McLemore Photography

Photography is a primary method of engaging place. While traveling, I feel a compulsion to constantly carry my camera.
Nothing seems more stimulating than leaving the street map in my bag and simply wandering...allowing the possibility for
spontaneous discoveries.

Photographers and photo projects:

McCurry afghan girl Steve McCurry: One of the world's leading photographers concentrating on the landscapes and cultures of South and Southeast Asia.
His book South Southeast from 2000 is truly moving. McCurry is most famous for an enormously powerful portrait of an Afghan girl
originally placed on National Geographic's June 1985 cover. He rediscovered the girl in 2002, fully matured and with a family, on a
subsequent trip to Afghanistan. Years of strife and hard labor are clearly recognizable on her face. Another of McCurry's books
entirely focuses on the Monsoons of India, an annual and jubliant event I was fortunate to recently experience...and endure.



Annie Griffiths Belt: Another National Geographic contributer whose extraordinary and prolific carrer has taken him to Egypt,
China, and the Vatican.





Peshawar, Pakistan 1984 McCurry



Salgado woman
Sabastiao Salgado: A truly remarkable photographer originally from Brazil who travels worldwide documenting
the migrations and desperations of common workers. Salgado can definitely be considered an honorific
geographer, given his diverse and tireless work on the globe's megacities, persecuted refugees, and indigenous
cultures. Look for layouts of his trademark black and white photos in Rolling Stone magazine.





Nachtwey time


Sasbastiao Salgado


James Nachtwey: A contract photographer for TIME magazine since 1984 and a central member of the Magnum photo agency.




Lange migrant mother




The Family of Man: Originally an exhibit of photos collected by Edward Steichen and presented at the Museum of Modern Art
in
New Y
ork City in 1955 and subsequently collated into a book. The selection of powerful images continue to pack a punch even
today. Few, if any, achievements better depict the human experience from heights of joy and celebration to depths of war and
privation.





Dorothea Lange



National Geographic Photocamp: Annual effort to give high school students from underprivileged areas an opportunity to
photograph their community.
The University of Miami School of Communication sponsored a few camps in South Florida and Mexico.


Briski kolkata

Kids with Ca
meras: Non-profit organization that teaches the art of photography to marginalized children in
communities around the world.
