His latest series of work, ”Daniela, Portrait of my Mother” includes photographs of her naked body and looks to the complexity of their relationship.  This series shows Coniglio’s mother over a long period of time and it is one of continuum, he describes it as a ‘life project’”.

Incredible Photography Lectures via School of Visual Arts’ YouTube Channel

Share

The School of Visual Arts’ YouTube channel contains an incredible array of inspiring and educational photography content. According to PetaPixel “The channel got a well-deserved boost this week when photographer Dan Culberson stumbled across it and shared it with the Reddit community. Tons of hour-long lectures can be found on the channel’s Images, Ideas, Inspiration playlist, most of them photography related and all of them fascinating”.

There really is something for everyone here to enjoy, not least Jack Hollingsworth’s mobile photography talk entitled ‘Small Camera Big Results’, which we published at the time. There’s also content with Joe McNally, Saul Leiter, Cig Harvey – Fine Art Photographer, Carrie Beene – Beauty and Product Retoucher and so much more.

We have subscribed to this channel and we recommend that you do to via this link.

Share

Oh yes! I love Justine Tjallinks’ photography and I am so proud that my interview with her has just been published to Vogue. My column at Vogue looks at the philosophy of the photographer as well as their incredible portfolios.

Please do take a look at Tjallinks work and of course, read my interview: ”Tjallinks art is about openness, communication and it is about consciousness, specifically raising it, with delicacy, skill and intuition. She upturns the industry’s fickleness and by extension of herself, uses the camera as a humanitarian aid, so we can all bathe and breathe in the gloriousness that she creates” Interview by Joanne Carter

Photography – TriggerTrap Goes Out of Business…

Share

I am saddened to report that TriggerTrap, a company that we have highlighted many times here at TheAppWhisperer, over the years, (see here), has announced that it has failed. It was launched in 2011 and its initial Kickstarter campaign raised over $500,000, which was well past its $77,000 goal. But, it seemed that that achievement was also its undoing. In 2015 Triggertrap announced that it would not be able to deliver to its backers due to under estimating the costs of developing and manufacturing the new trigger.

In a blog post on Medium published yesterday, Triggertrap founder and CEO Haje Jan Kamps said that his company had been treading water ever since that failed Kickstarter.

“We’ve gone through several rounds of lay-offs to keep the company afloat, but ultimately, ended up being unable to save Triggertrap.

Today, we are announcing that the company is going to close down”.

I feel so sorry for TriggerTrap, they were a good and honest company and had worked so hard. I must confess that despite donations theappwhisperer.com has been operating at a loss for some years now, despite working hundreds of hours each week. Sometimes, the only thing we have left to give is our passion, courage and desperate belief in ourselves and others. I hate to ask but if you do find any joy and value in what I do, please consider a donation, it can make all the difference.

PhotoShelter did an amazing thing this year, they do it a lot of the time but in particular, in 2016, their community donated to 44 individual photographer projects in an effort they called “Funded by PhotoShelter.” They watched in awe as these photographers raised nearly $2 million to tell their stories.
