Mitch Dobrowner's portfolio The Still Earth

"While photographing, the world gets quiet around me... things seem simple again — and I obtain a respect and reverence for the world that is hard to communicate through words. I get into a 'zone' where time and space seem hard for me to measure."—Mitch Dobrowner

photo-eye Gallery Picture of the Week
photo-eye introduces a new section of our newsletter wherein a photo-eye staffer picks one of their favorite pictures from the wealth of imagery on our website. This week, Daniel Espeset, Bookstore Assistant Manager, has chosen Pentti Sammallahti's Petrohan, Bulgaria, 2003.

"Pentti Sammallahti's photographs seem to reside in a space usually reserved for storybook illustrations. Lusciously printed on a small scale, extraordinarily detailed and gently toned, the work fosters a child-like curiosity. Each print rewards special attention by revealing an immense subtlety—subtlety especially evident in the impossibly anthropomorphic animals found throughout the work. This image, shot in the depth of the Bulgarian winter, could be a refreshing fantasy considering the brutal heat many of us have been enduring recently." — Daniel Espeset

Please call Anne at 505.988.5152 x 121 or email anne@photoeye.com for more information about this print or other Pentti Sammallahti works.

Shomei Tomatsu: Salaam Aleikoum (photographs of Afghanistan) Shomei Tomatsu: Salaam Aleikoum (photographs of Afghanistan)
"A photographer looks at everything," Tomatsu has written, "which is why he must look from beginning to end. Face the subject head-on, stare fixedly, turn the entire body into an eye and face the world. The human who bets on looking—that is a photographer."—Reference, Setting Sun: Writings by Japanese Photographers

Tomatsu's extremely scarce third book, issued by Shaken, the publishing house he started in 1967.

"Beauty is where it might be expected (a wall of sunny children's paintings, a tree house), but more often where it wouldn't be (a slightly deflated yellow ball in a cement play yard, a sledding hill without enough snow). Utopia is waiting in a patch of sun, a smudge of mud, a chalkboard message professing heavenly joy, a little bit of blood in the small nostrils of a boy baptized with everyday dirt."—the publisher READ MORE
