In your bag #46 – Rashomon

Posted on by Bellamy

In your bag number 46, Rashomon Hey folks, another bagshot for you, except this one is rather unusual in that it doesn’t have a bag in the picture! Still, it has some interesting bits in the shot and the guy behind it, Rashomon, is a guy with a lot to say. So over you Rashomon: […]

Robert Frank – I am a lucky man

Posted on by Bellamy

I was lucky enough this week to go to a Robert Frank exhibition in Tokyo at Gallery Bauhaus with my good friend John Sypal. It turns out there was a show of Frank’s work, including original prints and contact sheets from ‘outside my window’ and ‘flower is’. You can see the site for the gallery […]

Helen Levitt 1913-2009

Posted on by Bellamy

It is about time I posted a video, though I have been so busy lately that I have not had time to find any. But, lo and behold this one popped into my field of vision. Helen Levitt is one of the great unsung New York street photographers of the 20th century. Not as aggressive […]

Bruce Gilden – Coney Island

Posted on by Bellamy

It has been a while since I have put a video up, so I thought is should be one with some substance and verve. I decided on Coney Island by Bruce Gilden as it is a series by a photographer that polarizes many people. Whilst I am generally not a huge fan of Gilden’s work, […]

Contacts : Leonard Freed

Posted on by Bellamy

Having recently been in the darkroom again after a long period of absence, I was fortunate enough to have the chance to produce about 50 contact sheets of my recent work. I had quite forgotten what a thoroughly rewarding and wasteful experience this was. Rewarding in that you can clearly see what you have been […]

William Albert Allard: Five Decades (National Geographic)

Posted on by Bellamy

I first came across the work of William Albert Allard when I was a teenager, as I was given a monthly subscription the National Geographic for my 13th birthday. For me NatGeo was a photographic revolution, I could not get over how people could capture such moving and inspiring images. Although I was not aware […]

Josef Koudelka – a time lab -III -

Posted on by Bellamy

The final installment in the Josef Koudelka series that I started posting last week. His work ins comedic, timeless, melancholic and everything inbetween. I just wish I could afford to own his books. Cheers Japancamerahunter

Josef Koudelka – a time lab -II -

Posted on by Bellamy

The second installment in the Josef Koudelka series of videos that I have promised to post. Koudelka’s images are incredibly inspiring, it is hard not to be moved by his work. I particularly like his statement “I want to see everything, look at everything, I want to be the view itself”. Enjoy Japancamerahunter
