Looking beyond with no great expectation As the sun will rise & set before your eyes You’ll see that all is a gift of life That every turn & road leads to a discovery That every season is a different view of a journey & if by chance you’ll see a shoreline nearby Turn the wheel, set it aside & drop by Take that much desired walk and be calmed by each wave In life’s unconventional beauty be saved Nothing but your being simmering down through the ocean breeze Up to a soothing point of silence be seized Where there is nothing left but the sea & the sound of you breathing Lavish in it & feel your life unraveling & for the first time in a brink of innocence Open yourself up for something new...

Photography Photography is that we get to view through the perspective

of photographers. You see, we may walk about the streets everyday, going the same route and not notice specific details. These photographers give light to a whole new meaning of being in the streets and infiltrating the beauty of it as it should be shown. To them, the streets are one of the playgrounds for creativity.

“ I feel deeply inspired by the black and white humanistic photography of the fifties..”

What is your background in photography? I discovered photography quite recently. Like everyone else, I was used to taking pictures. But one day, I don’t know exactly why, I felt I wanted to understand what photography was. That was about five years ago. I decided to buy a “real” camera, some books, and try to understand the techniques of photography. I’m an autodidact, but I’ve been lucky enough to benefit from the support and the advice of good and experienced photographers (Johan Trompat and Laurent Licari, my brother). I explored a lot to find out what I really liked : taking pictures of the street, the city, the people. I feel deeply inspired by the black and white humanistic photography of the fifties and sixties, and by great masters like CartierBresson, Doisneau, Vivian Maier or Gary Winogrand.

Sharing my photos has been an important step in my photographic journey : you have to accept the risk of being exposed to criticism and the challenges of your work. It maybe very disturbing, yet it is an opportunity to improve, to sharpen your eye, to explore new photographic territories. Therefore, I created my website ‘Balades en Photographie’ (http://balades-photographie.fr). I also had the opportunity to participate in some exhibitions in France, Europe and the United States, and these were all very moving experiences.

How would you describe your style in photography and how do you think it has developed in years? It’s not easy for me to say if I have a style of photography. But it’s true that some people who follow my work and show an interest in it tell me that my photos have an identity. I must say I’m glad about that. In answer to this question, I would say that I like close-ups which stage one, two or three subjects in a context that subtly shows through. I like to focus on faces, postures, expressions ; hands, looks. I take good care of the background so that it’s in harmony with the foreground, or at least that it doesn’t interfere or distract the eye. I try to find strong lines, a staging, and to make a photo suggestive or even poetic. I think that black and white is appropriate to obtain this suggestion. For my photos, I use a 50mm fixed focus lens. With this kind of lens actually, the photographer has to take care of his shots ; he has to show boldness and a good ability to react because he needs to be quite close to his subject and be able to adapt to all situations. It’s technically and emotionally risky (at least less comfortable than with a zoom lens), but I like this risk-taking and the contact with my subject. I think that this way the photographer gets more involved in his photo and that it will show in the printing. I’m also very influenced by the movies and I’m really touched when someone tells me that my photos have a cinematic style. But for some time, I’ve been feeling that my photographic inclinations (my style?) is changing : I’d like to compose longer shots and give more emphasis to the context. Maybe I will have to opt for a 35mm lens. I also realize that I long for color and abstraction.

What is it about street photography that inspires you ? When I started photography, I tried a bit of everything – architecture, nature, portraits – in order to learn and to figure out what I liked most. But I soon realized that above all, I liked street photography, that it appealed to me. This is not surprising because I love the city. When I travel, I’d rather stay far away from tourist areas and discover cities and neighborhoods where you can see the banality and sometimes the harshness of everyday life. And I like to take photos of that ; to capture a moment which is not extraordinary or spectacular but which is meaningful to us and triggers a familiar emotion : a simple moment that we could live and that is sublimated. A story begins and has to be ended. I like to take photos of the street, of the people, and evoke what their life could be. Continuation To Next Page >

Photography

If you can capture anything with your camera, what would it be? Above all, as I said before, I like to take photos of the street and of people in their everyday life. But sometimes, I wish I could go through the doors and be part of a more private circle in order to understand better what makes the singularity of a life and to spend more time with the people I take pictures of, while respecting their desire of being photographed or not, of course.

Photography BACK TO TABLE OF CONTENTS (Tap Here) How would you like to be remembered as a photographer?

“ .. challenge yourself, try, experiment,attempt. You have to go out in the field and dare.”

Words of wisdom for aspiring photographers Technique is essential to master photography. But it doesn’t end there : Without the eye of the photographer, technique is useless. It’s very important to look, to observe, to stand in the right place and wait for the right time. For some people, these skills are almost innate. But they can be learned to a certain extent. To achieve this, you have to nourish yourself through the work of famous or less famous photographers and moviemakers ; challenge yourself, try, experiment, attempt. You have to go out in the field and dare. Be a photographer all day long, especially when you don’t have your camera with you. I think it’s also very important to imagine the photos we could have taken if we’ve had all our equipment. Finally, you have to be modest, patient-and tenacious.

