An interesting interview with Thomas Demand on the nature of constructed objects within his photographs and the meanings that can take place within them.
Interview with a Photographer
'Everyone has desires. The quality and the volume of those desires changes with age, but that desire is always serious and real. Photography is an expression of those desires.'
― daido moriyama
A short little interview with Stephen Shore, who along with William Eggleston, pushed colour photography into our visual language as an accepted form of expression - Eggleston was experimenting with color in 1965 and 1966 whilst for Shore it was in 1972.
Here, Shore talks briefly about how he got into photography, of shooting in Andy Warhol's factory, as this film's director, Heidi Hartwig, aims to 'dispel the mystery of the man behind the mythology'. And all in four minutes.
The photographer Phillip-Lorca diCorcia talks about this work through pictures, throughout the years of 1975-2012, and his various projects shot during that time.
"Emotion or feeling is really the only thing about pictures I find interesting. Beyond that it is just a trick."Christopher Anderson
Beautifully intimate, close, tender, revealing, Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson reveals interactions; moments of people with other people, framed within with their chosen landscape, which becomes a kind of extension of them, as they seem to burst within the frame, making so much noise and yet, at the same time, they can be so quiet, gentle, meditative.
"Accepting his 2005 TED Prize, photographer Edward Burtynsky makes a wish: that his images -- stunning landscapes that document humanity's impact on the world -- help persuade millions to join a global conversation on sustainability.
2005 TED Prize winner Edward Burtynsky has made it his life's work to document humanity's impact on the planet. His riveting photographs, as beautiful as they are horrifying, capture views of the Earth altered by mankind."
A beautifully inspiring man, the French photographer Klavdij Sluban talks with Lens Culture about his journey of photographing the inside of prisons around the world, from France, Ireland, Salvador, Guatamala and the former Soviet Union, since 1995. Here, he guides juvenile prisoners into the world of photography, letting them go to the very boundaries of creation, where they "are pushed to their own creative extremes".
