

I think you’ll have to make up your mind yourself about Jon Naiman’s work, because I can’t just decide what to make of it.

Dawn Roscoe’s work is quite interesting, especially her series “Exquisite Suburbia”.

I am usually not all that interested in fashion photography. But I like Aneta Bartos’s work, which is refreshingly different. She’s also one of PDN’s 30 2007.

Photo District News just published their 2007 list of 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch (am I quite glad they removed the previously used age limit…). Congratulations especially to Brian Ulrich, whose work you will be quite familiar with if you’re a regular visitor of this blog!

For those wondering what it takes to shoot a good portrait, have a look at Shauna Frischkorn’s Gamers portraits (also to be seen here). So maybe for a good portrait you don’t even need any interaction between photographer and subject? Also compare Todd Deutsch’s Gamers series and Philip Toledano’s.

Allyson Klutenkamper’s photography aims to visually represent emotional problems such as anxiety or depression - it thus does require more than casually glancing at it.

There has got to be a limit as to how far you can go with “typologies” - or maybe not? When I saw Andy Mattern’s remote controls I thought “Well, OK, typologies of remote controls… I haven’t seen that before, and maybe there’s a reason why”. However, his current work is quite a bit nicer and very well executed, and shooting at night adds a little extra flavour.

“Arriving in America with only $40 for a short visit, a young Dane, Jacob Holdt ended up staying over five years, hitchhiking more than 100,000 miles throughout the USA. He sold blood plasma twice weekly to be able to buy film. He lived in more than 400 homes - from the poorest migrant workers to America’s wealthiest families such as the Rockefellers. They not only gave him hospitality and warmth, but their continuing friendship to this day. He joined the Indian rebellion in Wounded Knee, followed criminals in the ghettos during muggings, sneaked inside to work in Southern slave camps and infiltrated secret Ku Klux Klan meetings as well as Republican presidential campaign headquarters.” (source)
