We turn our eyes across the Atlantic to commemorate this fine US Memorial Day, courtesy of self-titled “Tyne Cot Cemetery“, which Eric Huybrechts captured on May 12, 2018, using Nikon D7100 and 11-16mm f/2.8 lens. […]
Monochrome is an art form popular among street shooters, but the purest excellence takes typical things and makes them monuments to hues of grey and black, of light and shadows. Bernhard Hanakam captured self-titled “Lathering” […]
Architect Mariano Mantel steals Sunday with street shot “Break Heart“, which he captured on March 2, 2019, using Nikon D7100 and 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Vitals: f/10, ISO 1000, 1/250 sec, 56mm.

Picturesque best describes the photographic style of Antonio Cinotti. Perhaps this explains why: “I am very lucky to live in a natural paradise”, he says—”40 Years from Siena, Tuscany, Italy”. He loves “Crete Senesi, Valdorcia, […]
Choosing one Neil Moralee photo to profile is an exhausting act of indecision. His candid photos are masterpieces in portrait—the majority black and white, cropped close, and set against dark background and emphasizing shadows. His subjects tend to be older, which is refreshing departure from so much photographic art focused on the young and beautiful.
I wouldn’t call self-titled “Third Age of Man” Neil’s best street portrait, but it’s captivating nevertheless. I look at the geezer and wonder: He looks so out of breath, but he’s riding not walking! I picked this pic not for what it is, but what Neil says about it, and he quotes an organization’s spiel verbatim:
