Garry Winogrand Photographer

Posted on by Bellamy

Here you go, an interview with the greatest, Mr. Garry Winogrand. Unfortunately the commentary is in German, but it doesn’t really matter as you get to see how he works on the street, which is really inspiring. The way he blends in and disarms his subjects is brilliant. It is pretty cool to see him […]

Leica Noctilux f/0.95 Review

Posted on by Bellamy

Could this be the greatest 50mm lens ever produced? The guys at Digital Rev run a review of the Noctilux f/0.95 for your pleasure. Personally I don’t think that the Noct is the best, the dof is far to shallow and very unforgiving. It is a spectacular lens, of that there is no doubt, but […]

There are some really moving and challenging pictures in this set. Shame the maker of the video didn’t bother to credit the photographers that were included in the video. Enjoy Japancamerahunter

I got to have a go on one of these last week. It is lavish and completely over the top, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting one. This is basically a porn video for cameras, featuring the Christy Turlington of cameras. Very pretty. Japancamerahunter

A great short video from Magnum in which a few of the great Magnum photographers such as Elliott Erwitt, Alex Webb, Bruce Gilden, Chris Steele-Perkins and others talk about the books they have produced.
