Back to the Future by Irina Werning

February 21st, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

PANCHO IN 1983 & 2010, Buenos Aires

Irina Werning has a very nice ongoing project: Back to the Future. She asked family and friends to reenact old pictures of themselves. She writes:

“I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.”

Photographer Rune Guneriussen

January 11th, 2010 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

Photographer Rune Guneriussen from Norway combines Landscapes with household objects.  The description from “Cool Hunting” is way better then anything i could write:

“The scenes capture a peculiarly Nordic combination of otherworldliness and dark humor. A herd of desk lamps turn their lighted heads downwards to graze in the twilight of a lonely Savannah. Two chairs battle for supremacy on a lonely beach amidst a group of helpless bystanders. A line of telephones negotiates a stony mountain pass.
While Guneriussen offers no interpretations of her work, the surreal juxtaposition of man-made objects with distinctly wild settings evokes the fragility and ultimately the ridiculousness of man’s efforts to subdue nature. The clean, sterile lines of the objects stand in defiant contrast to the ragged edges of the stones, waves and trees around them. “

I really like this contrast, the colors and lights of nordic landscapes. Some could be mimicking animals,  others are just completely misplaced..i think “Telefon” is my favourite.
And there´s lots of other great work on her website. I specially like “Evolution” and “Kraft”.

Stop Motion Animation Film “Lucia & Luis”

November 4th, 2009 // 1 Comment // Posted by Andrea

Stop motion video “LUIS” (Part 2 of 2) by Niles Atallah, Cristobal Leon & Joaquin Cociña on Vimeo.

This video is wicked. I love the pictures, the dark and eerie atmosphere with these japanese horror elements. The execution of the idea and the the style of the stop motion effects let the whole video become a masterpiece of its own. The commission of the Illustrative thought the same and they decided to exhibit it.  It’s now displayed in Berlin. I was there and it is worth to visit the exhibition, the work is terrific and expressive. The artists are very talented and you can see a whole bunch of styles, which creates the current illustration movements.

Established in Berlin in 2006, Illustrative has been held twice in Berlin (2006 & 2007), once in Paris (2007), and once in Zürich (2008). Being a big success right from the start it managed to be the leading international forum for contemporary illustration and graphic arts.  It’s Taking place from October 16 – November 1 in Berlin. ›› Read the whole Article…

Dan Tobin Smith does some amazing Installations for Still Life Photography. As you can see there is almost no Photoshop involved and these Pics require a massive effort. See lots more on his website, where he shows some impressive ads for clients like sony, visa or the new album cover of the hip hop artist Jay Z. I love the colors and intensity of these..Letter Y is my favourite and in the same time the most recent one (dated September 2009).

Lichtfaktor from Cologne

September 15th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Very cool way to use light for fotos and videos by Lichtfaktor from Cologne ..way to go.

“The Cologne artists’ collective, consisting of VJ $ehvermögen (photographer and VJ since 1997 with many years of experience in the event field) and JIAR (communications designer and graffiti artist), experiments with the possibilities yielded by bulb (long-term) exposure and painting. Their aim is to explore all aspects of “lightwriting” and to develop it further.”
