Meghann Riepenhoff – ‘Littoral Drift’

‘s series ‘Littoral Drift‘ – catching the ocean waves. Literally.

“This work stems from my fascination with the nature of our relationships to the landscape, the sublime, time, and impermanence. Entitled Littoral Drift, a geologic term describing the action of wind-driven waves transporting sand and gravel, the series consists of camera-less cyanotypes made in collaboration with the landscape and the ocean, at the edges of both. The elements that I employ in the process—waves, rain, wind, and sediment—leave physical inscriptions through direct contact with photographic materials.”

“Animals fascinate me as singular and beautiful beings, which we have to take care of. For several years, I have been photographing them and through my photography, I try to portray them in their beauty, and, in a way, to get closer to them”

Paulette Tavormina – ‘Natura Morta’

Paulette Tavormina’s series ‘Natura Morta’ – a beautiful response in photographic form to the Old Dutch, Spanish, and Italian Masters of the 17th century – Giovanna Garzoni, Francesco de Zurbarán and Adriaen Coorte – as intensely personal interpretations of their timeless, universal stories.

“I have always been attracted to the magic of objects that evoke memories. Being a sentimental person, capturing moments in photography brings me back to past feelings so I can savor them again.”

“My photographs tell stories. The “Figs” express the Sicilian family history. I can imagine they are from my brother’s tree that was a graft from my father’s tree and in turn a graft of my grandfather’s tree. Snails on the branches are from my cousin’s villa in Palermo, next to the abandoned Giuseppe Lampedusa’s villa (author of Il Gattopardo, The Leopard). Lampedusa died in 1957. Snails at his villa look the same as snails at my cousin’s villa.”

Available as a photo book.

 

Sebastiaan Bremer

Sebastiaan Bremer‘s hand painted dot patterns create an explosion of colours and breathe a new life into these perfectly composed, meticulously painted and coloured flowers. Using already existing photographs and prints from a 1948 book called “Bloemen” (Flowers), he calls for a new perception of the process of ‘re-thinking’ a visual document .

JeeYoung Lee – into a world of fantasy and fairy tales

JeeYoung Lee is a young artist from Korea, born 1983. Her studio is just 3x6m in the center of Seoul, but enough to create her amazing hand-crafted works. Literally. Everything in her art is handcrafted. With extraordinary patience for weeks, sometimes months, she creates the fabric of a universe born from her mind, then puts herself in this theatrical performance and clicks the shutter.  That’s it. Hard work, fantasy and no photoshop. Her art  is described as a fusion of installations, pop art, surreal landscapes and photography.
