Portrait Jeanluc Mege-7573As a fervent follower of Philippe Antoine de Saint-Exupery philosophy “the Heart in your Eyes”, and with an intense human sensitivity, Jean-Luc Mege captures more than just photographs. Jean-Luc Mege began his career as a professional photographer in 1989. He lives part-time in Lyon (France) and in Brooklyn where his photo studio is located.

In 1991, Figaro Magazine hired him – this turned out to be a position with the best photography school for this enthusiast self-taught photojournalist. During the 24 following years, Jean-Luc has covered thousands of magazine stories across France and across the World, in a very wide range of fields, such as grand reportage, life style, fashion, gastronomy, landscape, people, business portraits and art. Simultaneously, he has developed an independent activity of advertising photographer. His portfolio includes more than 120 magazine covers.

But what really shaped his work was the energy he spent during his free time on the grounds of war in the service of a humanitarian organization. The photographs he took in Lebanon, Bosnia, Iraq, India, Romania, Sir Lanka and Columbia (Where he escaped death) are indicative of the strength of images where brought to a cause.

Jean-Luc Mege covers, illustrate and immortalizes scenes from around the world. He has a rare ability to tell a story through his photographs. The force of the narrative comes from a unique path: Jean-Luc’s eye is imbued with great empathy, an unprecedented tenderness and an innate sense of composition.

In 2006, while working for many people and business magazines, he became the Official Photographer of the Insitut Lumiere, and worked under the direction of Thierry Fremaux (Chairman of the Cannes Film Festival). The assignment allowed him to meet and take portraits of the most famous Cinema Directors. Clint Eastwood, David Lynch, Gerard Depardieu, Keanu Reeves, Roman Polanski, Quentin Tarantino, Milos Forman passed and continue to pass in front of his lens.

Nonetheless, even if he has photographed the most famous people, Jean-Luc has never forgotten the most humble ones. In 2007, he moved to share the life of “the poorest of the poor” as a volunteer in the Dying Homes of Mother Teresa – Kolkata… and experience that changed his life forever.

Then in 2009, while sent to New York for a magazine to make a long article series, he met his future wife and decided to change his life… Totally in love with the city and its energies, he reinvents his creative approach and tends increasingly to a more artistic work. Today, Jean-Luc still divides his time between New York & Lyon, where his two children are living. His international works have repeatedly been selected as examples in press articles and exhibitions.

Discreet, delicate, perfectionist and intense are adjectives that can apply both to Jean-Luc the photographer and to his photographs. When Jean-Luc takes his camera, it is to tell you a story… or to bring you in his particular universe.

Bella Kotak is a fine art, fashion, and conceptual artist based in England. Her work celebrates the ethereal state of nature coupled with the femininity, beauty, and strength of women. Bella’s creations are like stepping into a story, fairytale-like land where magic is found in the most ordinary of locations. A place where free spirited, independent, beautiful, strong-hearted characters come to life. Her work has been featured in magazines and newspapers around the world.

 

 

Bella’s main inspiration comes from, nature, flowers, the beauty and colors of ever-changing seasons, beautiful muses, pre Raphaelite paintings, Greek nymphs and their stories, royalty in fairytales and ideas of character’s journey in a darker nature driven world.

“I’ve been taking pictures since the day I discovered my Dad’s camera and claimed it as my own. I began teaching myself Photoshop in 2007 and it wasn’t long before I began to combine the two interests realizing that together they created an amazing and limitless way to tell stories.

Growing up in sun kissed Kenya I was surrounded by color and wild untamed natural life. Since moving to England I now appreciate and long for the beauty of natural bold colors and warm tones.

An aim I gave myself as a teen was to try to travel to a new place every year and so far a few of the places I’ve visited are Japan, Vietnam, Bali, Europe, Morroco, India and even managed to go up into the Arctic Circle. Every new place and experience has a tale to tell and creates stories in me that I try to capture and express.”

Ralph Gabriner-headshot“These photographs are no act of imagination. They exist only as the accidental result of shoe leather meeting subject matter. This is my way of saying at the outset that I approach without preconception.  Anyway, life is much stranger than I could ever imagine.  It is an odd fact, but for me the act of stumbling around is more effective as a method for taking pictures (even though it’s a tiresome process) than it would be to hire some actors and stage a play for the camera.

For example, I would never have the imagination to blow life into a line of laundry as it was drying on a windy day.  And, it would never occur to me to devise a giant machine that crushes rock and then place a man on top of this machine wearing a bandana while the mirage of a new car floats in the sky behind him.  Only the greatest theatrical talent could imagine such a thing, and then to stage it, why it would cost a fortune!  It’s better to stroll around the Bronx where such things are known to take place, free of charge.  And, even if you had the money to squander on such a project how would you ever train birds to fly in formation beneath an overhead pipeline?

No, I’ve thought about this awhile now, and I’ve come to this conclusion:  There is no concept born in my brain that could ever be as vital as the interweaving of elements that occurs every day without my even saying a word or issuing a command.  One just has to get out and “be there.”  In case you don’t have the time for that, I’ve done it for you.”

Keith Green’s Portraits Featured in New Book on the Chelsea Hotel


Photographer Keith Green’s portraits of rock icon Dee Dee Ramone will be used as the cover photo for a book from Simon and Schuster on the Chelsea Hotel.  The photos were featured in transFORM Gallery’s Summer Exhibition and remain on display through January 4th, 2014.

Green is known for his portraits of West Village rock icons.  Keith’s most noted work features an exclusive photo-essay of the late punk icon Dee Dee Ramone, which was captured at the infamous Chelsea Hotel during the spring and summer of 1993 as Dee Dee struggled to overcome his addiction to heroin.  His work has been used in many biographies and autobiographies about the seminal punk rock group, the Ramones, and has been published in magazines including Hamptons, London Sunday Times, Time Out New York, and Rolling Stone.

The Chelsea Hotel, since its founding by a visionary French architect in 1884, has been an icon of American invention: a cultural dynamo and haven for the counterculture, all in one astonishing building. Sherill Tippins, author of the acclaimed February House, delivers a masterful and endlessly entertaining history of the Chelsea and of the successive generations of artists who have cohabited and created there, among them Thomas Wolfe, Dylan Thomas, Arthur Miller, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol, Sam Shepard, Sid Vicious, and Dee Dee Ramone. Now as legendary as the artists it has housed and the countless creative collaborations it has sparked, the Chelsea has always stood as a mystery as well: why and how did this hotel become the largest and longest-lived artists’ community in the known world? Inside the Dream Palace is the intimate and definitive story. – See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.co.uk/Inside-the-Dream-Palace/Sherill-Tippins/9780743295611#sthash.e09h65HC.dpuf
