Jocelyn Catterson

much like previously featured Kevin Russ and Nicola Odemann, 21 year old Jocelyn Catterson beautifully documents her love for the great outdoors. she shares photos of her travels to National Parks across the states (Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Nevada, California etc etc) on her website & flickr.

I grew up in a small town in Colorado and fell madly in love with the mountains. This passion has grown more intense with time and has come to include the desert, the plains, and the rivers, a passion for morning light and deep canyons, the smell of pine trees and hours spent on the road. These things have become the driving force behind my life and my photography. I have become fascinated with the connection between man and nature and the simplistic beauty of a life lived in a tent/on the road.

Nicola Odemann

it is possible that i haven’t left the apartment in two days, and it is also possible that i’m still wearing my pajamas at 1pm. so looking at these incredible photos by Nicola Odemann made me feel bad about all that, of course, but they also filled me with a desire to go climb a mountain. so i might just do that, but in the meantime i will be dreaming about the alps and snowy peaks and golden forests.

Drift

i’ve featured the photography of Hannah Davis before here and here, so i was excited to see an amazing blog she set up that documents her 6+ months of travels through a number of south american countries and the wonderful landscapes of New Zealand. i asked Hannah for some more information, and she told me that she took about 45 rolls of 35mm film and 40 rolls of medium format throughout the entire trip. wowzers.

We went travelling for 6 and a half months – starting in New Zealand, then we travelled through Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala, Belize and Mexico.  That was the first half of our trip.  Then we flew to San Francisco (where I have just got to on the blog!) and we travelled around the west side of the states, started running out of money so decided to go to Jamaica before our last week in New York! I haven’t been particularly selective about the photos shown – for myself they are a collection of memories as much as anything. Obviously to someone who doesn’t know us, I wanted the photos to depict a journey which captures that wonderful feeling of drifting from one place to the next – taking in beautiful landscapes and also catching a more intimate glimpse of our lives on the road.

follow Hannah at her website, flickr and of course her travel blog. also check out her project with Kate Duncan Rock, Forest, Sea.

Anna Gawlak

remember i said one of my goals for this year is to pick up an actual camera again? well i not so secretly wish my personal photo collection would resemble something along the lines of Anna Gawlak’s. she is a Polish photographer who describes her work better than i ever could…

This is my photo album. Its creation is like spinning a tale: spooling a film, snapping photographs, composing them… The narrative about calmness and naturalness. Calmness is more than lack of movement – I cannot stop searching it everywhere I am. Searching the naturalness means trying to pick out what is true and simple in the world – I cannot stop doing it. But, first and foremost, my own story is about big, big love. I love the world: light, colour, contrast, symmetry, trees, tasty food, buildings, doors, feet, ankles, eyes. I love the human being. Everywhere I am – I cannot stop searching. And all that makes the simple pleasures of life.

Isabelle Bertolini

now, i know that people love to make fun of the many, many food photos you see on Instagram these days – but i for one love them. they are usually the number 1 photo that i tend to favourite, especially when the food in question involves the simple and best things in life – bread, butter and cheese.

so i was browsing through a flickr group called Food + Film when i realised that all the pictures i really loved, and clicked through to, were taken by photographer Isabelle Bertolini. based in paris, Isabelle takes most of her photos with a variety of film cameras (see her blog for more of her work and a list of cameras in her kit). be sure to visit her flickr where you can browse through the rest of her food photos and another lovely set called simple things.
