We’re thrilled to announce the 2018 #AdobeRisingStars, a diverse group of photographers from all over the globe!
Photo by @skipwithgrace for #AdobeRisingStars || I’m thrilled to share some of my work as part of my Rising Stars takeover! This first photograph was taken at the world’s largest salt flat, Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni – a prehistoric lake that dried up and developed landscapes consisting of bright white salt and cacti-studded islands. The rainy season floods certain parts of the lake, and the result is an enormous mirror that you can walk on! The real magic comes at night when the stars light up and reflect upon the water beneath you. It was truly a special moment that I will remember forever. ✨

Photo by @sarahblesener for #AdobeRisingStars || The last photo of my takeover is from an assignment for the New York Times – a behind-the-scenes look while Christine Shevchenko of the American Ballet Theater takes a final bow after her debut performance as Kitri in Don Quixote at the Metropolitan Opera. Alban Lendorf plays the role of Basilio, her character’s love interest. Thanks for joining me this week!

Photo by @sarahblesener for #AdobeRisingStars || This image is from a project in which I explore themes around the interplay of statehood and adolescent identity in the United States. Elizabeth Nelson, 17, waits in a Home Depot parking lot in Omaha, Nebraska after watching her high school football team lose in its first game. She is waiting for her friends to arrive and together, they will spend the evening at Sonic (their favorite hangout spot). Nelson enlisted in the army the summer before her senior year of high school. She will ship out to basic training three days after she graduates.

Photo by @sarahblesener for #AdobeRisingStars || In this photo, Russian students rest behind the scenes of an “Inspection of Singing and Marching” competition. The event was held at the gymnasium of School #6 for students in the Dmitrov region, a suburb of Moscow. This image was a part of my long-term project documenting patriotic education in Russia and this particular moment captures these students in candid laughter.

Photo by @sarahblesener for #AdobeRisingStars || I want to introduce you to Curtis, Kate, and Jude. Here, the siblings lay in their backyard in Watford, North Dakota. When the sun begins to set in the distance, the flares of oil rigs dance in the orange sky. Western North Dakota attracted families from across the nation during the recent oil boom. Watford, like other rural towns in the region, is now facing unemployment and overdevelopment since the decline of the oil industry.

Photo by @sarahblesener for #AdobeRisingStars || For the first image in my takeover, I wanted to share this photo from a long-term project documenting patriotic education in Russia and looking at the ways in which nations pass down traditions and beliefs to younger generations. Students dress in outfits reenacting Soviet Union soldiers during WWII as part of their education at the Historical-War Camp in Borodino, Russia. Borodino is famous for a battle fought on September 7, 1812, the deadliest day of the Napoleonic Wars. As you’ll see throughout the week, I like to focus on photographing youth and how they experience and perceive social issues.

Photo by @gabriella_achadinha_the_xvi for #AdobeRisingStars || For the last photograph of my takeover, I wanted to share my favorite. It may be grainy (shot on 35mm in low light with admittedly not the best film stock) but the emotion I felt when I took it is incomparable to any other street photography experience I’ve had. On a summer’s evening in Barcelona, I went to the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc for their waterworks and lighting display. It was a somewhat despondent time for me, I felt extremely lonely. The Fountain was surrounded by humans on their phones and, in my then mindspace, I just wanted to leave. As I was heading out, I noticed a woman standing alone to the side. She radiated this pure tranquility, in a moment of contemplation, strong and content. This photograph’s title, “Saudades in Catalonia” means melancholy, a feeling of longing and nostalgia. I always get saudades when I look at this photograph, it was the turning point in teaching me the virtue of solitude and contemplation. Thanks for following my takeover this week!
