A forthcoming documentary film ‘Everyday Street’ directed by Cheryl Dun tells the stories of legendary street photographers such as Ricky Powell, Martha Cooper, Jamel Shabazz, and Jamel Freedman who captured everyday life throughout their careers. Now that street photography has become popularized through the evolution of streetstyle (The Sartorialist et al) it’s refreshing to see a documentary that highlights the grime, grafitti and  slices of life of a bygone era. ‘Everyday Street’ will premier at Canada’s Hot Docs International Film Festival.

Last night was the opening reception for photographer Jonathan Mannion’s exhibition at Milk Studios ‘Rough around the Edges’. The photos from the show were all shot on the now discontinued Poloroid 665 Film and Poloroid 195 land camera. Printing with the Polaroid 665 film includes the a negative which gives off the the appearances of “rough edges” on each shot. This was aesthetic that Jonathan loved and the collection of street photography and portraits of some of the biggest names in hip-hop of the last twenty years.

RROUGH AROUND THE EDGES: the 665 Polaroid Work of Jonathan Mannion runs at Milk Studios Gallery through to July 7th.

Ten years before Yeezus, the self-appointed Louis Vuitton Don was photographed for the cover of The Fader’s Inaugural ‘Now’ issue. These previously unreleased photos are outtakes from that shoot with Hip-hop photographer Jonathan Mannion (who famously photographed Jay-Z’s cover for Reasonable Doubt). Jonathan reflects on the experience of meeting and photographing Yeezy that day:

“At that point Kanye was already building his legacy. Already at that point all eyes were on him. Cause even before dropping that first album, he’d claimed it, he wasn’t accepting no for an answer. I think The FADER showed a lot of foresight by saying, Okay, you’re our guy, you’re on the cover, let’s go.

Kanye styled himself that day, there wasn’t a stylist. I remember he wanted props, things that represented his style. A Louis Vuitton bag showed up and he told a story, “I tried to get a bunch of Louis stuff and they wouldn’t send it to me, so I just bought it.” Whether it was that bag he bought or a big clump of Louis Vuitton luggage he wanted to stand on, he wanted it to be LV to show what he appreciated. I remember his “If I want it, I’m just gonna get it” attitude. The brick phone he’s holding in some of these dates the photos, but there’s nothing else about these to make them seem like they weren’t taken yesterday. I’m sure that phone, at that time, was the freshest, greatest, nobody had it. It was always about being ahead of the competition. His style then was impeccable and there’s nothing about it that wouldn’t apply today.”

New Yorkers can check out an exhibition of Mannion’s poloroid work entitled ‘Rough around the Edges’ at Milk Studios from Jun 18th to July 7th. The opening reception is tomorrow from 7PM-10PM.

Every  now and then I stumble upon something I haven’t seen before that visually captivities me. When I first saw the photos of Richard Mosse, I was drawn in and had to find more of his work.  The irish artist and photographer has captured beautiful photojournalistic photos of people and landscapes in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. He achieves the look of these photos by using a discontinued film stock  Aerochrome. The Kodak film was invented during the Cold War in conjunction with the US military in order to see enemy activity from the air and it’s this process which gives these photos a dreamy ‘Dr.Seuss’ feel.

These photos are from the critically acclaimed photographic series “Infra,” shot in the DRC. He recently embarked on a new project which is entitled  “The Enclave,”  it’s a multimedia installation that opened last weekend at the Irish Pavilion of the Venice Biennale in Italy.  It will run at the Fondaco Marcello in Venice until November 24.

The questions every photographer gets asked are “What camera do you use?” or “What camera is the best to buy?”

There’s no such thing as a perfect camera, but it is fun to explore the different results varied cameras , lenses, filters and film can give. Experienced photographers select the tools best suited for the job that they are most comfortable with.  This will be an on-going feature where I profile photographers on the cameras they like to shoot on.

To launch this series I spoke with Ryan of Fortune and Fear about his camera collection and his favorite things to shoot on.
