Tom Chambers' portfolio Illumination

"Renaissance artists affirmed the transformational nature of light in their classical paintings. Taddeo Gaddi and Giotto di Bondone of the Renaissance period painted breathtaking frescoes in which light created dramatic effects. Artists, such as these masters, inspired me to create photomontages that highlight the aesthetic power of light. Following recent travels in Italy, I was awed by the metaphysical nature of Tuscan light. The unique light accentuated the brilliance of the Renaissance artistic and architectural masterpieces. I came away with the understanding that light exposes possibilities and opens the mind to seeing things differently. Illumination, a series of photomontages, illustrates stories about personal beliefs and seeing things in a different light." — Tom Chambers

Photographer's Showcase Interviews: Kevin Erskine

"We see a massive variety of work while reviewing photo-eye submissions, I get a bit excited when something extra special comes in, which is how I felt when I first looked at the images in Kevin Erskine's Supercell portfolio. The Photographer's Showcase jury was equally impressed — Erskine's panoramic images capture the fierce overwhelming beauty of supercell thunderstorms in striking color. Recording these spectacular storms, the images are always framed with just enough of the earth visible to ground the viewer and — when combined with the scale of the prints (and now the oversized book from Hatje Cantz) — articulate the feeling of being dwarfed by the overwhelming force of nature."

A Closer Look — Animals That Saw Me

"In Animals That Saw Me Panar has crossed paths with a countless number of animals, creating a series of singular moments that allow the viewer to become part of that interaction. Many times there is a direct exchange between animal and photographer — a dog staring out of a second story window looking curiously perplexed at the man with a camera below. And in many cases it seems as though Panar and the animal he has photographed are caught off guard and trying to figure out their next move." — from Antone Dolezal's post on photo-eye Blog.

Redwood Saw by Richard Rothman


"As sentient animals, we arrogantly pride ourselves on our dominion over the land and its creatures. Entering the 21st century, the demands we have placed on the earth are reaching their limits. In the long view, after we are gone, the forest and animals will reclaim the Earth, and humans will likely become a footnote in Earth's long history. Richard Rothman's first monograph, Redwood Saw, tackles the thorny problem of our relationship to the planet." — Adam Bell from the review of Redwood Saw by Richard Rothman

 Featured Best Books of 2011
Leonie Hampton: In the Shadow of Things Leonie Hampton: In the Shadow of Things
"With these pictures, Leonie Purchas [Hampton] presents a new and innovative photographic approach to the human condition. The photographer chose to take an introspective look at herself through the members of her family. The resulting photos form a highly personal and emotional record of life in the Purchas household, in which both the photographer and the other members of the family show their vulnerability. By exposing this vulnerability, Purchas [Hampton] breaks through the distance that often separates photographer and subject. The camera shields and at the same time opens up a world that is entirely familiar, yet nevertheless reveals itself anew." — the publisher

Penelope Umbrico: Photographs Penelope Umbrico: Photographs
"Penelope Umbrico: Photographs offers a radical reinterpretation of everyday consumer and vernacular images. As the artist describes, she works within the virtual world of consumer marketing and social media, traveling through the relentless flow of seductive images, objects and information that surrounds us, searching for decisive moments — but in these worlds, decisive moments are cultural absurdities." — the publisher
