PHOTOS FROM JOURNALS – Josh Kern

Josh Kern is the first photographer to be featured on kapture. As this site starts to grow, it expands into new territory and hopes to inspire by sharing art of many other artists. Kern is a German emerging photographer who not only creates art but manages to capture feeling in his work by shooting in film, he adds rawness to his work. His work is unique because he picks up the camera when everyone puts theirs away; during the moments when you’re too busy actually being alive than capturing the moment for social media. And through pairing his work with journal entries, Kern adds even more rawness to his work. His work teaches us to do what makes you uncomfortable, because that’s when we produce the best art.

CANNES & MONACO

After posting these pictures I will have to officially have to say goodbye to summer – and I really don’t want to do that 😦 However in this post, I’m finally sharing my photos from Monaco and Cannes. When I went on my trip to Nice, with my mum, we also took two days out of our stay in Nice and went to explore Monaco and Cannes. It was such a good decision! Monaco was an interesting and exciting experience. For the whole day there I was wondering how is it possible that so much wealth is stored in such a small place! I saw a 3 floor yacht with a helicopter parked at the top… like, really?! It was honestly the highlight of the day! My mum and I couldn’t stop laughing about it. In other news – I loved the architecture there, the tall buildings kind of resembled Hong Kong… I don’t know why but Monaco didn’t feel like it was in Europe. After a lot of walking and climbing we arrived at …

CAPTURING FEELINGS

One question that haunts me as a photographer is, “how do I capture the beautiful moments of my life? How can I document the place, the people and the feeling that creates a perfect moment?” It’s easy to take a photo – we do it all the time, it only requires one click on our phones, and we instantly have the option of sharing it with the rest of the world. But how do we take the perfect photo? The one that makes people feel something, and is that even possible? According to Jabez Hughes, there are three types of photography that exists: mechanical – a simple representation, art photography – where the photographer determines to diffuse his mind into objects that he takes a photo of, and the high-art photography – photographs with a purpose of stimulating the person who is looking at it. There is a big gap between the photos I currently take, and the photos I want to be taking, so this post if a sort of reminder to me as well …

FINDING YOUR STYLE

Finding your own personal style as an artist is an individual journey one must go on to be successful, to be recognisable, at least that’s what someone told me. And I agree. Once a person finds their own style, consciously or not, it adds something to their art work. I think every artist needs to go on that journey, whether you’re a painter, singer, photographer or dancer, everyone needs to add a bit of their own personality into their art. It took me a long time to find my style, I only used to shoot landscapes when I was teaching myself the basics of photography and I had no clue how I was meant to incorporate any of my personality into landscapes and I remember getting really frustrated with myself as well as worried that I will never find it. However then I started spending a lot of my time researching different photographers, seeing what I like what I dislike and trying to mix that with my own photos. I’ve included some of my favourite …

BRIGHTON TRIP

I still haven’t written about my trip to Brighton, and I really should’ve because it was such a weird experience. Don’t get me wrong the trip itself was really fun and it was nice to do something together with my friends that I haven’t seen since summer, but the whole of that day felt – like a dream, or a very strange deja vu. The last time I went to Brighton I was maybe 7 or 6. I was just a tiny me, running around the pebbles, holding my parents’ hands while they pretended to throw me in the air. I still have memories from that day. So when I went to Brighton, yet again (for the second time in my life), and I found the sea side… everything felt so weird, in slow motion nearly. It felt like I just walked into a dream or a parallel universe, and it was so beautiful. Here are some photos from that day. Travel Tips: If you’re planning to visit Brighton, visit it for one day (two …

AUTUMN BEHIND A FOG

My first blog was going to be about my trip to Brighton, but then this morning happened and I had to take some photos for my photography class this week,  so I grabbed my camera and a penny board and rushed off at 10 a.m. with no destination. As soon as I left my house I realised I can’t see anything passed, maybe 15-20 meters. The fog covered the landscape and the gloomy weather, orange leafs and the birds singing in the background made this morning the most beautiful morning of my life. As I walked around my nearest park listening to Ed Sheeran (yes I know, how cheesy and cliche, but trust me those songs made everything more beautiful), my shoes completely soaked though but I think the photos were worth it!
