INTRODUCTION B Y T H E E D I TO R The beginning of this endeavor comes at a very interesting and vital moment for photography: it has at last gained universal acceptance as one of the with its companion, cinema, it is the most characteristic art of our age. Also, together with the dominance of digital photography, the very nature of the art has changed. Very little photography (apart from documentary and news photography) is now done without are some notable exceptions,) and often the resulting image bears practically no resemblance to the original shot. Thus photography is now closer than ever to its etymological sense: writing, or painting, of every conceivable kind of “painting with light” is taking place around us. So we consider that the launching of this publication could not have come at a more propitious time.

and travel photographers from many countries, and advertising, fashion, portrait, nude, still life, nature, abstract, macro, documentary and many kinds of experimental photography are also well-represented. A special mention should be made of wedding photography. While for many years it was scorned as a poor cousin, as the most mundane type of everyday “work photography”, it has been elevated in recent years, by a number of talented practitioners, especially in East Asia, to a true art form. And we have in this book some impressive examples. We have a similarly broad approach in the photographers we have included. Some have reached the status of “old masters” – are internationally famous and at the top of their profession, honored with multiple awards and solo museum exhibitions, their work muchcollected. Others are just beginning their While most are professionals, some are not. What all have in common though, is that there is something remarkable or arresting about their work, and they all are technically In short, we have tried to give a complete as possible a picture of the best of photography

This thought has dictated our approach. There is considerable discussion about what is and what is not photography. We decided to take the broadest possible interpretation, and not only include, but actively pursue, everything that could remotely be considered as photography. On the one hand, we have the work of purists who still work only with old-

century. And as new volumes come out, we intend to broaden this picture and create an extensive chronicle of the art of photography.

printing only what came out of the lense

Thomas Tunberg Editor

we have “light painters” who alter images to the point where the original scene is unrecognizable.


A F E W W O R D S B Y T H E C U R ATO R exclusively to the art of photography. Our purpose with International Masters of Photography is similar to that of our other series: to create an annual chronicle of what is happening in the art of photography all over the world, by featuring the work of noteworthy photographers, representing as many genres as possible. established photographers, but to do so would have been to miss much of the vital pulse of an art that is expanding and literally recreating itself before our eyes. Much of what is really new and exciting is coming from young, unknown photographers, members of a globalized and well connected world-wide community. Very much enabled by the internet and the rapid development of communication technologies, people from every corner of the global village, are not only gaining more access to information and new processes, but we all are enabled to share our discoveries and in a primarily visual manner. We, at WWAB, see this as a very exciting and positive development, and hope that our books provide one more tool to enhance this contemporary phenomenon. It has been our approach from our beginning as a publishing house to be as broad and inclusive as possible in our selection - while maintaining rigorous standards of quality. We believe that the element of magic in any anthology of art is its broadness and variety, and here we want it to include the whole world. And the world of photography is huge. In years to come, as we add volume after volume, we think that our depiction of it will become an ever more faithful cross-section of this beautiful and dynamic art.

CATHRIN SCHULZ “ ‘AUTHENTI©ITY OF AMERICA | DENALI’ documents my vision of America. I perceive America’s authenticity and diverseness, embracing it in soulful places. The energy, sensitivity and natural authenticity of DENALI immediately caught me up. His impact revealed a pure exterior strength, a deep beauty. Shooting DENALI on his own ground and comfort level, his inner soul became visible. The muscular posture, his clear body language and his eyes communicated with an intimacy and a sense of power and vulnerability at the same time. This edition is about sensing, seeing and understanding - a horse, a country, a culture.” -Cathrin Schulz Cathrin Schulz was born in 1971 in Wiesbaden, Germany and lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

MICHAEL LIVSHIN world around me, about myself, better understand the reality of the three dimensions and convert it into two-dimensional sub-reality, freezing time to stop the constant want to see deep inside someone’s eyes and see their pain, hopes and dreams, look for the light in the darkness around me, search for the uncommon in the common. I want to see people, what lies behind their eyes, where have they been, where they hope to go, because it helps me to understand myself. I am searching for the soul in the mundane, purpose in a seemingly indifferent and cruel world; to identify my place in it with all my talents.� -Michael Livshin

