Nicola Lorusso. Interiors and details

The architecture photographer Nicola Lorusso sees photography as a useful expressive medium for getting across emotions and turning images into explorations of the space. Nicola Lorusso graduated in architecture from the Polytechnic in Turin and he began his foray into photography during his time there, finding it a great medium for expressing his emotions. After he graduated he decided to take his passion further and completed a photography course at the IED in Milan. Here, Lorusso is sharing with us two projects of interior design, a category of architecture photography that needs a tip-toe approach, because it takes you into the sphere of personal spaces. Indeed, these kinds of photos are only shot when the project is finished, when the location is already furnished or even being used. All with the purpose of giving a detailed narrative of the architecture, following the words of Charles Eames: “The Details are not the details. They make the design”. Interior design photography is not easy but it is the field where Nicola Lorusso's expressive power comes to the fore. He skilfully finds his way around a context where there is very little room to move, both physically - being indoors - and in the framework of interpretation. Yet he still manages to show his visual ability and his creativity in addition to an empathetic feel for the space, and for the clients who have already invested their emotions in the home and want to see those emotions reflected in the image. When you look at Nicola Lorusso's photos you are struck by their hyper-realistic appearance, composed of bold lines, clear edges and crisp colours - making them look almost like renderings. In that case, it could be seen as a contradiction in terms, considering the conflictual relationship between images shot with a camera and images created on the computer. Still, for this photographer that's not a problem, on the contrary, it is to all intents and purposes his great expressive power because he simultaneously proposes a set of spatial and imaginary experiences. So, on the one hand, his shots communicate the project to the viewer and on the other, they give the client important feedback.  We might conclude that he creates a visual narrative that enables the viewer to comprehend the space, the lights, the furniture, the atmosphere and the material surfaces. And at the same time, his clients find their design concept validated in his pictures. Put another way, some of us seek beauty, some of us create it...and then there are the ones, like Nicola Lorusso who communicate its details. @chrisbuerklein Nicola Lorusso http://www.lorussonicola.com/

Chris Johnson. London from a helicopter

Chris Johnson. London from a helicopter

UK-based professional photographer, Chris Johnson shares his aerial shots of London taken from a helicopter, giving us a unique view of the new, iconic buildings in the UK capital. Chris Johnson is a full-time professional photographer based in Hastings, East Sussex. His passion and enthusiasm for photography started at an early age, with both his father and grandfather being photographers. Growing up with constant access to cameras helped fuel his interest in this visual art. Chris Johnson's experience of the change from analogue photography to digital photography was positive because he focuses on the technological aspect in order to capture the moments that matter, particularly important in his sector - photojournalism - where even a millisecond can make the difference in the visual narrative. He arrived at aerial photography through The London Helicopter, a company offering flights to see London from above, grabbing an overall view of the urban fabric with unexpected gems like green roofs and architectural solutions that aren't visible from a conventional perspective. A great advantage due to the choice of subjects, as we can see here in the pictures of the new buildings constructed recently along the Thames but not without its pitfalls. Because, unlike architecture photography using a tripod and the large format that some photographers adopt, taking photos from a hovering helicopter is completely different - it moves, it jerks, you need to have a firm hand and be quick, not dissimilar to taking shots of moving people. Perhaps these similarities are why Chris Johnson gets such a buzz out of aerial photography the way he sees it because there is no clear difference between the iconic architecture and the rock stars and sportspeople he normally photographs. Not only that but the aerial perspective becomes innovative and unique in a world where social media is jam-packed with the same shots of the same buildings taken from the same angles, particularly in a tourist hotspot like London. Of course, we asked him what he thought about using drones for aerial pictures. Chris Johnson actually owns a drone, which he bought after experiencing the views from a helicopter but he sees them as two completely different worlds. He considers himself a purist and he likes to capture photos with minimal editing; with drones, he doesn't have the same immediate control and quality of his camera. These details make all the difference - when Johnson flies over London in a helicopter he is always behind the camera and he can adjust zooms, angles and settings to give optimal quality and that personal touch, which would otherwise be lost in the “boilerplate concept” dictated by the inevitable orthogonal setting of the drone. @chrisbuerklein Chris Johnson http://www.chrisjphotography.biz/

Antonella Bozzini. Still Life.

Antonella Bozzini. Still Life.

Antonella Bozzini is a professional Italian photographer who specialises in still lifes. She crafts a collection of creative snapshots by applying her technique to objects and spaces both small and large, including architecture and interior design. The Italian photographer Antonella Bozzini graduated in photography from the European design institute (Istituto Europeo del Design - IED) in Milan and her dream was to follow in the footsteps of the great Robert Capa and become a photojournalist. But as John Lennon said, “life is what happens when you're busy making other plans” and in the '90s Antonella began working with Maurizio Rebuzzini as a still life photographer for the FotoGraphia magazine, until she opened her own photography studio. This formative background influences her approach to photography, regardless of the scale of the subject being portrayed because many of her images look more like paintings than photographs, which is a hallmark of still life photography.  The still life photography genre is used to represent inanimate subjects, most often small groups of objects. Its origins date back to the 17th-century tradition of Netherlandish art. In painting, "Vanitas" is another technical name to describe the still life genre. The word Vanitas is a more appropriate description of the philosophical nature of these deceptively simple images of compositions of objects from everyday life, as conceptual representations of the nature of time. Vanitas mainly refers to the transience of life, which Antonella Bozzini encapsulates in a snapshot that does more than just tell the story of the details to describe the specific mood of that moment in time in the photo. The fixed, immediate and instantaneous image that remains frozen therefore gives tangible proof that time is a collection of moments. This reflection is also inherent in food photography - that Antonella Bozzini discussed in her interview in the “Dress the kitchen” section of Floornature - where the photographer is forced to address the perishability of cooked food. A curious, bubbly person like her will, of course, never stop at just snapping shots of tasty culinary creations, so she also focuses on the world of interior design where she has found fertile ground for her visual narrative. Antonella Bozzini always starts from a clearly defined project concept because she wants to capture both the atmosphere of the location and the details of the interior design and finishes. This is precisely where Antonella Bozzini can really express her creative flair: her shots remind us of the small pleasures of life, like the delight of a tasty dish or the harmony of a space to spend your time in. These elements all risk being lost in our overly busy world where there is no room for wonder, or even for pondering on our fragile and beautiful existence, which is revealed to us through the attentive eye of this photographer. @chrisbuerklein Antonella Bozzini https://www.antonellabozzini.com/ Facebook Instagram