Photography is just a tool to express how I see the world at a given time. I have always loved to create. I’ve been a DJ spinning techno vinyl since 2000, trained as a chef since I was 14, I also dabble with drawing and sculpture. Inspiration comes and goes so when photography just doesn’t work, I draw, or I mix or I cook… Although I am now married and love my wife, I have always loved spending time alone so photography is perfect. Some people don’t have that need, for me it’s a way to meditate, clear my thoughts, observe and slow down.

Nothing formal. I just practice and practice some more. Hard work and passion I guess. I started shooting in 2008 although it’s not just as easy as stating “I passed my driving licence on THAT date”. I have, like anyone else, always had access to cameras, even if disposable ones in the 80’s, 90’s… Just never called myself a photographer. I recently dug out a box full of childhood memories and discovered an award for best photographer which I was given at a tiny village fete when I was eleven. I had no recollection of that outstanding achievement.

How would you describe your style in photography and how do you think it has developed in years? My style is fairly eclectic and I do not follow others. I try to stay well clear of cheesy. It’s commonly said in photography that you need to find your style. 99% of photographers apply a specific photo filter to all their photos and shoot the same crap over and over and over again. For them this defines their photography. I’m more interested in shooting what I like, what I see and depending on my mood and what’s around me, my photos will all be different. I’m an urban photographer, I shoot everything that makes London. Some call me a street photographer but I find that too limiting as it’s only a part of what I do. Over the years my tastes have evolved so I went from shooting urban landscapes, to scenes featuring heavily graffiti, to street photography (shooting un-posed scenes), to cinemagraphs, etc… Recently I’ve done lots of work for brands such as Adidas, Match.com, Peugeot, Amazon… There is too much to discover if you truly love photography to always shoot the same stuff.

“ It’s documenting but with a very strong focus on aesthetics. Not just shooting any random person. I like a strong composition.”

What is it about street photography that inspired you? I guess since I shoot London, at some point I had to decide to dedicate time photographing Londoners and people in general. It’s documenting but with a very strong focus on aesthetics. Not just shooting any random person. I like strong compositions. But the problem with street photography is everyone’s work is really looking very samey right now, it’s harder and harder to sift through the noise and find gems.

Photography I’m really a big fan of nature. I’m an urban photographer because such are my circumstances… I live in a city (it’s work driven). But I was raised in a tiny French village in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by nature. If I won the lottery, I’d immerse myself in nature, raise sheep, grow my own vegetable garden and shoot insects, animals, landscapes. Continuation To Next Page >

Photography

“Comments and likes you get online mean nothing. ”

How would you like to be remembered as a photographer? By my photographs. Words of wisdom for aspiring photographers Be careful reading too many articles online on photography and taking it as gospel. It’s never been easier to be a self-proclaimed expert on the subject and write lots of crap advice. Just take photos and be your worse critic. If you go out a whole day, everyday for a week and have what you think are 40 great shots, reduce to one per day to a total of 7 and then… eliminate 6 and only keep one as the best. Comments and likes you get online mean nothing. People will generally say things such as “great composition”, “nice”, “love the black and white”… It won’t help you progress as a photographer. All that matters is to be out there with your camera and a clear mind. End >

Photography RC Cipriano is a User Interface Designer based in Manila, Philippines. Photography came natural for an artist during his teens. He started by taking usual snapshots of family members and friends with kodak film cameras. He still shoots with film using a Yashica Electro 35 GTN. In 2013, he fell in love with the principles of street photography and joined other street photographers on casual photowalks. RC is currently pursuing art photography but believes that he can apply the discipline of street to conceptual art.

What is your background in photography? I really didn’t start out as a street photographer and I don’t really want to be categorized in a certain genre. I love shooting portraits and that’s it. Or so I thought it was. Street Photography is like a drug that you take once in a while to keep your sanity. It somehow expanded my view on capturing human emotions. I love walking in the streets of Binondo, Quiapo and others places in Manila where I see a lot of human interaction. I’m not really a hardcore street photographer but I try to learn everything I can from other street photographer friends who selflessly mentor me everytime we go on walks. I just love to capture different moments of ordinary people.

Street photography has a lot of styles, structures and what not. The thing I love to capture is the emotion on people’s faces. I want to feel what they feel everytime I frame them on my veiwfinder. Street photography should embody the Rawness of the moment. It’s not easy to have that straight out of the camera output. Most of the time I shoot what I can and enhance the photos in post processing but not to the point of doing it in HDR (High Dynamic Range). I love adding little bit of edge to my photos to have that better impact.

The Fujifilm X-Series cameras has proved itself to be one of the best when it comes to street photography. It’s light and inconspicuous. There are instances when you can’t really shoot an angry subject. Fujifilm enables me to operate my camera using my smartphone. It may violate some rules of other photographers but I’d rather have the shot than a bruised face or a smashed camera. Film is a different story. There is a different glory when producing a great street photograph. It’s hard but very rewarding.

