http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2010/10/waveriders.html?camp=localsearch:on:twit:rtbutton Taken from baston.com Not a sport that i have ever paid much attention to.

Adam Lau is a photojournalist from Los Angeles in the u.s.a http://www.adamlauphoto.com/ the image has such a freedom the look of concentration in the girls eyes is a contrast to theContinue reading “Photo tweet of the day: Adam Lau”

Photo tweet of the day: Katrin Koenning

I think this image contrasts two genres. You have seascape and almost an element of street photography. The relaxing feel of the sea is an image we often view. Its interesting the way the horizon is totally level on the Pacific looking out over St. Kilda Beach, Melbourne, Australia. However its the to people whoContinue reading “Photo tweet of the day: Katrin Koenning”

The work shows Lichfield court in Richmond Really into the way this image pull’s you in to the centre point of the tower. It almost makes the beauty of the sides Secondary The swill of the wall makes you want to walk along the image and see whereContinue reading “Photo Tweet of the day: pasha9”

Photo Tweet of the day: Reuters

I found this picture from the Reuters agency. It’s the classic image you need to see a few times before you get what it its. Is it an advert for a new Drive concerting company. Is it that bull ring shopping centre in Birmingham. No sadly its none of the above. The image is a stream in LouisianaContinue reading “Photo Tweet of the day: Reuters”

A Tweet-A-Day: Platon

This image shows the  integrated Little Rock Central High in Arkansas class members from 1957 one member of the group Jefferson Thomas recently passed away. The Photography of the American Civil rights movement is a subject I’m interested in photographers like Charles Moore and Spider Martin. The above picture is really interesting. Despite the people having a lesser pace inContinue reading “A Tweet-A-Day: Platon”

Tweet of the day: David Levene

Well well…. Behind the painted smile LIES a harrowed ex leader. I’m sure this doesn’t fit in with spinster Tony Blair Labour Pr machine. This image looks more like the face he pulls when the news comes on at night with more cataclysmic colonial ideology. The harsh light of the studio on the fore headContinue reading “Tweet of the day: David Levene”

Tweet of the Day: Thomas Dworzak

This image was taken in the war zone of Chechnya. It was taken by Thomas Dworzak a member of Magnum Photography. There is a  punctum to the image you do look twice. On seeing the Holes which are bullet holes you start to question the image more. Obviously the women are shading the sun from their eyes. However it makesContinue reading “Tweet of the Day: Thomas Dworzak”

A Tweet A Day: Arnold Odermatt

http://flavorwire.com/111988/accidents-on-purpose-a-policemans-portfolio?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+flavorwire-rss+(Flavorwire)&utm_content=Google+Reader I once remember seeing a crash on the M40. After sitting in the jam we got to the event. On spine boards where the two people who had been tragically involved in the car crash. Instantly for the few seconds that caught my gaze there was instant peace. I was not quick enough  capture what i had seen on camera due toContinue reading “A Tweet A Day: Arnold Odermatt”

A Tweet a day: Philip Townsend

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/gallery/2010/aug/10/philip-townsend-swinging-sixties#/?picture=365606908&index=0 The Rolling Stones 1964 taken by Phillip Townsend. I think for a promo shot that this is pretty ground braking. its a angle that is very ahead of it time. When images in general view of the public. where sticklers to the rule of thirds and how the image should be view. It fits in with the image of the RollingContinue reading “A Tweet a day: Philip Townsend”

Tweet of the Day: Jaroslav Rossler

http://file-magazine.com/features/jaroslav-rossler Some great examples of photomontage early origins in The former Czechoslovakia. It was a part of the constructivism movement started by Alexander Rodchenko. From what I interpritate it was under the slogan of “art for art’s sake“. I see this as doing it because you can rather a real direction. Sort of making the image work. TheContinue reading “Tweet of the Day: Jaroslav Rossler”
