If you think winter is cold, be glad you are not in Antarctica. A new look at NASA satellite data revealed that Earth set a new record for coldest temperature recorded in East Antarctica.
Street photography was my first love and it is something I’ve always done. In my early twenties, I moved from my childhood home in Kilkenny, Ireland to Paris, France. I was a post grad science student in Paris, devouring the humanistic work of Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith & Andre Kertesz. Through a series of serendipitous events, my unearthed passion for photography evolved into a career as a commercial photographer.
All of my commercial work is informed by my attraction to street photography, in that I’ve always tried to make photos that had the spontaneity of a reportage photo despite their construction. It is not always easy but the instincts built up by constantly shooting for myself help.
Artist rendering of how cellular signals might appear in the Hollywood Hills if we could see the electromagnetic radiation at these frequencies as we can in the visible spectrum. The long-distance tower is radiating three channel combinations in three directions indicated by the red, yellow and blue radiation patterns. In the background are cell stations each of which have 3 sector antenna radiation patterns as well.
Kirsty Mitchell - born in 1976 and raised in the English county of Kent, known to many as the ‘Garden of England’. My earliest memories were always of the stories read to me by my mother as a child … how it felt to be curled into her side, listening to the rush of her breath as she paused for effect, before launching into yet another characters voice. She was an English teacher, and read to me almost everyday, to an age I could no longer admit to my friends. She instilled in me the most precious gift a mother could, her imagination and a belief in beauty…… it became my root, and the place I constantly try to return to in my work, and my dreams. Growing up, art became my sole passion. I studied until I was 25, taking courses in the history of art, photography, fine art, and then on to train in ‘Costume for Performance’ at the London College of Fashion.
