Happy Friday everyone!
Today’s inspiration is one of my favorite photo by the talented Japanese photographer Shinya Arimoto.
By the way, happy father’s day to all the wonderful dads out there!
It’s Friday, and today the Friday inspiration by Carte Blanche is a soft and tender Polaroid by Saya Chontang.
Celebrate beauty and femininity with the photos of this young French photographer who seems to understand women’s dreams…
Today is Friday. I nearly forgot about the Friday photo by Gallery Carte Blanche! So much in my mind lately.This is the last Friday of Gallery Carte Blanche on Valencia Street in San Francisco. The physical gallery will be closing on Sunday.
Yes it’s a little sad, but it’s only a break. Stay connected to know what we will do next and in the meantime keep following us online.
And the good news is that for the next 2 days everything - books, prints, frames - in the gallery is 25% off. And it includes this awesome photo by Matthias Heiderich and a lot more!
See you there this week-end!
With the new Winogrand show at the SFMOMA fresh on our minds, we thought our Friday photo should give you just a little more street photography inspiration! Check out the amazing work by Greek street photographer, Petros Kotzabasis from his series, Street Life, Greece.
About the Series: Street Life, Greece:
Petros Kotzabasis’s photos explore life around him and within him, using only the street life of the small Greek town where he grew up and lives to investigate and describe his own feelings and fears
About Petros Kotzabasis:
Petros Kotzabasis was born and still lives in Komotini, a small town in the north of Greece, where he has taught photography since 2007, to students of the Democritus University of Thrace. He learned to take photos by standing on his family’s doorstep and making up stories about the people passing by in the street.
New to the gallery bookstore is the third installment of Carte Blanche’s permanent collection artist, Shinya Arimoto’s popular “Ariphoto” magazine series. This volume documents a trip Arimoto made to Tibet.
This weeks Friday photo is by the amazingly talented Wang Yuanling from his series on the Yangtze River in China, River Basins.
About Wang Yuanling:
Born in 1980 in China’s Chongqing Municipality, Wang Yuanling received a degree in Chinese Language and Literature before beginning to work as a photographer. He lives and works in the city he grew up in, the subject of his images, which have been exhibited and recognized around China.
About the series River Basins:
Born and bred on the banks of the Yangtze River, Wang Yuanling naturally turned his camera to the people whose lives are shaped by its waters. His images of his home town, Chongqing, tell the story not only of that place, but also of daily life across China.