CHRIS CLOR “Born 1959, I grew up in the suburbs of what was once the home of the largest car companies in the world; Detroit, Michigan. I spent a great deal of my career there working for the ad agencies that serviced these companies. I moved to London three years ago and am now based in the UK. My visual style has been described as illustrative, painterly and cinematic. It is a product of years the offbeat expression, unique beauty, or a face etched with years of living are a few of the qualities that make a great portrait to me. My goal is to create epic, dramatic imagery using carefully crafted lighting and color palettes combined with a sense of mystery, whimsy and humor. I use a combination of photographic craftsmanship and modern post processing techniques to achieve the ‘look.’ I was an early adopter of CGI rendering and image compositing, combining virtual and analog elements to create imagery that would have been unimaginable just a few year ago.” -Chris Clor

G. ELLIOTT SIMPSON G. Elliott Simpson was born in 1970. He has been an artist and graphic designer since 1993, and has art while recovering from a near-fatal injury and 7-week-long coma. He lives in Toronto, Canada with his husband Peter, and a long-haired tabby named Wagner. “It’s fair to say the injury and recovery motivated me to get on with making the work I’d always wanted to, made me appreciate the time left - so it’s at least partly to blame. While I admire the work of many photographers see around us is a lie in the process of being told, and that intrigues me - to paint people, dress them in a new costume or skin, to conceal them behind that polished commercial veneer (another lie we’re all now accustomed to) that can make the disturbing seem accessible, even fashionable. And when you cover something up in one place, something else gets revealed in another - I think my images are about people pretending to be, wishing they were, something other than what they are, which when you think about it seems truthful in and of itself, very everyday.” - G. Elliott Simpson 30

“I was raised in a family of professional photographers. Trained as a psychologist, I found photography as a second full-time career. I constantly challenge myself to express myself in new and unconventional ways with my camera. My shooting style is highly intuitive and regardless of the tools used. I capture things with all sorts of gear, almost always with natural light and with some planned distance between intuition and technical perfection. I feel that creativity behind the lens lends itself to artistic expression. Like any other artistic medium the camera is the beginning of one’s art, - not the end. The camera is a tool that allows me to paint with light. I love interpreting life in this way; breaking traditional photography rules and capturing an image in the way I feel it should be.” -J. B.

In 1996 she joined the Hellenic As she was always fond of photography and travelling, she created her own website, where she shares her thoughts and images from Greece and abroad. She considers herself an amateur photographer, as photography is a journey that never ends; a journey where there is always something new to discover. Some of her work is “pure” photography; images as recorded by the camera, but in many creating something new: her own composition. She has no set procedure– the result is the instinctive inspiration of a moment, which can never be duplicated.

About Parallel Series “There’s a mystery and power in holding something so ancient in the palm of your hand; to think that once this fossil belonged to a creature that lived thousands or millions of years ago, in a world so removed from ours. But even more powerful is the recognition that this prehistoric fragment resembles something so close to me, alive and present: The human form, a perfectly orchestrated symphony, with its grooves, curves and twists, converging and diverging lines, the bones, the muscles, the organs. And the ancient fossil falls in tune, playing the same symphony, yet on another frequency: A parallel frequency.”

“In my opinion photography has the capacity to illustrate thoughts, soul beyond the borders of space and time. Furthermore, they offer the possibility to share these impressions in a very personal way, but also leave enough space to the viewer for free individual interpretations, and don`t push him in a certain direction as words often do..�

“I have been painting for 13 years, and was originally taught by my father, Duncan Simmons who is a professional hyperrealist and watercolorist. I attended the Glassell School of Art in Houston, Texas for a short time, but did not busy with my three children. However, I continued painting, teaching myself various styles and techniques, where I have worked up to a respectable level, mostly on my own. Aside from painting, I have developed a love for photography (I-Phone photography,) which has become a passionate part of my everyday life. I have captured the most amazing, and what I call “divine images” in the sky, via my I-Phone, without using any type of Photoshop for enhancing what I capture... ...just contrasting and toning the colors which are already there, bringing to life what is unseen to the naked eye. It is a blessing, and a gift I have received, no doubt, and I am so thankful this form of art can say I have somewhat of a ‘romance with the heavens’ touch to every form of creation. My art is nothing but a story in the making.. ...a “Love Story”, which one day, will all come together.

