By Nini Baseema in New Art on Tuesday 17 April 2012

Oh my god, Red Hong has done it again! This time, the immensely creative girl has come up with a portrait that is entirely created from socks. It looks a bit like she wanted to make sure that she never has to look for the other missing sock any more in her life. I like that idea as my socks seem to have a life of their own. I think I’ll be inspired from her example.

By Dave Imms in New Photography on Wednesday 11 January 2012

From Dog Walkers to Butchers and Squash Players, there is always this subtle combination of leisure and raw commitment in Dave Imms’ projects. It’s all about ‘the things we do to get by’. Here we uncover the fragile nature of the human condition in these post-game portraits. These harsh, revealing images are strengthened by the dissection of the playing areana with the markings and the natural studio-esque appearance of the courts themselves.

Davin Youngs

Julia Hennock Reader Find

By Julia Hennock in New Photography on Saturday 22 March 2008

Davin Youngs has got something sweet going on. His pictures, as he calls them, are the of-the-moment kind. Y’know, the spontaneous, romantic, stylised yet amateurish thing photographers are doing these days. Like American Apparel, but lost in the woods or asleep on the toilet. I really appreciate it.

By Jenn Porreca in New Photography on Friday 14 March 2008

Anthony Kurtz recently sent me an update including imagery for his upcoming show at the W Hotel in San Francisco. This new body of work is a collection of photos he took while on a trip in India. At first glance, the art-techie type might think these photos are taken with HDR technology, which I became an instant fan of. Thankfully, though, Anthony reassured me that images like this can still be captured the good old fashioned way: manually.
