Andreas Laszlo Konrath
Various Assignments
Andreas Laszlo Konrath
Fall 2105 / Spring 2016


Andres Laszlo Konrath (ALK) is a busy character. He’s been coming around LTI/Lightside since the fall of 2015 and has run a good bit of editorial shooting through the lab in that short time.


It’s one thing for us to report here on what he’s up to, like his published assignments for The New Yorker, W, Fast Company, Playboy, Marie Claire and more. Yet it would be quite another altogether to tell you how he does it  — meaning, the unique look of say, his portrait of star chef, Marcus Samuelsson below … we think it’s fair to say he’d have to kill us if we did.


That said, it’s refreshing to note that in an age of #anytingispossible digital manipulation. ALK turns the tables back to old school skill and and achieves his signature results not with the hand of PhotoShop at all … and that’s as far as we’re going to go here.


Here’s a small sample of some recently published assignments:

Deal With It — Donald Trump Cover
Martin Schoeller, photographer
TIME Magazine
August 20, 2015

From the TIME website: Lightbox — Behind the Photos by Olivier Laurent



Martin Schoeller: Donald Trump, cover August 20, 2015



When Martin Schoeller scrolled through the 28 close-up portraits he had taken of Donald Trump, he was struck to see that they were all identical. “Every frame was the same,” Schoeller says. “Mr. Trump knows exactly how he looks, and he strikes one pose and doesn’t move.”

It wasn’t the first time that Schoeller, an award-winning portrait photographer and frequent TIME contributor, had worked with Trump. They first met in 2004 for a Fortune cover article, so he knew what to expect when he was asked to photograph the frontrunner in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries for this week’s magazine cover.

“He’s very difficult to photograph,” says Schoeller. “If you ask him to look up a little bit, he says no or he just doesn’t do it. He literally has one angle. If I ask him to smile, he puts on a big grin and then he goes back to his Zoolander ‘blue steel’ look. And the ‘blue steel’ stays for as ever long as it takes to get the photograph.”

When Every Day is Memorial Day
Andrew Lichtenstein, Photographer
New York Times Lens Blog
May 22



Andrew Lichtenstein: Never Coming Home


The New York Times published a series of photographs by Andrew Lichtenstein over the Memorial Day weekend. They called the entry on the Lens Blog When Every Day is Memorial Day. Andrew refers to the series on his website as Never Coming Home.


Whatever you want to call it, the photographs of stateside military funerals are a stark reminder of what the Memorial Day Holiday is all about — and part of the purpose of those pictures was to highlight the disconnect often associated with such holidays: sales banner festooned new car lots, crowded beaches and in general, a working populace just looking for a little deserved time off.


It’s one of those odd paradoxes that comes with being a world dominating super power.


We’ve been processing film for Andrew for years and years. You can see the New York Times entry here and learn more about his work here.
