The Photographic Worlds of Anne Hardy

Photography // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
For years, photographer Anne Hardy has been creating intricately detailed interiors that she constructs herself and then photographs. Her use of bold colors and unique object placement often make her images resemble a set from a Wes Anderson film or a scene from an episode of Twin Peaks. 

“No Man’s Land” by Mishka Henner

Photography // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Mishka Henner’s book “No Man’s Land” is a photographic project of roadside prostitutes in Italy and Spain. The book was produced entirely by searching on Google Street to find the images. A book like this shows the vast amount of information accessible today, one only has to research in order to produce a photographic book. 

Kahn & Selesnick's "Mars: Adrift On the Hourglass Sea" Series

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
We love a good conceptual photo series, and the Kahn & Selesnick's fantastically visionary Mars: Adrift On the Hourglass Sea photography series is one of our favorites we have seen in quite some time. Envisioning an expedition and civilization on Mars, the work focuses on societies in crisis and on the brink of major change, and although the work appears alien, the DYI and recycled nature of some of the materials in each photo makes everything appear familiar.

“Screen Lives” by Matthew Pillsbury

Photographer Matthew Pillsbury’s favorite method of photographing his subjects is using long exposures.

“You’re Not From Around Here” by Mike Smith

Photography // Monday, March 17, 2014
Mike Smith’s “You’re Not From Around Here” is a book which documents the hermetic, beautiful, and surreal state of Tennessee. Smith, a German immigrant and Yale graduate, has clearly struck a nerve with the people of the seemingly banal farmland. The solitary people he photographs are fascinating anomalies, juxtaposed against the soothing and strange landscape.