“People, their attires, the environment they live in and the blending of cultures have always fascinated me. The process of capturing a moment that invokes an amalgamation of all these aspects inspire my photography; be it a candid pose or a staged situation, lit by nature or with the help of external light sources on location. The inanimate camera becomes a medium through which I can relate to the people I am shooting and I become a part of their whole environment. Just for that moment.� -

“My approach to photography is quite simple. I believe that “photography” is the capturing of a moment in time. Because of this philosophy I do very little, if any, moments. With diminishing natural resources and human’s lack of compassion and understanding, these animals are disappearing at an alarming rate. My “job” is to record the lives of these animals, before they are all gone. I use Nikon D3 and D4 cameras and Nikkor 500mm or 600mm lenses. I observe animals’ behaviors and anticipate their actions and try to realistically capture the essence of the animal in his or her natural world.”

“K.REATURES is a series of movie-like still imagery telling a story of a human battle with dichotomy. The characters in these artworks represent purpose of “knowing thyself.” In the subconsciousness of bright personalities lie dark spots of edgy fantasies. Equally, dangerous characters have spiritual light concealed within their defensive shells. Forgiveness is the mysterious key element that enables us to acknowledge this everlasting duality, respect it, and enjoy congruent authentic living.”

Dawn I, Schermer, Holland, 2011 Color digital photograph “The region of Holland where I live is an old landscape with dunes, polders, dykes, canals, sluices, mills and dams. All these are elements in the ongoing struggle against water. From medieval times people have worked on this landscape to protect their houses, crops and cattle, and to keep their feet dry. By studying archives and old maps I look for the remnants of their work, many of them still functioning today. They make this landscape so interesting and I try to tell their story and to show their beauty in series of photos using the ever-changing Dutch light and atmosphere at various moments of the day and seasons.�

“I live near the coast, surrounded by tulip bulb of inspiration. One of the projects I am working on is the series ‘Waves.’ It is about the move of the sea. Most of the time I work at the end of the day when twilight is setting in. The images are taken with a long exposure time. I work with a Canon G11 and Canon D60 and the last three years I sometimes turn camera, inherited from my father, a Leica M4-P, Holga and a pinhole Zero. Since last year I have also been fascinated by alternative processes like cyanotypes, the Vandyke process and gumprinting.”

“I was born in Cherbourg, a seaport in Normandy in North West France on January 10, 1953. For 34 years, I have lived in Melbourne Australia. I have worked as a professional photographer for the last 30 years. My work involves: landscapes with a graphic, almost abstract quality, largescale industrial elements within these landscapes, and studies of industrial structures. My aim is to express the feeling of the natural world, to show the visual harmony that can exist between human and natural components and industrial subjects. Occasionally, I include a fragile, human presence to emphasise scale and power. � -J.M. L-R. East Link Color digital photograph

creating. Every moment of photographing is accompanied with a childish excitement as if it were the within it; to choose one moment in time, to commemorate it, to hold its beauty, to examine it and see what the eye missed in a glimpse: a speck of dust, a single light, movement of fabric, water. I love photographing everything: children, young and old people, landscapes, urban streets, architecture, the random and the staged, color and black & white. I photograph everything pretty to me at any moment. I see my photographs as describing beauty and optimism, both apparently are in the eyes of the beholder.� - D.L.

J. Maton investigates the border between journalism and art, with special attention to minorities. Parallel to his personal work, he accepts commissions for portraits, special events, and journalism, mainly for publishing companies, media agencies, magazines, artists, and other associations. Beyond narration, J. Maton’s work favors an intimate approach guided by the poetry of the moment: the aquatic or plant worlds; landscapes or children in a Saïgon orphanage, backstage of a fashion show or the private moments of travelling people.

MAXWELL

Born 1950 in Fort Worth, Texas, Marilyn moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1990, and soon photography replaced painting as her primary form of creative expression. She has dedicated her art to documenting the rituals of people in pursuit of their passions, often an outer expression of an inner truth. That truth may involve the need for a morning cigarette, waxing a beloved car, or the quest for the perfect performance. Marilyn is currently working on two projects, ‘New Mexico Noir’ and which documents the lives of the performers at the in Havana, Cuba.

Jill Merriam (b. 1951 Connecticut, USA) is the owner of a photographic arts and design studio in Richmond, Virginia. A self-taught photographer, she has participated in several international photography workshops and exhibited in galleries in Virginia, North Carolina, New York, Chicago, California, and Toronto. A portfolio of her work was recently published in FOCUS Fine Art magazine, New York. Several Honorable Mentions and s were awarded in the Prix de la Photographie Paris competitions in 2009, 2010, and 2011.

