As part of our ongoing partnership with Feature Shoot, Beautiful/Decay is sharing Alison Zavos’ article on Photographer Daniele Buetti.
In his new series oh boy oh boy, photographer Daniele Buetti, utilizes existing documentary photos of terror, war, and conflicts, and transforms these troublesome scenes into abstractions reminiscent of mosaics and stained glass windows.
Through this work Buetti exposes the viewer to scenes such as those from Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo that many have become desensitized to through repeat and constant media exposure. He uses many different filters to distract and distance us from the original scene as he strips away large parts of original information in favor of an immediate beauty— thus presenting a new way for these images to be seen.
oh boy oh boy will be on view at Bernhard Knaus Fine Art from August 31, 2012 until September 20, 2012.
