Scientific Portraits

Portrait of the Week:

Late last year, Elena Zhukova was commissioned to photograph the five Nobel Laureates who teach at UC Berkeley.

With her subjects’ expertise ranging from astrophysics to economics, Zhukova applied her own photographic skill in capturing these titans of research in their element.

Here is her portrait of 2013 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine winner Randy Schekman.

AtEdge. The best commercial photographers in the world.

Portrait of the Week: Kid Edition

Baby and kid photography is particularly difficult because you cannot communicate in a detailed and complex manner with your subject. You must be skilled in not only framing, lighting, and composition but you must also be adept at keeping a little person content and directing their attention to the camera. Thankfully, AtEdge photographer Lisa Wiseman possesses these skills and more.

Personalities begin to form well before a person is able to speak and Wiseman’s portraits capture the beginnings of a consciousness, of a being that may not know what the mechanical object is in front of it’s face but it knows that everyone gets super happy when they smile and so they may as well smile.

The person in this week’s portrait is not smiling though. He is interested, critical even, of his experience in front of the camera. He is matching the photographer’s gaze in a remarkable way, certainly not expected from a child. You can’t help but wonder what type of person his little guy will grow up to be.

Be sure to explore Lisa Wiseman’s AtEdge portfolio and website for more outstanding work.

 

Behind the Cover: Macroview 14

Let’s explore the collection of photographs by Andy Anderson which produced the cover for AtEdge Macroview 14, the large format collection of the best commercial photographers in world.

Macroview 14

The oil fields of Kern County are otherworldly. Obscured by the Tule fog, the pumpjacks and pipes can appear to go on forever. The men who work in these fields are subjected to physical and chemical hazards. Many are migrant oil workers, traveling from site to site for six months at a time. Others live in the dust of Taft and Bakersfield. Sacrifice and danger: the conditions that produced the oil millions of years ago are repeated by those who are hired to retrieve it.

Despite being known as black gold, Anderson captured the colorful sheen that the oil produces, not unlike the rainbow stream that flows from a car wash. Like oil, Anderson’s photographs adhere to your mind’s eye, reminding you of the humanity found in this line of work.

R & M

The letters “R” and “M” could stand for a variety of things: rambunctious and mysterious, realistic and macabre, rollicking and multidimensional.

In our case, “R” and “M” are the initials of a photography duo whose work happens to embody all of the aforementioned adjectives.

Ransom & Mitchell are Jason Mitchell [director | photographer] & Stacey Ransom [set designer | photo illustrator] and their combination of visual strengths have produced the Portrait of the Week titled “Hubris”.
