Amanda x Eli

I’ve shared Amanda Charchian‘s photography on The Visual Female before and could possibly share it everyday if I had the energy. I really love her style and what she chooses to capture. I recently discovered a collaboration between Charchian and Eli Craven which I adore and just had to share with you. Here’s a few snaps I liked, but to see more and also get to know Charchian better you can check out this interview at Oyster magazine.

William Mortensen

William Mortensen was a photographer who worked mainly between 1920-40 taking amazing photographs with a romantic, painterly quality. His early work includes many portraits of Hollywood actresses and actors. Mortensen used particular chemicals in the developing process of his images to make many of them look more like a painting than a photograph. The result is truly striking artwork that is incredibly captivating. Not only did Mortensen have his distinct (and unpopular with other photographers) style, but his subject matter is also a little peculiar. A fascination with monsters, the supernatural and witchcraft is present in his personal work. As Mortensen would have had his birthday a few days ago (Jan 27) making him the oddball Aquarian of the Zodiac, it makes perfect sense that his work was totally different to his contemporaries. So much that he was even likened to the ‘anti-Christ’. A little far-fetched I would argue, but I do love his work pretty deeply and I do adore Von Trier’s film Antichrist which only makes me wonder what people would say about me? But in all seriousness I am so glad he is being fully appreciated today and am honoured to share his work. I have included a selection of his witch-inclined images below for you to enjoy. Go be naughty! Cackle. x

Ellen Rogers

Ellen Rogers has to be one of my favourite photographers. Her amazing work is always feminine and evocative, with subject matter often acquiring a dark, haunting beauty. Rogers work is entirely analogue, using traditional methods in every photograph she produces, which is an impressive feat in this modern age. This series has a lovely Virgin feel to it which is somewhat fitting with December 25 upon us. Check it out and see what you think.

This vs. That

I’ve decided to grow my blog a little and include some other features.  So the first to arrive is the ‘This vs. That’ page.  Here I will take two images in which I find similarities – be it in style, subject matter, or the name of the image.  Then I will analyze aspects of each image and conclude who I think is the winner.  As it will only be my opinion, I would love to hear what other people think too – so tell me did I pick the right winner, or am I completely off the mark?
