Michael Schnabel Tastes Infinity

For a lot of artists, time and development only move in one direction but Michael Schnabel saw his latest shoot with Infiniti as a new opportunity to visit comfortable expertise. “When we saw the brief we thought it could bring something back from what I used to do and maybe be a little bit unique,” Michael says. “It worked out.” Over the course of five days they shot the entire fifteen-image campaign, touring California through San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Coming from California himself, Michael teamed up with a crew, agency, and producers that he’s worked with before so it was a team that he knew well and worked together with masterfully. Those relationships were crucial when it came to creating such a large swath of creative assets in such a short amount of time. It’s all about creating a visual and emotional balance, and sometimes to create


A Meditation in the Clouds with Benedict Redgrove

Clouds are moving mountains in the sky, ever changing off the backs of wind currents, cold fronts, and the rotation of the Earth. Our atmosphere gives space to clouds whose size would boggle the mind, but they are always shifting in a misty dance, never to take the same shape twice. Benedict Redgrove’s career takes him all over the world, and during some of his hundreds of journeys over the last five years he began photographing the clouds he saw while thundering through the sky in planes. He’s compiled these images together in his first solo show in the UK, “Everything & Nothing.” Benedict’s glimpses of these cloudscapes are impossible in their uniqueness. To draw a representation of them onto large format film is a blessing, something we get to share. Within the four sides of these images you can be sure, that even within their surreal nature, something like


Open Your World to Tim Georgeson

When Tim Georgeson creates a photograph he aims directly at the visceral. More than documenting a specific moment and communicating the facts on the ground, his imagery transcends factual review and comes closer to replicating an experience, a feeling, printed on paper and delivered to his audience. In a show that’s on view now at ÉCUME Gallery in Melbourne Australia, a series of numbered images that share the name “Mystique” are photographs of our world but they speak to a larger, emotional understanding. The themes converge in ‘Participation Mystique,’ a presentation of film and sound offered as a way to mine into the viewers subconscious and immerse themselves in Tim’s vision. “Georgeson is inspired by finding the truth in art,” ÉCUME curator Boe Sapun tells Bayside News. “He transports us to different lands, cultures, colours and people, while tapping into a universal feeling that is intrinsically familiar and raw.” Every


Sebastian Rich’s Deadly Ballet

The advance of digital media has offered us the ability to communicate with each other in real time, no matter where we are in the world. For most of us that means status updates, bringing each other into the minutia of each moment, but there’s the opportunity to extend beyond first world Sunday brunches. Sebastian Rich spends the great majority of his professional life chasing conflict all over the world. For 43 years he’s skipped from refugee camps to killing fields, bringing back with him images that not only give us a taste of what’s going on in these unimaginable conflicts, but gives us a reflection of the people who are living them. It’s one thing to see piles of rubble next to stacked bodies, but Sebastian also delivers images of hope: young girls laughing or a ballerina in arabesque. Sebastian has been working as a photojournalist since he was


Gallery Stock’s 25 American Photography Winners

Each year American Photography releases their compendium of images from the previous year that they found to be most arresting. For more specific than an accolade given to a photographer for a body of work, the jury examines every photograph that comes into consideration on the value of the image, regardless of who the photographer is. The competition is far steeper because each image has to earn distinction of its own merits, without any thought towards name recognition. We’re proud to share that this year 25 Gallery Stock photographers earned the distinction of being featured in AP32, with a mix of Chosen and Selected images. Each of these photographer’s work is a delight for us to interact with on a daily basis and we’re thrilled to share them with you. Please join us in congratulating Andy Goodwin, Andreanna Seymore, Adam Voorhes, Billy Delfs, Chris Sorensen, Gina LeVay, Greg Miller, Gregg


Peter Grundy Breeds Imagination with Information

Illustration is communication. Different styles help us understand messages and Peter Grundy’s style is perfectly suited for us to interpret complex systems in seamless ways. Peter considers himself an information illustrator, bringing complex columns of data to life inside of his creations. He’s been processing information this way for decades so it’s no surprise that he’s a master. Whether it’s with Google, Creative Review, Wired, or DHL, Peter brings it all to bear on each of his projects. Clean lines and gentle curves bring information to the forefront, distilling complexities to thoughtful concentration. He does this by considering information through his imagination. Often it’s the human touch that’s missing from reams of fact and figures, but as Peter explains he, “explains life imaginatively and individually for clients who seek invention and imagination.” Once dense statistical results are emancipated from the weight of data tables and let loose in the creative


