Archie Burnett, Bravo La Fortune, R, Barbara Tucker and Willi Ninja — Photographed by Andrew Eccles

"This is a portrait of Vogueing greats Archie Burnett, Bravo La Fortune, Barbara Tucker and Willi Ninja—taken by Andrew Eccles. Whenever I come across this iconic photograph, I'm reminded of the following words from bell hooks: .
'Once upon a time black male “cool” was...defined by individual black males daring to self-define rather than be defined by others.'"

"I am obsessed with this Robert Rauschenberg photo of John Cage. It's called Untitled (John Cage, Black Mountain) from 1952. Things I obsess over: the whole Black Mountain thing generally, John Cage!, the fact Cage is sitting in the Model A Ford that Rauschenberg and he made the amazing Automobile Tire Print work in '53, that enigmatic/determined look on his face, and THOSE CAR DOOR HANDLES."

"I adore this image, from the sharp hair cut, to her glowing nails, to the colour scheme. I love that she's turning away from the camera but the feelings of defiance and beauty are still coming through. "

Candy Cigarette by Sally Mann

"The mark of a good portrait is some sense of getting under the skin of who the subject really is, and you can't manufacture the kind of piercing stare that you see in Sally Mann's portraits of her children."

Youth Unemployment, 1981, Tish Murtha"

"Tish Murtha's (@tishmurtha) photos of unemployed youth in North East England during the Thatcher years provoked a debate in Parliament, raising awareness of the reality of the lives of the teens she met. Documentary photography at it's most powerful - able to enact change.
.
Her daughter Ella recently ran a successful campaign to fund a book of her photographs, also titled Youth Unemployment. "
