"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.

“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. 

Metallus Photography

Erotica // Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Metallus Photography was born in 1969 and currently resides in Thessaloniki, Greece. Metallus takes beautiful, dark photographs feauring dancers in dramaticaly lit spaces, contrasting the grace of the aerobic form with the harshness of confined interiors. Metallus writes that "taking pictures is totally personal. Sometimes, when my photos create discussions I haven't met before, then I feel happy."

In her images, Simon searched for and photographed items from James Bond movies... 

The Photography of Brian Finke

Photography // Tuesday, February 25, 2014
It’s not hard to spot the photographs of Brooklyn–based photographer Brian Finke. Bright, crisp, and merged somewhere between traditional documentary and narrative art, Finke captures moments heightened by unprecedented access. His award-winning works 2468: American Cheerleaders and Football Players, Flight Attendants and Construction allowed us to peer inside personal worlds outside of our own; tears on the playing field, life at 30,000 feet and an inside look at the 2010 crash of the construction industry.
