Sensitizing and expanding our perception of what is allegedly a familiar reality is the attitude Düsseldorf-based photographer Andreas Gefeller adopts in his work. His most recent photographs are clearly more formal and structural, and they exhibit striking pictorial qualities. The Japan Series originated on the occasion of the European Eyes on Japan project, within the scope of which European photographers are invited each year to capture their impressions of this Far Eastern country on film. Gefeller takes at least two shots of utility poles vertically from below. In the subsequent digital composite the poles disappear, and the innumerable cables and transformers are converted into an abstract composition against a monochrome background. The absence of points of reference and orientation in these works opens up a new perspective on familiar situations. – [ Extract : Hatje Cantz]

Rhythm can be experienced both aurally and visually, and I am intrigued by this notion of visual cadence. This body of work represents a personal synthesis of these principles. The forms and tonalities in the final images are my rendering of the effects I undergo when translating these minor and major chords. I equate the emotional attributes of these chords with a subdued yet inflective element of a unified sequence. It is the evasive and ever changing element of rhythm that fascinates me, and the work is my interpretation of this delicate balance between harmony and discord: capturing the moment which causes refrain, the pause of introspection, in which the rhythms are viewed through individual terms. When viewed on a fundamental level, rhythm is innate. Specifically, when one contemplates the function of rhythm in such acts as breathing, the blinking of the eyes and the beating of the heart. In essence, the experience of rhythm is an intrinsic aspect in the experience of life. It is through the questioning and exploration of this concept that I arrived at the notion of visual cadence. This body of work is meant to explore the kaleidoscopic nature of perception where terms such as wrong or right do not apply for perception itself changes as much as the individual. ~ [Artist Statement]

Brandt Campbell : “Cinemascapes” Series (Photography)

::

My ‘Cinemascapes’ are an ongoing series of [mostly] street photos shot in such a way that they
appear cinematic and invoke a sense of narrative, which is open to the viewer’s interpretation.

I took an interest in the arts at a very early age, beginning to draw as soon as I could hold a crayon. By the time I entered high school I had already earned a reputation with students and teachers for my ability to draw with photographic precision. From there, my artistic career evolved and branched off in many directions. Aside from a class I took about camera functions and darkroom basics, I lack any formal training and am entirely self-taught. My inspiration comes from all kinds of things, and changes with the seasons. I draw from the aesthetics and moods of music, nature, film, paintings, weather, and people. I absolutely love art; I live and breathe art. If I couldn’t be creative anymore I truly believe I’d have lost my purpose in life, that purpose being to create beauty from inspiration and emotions.

Nazafarin’s work performs as a stage for an event to happen where she searches for a particular moment, one that has passed or is to come. She empties out her thinking by refusing to let any one thought dominate in its visibility… almost everything is left out to compose a world exhausted of life. bio
