    Jobe Lawrenson: Personal Work


Brilliant personal portfolio from in-demand photo star Jobe Lawrenson

Posted by Rob Alderson,

There’s lots of things I like about Jobe Lawrenson after spending some time on his site. I like his quirky, confident portfolio of work for a roster of top clients including Monocle, Esquire and ASOS. I like the fact he’s called Jobe (I don’t know anyone called Jobe!). But most of all I like his personal work, which shows off his brilliance with composition, texture and colour in less formal ways. Pick of the bunch is the wonderfully tongue-in-cheek photos of novelty plates in use mid-meal but I pretty much love it all. So if you’re in need of a fantastic photographer buy Jobe, this guy’s good.

    We just can’t get enough of well-executed GIFs here at It’s Nice That at the moment, so we were rather chuffed when today’s grey morning was brightened up with these stunning moving images from photographer Chris O’Donovan.

    The confined chaos within Astrid Korntheuer’s images hits you instantly, as though the vibrant disorder is actively trying to push its way through the edges of the photograph. The series titled Natures Morte (Still Life), was conceived by photographing 25 square metre installations the German photographer made herself using various materials to create a man-made forest of jumble.

  3. List

    It’s generally accepted that society gets the celebrities it deserves, that fame doesn’t just happen and we have to understand why certain people get put on a pedestal. Nowhere is this more interesting than in the case of Ron Jeremy, the world’s most recognisable porn star. Recently Ron went to Sydney to promote a new rum that bears his name, and filmmakers Ingvar Kenne and Cameron Gray were given full access to him for 48 hours, travelling in his stretched Hummer to various parties whose organisers had applied on Facebook to have him turn up.

    Harley Weir is an extraordinary talent. Her work is bold and unreserved, whether it be part of a personal project investigating the border between Israel and Palestine, a vibrant fashion editorial for the likes of British Vogue, or a series of ethereal portraits capturing redheads with all of the eerie stillness of Millais’ Ophelia.

  5. Lisr

    Annabel Miedema describes her series Acting Future as “an experimental journey with my family,” and the word experimental is certainly apt. The series sees Annabel, a young Netherlands-based photographer, reimagine what the future might look like if time were to collapse, and the cultural behaviours of the 1960s and 70s to become au fait again.

    French photographer Paul Rousteau sounds like a nice chap – one with a bright outlook on life reflected in the bold pops of colour he adorns his editorial work with. “Being cynical is too easy because everyone has a lack of something”, he told Art Book Guy. “So I try to see the beautiful things in people, even if it’s a bit naive or even in a cynical way.”

    I have to confess that the name 02gb didn’t ring any bells for me, but it turns out the photographic duo, which is made up of Max von Gumppenberg and Patrick Bienert, is a pretty big fish on the German fashion scene. Looking through their portfolio this comes as no surprise; they’ve worked for the likes of Hussein Chalayan, Kostas Murkudis, and shot numerous times for Vogue. It’s their lookbook for couture master Valentino that we were seduced by however.

    Ever wondered what happens when you die? Do our souls live on in heaven, frolicking about with those of our lost loved ones? Is there a dark, black nothingness? Or do we get stuffed to the eyeballs with gems and a big shiny crown thrust on our heads until we’re all trussed up like a little skeleton Liberace?

    These photographs in the latest issue of the ultra-slick men’s fashion mag, Arena Homme+, are so incredibly perfect, never have I felt so giddy at the combination of slouched, neutral knitwear and ambiguous, colourful props.

    With a portfolio bursting with fashion, editorial and portrait photography, it’s no surprise Tung Walsh’s client list is constantly growing having shot for big-wigs including A.P.C, Dolce and Gabbana, BON and W magazine among others. Capturing a mixture of models and famous folk, his style is cool, edgy and setting the standard in achieving that originality and freshness many photographers can only imitate.

    Statues are an eternal recognition of a person or event’s impact on society – once erected they become a symbol and a part of the community forever. What interests photographer Fabrice Fouillet is when these effigies are on a monumental scale and take over towns, becoming just as exceptional at the political or religious power they’re representing.

    When these flaming barrels rolled into our consciousness, we were instantly intrigued. While it’s nothing new to see photographic documentation of strange customs and traditions (James Pearson-Howes, for instance, has captured British Folk traditions to brilliant effect), these images by Conor Beary are no less fascinating. The photographs document a 200-year-old tradition in the wonderfully-named village of Ottery Saint Mary in Devon, which sees the streets filled with fire and wild enthusiasm.

    There’s a real appetite here on the internet for old black and white photos being presented in colour, but in the main they tend to focus on historic or social themes. It’s less common to see sports photography undergoing this treatment, which is why we were so struck by the work of Gooner Frog when we came across it on Facebook.
