Gelatin Silver Print by Amanda Means
Gelatin Silver Print by Amanda Means

Amanda Means is a professional photographer from Beacon, NY.  Her fine art photography is widely exhibited and collected.  This particular collection of Gelatin Silver prints utilizes a unique technique.  Amanda Means gives the following description in Parabola magazine: (Link Updated 2/2016)

I do not photograph these forms with a camera. They are made by the plant form being placed in the head of an enlarger, on a piece of glass. Light passes through both the vegetation and the lens to the surface below. This is a different kind of light than the reflected light used by cameras containing film. The light of my photographs seems to emanate from the image itself, in much the same way as the light which comes from within the accumulations of paint in a painting.

The Magnificence of Isabel Muñoz’s Photography

For over 30 years Isabel Munoz has been capturing the world on film.  She still develops her own film, and this devotion to her craft shows in her pictures.  Her work is fiercely focused, and she is able to capture such energy in a still picture.  She began training to be a dancer before finding photography, and many of her photos capture dancing.   In an interview she explains:

Dance has always been my biggest passion, so photographing it feels very natural to me. A moving body is magical, but dance is so much more than just movement or show business, it is a way of life. Dancers have a particular perception of their own anatomy and they tend to express their feelings very strongly through body language. In that sense they are emotionally very generous whenever they pose for me; so capturing love, dignity or sensuality comes surprisingly easily through dance. VIA

You can find Isabel Munoz’s work scattered across the internet.  A more complete portfolio of her work can be found on her website.
