Rapheal Dallaporta's "Antipersonnel"

Photography // Thursday, May 15, 2014
Rapheal Dallaporta is a renowned documentary photography for his minimal aesthetics and stringent guidelines which direct his projects. In "Antipersonnel" Dallaporta depicts, against stark black backgrounds, landmines used in war settings. These objects are meant to keep all people away, regardless of their innocence or relation to the war. The photographer completely isolates the landmines, we see them as strange objects of functional aesthetics.

Often referred to as the Sylvia Plath of photography, Francesca Woodman’s photographs are filled with emotion and are beautifully haunting.

The book left a lasting impression on her by igniting a fascination with the workings of the universe which she explores in her photographic series “Unknown Constellation”.

Conflicts, world events and social issues as seen by Luc Delahaye

Photography // Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Luc Delahaye is a widely respected photojournalist most notably known for successfully bridging the gap between documentation and fine art. His images, shot with larger camera formats, have an intense attention to detail. The photographs do not attempt to tell an entire story, instead the image conveys a fragment of a larger story; the photographs become further decontextualized when they are placed in a gallery setting.

Ian Webb

Photography // Sunday, May 11, 2014
Perusing the photography of Ian Webb elicits emotions similar to what one might feel traveling the world in a moment; to become a part of each culture's most personal routines and expeditions and feel the waters of the Yangtze run through your fingers in one moment and the cobbled streets of London beneath your feet in the next. 

Mid-Century Postwar Italian Photography

Photography // Saturday, May 10, 2014
Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Federico Fellini. These were the pillars of Italian Neorealism; the auteurs who captured the psyche and desolate conditions of the Italian lower-class from 1944 to 1952, lost in a desperation that poverty begets. Their contemporaries, photographers like Ugo Zovetti, Ferruccio Crovatto, and Bruno Rosso, used their medium in similar fashion.
