Celine Marchbank: A Stranger in my Mother
After her mother's death in 2010, Celine Marchbank started to clear out her mother's house, sorting through everything she had left behind. As she stood staring at the boxes in her home, still in a state of shock, she began to discover her recipes, beautiful handwritten notes. Her mother Sue Miles, had been a head-chef for 40 years; described in her obituary in The Guardian as 'the doyenne of the British restaurant revolution' She was also one of the first female head chefs in Britain.
Visa Pour L
Yet another year where photojournalists have been prominent in tragedy. First there was Afghanistan, then Ukraine, not to mention so many other theaters of war, violence and atrocities standing as clear and often cruel evidence to prove that photojournalism is a leader in advocating human rights, condemning war crimes, and defending freedom of information, i.e. the right to critical information in a context of democratic debate.
Le Saut: Pernod Ricard Arts Mentorship 2022
Pernod Ricard's constant commitment to creation dates back to the origins of the Group under the aegis of the insatiable entrepreneur and artist that was my grandfather, Paul Ricard. The recent opening of the new exhibition space of the Pernod Ricard Foundation, in our Parisian headquarters, is a testament to what remains cardinal to us: art is only meaningful if it is shared.
Alys Tomlinson: Gli Isolani (The Islanders)
Tomlinson has spent the last two years exploring the lives of islanders in modern-day Italy, capturing little- known rituals and traditions inspired by paganism, fables and folklore. These almost theatrical images document traditional costumes and masks, preserved and handed down for generations, worn during festivities and celebrations in Sicily, Sardinia and islands of the Venetian lagoon. The project provides a meditation on place, faith and identity.

Amongst 20 of the Best Portrait Photographers on All About Photo
Portrait photography, or portraiture, is probably the most popular and one of the oldest forms of photography. Portraits are often about capturing the personality of the subject, using effective lighting, backdrops, and a variety of different candid and staged poses. But more and more photographers take their portraits around the world without the help of a studio environment. Portrait photography, in this case, seems even more honest and candid, compared to staged pictures, as some of these people might be photographed for the first time in their life.

Olmsted Trees by Stanley Greenberg
Fundamental to renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted's vision in his park designs was the key role of time. He had the ability to see a plot of land for what it was in the raw undeveloped state, as well as to visualize how his designs would translate several decades into the future after the trees and shrubs he planted had rooted and spread and integrated with the space. In a letter to his son he wrote

Uncommon West by Dean Forbes
The images on this portfolio are from an 11-day, 3,000-mile road trip I took in April 2022 from my home just north of Seattle, Washington, to Santa Fe, New Mexico and back through parts of seven states. My goal was to produce a body of work of uncommon scenes - or at least those that most don’t associate with the traditional Western landscape.

Fading Memories by Dale Niles
When the covid pandemic started and everyone was ask to isolate, I found myself becoming so nostalgic, missing people that were no longer with us and the people that were here but I was not able to see. A favorite pastime of mine is going through old photographs. As I looked through stacks of boxes I began to think more and more about the people in these images. Some of them had lived through a pandemic themselves. I recognized some of them, even recalled their names. Some of them were familiar but I was unable to recall much about them. Seeing them sparked questions. Wishing my parents or older relatives were still alive to fill in the blanks.
Keepers of the West by Landry Major
Landry Major is a fine art photographer living in Los Angeles. She stands in awe of nature, and of the inner life of human beings. Through her lens she seeks to reveal the subtle fire, the hidden hero of her subjects. Her recent work has brought her to a vision of a simpler life, a culture deeply connected to the rugged terrain of the disappearing American West. In it she has found the quiet strength of its stoic people, and the majestic animals they coexist with. In her series Keepers of the West and Winter’s Horses, she provides a fleeting glimpse of a life and time that can only be found under America’s wide-open western skies.
Coney Island People 50 years by Harvey Stein
Widely celebrated New York street photographer Harvey Stein is known, in part, for his ability to notice the beautiful, mundane, quirky aspects of human nature and caught moments and in doing so, elevate the everyday to a space of wonder. Coney Island People 50 Years (Schiffer, July 26, 2022) traces Stein's love affair with Coney Island over time with a collection of 174 evocative black and white photographs spanning 1970 to 2020 that focus on the people who populate this legendary place. It's his third book about Coney. The first was published by W.W. Norton in 1998 and simply called Coney Island. The second, the acclaimed Coney Island 40 Years, was published in 2011, also by Schiffer. Twenty-three of Stein's favorite images from the 40 year book are included in the new work
