  5. 5. Sally Mann http://www.aperture.org/shop/ books/immediate-family-2592 "Mann's subjects are her small children (a boy, a girl, and a new baby), often shot when they're sick or hurt or just naked. Nosebleeds, cuts, hives, chicken pox, swollen eyes, vomiting the usual trials of childhood can be alarmingly beautiful, thrillingly sensual moments in Mann's portrait album. Her ambivalence about motherhoodher delight and despairpushes Mann to delve deeper into the steaming mess of family life than most of us are willing to go. What she comes up with is astonishing." Vince Aletti, The Village Voice

  16. 16. Jaskirt DhaliwalEveryday Olympian The Everyday Olympian documents people involved in local community sports, be it a 12 year old swimmer, 60 year old hockey player or 30 year old amateur boxer. These are the people that make up the tapestry of sports that thrive at grass roots level across the region. They may not be an Olympian, however it is through their commitment and participation on a weekly or daily basis that so many sports still function and exist. Shot on medium format, all the participants were photographed after taking part in competition or training. Everyday Olympian was the winner of Magnum Showcase Sports with Ideas Tap 2012, selected for Foto8 Summershow 2012 and also featured in The Sunday Times magazine. This body of work has been supported by Kalaboration, Arts Council England and the Cultural Olympiad.

  18. 18. Diane Arbus March 14, 1923 July 26, 1971, An American photographer and writer noted for black and white square photographs of "deviant and marginal people or of people whose normality seems ugly or surreal. Diane believed that a camera could be a little bit cold, a little bit harsh but its scrutiny revealed the truth; the difference between what people wanted others to see and what they really did see the flaws. A friend said that Arbus said that she was afraid that she would be known simply as 'the photographer of freaks'"; however, that phrase has been used repeatedly to describe her.
  19. 19. Timothy Archibald sometimes I wonder photography was a way of connecting with his autistic son, Eli. Archibald says, People jump to all sorts of desperate measures to feel like theyre doing something a diet, a new medication, a special doctorand this helped me feel like I was doing something.We got to work as equals on something.
  20. 20. Evi NumanMy work consists of portraits of people with medical disorders that are invisible to the casual observer. I try to photograph the intangible beauty that comes from the mental and physical suffering that often plagues the human condition, but is rarely explored in an honest manner. Im interested in the painful and exhilarating experiences that colour their lives of those suffering from mental and neurological illness and I attempt to reveal them on the faces of my subjects. Using the face as a map of psychological experience, I try to unveil the telltale subtleties apparent in each individuals physiognomy.http://evinumen.com/section/67902_Portraits.html
  21. 21. Over the course of a year, I photographed individuals who described themselves as being gravely affected by their psychological and/or physiological illness, responding to a relevant ad I placed. Each sitter is positioned against a dark background with no visible signs of clothing, makeup or jewelry. Each person is stripped bare so that nothing distracts from their often piercing gaze.
  22. 22. Skin Portraits by Adrienne M. Norman In 2000 writer and philosopher Drs. Tanny Dobbelaar and I worked on a series of portraits and interviews with people who have a chronic skin disorder. Our two year collaboration resulted in a Dutch language book entitled 'Heftig Vel'.

  29. 29. Sebastiao Salgado A photojournalist in the best sense of the word, Sebasiao Salgado is fascinated with people who work hard in all parts of the world. From landless workers trying to claim property for themselves in Brazil to Oil workers putting out fires in Kuwait, Salgado's lens captures the beauty in his subjects' gritty reality. Look at his work: Workers and Genesis (below)

  32. 32. Jaskirt DhaliwalBritish Asian MusiciansThe cultural and historical importance of these musicians is immense, they represent, reflect and connect with todays second and third generation of British Asians and despite differing styles of music or the message they project, all have commonalities; South Asian roots and a place in British Asian culture.All of the artists who feature in British AsianMusicians were photographed in a place of importance to them, places where they have drawn some of their musical inspiration, whether this is Soho Road, The Tate Modern, old school parks or garden sheds.
  33. 33. Femmes Algriennes 1960 by Marc Garanger One by one, villagers, predominantly women, were forced to pose for Garanger, whose task was to produce the images needed for new mandatory ID cards. Less than a year later, Garanger's images of shamed and angry Algerian women would become a symbol of French oppression over its Northern African colony."

  37. 37. Rodeo girls by Ilona Szwarc Rodeo Girls is an ongoing portrait project about young girls from Texas who compete in rodeos. These individuals have a fundamentally different idea about their femininity and a contrasting attitude towards gender roles. They are engaged in activities that traditionally were reserved for men; they possess great physical strength and demonstrate their dominance over animals. I am interested in the limitation these girls face in expressing their femininity and the transference of it onto animals.

  40. 40. Jaskirt DhaliwalWomen's Football The idea that some of the nations best female footballers could pass you on the street and you would not know them is a telling fact in a world where male footballers are ranked as celebrities. Female football players have little or no recognition, but with the new Super League launched in 2011 and Olympics in 2012 is that about to change? These women look like your best friend, your average student, the woman you sit next to on the bus and they have no airs and graces about them, yet they are all of these things and also Englands best footballers on the weekends. Karen Carney maybe a year younger than Wayne Rooney, Sue Smith may have been voted best footballer in the world, however do they get the recognition their talent truly deserves?This PIC (Photo Imaging Council) award winning body of work explores the recognition and exposure that the women's largest participated UK sport receives and also the identity of it's players.
  41. 41. 100 leading ladies by Nancy Honey In todays Britain, women in senior management or influential positions over the age of 55 years are invisible. Statistics highlight how few women are in positions of power, from Parliament to the boardroom. Yet the few who do break through this glass ceiling remain largely uncelebrated and unheard of. Celebrities like Judy Dench are well known, but who has heard of Averil Mansfield, the UKs first female professor of surgery, Pauline Clare, the first British woman to become a Chief Constable or Joy Larkcom, the British woman whose studies and adventures brought rocket and pak choi into this country and onto our dinner plates? Who are these unseen leading ladies?
