Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool and feature it. Right here. Elias Carlson is a 29-year old photographer and graphic designer (by day) living in Seattle. Currently working on a photo book with Tim Gatto of Bit by Zeus, Elias is compiling work from some of their favorite photographers. The photo above was taken in Priest Lake, Idaho, which according to Elias, is an insanely clear, beautiful lake. Elias had his brother swim for him while he tested out the "waterproof to 10 feet" claim on his Nikon Action Touch. Clearly the camera worked. Elias' favorite cameras of choice are the Mamiya 645 1000s, Canon A-1, Olympus OM-1n, Minolta Autocord, and the Leica III. Not a bad collection of gear. If you would like to see more of Elias' work, please take a look at his Flickr, his Tumblr and personal blog. Want to be featured on hearty’s Saturday Selection?

Léonie Hampton gets into people’s heads, and documents it for all to see Since she was six years old, London-based photographer, Léonie Hampton has been perfecting her craft. Stemming from a fascination with how people relate to each other within family structures, she began documenting the lives of different families in Rome, London, Cuba, Los Angeles and France. After capturing private moments of joy, tenderness and anger, she decided to delve into her own family life. In 2007, she worked alongside her mother who had struggled with OCD for years and had an overwhelming collection of personal artifacts. Léonie photographed the process of clearing out boxes, sorting through years of memories and all the emotional anguish that went along with it. At the end of the experience, she put together a book titled, In the Shadow of Things. The book was released last March and has since received a sizeable amount of media attention. Taking photos from her book, as well as older photos from the families she had visited over the years, Léonie’s new exhibit, “Anger, Tenderness and Joy” opened in September at the Kahmann Gallery in Amsterdam. Her work will be on display until November 17. Not in Amsterdam? See more of Léonie Hampton's photography below.

Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool to be featured on hearty. Keith McArthur is not your average young photographer. Now a 28-year-old photographer, living in Michigan, Keith's interest in photography first started in high school. Keith went on to go to university for photojournalism, but left early to join the military as a photographer, where he was a still photographer and photo-scientist for a huge military aerial surveillance lab. Keith's military experience gave him unique technical expertise, and an education very few people typically receive in art school. After returning from duty, Keith started working in the field doing doing full time medical and commercial photography for a large Detroit hospital system. He has been doing that since, spending his days between operating rooms and studio and location shoots. The boy in the photo is Keith's son, Maverick. Keith says he doesn't really take a lot of pictures but always carries a camera on him just in case. That camera is usually a Contax G2, however he also uses a Contax T2, Yashica T4, or Nikon F3. Keith truly loves film, especially the eager trips to the lab when he finishes a roll. Check out Keith's Flickr and website to see more of his work.
