Getty Images is showcasing its New Photographers 2006: "Finally, we arrived at the magic number of 31 photographers. Obviously our magic 31 could have been 30 or 32 or your own magic number."
The 'New Photographers 2006' had been presented earlier (linked photo by Anoush Abrar, one of the 31 new photographers) on June 24 at the Cannes Lions 2005, 52nd International Advertising Festival, June 19-25, 2005, curated by Getty Images:
Today, more than ever, photography is at the heart of advertising. With an overcrowded marketplace and constant consumer shifts in taste and style, creatives face a continual challenge to say something new. Fresh thinking and dynamic, inspiring photography is the lifeblood of its development. (Link)
Totally about 150 photographs. Some examples:
- Albrecht Tübke (Image 1); btw: Albrecht lives in Schwerin, not "Scwherin"
- Pieter Hugo (Image 5); "a self-taught photographer"
- Tanit Plana (Image 4)
- Li Wei (Image 4); "strange fantasies such as a head flying solo around Beijing or bodies catapulted into car windows"
- Kevin Cooley (Image 5)
- Thirza Schaap (Image 5)
Sorry, no deep-linking to selected images possible.
