Unknown Constellation

Photography // Wednesday, May 14, 2014
At the age of 8, photographer Robin Myers discovered the recently released book “Cosmos” by Carl Sagan. The book left a lasting impression on her by igniting a fascination with the workings of the universe which she explores in her photographic series “Unknown Constellation”. Myers photographed surfaces, textures, and objects where she found a visual resemblance to the universe and abstractly photographed them to show the viewer what she is seeing. 

Conflicts, world events and social issues as seen by Luc Delahaye

Photography // Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Luc Delahaye is a widely respected photojournalist most notably known for successfully bridging the gap between documentation and fine art. His images, shot with larger camera formats, have an intense attention to detail. The photographs do not attempt to tell an entire story, instead the image conveys a fragment of a larger story; the photographs become further decontextualized when they are placed in a gallery setting.

RIP The Great H.R. Giger (1940-2014)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 13, 2014
We were sad to hear this morning that renowned Swiss artist H.R. Giger has passed away. Most well known for designing the monster and sets for Ridley Scott's "Alien," Giger influenced a generation of artists and filmmakers. Giger's work melded and combined mechanical, machine and human elements into nightmarish creatures, creating surrealist images in a style he described as "biomechanical" or "biomechanoids."
