Lukáš Peterec : Photography

I was born in Prague, Czech Republic. I started taking photos five years ago and most of all, i like minimalist landscape photography. For my work i use classic medium format camera and the roll film.

Bohnchang Koo : ‘White’ Series (Photography)

Bohnchang’s work has always dealt with impermanence, with the decay and disappearance of living things. In his recent work, Koo continues this long journey to capture the fleeting and the mortal. In these spare natural landscapes—the sea, pine needles on snow, dust on a wall, withered vines —the artist renders scenes of exquisite beauty while evoking the inexorable passage of time.

Grant Mudford : Photography Series

One of the most dynamic parts of the image to me, whether paintings or photographs, is the frame. Photographs, like paintings, have a frame. They have an extremity and they have a boundary.

Heidi Leverty : ‘Outbox’ Series (Photography)

This body of work is about recycled and discarded items that no longer perform the functions for which they were intended. What appears to be without value is in fact a source of inspiration, a bounty of objects d’art. Removed from their first use, these materials of paper, metal, plastic and fabric secrete an unexpected visual richness, the product of chance.

Arnold Newman : ‘Early Works’ (Photography Series)

“As for myself, I work the way I do because of the kind of person that I am – my work is an expression of myself. It reflects me, my fascination with people, the physical world around us, and the exciting medium in which I work. I do not claim that my way is the best or the only way, it is simply my way. It is an expression of myself, of the way I think and feel.” – Arnold Newman

Friederike von Rauch : Photography

Friederike von Rauch photographs buildings. A complete building or merely a detail. The building on its own, or within its surroundings. The interior or the exterior. Her photographs are meticulously stylized. The framing and the angle are chosen with care. She describes herself as an intuitive photographer.

Renato D’Agostin : Tokyo Untitled (Photography Series)

Longing to break the unconscious, immediate and easy processes of the known and the predictable, I traveled to Tokyo for the first time. I was immediately struck by a sense of disorientation and an inability to quickly locate my own position within the geography of the city.

Laurent Millet : ‘Les Monolithes’ Series (Photography)

“In my imagination,” says Millet, “I was seeing these engines, half-covered by the water, like geometric shapes.” It’s not necessary to know what he was thinking when he made these pictures to feel they have a somber quality. And yet there is a delicacy about them too, in the irregularity of their outside lines, and in the flimsiness of the shapes themselves. “I have a strong necessity to build things,” he says, “but now my constructions have become faster and lighter.”

Pansa Sunavee : Photography Series

For me, photography is just like a door conveying the aesthetics of art. It is a kind of art created from the real situation around me which can happen every second. Sometimes I seek for the beauty of things surrounded and then shoot them with personal perspectives and feeling towards the objects or incidents.

Zoltan Bekefy : ‘Winter Minimalism’ Series (Photography)

I started digital photography in 2007, which eventually changed my perception about the world. I have been tirelessly exploring the scenes of nature near and far, and trying to capture those magical moments and transform them into eternal art.

Brett Weston : ‘Abstraction Portfolios’ (Photography)

The two portfolios titled Abstractions, first issued in 1980, offered Brett Weston a general concept within which to collect and publish forty of the best pictures from his entire career. At age sixty-nine he may have thought of these portfolios as a kind of retrospective, even though he was by no means finished taking pictures and always said that the photograph he most cared about was the next one.

Bruno Cals : Horizons (Photography)

These photographs are suggestive of something beyond the record presented. They explore the limits of two-dimensionality, and articulate a radically different perspective on a commonplace visual scenario. In expressing this fresh point of view, Bruno Cals has invoked contrasting themes of possibility versus impossibility, presence versus emptiness, and search versus satisfaction.

Martine Franck : Photography Series

“A photograph isn’t necessarily a lie, but nor is it the truth. It’s more of a fleeting, subjective impression. What I most like about photography is the moment that you can’t anticipate: you have to be constantly watching for it, ready to welcome the unexpected.” – Martine Franck

Andrey Belkov : ‘Russian Winter’ (Photography)

My friendship with photography started when I was only 5 years old. My father gave me a toy film camera and I made my first photo. I didn’t know how to look at it. Father took my camera, opened it, took out a cassette and went away in to the darkness. He was a great magician. He could take a film and make a picture. I grew up, the magic became a reality

Stephan Zirwes : Snow (Photography)

Hundreds of meters above the ground with a climbing harness, hanging out of an open helicopter, Zirwes composes his graphical abstracting photographs. His work shows patterns, structures, connections, boarders, uniformities and contrasts but also current political and sociocritical themes. The orthogonal view of his photographs reduces the space into two dimensions.

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.

This particular sequence is constructed from numerous different series of ‘FotoWorks’ by Fernando. Therefore, I would encourage anyone who is intrigued by these marvelous works to click on each individual image to view texts & tags. This will resignify the speech of each image and each series, allowing for a better understanding of context and a further appreciation of the artists original intent.

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.

Kevin Saint Grey : Photography (Architecture)

Kevin Saint Grey is a photographer with a minimalist aesthetic. In an way, his images are understimulating. This has the effect that you tend to ‘fill’ them with a little bit of yourself. Or, as one of his followers says in a testimonial: “I get lost in them.”

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.

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.

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,
