With the help of a team, Stern was able to develop custom software and hardware that he would use with his underwater scanner while scuba diving off the coast of Key Largo, Florida in a live coral reef.

"Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album" @ Royal Academy of Arts, London

Photography // Monday, July 28, 2014

"Fragments" by Patricia Voulgaris

Photography // Monday, July 28, 2014
Fragments is a collection of abstract, black and white constructions by New York artist Patricia Voulgaris’. Her process is a visual metaphor for the way we distort and recollect memories. Compositionally speaking, the photographs are all quite different from the next, but each image contains a focal point which punctures the otherwise disorientating image.

Yvette Meltzer’s “Revolutions”

Photography // Monday, July 28, 2014
In true artistic fashion, Yvette Meltzer has found inspiration in the rituals of everyday life. In her photographic series “Revolutions”, Meltzer captures the motion and blur of colors within the laundry cycle. By photographing a long exposure of a front load washing machine, Meltzer is able to capture an image that mimics the brushstrokes of an abstract painting. 

Michal Pudelka: Girls, Girls, Girls

Photography // Sunday, July 27, 2014
Photographer Michal Pudelka’s portfolio reads as an amalgamation of the ‘girl clique.’ With references that range from The Virgin Suicides to Mean Girls (and any other nod to one of the multitude of teen-girl dramas in between.) Pudelka evidences a knowledge of the power of dressing and the connotations and significance it can hold to individuals from their childhoods.

Photography // Saturday, July 26, 2014
Photographer Damon Casarez has researched the continuing struggle for independence faced by those aged 20 -30.

"IRÉEL" by Flora Borsi

Photography // Friday, July 25, 2014
In her latest series, IRÉEL, photographer Flora Borsi continues to explore photo-manipulation and conceptual photography, this time electing a more tangible approach to her experimentations. Appropriating broad, abrasive brushstrokes, Borsi creates a beautifully effacing aesthetic that refocuses the viewer’s attention, resists definition, and instead resides in a hyperrealisitc realm between acrylic portraiture and photography. 

A look inside "Paradigm Vol. 1 - Genesis"

Photography // Friday, July 25, 2014
What do Wes Lang, Noam Chomsky, Glenn O’Brien, Lance Mountain and Erik Brunetti all have in common? Nothing in particular besides being exceptionally talented in their respected fields, however they all contributed to the new independently published 343-page hardcover book, Paradigm Vol. I – Genesis. 

amy elkins's "Lucas"

Photography // Friday, July 25, 2014
Amy Elkins photographed Lucas from the time she met him at a wedding, aged 13, every three to four months since. A “longitudinal portrait”, the images quietly record changes in his face and activities. Reminiscent of rummaging through your childhood wardrobe, his shirts change from jerseys to band tees and then back to blank fabrics.
