By Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine in New Photography on Friday 9 March 2012

Normally family photos brush over the tough stuff. Yet, Katrin Koenning’s ongoing series, Near, propels the intimacy of a family album into the corners of love, death and inconsequential moments. Koenning’s sharing of this trove and the trust within the scenes mark these images as exquisite.

Situational photography by Zhang Xiao

By Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine in New Photography on Thursday 8 March 2012

Zhang Xiao’s photographs are steeped in the physicality of our interaction with the world. The people in his photos fluidly and intuitively react to situations and Xiao is similarly synched in as he reflexively shoots.

Michael Meneghetti’s short video: Rainbow Vixen

Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine Reader Find

By Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine in Video on Saturday 3 March 2012

Carpentry meets a parrot meets bondage in Michael Meneghetti’s Rainbow Vixen. In a performance of fallible heroism, he strenuously clambers and shamelessly sprawls his feathered way through the dust, heat and tie-dyed crowds of the Rainbow Serpent Festival. With this act of stamina, concepts of masculinity and theatricality are stirred and shaken.

Louis Porter’s photography book: Bad Driving

Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine Reader Find

By Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine in New Photography on Thursday 1 March 2012

The cover of Louis Porter’s latest photographic book, Bad Driving, shows a road marker lying limply against the asphalt, in prostration for the bad driving that put it there. Fairground bumper cars have a satirical slant, as does this collection of dents and scrapes. With the click of Porter’s camera, a mangled sign take a bow and a fence curls up in defeat, as the flaws of crap drivers find sculptural expression.

Mongolian Hunting Association Museum in Ulaanbaatar

Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine Reader Find

By Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine in Cool Travel on Wednesday 29 February 2012

Gaping red paint mouths of taxidermied animals glimmer in the dim light of an old office building gone wrong. The small bowlegged man who unlocked the museum joins me and motions to stroke furs hanging from the low ceiling. Between touching pelts, I look at dusty dioramas as he makes dramatic rifle shooting gestures at […]

Yvonne Todd’s Seahorsel photo series

Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine Reader Find

By Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine in New Photography on Wednesday 29 February 2012

There is both pride and humiliation in many acts, from doing the splits to posing for a passport photo. Unable to objectively see ourselves, we are reliant on our naive confidence to ‘bring it’. Yvonne Todd’s latest series, Seahorsel, continues to twist and trample the contradiction to ‘act natural’. With Seahorsel, Todd’s highly inspectable large format photographs bring a disarming clarity to acts like prancing with seaweed.

Lee Walton: A Perfect Circle of Piles

Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine Reader Find

By Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine in Video on Tuesday 28 February 2012

Lee Walton looks low-key as he empties 27 cans of shaving cream into fluffy, collapsible mounds of foam around his normal looking neighborhood. The white foam seductively expands creating temporary landmarks along a two-mile radius from his home. A flimsier version of stone cairns, a more poetic gesture than scratching ‘I was here’. Walton makes […]

Benjamin Dewey’s Things Could Be Worse series

Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine Reader Find

By Amy Marjoram from Excerpt Magazine in New Illustration on Monday 27 February 2012

Most of the things we worry about don’t happen, it’s the things you aren’t expecting that turn up and smack you in the face. Benjamin Dewey is working on those with his Things Could Be Worse series. His illustrations sway between flip effronteries and epic messes, preparing us for troubled times when monsters stampede the village.
