Gorgeous Woven Portraits By David Samuel Stern

While completing a residency in Vermont in 2011, photographer David Samuel Stern began experimenting with literally weaving two different photographs of the same location taken at different times of day into one analog composite. Unhappy with the results using landscapes, Stern moved on to using portraits. In an interview with Fast Co., Stern explains “with the human face, […]

The Golden Land: Chris Leskovsek

“After 24 hours, I arrive in Yangon. The smells, the dust, and the extreme hot and humid conditions are some of the things that I won’t forget very easily.” – Chris Leskovsek One of the things I love about doing On Taking Pictures is all of the terrific email we get from listeners.

Perfectly Imperfect: Rod Penner

On first glance, you might mistake the work of Rod Penner for Stephen Shore or Gregory Crewdson, were it not for one remarkable distinction – Penner’s images are paintings, not photographs. Penner’s hyperrealistic paintings capture the mundane and the melancholy that is often left in wake of American industrial and factory towns when the jobs and prosperity have gone. […]

We Never Met: An Experimental Narrative [Q&A]

Storytelling has become sort of the new buzzword in photography – and roller coaster design, apparently. After all, if every picture tells a story, you can’t possibly just have a great picture without a great story, right? Regardless of where you come down (and for the record, I don’t agree), London-based creative team Alex + Hugo want to […]

Touching Stories Of Teddy Bears

I was never what you would call short on toys growing up. My parents – especially my mom – rarely missed an opportunity to keep me well-stocked with Hot Wheels, Lego, slot cars and, in 1977, Star Wars toys. I had several favorite toys over the years, but only one of this myriad of playthings […]

Beyond Bridges And Skyscrapers

Beyond posting the occasional dumpster photo, Instagram is not a platform that I have embraced as much as I could or maybe should. It’s not that I have anything against it – far from it – it’s more that I just don’t think “hey, I should post this on Instagram” when I happen to be […]

Shooting Arrows: Behind The Scenes With John Keatley

John Keatley has been even busier than normal lately – and not just shooting iPhone portraits or going on adventures with Bill Gates. For the past two months, he’s been hard at work directing (along with Jason Koenig) a new music video called Arrows by Fences featuring Ryan Lewis and Macklemore and, I’ve got to tell you, it’s absolutely […]
