Photography // Friday, May 02, 2014
Congelese photographer Kiripi Katembo Siku began his career as a painter before moving to photography, and this transition becomes all the more apparent in his portrayal of daily life in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Entitled "Un Regard", Katembo captures the routines and vicissitudes of the denizens through reflections of dirty water and puddles, giving the series a painterly effect as if rendered from the hand of an impressionist.

Day to Night

Photography // Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Photographer Stephen Wilkes has created a unique body of work that captures the bustle and vivaciousness of cities across the globe. In his images, Wilkes photographs each scene over the course of an entire day from early morning to night and then compiles these images to create photographs that capture each city’s full cycle of activity. The scenes usually include a section of full daytime exposure that seamlessly fades into a nighttime portion that includes longer exposures showing blurs of colored motion.

The project was conceived in 2002/2003 and some images from this series of pictures initially debuted at Andrew Kreps Gallery a year later. The photographs foster an engagement inspired by freed associations in contrast to the tradition of conceptual photography, which tends to establish prescribed interpretations and fixed meanings.

He is widely known for his aerial photographs, but his images of Italian life are equally phenomenal.
