The Boston Globe has been posting a great collection of photographs from the disasterous BP oil spill. While these images are beautifully taken they are constant reminders of our greedy need for more oil and our relentless desire to make a profit with disregard to how our actions will effect our future. More images after the jump.
The first descriptors that come to mind when viewing the photography of Andrew Newson are: still, quiet, repose. This UK based photographer holds still moments of peace to take in his rich and varied imagery; whether it be the hidden treasures of Sussex or the splashes of red from seaside to city.
The characters in Theis Wendt’s paintings are looking for something. Taking place at night, his explorers throw ghostly beams from flashlights. What are they looking for? Houses radiate from secret sources. Giant boats rake the coastline with spotlights. The subject seems to be a philosophical kind of looking, and reminded me of Pink Floyd’s Ummagumm album cover.
Photographer James Loveday produces beautifully polished images for both fashion spreads and his own personal projects. What strikes me about Loveday’s work is that, regardless of whether he’s photographing golden perfection or morning-after mayhem, his work maintains a richness that you can almost reach out and touch.
Eighteen year old photographer Lucie Malbéqui uses her camera to capture slices of time. She emphasizes her youth and its brevity by using film to record “a piece of atmosphere, a piece of time.” Malbéqui feels that with film, she eliminates some of the artificial elements that are nearly always present in digital photos, instead favoring the raw and imperfect images she can create by allowing the sun’s light to preserve a moment.
Bologna based graphic design studio Emmaboshi has a brand new website touting some beautiful work. They have a talent for diffusing large amounts of information into interesting forms that become both desirable & accessible.
Eric White is a painter living and working in Brooklyn. He creates work that challenges the body with differing proportions, repetition, and color. The work is exquisite in every sense, and owns the world it lives in completely.
