Photographer in Focus: Justine Shachar, Part 1 of ???

There’s not much out there about Justine Shachar.  She is self-taught and mostly takes photos of her three boys.  She lives in Australia and she really seems to like close-up shots where the freckles and eyes stand out.  She does some really nice shots in color and black & white.  You might notice the youngest of the boys suffers from a affliction where a few of his vertebrae are fused in the neck.  I’m glad she chooses to show all her boys in the light and doesn’t hide them from the world.

I hope you enjoy!


Lukas Roels was born in 1957 in Ghent, Belgium.  While is rarely does projects for other people, he has released at least one book; “Angels of Time”.  As you might expect, in some countries his book is very controversial and his work is frowned upon.  Even though he feels his work is similar to a statue, others disagree.  His question to you is, “Do you feel the same unease when you look at a nude statue?”

Twins: Bernie and Erick

This post features a pair of twins from Instagram. We’ve seen a couple of pictures of one or both here before, in a post featuring a photographer they’ve modeled for. I only have enough photos of these two for a single post right now, so (at least for now) I’m not planning a “part 2”.
