I like the experimental edge to Michael Gelinas’ photography – he’s got an imaginative way of playing with saturation and overlays, often creating great surreal portraits.
Randy Martin was featured here a long time back and since has added many great pictures to his portfolio – all seemingly within the context of travels, although one can never be sure if photographers take pictures while travelling or travel in order to take pictures.
Joanna’s style of photography has that old, dusty and almost ghostly feel to it. I love the vintage tint of these photos and especially the dark atmosphere flowing through them – like scenes from an eerie old silent film.
Beautiful and picturesque photography by Vera Biryukova.
I find that Maurizio’s photography goes well with several of this last week’s posts – such as photography by Sasha Kurmaz, David Boyson Cooper or Toby Price. Although their photography differs in many ways, there is a common thread in terms of the unprocessed and rather raw aesthetic of their photography.
As with many photography aesthetics these days, this raw-style does not lack in its imitators. The Vice-like shooting style has become common-place across the Tumblr platform and floods most Flickrstreams these days. All this does for someone like me is make it more time-consuming to sift through all the crap, but then again all the more rewarding when I come across greatly skilled photographers.
Maurizio is also part of the team behind Disturber Magazine – a zine well worth checking out.
Ukrainian photographer Sasha Kurmaz has a very raw style of picture-taking. It seems rather uncut (much like his labyrinthic portfolio-website) and very experimental – while often capturing great stills of unorthodox body-positioning.
You might have seen the amazing viral video Doll Face directed by Andrew Huang – but have you seen his most recent short film Solipsist? if not, you are missing out on something absolutely mind-boggling.
There really aren’t many words one might find to describe the journey Andrew Huang takes the viewer on through this video – and in fact I’m having a hard time finding anything he’s personally said about the project. Maybe it’s better left that way. There is however a great making-of video, that I posted along with the original.
