This generation right now has to see what Herb Ritts’ work was about because it’s something that I think when you open the fashion magazines it’s definitely missing. — Naomi Campbell, 2012

HerbRitts10eRichard Gere, San Bernardino, 1977

Within a very short time, Herb Ritts attained the legendary status of a fashion-, celebrity-, portrait- and nude photographer. His, at first, private pictures of a young, still relatively unknown Richard Gere, bursting of strength while changing a tire helped establish the photographer’s career as icon photographer of the pop culture.

The New Leica SL by Ben Franke

Ben Franke is a New York-based German/American photographer, whose work focuses on movement across a range of athletic disciplines. Since 2008, Franke has been photographing parkour athletes, and began his ongoing series Parkour Motion in 2012. With this series, he aims to capture the energy and power of parkour athletes’ movements in a single still image. In the past year his work has appeared in The New York Times and was chosen for American Photography 30 and AP 31 editions. Here he talks about his recent use of the new Leica SL.

BenFranke10a BenFranke10b BenFranke10c… Q: There’s a ton of movement in the images. What is the white powder used? Can you tell us more about the decision to use this and how you achieved these shots? What was the inspiration behind it? Would you call this a signature look of some of your motion work?

A: The white powder is regular baking flour from the grocery store. My inspiration came from similar shots I had seen done with dancers in a studio, as well as the Holi Festival where colored powder is thrown. I wanted to apply that idea to parkour and shoot it outdoors, since parkour generally takes place in an outdoor environment. I suppose you could call this my signature look.

En voyage avec le Nikon CoolPix AW130 par Aurélie Monod
AurélieMonod10aAurélie Monod, photographe et vidéaste a testé pour nous le Nikon COOLPIX AW130, retrouvez son retour d’expérience à travers une magnifique carte postale vidéo à découvrir dans cet article.
AurélieMonod10b AurélieMonod10c AurélieMonod10d AurélieMonod10e“En juillet dernier, je suis retournée en Indonésie avec mon mari, cette fois dans une des régions les plus isolées de ce vaste pays : la Papouasie, et plus précisément l’archipel de Raja Ampat. Le voyage pour y arriver est long, mais le dépaysement est garanti !
Nous avons été hébergés par une famille papoue dans une baie sauvage, dans un bungalow sur pilotis fait de feuilles de palmier, avec une heure d’électricité par jour pour recharger les batteries. Un cadre fantastique, auquel s’ajoute la richesse incroyable du monde sous-marin …”
