The work of Kyler Zeleny

Photography // Thursday, August 07, 2014
Kyler Zeleny is a self-proclaimed ‘Canadian visual sociologist’. An engaging thinker and photographer, the title may explain his interest in addressing space, environments, and consciousness. His ongoing series of landscapes are created with a modified film camera, twisting at the center of the image where the direction of the landscape reverses. 

Sans Nom

Photography // Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Since 2003, photographer Jean de Pomereu has been traveling to Antartica for various personal photographic endeavors. In “Sans Nom”, Pomereu captures the unnamed icebergs of Antartica. In these images, he uses the icebergs’ subtlety against the similar palette of the sky to emphasize their fragility and enormity within their landscape. 

The work of Max Dupain

Photography // Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Australian modernist photographer Max Dupain spent his career in Sydney and created a dazzling array of nudes, still lives, and architectural photographs. In the 1980’s he photographed a series of botanical still lives which showcase Dupain’s aesthetic in the studio. The quality of light mimics his landscape pictures - sometimes harsh and surreal, with dream-like subjects and shapes.

"Coffee or Cigarettes" by William Baglione

Photography // Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Last month, as the world was paying attention to Brazil's showcase of the World Cup, we ran a city guide to Sao Paulo, as instructed by Baglione brothers William and Herbert.

Waska Tatay

Photography // Tuesday, August 05, 2014
While traveling through the Altiplano region of Bolivia, artists Thomas Rousset and Raphaël Verona photographed the region’s spiritual healers, medicine men, and witch doctors. In the photographic series titled “Waska Tatay”, the duo depict a culture steeped in tradition while also showing the modern technologies that are advancing around them. 

Grant Willings "Svart Metall"

Photography // Monday, August 04, 2014
Grant Willings’s Svart Metall is an investigation into the themes and ideals of the black metal music genre. Black metal explores the ideas of ancient pagan and satanic views and presents these feelings in a violent, often cacophonous style of music. Progressing from the themes of the music, a subculture has developed in which murders, church burnings, animal sacrifices, and other barbaric acts have occurred. 

Gateway to Death Valley

Photography // Monday, August 04, 2014
In her photographic series “Gateway to Death Valley”, artist Pamela Littkty documented life in the towns of Baker, California and Beatty, Nevada which both call themselves the gateways to Death Valley. Littky’s images portray the desolate landscape and the weathered inhabitants that choose to call it home. 

photographs by Chris Schoonover

Photography // Sunday, August 03, 2014
Chris Schoonover’s work is a gorgeously executed hybrid between travel diary and fashion portraiture. Photographing the world around him in a richly saturated, nearly cinematic manner, he takes the everyday and makes it pop. His attention to detail is obvious, with each square pixel of his shots sharp and drenched in clear intention. 

Ken Lum's "Portrait-Repeated Text"

Photography // Friday, August 01, 2014
Multimedia artist Ken Lum’s series Portrait-Repeated Text is a striking social commentary and contemporary must-see. Each piece is composed of two parts: a photographic portrait and an accompanying graphic text. This pairing creates a dramatic and impressively human scenario for the viewer, even without any real evidence to validate the subject’s implied struggle.

The work of Katy Shayne

Photography // Friday, August 01, 2014
Katy Shayne’s photographs feel a bit like the childhood scrapbook of David Lynch, emphasizing on the grotesque with a pretty major dash of female identity. Smashing innocence with vulgarity, and at times, even horror, Shayne creates her own unique genre of photography—her work is perhaps summarized best as the photo diary of a child addicted to collecting ghost stories, baby teeth, spell books, and Nancy Drew novels.
