“When big masses walk into the same direction, everything is connected, you adapt yourself to it, everything becomes uniform.” Most people that live or have lived in a big city before will probably know this phenomena Frank Machalowski describes so well in the quote above.
George Digalakis was born and raised in Athens, Greece, in 1960. A medical doctor by profession, he still lives and works in Athens. What attracted him to photography is its ability to create beauty in ordinary places and order out of the disordered world.It was only in 2011 when he first studied photography at “Photoeidolo”
The nature, the humans figure and the conceptual, between the beauty and the soul. In this series I invite the viewer to enter a dream world, where solitude is more than just being alone. It is a world of soul searching the dream.
The word natura (nature) comes from natus, that means born, and urus, the generative energy. The word selvatico (wilderness) originates from selva (forest), which has the same root as sole (sun), and it means to burn.
What’s hidden behind appearances, behind clothes or even behind that skin? It’s the skin as an envelope, an interface that made me wonder and naturally brought me to the psychoanalytic concept of «Moi–Peau».
Our Nocturnes series began as an experiment, an adventure, a collaboration. A pinhole camera-maker and a wet-plate collodion artist collaborated to produce mammoth plate tintypes, echoing the work and process of the early survey photographers.
There are places that emerge in front of us as a direct expression of our own mood. Nature becomes a manifestation and pure expression of our own feelings, transcending the materiality of the elements that compose it.
In her ongoing project “It will have another title one day” Anna Block explores her experience of encounter with a place and her strong inspiration with it. In this work she constantly resorts to metaphor of a body
I first decided to pursue photography for many reasons: a love of black and white photography, a desire to reflect the silences of nature through imagery, and a wish to express a kind of visual poetry.
Vertigo is inhaled upon excess. The explosion of reality arises upon an anguish born under the physical encounter with things. Little happens on the ground, only from time to time emerges a horse, a soaring bird
My project consists of inserting some primates – they share with humans up to almost 99% of DNA – in safety capsules that will regenerate a form of primordial life, in a future day, after the extinction of the human breed.
Within the folds of any subject, an imperceptible silence resides, even resonates -a silence unheard within the nooks and crannies of the ruffles of noise that blanket the world we all live in- such matters hinting that, camera in hand
Susan Burnstine’s Absence of Being is a subtly indelible photographic exploration of the philosophical yet emotive belief that although we exist in the perpetual present, the traces of the past persist in the here-and-now, however much they seem to be effaced.
Marc Ward was never given a camera as a child. He wasn’t “hooked” on photography from the beginning…. Photography came to him by accident. As an art major in college, Marc needed a way to document his painting, print -making, and sculptural work.
Aaron Sehmar – Fine art photography allows me to be able to come up with ideas for images that are a lot more conceptual, where the end result is more of a catalyst for a larger discussion about various topics, such as the purpose of photography, hyperreality, artifice and displacement.
With a love for old analogue cameras and lenses, I roam the internet, on the search for new, mostly old, equipment. Often those treasure finds lead me to new insights or new possible techniques I have to try out.
Is this fiction or reality? This is the question underlying the series – the images provoke the viewer question what they see. Is this a picture of a warm rain forest or a cold German mixed forest? Are these animals really living in this forest or is it a giant zoo?
Looking at Antigone Kourakou´s photographs, one fully perceives the suggestive range of photographic abstraction. Although there is scarce visual information that connects the pictures with the real scenes, the situations, and the events they were born out of, the photographs imperatively call for our interpretation.
The way of working in series is very characteristic of this photographer. Also the sum of many photographies in the alone one, as a counterfoil of stills that they summarize the time and the space in an alone instant.
Photographer based in Copenhagen Denmark; educated at Vera – School of Art and Design and Media College, Viborg. Spent more than six years abroad which has been essential for the series represented on this website. Works with both analog and digital photography.
Often, inside each one of us, opposing drives make themselves felt and alternate within as light illuminates and shadow darkens our minds. Black and White. Good plays Evil. Chess figures offer an opportunity to explore this dualism.
The suburbs often feel somewhat soulless, even heartless– in spite of the fact that they often have, rather curiously, so many trees lining their streets and decorating the yards of their cookie cutter houses
