@yungcanoeist those are quaint as hell. Were they taken with your phone? esp. like the one with the moped on it.

I've been playing around w/ focusing on geometric form but i'm kind of finding myself shooting photos w/o subjects and that's a problem I need to solve going forward, if I want to stop taking compositionally OK but boring pics.

Thinking about putting the first two into diptych form but they're alright on their own.

!!!! those are so beautiful!! i'm so into the compositions of 2, 3, and 4 especially. i feel you - i used to shoot primarily geometric composition (see below) but started doing portraits and otherwise incorporating people about two years ago after feeling like i wanted more a more emotive quality in my photos. still, abstractions from reality are dope and i continue to shoot them. check out the miksang approach, especially if you're into buddhist meditation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqGNb5MSOqA

are your shots film? i shot film again for the first time in a year recently but they look so bad -- either the film or the developer need to be replaced. i might post a couple good ones soon.

yeah, the ones from china are just from an iphone 5.

these are older, geometric film shots though.

interesting, to me that just looks like a random photoshop cut and paste
edit: sorry that perhaps sounds a bit high-handed and dismissive, but it really seems sort of pointless to me on both conceptual and pure form level? if it was painted it might look like one of those 70s sci fi novel covers, which could be likeable in its own way. even if he cut it up with scissors and juxtaposed it might have a certain interest. but the ubiquity and frictionlessness of photoshop take away even that

I've been taking pics all summer with the end goal to print them in a book. I'm thinking about going with Artifact Uprising, but it seems like its gonna be p expensive to make multiple copies.
Any other recommendations for photo books?

do you know what type of printing you want to do? i think there are many cheap inkjet printers around as long as you work with some kind of standard paper size (and from my experience the paper types generally are much more limited -- less overhead and stuff). i've never printed hardcover but MGX copy is a local print facility (to me at least, san diego) which i've been pretty pleased with. decently cheap, and fairly good as far as inkjet printing goes. they possibly might have offset capabilities too but i've never had a job been done using it.

if you want to do offset (typically large volume but best print quality by far), there's this place a lot of my buddies have used: http://www.candcprinting.com/eng/

Got back 7 rolls of film spanning the whole summer and back into the summer before (didn't really do much colour stuff during the last year at 6th form bc of access to a b&w darkroom). Finally got the opportunity to scan some of them so thought I'd share them B^)

long post!

@Spaceman it's sort of a laziness thing for me - I got bored on digital how you have to manually adjust ISO, white balance etc. in order to get the photo you want whereas with film that's not so much a consideration - the ISO is mostly dependent on film, as is the colour cast. The grain also really appeals to me, but that's mostly an added bonus, not primarily why

I got to see my friend @alexander delarge this weekend and I was able to get some cool shots in. As always I appreciate criticism, I don't often shoot portraits.

anyone go to the gursky? i thought it was ok. tillmans too, meh (i quite liked the granularity of the lobster). i still don't really see the point of photography-as-art 99% of the time tbh.

i think so much comes down to whether you buy into the whole photography schtick and i'm (perhaps too?) resistant. someone like alec soth's work- based on the little i know- appears to rely on easy aestheticism, cliched ideas of kerouac-ian americana, dumb sense of 'authentic' etc. to say nothing of the whole queasy subject-object relation, economic inequality/exploitation thing. that seems more or less the case for most of those old magnum guys tho?

Not sure what "photography shtick" is. As per your criticism (which I agree with) Alex Soth is just straight shtick, no? And that shtick can rear its ugly head in any sector of art.

Photography can be shtick-free! I think I don't come at the camera with any great desire to orchestrate some overarching provocative/banal/anything-in-between theme, and I like to think that my favourite photographers--many of whom are old Magnum guys--are free of that too. At least, when I look their work, I don't feel like I'm being assailed by any of the negative qualities that are readily evident in Soth's.

I went to the Gursky too and also found it ok. I liked his earlier stuff the most as it actually did feel quite ambiguous and I guess mysterious and the later stuff not so much. Some of the later stuff felt a little bit gimmicky to me, I guess it's interesting how photomanipulation just creates images that look different from photography even if its subtle. When I think of photomanips I think of adverts or gimmicky manips where there's a woman, but her hair is made of leaves now. And actually I feel like a lot of the ways Gursky manipped his photos was also pretty gimmicky, even stuff like the reconstruction of the tokyo cityscape where some buildings are blurred and others are focused felt gimmicky. I guess some of the images felt like they had a complex and interesting thing going on and some really really didn't (hello liquify).

pretty much all photography is gimmick/schtick tbh, its only meaningful/ culturally relevant form at this point is the teen selfie.
