What's Your Horizon Story? Rumble

31

Every amazing Horizon photo has an equally amazing story behind it. Did you meticulously plan out the entire shoot, or did you just luck into it, and pushed the shutter? Let us know and get the chance to win some Piggies!

One of the great things from taking photos is the ability to share the story and thought processes that went on building up to that moment. Your simple portrait might have been the product of countless hours of second guessing yourself to ask her out, or it could be nothing more but a nice smile that you decided to snap up.

Do you have a Horizon photo that has a story begging to be told? Write up your story (together with the Horizon photo, of course!), and publish it on your User Blog. Then place the link here in the comments.

    Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan who wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and photograph them. He never became a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years after, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

    Light is Magical: A Talk With Li Hui

    Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.

  • Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
