Tracey Emin – A Fortnight of Tears – Exclusive Video and Insight

Share

I happily spent this morning/early afternoon with Tracey Emin at a press invitation to her brand new exhibition entitled ‘A Fortnight of Tears‘ at the White Cube, Bermondsey, London, SE1. This is a major exhibition installed throughout the gallery’s spaces, exhibits include sculpture, neon, painting, film, photography and drawing, all focusing on Emin’s own memories and emotions, arising from loss, pathos, anger and love.

This exhibition is one to feast upon, throughout the exhibition Emin articulates the joy and suffering that is intrinsic to our human existence. Often with fraught memories of sexual relations, the very physical and emotional trauma she endured with her abortion of twins (past three months pregnancy), and most notably the passing of her mother. Pain is very much of the theme of ‘A Fortnight of Tears’, works shown in the North Galleries in particular evoke states of bereavement, grief and abiding love.

The vast bronze sculpture entitled ‘The Mother (2017), relates to Emin’s public commission for Oslo’s Museum Island, which will be permanently installed beside the Edvard Much Museum from late spring 2020. A kneeling nude, gazing intently upon an absent form, a ghost perhaps, cradled in her palms, she is a philiosophical symbol of femininity and sanctuary. There are two further impassioned bronze sculptures exhibited throughout this vast space.

Our film captured below includes a question that I asked her, from the call out that I sent out a few weeks ago. This is Lisa Mitchell’s question and Emin addresses it with much passion.

I loved Tracey Emin’s work prior to meeting her today, now, if it’s possible I love it even more. If you do get a chance to visit this exhibition I strongly recommend it. It is open to the public from 6 February – 7 April 2019, White Cube, Bermondsey, London. Do go!

Mobile Videography – MoJo – Interview with Chris Demiris and Terri Morgan from LumaTouch

Share

We are delighted to publish the first of a new series of mobile videography developer interviews edited by Vanessa Vox. This week Vox talks with Chris Demiris and Terri Morgan from LumaTouch. I think you will enjoy this very much… (foreword by Joanne Carter)

“LumaClip and LumaFX (released 2016) are two powerful iOS video apps they come highly recommended and are easy to use. Thus, I was very curious to know more about the developers behind these innovative new products.

In 2013 Chris Demiris (Engineering) and Terri Morgan (Design) co-founded ‘LumaTouch’ in Sandy (Utah, USA). Their intention was to ‘create innovative video products that take full advantage of modern touch interfaces’.

Previously Demiris and Morgan were the principal designer and the lead developer of ‘Pinnacle Studio’ for iOS. Their newly founded company ‘LumaTouch’ is still responsible for the updates of this well known and awarded video editing app. Currently a major overhaul of ‘Pinnacle Studio’ and ‘Pinnacle Studio Pro’ is under way.

The secret behind the success of LumaTouch is the development of the ‘SpryEngine’, the result of three years work. Spry is a powerful framework for developing video apps utilising the latest features of iOS. It is for this reason that LumaTouch is taking a leadership position.

The ‘SpryEngine’ is designed to handle many layers. The app LumaFX as an example is built on this basis, and allows to add up to eight real time effects on a clip. This was almost impossible before. It means more speed, more functions and more fun for the users.

Now let’s have a talk with Terri and Chris about their work and their vision”.

Exclusive and Intimate Interview with Thomas Hurst – Photojournalist and Creator of COVR Photo Lens

Share

Thomas Hurst is an admirable man and one that I am very pleased to know and call a friend. Originally, he was introduced to me by one of our Columnists and also good friend, Kevin Kuster – former Senior Photo Editor for Playboy Magazine.  Hurst created the COVR lens case and launched a hugely successful campaign via Kickstarter last year for the iPhone 5 raising over $85,000, today he has launched a new campaign for the iPhone 6, you can read more about that here.

I have been intrigued by Hurst for sometime, and wanted to learn more. Within this conversation, mostly in his own words, Hurst takes us through his experiences of becoming, enduring and surviving being a war photographer. He talks us through his devastation of his wife’s colon cancer diagnosis late in pregnancy and the subsequent loss of his son. He talks about the motivation for creating the COVR Photo Lens – it may not be what you’re thinking and he discusses the production process of this great product.

I am suitably humbled to publish this conversation and thank Thomas from the bottom of my heart, for sharing so much with us today. I wish him every success with his new Kickstarter campaign. Please, enjoy…

Dreams From The Digital Darkroom – Interview with Co-creator of Photoshop – Thomas Knoll

Share

On February 19, 1990, an unknown software product called Photoshop arrived on store shelves, offering entirely new ways for professional photographers and designers to modify and create digital images. At the time, its creators could never have imagined just how influential Photoshop would become, eventually being used in industries as diverse as publishing, advertising, fine art, web design, film, medicine, law enforcement, fashion, government, video games, and countless other fields.

This interview is with Thomas Knoll who co-created Photoshop with his brother, special effects pioneer John Knoll, about the worldwide phenomenon that the brothers’ team effort has grown into and just how, exactly, it all began, twenty-five years ago…
