The Hipstography Awards 2015 – Nominees for Monochrome Combo of the Year

By on janvier 27, 2016

Quels sont vos 3 combos préférés? Vous pouvez voter pour un seul portfolio, pour deux ou pour trois; trois étant le maximum. Un seul vote par personne est autorisé.

En raison du nombre important de photos, le chargement des séries de photos peut prendre quelques minutes. Nous vous demandons donc un peu de patience.

Fin des votes pour cette catégorie: le samedi 30 janvier.

Remarque pour les lecteurs francophones: étant seul à gérer le site, il m'est impossible de copier les textes accompagnants les portfolios dans les deux langues. Je n'ai donc gardé que l'anglais. Merci de votre compréhension.


Combo #355 (Valery Hache)

Lens:  John S 
Film:  BlacKeys SuperGrain 
Flash: off


"So, there we go: the 68th Festival de Cannes is over. And let it be said that, for quite a few of us, it will take some time before our feet touch the ground again! The highlights of the last week included the attendance of a number of top models such as Natasha Oly, Karlie Kloss and Doutzen Kroes, to name but a few… and, of course, the AMFAR party which took place at the Cap d’Antibes, in the notable presence of Leonardo di Caprio. This is of course a cinema festival, so the best of the best showed up in all their glamour: Nathalie Portman, Sean Pen, Charlize Theron, Gerard Depardieu, Naomi Watts, Isabelle Huppert etc…
As far as Hipstamatic shots go, I was confronted by a rather difficult light issue due to the crushing heat that reigned during the Festival, but BlacKeys SuperGrain combined with the John S lens, saved the day! I can only say that I’m already waiting impatiently for the next edition!"

Combo #358 (Vytautas Ambrazas)

Lens:  Americana 
Film:  BlacKeys SuperGrain 
Flash: off


"I’m drawn to street photography because it is unpredictable and spontaneous. Quite a few things have to come together for a visually interesting photograph. It’s like a hunt of some sort or as Forest Gump’s mama used to say 'Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get'."
Vytautas Ambrazas


Combo #360 (Deep Ghosh)

Lens:  Madalena 
Film:  US1776 
Flash: off


"Up close, Kolkata is just like any other urban space, crowded and impersonal. But sometimes, I find it intensely intimate, its dirt and grime becomes the emotional bond of a relationship that has been forged since my childhood. Sometimes it seems necessary to explore the realities of this monochrome city, away from the bright colourful sentiments, it has a base and gloomy personality and it moves me beyond anything else. These are the intimate moments from my emotional bond with my city, my first love."
Deep Ghosh


Combo #401 (Patricia Truchsess)

Lens:  Bruno 
Film:  BlacKeys 44 
Using: Oggl


"To capture these perfect silhouettes, I chose this combo because BlacKeys 44 has a nice warm touch and Bruno adds contrast to the monochrome motives."
Patricia Truchsess


Combo #415 (André Feltes)

Lens:  John S 
Film:  AO BW 
Flash:  Standard 


"This series was made during my daily commutes between the train stations of the metropolitan area of Porto Alegre (Southern Brazil). I like to photograph the humans moving through the exits and entrances of the stations, and its surrounding areas, as well as its architecture.
The combo John S/AO BW is great for those who want a strong and accurate record in black and white, and the light leaks from the shadows, resulting in a chiaroscuro that shows and hides the passage of people and rewrites this architecture.
André Feltes
