FXEGS Photography

Retrato de rapero
Presentation

FXEGS_galleryPhotographer sited in Madrid (Spain). I'm also philosopher and anthropologist. My primal interest is the human cultures, those customs and habits of the peoples in the world, with their resemblances and differences (and the understanding and disputes of them). But as well the Human Culture, the common features.

I work with several important imagery banks (stock agencies) and offer my services to do personal books or eventual assignments.

I'm experienced in postedition, but in order to achieve the highest quality I try to do my best in shooting, and to focus postedition on minor (but important) improvements.

I present here some samples from different models sessions. I can shoot model sessions at Madrid area or in other areas with charge.

Aleksandr Stikhin

Photography has been my passion for decades. It gives us reflection of the past. As soon as the shutter closes, capturing the moment, it becomes your voice, your unique point of view of reality. Of course, every person's view is different. Some simply collect events and objects, without even bothering with lighting; others mind the dynamic between light and shadow and make it a focal point. I am drawn to the latter approach.

In the era of technological advancement, it is rather humbling to look back and reflect on what being a photographer meant in the past. I still remember my first roll of film and the challenges I faced with it in a dark room. The horizon was not horizontal, all vertical lines were far from being vertical, people were walking on walls, water was running up. Now, with the help of computers, scanners and PS, Apertura, Capture, photography is a changed discipline. No more chemical smell, no more white spots, no more fiddling with fingerprints... Everything has gotten easier. And more complicated.

Nowadays everyone has access to a computer and, by changing various parameters, can turn any photograph into a work of Dali or Renoir. I refuse to partake of these techniques. I still want my horizon to be horizontal, vertical lines to be vertical, and water following the laws of gravity. Thus, in my work I only use basic functions and never resort to plugins and filters of any kind. White must stay white, and black must stay black. After all, it is the magic of real light, the beauty of natural colors and the balance of actual composition compel us to take a camera and make a shot.

about the picture: Moscow, 2011. This photograph is not cured. Therefore you will not see the golden domes of Kremlin, blue sky, and its blue-ish reflection in the Moscow River. Just the contours of Kremlin and the cathedral, the riverbank and an empty road along the Kremlin wall. I believe this is still the best photograph of Moscow I have ever made.

Working through my archives, I recently spent some time processing a handful of architectural photographs from a trip to San Francisco last year. These two photographs were shot on the same day, and depict different angles on the same windows and balconies of one landmark building downtown.

The first shot frames one edge of the angular building in the heavy concrete of a foreground structure. I chose to work in black and white for this view, as the elements of interest are in the modern layered angles, and in the balance of light and shadow as the afternoon sun settles across the city skyline.

The second photo intrigued me too, with looming rows of railings, the couple hidden in the shadows, and the layers of squared corners and circles at the top. The tone and texture of the warm, neutral building against the bright blue summer sky seems to add another layer of interest, as it is difficult to decide whether this architecture might be a modern experiment from years past, or some possibly futuristic urban structure.

Fine Art metal prints are available for both of these images, please follow the links or inquire directly.

Daniel Gafanhoto Photography

Wall of Houses

Daniel Gafanhoto

Pands-chines-150 Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I recently moved to the USA. I studied Social Sciences for 2 years, but realized that I always wanted to mix my interest of that with visual arts. While growing up I always showed a lot of interest and appreciation for art, but never found a way to express myself other than drawing, which I never really considered myself good at. Watching a close friend teach another some basic photographic knowledge made me think of photography as something interesting to study. It was a perfect combination of a way to express myself and work with art and sociology at the same time.

While lots of artists like to photograph people, my work was never focused on that. In the beginning of my career I used to do a lot of close up and abstract photographs. Even self-portraits were just abstract photographs with some depictions of loose, detached parts of my body. I've broadened my view to a much larger scale, photographing and processing cityscapes in a very personal way, to demonstrate the places I've lived and visit. I believe places can show a lot about people, sometimes even more than portraits. The way that cities influence people is more striking to me than individual characters alone.

Changing from film to digital gave me more control over the subjects of my photography. My photos were always representations of personal visions of my surroundings, but when done in film the results were experimental, more research. I chose the subject, but my final impression was something that I needed to wait and had less control over it. Moving to digital gave me more power to have the final result over the subject chosen, a very personal and accurate representation of my idea. My art comes after the capture it, is not the naked eye literal vision of the place, my memories and feelings towards the subject are expressed then by the post-process techniques applied.
My current subjects sometimes creates interest because they are already known though depict in a non obvious way. It's hard to believe that they will share the same feelings I did when the picture was made, but having additional emotions towards the images and understanding they are not just stills of subjects, that there is a deeper history behind each photograph is one of my main goals.
