People’s Choice: “Stepwell” by Oliver Klink awarded by Black and White Magazine

Exciting news! “Stepwell” photographed in India last March was awarded the People’s Choice Award by BLACK & WHITE magazine.

From the editor of the magazine:”There are only 16 awards in this category so you can be confident that we felt your work stood out in a way that deserved this special attention. Once again, congratulations!”

The December edition magazine is available at newsstands and on their website. This is a very high quality printed magazine, worth subscribing to.

Black and White magazine also selected “God’s Rays” as single image award winner. 

Travel Photography: Finding the “Moment”

The last 3 months have taken me to Mongolia, China, Bhutan, and India. Over 90,000 images ranging from the documentary snapshots to the well thought out scenes, to “I wish a particular action” would have happened.

Defining “interesting” is so subjective that it lies entirely with the eyes of the observer. To a sport’s fan, it might be capturing a “home run”, to a landscape photographer it might be “god’s rays”, to a wildlife photographer it might be a unique behavior, to a fine art photographer it might just be when the scene is at its most aesthetically balanced.

 The challenge with travel photography is that most of the time we evaluate an “interesting moment” without the bias of history. We see merely what is, and not what was previously. So how do you create stunning images? Waiting for the right time? Being able to gauge if an image is special at the point of capture?

During the various workshops I am teaching in January, I will share tips how to find “the moment”.

Oliver Klink “Consequences” Portfolio Selected as Critical Mass Top 50

The votes are in! I am excited to announce that my body of work “Consequences” was selected as the Critical Mass Top 50 for 2016. An exhibit of the Top 50 will soon be announced.

Meanwhile, you can see the full body of work here. Each image comes in three sizes (by 20″, by 30″, and by 50″), limited edition of 15, 7, 3. As a heads up, some images are almost sold out. If interested in purchasing an image, email me the title and desired size. I will let you know if image is still available.

My images are printed digitally using a special process called Piezography, with my special inkset. The Piezography print, being the first fine black & white digital process is to digital photography what the Daguerrotype was to traditional photography. It has a unique combination of surface reflection, high fidelity, and tone due to a proprietary pigment manufacturing process. The fidelity of black & white images made with this special shaded ink combined with a proprietary profiling process produce enhanced highlight and shadow details that exceed what is capable using silver-based or platinum-based traditional darkroom processes.

I am truly honored of having been selected by Photolucida as a Top 50 artists.

Until further news about the Top 50 exhibit … Thank you for your continuous support and good luck with your art collection.

Support Children with Photography: Oliver Klink Donates “Herding Instinct”

I am honored to have been invited to participate in the Annual Friends of Friends of Photography Auction, happening on October 4 in New York. The organization has been providing free healthcare to children in Laos and Cambodia for the past 20 years.

I met the founder, Kenro Izu, at one of the PhotoAlliance talks in 2009. I fell in love with his images of Bhutan. In 2016 at the FotoFest portfolio review, a good friend of the association saw my images and put me in touch with the director of Friends of Friends of Photography. They fell in love with “Herding Instinct” and featured the image on their front page of their last mailer. What an honor.

You can help this great organization by placing your bids at the auction.
