Hiroji Kubota. China. Tianjin. Female Welders in Dockyard. As with other shipyards, the majority of the welders are women. 1982.

Although Kubota has shot extensively in America and often works in black and white, it's his color photographs of Asia that really caught my attention.

It is interesting how many of the photos you post are by people who are so unlike me that they go ahead and take the picture even when not everything is perfectly in place.

Thus, they get photos that I would sigh over in defeat, and believe I could have gotten if only those banners weren't there, or if the light was better, and so forth.

BTW, we need to get one of your featured photographers to post in your thread, now.

At first glance I thought that first Kubota with Kim Il Sung is black and white. Then I noticed the color! And then I wondered if Kubota noticed the same thing and that's why he took the photo.

Another, less reproduced perspective on the Hindenburg explosion, and one that gives a grander sense of the scale and enormity of the disaster.

I've seen that before, but, as you say, less reproduced. Maybe only once or twice before.

The thing about that photo is that the figures are so tiny compared to the dirigible. But only a few seconds' thought makes you realize that the tiny figures are a lot closer to the lens than the dying airship. If the men were just beneath it, not only would they be in mortal danger, but they would be tiny blips in the frame. And that makes you realize just how large the Hindenberg's hydrogen envelope was. Two of the men in the photo are between the running men near the camera and the Hindenberg in the background, and they are significantly smaller in the frame.

Have you seen the MythBusters episode where they checked out a theory that it was the coating with which the envelope was painted that caused the fire to burn so swiftly?

What do you say about a shot like this? You can hardly even discuss photographic merit because the magic of the shot lies in the confluence of circumstances; the photographer is just the conduit through which we receive it. Sure, Bendiksen's photographic prowess helped him capture an ideal shot, but he was graced with this moment. It's otherworldly, like something out of a Tarkovsky film. One can only sit and wonder over the fact that this actually happened.

Bendiksen discusses the shot in this Behind the Picture video.
