Keisuke Takahashi is a photographer who lives in Tokyo. He bought an iPhone4S in December 2011 and it opened the way to express his feeling in photography. Four years and little has passed since then. Now he’s aiming to express the strong and deep representation in B&W Photography with various cameras like DSLR, Film SLR, Film compact camera but his main camera is still iPhone. He held his first exhibition “The Lighthouse Man” in February 2016. The idea of this project came out of his divorce experience in 2014. He defines Lighthouse as a symbol of the isolation, and he tried to shoot himself as the lighthouse man who watches the ships run through the ocean of life. Not only the photograph, “The Lighthouse Hat” was created by himself also.

The Others and I

by Anne-Martine Parent

My work consists mostly of two types of photography: street photography and self-portraits. Although these two genres may seem opposed to each other, they are, for me, inextricably linked in that my concern is always to explore and interrogate life, from the everyday to the life-changing experiences (loss, mourning, trauma). Opening myself to the others, using myself and the others, I try to record and document the insignificant and the trivial as well as the defining moments of our existences, the strength and the tenuousness of our lives.

I am a literature professor at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (Canada), specializing in Contemporary and Women’s Literature (in French), with a focus on autobiographical practices. I rediscovered photography with my iPhone. I only do mobile photography (or iphoneography as it is often called). At first, I was only interested in Hipstamatic (the classic version) ; there’s something very melancholic about it that got me hooked. Gradually, I started processing my pictures with apps like Snapseed, BlurFx, ImageBlender, DistressedFx, and so on. The ones I use regularly now are Snapseed, VSCOcam, and Mextures. I still shoot most of my photos with Hipstamatic, although I now use oggl instead of the classic Hipstamatic app.

dixie’s s-bahn

by J. Christopher Matyjasik

I’ve been working on this series for well over a year and only three works have been prepared for print production at this point. I’ve been known to get halfway through a project, throw everything I’ve done out and start over. I don’t even have a definitive title (I don’t usually title a series until I’ve finished it). But I decided to just go ahead and share what I can of this in-progress project with you. What you see here is a peek inside my studio, at what i’m doing right now. It is not complete…

These days, I work on a whole series at once. I am still a drawer, painter, and assembler at heart. I see photographs two ways…an end…and a source material. Below are twelve examples, I’ve selected to share with you, of the source material for this project…and then the first three “completed” works, fresh off the griddle.
