Ilfochrome and Cibachrome by Jeffrey Becom

Born in a small Indiana farming community in 1953, Jeffrey Becom painted from an early age. He began to develop his photographic skills while earning a degree in architecture from the University of Cincinnati. After moving to San Francisco to practice, Becom opted out of an architectural career to immerse himself in a private obsession: observing, studying and recording with camera and paintbrush the wondrous color and detail of the simple houses of farmers and fishermen in remote Mediterranean villages and hill towns.

Franco Fontana

Franco Fontana, born 1933 in Modena
Die Farbfotografien des am 9. Dezember 1933 in Modena geborenen italienischen Meisterfotografen Franco Fontana zählen seit über 40 Jahren zu den stilprägenden Meilensteinen der Farbfotografie.

Er wurde zunächst bekannt durch seine, meist in Italien aufgenommenen, Landschaftsstudien. Es sind stark stilisierte, dabei farbsatte und dekorative Fotografien, in denen sich Wolken, Felder und Hügel in geometrischen Kompositionen verwandeln. In den 80er und 90er Jahren folgten seine Stadtlandschaften, oft in Amerika fotografiert und seine Poolszenen. Wie die Landschaften komponiert Fontana auch hier seine Bilder mit den Mitteln des extremen Bildausschnitts und der Reduktion auf Farben und Formen. Die Betonung auf wesentliche, meist kontrastierende Farben und Formen ermöglicht es Fontana, die atmosphärische und formale Essenz des Sichtbaren zu finden und abzubilden. Deshalb sind seine Motive ganz unabhängig von Ort und Zeit. Er löst das Motiv aus seinen Bezügen und komponiert so ganz eigene Bilderwelten aus seinem Zugang zur Wirklichkeit heraus. Was entsteht sind unverwechselbare fotografische Gemälde, die in ihrer Stringenz und Ausdruckskraft als einzigartig anzusehen sind.

Use color to bring emotion to your photography

Have you ever seen one of those pictures of a small child starving in Africa and have something tug at your heart? Have you ever seen a cover on a magazine and picked it up just because of that photo? Have you ever bought a product because of a picture of someone else using the product and how happy they looked? If you said yes to any of these, don’t worry; you’re not alone. Advertising is a $200 billion a year business . . . and most of it relies on photographs that have emotional impact.

So the obvious question is, “What is it that transforms a two-dimensional piece of paper into a three-dimensional image that yanks at our heartstrings?”
