Finding Myself in the Stars

Finding Myself in the Stars
by Don Whitebread

California, USA – I spent the summers of my youth wherever my father’s work as a geologist took us, usually camped deep in a desert mountain range.  Watching the slow change of light and weather during the day, and the flow of stars across the night sky was my best entertainment. This background fueled my interest in photography, and has drawn me to remote locations throughout my life. I chose to photograph this series using only natural light, and rarely moonlight, to show that faint, diffuse starlight that few people really see any more.

Black and White Photography
by Maxim Bedov

more at Alpa of Switzerland

ALPA cameras are precision tools. Made with passionate and skilled craftsmanship for a small group of connoisseurs. Much like musical instruments, cameras of this caliber require the practiced fingers (and the eye) of a master. Such photographers do not require automatic functions. Or a constant stream of new models. ALPA cameras simply provide the same as all good tools and instruments – the best possible quality in design, material and manufacture.

La nature nous offre tant de possibilités de compositions. La difficulté est de choisir la composition qui est extraordinairement nouvelle. Cette série est une recherche esthétique et graphique de la nature, où tout semble avoir trouvé sa juste place, où le sens de l’ordre semble si bien équilibré et proportionné qu’il devient difficile de distinguer la limite (s’il y en a une) de l’intervention humaine. Tout comme la chorégraphie d’un ballet ou d’une composition musicale, tout semble en harmonie et nous donne une profonde sensation de paix et de tranquillité. L’ordre et l’équilibre de la nature, mêlés à l’imperfection et à l’imprévisibilité des supports photographiques, nous font le don d’un tableau qui s’éloigne de la réalité.

pierrepellegrini01a pierrepellegrini01b pierrepellegrini01c pierrepellegrini01d pierrepellegrini01eParfois, je ne peux même pas m’expliquer quels sont les mécanismes que j’utilise pour choisir un sujet plutot qu’un autre. Je sens que je dois m’arrêter pour immortaliser ce que mes yeux voient. Dans un premier temps, c’est la transcription d’une certaine valeur très personnelle, où l’image est l’expression de ce que je ressens. Une sorte de paysage intérieur. Un moment magique que je souhaite retenir dans ma mémoire et dans mes pensées, mais en même temps que je veux partager à travers une image.
