Maria Friberg’s semi-subconciouss photos

Sometimes the Internet works in funny ways. Case in point is the photography of Maria Friberg, whose series “Still Lives” was shot between 2003-2007 and is just now getting viral attention online. The Swedish artist likes to reflect Man’s relationship to nature and so maybe the public is drawn to her images as subconscious reminders that we all need to do our part in order to help our planet. Especially since we’re only getting closer and closer to point of no return. (via)

Kelly Shimoda

1218637617

I guess you don’t want to talk to me anymore is the name of an ongoing project by photographer Kelly Shimoda. The project, published as a blog, consists of photographs of text messages captured on the phones they were received on. In these photos, we get a voyeuristic look into the lives of the sender and recipient, and are led to question the ramifications of this (fairly) new method of communication, in which the message is inevitably boiled down to its essence due to the 160 character length of an SMS. These photographs are a bit hard to read when shrunken down, so you can click them to view full size or check out the blog, linked at the beginning of this post.

Julia Peirone Photographs Teenagers Awkwardly In Mid-Sentence

julia_peirone7 julia_peirone1 julia_peirone4 julia_peirone5If you’ve ever paused a movie when a character is in mid sentence, you’ve probably encountered some unflattering-looking pauses. Photographer Julia Peirone‘s series More Than Violet is comprised of these moments. Young female subjects are caught rolling their eyes, twirling their hair, and playing with their jewelry, all with faces contorted in conversation.  The images are simultaneously awkward and amusing as we see teenage girls acting in a stereotypical fashion.

To achieve these small moments, Peirone shot hundreds of frames and selected ones that signify a not-a-child but not-a-woman moment. Their clothing, hairstyles, and colorful choice in makeup show their youth. It’s also their mannerisms that give their age away, where they are trying to act confident but are still in the dreaded teenager phase where you look younger than you mentally feel.

More Than Violet is a revealing series of portraiture that captures the uncertainty and uncomfortableness of being looked at and getting your picture taken. Considering that we are so defined by our peer group, these photos offer a truthful look at how we navigate between trying to find our true selves and the self that is “cool.” (Via Feature Shoot)

Tableau de Chasse 1

Pascal Bernier’s art work depicts an ongoing theme about human and animal relationships. This Brussels based sculptor uses and manipulates different representation of animals to take a detached look at social behavior.  Some of Bernier’s work is a social commentary about game hunting (and what is done to the animal’s body after it is killed); Bernier work represents animals in a very sad manner questioning your own ethics on animal rights.
