Have ever looked at a photo and asked yourself how did they get that shot? I ask it all the time. Martin Wonnacott is known as the “Master of Liquid” and with good reason.his photos for the beverage industry are absolutely outstanding. The video below is a behind the scenes look at a recent photo shoot Wonnacott did. There is an in-depth interview on ProFoto’s blog here that is definitely worth the read if you are into this sort of thing.
“It was this shock of the new that led to many a trespassing adventure and a lifelong fascination for graffiti. “One day a young boy said to me: ‘why don’t you photograph graffiti?’ He opened his note book and showed me his drawings. The minute I understood that there was a systematic designing and painting on the wall I became fascinated.”
Submarine Channel, the folks that give you websites like “Forget the Film, Watch the Titles” have a website and a Vimeo channel that is dedicated to interviewing artist, filmographers, designers, illustrators, musicians etc. I try to check it out on a regular basis but time tends to get in the way, so unfortunately I don’t. This morning however, I stopped by and found this great interview with photographer Martha Cooper, the Grande Dame of Hip Hop Documentation who has over the last 30 plus years documented some of the greatest graffiti artist in the world. This short film shows not only her passion for the work, but her deep fascination with the culture, and creativity that goes into so much street art. Even though there were some issues with the way the film is shot and edited for me, the five minute short is worth a watch.
