The Anti-Sartorialist: Photographer Hans Eijkelboom

Hans-Eijkelboom06

Phaidon has released a fantastic book called “People of the Twenty-First Century”, which is a comprehensive collection of street photography by Hans Eijkelboom. (Good last name amirite?)

Hans Eijkelboom would hang around areas with lots of pedestrians, often near malls, and look for recurring elements. These could be things like men carrying purses, or couples walking arm in arm, band t-shirts, or gelled hair. He would shoot for anywhere from half an hour to several hours, using a camera hung around his neck and a trigger in his pocket. Later, in his Amsterdam studio he’d arrange the images into grids that he called ‘Photo Notes’.

The book represents two decades of these fascinating studies. It’s hard to look at these images and not chuckle at the idea of individualism. The work is definitely funny but also sort of profoundly sad. Take a look at lots more below!

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
