Cathode-Ray-Tube televisions being switched off

Alison Zavos Contributor

By Alison Zavos in New Photography on Thursday 9 February 2012

Stephan Tillmans is a Berlin-based photographer. He writes: ‘The Luminant Point Arrays show cathode-ray-tube televisions being switched off. The television picture breaks down and creates a structure of light. The images open up a dialogue between the relationship of abstraction and concretion in photography as the breakdown of the television picture describes the breakdown of external reference. The result is self-referential, concrete photography’. [via Feature Shoot]

Hauntingly beautiful underwater photography

Alison Zavos Contributor

By Alison Zavos in New Photography on Thursday 19 January 2012

Claire Oring is a 22 year-old conceptual photographer based in Los Angeles. Of her untitled underwater series, she writes: ‘I approached this underwater series equipped with an underwater SLR camerapac. All the photos were either taken with a birds eye view of my models floating on the water surface or underwater. It was a grand experiment. The main objective was to observe the properties of water. The way it behaves under different conditions, the way different materials adapt to it, the way light reacts beneath it, the way it filters out certain colors. I hoped a combination of that and weightless gesture would give the illusion of flying or floating in an imaginary daydream-like world’.

By Alison Zavos in New Photography on Tuesday 17 January 2012