“.. enjoy photography and make sure you become a better person out of it.” Words of wisdom for aspiring photographers. Don’t stop learning! If you’re just starting out, try to have a mentor.

That’s not all of it, Winnipeg has a high crime rate with a lot of drug use. The ones who decide to take drugs or who are in gangs like to take down the city and mark their “territory”.

What is the concept behind Sociale Revolution, who is behind it, and why was it formed? We launched Sociale Revolution in 2015 following a successful crowdfunding campaign to inspire positivity and change via our products. Our goal is to support the spread of art and give talented artists a way to reach out to more people beyond the galleries. “Sociale Revolution provides a new way to love, discover and own artworks. We partner with talented artists to develop meaningful, sociallyconscious pieces that make powerful statements,” said Fabien Thierry, CoFounder and CEO. It’s an innovative example of how art and fashion can work to effect real change in the world.

Sociale Revolution is the brainchild of two friends who wanted to give people a whole new way to access great original art. Fabien, a Frenchborn fashion enthusiast and long-time entrepreneur, and David, an artist featured in exhibits from the U.K. to L.A., joined forces to empower artists and art-lovers alike with a whole new way to collect, enjoy and support great modern art: by combining it with equally original clothing. Our garments are like a canvas where artists can reflect their mindset. We enable artists to reach fans by making their work more attainable, providing everyone the chance to own a piece of art.

“Art has always been the most compelling means of commenting on life around us, yet artists have no way of getting their message out there in a personal, impactful way.” Who is Fabien as a person, and how does Sociale Revolution define you?
 Fabien was born and raised in France and lived in Paris and London. He is married with a young daughter and currently live in Los Angeles. “I see art and fashion as ways to express individual ideas, and I was always amazed by how they federate hundreds of thousands of people. There are so many talented artists and designers that need help to get their work seen. This is why I started Sociale Revolution.”Fabien Thierry, Co-Founder. Art has always been the most compelling means of commenting on life around us, yet artists have no way of getting their message out to the public in a personal, impactful way. Sociale Revolution spreads the messages of artists in a way that encourages people to boldly become part of the conversation. There is no stronger way to express your beliefs than to “wear them on your sleeve”. Continuation On The Next Page >

In 2009 he moved his stencil work from his studio and canvas to galleries and other mediums, having begun commissioning his artwork Hero thought of an idea for a sticker campaign.

Artist of Sociale Revolution

clinton bopp Clinton was born in New Zealand and now lives in L.A. Clinton is inspired by people, his surroundings, and places he visits. He seeks to show the interconnectedness of people and the world around him in his artwork. It is fantastic amalgamation of his roots in nature, his urban soul, the Maori influences from his native land, and the deep respect he holds for the cosmic. All is stamped with an eye on the “Street.” His murals, which are executed in every conceivable style, show mastery of large scale drawing and composition. His images often have political or social elements, and he feels they portray an accurate image of the world in which we live. He wants his works, which are filled layer upon layer with narrative, mystic and literal street elements to engulf their environments. Clinton is influenced by the Renaissance and Mexican murals and the idea that art should communicate a message or story. Though he prefers acrylic paint, he often uses a spray can, oil paint, and paint pens and will paint on any surface which comes to hand. This includes recycled canvas that has perhaps been abandoned, wood, walls, shoes, furniture – or any surface. Clinton Bopp paints murals for public and private clients. His work is represented in several collections.

painting the streets, and everything surrounding the streets inspires us..” What inspires you to do Graffiti Art? It is something that we’ve done a long time ago. It gives freedom and the chance to reach a lot of people. It is something that other art disciplines don’t give you. We feel really comfortable painting in the streets, and everything surrounding the streets inspires us, people, culture, and the environment.

Street Art We are two artists that work as one, so PichiAvo for a lot of people is one. We started working together in 2007, fleeing from the artistic egocentrism. Giving more importance to the artwork than the artist, we mixed everything and we paint everything together, so that people will never recognize who has made what.

we just did it.” What makes Pichi & Avo a perfect collaboration? We don’t know. When we started working we didn’t think about collaborating, we just did it. The perfect PichiAvo now is the mix of classical art and graffiti/urban art, that’s the PichiAvo style now… however, we don’t believe in perfection so… we will get better and better. Maybe in a couple of years we will know what makes PichiAvo a perfect collaboration.

“ So people can see that graffiti is art as the classical art it is, and that is everything treated with respect.” What message do you want to convey to your audience through your art? Our work is not the one that gives direct messages, that’s not our goal. We work with mythology and you can find some meaning that people can apply to nowadays. But the main thing in our works is to do everything we know, as we come from the graffiti and we also have fine arts background. So people can see that graffiti is art as the classical art it is, and that is everything treated with respect.

Street Art The combination of both esthetics (classical art + graffiti/ street art) is what makes us different, both are mixed and both are important in the piece, each one compliments the other. Also, we’re different because we work together for the same art piece, and that’s unusual in the graffiti and art world now.
