September 5, 2007 CameraArts Preview Portfolios

The CameraArts Preview Portfolios have another three additions! Many of the photographers featured in this section will be published in future issues of CameraArts Magazine. Tell us your thoughts by leaving a comment below the fold. Your comments might make it into the print edition, along with some of these great photographers.

Margaret Kauffmann has assembled a series, "Prayer Images," that is truly unique. Created for her brother, who was recently diagnosed with cancer, Kauffmann has interposed
black marks, or "tumors," of liquid emulsion, alongside landscapes of meditative healing. Jon Kolkin presents a series of natural "Tide Pool" images, and explores the details and subtleties of light and form to be found in any setting, no matter how inconspicuous. In "Caribbean Dreaming," Stuart McCallum captures white and blue abstractions in an unlikely place: a cruise ship in the East Caribbean.

I love all of the work you have displayed- but I especially love the work of Stuart McCallum- it brings me back to moments of peace and tranquility that I have experienced on board ships at sea.

Margaret Kauffmann's photographs are simply beautiful, and with such a powerful meaning behind them. I just love them all.

I remember the Kauffmann images as central to my study of "out of the box" photography; they have greatly influenced my ideas about what constitutes photographic imagery, and the ways in which the process can be used. The prayer images are so compelling and powerul.

I love MARGARET KAUFFMANN'S Bradford-on-avon--the brush strokes continue the forms of the photographic image and turn the composition into a bird-like abstraction.
all of her images are really beautiful.

margaret kaufmann's work touches me with its was of simultaneously evoking cosmic depth and breath-close intimacy -- just as prayer in the best sense can do. I hope to see more of her work

I am always so struck by the stunning composition in Margaret Kauffmann's images. The photographs are at the same time peaceful and evocative. They stop me- and make me reflect. The images remain in my mind even when the photograph is not in front of me. Margaret Kauffmann is a very gifted photograher and artist.

There have been very few pieces of art work that have really stopped me, something that puts the brain on hold and you just feel. Your Spanish Moss image did just that. I'm not sure why but it just about brought tears to my eyes.

Margaret Kauffmann's photographs are lyrical and poetic! I love the emotional content, the dramatic tension between her fixed forms and the raw hand-painted swirls and strokes, and her apparent Japanese sensibility. Her images have the spontaneity of calligraphy, the rough expression of an abstract expressionaist painting, and the delicacy and complexity of something almost scientific. Most of all they are evocative of something deeply felt!

I saw the pictures buy Tadeusz Dabrowski and I'm really impressed. Especially I enjoy the photo of this old man in the fog. Congratulations!

I found Margaret Kauffman's prayer images profound and beautiful. The contrast of meditative imagery with the stark, efficient calligraphic darkness speaks volumes about quiet struggle.
