A great use of digital image manipulation by Federico Cabrera for fashion brand GILLES ET DADA. I am loving how it looks like a modern, severe version of a tribe.

Dan Holdsworth uses long, sometimes super long exposures to capture the amazing light that bathes his surreal landscape, resulting in a otherworldly, super-abstracted reality.

Jeff Burton does austere looking images, vanilla even, but gives them an erotic, subversive twist.

frederique daubal – hide and seek

leave a comment »

This unsettling art project by French artist and Hint friend Frederique Daubal. For her Hide and Seek photographic series, Frederique cut out pages from fashion magazines, sliced them into fringe and made them into masks resembling Muslim niqābs. It’s astatement on identity, transformation and what it means to be French today

Nils Nova creates surreal spaces with photographs and inkjet prints, reflecting and refracting the reality from the art. I would love to stand in one of the rooms to feel the impact. the photos, I am afraid, does the work no favours.

caleb charland’s biographs

leave a comment »

Mysterious and immensely colourful, Caleb Charland‘s photographic images created by bacteria just makes sense.

The “Bacteria” project was conceived when Charland’s curiosity led him to relinquish control of the image-making process by introducing bacteria to his film. By consuming the gelatin emulsion and re-depositing and repositioning the image particles, the bacteria create patterns and shapes, not dissimilar to those left behind by other natural processes. These remarkable images are a biograph, evidence of a bacterial life cycle, an index of existence.

An amazing photographer who just makes it right, Anton Tang is Singapore based but whose work has international appeal. I love his series of  box-shaped vinyl toys being given life and emotions through his unique lenses.

ice fishing shacks

with one comment

Awesome serene images of ice-fishing shacks by Scott Peterman, featured by Polar Inertia.

For the last few years I have worked on a project photographing ice fishing shacks in the lakes region of Maine. These shacks illustrate the primal elements of shelter, food, warmth and an ongoing battle against the caprices of nature. They are entirely utilitarian in their purpose, using lightweight windproof materials such as foam insulation sheet metal, plastic or wood, yet put together in surprisingly ingenious ways, appearing as crude minimalist sculpture.

The photographs are taken on milky days in rain, fog and snow, when the light is filtered and the range of color is extremely narrow. This makes the shacks appear all the more mysterious, as if they have been airlifted onto the scene, opening them up to secondary narratives beyond the strictly functional.
