Over the last 12 months, I have been focusing and exploring a number of practitioners and artists that are either predominately photographers or use photography within their practice.

Below are a selection, with some interesting links to articles or videos about them.

Miyako Ishiuchi

Her work favors the oversize grainy prints and gritty subject matter that characterize the pictures of many photographers in the late 1960s and 1970s who preferred the are-bure, or grainy-blurry. She began to take close-ups of the bodies of the very old in the early 1990s. More recently, her photographs have addressed themes of skin, clothing, and time. (Wikipedia)

 

Philip Toledano

In Toledano’s own words, it was in his Father series that he first learned to be free to share his fears and his deepest feelings through his artwork. (Lensculture)

 

Keith Carter

Make the picture. Just make the picture. You’ve got the rest of your life to figure out what it means. (A Profile of Photographer Keith Carter, 2020)
