“Home” Project by FUJIFILM and Magnum Photos

I love everything about this project. And, don’t missed out the featured videos of each photographer, describing their perspectives about “home”. This one by Jonas Bendiksen is my fave.


FUJIFILM & Magnum Photos Collaborative Project “HOME”. An exhibition of the work will tour to seven cities around the world starting in March 2018, and be accompanied by a photobook.

16 Magnum Photographers will explore the theme of “HOME” for the project. Known for their wide range of approaches, Magnum Photos members produce documentary photography that encompasses art and photojournalism. Sharing the agency’s legacy for humanistic photography, associated with its founding in 1947, Magnum’s contemporary practitioners are united by a curiosity about the world. This project invites them to explore a universal subject familiar to us all.

“Home” is not only defined as a space for physical living. It holds various other associations that are emotional, biological, cultural and societal. These 16 photographers have been given an open brief to explore the subject through their own individual practices, the resulting work reflecting their personal take on a subject that we all record photographically.

Nasihat dari Director of Photography majalah Sports Illustrated kepada fotografer

Mendapatkan nasihat atau masukan, insight, dari seseorang yang memiliki kredibilitas memang selalu menyenangkan. Kerap kali, nasihat mereka sederhana, tetapi luput dari perhatian kita, atau kita lupakan karena terlalu sibuk mengurusi hal-hal yang sebenarnya tidak esensial. Termasuk dalam urusan fotografi.

Awal tahun ini, A. A. Productions, sebuah rumah produksi fotografi melakukan wawancara eksklusif dengan Brad Smithdirector of photography majalah olahraga top, Sports Illustrated. Tema besar wawancara singkat tersebut adalah, apa yang dicari seorang editor (majalah)—dalam hal ini Sports Illustrated—dari seorang fotografer yang hendak mengajukan portofolionya untuk dimuat majalah tersebut.
