Equality diversity inclusion in Portrait Photography

  1. 1. Equality Diversity Inclusion
  2. 2. Portrait Photography Portrait photography is the art of photographing an individual or small group of people. The real goal to portrait photography is to demonstrate the mood, personality or likeness of a person(s).
  3. 3. Your Portraiture Final Outcomes • You need to produce 2-4 final images • These should tackle an issue of equality, diversity or inclusion through portraits of people • Include your artist statement before your final outcomes • Attempt to give each image must have a 50 word caption • All images need to printed A4 on photo paper

  5. 5. Sally Mann http://www.aperture.org/shop/ books/immediate-family-2592 "Mann's subjects are her small children (a boy, a girl, and a new baby), often shot when they're sick or hurt or just naked. Nosebleeds, cuts, hives, chicken pox, swollen eyes, vomiting— the usual trials of childhood— can be alarmingly beautiful, thrillingly sensual moments in Mann's portrait album. Her ambivalence about motherhood—her delight and despair—pushes Mann to delve deeper into the steaming mess of family life than most of us are willing to go. What she comes up with is astonishing." —Vince Aletti, The Village Voice

  10. 10. Nicholas Nixon His early work showed a remarkable mastery of large format photography in situations where one would expect to see 35mm cameras; his portrait work includes a series on four sisters taken over a 15-year period and images of people with AIDS.

  16. 16.  Jaskirt Dhaliwal Everyday Olympian The Everyday Olympian documents people involved in local community sports, be it a 12 year old swimmer, 60 year old hockey player or 30 year old amateur boxer. These are the people that make up the tapestry of sports that thrive at grass roots level across the region. They may not be an Olympian, however it is through their commitment and participation on a weekly or daily basis that so many sports still function and exist. Shot on medium format, all the participants were photographed after taking part in competition or training. Everyday Olympian was the winner of Magnum Showcase Sports with Ideas Tap 2012, selected for Foto8 Summershow 2012 and also featured in The Sunday Times magazine. This body of work has been supported by Kalaboration, Arts Council England and the Cultural Olympiad.

  18. 18. • Diane Arbus March 14, 1923 – July 26, 1971, An American photographer and writer noted for black and white square photographs of "deviant and marginal people or of people whose normality seems ugly or surreal. Diane believed that a camera could be “a little bit cold, a little bit harsh” but its scrutiny revealed the truth; the difference between what people wanted others to see and what they really did see – the flaws. A friend said that Arbus said that she was “afraid” that she would be known simply as 'the photographer of freaks'"; however, that phrase has been used repeatedly to describe her.
  19. 19. Timothy Archibald – sometimes I wonder • photography was a way of connecting with his autistic son, Eli. Archibald says, “People jump to all sorts of desperate measures to feel like they’re doing something— a diet, a new medication, a special doctor…and this helped me feel like I was doing something.…We got to work as equals on something.”
  20. 20.  Evi Numan  My work consists of portraits of people with medical disorders that are invisible to the casual observer. I try to photograph the intangible beauty that comes from the mental and physical suffering that often plagues the human condition, but is rarely explored in an honest manner. I’m interested in the painful and exhilarating experiences that colour their lives of those suffering from mental and neurological illness and I attempt to reveal them on the faces of my subjects. Using the face as a map of psychological experience, I try to unveil the telltale subtleties apparent in each individual’s physiognomy.  http://evinumen.com/section/67902_Portraits.html
  21. 21. Over the course of a year, I photographed individuals who described themselves as being gravely affected by their psychological and/or physiological illness, responding to a relevant ad I placed. Each sitter is positioned against a dark background with no visible signs of clothing, makeup or jewelry. Each person is stripped bare so that nothing distracts from their often piercing gaze.
  22. 22. Skin Portraits by Adrienne M. Norman • In 2000 writer and philosopher Drs. Tanny Dobbelaar and I worked on a series of portraits and interviews with people who have a chronic skin disorder. Our two year collaboration resulted in a Dutch language book entitled 'Heftig Vel'.

  29. 29. Sebastiao Salgado A photojournalist in the best sense of the word, Sebasiao Salgado is fascinated with people who work hard in all parts of the world. From landless workers trying to claim property for themselves in Brazil to Oil workers putting out fires in Kuwait, Salgado's lens captures the beauty in his subjects' gritty reality. Look at his work: Workers and Genesis (below)

  32. 32.  Jaskirt Dhaliwal • British Asian Musicians The cultural and historical importance of these musicians is immense, they represent, reflect and connect with today’s second and third generation of British Asians and despite differing styles of music or the message they project, all have commonalities; South Asian roots and a place in British Asian culture. • All of the artists who feature in British Asian Musicians were photographed in a place of importance to them, places where they have drawn some of their musical inspiration, whether this is Soho Road, The Tate Modern, old school parks or garden sheds.
  33. 33. Femmes Algériennes 1960 by Marc Garanger One by one, villagers, predominantly women, were forced to pose for Garanger, whose task was to produce the images needed for new mandatory ID cards. Less than a year later, Garanger's images of shamed and angry Algerian women would become a symbol of French oppression over its Northern African colony."

  37. 37. Rodeo girls by Ilona Szwarc Rodeo Girls is an ongoing portrait project about young girls from Texas who compete in rodeos. These individuals have a fundamentally different idea about their femininity and a contrasting attitude towards gender roles. They are engaged in activities that traditionally were reserved for men; they possess great physical strength and demonstrate their dominance over animals. I am interested in the limitation these girls face in expressing their femininity and the transference of it onto animals.

