A photoset by David Alan Harvey


Let me show you a set of works by a wonderful American photographer David Alan Harvey. If you’re in love with beautiful color and work on revealing it in you own photographs, you should by all means see this set! Getting as many visual experiences as possible is the great staple for any present-day photographer. No need to mention that David’s photography presents much more artistic value than just plain color solutions.

4×5 Kodachromes


My Russian blog started to be visited by many English speaking readers after I posted the following post. I thought it would be great to give this post a special place in my new English blog, and let it be one of the first publications.

I regularly visit the www.shorpy.com in order to get inspired by the colors of Kodachrome photo film. This website is quite famous and contains a lot of archived photographs, I am sure many of you already know it. My wish was to make a personal selection of photographs I particularly like, in good quality. I hope that you will appreciate them as well. All the pictures have been taken during 1940-1943. Now just look at them and get inspired.

A set of photographs by Alex Webb


Some time ago in my Russian-version blog I posted a link to a set of works made by that remarkable photographer. Browsing his web-site later I decided to make my own collection of his photos. I grabbed 130 shots and here I will share 41 of my favourites with you. My set differs from that of my friend Andrey Zeigarnik. I like Andrey’s choice too (moreover, my interest in Webb started there), but when you research something by yourself that gives you comprehensive view on creative works of great ones. Thus if you like these photos, I advise you to browse Alex Webb’s web-site and mix your own collection.
