Up close and personal. Wonderful textures coupled with a great story.

Impressive mastery of reflections and shadows, I particularly enjoy the angry-sad face of the man in the first shot, it plays along very well with the dramatic sky and the harsh contrast.

Very subtle yet everything holds the eye on the subject. Lovely lighting and composition.

Looks like this scene came from a 90’s (or even 60’s) sci-fi movie. Balanced, lovely texture, the formation of smog/fog, interesting angle. Shot by Tim Burton? No, it’s Marco Harder.

Impressive street photography, a crisp silhouette of a (happy?) man with a screaming yellow background, almost fluorescent. The gait is curious, at least for me, seems like the subject is a bit hunched, or maybe tired, but surely has a distinctive shape, is he eating something?

The reds in this image are superb, the sneakers shine with a light of their own, playing a nice game with red line painted on the sidewalk.

Impressive capture, to be framed and hanged.

Lovely black and white from my new favorite blog. Film grain, that lovely blur, this photo is charming in so many ways.

This is sublime — the deliberate pose of the guy, the apparently candid action of the girl…I love this image unreservedly.

Sureal is the word that comes to my mind when I look at this picture. The perspective and composition are well balanced. Plus, the alignment of the foreground character and the background structure is just superb !

John Gordon’s images consistently portray a quiet and contemplative view that is both eloquent and elegant. In a time when the “grab-shot aesthetic” is so prevalent, It’s refreshing to see a young photographer so maturely rooted. -John King

This photo is a lovely landscape shot; the sharp trees in the foreground, multicolored trees in the back, smudged by fog into an arboreal rainbow. A beam of light streams from the center of the image, and a single house sits quietly in the midst of it all.

I was on my home from a photographic exhibition about distortion in photography. The light was lovely and I made some architectural studies of Adelaide’s modernist architecture.

I’d like to preface this commentary with the fact that I have a pretty strong dislike for flash photography. Done right, it can work, no doubt about that. For the most part, things get washed out, there are glares to deal with - it is not aesthetically pleasing to me.

Atisha Paulson consistently uses flash photography in a way that I find pleasing. Since the man in the hat is in the center of the photo, I’m assuming that he was the focus, the main subject for this shot. My eye, however, is drawn to the woman on the left with her head tilted to the side and a cigarette dangling from her lips as she casually flips her hair over her shoulder. It’s the little things that make a photograph work and the crowd behind him, particularly that woman, completely work for me.

This, for me, is a reminder of the power of photography; the ability to offer others a moment through your eyes. The honesty of this image allows appreciation of the detail in light and shadow without any pretense, while curiosity ultimately leads through the window - the darkness, and what we can’t see; imagination takes over.
