The controversial and provocative photographic work of Andres Serrano

Photography // Friday, February 28, 2014
Andres Serrano is extremely well known yet underappreciated. The majority of people who are aware of his work are only familiar with his publicity stunt "Piss Christ," where he soaked a crucifix of Jesus in urine. While this may seem vile, Serrano is interested in what contemporary religion and sexuality look like. Many may claim this statement, but none have explored it in such an arduous and disturbing manner as Serrano. 

Sacha Goldberger’s Superhero Grandma

Photography // Friday, February 28, 2014
When photographer Sacha Goldberger saw that his 91-year-old grandmother, Frederika, was stuck in a sorrowful state of apathy and unhappiness, he made it his goal to correct this through a new photographic project. The result was a collection of images where he created a superhero persona played by his grandmother in full costumes including face paint and props. 

"Taliban" by Thomas Dworzak

Photography // Thursday, February 27, 2014
Thomas Dworzak discovered these photographs in 2002 in an abandoned portrait studio in the Middle East and was subsequently published in a book. With so many misperceptions and unwarranted hatred around Islam faith in America it is very interesting to see the portrayal of the extremist group, the Taliban, on their own terms. In these photographs with humorous European backgrounds, they seem harmless...

Photography // Thursday, February 27, 2014
In Henry Hargreaves’s body of work “No Seconds,” he photographs the final meals requested by death row inmates which are paired with text describing the requested meal, the name of the criminal, and the crime he/she committed. Photographed in the style of a visual survey, each image appeals to a person’s desire to understand the inner workings of their criminal minds.

“Zorg in Nederland” by Roel Visser

Photography // Wednesday, February 26, 2014
I know almost nothing about about Roel Visser, except that he is Dutch. The book I looked at wasn’t in English and neither is his website, but he has shown a decent bit around Europe. The images are from the book “Zorg in Nederland”, in which it seems the man was given complete access to a hospital.

The photography of Bill Henson

Photography // Wednesday, February 26, 2014
Bill Henson is a prolific Australian photographer. He is primarily known for his work with adolescents, which addresses sexuality and gender in a beautifully ambiguous manner. The bodies seem to be floating in endless space, illuminated in a dramatic light. These photographs could easily be cinematic stills. 

Taryn Simon’s "Birds of the West Indies" @ Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills

Photography // Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Photographer Taryn Simon’s body of work entitled Birds of West Indies pulls inspiration from a 1936 taxonomy publication of the same name by American ornithologist James Bond, who also happens to be the individual that Ian Fleming based his famous secret agent character James Bond. In her images, Simon searched for and photographed items from James Bond movies...
