Photographer of the week: Girolamo Cracchiolo

Our photographer of the week is Girolamo Cracchiolo, a French photographer living in a city called “Chambéry”.
Girolamo does not consider himself a professional photographer, but a keen photographer.
In Girolamo’s own words :

“A photo, in my opinon will never perfectly represent reality, because reality is constantly moving and so the picture becomes a snapshot in time.

Reality has an odour and sounds, aspects that can never be captured in the static silence of a photograph.

This is why I do not worry about making my photographs realistic. In fact I focus on conveying emotion through my photography. If I can get the viewer to sense the emotions I feel when looking at a beautiful sunset or admiring the architecture of a majestic church, then I have successfully achieved my goal. “

Photographer of the week: Serge Ramelli

Our photographer of the week is Serge Ramelli, a french photographer living in Paris. Serge does commercial work and teaches photography, Photoshop & Lightroom.
His influence are photographers like Joel Grimes, Moose Peterson and Jean Michel Berts. Serge has been doing a lot of HDR, but over the last couple of years, he finds that just using Lightroom with one good expose raw file gets a more natural and “punchy” result.

One of his most interesting photography series is an urban landscape series called “Paris cinema”, where he takes photos of Paris in beautiful lights. He’s been doing it for 7 years now and his collection consists of over 200 beautiful photos.
Sadly I can only share with 10 pictures of those in this post. I leave you to check out his website for the full dose of HDR photography.

Photographer of the week: Kai Michael

Kai Michael is a fine art photographer based in Bellingham, WA. His images, although highly altered in digital postproduction, begin as either medium or large format film negatives.
Much of his influence is drawn, conceptually, from a fascination with the reconstructive nature of memory, and formally, from the Color Field and Lyrical Abstraction movements

I leave you to enjoy 10 of his selected pictures that can be grouped into 3 main series:

  • Constructed Horizons series:  These are constructed landscapes. Everything located above the horizon is not native to the original image, consisting of either walls or surfaces. By substituting the skyline with a finite surface, the image fluctuates between the physical and the infinite
  • Homes series: A study in the absurd, all of the windows have been removed.
  • Untitled – ultrachrome from film
