July 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

We try to hide in our modern metropolis, in the cityscape, but it seems that sometimes the city itself can be also found hidden in our mind and in our thoughts. Beijing-based photographer Jasper James captures in his photographic series called City Silhouettes the expressive silhouettes of different people mingled in the city’s landscape.

Connecting the light

November 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

It’s like connecting the dots to create figures of animals, people, geometrical schemes. That what Cassandra C. Jones does in her very impressive images of lighting ripping and branching through the skies.

She uses all sort of pictures, available to the public, and arranges them atop each other or side by side, allowing the lightning in one photo to connect with the light in another. These collages reveal concrete figures outlined of squirrels. rabbits in motion, perfect circles, “portraying an urban animal jumping through time, space and different rural, suburban and municipal locals”.

Sketching reality

May 25, 2011 § 2 Comments

How would you feel if you could affect reality and fill in the picture just by drawing your own version of it? That’s what painter and photographer Ben Heine has thought, or at least I suppose he did, in his series Pencil Vs. Camera  and has blended his beautifully taken pictures of landscapes with some of his illustrations.

What would you take with you if your house was on fire?

May 18, 2011 § Leave a comment

Don’t tell me that you never thought about it. Robert Holden in his project The Burning House asked people to prioritise the objects they would take with them, if  their house was burning. In a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental, people gathered objects, which reflected their interests and background.

Taping up the city

April 28, 2011 § 3 Comments

Geometrical forms, cubes, triangles, bricks, all made by tape. Yes, tape, the one you use to seal boxes and to roll up things. But this time in a variety of colors and shapes. New York-based artist Aakash Nihalani uses tape to create new shapes and spaces inside the existing urban landscape, by ‘connecting the dots quite differently from what we are used to in order to fill in our picture of the city’.Nihalani_Stack

Art above time

April 4, 2011 § 5 Comments

It is not a matter of newness, it is a matter of art.  Art that surpasses time. Jerry Uelsmann

Is it Magritte? Is it Escher? No, these are the photographs of Jerry Uelsmann, a pioneer of surreal photography. Alongside his friend Ansel Adams, he created some of the most beautiful images of the last century.  He assembled photographs from multiple negatives, long before the existence of digital media, in order to expose a single print in a process which took at least eight hours.

Surrealism or not? Digital processing or not? This is art. See more photos after the jump « Read the rest of this entry »
