Slovakian photographer Jan Durina’s aesthetic is incredibly hard to define; each photograph has a sensual and mysterious narrative hidden in the raw and candid manner in which the pictures are taken. There’s no depth of field or color and contrast adjustments here. Instead, gentle and sometimes tormented-looking beings intertwine, fly and blend into the dark forestry.
Here’s an insightful and poetic interview about Jan’s work.
Strength in Disorder is a portrait photography project by Olivia Johnston focusing on women who suffer from eating disorders. The photobook is available in print or for free in digital format on magcloud.
”When I was quite young, a women very close to me suffered from an eating disorder. My understanding was limited at the time, and as a result, I grew up wondering about these diseases. When I began this project, I expected to learn very much from the women I photographed, and intellectually I have; I now know much more about eating disorders than ever before. However, since getting to know the beautiful, confident, captivating, intelligent women in this book, the disease makes less sense than ever. How and why does this happen to our girls and women?”
Nude self-portrait photography by Jana Maré:
“Before each photo, I get naked and run in front of camera to perform. Exploring performance in front of camera using the artist’s body. Posing sometimes lifeless and other times sculptural. The body exposed in open natural light, the work explores the psychology of the home left empty, forgotten.”
