Irene Kung, Switzerland, 1958, started her career as a painter and with success, but it has only been in the last several years that she has fully concentrated on photography. Her images are dark and isolate the objects or subjects she photographs. She has photographed architecture in several cities in Europe and in New York, but she manages to capture a detailed look that the human eye will not perceive. Next to photographing architecture she has also made pictures of animals, trees and mountains. The following images come from the series Italy, Trees and Animals.
The target of this website is embedded in its name; to post active image-makers until we reach 500 photographers. The photographers can be from any discipline within the photographic range, but they have to be worth looking at and have a certain level of quality. When we get to number 500, we will have a deep database of great photographers.
500 photographers is done by Pieter Wisse, a photographer himself based in Rotterdam, NL. For three years (2009-2012) he was the founder and owner of Four Eyes Photography & Art, a gallery and bookstore based in his hometown that also released Four Eyes Photography Magazine.
Once this website reaches photographer #500 it will be finished and done. It will then only be here with the function of being an archive of amazing photographers of the 21st century.
