Barcelona photographer PoL Úbeda Hervàs published an album named "I'm Not There" consisting of a series of portraits. Interestingly, the object of the portraits are merely a shadow with a pair of shoes.
In fact, these series of portraits are conceptualized by the photographer while he ponders about how his life has changed. The message behind is every person in this world are unknowingly shifting from his or her original self. As we look into the reflection of ourselves, does it truthfully represent us, is it our true self? Or is it just a mere physical shadow? PoL Úbeda Hervàs utilized the principal of light and shadow to complete this set of extraordinary creation, overwhelming the viewers’ thought.
Shadows follow us everywhere, but they change with the situation and condition. When you look at your shadow, does uncertainty hit you? Are you forgetting your true personality, forgetting why and where you are standing as you are? The awkward presence of the shoes is to remind ourselves of us changing; what is left should not be a mere shadow. The photographer left the shoes as a small reminder that there was at least some fragment of our personality left behind from what we have been through, more than just a shadow.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
"Is it acceptable to photograph the homeless?" is one of the most hotly-debated topics when it comes to street photography. There are two opposing sides to this: those who believe it is, and those who don't. For those who do, capturing such photographs is mere documentation of the world around us. For those who don't, doing so is a form of exploitation.
There's a certain air of sadness in Nishe's portraits. More often than not, the faces of her subjects are either partially or completely hidden. Sad, yes, but undeniably beautiful. Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.
The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare foot images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!

My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.
