Russian “Paradise” for Mentally Disabled

“Elat’ma, the Ryazan Oblast region of Russia. This small town is only 300 kilometers (186 miles) from modern Moscow but remains 60 years in the past, dominated by the spirit of socialism. The air of the communist ‘50s can be seen in the town’s architecture, celebrations and other occurrences. Sometimes called the “Switzerland of Ryazan”, Elat’ma has the natural charm of the countryside. But neither its beauty nor its ties to a socialist past brought photographer Anastasia Rudenko to this village. It has a different significance to her, both personal and professional.

Hong Kong – Portrait of a Protest

1202 Hong Kong – Portrait of a Protest
John Ma (L), 62, a lecturer, and his wife May, 50, pose for a photograph at a rally ahead of an “Occupy Central” civil disobedience protest in Hong Kong September 26, 2014. As a former student leader, Ma said, “I support student protest and tell them to grab their chance”. China rules Hong Kong under a “one country, two systems” formula that accords the territory limited democracy. Tens of thousands of mostly student protesters are demanding Beijing give them full democracy, with the freedom to nominate election candidates. The unrest is the worst in Hong Kong since China resumed its rule over the former British colony in 1997. (Photo by Bobby Yip/Reuters)

2014 National Geographic Photo Contest, Week 1

1200 2014 National Geographic Photo Contest, Week 1
“Dreamscape”. A stunning sunset painted the sky over the Jokulsarlon Glacer Lagoon in South Iceland. It was a typical cloudy day in the Icelandic summer. The day was not hoping for a nice sunset, but I still decided to go on the spot, hoping to finally see the sun once the same had left behind the clouds. When the sun went down, in fact the sky burned out in an incredible vanilla tone. The scene was so peaceful and placid, so I decided to capture it with a long exposure, to bring out the amazing sense of oniric peace that this amazing sunset created. It has been like living in a dream. Photo location: Jokulsarlon Glaier Lagoon, Iceland. (Photo and caption by Francesco Riccardo Iacomino/National Geographic Photo Contest)

“Being Michael Jackson”

“Michael Jackson, the performer, consistently transcended racial and gender perceptions; Michael Jackson tribute artists, impersonators and lookalikes reflect this in that they embody a wide span of inspiration and intention. The current crop of impersonators are people who take great care in their appearance – some spend a lot of money and time on their make up and clothing, while others are more concerned with the physical gestures associated with his dances while expressing very little concern in the creation of an illusion.

“The Michael Jacksons” is a study of people from around the US who make a living or perform as Michael Jackson. The project is both an index of the refraction of Michael Jackson’s public persona, and a look the exploration issues of fantasy, reality and representation as influenced by and filtered through cultural experience. Ultimately the project is a quest to photograph the tribute artists, impersonators and lookalikes in the aftermath of Mr. Jackson’s death, and along with a written ethnography which focuses on the interpretation of “blackness” by the performers, is intended to interpret, understand and evaluate what seems to be an emerging subculture within the world of professional mimicry”. – Lorena Turner

Rameau primarily works as Michael Jackson by posing with tourists on Hollywood Boulevard where he can $400 to $500 a day, but has traveled internationally as well. In his representation, Rameau works to embody Michael Jackson’s demeanor – someone who is light in spirit with a physical fluidity. When Turner observed him on the boulevard in the fall of 2011, he was trying to save money to put on an autobiographical play about his life as a Haitian immigrant and MJ look alike.

Automotive Photography by Max Itin

DSC 0363bw test 650x975 Automotive Photography by Max Itin

I am a 16 year old photographer with high hopes and a love of art. I grew up in a family of artists, so it only makes sense that I would find my niche in the arts as well. I’m a graphic designer and a photographer, but I see myself pursuing a career in photography over design – though, rest assured I will continue with both! I’ve always had a thing for cars as well, whether it be the numerous Hot Wheels in my “collection” or the Formula 1 I used to watch with my father, I’ve always been exposed to everything automotive and, as such, I decided to unite my two loves: photography and cars. I hope to find a career in commercial automotive photography. Wish me luck!
