Progressive Saturday Night (v.79) by Batsceba
Loneliness belongs to the PhotographersI don't think I'm essentially a street photographer. I guess Photography is just the way for me to express how I see things. It has something to do with a philosophical approach to reality. I have always had this way of observing reality, dwelling on details, on scenes that tell me something. Early on in my life, I felt inspired by what was around me. Eventually, I got into street photography. It was a slow process. And this happened in a city that was not my hometown, where my view got released from all the parameters and preconceptions that you naturally develop in known places. What I perceived in that new urban landscape and became the ghost I kept freezing everywhere and in everyone’s face with my shots was an intense feeling of loneliness. As a photographer, I am already used to entering the world of loneliness because I must be able to become invisible. So I found myself breathing in my own loneliness and the solitude of those around me.

“But the harshness of his steely glare was compensated by the softness of his cotton gloves,
so that, as he approached Swann, he seemed to be exhibiting
at once an utter contempt for his person and the most tender regard for his hat.”
― Marcel Proust, Swann's Way

The moment we pulled up in front of her apartment she had the door open.
She turned to me with the long, elegant, mournful face of her Puritan ancestors and held out her hand.
'It's been fun,' she said.'Yes,' I said, taking her hand. She was wearing gloves."

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. - C. S. Lewis

Street photography and telephoto lens Community Week
There is no “perfect” focal length for Street Photography
Many photographers are not a fan of using telephoto lenses in street photography. Generally they find telephoto lenses too impersonal, without the sense of intimacy that lenses with  focal lengths of 28mm-55mm (35mm and 50mm in particular) produce. The believe that these shorter focal lengths force you to get closer to your subject (sharing their human condition and feeling their environment).
However, if you analyze  the works of Leiter, whose street photography is shot with a relatively long lens you have to change your mind: he compresses his scenes creating a peculiar geometric vision
Here's what Leiter responds to Dean Brierly
D.B.: Many of your images have a compressed spatial perspective.

“I always think about what it means to wear eyeglasses. When you get used to glasses you don't know how far you could really see. I think about all the people before eyeglasses were invented. It must have been weird because everyone was seeing in different ways according to how bad their eyes were. Now, eyeglasses standardize everyone's vision to 20-20. That's an example of everyone becoming more alike. Everyone could be seeing at different levels if it weren't for glasses.”

'Cause I'm not a real street photographer: yesterday, as I was waiting for someone, with my nikon hanging around my neck, I started to take a look around. And that's how I got it. I'm a photographer of the wait. I don't look for shots. I find them in the pauses. That's why I love to take pictures in the subway, in bars: because I wait for the right shot, I don't look for it. All in all, it perfectly fits with my being. I'm motionless, it's life that changes my colour, my age. -Batsceba Hardy

perché non sono una vera fotografa di strada: ieri, aspettando una persona, con la mia nikon al collo, ho cominciato a guardarmi attorno. ed è così che ho capito. io sono una fotografa dell'attesa. non cerco gli scatti. li trovo nelle pause. per questo amo fotografare nella metropolitana, nei bar: perché aspetto lo scatto, non lo cerco. ma in fondo combacia perfettamente con il mio essere. io sono immobile, è la vita che mi trasforma, colora, invecchia. - Batsceba Hardy

soundtrack: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iucRHs…

I've stopped thinking. and i'm dumb waiting for the Great Mystery hug. I've been looking for it wandering about the streets in a city that doesn't belong to me, I've been looking for it letting water drop on me to shut my pain up. yet i've just met the other's rage and i've been annihilated. like i was annihilated as a child before someone raising their voice, a slap in the face i didn't understand. i'm not cut out for life. i don't have nails. i always expect understanding, explanations, love. but i can't change. and i'll keep on roaming with my disability to live, listening to the distant echo of the Great Mystery which will ease my pain. i don't know how to live but i know how to love. and i'll keep on walking trying not to to tread on the ant crossing my path.

Happy Happy Birthday Niklas aka Niklin1Niklas Lindskog: a great photographer and a generous friend


"Started out at 13 with a great course in photography led by a professional. Had my own lab until I moved away from home. My interest got a real boost as I bought my first DSLR in 2009.

Exceptional Photographers - Niklas Lindskog
This month we present Swedish photographer Niklas Lindskog :iconniklin1:
TPA - Tell us a little about yourself. How did your relationship with Photography begin and how has it developed through the years?
NL - I'm Niklas Lindskog, 51 years old. I live in Umea in northern Sweden, a university town of about 120 000 people (European Capital of Culture in 2014).
My family is my wife Anna-Lena and our grown children Sam, still at home at 19, and Oskar, 22, who has moved away from home. I've worked for 24 years as a track and field coach at a national sports school. Nowadays my role at work is more about school and sports administration.
I started out in photography at the age of 13 when I told my parents that I wanted to make movies. They thought I should learn the basics first with still photography. My mom found me an evening course, which was on a pretty high level, covering all bases from composition and lighting to printing and developin

IN THIS ISSUE

Peppe Di Donato: Loro di Napoli

“In the street there is always something to discover and to capture in one shot.” 

Niklas Lindskog: Beijing - La Joie de Vivre

“When I look at my old negatives, I realize I shot something similar to street photography right from the start.” 

Jinn Jyh Leow: A street photographer in a dead zone

Pure serendipity – that’s how I discovered Street Photography and that’s what I love about it." 

Hiroyuki Nakada: A Japanese street photographer in Shanghai  Researched by Michael  Kennedy

Why subscribe

It is simple: because ProgressivE-Zine will not be the usual street photography magazine. 

Our vision is to use cameras to document cultural and social events across the globe - thanks to a network of first-class photographers.

The talent involved in this project reflects photographers from some of the biggest cities  in the world-to-small, obscure towns. This wide-ranging background offers a unique opportunity to share the stories of people that reflect endless cultures in this pageant of humanity.

Moreover, we will offer a professional showroom of the best photographs of Progressive citizens. 

ProgressivE-Zine will be downloadable in a non-printable high-quality format from our site.

Yet our intention is to also offer a traditional printed version; we all love the tangible experience involved in leafing through a photography book for all the insights and inspiration possible.

 

 

With best regards, the editors: 
Batsceba Hardy, Robert Bannister, Fabio Balestra, Michael Kennedy
