Andreas Gefeller : The Japan Series (Photography)

Sensitizing and expanding our perception of what is allegedly a familiar reality is the attitude Düsseldorf-based photographer Andreas Gefeller adopts in his work. His most recent photographs are clearly more formal and structural, and they exhibit striking pictorial qualities.

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.

Jan Rufelt : ‘Plastic Wrapped’ Series (Photography)

“I’m an educated artist painter who early became interested in photography. From the beginning using photography as “notebook pictures” to remember a certain place or thing. When digital photography became more common, I started manipulating and playing with pictures in the computer, often combining painting and digital picture on paper and canvas. Today, I try out different cameras, both digital and lately old analogue cameras to find out how I can use the pictures they take.” – Jan Rufelt

Gianni Galassi : Photography Series

Gianni Galassi’s images are focused around the relationship between light and shadow on the surfaces of urban and industrial buildings. Which leads to a set of architectural visions geometrically combined within the frame, emphasizing a whole of elements which transcend the original function of the portrayed artifact, and giving rise to unintentional aesthetic values. The square format sets a distance from the typical rectangular or panoramic frame of movies and TV. A symbol of geometrical purity, the square suggests a formal reading of the image, which is freed from any narrative intention.

Andreas Gefeller : The Japan Series (Photography)

Gefeller takes at least two shots of utility poles vertically from below. In the subsequent digital composite the poles disappear, and the innumerable cables and transformers are converted into an abstract composition against a monochrome background. The absence of points of reference and orientation in these works opens up a new perspective on familiar situations.

Alexey Titarenko : “St. Petersburg” Series (Photography)

“Titarenko presents the city as mystical and eerie, a reflection of the many tragedies that occurred there throughout the 20th century. His key inspiration is not contemporary photographic practice, but rather music, and particularly that of Shostakovich. His black-and-white pictures allow for details that situate the scene in time and place. Many photographers have employed “blur”, but Titarenko applies it to street photography, transforming straight reportage into haunting poetry.” Barbara Pollack

James Casebere : Constructed Photography

James Casebere’s pioneering work has established him at the forefront of artists working with constructed photography. For the last thirty years he has consistently devised increasingly complex models and photographed them in his studio. Based solidly on an understanding of architecture as well as art historical and cinematic sources, Casebere’s abandoned spaces are hauntingly evocative.

Aras Karimi : Photography Series

I look at photography as a relationship between light and film: light as a playful actor and film as a serious recorder. The job of a photographer, which is 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.

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

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.

Maite Guerrero ‘Minuscule’ Photography Series

Guerrero’s Minuscule collection of photo manipulations is truly magnificent. So much attention has been paid to detail, composition, and scale in this series, that it’s easy to believe the images are real.

George Ramms ‘Long Exposures’ (Photography Series)

By using long exposures, George Ramms directs the viewers attention to the still object of the picture. Things and places that are not obvious, or even mostly ignored to be photographed, unveil their beauty in monochrome pictures with a smooth skin of light.

Brandt Campbell : “Cinemascapes” Series (Photography)

My ‘Cinemascapes’ are an ongoing series of [mostly] street photos shot in such a way that they appear cinematic and invoke a sense of narrative, which is open to the viewer’s interpretation.
