PHOTOGRAPH, Issue 11

PQ11-Cover

When I met Ken and Michelle Dyball, who created a stunning featured portfolio in the latest issue of PHOTOGRAPH magazine, they were managing a small safari lodge on the Maasai Mara in Kenya. Before we got there we stopped at a hippo kill, to watch the lions eat the massive body. Across from us, a kitted-out Land Cruiser from which some some very long Nikon lenses were emerging. Michelle was taking one shift, photographing a several-day time lapse of the carcass and its return to the earth, while Ken waited for us at the camp. Over the coming days we began to appreciate our hosts for their sense of adventure and love of the wildlife they were surrounded with. When I saw their work I knew we had to feature it in the magazine. There’s something emotional about their work, something more than what wildlife photography is so often reduced to: mere illustration.

Ken & Michelle’s work is joined by the colourful work of Valda Bailey in her Bus No.8 series, the dramatic high energy Dust & Dance series from Thomas David, and the black and white infrared, America in the Best Possible Light series from Russell Grace. Our usual contributors are all there with some great writing and beautiful images, including Bruce Percy’s Natural Light column which particularly resonated with me. Really great stuff. I’ve included a quick look at a few of the pages, but you can see more on the C&V product page.

Hokkaido Boat Abstracts

Halfway through this last trip to Hokkaido my brain needed a break from all the white, elegant, graphic stuff. Beautiful, to be sure, but I needed something tangental, something different. In part, I think, I wanted something manmade, probably longed for some colour as well. What I found in the old boat yards, the boats […]

Back from Hokkaido

I got in from Japan yesterday and dove headlong into the blur of jetlag. By now I’m pretty good at the auto-pilot chores and the mindless digging out from the pile of things accumulated in my absence. It’s not just jetlag that makes it hard, but the more whole-body confusion that results from longing to […]
