Work flow is of the utmost importance….watch and learn.
I received my new copy of Aperture today and was struck by a series of photographs the presented from Rob Hornstra. The series precipitated from a an article the Dutch photographer read about Russia’s super rich. Horstra traveled to the peripheral towns untouched by such proseperity and explored the limited choices most people in Russia are facing. His rich work captures tensions between past and present amongst a crumbling nationalist landscape.
The is nothing more practical for learning than to be surrounded by mentors and get your feet wet. Scott Bourne is leading the charge. Check his G9 videos on his site.
