Human expression in photography through my eyes.

Christopher Whytal received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1998 from Radford University, with concentrations in graphic design and photography. It was there that he discovered his passion for black and white and experimental photography using a variety of different formats and mediums. An avid traveler and a proud father of two, he continues to shoot both digitally and on film to this day.

For my light painting photography, I step out and do something that is often not done: I bring parts of myself into the photograph. My intent is to show the action behind the creation of the photo, the photographer at work, along with the finished product. It also completes the scene I am trying to create. I either make the light painting tools myself or obtain them from other great resources, allowing me to push the boundaries of my work.  One of my favorites is Light Painting Brushes: https://lightpaintingbrushes.com

For my black and white photography, the expression is different and it’s a bit more obscure. From a distance, I use subject matter and people to create the scene. To me, human emotion is expressed through the act of doing, body language and movement—the gesture of someone waving down a taxi or the rush of the crowds of people in a city. Each of these gestures projects an expression that is clearly told in the photo or inspired by the imagination.  A lot of my BnW photography is shot using a Holga, a unique medium format camera that shoots 120 film. It gives an artistic and dreamy aspect to the photos you take with unexpected results such as light leaks and obscured edges of the photograph where the center is focused.  An excellent source for camera equipment and a place where you can find the Holga with a quick search is B&H.

Recently, I experimented with the blending of my two photography focuses: light painting and black and white. In the self-portrait, included in this issue, I am conveying two different subtle human emotions with the two different styles of photography, one on either side. 

What are some techniques that have helped you capture the emotion you want? I’d like to share 3 tips that have helped me utilize human expression. 

  1. Think about what characteristics of the emotion connect with you and how you can bring that into your work. 
  2. Set the scene of the photograph, whether it be staged with lighting and props or in the moment using composition and available subject matter. 
  3. Capture your ideas in a journal and think of ways to push your work in new directions and further the craft. 

Success in the world of art and expression can be a nebulous and difficult thing to measure. However, if you can capture the feeling you want to convey in the photograph and project that upon the viewer, then that is certainly a rousing success!

作品について
 近年はダンサーなどの身体表現を行う方をモデルに作品を撮ることが多いです。人体の造形物としての美しさは興味が尽きないし、顔だけでなく手や脚などにも様々な表情が有ると思っています。
スタジオでモデルさんと話し合いながら光を操り美しい絵を撮ること、そして作品を見てくれた人を触発する作品を撮り続けたいと思っています。

上田バロン 

FR/LAME MONGER代表

イラストレーター、アートディレクター、アーティスト、AI BEARデザイナー

ボクは日本の大阪をベースに活動するイラストレーター。様々なメディアや広告、プロジェクトを通し、キャリアは20年を超える。自分のスタイルを重んじて描き続けた世界は、過去にマクドナルドやグーグル、ホンダ、コナミ、布袋寅泰、川谷絵音とのプロジェクトや、スターウォーズやマーベル、デビルマンなどとコラボレーションするなど、デジタルツールの中でも非常にシンプルなツールを使いながらも、常に無限の可能性に挑戦し描き続けている。

一昨年のある日、玄光社から声がかかり、念願だった自身初作品集が刊行された。ボクは今まで世界の中の小さな日本の中で自分の表現を磨き続けてきましたが、この作品集を出版した時に1つの願いを込めた。それは世界のステージでまだ自分を知らない多くの人々に自分を知ってもらいたい、そして自身が信じるこの表現を伝えたいと。これをきっかけに作品を通して世界の人々と新しい価値を作り上げたいとより強く思うようになった。タイミングよくその後すぐにタイから1つのプロジェクトに招待され、巨大な壁画を描き残した。今もその壁画を見た旅行客や現地のアートファンからコンタクトが来る。とてもエキサイティングなことだ。

このマガジンのために再編集した「Wrath」という作品は怒れる軍神アレスを描いた作品。彼女のような力の限り戦い続ける意志の強さやタフさを纏って、ボクはこれからも世界の誰かのために描き続けていきたいと思う。

