Photographer Captures Both Sides of Emotional Hugs

1

Care Deeply” is a series of photos by Thai photographer Patcha Kitchaicharoen that captures the simple fact that there are 2 sides to every emotional hug.

The 28-year-old Kitchaicharoen was scheduled to move overseas to New York City to begin her studies at the International Center of Photography School. Before leaving her life in Bangkok, Thailand for at least a year, Kitchaicharoen decided to invite her closest friends and family into the photo studio for a final photo project.

Kitchaicharoen set up two Canon 5D Mark III DSLRs on tripods on either side of the studio space and connected them to remote shutter releases. She then said her farewells to her loved ones and gave them goodbye hugs. At the same time, she triggered simultaneous photos with the cameras to capture the emotion happening on both sides of the embrace.

Kitchaicharoen later found out that her visa application had been declined, so she’ll actually be sticking around her loved ones for another year before hopefully enrolling in the program in 2016 (ICP School is holding her spot for her). You can find more of Kitchaicharoen’s work on her website.

Curious Deer Photobombs Baby’s Photoshoot and Turns It into a Magical Portrait

1

Photographer Megan Rion of Imagine That Photography was capturing 1-month-old Connor Rogers’ portrait when an intrigued woodland creature unexpectedly interfered. While Connor was serenely sleeping on a hay stack surrounded by gourds and autumn leaves, a curious deer name Maggie wandered over. When she was a fawn, young Maggie had been hand-fed and inevitably became comfortable with human beings.

Now, she wanders around Louisiana’s Sam Houston Jones State Park and occasionally shows up during Rion’s photoshoots. Even though Maggie has a reputation amongst parents who’d like her to be included in their child’s portrait, there’s no guarantee that she’ll turn up. However, when the deer does arrive, Rion makes sure that her assistant is close by her subject, since Maggie’s still a wild animal.

Fortunately, Maggie was nearby when the Rogers family was at the park with Rion. The photographer’s assistant lured the deer over with an ear of corn, which allowed the artist to capture the perfect shot. With her natural beauty, Maggie easily makes Connor’s portrait all the more magical.

Check out these other photo shoots with the adorable Maggie:

Revealing Portraits of Heavily Tattooed People Who Normally Cover Their Whole Bodies

1

For many people, their skin is a canvas on which to display beautiful body art. Some folks are satisfied with one or two tattoos, but others keep going until entire areas of their body are camouflaged in colorful ink. British photographer Alan Powdrill documents these brazen bodies in COVERED, an homage to those willing to go to the tattooing extreme. His series features two images per person: one where they’re bundled head-to-toe, and another where they’re showing off their complex tapestry of tattoos.

“My tattoos are part of who I am and I’ll always love my bodysuit now and when I’m 80. The love I get for what I look like is what it’s all about.” (Victoria, 37)

The revealing photographs demonstrate the complexity of human identity. To these people, clothes symbolize just one part of their lives. Powdrill’s subjects wear suits, tailored jeans, and pressed shirts—they are business professionals, hardworking laborers, and responsible parents. Wearing these garments make us view them in a certain way, one that reflects a “civilized” demeanor. But when they’re undressed, if offers a different aspect of their lifestyle, and begs the question: do we change our attitude towards a person once we discover they’ve got a giant tiger across their back? Also, can any one image truly reflect the complexity of a human’s character?

“I was 17. I hid the first few from my parents for many years and by the time they found out they knew this was going to be my life.” (Philip, 27)

Powdrill met COVERED’s subjects at tattoo conferences and on social media. As word of the project spread, he found dozens of people eager to show off their work. All of the portraits were taken outside of the sitters’ homes, and Powdrill accompanies each portrait with a meaningful quote from them, about their tattoos.

COVERED will be on view at Mother London starting November 11.

“I was 51 when I started and my father was already dead and my mum didn’t say anything as she was in the early stages of dementia.” (Graham, 58)

Mike Brodie’s Amazing Photos Of Teenage Freight Train Hitchhikers

4WN8nUn

Mike Brodie‘s life, when told by a stranger, seems a lot like free association — where one thing leads to the next, leads to the next, etc.

It all happened during that year photographer Mike Brodie would hitchhike numerous US freight trains photographing the life of a group of his friends – wayward teenagers, adventure seekers & high school runaways.

From taking in the view from the rooftops of train carriages to sleeping amongst the rough banks of the railroads themselves, Brodie was there catching an incredible moment in time.

It all began when Brodie found an abandoned Polaroid camera folded behind a car seat; that was the very moment that his passion and love affair with photography started. To date, his adventures have seen him travel over 50K miles, snatched a lift from 170+ long haul freight trains and passed through 46 US States in the process.

It’s unusual to see photographs with such spirit and soul. There’s a rawness to Brodie’s work, a reflection one would think on the ramshackle nature of his environment. The images below were shot using 35mm film, providing a rich tapestry to his exhilarating and unique journeys.
