The Flatness is a photography project by Erin O’Keefe:
“The title of this series of photographs refers to both the material flatness of the photograph itself, as well as the perceptual flattening of the still life space. The images in this series explore the tendency of the camera to flatten pictorial space, and as a result, foster ambiguous spatial readings. The still life arrangements are comprised of painted plywood boards, physical prints of Photoshop gradient patterns, and photographs. There is a fertile tension between the compressed space of the image and the visual clues that allude to the dimensionality of the still life. The camera is the agent of uncertainty that invites seeing as both an intimate and critical exercise.”
KOKON is a conceptual fashion photography project by Stephanie Passul, in collaboration with Sara Schwarz:
“Fashion transforms the body. It stretches, clinches or broadens the body and works as a functional shell also as a consciously inserted design tool. The project is based on the analysis about fashion in the context of space and art. The possibilities to form the shape of the body was pushed to their limits. Layer to layer get the body covered and transformed, until he acts only as the plinth of the clothing. The project presents clothing as a heavy, burdensome shell of the body and degrades the body to the base for the artwork fashion. Afterwards, patterns were generated from the photos, which reflect the superficial and decorative function of fashion. Thus, clothing, was into the third dimension (sculpture) and then again in the second dimension (photography, pattern) transformed.”
Conceptual still life photography by Zachary Norman. Zachary also belongs to the very creative Everything is Collective.
Csilla Klenyánszki, whom I featured here over a year ago, was kind enough to send me word of her new project entitled Good Luck:
“Good luck” is a personal research for balance and the interpretation of it. The (simple) images of the series try to show the moment of this balance, where almost everything is perfect and still. As this moment is quite fragile, concentration but also a little bit of luck is necessary to achieve it.”
Serenely white photography by Paul Chan. Chan is also part of the greatly creative collective of photographers known as The Tremendous Family.
Becoming Wilderness is a photography project by Scandinavian duo Inka Lindergård and Niclas Holmström (a.k.a Inka & Niclas).
“Integral to their practice is the wish to consider what it is in a sunset over an ocean or the view of a mountain range that is so emotionally spellbinding and continues to fill us with awe? What is it that drives us to go out there and collect these images over and over again? And what mystical auras create the sense of awe and wonder that colours our understanding of nature? Inka & Niclas´s practice evolves around an exploration of the different components that constitutes the powerful psychological effects of different natural phenomena and landscapes.“
