“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” 
― Ansel Adams

Showcase: Herman van Bon Photography

From his website:

To call him a landscape photographer is akin to describing Table Mountain as a large flat rock. To label him as a graphic artist also leaves much to be desired. A photo-graphic artist? Unwieldy and lacklustre.

The fact of the matter is that Herman van Bon as a photographer and as an artist is not easily pigeon-holed. Words fall short when describing his work and how he achieves it. In this case, his pictures are more than the sum of their parts.

Unearthing Photographers – Introduction

If you read this article on Cristian Mihai’s blog, you’ve already met me. At one point during the interview, I mentioned something along the lines of going out there, browsing and filtering through content in order to find photographers that simply aren’t known, but they should be, at least a little bit. Consider this post the introduction to what will become a weekly series of interviews about photography, sort of.

So, how do I filter? how do I determine who is worthy and who isn’t? Unfortunately, being completely unbiased is, honestly, out of the question, my personal preferences will interfere, but I can at least make an effort to be as neutral as possible. But does it really matter? In the end I will make a post about someone I don’t know, who wants to be exposed and for nothing in return, just because that’s what irevuo is all about. I think that is a pretty great idea, and something quite original.

The kind of photographer I’m hoping to find is someone that may not even be aware of his or her talent, think of it more like an experiment. Not really knowing what I will find is what makes this idea for a weekly series so exciting for me.

By next week, I’ll have the first real article in this series ready. I will find an aspiring photographer and get him or her to do an interview for us, talk about his or hers work, that kind of thing. Obviously, I will explain what the reasoning behind my choice was, in order to keep things more engaging.

That’s all until next week, and I hope I’ve piqued your interest. For the sake of having an image together with this post, I’ll leave you in the company of Henri Cartier-Bresson.
