Formento & Formento

Photography // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
In the photographic works of husband and wife team Formento & Formento, it’s easy to see their inspiration and love for theatrical narratives. Echoing the dramatic lighting of Hithcock, the depictions of solitude by Edward Hopper, and the versatile female roles portrayed by Cindy Sherman, each image is it’s own story belonging to each character depicted in the photographs. 

the work of Mark Cohen

Photography // Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Mark Cohen is often forgotten as one of the most inventive street photographers. It’s easier to make up close images in big cities with crowds. Mark Cohen works in smaller suburban areas in an extremely fragmented and graphic style. He points out the specific things of interest, creating surreal compositions with body parts. Often he seeks out children and youth culture in oddly sexualized images of children in bathing suits or a group of boys sucking on cigarettes and lollipops. The compositions are daring and nightmarish.

Andreas Gursky's large architectural and landscape photographs

Photography // Monday, May 05, 2014
Andreas Gursky is one of the most prominent photographers of the past two decades. His work is large scale and deals with colossal structures and collective existence. The photographs are from a very objective and high up perspective, creating broad landscapes with an impersonal feeling. We see people working in factories and the stock exchange, a 99-cent store rife with colorful objects juxtaposed with the minimal aesthetic of a Prada store. 

The Bechers

Photography // Monday, May 05, 2014
Since the 1950’s, German photography duo Bernd and Hilla Becher have set the precedent for photographic surveys. Their compositional style first formed when the pair set out to document the architectural similarities among industrial buildings in the Ruhr Valley of Germany. Over the years, they began photographing all over the world and all different types of structures including water towers, gas tanks, and mine heads.

The work of Noell S. Oszvald

Photography // Saturday, May 03, 2014
With a shadowy and highly conceptual aesthetic, like the images of dreams upon awakening, Hungarian photographer Noell S. Oszvald presents powerful, surreal self-portraits rich in sentiment and composition. At 22-years-old her portfolio, although small, holds the sophistication of a photographer who has been established for years.

Kiripi Katembo's "Un Regard" photo series

Photography // Friday, May 02, 2014
Congelese photographer Kiripi Katembo Siku began his career as a painter before moving to photography, and this transition becomes all the more apparent in his portrayal of daily life in Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Entitled "Un Regard", Katembo captures the routines and vicissitudes of the denizens through reflections of dirty water and puddles, giving the series a painterly effect as if rendered from the hand of an impressionist. 

The Strange Characters of Diane Arbus

Photography // Thursday, May 01, 2014
Throughout the 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s New York City native Diane Arbus created an extensive photographic body of work that provided glimpses of strangeness in everyday life. While her photography was documentary, her use of composition and subject matter transformed her work into it’s own unique sub-genre. 

Hopper Meditations

Photography // Thursday, May 01, 2014
Drawing inspiration from the paintings of Edward Hopper, Richard Tuschman’s series “Hopper Meditations” evokes the moody color palettes, cityscape backdrops, and solitary female charac-ters that are signature elements in Hopper’s paintings. Tuschman explains, “I wanted to do a series of staged figurative narratives, somehow connected to past art, but also something I could take ownership of.
