The Gracefully Surreal Photography of Noell Oszvald

noell oszvald photography4 noell oszvald photography2

Young Hungarian photographer Noell Oszvald creates elegantly surreal images.  Her black and white photographs resemble mid-century fashion photography as much as it does the work of her surrealist influences.  Severe contrasts between light and dark create graceful lines and a definite composition for each piece.  In this way each image is intriguing, not only for its dreamy content but also because they are simply pleasing to look at.  Perhaps what is most surprising, though, is the fact Oszvald’s relationship with the camera is relatively new.  Only twenty-two years old Oszvald has only been using the medium for a little over a year. [via]

Scott Young’s Punk Rock Veggies

scott young photography3 scott young photography1

The work of Scott Young is a playful turn on food photography.  His fruits and vegetables seem not so much delicious as rebellious.  Young photographs various produce covered with studs usually found on clothing.  He mixes the language of punk rock fashion with that of food photography to in a way that each undermines the other.  The simple idea is strangely amusing.  The disparate context of each crash together to create a new one that seems to somehow make sense in its own way.

Scanner Glitch Photography from Federico Ferrari

federico ferrari photography9 federico ferrari photography2

The intentional glitchiness of the photography of Federico Ferrari is at once familiar and surprising.  This series appears to be still life photography interrupted by a scanner malfunction.  A section of each image is dragged across the plane reducing it to simple lines of color.  Small pieces of photographs are severely exaggerated in size.  It abstracts otherwise benign photographs and plays with the viewer’s perception of a simple scene scene.

The Morbid Crystal Covered Sculptures of Nicola Bolla

The work of Nicola Bolla is arresting in its contrasts.  The artist often fashions sculptures of straightforward (albeit morbid) objects that are then covered in sparkling crystals.  The glamorous glitter of the crystal is juxtaposed against the utilitarian nature of many of the objects they cover.  These are further contrasted in these images taken by photographer Sergio Alfredini.  The dilapidated house provides a strangely ideal setting to emphasize these brightly dark sculptures.

The Street Photography of Chris Butler

 

Chris Butler is an autobiographical street photographer based in Los Angeles. He shoots mainly in black and white and was selected as a Leica Explorer in 2011. I recently had the chance to ask him about his process:

“I prefer photographing everyday life. My work is largely autobiographical and about extracting photographic opportunities from the day-to-day. It’s the opposite of studio work, set-building, etc. I don’t like to invent and manufacture; I prefer to seek out what is happening around me, to be improvisational and compel an image out of the moment.”

Haley Morris-Cafiero’s Photos Of People Sneering At Her Weight

Haley Morris-Cafier photography2 Haley Morris-Cafier photography3

In her series titled Wait Watchers, the photography of Haley Morris-Cafiero turns an eye back on those that turn an eye on her.  While creating an image for another series Morris noticed a man “sneering” at her behind her back.  Wait Watchers intentionally captures these reactions – the sneer, raised eyebrow, the frown that Morris says she is aware others make in regards to here weight.  The sadly familiar scenes play out all the time.  However, frozen in a photograph adds another emotional level to the work.

The Fluorescent Cold Photography of Mate Moro

Mate More photography2

The work of Hungarian photographer Mate Moro is cool, nearly cold.  His photographs carry an modern fluorescent cold – even the bodies of his subjects don’t lend much heat.  They nearly seem to act as objects just as other objects in the images interact with the scene.  Slightly surreal, his work is disconcerting like a waking dream in which something is vaguely out of place.  Moro has a talent for composition – coupled with obscured faces the viewers eye never seems to settle on just one place in the photograph.
