Artist Phillip Kaminiak
Panama City, Panama I 2015
Typical Panama City drought. As I hated landscape pictures (at the time) I was very happy to have all that fog disguising the panorama of the city and create something graphical.
Phillip Kaminiak’s photograph’s look is a mix of classical flash street photography of the 80ies to 90ies, with a slight sense of fashion or portrait photography. The use of flash, small rangefinder cameras, rather wide lenses, a physical closeness to his subjects and 35mm film gives the pictures something raw and glossy at the same time. This has a significant effect on the question you might have standing in front of many of his pictures: „Is it staged or is it documentary“?
