It’s generally considered a good idea to wait until the 3 month scan before telling people you’re going to have a baby, just to make sure everything is ok. I’m terrible at keeping secrets, so after only a few weeks I told my boss at work that I was going to be a dad and his reaction was so priceless I instantly knew I had to capture the reactions of my close friends and family. We hadn’t been trying for a baby and I was 29, which for London is fairly young to have a child, so I knew I’d get some good reactions.Tom Robinson
Making photo’s is one thing, editing is the other. Control both and perfect picture will become in range. Recently I notice that perfection is boring. I think photography is about the beauty of imperfection. Maybe one should strive to perfection of imperfection. I started making photo’s at the age of 8. I took my mother’s old belly-camera from around 1950 to take some photo’s at my first school trip to the Zoo. The shutter speed was determined by the speed of your finger! Later on, it was done in the dark room. Nowadays life is easier with Photoshop. What camera equipment I am using? I can shoot with any camera. A camera is just a tool like paint brushes for a painter. Do you ever ask a painter which brushes he uses for his painting? I think only the results counts 😉Ben Visbeek
There are so many little things, parked around the house, objects that are often in the way and take time everyday to clear up. Every now and then I think that one day the absence of these objects will cause me a slight melancholy, as they are the mark of the presence of my son, who leaves these things behind as he grows. Today I decided to leave them in their creative disorder. and take some pictures.
Ci sono tante piccole cose, parcheggiate in giro per la casa, oggetti che spesso sono di intralcio e che richiedono del tempo per essere quotidianamente riordinati. Ogni tanto mi viene da pensare che un giorno l’assenza di questi oggetti mi provocherà una leggera malinconia, essendo questi un segno della presenza di mio figlio, che crescendo abbandonerà queste cose dietro di se. Oggi ho deciso di lasciarli lì, nel loro disordine creativo e di fotografarli.
I’ve photographed over 100 women for this series and I’m still amazed at how every woman’s shape shifts differently. While those nine months may feel like they’re going to go on forever, pregnancy is fleeting – I can’t imagine not wanting to document it.Alexa Garbarino
“My work has been described as victorian noir. For me it is a form of alchemy and poetry.”Daniel Murtagh‘s work explores the notion of presence, the experience of a person not merely seen but also felt. The influences of both film and painting combine to create a feeling of time suspended.
