This Week’s Photo – Prado Museum – Elliot Erwitt

Elliot Erwitt is probably one of my all time favourite photographers. His humorous cheekiness is apparent in all of his images and often hint at a deeper message behind them. He is the master of timing and his photographs often are full of irony and absurdity. Out of all the photographers of the last generation, I suspect he’d be the most fun to hang out with. This particular image, which I believe is from the series called Museum Watching is […]

This Week’s Photo – Pepper No. 30 – Edward Weston

This week’s photo is a classic Edward Weston photograph of a pepper that he took sometime in 1930s. To me, this image is all about shape and light. The shape is formed by the lines and curves that start and finish rather mischievously – often starting and finishing in obscurity. The curves that outline the pepper help form the shape of the pepper The light in this picture is also amazing. Illuminated from top right, the quality of the light […]

This Week’s Photo – Things Are Queer – Duane Michals

This week’s photo is actually a series of nine photographs shot by Duane Michael in 1973. Each photograph is part of a bigger narrative and all the photographs build upon the previous ones in surprising and unexpected ways. Robert Motherwell, 20th-century American painter once said that art is an experience, not an object. Things are Queer by Duane Michals provides the viewer with an experience. There isn’t a lot to write about this image – this one, in my humble […]

This Week’s Photo – Michael Kenna: Tree Portrait – Study 1

Big part of learning photography is looking at work from other photographers and allowing it to expand our perspectives and visual vocabularies. This is why I’ve decided to start a new weekly series simply called, This Week’s Photo (TWP). In this series, I’ll be exploring images from other photographers and a brief discussion around that image. I hope to explore how each photographer used the visual language to make the impact with that particular image. I hope you’ll find this […]
