I’m a huge fan of Jeremy Geddes’s paintings, especially the Cosmonaut series. The scenography on his creations, for the most part, is deserted, but in the same frame comes out a lost, undefined character. What’s more, the paintings are very moody: they invite the viewer into their world. The way he captures the moment and […]
Sam Wong is a kid from Hong Kong who’s been shooting like crazy over the last three years around Melbourne. The guy has that real no-shame Ron Galella style approach that is conducive to getting intimate street shots that most people wouldn’t dare attempt. His work ethic is unreal, and he manages to document even […]
Will the world never cease to amaze us? In 2008, the Chinese village of Xuanping in Sichuan was completely destroyed by an 8.0-magnitude earthquake. At least that’s what everybody thought.
Light comes from a bewildering range of sources: a tungsten bulb here, a fluorescent lamp there, an overcast sky above. Its warmth or coolness is relative. This can make a photographer, who is keen on finding the perfect white balance, go absolutely mad. Not so with Dale Rothenberg. He embraces the inherent dilemma. The resulting […]
Karsten Wegener is an advertising photographer based between Hamburg and Berlin producing images for high profile clients. His personal work is completely different, and is a variety of weird and wonderful projects. This project, Wurstkunst, involves recreating famous artworks from sausages and other meats. Including in this series is Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, Jeff Koons Poodle, […]
Noah Kalina isn’t just the man who brought you a self-portrait everyday for over ten years. He also takes photographs of other people. His new series, Internet/Sex, juxtaposes lonely computers with time-lapse photos of couples having sex. The photographs of the computers seem more lewd than the sex ones because of the extreme loneliness that […]
Toronto-based experimental photographer and filmmaker Osheen Harruthoonyan is not only taking photographs but proverbially performing magic in his dark room. His work is far removed from everything I’ve seen when it comes to artistic expression and cryptical depth.
Laura Makabresku’s photos scream of the Victorian era with the proliferation of lace and beautiful yet sad girls. There is an overarching theme of the girls being trapped, restrained, or hurt. The soft lighting of the photographs mask the horror that the photographs portray and softens the harsh subjects, making the photographs viewable and even […]
Say you have something of a creative urge and you’ve got some play-doh. What to do? Well, why not make play-doh versions of famous photographs? Or at least that’s what Eleanor Macnair decided to do. Her Tumblr blog, simply called Photographs rendered in Play-Doh, features play-doh versions of photos by everyone from Bill Brandt to […]
Masha Mel is an amazing fashion photographer based in London. Mostly shooting women, Mel has a way of capturing the inner (and outer) beauty in each of her models. Her work spreads along a spectrum of Spring Breakers (the movie) looking girls to serious runway model attire.
This incredible photography series by Jordan Matter illustrates the unbelievable talent of ballet dancers. Composed of random situations in well-known and beautiful locations, the elegance and skill of the dancers contrasts starkly with their mundane background.
If you haven’t been remiss in your Lost At E Minor reading, then you would have seen the post in March on Menswear Dog, the fashionable Shiba Inu dressed up in GQ worthy duds. It turns out that dogs aren’t the only creatures who look good decked out in trench coats, fur collared jackets, or denim shirts. In Miguel Vallinas’s series Second Skins, we see all sorts of beasts, from deer and zebras to owls and roosters, modeling the best of contemporary fashion for us.
During the 60s and 70s, Yugoslavia was a prospering playground for the architects of the Spomeniks: Monuments that were created as memorials to the Second World War. But with the fall of socialism, these monuments seem to be abandoned and forgotten.
Sammy Slabbinck, who describes himself as one who ‘renders dynamic collage prints, combining vintage photographs with contemporary compositional styles’, does all these unexpected collage artworks, including one of an all-star wrestling team comprising of respected musicians like Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, Jim Morrison and David Bowie, The one with the family sitting down at the dining table and drinking up spoonfuls from their soup bowls of unsuspecting swimmers is pure genius.