EURECAの理念 それは『美』『健康』『豊かさ』の共存

EURECAでは「美」「健康」「豊かさ」を手に入れたいと願うすべての女性たちを応援しています。女性として生まれたからには、いつまでも美しくありたいと願うのは当然のこと。「若さ」という表面的な美しさに終わりがきても、本当の意味での「心の美しさ」は年齢や人生経験を重ねるごとに育まれ、身に付いていく奥深いものだと思います。

美しさには健康が伴わなければ、豊かな人生は送れません。私は、33歳で卵巣癌を告知されました。周囲や医師に手術を強く勧められても受け入れず、自分の心と1カ月徹底的に闘うことに決めました。存分に闘い続けて見えたのは『生きているだけでいい』というシンプルな考えでした。

今生きている、この瞬間の幸せに感謝。

そう思えたら、病気ともいいお付き合いができるのでは?と。

「心の置き方」ひとつで、充分に人生を楽しめることを身を以て体験したのです。

その後、40歳と44歳で子宮頸癌の告知。天はまだ私に闘えというのか…とうなだれましたが心をポジティブに保った結果、闘いに勝利したのです。体の健康は、まず「心の健康」が重要だと痛感したのです。

そんな時、モロッコに引き寄せられ、訪れると長期間、雨の降らない荒野に点々と育つアルガンの樹。過酷な環境下でも地中で根を長く伸ばし、僅かな水分を摂り枯れることなく実を付ける。

その逞しい姿に感銘を受けたのです。まさにモロッコの黄金に他ならないのです。

その実から取れるアルガンオイルの素晴らしさは計り知れなく、身体のケアだけでなく雇用をも生み、人々に恵みを与えるのです。

そんな自然の素晴らしさも伝えていきたい。

女性が社会で活躍するためには「礼節と愛嬌」が欠かせません。決して媚びへつらうことではなく相手を敬い、感謝し、笑顔でいることを心がければ、周囲も社会も発展していくと信じています。

人生を謳歌しながら、自分の能力を存分に発揮する大切なスキルを身につけられる      

こうしたステージを創っていきたいとEURECAは願います。

In 2021, Ricky is celebrating 10 years of Rebel-utionary success with his new compilation album release, The Royal Collection. Curated from a decade of club mixes and powerful vocals, The Royal Collection highlights Rebel’s versatility as an artist, singer-songwriter, and producer. Plus, the album features collaborations with platinum selling producer Gary Miller (David Bowie, Katie Perry, Cher, Kylie Minogue) and Adam Lambert’s ex-guitarist Tommy Joe Ratliff. Rebel’s music has provided the beat to dance clubs around the world. COVID-19 has not slowed Ricky Rebel down one bit. In addition to releasing The Royal Collection, Rebel also launched a digital fitness video series called “Ricky Rebel Fitness” and has continued to tour in states that have allowed shows.

About Ricky Rebel

www.RickyRebelRocks.com

THEN:

In 1997, recording artist Ricky G. burst on the music scene as the lead vocalist of No Authority who toured with 98 Degrees, Destiny’s Child, Aaron Carter, Ashlee and Jessica Simpson among others.  Rodney Jerkins (Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears) produced their first album, “Keep On”, and Michael Jackson signed the band to his own MJJ Music custom-label at Sony.  In 2000, they signed with Madonna’s Maverick label to release their namesake album.  The album reached #18 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart.  Their signature hit, “Can I Get Your Number” peaked at #33 on the Billboard Top 40 chart while “I’m Telling You This” appeared on “The Rugrats in Paris” soundtrack.  The band then embarked on tour with Britney Spears.  Following the break-up of No Authority, Ricky became the lead vocalist of Harlow from 2004-2009 during which time he released “Unstoppable” (2005), mixed and engineered by Jay Baumgardner at NRG Studios and produced by Grammy-winning producer Randy Cantor (Ricky Martin).

Ricky also leant his voice to films including “Apollo 13” starring Tom Hanks, “Anywhere But Here” starring Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman and the “Anastasia” soundtrack. In addition, he appeared on episodes of “American Dreams”, “Boston Public”, “Audrina” (Vh1) and starred in Debbie Allen’s ballet, “Pepito’s Story”, which opened at the Kennedy Center in New York City.

