Photographer Spotlight: James Nizam

Nizam_Railing_Totem-1

Railing (Illuminations Series), 2015

 
A selection of images from “Vestiges of Memory” by Vancouver-based photographer James Nizam. Structural fixtures are meticulously covered in Scotchlite reflective material and photographed at night.

When I saw the series in person (really large) at Gallery Jones there was a beautiful almost magic-like quality to them. As with much of Nizam’s work this series examines time and place through a series of experiments that feel extremely personal. More images below.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
