He took interest in photography in the early 1970s, quickly abandoned painting, which was to become his specialty, and enrolled in the Photography department of Chung-Ang University, Seoul. His very early works are mainly street photographs. Black and white pictures taken between 1972 and 1975 formed the core of his first solo show Photo Poems held in Seoul in 1975. Dark cityscapes imbued with uncertain anxiety and irony arose extremely opposite reactions. Boomoon was labeled by the media as "a heretic of Korean photography". Some violent critics were only encouragement for him to continue to photograph.  photo 04_zps33d28b21.jpg  photo 05_zps57333fcb.jpg

Izima Kaoru

 photo Untitled-2_zps68a053a9.jpg  photo Untitled-3_zps96357c2b.jpg  photo Untitled-1_zps94ec731b.jpg Japanese photographer Izima Kaoru has been creating scenes of sophisticated violence and enchanting horror since 1993. Kaoru lets famous models and actresses to describe fantasies of their own deaths and then stages them for the camera. Working in multiple panel sequences, his photos allude to film: wide-angle shots set the scene before giving way to medium and close-up views, details of the women's fantasies revealed along the way. The models are perfectly coiffed, hair and makeup flawlessly in place, outfitted in couture by Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Jil Sander Jean Paul Gaultier. The glamour of the models' attire is matched by the unusual locations. The photographer’s graceful treatment of the human figure in a landscape juxtaposed against the shock value of death is even more pronounced in this latest endeavor. And so the photos that show the crime scene (or that of natural death) do not allude to something fatal and irreversible but a kind of elegant and highly aesthetic ceremony.  photo Untitled-6_zpsc61d7136.jpg  photo Untitled-5_zps7f6fa3e7.jpg  photo Untitled-4_zpsedbdb566.jpg

Bruce Omori

 photo image4_zps2fe7d4ff.png  photo image2_zps982bc325.png  photo image1_zps57fac67f.png  photo image3_zpsfc9d7df1.png Bruce Omori is a photographer based in Hilo, Hawai‘i. Although he has been shooting full-time for just several years, his passion for the craft developed long ago. As a kid, it began as a fascination with the magical ability of film to capture a moment of time, being able to hold it in your hand, slip it in your pocket, and share it with the world… at school. That fascination is still very much alive today, as Bruce strives to infuse elements of the moment into each frame, such as emotion, energy, and beauty, with the creative use of light and movement. His easy-going, unassuming personality and fondness for the ‘aina are also reflected in his work. From portraits of surfers on the beach to photos of native Hawaiian honeycreepers deep in the rainforest, he captures an integral part of life in Hawaii from a local perspective. After spending 24 years with an engineering firm on Oahu, Bruce kissed life in corporate America goodbye and moved back to his hometown of Hilo with his family to pursue this passion, and continues to artistically interpret his view of our beautiful island home through the lens.  photo image_zpsa024086b.png  photo image5_zpsaf5e0742.png  photo image6_zpsd1189b7f.png

In past years Stoll's photography has been a major influence on the corporate image of global companies like General Electrics, IBM and Microsoft. Without being compelled to show greatness, he nonetheless succeeds in making greatness visible with his architectural settings and interior shots. In his still life photographs even the most banal objects undergo a metamorphosis, which may be the result of intensive digital processing, which transforms them into objects of desire.  photo 32f00c382ca9996a3423d556c81f726d_zpsc2b71116.jpg  photo e43883cb6c62ff3d7454d75dc30c33ce_zpsc78c3589.jpg
