Lee Grant – Photography Blog

Blog-Monsta in a Blog-Ocracy

One of the things that I enjoy about blogging are the very democratic virtual encounters one has with people from – quite literally – all over the world. Our common point of interest is quite obviously, photography and the small email exchanges are a Nice biscuit moment at the end of a weary day.

Throughout my cyber-walkabouts I am still finding little gems which I often simply add to the Links section but sometimes, they deserve a better mention. Here are two fab finds from my latest expedition:

Aaron Ruell

Aaron Ruell, aka Kip in Napoleon Dynamite, is about to release a book called Some Photographs through Nazraeli Press. The interiors are beautifully nostalgic and despite the cinematic (as opposed to documentary) underpinnings, his portraits are like visual lollies. Kitsch rocks!

And ………… Henrik Duncker, a Finnish photographer who sums up his latest offering Relating Latvia here:

I love the forlorn suggestion of these images – there is a sweet melancholy in what Duncker has chosen to picture. His earnest exploration of a new culture brims with a longing to understand new familial relationships against the broader context of both history and place….. and what a poetic love letter it makes.
