Olivera Stegmann is a Swiss photographer and also the winner of AAP Magazine #16 Shadows with his project 'Circus Noir'. We asked him a few questions about his life and work.
Platinum by William Klein
FIFTY ONE TOO is pleased to present a series of 9 platinum prints by the influential American photographer, filmmaker, graphic designer and painter William Klein (born in 1928 in the US, lives and works in Paris, France). The exhibition features some of the most well known images that this 'enfant terrible of photography' made in commission for Vogue magazine in the 1950s and 60s and that are now considered a milestone in fashion photography. The platinum printing process - known for its exceptional quality, durability and beauty - gives these legendary photographs an unprecedented depth, sharpness and tonal range, spectacular to discover in person.

World Around by Joseph Rafferty
Showing us things in our psyche - my project, World Around, is constructed within my home during this global pandemic, using my own children as case study subjects. The narrative is built from my own parental reality, something with uncertain outcome, the anxiety and apprehension of navigating through this invisible thing, coronavirus. This body of work explores the terrifying uncertainty of raising children with my partner, a clinical psychologist, through the strange times of COVID-19.
Best Photo Contests of May 2021
Photography contests can give professional and amateurs photographers alike unique opportunities to get exposure, sell their work or earn cash prizes.

They are often an excellent way to share your project with a wider audience, reach curators, collectors, and photography lovers alike but also the members of the jury who can, if interested, propel your career to the next level.

Websites and social media profiles are usually not enough to stand out from the crowd. But which photo competition is right for you? It is sometimes hard for photographers to choose between photo contests. So which ones are interesting and can give you the special boost you are looking?

All About Photo has selected the best photo contests, photography competitions and call for entries. This list of international photo competitions and photo contests is thoroughly curated to help photographers find their next creative breakthrough and keep up with all the current opportunities to gain exposure. Exhibition, cash prize, publication... find the photo contest that is right for you. So what are the best photo contests worth entering this month of May 2021?
The Persistence of Family by Diana Cheren Nygren
During the isolation resulting from the pandemic, family has taken on a new centrality. Our connections to our ancestors and our descendants often feel stronger than connections to those around us. I often wish my children knew my grandparents. These are portraits of my children as the product of a history of lives lived and intertwined, each effecting and shaping the other.
Cruise Night by Kristin Bedford
Kristin Bedford's new photo book Cruise Night pulls back the curtain on LA's Mexican American lowrider car culture, aiming to tackle the misconceptions and celebrate the uniqueness of this marginalized community. Bedford is the first woman to create an original large-scale body of work about this American movement.
Vivian Maier - Stephan Vanfleteren: Capturing Life
Gallery FIFTY ONE will surprise its visitors with an unusual pairing of two master photographers: Vivian Maier (USA, 1926-2009) and Stephan Vanfleteren (Belgium, 1969). For this exhibition, Vanfleteren will select some images from his diverse oeuvre as a reflection on the work of Vivian Maier. The result: a surprising confrontation between two photographers of a very different place and time, that have one thing in common: the love for the street and all its unpredictability.
Best Modern Photographers of May 2021
What better way to improve your own work than to be inspired by others? I am absolutely convinced that discovering new portfolios on a regular basis helps educate your eye and have a better understanding of the possibilities that photography offers. Contemplating amazing images, in addition to being a pleasure, is a very good way to develop your 'photographic eye', that little extra thing that will make your photos stand out. Each month we continue to discover incredible work from photographers that live and travel all around the world. Here is a selection of some incredible images of modern photographers for this month of May2021 you can get some creative inspiration from.
