The hallmark of a true scientist is that You change Your mind when (new) data and evidence comes to light
Compare that to the rock hard dogma of religions and cults

Changing your mind due to evidence is admirable. Bill Nye changes mind on GMOs; now in favor.

Dark Digital Fashion Photography
Savage Blue

I did a deep dive into my archive one evening, and ended up sitting there until the early morning, since I rediscovered so many images that I had forgotten.

Some of these images I re-worked a bit – adding a faux-poloroid flair using the powerful and fun editing tool Exposure 7 by AlienSkin

I’m sometimes asked if I would ever consider shooting analog again and my answer is always an empathetic NO!.

The speed, ease and flexibility of digital vs. the cost of analog makes that a very easy decision for me to take.

I’m fond of saying that there is a “ghost in the digital machine” by that I mean that those wonderful accidents I used to have in the analog process happen in the digital workflow as well – to me there  is no difference there.

Name Your Fear

This piece is a reflection on change and fear - why do we fear the unknown and unfamiliar so much? 

It took me a very long time to muster enough courage to take the plunge, but now, a bit later, I realise that I could never ever have become what I am now without taking that “risk” (which in reality, looking back at things, wasn’t a risk at all.)

By embracing and adopting this new thing (I will tell You what it is in a moment)  I have transcended and become larger that before. I now can do things I couldn’t even dream up earlier.

Transformation!

Seth Godin wrote on his blog that  _“Everything is overpriced - until it’s not. Real estate, fine art and start-up investments have something in common: the good ones always seem too expensive when we have a chance to buy them.”_  

By that I believe he means that You have to not just believe in Yourself and what you do but rather more importantly that it doesn’t really matter.

The barriers are all inside our own heads, by discarding our current mindset based on fear and adopting a positive outlook we will be able to get what we want.

Now, I do not mean that automagically things will materialise out of thin air - I really hate all that mumbo-jumbo about channeling and “Laws of Attraction” - I’m sure You know what I mean.

What I mean is that visualising Yourself having the success or positive outcome makes it easier to relentlessly start taking action.

Action taking Is the only way forward!

AVEDON CAPOTE - OBSERVATIONS
SIGNED 1ST. EDITION WITH ORIGINAL SLIPCASE

I'm selling my copy of Richard Avedon's probably most sought-after book - Observations - Designed by Alexey Brodovich and with the famous foreword by Truman Capote on eBay.

http://www.ebay.de/itm/161751075102?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

This copy is in very good condition, considering it's age - published in 1959 - by Simon & Schuster.   This is a SIGNED copy with the original slipcase which makes this a rarity and a true collectors item.   If You are a collector of classic photo books this is probably one of the 5 most sought after and influential books there is.

This book re-defined portrait and fashion photography and firmly established Avedon as the leading portrait and fashion photographer of his time.  This work brings together 2 Titans of American pop-culture, famous writer and novelist Truman Capote and Art Director and Designer Alexey Brodovich.   Not long after Capote and Avedon finished their work on Observations, they again collaborated in documenting the story of a brutal murder in Kansas - In Cold Blood.

You can currently find an similar copy for sale at Baumans Rare books for $1.000,- 

http://www.baumanrarebooks.com/rare-books/avedon-richard-capote-truman/observations/83609.aspx

American photographer Richard Avedon’s first book, ‘Observations,’ was published in 1959. It was included in Andrew Roth’s ‘The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the 20th Century (PPP Editions, 2001), now itself a seminal work on the history of the photographic book.

Having begun to take photographs during the Second World War, where he served in the Merchant Marine, Avedon became chief photographer of ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ in the late 1940s under the watchful eye of Creative Director Alexey Brodovitch. This book is considered by many to be the pinnacle of  Brodovich's book designs. Avedon helped redefine and elevate fashion photography to an art form, frequently taking his models out of the studio.

But Avedon’s first book did not focus on his fashion work, but on his iconic and penetrating portraits. In the 150 pages that form ‘Observations,’ with comments by the great American writer Truman Capote, we encounter the likes of Charlie Chaplin, John Huston, Alfred Hitchcock, The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Arthur Miller, Pablo Picasso, Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, Judy Garland, Igor Stravinsky, Katherine Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Louis Armstrong, Humphrey Bogart, Buster Keaton, and many others.

“Richard Avedon set the standard for portraiture and fashion photography in the second half of the 20th century… His photographs… virtually jump off the page with a signature brand of visual impact” (New York Times). “Observations is the culmination of a creative collaboration between Avedon and Alexey Brodovitch that began in 1945, when the imperial art director hired the 22-year-old photographer… as the youngest member of his team at Harper’s Bazaar” (Roth, 148). Avedon’s “later adoption of a seamless white studio background for most of his fashion and portrait photography was at least partly inspired by Mr. Brodovitch’s characteristic use of ‘white space,’ a means of making the subject seem suspended and weightless on the page” (Times).

Book Condition: Very Good - with minor rubbing on the covers. Very small library sticker on the inside:  "From the Library of Roger M. Thayer"     Slip Case Condition: Very Good - some rubbing and minor dust soiling . Overall a very good reading copy -- tight, bright and internally clean. I have taken a detail photo of what is the biggest flaw - a tear on the top right corner of the slipcase - probably traces of a removed sticker. This flaw is very common and present on all copies of this book I have seen...

John Malkovitch and photographer Sandro Miller recreates iconic images

http://edelmangallery.com/exhibitions-and-projects/exhibition-pages/2014/sandro-miller-malkovich,-malkovich,-malkovich-homage-to-photographic-masters.html#?id=3312

Well I always had a soft spot for John Malkovitch after movies like "Being John Malkovitc" but this is even a step further. 
Hilarious and equally genius!

Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters honors photographs that have impacted Sandro. Pieces include Irving Penn’s photograph of Truman Capote in a corner; Bert Stern’s photographs of Marilyn Monroe; Dorothea Lange’s image of a migrant mother; Robert Mapplethorpe’s self-portrait with a gun; Annie Leibovitz’s iconic image of John Lennon and Yoko Ono; Diane Arbus’s classic photo of a boy with a hand grenade; Richard Avedon’s beekeeper, among many others.

He is drawn to the field of fashion photography, where he feels there is a constant hunger and need for innovation and search for new expressions.
Pop-culture with all it's facets plays an important role in his universe, be it film, design, the "business" itself, new digital media, new technology and so on...
Thriving on the ephemeral and fleeting aspects of this sometimes fickle environment he tries to turn these "limitations" into opportunities
"Edgy Elegant" is a look that Per Zennström is aspiring to which means a dose of classic fashion photography + a twist to give the edge.

"If the girls look beautiful You can do almost anything after that"

Per spent his assistant years in NYC, after that he went on to start his career in Paris where he lived and worked for 13 years.
Currently based in Berlin, where he thrives on the unique, urban atmosphere...

I'm a very happy parent sending my kid to BKIS. There are a number of things I really like about BKIS one is the very, very strong parent community around the school and the sense of engagement from the whole school community, teachers, staff & parents.
