The Unaltered Photography of Matt Perrin

Matt Perrin believes in the magic of classic photography.  Perrin decidedly does not use Photoshop or manipulate his photographs once the shutter clicks.  Rather, he fully utilizes the simple features of his camera and experimental lighting to create his dreamy images.  His photographs glow like cosmic abstractions.  Perrin is intentionally ambiguous as to the exact nature of his subject matter.  Rather, he encourages a more open reading similar to abstract painting.  He says of his process:

” Any object seen, in any photograph, was physically in front of the lens when the shutter opened and closed. It’s the twists and turns that have occurred between those points that have brought you here today.”

Justine Khamara Hides Faces In Her Fractured Wood Sculptures

 Wood Sculpture

Australian artist Justine Khamara embeds portraits of people in fractured wood sculptures. By cutting the photographs into pieces and then assembling them either on plywood or weaving them through one another, Khamara changes the experience of the portraits. Taking what is usually one dimensional and making it approachable in a whole new level, Khamara brings a sense of life to the pictures she takes.

“Khamara says she used to cut up photographs and rearrange them into montages that she would rephotograph, ‘but I eventually found the montages to be more interesting as sculptural objects,’ she explains. The act itself, slicing up photos and piecing them back together, has always been something Khamara relished. ‘I loved the butteriness, the physicality of the photographic paper a quality that reveals itself when one slices into the surface of it with a very fine, sharp blade,’ she says.” (Excerpt from Source)

Readers of this blog may already be familiar with Chris Gray whether they’re aware of it or not. This is because he’s designed a couple shirts for Beautiful/Decay Apparel: Sex and Casual Apple. Based in the UK, Mr. Gray has been going off with some seriously good design and illustration work since graduating in 2007. His work is simple and crisp, evoking a certain playfulness through bold fills.
