Fernell Franco : Photography Series

“That tragic, poor, transitional element that is found all over Latin America is encapsulated in those images… The act of binding, of shipping and storing, bespeaks a defenseless class that exists in each of those countries, where there are people who have never owned property and whose only option for conserving what little they have is to bind and enclose it before moving on elsewhere.” – fernell franco

László Moholy-Nagy : Photograms

“László Moholy-Nagy is a world-famous figure of twentieth-century avant-garde art. His visual art and theoretical works, photographs, films, educational activities and photograms – taken without a camera and now synonymous with his name – were of such significance that it is no exaggeration to say that since Moholy-Nagy, we see things differently; since Moholy-Nagy, our thinking about art has been transformed. His innovations over the decades have become so natural, his influence so pervasive, that we now almost have to rediscover him once again.

László Moholy-Nagy : Photography Series

He made beautiful abstract images, successfully creating works of art from nothing but light and color. But the processes of color reproduction of that time were simply not up to his standards and so his latest camera photography is still virtually unknown.

Aras Karimi : Photography Series

Photography is a relationship between light and film: light as a playful actor and film as a serious recorder. A photographers job, experimental by nature, is to write the best scenario for this one-time instant play. A genuine play is inevitably the result of accurate eyes, free mind, and fundamentals of photography at heart.

Barbara Kasten : Studio Constructs (Photographs)

“The process of capturing an image through a camera lens requires “an object.” This body of work addresses the representational value of that object. By photographing a transparent plane, and its shadow, familiar association with life experience is eliminated. The result is a “concrete photographic” abstract image.”[bk]

Tom McLaughlan : Photography Series

Paul Klee said “a line is a dot that went for a walk”. And one day – while out walking in Valencia, Berlin and Zurich – the line came across shadow, sky and negative space. These photographs explore the relationship between the four and were inspired directly by the work and friendship of: Gianni Galassi.

Christiane Feser : ‘Latent Constructs’ Series (Photography)

The series of photographs “Latent Constructs” can be ordered within the tradition of abstract photography. This genre of photography deals with the basic principles of the medium itself: the play of light and shadow, the materiality of the paper, lens distortions, chromatic aberrations as well as visual traces of the aging process of the supporting material all play a role.

roB_meL – Photography Series (Architectural)

Personally, I think that contemporary architecture has given rise to a new vision of dialogues in urbanism, a sort of “RE – interpretation” of its artistic rhythm of progress – whether it be deconstructionist, brutalist, fantastic or expressionist or clearly visionary or even flowing and introverted.

Aaron Siskind : Photography Series

“Move on objects with your eye straight on, to the left, around to the right. Watch them grow large as you approach, group and regroup themselves as you shift your position. Relationships gradually emerge and sometimes assume themselves with finality. And that’s your picture.” Aaron Siskind

Peter Keetman : ‘Volkswagen Werk’ Series (Photography)

In 1953, Peter Keetman spent a week at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg. The result was a series of exceptionally clear, almost abstractly detailed photographs that document the entire production process of the VW Beetle. Storage stacks of shiny metal bumpers look like so many modernist sculptures; car bodies hovering above the assembly line retrospectively form a surreal Pop Art montage.

Mario Giacomelli : Photography Series

“To be sure the landscape can’t run away, and yet I always fear that it may. [Sometimes] I must set up my tripod, so I worry that the landscape may disappear the next second and I don’t stop keeping an eye on it while I get prepared. Then, when pressing the shutter, I hold my breath. These moments are the greatest joys in my life, as if I were undressing the most beautiful woman in the world—that is, if she will allow herself be undressed. If the photo is a success, it means that she was willing. If not, it has been a lovely dream.” – Mario Giacomelli

Sylvain Lagarde : ‘The dancer upstairs is in my head’ Series

Black and white photography is for me a monochrome expression which is able to go to the spirit of everything because it eliminates the “superficiality” of colors. It doesn’t mean that color does not have its place. Color imposes another vision. But black and white is the way i use to reach essence,

Jehsong Baak : Photography Series

Baak freely acknowledges that Robert Frank and Joself Koudelka have served as inspirational mentors in his work. The parallels in the lives of these three photographers are striking as are the basic themes of their work. Yet Baak maintains his own visual language and context that is complex and poignant, creating a personal path so that his work serves as confessions and insights into his persona and life.

Eric Mencher : Photography Series

I believe in and love photography. It alone can forever freeze a mystery, a memory, a moment. I photograph everything, from the most (seemingly) mundane daily details to the significant stories of our day.

“I am a very personal and original photographer, whose working-method aims to transfer in my images the feelings I experienced while shooting. I am above all an atmosphere photographer. My atmosphere captures results from a subtle mixture between fuzzy zones and perfectly sharp ones.” – Fernand Hick

Richard Stultz : ‘Almost Monochrome’ Series (Photography)

What a fascinating place the urban landscape is, with its intersection of architectural shapes, light, and color. Using these elements, I strive to create a structure within an image that’s especially satisfying. Sometimes the scene is mostly geometrical, consisting of trapezoids, rectangles, triangles, and circles.

Junku Nishimura : Street Photography

Junku Nishimura is a Japanese street photographer. Looking through Junku’s pictures is like discovering an old dusty attic album of beautiful, vintage photographs taken in another time, another surreal place. His subjects are mysterious, alluring, and appear trapped within a moment in a timeless tale

Takuma Nakahira: For a Language to Come (Photography Series)

Takahira wrote that “Extremely grainy images and intentionally unfocussed photographs in particular, have already become mere decoration.” I can think of many examples where that might be true, but Nakahira’s case, it most definitely is not.

Reiko Imoto : ‘Visions of The Other Side’ Series (Photography)

These images represent surreal moments that I see in everyday life. On the street, or wherever I go, the hidden side of ordinary things attract my eye. To me, photography is a tool to expand ways of seeing the mysteries that I used to see easily when I was a little child.

Reiko Imoto : ‘Dreams of The Amnesiac’ Series (Photography)

This body of work is about my feeling of forgetting. Sometimes I cannot remember my dream after waking up, even though I know I had a dream and I try to recall it very much. What I remember is only a feeling or mood from the dream without visual evidence.
