This project started as a joke one day when I was was waiting for the light. Playing with the phone i took a quick shot of my camera setup in the landscape. Actually it was not a project at that stage. Just a record shot from the photo trip …. (more…)
Originally, this was suppose to be a review to a completely different book. But I had a delivery on Saturday…. Yes, all my notes about previous book went to one side, and I had to write few lines about this beautiful new addition to my photographic library. The title of the book is “Before they pass away” by Jimmy Nelson.
I remember the first time I saw one of the Salgado’s most famous pictures. I was amazed. It was one from The Workers project where man is trying to stop leaking oil setting on fire. Since then I was hooked and became a huge fan of Salgado’s work.
If you are into landscape photography you must know the name. One of the greatest British landscape photographers Joe Cornish. Master Cornish is one of my heroes, true master of camera. I already had 4 of his books and I love his work, his style and vision.
15/05/2012 Nottingham and Notts photographic society organised Joe Cornish’s talk and I bough my ticket in February. When the day finally came, I arrived to the venue and found it buzzing with excitement and quite busy. There was even raffle with Joe Cornish’s big print as a main price. Obviously all ticked have been already sold out….
When i left Slovakia, my time for taking pictures of Slovak landscapes was pretty much over. I collected my best shots from Slovakia and created this book. It’s only Slovak language version now , but I’m working on it and soon an english version of this book should be out too. Watch this space for more info.
Here is the book, please have a look:
