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!

creepy kids

Dina Lynnk is a Ukrainian fashion designer’s assistant who can’t sit still in her seat. As far as I can tell, in her series Creepy Kids, she did wardrobe, art direction, concepting, collage and post production. The net result is pretty damn close to the title. Kids looking creepy. Can’t take my eyes off it.

Akos Major

I think it was the deafening stillness of Akos’ work that grabbed me in this week of absolute chaos in the office. It’s not hard to lapse into a place of tranquility when staring into some of these incredibly framed images. And tranquility is what this dude needs. What’s also awesome, and somewhat unique I’ve found these days, is that some of his work is available for purchase as limited edition prints – ya just gotta ask him.

COPIA.

COPIA
Plenty, a plentiful supply

Brian Ulrich has spent ten years documenting the many layers of infinite commercialism to be found in our country. The series touches on the economic implications of over-consumption, highlights the particularities of not being able to consider anything due to too much being available and makes a full circle when some of the stores first visited end up dark and empty as the economy plummeted. Ulrich set this all up in three chapters—RETAIL, THRIFT, and DARK STORES.

An incredible insight. Spend some time looking and absorbing.

troy moth

God dang, Troy Moth makes some stark and jarring photos. It’s fitting that the titles of his projects sound more like black metal albums than photo projects (see: Darkness, The Welcoming, Norwegian Fjord Horse, etc.)

But I mean, read Troy’s bio and tell me if you’re surprised about the subject of his awesomely dark work:

Troy Moth was born in a remote tree-planting camp on the west coast of Canada and spent the first few years of life in a tent guarded by large dogs. He loved the wild and abundant nature he grew up immersed in, but eventually the call to adventure became too much and he moved, first across Canada to the big city (Toronto), then across the world to India, to pursue a career in photography.

Bjorn Arnason

Bjorn Arnason is a photographer based in Reykjavik, Iceland who has mastered the law of thirds. His work plays with space and balance in an interesting way. I appreciate how he takes large landmarks/objects and makes them feel small by focusing more on the atmosphere rather than centering the subject in the shot.

Check out more of his work here.
