I’ve missed my camera more and more over the past several months. In the midst of school, work, ongoing projects and making time to feel socially relieved, I tend to forget that it’s there for me, waiting to be utilized. To jumpstart this shutter bug I’ll post about some experimental photographers every so often. Maybe this occasional curation will catalyze my own. Maybe it’ll remind me that small moments, even those locked in a library, can unveil an unlikely point. Regardless of what happens, it’s still content worth recording– Enjoy the view.
“I felt that photography was an adventure the same as life itself and there are much more stories behind each photograph. Hopefully, these photographs will lead to a beginning of a story however funny, sad, long, short and challenging it will be.” – Nguyens
Nam Nguyens is a New York photographer with under 200 “likes” on Facebook. I ran into a few of his pieces on Designspiration, struck by his deep saturation and clever use of textures, from petals to bed sheets. A few clicks through his Flikr proved even more interesting, as each series displayed a different skill and style than the last.
Here’s a brilliant example of range if I’ve ever seen any:
