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.”

Four photographs by Heather Barnes
“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!”

“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.
“When you’re on a commercial shoot, there’s a lot of down time between shots. To kill time on set, I’d usually borrow the wardrobe stylist’s Polaroid camera and shoot whatever struck my fancy. ”
Tripp’s worn a few hats in advertising as a producer, director and copywriter. He’s currently freelance producing, blogging at www.freshmenads.com and pursuing his true passion, photography.

Three photographs by Katie Sweeney. Part of ongoing series, Broken Umbrellas.
1. Handicapped 2. Hangnail 3) Emergency Landing
“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

“A favorite recent picture. It’s of a girl named Lucy, looking out the window of the Old Caln Meeting House built in the 1700s in rural Pennsylvania. Meeting House as in Quakers, Friends.”

“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.”

“Much of my work focuses on people and how they interact with their surroundings and the Museum series is an extension of that idea, which incorporates the wonder I experience every time I visit a museum.”

“Friend of mine, Scott Angle. He and I have played music together. I am always looking to shoot interesting things and I thought it would be interesting to shoot a “cowboy in the city” series. Lots of fun.”

“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.”

“Flying down south. No better skies to find big and juicy thunderstorms.”
“Among the collection of freaks, I love the girl to the far left, softly staring as if hypnotized by the guitar girl rocking out.”
“After Katrina- the girls expressions are perfect – from youngest to oldest – left to right – interested and smilingly curious. Seen this before. Get the fuck out, tourist…and help us.”
“I used to play in a band in NYC. This was the light that lit my drum kit. And me. Great complimenting colors here.”
Originally from Atlanta, Chad worked at Margeotes Fertittas & Partners in New York before coming to Euro RSCG, Chicago, where he is an art director.
“I shot this through glass while taking an elevator to my hotel room. You can see the world’s tallest building under construction. I love the muted blue color and hazy atmosphere. It’s almost like a painting.” -SRP