Stephen Gill Redefines the Limits of Photography

When a photograph finds itself printed on paper it exists with limitations. The image is bound by the hard physical borders of the paper, and the surface makes it literally two dimensional. A photograph is a window, but like a window it only shows the image inside it. Photographer Stephen Gill rejects this traditional way of understanding how photographs interact with the real world and seeks to expand our understanding of what a photograph is and what it can say about what it documents. His career has broadened our understanding of the limits of photography by using three dimensional objects to interact with photographs and photograph them creating a traditional image of a nontraditional image. It is a stacking of representation that complicates representation. Starting with photographs primarily captured in Hackney, London, Stephen continues the creative process placing seeds, plants, water, and assorted detritus on top of the photographs and


Red Dot’s Latest Issue Features The Newcomers

Our latest issue of Red Dot Magazine is out and it’s a breath of fresh air. Not least of which because it features a dozen of our newest talent, and gives you an intimate look at who they are. Each of them sat down with our team to answer some of our most pressing and curious questions. In the pages of this issue you can find out what Laura Hennessy’s final meal on earth would be if she had the choice, why walking her dog is precious time for Dorit Thies, and why Nigel Riches doesn’t necessarily think working harder means working better. Behind every portfolio is a person whose view of the world is shaped by their experiences in it. That view forms the lens through which they capture the world. Normally we only get to see the results of that experience, but we thought it would be revealing

The Carefree World of Ashley Camper

A photograph is a still moment captured in time. The frame acts like amber, freezing time from edge to edge. Whether it packs as much energy as a firework, or matches the total immobility of a still life, it’s a mirror of that moment forever. Ashley Camper’s travel and lifestyle photography starts with the same premise, but somehow extends through time. Her images are warm and carefree, snagging moments that feel less like a frozen fraction of a second and more like a window into a still world. Each photograph seems as if it’s from the perfect vacation, a world of accessible timelessness where tranquility is both an indulgence and a right. Ashley allows her work to develop naturally, even describing it as “organic, fun and in the moment.” She names other photographers as some of her richer influences, including fellow Gallery Stock photographer Emily Nathan. She creates most of


Adam Voorhes Makes the Impossible Possible

Photography is often about tricking the eye. It’s a balance between composition and color. The advent of digital photography has made it possible to create images that were impossible for more than a century; they just require a little extra work on the computer. But when Adam Voorhes teams up with his wife Robin Finlay, they don’t like to fake anything. Their bold imagery is mostly done entirely “in camera,” meaning they create the images in the real world and snap a picture. There isn’t CGI in these photos. Their archive is almost entirely still life, preferring the challenge of creating the impossible. Whether it’s shattering lollipops or a map of the United States created out of raw fruits and vegetables, they love to make things that would otherwise be considered undoable. “We’re going to bring it to reality rather than it being illustrated or CG,” says Adam. “Reality in


Get Up and Go with Jacob Pritchard and Organic Fuel

Health is holistic. It’s not enough to work out or eat clean. It’s a lifestyle that encompasses food, activity, and mindset: all must be in balance. With the glut of nutritional supplements sometimes with the good comes the not so good: vitamins can be filled with unnatural fillers, athletic beverages drip with stabilizers and artificial sweeteners, and some performance enhancers are even worse. But not Organic Fuel. The milk protein recovery shake by Organic Valley extends the same brand values into a protein drink. Organic Valley asked Jacob Pritchard to collaborate on a series of images that would help them distribute their message of clean living, so Jacob strapped on his running shoes and got out into nature to explore. The shoot, commissioned for use on social channels, runs the gamut of an active lifestyle. From running, to biking, to basketball, and paddle boarding, these activities happen outside in the


Your Body Is for Whitney Hubbs

Whitney Hubbs tried taking a series of self-portraits, but she found it just wasn’t fun for her. She missed being behind the camera, she missed pressing the shutter button, but most of all she missed watching the photograph create itself in front of the lens. After all, a huge part of her process is witnessing the unraveling of moments and turning them into photographs. She couldn’t do that in front of the camera when she was the subject. So, she decided to take photographs of herself in a more figurative way. Her show that opened this month at M+B Gallery in Los Angeles, ‘Body Doubles,’ features female models stepping in for Whitney as a replacement of herself. “I wanted to use self-imposed parameters to see how one could make an interesting picture using repeated gestures just in the corner of a studio,” Whitney explains. “It was my intention for the
