Anja Niemi

by Xavier Speeleveld

Norwegian photographer Anja Niemi combines self-portraits with staged narratives to create stunning cinematic result. The images feel like scenes from old movies, with talented photographer cast as all the characters. Niemi refers to herself as a ‘one-man band‘, as she always works alone. ‘I love every aspect of creating an image and would not want to give any of it away.’ Born in Norway in 1976, Niemi studied at the London College of Printing, and Parsons School of Design in New York. Her recent series ‘Starlets’ (above) and ‘Do Not Disturb’ (below) feature a series of beautiful, sometimes iconic interiors that act as a perfect backdrop for her aesthetic vision. Amazing !

Erin O'Keefe

by Xavier Speeleveld

This series of photographs is about the relationship between object and image. These objects are made from pieces of photographic images, and rely on the three-dimensionality depicted in these fragments to create the illusion of a sculptural object. The deadpan presentation of the object, and the directness of its construction are in conflict with the persistent uncertainty of its spatial condition.

Miler Lagos

by Xavier Speeleveld

 

Trunk-like compositions created by colombian artist MILER LAGOS are made from layers upon layers of densely stacked newspaper clippings, uniting in formation of giant, fallen tree branches. ‘fragments of time’ ironically reinterprets the source material; the paper used becomes the artistic materialization its origin, transposed from foundation to creative application.

A+ Architecture

by Xavier Speeleveld

 

At the site of domaine of O. in montpellier, france stands the ‘jean-claude carrière theatre’ designed by A+ architecture.the bold, vibrant culture box is situated amongst a forest of pine trees just off an esplanade, offering a welcome, and suited contrast to its natural setting. the fiery red volume is enveloped in a harlequin patterned façade–which speaks of the building’s function–that is made from cuts of wood strategically arranged to create the motif. this woven exterior also features colorful diamond-shaped lights embedded within, that further reference the expressed geometries as well as offering dynamic visuals by night.

Patrick Strattner

by Xavier Speeleveld

german photographer Patrick Strattner fantasizes about ways to make everyday life easier and a little more enjoyable in ‘prototypes’. the series of images depict smart, full-scale constructions of abstracted objects, made up of various gadgets and devices. their humorous approach lend whimsy to mundane tasks, like brushing both the tops and bottoms of your teeth, carrying groceries, and drying out soggy arm-pit stains on t-shirts. strattners’s creative process includes conceptualizing the idea for the quirky object, planning out its execution and construction, and finally photographing it. the absurd inventions explore the idea of a product-driven society, and encourage the audience to fantasize about the playfulness in the seemingly ordinary.

Ryan Hewett

by Xavier Speeleveld

Contrary to the tradition of verisimilitude, for Hewett the portrait is not about capturing an external likeness of a subject, but rather as a portrait to an inner journey of self-exploration. Hewett does not use sitters or models in an effort to produce a realistic depiction. Although photographs constitute his starting point, he relies principally on the free-blowing process of memory and creative imagination. His portraits encapsulate the truism: that the subject matter of all art is, ultimately, the self.
