A Near Perfect Encapsulation For What a ‘Good Picture’ Should Do.

In Ethics on November 5, 2016 at 12:19 PM

“If it makes you laugh, if it makes you cry, if it rips out your heart, that’s a good picture” ~ Eddie Adams

PHOTOGRAPHER, ASSOCIATED PRESS

A combat photographer since the Korean War, Eddie Adams joined the Associated Press team in Vietnam in 1965. He became famous for his 1968 photograph of Gen. Nguyen Ngoc Loan, chief of South Vietnam’s national police, shooting a Viet Cong prisoner in the head. Adams later regretted the picture’s notoriety, preferring to be remembered for his images of Vietnamese refugees after the war.

Adams’s time covering the war and the searing photograph above marks fifty years since the start of America’s first televised war and is symbolic of how dramatic stories authored by photojournalists and journalists brought news about the war to the rest of the world.

In-Print | A Small Selection Of Magazine Tear Sheets

In Photography News on April 4, 2016 at 3:29 AM

The interaction between photographer and designer is an often fractious one. Competing agendas can ensue. Some designers view photographs as creative visual building blocks that are merely part of an end design.
Most photographers view their authored images as sacrosanct. They strongly object to their photographs being altered – in any way – to fit a preordained design.
Sparks can fly!
Below are several examples of where a confluence of design and photography have found a creative and aesthetic balance.

Reinterpretation

In Random Moments on February 27, 2016 at 4:35 AM

Interesting to see one of my iconic photographs [Novice Monks, Golden Horse Monastery] in a copy artists shop in central Bangkok being reinterpreted as a painting.

It is unfinished, and the artist was nowhere to be found. As a photographer, it is odd to see one of your photographs morphing into another medium. Odd — good — so far.

I am curious to enter into a dialogue with the artist and intrigued to see what it will look like when finished.

Exciting.

Boko Haram – Kidnappers

Boko Haram 

Boko_Haram_leader__Abubakar_Shekau_916127537(Above) Leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, gloatingly threatening to sell the girls as “slaves”.
 
Despairingly, when you ask yourself quietly can the world get any more screwed up then it already is, then something like Boko Haram confirms – that indeed it can.
Boko Haram is holding 276 girls from a raid on a school in Chibok on 15 April and a further eight, aged between eight and 15, taken in an overnight raid from their village.
Boko Haram literal translation is – Western learning is forbidden – it is a is a Nigerian Islamist militant group made up of dispersed cells and factions mainly in the northeast of the country. There main objective to make northern Nigeria an Islamic state. What this has to do with kidnapping innocent young school girls we may never really now. Drum roll…….dut da da dut.. da da… meet (see attached pix + video) the clearly charismatic, urbane, erudite and visionary leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, gloatingly threatening to sell the girls as “slaves”.
What a fine specimen of manhood – a luminary. I despair.

Hong Kong Panoramas: Boxed Edition Fine Art Black and White Prints

In Photography News on November 29, 2013 at 6:56 AM

Hong Kong Panoramas: Boxed Edition Fine Art Black and White Prints

Jack Picone

The burgeoning international interest in “fine art” traditional black and white photography has been a positive by-product of the revolution in digital technology that has occurred in recent years.

The reasoning of collectors is simple: the ability to produce traditional black and white photography is becoming a rarity, and the genre is being elevated into a more specialised, valuable form of artistic expression. Prudent collectors have gained from the opportunity to purchase unique works of photographic art with a potential financial upside.

These considerations have shaped the thought behind the creation of these exquisite prints. Each beautiful tailor-made box contains seven hand-crafted black and white silver gelatin prints. To ensure the highest possible standards, prints displaying the appropriate mood and quality were individually selected. The rich fibre-based paper adds to the quality and ensures exacting gallery standards.

The photographs were authored between 2005 and 2012 during several visits to Hong Kong by award-winning documentary photographer Jack Picone. They were taken using the legendary Hasselblad X Pan 11 Panoramic film camera which allowed Jack to extend his reputation for capturing nuanced, lyrical images in the finest tradition of the genre.

Each photograph invites interpretation and captures fragments of life in one of the world’s most vibrant, and most vertical, cities. Together they ask the viewer to reflect on the past, present and future of Hong Kong as the cityscape is placed under a sharp focus and reflected through the highest photographic standards.

The hand-crafted and individually signed prints are on archival gallery paper and each measures 24 X 8 inches, inclusive of a two-inch white border. They are presented in a stylish box made of the finest acid free paper and archivally sound materials.

About the Artist

Jack Picone is the recipient of several of photography’s most prestigious international awards. These include the World Press Awards, the U.S. Photographer of The Year Awards (POY), the Mother Jones/IFDP Grant for Social Documentary Photography and a UNESCO Documentary Photography Award. His work has been exhibited in major galleries and venues worldwide, including the National Portrait Gallery in Australia and at the prestigious Visa d’Or Reportage Festival in France.

For the past 25 years Picone has covered wars and major social issues in Asia, Africa and Europe. He is a co-founder of Australia’s REPORTAGE photography festival, the founder of Communiqué (a series of documentary photography workshops in Asia) and a member of the collective SOUTH. He recently completed a PhD in Visual Arts at Griffith University in Queensland Australia, and lectures in photography at universities in Australia and Hong Kong.

Picone’s training in photography was in using black and white film and mastering traditional darkroom print-making. It is a passion that has never faded thanks to the medium’s unrivalled capacity for both subtlety and drama. As legendary photographer Robert Frank expressed it in 1951: “Black and white are the colours of photography. To me they symbolise the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”

Born in Australia, Picone is currently based in Bangkok and Hong Kong.

Print Sales

Hong Kong Panoramas: Boxed Edition Fine Art Black and White Prints is limited to 10 box sets containing 7 beautifully hand crafted prints priced at US$10,000 (exclusive of shipping).
