5 photographers on the .ART

They hide behind their lenses, their material, no longer under a dark drape. They use small portable cameras, phones, rarely film, and the plates are now long gone. They are photographers - visual storytellers - no matter if they stumble on the story or create it from scratch.

Photography has been around for almost 200 years. The evolution through which the technical aspect of it has gone through is remarkable. From glass plate to metal one, from a whole lab following you in your wagon while you are trailing the world, photography is now a simple click away on our photo. What those images are depicting has remained to an extent the same. Fashion has evolved. Portraits of family or strangers, and landscapes far away and close by, the family’s pet, the brand-new car, the ravages of wars, the everyday life – all have been recorded through light. They are a record of memories, of the decisive moment as the well-known photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson coined. They are an analysis of truth and falsehood – of denial and concealment, of interpretation, of bringing in or keeping out – we are framing the moment on which we want to pause, capture. They are a story that the one behind the device wants to tell to the world. Here are 5 photographers who have adopted the .ART who have in common their medium but their own unique way of telling their visual stories.


 

Photography is the art of creating long-lasting images by recording light digitally or by analog means.
