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.

Julien Legrand’s pictures explore the chance moments of everyday life, with a focus on pedestrians. For him, streets and public spaces are inexhaustible sources of inspiration. He always has a camera with him and takes pictures almost every day, anywhere, at any time. He operates spontaneously, instinctively, creating a visual record that does not seek to relate or denounce anything; he prefers to let the imagination run free. The idea of being suffocated by a repetitive and impersonal daily life frightens him, shooting the streets is his way of constantly keeping in touch with the world around him.

“For several years, I’ve spent most of my free time wandering in the streets and watching what is happening around me, camera in hand, ready to shoot. What is interesting to me is the unscripted nature of everyday life, often more poetic than it appears when seen in a way.

I do not have any aim, I take what the chance gives to me. I have always been more drawn to black and white. I like its out of time feeling and its distilled essence… “ – Julien Legrand

Trent Parke : ‘Dream/Life & Beyond’ Series (Photography)

::

“Parke has one of the most vivid visual signatures in Australian photojournalism. His photographs don’t observe life so much as contain its contradictions within dense, idiosyncratic tableaux.” R McFarlane

Trent Parke is considered one of the most innovative photographers of his generation. His exhibition Dream/Life and Beyond is an ongoing document of the streets of Sydney which began when, at the age of 20, he moved from his hometown of Newcastle to live in the capital of New South Wales. In trying to deal with his sense of loneliness at the time, he took to the streets with his Leica camera and began to create a picture of Sydney unlike any other we are accustomed to seeing. As he says of his practice: “I’m always trying to channel personal emotions into my work.

That is very different from a lot of documentary photographers who want to depict the city more objectively.” Dream/Life and Beyond presents a vision of Sydney seemingly peopled with spirits and shrouded in the mythical. What is so striking about the photographs is the way Parke has played with the harsh Australian sunlight, enhancing the dramatic qualities of light and shadow to create a dreamworld that elevates these works beyond the mere document.