  40. 40.  Jaskirt Dhaliwal Women's Football The idea that some of the nation’s best female footballers could pass you on the street and you would not know them is a telling fact in a world where male footballers are ranked as celebrities. Female football players have little or no recognition, but with the new Super League launched in 2011 and Olympics in 2012 is that about to change? These women look like your best friend, your average student, the woman you sit next to on the bus… and they have no airs and graces about them, yet they are all of these things and also England’s best footballers on the weekends. Karen Carney maybe a year younger than Wayne Rooney, Sue Smith may have been voted best footballer in the world, however do they get the recognition their talent truly deserves? This PIC (Photo Imaging Council) award winning body of work explores the recognition and exposure that the women's largest participated UK sport receives and also the identity of it's players.
  41. 41. 100 leading ladies by Nancy Honey In today’s Britain, women in senior management or influential positions over the age of 55 years are invisible. Statistics highlight how few women are in positions of power, from Parliament to the boardroom. Yet the few who do break through this glass ceiling remain largely uncelebrated and unheard of. Celebrities like Judy Dench are well known, but who has heard of Averil Mansfield, the UK’s first female professor of surgery, Pauline Clare, the first British woman to become a Chief Constable or Joy Larkcom, the British woman whose studies and adventures brought rocket and pak choi into this country and onto our dinner plates? Who are these unseen leading ladies?
  42. 42. Nancy Honey
  43. 43. Nancy Honey – Leading Ladies In this project 100 older women of major influence in Britain today are photographed and interviewed: from film studios to science labs and the Houses of Parliament, women from every walk of life, whose jobs are essential to the running of this country. What would they tell their younger self? How did they manage their jobs and families? Did their achievement take its toll? Are young women today attempting too much? Have men’s attitudes shifted accordingly? In my own lifetime I have witnessed a profound shift: from little girls imagining their future as marriage and children to the now total belief from childhood that a woman will grow up to have a career outside the home. It is more important than ever to see the important women from all fields in our society and hear their voices of experience. As one of our subjects says in her interview, there is a woman’s revolution every fifty years and the next is due just around the corner in 2018. So as one chapter in the history of women in work comes to a close and another begins, this book will bring together one hundred portraits, each accompanied by an interview with the sitter telling, in essence, one hundred stories, each unique, of ‘how I made it work.’ In making invisible women visible, this book will create twenty first century icons. But this book is not a power list. The women, purposefully, are not ranked according to their influence. The project takes a deeper, more nuanced look at the myriad and sometimes subtle ways in which women have wielded influence over the last couple of decades and how that is changing.
  44. 44. Anita Corbin – First Women UK Anita’s project First Women looks at how women will be remembered over the past 100 years. In the years leading up to 2018, the 100th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage, Anita is shooting and collecting 100 iconic portraits of 21st century women who have achieved the landmark title “First Woman” across a range of fields. http://vimeo.com/62410744

  53. 53. Annunciation by Elina Brotherus In her series the Annunciation Elina Brotherus (b. 1972, Finland) records herself through years of failed IVF treatments. Full of art historical references, Brotherus’ images stand in sharp contrast to the traditional scenes and symbolism of Annunciation paintings. While the Virgin Mary receives the news that she is to give birth to the son of God, Brotherus pictures herself month after month in-front of a succession of negative pregnancy tests. Feelings of elation and abundance are replaced with those of sorrow and loss. Brotherus’ photographs question the term ‘mother’, suggesting that it can stem from intention rather than being bound to biology or the physical act of having a child.

Liz Hingley – Under Gods (book in the library) Photographer Liz Hingley’s first image in her series ‘Under Gods: Stories from Soho Road’ depicts an unremarkable dual carriageway running north from Birmingham’s city centre. Under Gods, Soho Road, Liz Hingley, Birmingham But for Hingley, who grew up there, this threemile stretch of road is one of the most varied and fascinating corners of the country. It is a junction of diverse faith, where Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and Jain, Christian and Sikh meet. “Faith is exhibited in all the shops, shown off as symbols on hats and t-shirts, branded in tattoos,” says Hingley. “It is religion rather than race that now defines the local communities.”

  60. 60.  Nan Goldin This series of photographs are of Gilles Dusein and Gotscho, lovers who lived in France in 1992 and 1993.

His passionate photographs enlightened the world and brought about legislation that has protected millions since his work appeared in the early 20th century.

  65. 65. • Maurice Broomfield Broomfield was “one of the first industrial and architectural photographers to use his corporate commissions to make visionary photographic studies of the workers and the environments in which they worked,” writes the Host Gallery, which, last year, put on the first retrospective of the photographer’s iconic images of industrial Britain from the 1950s to the 1970s.
  66. 66. Henri Cartier-Bresson The father of Photo Reportage and co-founder of the legendary Magnum photo agency, "HCB" has influenced generations of photojournalists, documentary photographers and street photographers. Influenced and inspired by classical and impressionist art and freed by the portability of the Leica, HC-B changed the way we look at the world around us.
  67. 67. Edward Steichen As the curator of the photo collection for the New York Museum of Modern Art, Steichen was the man behind The Family Of Man, a late 1950's photo exhibition and recently-republished book that was a watershed in the history of photography because it gave photography mass appeal as an expressive, fine art. His curatorship brought about a grand era for "Concerned" photography.
