Shadow Spotlight: Peter Lindbergh

9.16.19 Happy Monday! I’m not able to put into words about this creative artist. Peter Lindbergh was a different breed when it came to photography. He recently passed away earlier this month, leaving a legacy of great works. His photos showed natural beauty. He was not afraid to show the imperfections and flaws that most photographers covered up.  “This should be the responsibility of photographers today to free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection.” All of Lindbergh’s works were in black and white, refusing to work his photos in color which he felt covered the true beauty of the subject. As he explained to in an interview in 2008: “Using black-and-white photography was really important to creating the supermodel. Every time I tried to shoot them in colour because their beauty was close to perfection, it ended up looking like a bad cosmetics advert. With black and white, you can really see who they are. It toned down the commercial interpretation that colour gives. What’s so striking about black and …

Shadow Spotlight: Michael W. Thomas

2.18.19 Hey everyone! A new week has arrived and I have someone I like you to meet. His name is Micheal W. Thomas, a friend of the family and a really good photographer and February’s Shadow Spotlight. Here I’ve talked with Mr. Thomas about his love of photography… Can you recall a time when you first held a camera? As a youth probably my sister’s Brownie camera, my dad was reluctant to let me handle his. When did you know you wanted to be a photographer? I had an interest when I was young, my dad bought me a camera kit where I had to assemble a camera and maybe took a few shots with it. We were provided a camera in my Humanities course in High School for a project.

What do you want people to learn when …
