Those pictures are Sydney Police's archive and were taken in the 20's. I think that every one of thoses portait are beautiful. I wish I knew what these people have done to be arrested, it would be even more interesting !
Tomasz Pluta, aka Luxogram, is from Poland and works with an old Kiev 88. I'm glad no one told him about the rule of thirds. Squared centred pictures are so much better !
Gregory Colbert's most famous work is probably Ashes and Snow. He travelled in India, Burma, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Dominica, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tonga, Namibia, and Antarctica to film and photograph interactions between human beings and animals. I must say the result is pure beauty.
Irene Suchocki is from Montreal. She went to Italy last year and her picture from the trip are just amazing.
Ailine Liefeld is fascinated by people and their expressions and can spend hours just studying them on public places. I think it show in her photos.
Macrophotography is usually not my favorite. But Magdalena Wasiczek prouved me wrong ! This photographer from Poland makes her garden looks just like a fairy tale.
With In Between, Gustavo Perillo uses windows of trains as frames : people captured are between two words. It's amazing how Gustavo created some poetry from the most common scene of life.
Jakob Wagner takes photos of citys (New York, Londres, Dusseldorf, Amsterdam...) in a quite unique way. I find those shots very powerful (and colorful) and I like the idea of a living city.
Danny Santos II is a weekend photographer who likes to shoot strangers in the streets of Singapore. He's been shooting street for about 2 years now. I wish I had the nerve to stop people in the street and ask for a picture like he does. But even if I succeeded, would I manage to capture regards with so much intensity ? I don't think so !