​​

​​NOW:

Ricky G. became Ricky Rebel and embarked on a solo career after My Chemical Romance invited him to co-star in their “NA NA NA” and “Sing” videos.  In 2012, he won the Artist of the Year award at the RAWards and released his “Manipulator” album featuring the hits “Geisha Dance”, “Get It On”, “You Need a Woman” and the title track.  MTV’s “Good Vibes” also featured music from the album.  In 2013, “Geisha Dance” spent ten weeks on the Mediabase Chart, the chart that powers “On Air with Ryan Seacrest”.

In 2014, Ricky released “The Blue Album” mixed by Claudio Cueni (JLo) with remixes by world-renowned DJs Hector Fonseca (Over 20 Billboard number-one hits for artists including Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rihanna), Casey Alva (Erika Jayne) and Tommy Love. His “Boys & Sometimes Girls” hit from “The Blue Album” reached #28 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.

In 2017, Ricky released “The New Alpha”, his follow-up album to “The Blue Album” featuring his Billboard Top 40 single “If You Were My Baby (Remixes)”, released on Audio4Play Records. The track includes remixes from world-renowned DJs Tommie Sunshine (Godfather of EDM) and Hector Fonseca.

Louder Than War, a leading UK music magazine, placed “The New Alpha” at #67 on their coveted Top 75 Albums of 2017 list and the Huff Post dubbed the album “explosive and compelling.” 

Ricky took “The New Alpha” on the road with performances at the South By Southwest Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, as well as a concert series in the UK and a performance at the Cannes Film Festival, Cinemoi Fashion Charity Concert in Cannes, France, to raise money for orphaned children.  He also co-headlined “The Artist One Tour” with JAX (“American Idol”) and YouTube star Carl Chaze and performed with Alisan Porter, winner of “The Voice” (Season 10), at the American Influencer Awards.

Between 2015 and 2017, Ricky played with GRAMMY-nominated and GRAMMY-winning artists Kesha, Mya, Switchfoot, Patti Labelle, Colbie Caillat and Toby Keith as well as selected tour dates with O-Town, Blood On The Dance Floor and appearances at Matinee Las Vegas and Matinee San Diego.

In 2018, he performed at New York Pride on the Univision TV Network float during the annual parade that drew an estimated 50,000 fans with special guests including Lady Gaga. Ricky would go on to bring “The New Alpha” Summer Pride Concert Series to festivals in Los Angeles, San Diego and New Jersey.

“The New Alpha” album would also be considered by the GRAMMY Foundation for a GRAMMY Nomination and his hit “Boys & Sometimes Girls” was featured in the Facebook original series, “Queen America”, starring Catherine Zeta Jones.

The LOVELOUD Foundation invited Ricky and other celebrity guests to attend the LOVELOUD Festival, with headliners Imagine Dragons, at the Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, UT.

Ricky would also begin to design the “Ricky Rebel Renaissance” collection by Astrophytum, a high-end custom jewelry line.

2019 began with a global buzz when “The New Alpha” music video was an official selection at the New Renaissance Film Festival in Amsterdam for best music video.

The next month, he was back in the USA to appear on the red carpet at the GRAMMY Awards followed by an appearance the next morning on FOX & Friends. ELLE magazine also named Ricky, as well as David Bowie and Madonna, to their Most Outrageous GRAMMYs Outfits in History list.

Following the GRAMMYs, Ricky toured Japan for the “Champion” concert series including the Global Village Festival in Fukuoka. In Oita, Japan, a tea ceremony was held in his honor with Master Watanabe Tsutomu, the top tea master in Japan.

When he returned to the USA, Ricky was invited to perform during the #DemandFreeSpeech Rally in front of the White House in Washington DC and the American Priority Festival at the Trump Doral in Miami with featured speakers including Donald Trump, Jr., and Sarah Sanders.

As 2020 draws to a close, Ricky is back in the studio in Los Angeles with GRAMMY-nominated producer and songwriter Gary Miller (David Bowie, Katie Perry, Cher, Kylie Minogue).

In addition, he is a fashion contributor to Us Weekly, supported by MAC cosmetics and signed to Revry TV the world’s first LGBTQ streaming platform. His Revry Original Documentary ‘”Rebels Only” was also nominated for Best Music Documentary at the Out Web Fest Awards.
