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.
Artist Max Siedentopf and designer Yuki Kappes have just released the first issue of their new quarterly fine art photography publication, Ordinary. The magazine offers a refreshing and humorous look at mundane objects around us, and even ships with the objects themselves! This issue focuses on plastic cutlery; knives, forks, and spoons were sent to 20 artists around the world with the request that they’d add something extra to the ordinary.
Have a look at more images from the issue, as well as a list of contributing artists, below.
A selection of photos from “This is What Hatred Did” by photographer Cristina de Middel, which blurs the line between documentary and fiction. The series is her attempt to capture, and better understand, Nigeria; offering a point of view that she feels is more fair than a purely photojournalistic one. More gorgeous images below.
David Janesko and Adam Donnelly forage for sticks and small objects with a pre-existing hole (for the aperture), building cameras for their landscape shots out of the landscape itself. As much a part of the artistry of their photography as the resulting photograph, these sculpture-like structures are often big enough for one of them to fit inside! They’re currently preparing for a two-week expedition, embarking in the Spring and constructing a total of 9 cameras as they make their way along the Rio Grande River from Texas to Colorado. Watch their short video on Booooooom TV now! And check out the Indiegogo page to help support their project!
