To Be Young Again: Dennis Auburn and His Wistful Photographs of Youth

2014-03-20

Appreciating visual imagery can vary from one person to another. Young and talented photographer Dennis Auburn had us staring at his works for minutes before clicking on to see the next one.

Every day we browse through hundreds if not thousands of photos here at the Lomography HQ , both coming from the digital and analogue territories. But there always comes a time when we have to do a double back to see if the amazing visuals are indeed done in-camera. *Dennis Auburn* and his photographic body of work on film did not disappoint us during our search today.

Dennis Auburn is a 21 year old photographer based in Houston, Texas and his young career is already littered with commissioned work for different sites and publications. One look at his photographs and you already have an idea to why his works stand out.

Photos by Dennis Auburn

Auburn is all about shooting with film cameras and his photographs offer a dream-like look into reality. While most of his works center on the idea of youth, his approach in taking photographs can be considered timeless. No matter what age his audience may be, acknowledgement and praises like “stunning” and “beautiful” are almost always expected.

One thing to watch out for in Auburn’s photographs is his constant use of natural and artificial light as a means to create amazing in-camera effects like light flares and intentional light painting.

You can see more from the young photographer on his website and Tumblr. All information and photos used in this article were sourced from Dennis Auburn’s site.

    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.

    Chlorophyll Prints by Binh Danh: An Interview

    In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series "Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War" he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
