Romka Magazine

I’ve written (gushed, maybe) about Romka magazine a few times in the past and it remains one of my favorite photography publications.

If you’re not familiar with Romka, here’s what you need to know: each issue asks 50-100 photographers to choose their favorite photos and write about them. What you end up with is a publication almost completely devoid of any pretense and let’s be honest, that’s pretty rare with these kinds of things. Some photos and their stories are funny, cryptic and personal or just fully heartbreaking. I’m always eager to land one of these in the mail.

You can pick up a copy at Romka’s website. More spreads below the jump!

Every Day for EIGHT YEARS

This video’s been around for a little while but its just too good not to post.  JK Keller executed a daily photo project (taking the same shot of himself every day) FOR EIGHT YEARS.  The project is called “The Adaptation to my Generation” and the results are pretty captivating.  Enjoy! 

Living My Life Faster – 8 years of JK’s Daily Photo Project from c71123 on Vimeo.

I’ve started a stopped this kind of project at least four times so…I’m going to go feel bad about myself for the rest of the day.

Tim Lytvinenko, the Longest post ever

This morning Woody turned me on to local Raleigh photographer Tim Lytvinenko, whose portfolio I am already (at 11) moderately obsessed with…

There really isn’t a whole lot of information on this gentleman in his bio or elsewhere on the web but take a few minutes perusing the galleries in his portfolio and you’ll get it.

In a world where 95% of the photo portfolio’s I come across online consist of staged hipster portraits with excessive lighting or gritty, “street”, documentary style photos (usually by suburbanites recently transplanted to their romanticized city of choice), Tim’s the natural.  He feels at rest around his subjects, lucid, and there’s a real ease that comes across in the work.  There isn’t much fat here; you get a story you can understand immediately via the capture of the exact, correct moment.

“…photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event, as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.” -Bresson

Take a moment to poke around Tim’s excellent (and funny) website, I would especially recommend checking out the “Jill Libby” gallery.

What do you all think of Tim’s work?  As excited as me?
