Broad Peak, mucho mas que una montaña de 8000 metros. Tuve ayer la suerte de volver a encontrarme con Chavi, gran fotógrafo / montañero y mejor persona. Sinceramente, me impactó su diaporama, muy buenas imágenes, y gran música para ambientarlo, una delicia vamos.

Hell and Back Again

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

“From his embed with US Marines Echo Company in Afghanistan, photojournalist and filmmaker Danfung Dennis reveals the devastating impact a Taliban machine-gun bullet has on the life of 25-year-old Sergeant Nathan Harris. The film seamlessly transitions from stunning war reportage to an intimate, visceral portrait of one man’s personal struggle at home in North Carolina, where Harris confronts the physical and emotional difficulties of re-adjusting to civilian life with the love and support of his wife, Ashley. Masterfully contrasting the intensity of the frontline with the unsettling normalcy of home, HELL AND BACK AGAIN lays bare the true cost of war.”

A MUST see!

Murmurs, softly stated landscapes

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Via aCurator, arrived this work from Bill Schwab. It really made me slow down, take a breath and slowly examine each one of his images. Well composed, subtly textured: sand, water, leaves, plus nice film grain; make a really nice body of work. I encourage you to go and take a look!

Post-Processing in the digital age

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Si le dais a la fotografía, y trabajáis en digital es algo que tarde os temprano os platearéis.

¿Hasta cuanto es lícito procesar un negativo digital?

Este artículo, de British Journal of Photography, lo enfoca, bastante bien aplicado a la fotografía documental.

O Samba Que Mora em Mim

Friday, January 6th, 2012

Samba, color, buena fotografía – Marcelo Rocha, bailarines, calor, vida diaria, no carnaval, Río, Brasil.

“A felicidade do pobre parece
A grande ilusão do carnaval
A gente trabalha o ano inteiro
Por um momento de sonho
Pra fazer a fantasia
De rei ou de pirata ou jardineira
e tudo se acabar na quarta feira

Tristeza não tem fim
Felicidade sim”
A Felicidade – Antônio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius de Moraes
