Nicolai Howalt / Light Break Wavelengths

 

Another guessing game – what medium do you think makes up Nicolai Howalt‘s Light Break Wavelengths series? Paint? Ink? Maybe something less common? The answer is none of the above, it’s photography. Howalt challenges the boundaries of photos while exploring existential issues like the abstract and the real, life and death, horror and fascination, finite and infinite.

Irina & Silviu

 

Plenty of couples work together, but Irina and Silviu Szekely create across multiple disciplines – collage and photography. Today we’re highlighting the duo’s handmade collage work, which is made using scissors and glue just like the rest of us might grab at home. Each piece is full of completely disjointed bits and bobbles, and yet things end up ultimately harmonious. (I’m thinking we could all learn something from this, no?)

Paloma Rincón

 

It’s Monday! Let’s start the week off with something fun, shall we? Madrid-based, Mexican-born photographer Paloma Rincón creates her work at the intersection of photography, sculpture, design, installation, and illustration. At that confluence lie shapes, textures, materials, lights and colors all blended together in unexpectedly bold graphic compositions. Rincón clearly has the gift of creating dynamism in her still, harmonious imagery.

Laetitia Bica / Common land

 

Laetitia Bica‘s Common land is the culmination of an intense two years of work, both in the studio and during her residency at the Zsenne Art Lab. In a photographic series that feels like two projects rather than one, Bica explores the pre-18th century term ‘common land’, referring to land belonging to one or more persons but on which other individuals – aka ‘commoners’ – enjoyed certain rights of land use. Notice how the individuals are visible yet always covered in some way.

Jordan Tiberio / The Girl Next Door

 

The first time I recall experiencing depth of field involved window screens, so Jordan Tiberio‘s The Girl Next Door feels a bit like a trip down memory lane. In the photo essay he pays homage to Irving Penn’s 1949 photograph Summer Sleep, New York. Like our memories bits and pieces in each photo are obscured by drops of water, the whole image broken down into tiny squares that compose the whole.

Jonathan Knowles / Complex Simplicity

 

As a kid I was endlessly fascinated with the game Mousetrap, so being drawn to Jonathan Knowles‘ photographs of set designer Kyle Bean‘s Complex Simplicity project was a no-brainer. Each one is inspired by the Rube Golberg machine, originating from the man’s cartoon creations of complicated machines designed to complete simple tasks. Captured in a pastel palette with a modern treatment, Knowles created a clean and crisp lighting aesthetic across the project that allowed for a clarity of detail befitting the complex Rube Goldberg machine.

Uta Barth

 

Uta Barth has a wide breadth of work that is ever-evolving with influences of painting, sculpture, photography, and installation. Engagement and perception play big roles in her work, exploring the way the human eye might view something versus the camera, and Barth’s latest two projects – In the Light and Shadow of Morandi and Untitled 2017 – press her forward on that journey. In the first she pays homage to Morandi’s love of repetition, light, and form, while in the second Barth’s focus is on attention to detail in photography.
