Today’s Gods of Advertising post spurred me to send a photo from a series I had been doing of Johnstown, PA — formerly home to our office and best known for floods, John Murtha and the movie, “Slap Shot.”
.
The photo attached, taken this past May, is of the rear of famed local hot dog shop Coney Island Lunch with the Cathedral of St John Gualbert looking on. There’s always some movement or other to re-brand Johnstown (most recently as the “iCity” to attract tech companies) but at its heart, it’s a funky old blue collar, frankly backward and corrupt, town. I’ve been sporadically posting other photos from the project on my Amnesty Bin site: AmnestyBin.com

Three photographs By Brian Brooker:


I snapped the leaf on the sidewalk, just steps from the entrance to KCI. The fact that it is shaped just like a kite, while fascinating, is insignificant.  What is important is that I noticed it.

Obviously, the other two photos are airport/travel related. For more images or for Brian’s comments on these visit his blog, http://linttray.com/

Brian’s last gig was CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Barkley Evergreen in Kansas City. He is willing to do advertising freelance, if you ask nicely.

“Here are a few shots I took this past winter as research for an assignment on horses. Wonderful being around these animals. My mother raises horses, but being in Chicago I don’t get to see them or ride them much any more. But there is something magical about the bond people have with their horses.”

“I had the opportunity to travel to Buenos Aires for work. I found that everywhere I turned, there was something amazing. It’s sort of an art director’s paradise down there. Not to mention it’s fun to design something in your lens knowing you’ll never have to put a logo or copy on it. It’s art in the buff, and it’s all yours! Most of these were shot after the rain, when the colors were more saturated.”

“We were flying to a presentation in NY when storms forced us to land in DC. The only way to make sure we made it to NYC on time was to take the train. It was great. I stared out the window 95 percent of the time. The first thing that struck me was the level of existence right next to one of the busiest train routes in the world. The other thing was the weather that re-routed us, which created an ominous cast making the mood of the towns even bleaker -in New Jersey, from Trenton to New Brunswick and along the Hackensack River.”

“Europe a couple summers ago.  In reviewing my album from the trip, I realized that I accidentally on purpose focused on structural elements in the foreground in a lot of my pictures.  The dragon is my favorite shot, which was taken while moving from on top of a double decker bus in London!”

Three photographs of Mount Hood (from ongoing series) by Jamie Chabot

“Working as an art director on the 19th floor of a downtown Portland high-rise has its perks. My butt-kicking view of Mount Hood is one of those. I originally started documenting the mountain by taking one photograph at the same time every day – for an entire year. Then I decided to capture only the best days. I guess being picky comes with the job title. So I put the series of my best shots online recently and I update the site as I get new shots, I have them going back to 2007 and it will continue as long as I have a job. I hope you enjoy this unique collection of my most spectacular shots. Here is a link if you’d like to check out the whole collection:” 19thandhood link

Three photographs by Doug Lowell, from series, The Nature of the Word

“I started shooting at night on my walk home from the bus stop. The idea of the photographs, or at least how I look at them, is the way in which trees reflect the nature of words. The way a word can be sometimes startlingly clear, other times clouded and uncertain. The way it branches in its references and potential meanings. The way it lives in the dark.”

Polaroids by Mark Tripp.

“I spotted my first broken umbrella years ago while walking through Manhattan, and the writer in me immediately started thinking about the former owner – and what kind of state they were in to just give up on their nonfunctioning umbrella immediately without waiting to reach a trash can. I kept thinking about the umbrella; then I started seeing more of them. I started taking pictures of them; then I started a blog. And now lots of people send me their own pictures of broken umbrellas. broken umbrellas website

“This is a series of images that I took on my new iPhone 3Gs while traveling. The Madison Hotel in Morristown, New Jersey had different wallpaper patterns in each meeting room. Funny. This particular gold color set behind gold lamps was my favorite. I like the photos of the lamps with the lights on because it breaks a rule: never shoot directly at a bright object like a light or the sun. Why not?”

“Humility is a virtue I have experienced this year like no other. Humility is something we first experience in school at a reading, recess, critique, gym class, film screening, etc. But that humility seems like a different species from the kind experienced waiting in line to apply for food stamps, facing eviction, or when you find yourself getting by with a little help from your friends every time someone has a birthday. I have found this experience to strengthen my voice, ideas, passion, and morals. The friends who have helped me through have served as family in this city far from home. Our bonds have exceeded trite gatherings to avoid loneliness or boredom. Our concept of value has evolved far beyond monetary ends and offerings. We support one another in success and in failure. In doing so, we discover a grander since of morality, and what it takes to better ourselves. I understand your Rogue Gallery to be a leading example of such cause. A safe place  for your friends and colleagues to express themselves for the sake of expression. That said, I am honored to submit my most recent personal series, “Stay-cation Loathing.”

Chris is a freelance photographer and collaborative artist.

Animal Carcass by Mark Gilmore

Animal Carcass by Mark Gilmore

“I stumbled upon this deer carcass while stopped on the side of a country road at a photo shoot. The head was missing and the body was dragged far into the weeds, so I didn’t see it until I almost stepped on it. It made me think of how a person must have considered this animal to be so disposable; to poach the head and antlers, yet leave the body on the side of the road. I processed the image with an 1800’s era death portrait in mind, an image that was traditionally used to cherish lost loved ones.”

Mark Gilmore is an advertising photographer and art student based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

But for now, here are the three photos Steffan put on his site. But I encourage you to go see more of the work he’s assembled on The Rogue’s Gallery. […]
