STEPPING OUT OF THE SHADOWS

AFTER GARNERING INTEREST FROM POSTS ON FLICKR, THIS SELF-TAUGHT PHOTOGRAPHER RECEIVED CRITICAL ACCLAIM AND ORGANICALLY GREW AN ONLINE FOLLOWING FOR HIS EXQUISITE LOW-LIGHT IMAGES. LET’S HEAR IT FOR MIKKO LAGERSTEDT…

MIKKO LAGERSTEDT’S images do all the talking. No, scrap that. They scream and shout brilliance. From the modest beginnings of posting images to Flickr, self-taught photographer Mikko has managed to grab the attention of the photography world and forge a following of fans.

«To be honest, I really didn’t expect anything from my pictures,» says Mikko. «At first, I just went out and took photos and posted them in Flickr.

RUSSIAN roulette is not an intellectually demanding game, and it is probably best played when you are extremely drunk. For those unfamiliar with the rules, they are simple. You load one chamber of a revolver, leaving the others empty; close your eyes; spin the cylinder; hold the gun to your own head, and pull the trigger. Assuming it has the customary six chambers, you have a five out of six chance of survival. I have to admit that I’ve never played it, and I don’t think that this has much to do with the fact that my favourite revolver, my

Night Climbing

Why should Thomas Mailaender, a contemporary artist known for his impudent provocations, want to present us with photographs of students climbing on the roofs and walls of colleges at the University of Cambridge in the mid-i930s?

The Night Climbers of Cambridge was first published in 1937, by Chatto & Windus, a respectable publishing house in London. (The book, illustrated with photographs, was recently reissued by Oleander Press.) Mailaender, attracted by this peculiar venture, bought the original pictures and assembled them as a traveling exhibition. An odd choice, at first sight, but Mailaender has always been attracted by makeshift spoofs and

NEED TO KNOW SONYS 4K SECRETS

You can swap your 40in TV for a 65in one

All those extra pixels mean that you can comfortably sit closer to the screen, as Scot Barbour, Vice President of Production Technology at Sony Pictures, explains. “Basically, to be able to even see 4K resolution, there’s a given distance sweet spot from the screen, one and a half screen heights away. So you’re going to want to have a bigger screen and be closer to it to actually be able to perceive 4K for what it’s really about.” What’s that? Not just a new TV, but a bigger one? OK…

LITTLE STORIES

Using an iPad as a camera might not seem the most logical step, but for Carolyn Quartermaine it’s her second best tool — her first being her discerning eye. Tim Clinch discovers a photographer who is following in the footsteps of some of the great and undiscovered masters of their day.

Karl Blossfeldt and Charles Jones are two of my favourite photographers. What do they have in common? They weren’t ‘photographers’, that’s what. They had little idea about the beauty of their work during their lifetime, never considered themselves to be photographers (they were, respectively, a botanist and a gardener)

LIFE THROUGH A DRAINPIPE

As we embark on the Champions League season. Reuters photographer PHIL NOBLE talks to Will Roberts about his love of sport and the conflicts within the industry.

At 38, Phil Noble is still a young man in the world of photography, but he speaks with the authority, experience and passion of someone much older.

His career — starting off as a newspaper photographer before moving on to news agencies -has coincided with a massively significant time in the news industry; a period of substantial upheaval. He took his first steps as a professional photographer when the printed media was king,

Eyes Open

So what was I doing differently? Basically I was getting connected, looking, seeing and feeling the landscape but reacting to it visually. Sometimes I would sit for hours in one place just watching what was going on, the way the sun flashed over the hills or how the clouds accelerated above my head or the way the wind and tides left patterns on beaches’ sand.

Landscape photography had become a truly emotional experience.

The Best Spot

I would encourage all, or at least more, of you to try this approach. I’ve been out shooting so many times recently

Effortless portraits

Seasoned pro George Lange has photographed everything from the cast of Seinfeld to the births of his sons with a light-hearted touch that makes his thoughtful and emotional pictures appear completely spontaneous. We talked to him to find out how he does it and got his tips so you can try it yourself.

How did you get started shooting?

EDITORS LETTER

I’ve often heard photographers, particularly those specialising in landscape work, say they feel satisfied with an image when it conveys the feelings they had at the time it was taken.

A completely understandable sentiment. But, back in July, I had quite the opposite experience.

I was in the South of France, partly for a holiday and partly to take in the magnificent photography festival in Arles.

It was quite by chance that I discovered the Tour de France was starting out from Aix en Provence on the day I was visiting the town. I’m not a great cycling fan but