Burano, and most recently to Cuba, my work has evolved into an eclectic mix of art and documentary photography. I love to “catch the vibe” in new locations, capturing images spontaneously. Back in my studio, imagery then becomes an artistic rendering of city/ land/streetscapes, architectural details, textures, patina, and “street” portraits. Each photograph is processed individually, uniquely. All are natural light, documentary-style, captured moments (not “staged”)—reality with a twist.” - J.M.

“I look to create something special and unique for overwhelming response from family and friends when I began was that I fueled a desire and a passion to explore, to learn, and to better myself as a photographic interpreter of beauty.

Creativity is endless, each path is as wide open as the horizon gives. I like to tell a story in my images whether through nature, people or both. For me there is a refreshing comfort in drawing out unseen beauty or obscuring with mystery. Lighting came naturally to me. I explored highlights and shadows and shapes and textures and the dynamic interplay between them. Some notable highlights include: book publication of my work in the International most nominations in one category for the Spider Awards for best black and white photography; and a recent showing of my work in a New York City Gallery as well as the Museum of Fine Art in for more works of art to be published in the near future.� - D.N.

Namibia is one of the least populated countries in the world, and in the southwest region is the Namib Desert. The desert dunes, some of the highest in the world, are evocative and dreamlike. Some 300 meters high, they are constantly changing, carved by the powerful winds that prevail. In the early 1900’s, diamonds were discovered, and towns like Kolmanskop sprung up, but the diamond rush is long gone and the desert is invading and reclaiming the ghost towns.�

JOE

TA B O N E

Born in Melbourne, Joe Tabone lives in Australia. He is a self taught landscape photographer, driven by his desire to be out in nature and to try techniques over many years and personally found that he obtains the most pleasing results visually when photographing in the infrared black white medium. In his own words, “the sense of surreal lighting encapsulated by this medium exaggerates the drama, mood and theatre of light and atmospheric conditions interacting with the land, providing an enhanced emotional reaction to the image.”

“As a commercial photographer for over three decades, I see how my work has evolved and I fully understand that my innate instinct is to visually create the essential elements of its being...its inner and outer beauty, whether it is an organic, living creation of nature or a man made object. My mind’s eye sees something, my emotions feel something, and then my camera, lighting and set see something. They often uncover something that I didn’t notice and the sum total will be a welcome photographic surprise that visually stimulate and satisfy me in ways that words cannot.” K.T.

“My vision is to capture and express images that both embrace and reach beyond the here and now. Photography is an alchemical process – subject as raw material, yielding gold as an image expressing truth beyond that subject. Success is creating something that makes us think and remember, and ultimately, see the world in a new and different light.” Barry Toranto graduated from Goddard College with a BA in Fine Arts and resides in California’s San Francisco Bay Area.

Above: Windowscapes | Guardian Angel, Florence Color digital photograph Below: Windowscapes | Paris Color digital photograph Windowscapes “These photographs are not created by layering in Photoshop, they are created directly, in a single exposure, by capturing contrast to what is on the other side of the glass. Looking through glass is always surprising. Changing the camera angle changes change the way objects show or do not show. Inanimate objects in a window can seem to have personality, as photographs are inanimate and yet arouse feeling. These images sometimes layer and sometimes merge. They evoke our double life: who we are inside and what we become outside.”

GUIDO

TORRES

The Fencing Master I Canon 20D | Color digital photograph

Born in Mexico, Guido Torres has always been attracted to the different interpretations of art. As a conceptual photographer, he is not interested in creating perfect images of beautiful people. He’d rather engineer photographic happenings which chart the shift from reality to dreamworld, seeking out the strange, the exotic and the unseen and, along the

He says photography provides an endless stream of possibilities. He believes the best art is born of natural partnerships. Whether its collaboration between artists or the relationship between artist and subject, these dynamic connections drive his creativity. Photographic shoots are experiments from which ideas are born: an organic process which is only ever partly within Guido’s conscious control. On shoots, his head functions as a motorized machine and his eyes as the machinist driving the process. This improvised approach constantly challenges to create less mainstream art. Initially trained as an architect, he has also studied painting and photography in London and New York. He works from his studio in Mexico City and collaborates with artists to merge ideas which far outstrip their individual concepts.
