The Photo Fundamentalist is the creation of travel / reportage / landscape photographer Tom Stanworth. It features a blend of erudite, entertaining wiring on photography, photographers, books, and, yes a bit of gear. Tom’s photography itself is the centrepiece though, although you you have to dig a bit to find his portfolios. Best find of 2015 so far.
Ira Meyer chronicles the Polar regions through his vivid, romantic photography. His style is full of energy and light, a refreshing change from the gloom and darkness which many seem to want to emphasise in the high latitudes. His latest book, Ice At The Ends of the Earth, has received a well-desrved enthusiastic reception.
Foto4All Magazine is one of the best e-magazines I’ve come across. They publish a very nicely edited monthly PDF magazine, featuring both known and unknown photographers, as well as book reviews, events, history and philosophy of photography. Published in Romania, is has a refreshing perspective on the photographic world. An iPad app “best of” is also available on the Apple App Store.
Vieri Bottazzini is a commercial fine art photography based in Istanbul. I find his delicate, detailed style far more appealing than the usual heavy-handed over saturated stuff that seems to dominate these days. Apart from his portfolio and sales website, he writes a regular blog, on a range of artistic, technical and opinion subjects. Well worth a visit.
A veteran of some 20 polar expeditions of various kinds, Daisy is a dedicated award-winning, widely published nature and wildlife photographer, as well as a strong advocate for environmental issues. She is also an accomplished speaker and presenter, and can often be found as resident photographer on Arctic and Antarctic cruise ships.
The work of Ernesto Bazan covers his both native Sicily and much of Latin America. His widely praised and awarded work crosses a lot of boundaries, but is centered in the street / reportage tradition. I particular like his use of the panoramic format in this context.
