Making Pictures

about
Alexander Coggin has an utterly unique way of looking at the world. Now based in London after several years in Berlin, the American is happiest wandering the streets with his camera, feeding his visual curiosity and capturing scenes and subtexts he happens across. With an extraordinary eye for the unusual, the unexpected and the unlikely, he captures fantastic combinations of colour and texture. The subjects change according to what he finds, but he conjures weird and wonderful compositions from even the most everyday scenarios. A trained actor, his theatrical training still influences his image-making – he is interested in backstory, body language, and the gap between perception and reality. His bold use of flash adds a magical realism to his pictures, which wouldn’t look out of place on the big screen.

about the artwork

about the artwork
Britische Kultur in Hamburg für Zeitmagazin. (Text Susanne Mayer | Styling Hannah Godde) Kaum jemand außerhalb von England, der sich so viel Mühe gibt mit dem Englischsein wie in Hamburg. Hier ist Englischsein eine Manie, ein Gestus, der sich der einst so imperial herrschenden Macht anschmiegt und sie zugleich zu übertreffen sucht.

Joseph Ford

about
Joseph began his adult life sensibly enough by studying French and Italian at the University of Cambridge and the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, then horrified his parents by moving to Paris to be a photographer. 

His personal work has won him numerous awards and has inspired films and campaigns for LVMH, Missoni, Lacoste and many others. He is regularly featured on Colossal, Fubiz, PDN, Design Boom and other art/design blogs.

His work concentrates on optical illusions. With his Aerial Fashion series he blended landscapes shot from helicopters with still life close-ups of clothes. His Knitted Camouflage series uses custom hand-knitted sweaters to make people disappear into their environments. 

His work is in various private collections and in the permanent collection of the Hamburg Art and Design Museum and the Musée d’Art Urbain & Street Art in France, and has been exhibited as part of numerous festivals, including the Zürich Aufsehen festival and the Andorra Land Art Biennale. 

Joseph is based in the UK.

about the artwork
Since my first explorations of aerial photography I was fascinated by the way that patterns appear in nature or architecture that reminded me of other textures, other materials. When you're in the air, cars become toys, tall walls are reduced to lines on the ground, buildings become geometric shapes… During the process of exploring this change of perspective, it became clear that a sand dune could become a fold in a piece of clothing, a zipper could become a train track. I spent days researching areas I wanted to photograph from the air, then even more time finding ways of combining aspects of the landscape with details of clothing.  I’ve worked with clients including Missoni, Lacoste, Pepe Jeans London and Hennessy on this project.

Eva Roovers

about
Eva Roovers
Originally from Amsterdam, she currently lives and works in London while studying for an MA at the Royal College of Art.
With a background in fine art, her stills photography is often described as sculptural or with painteral qualitities. Her practice is a mixture of editorials and commercial assigments by fashion brands that tend to like her artistic approach and her personal practice has her works shown in galeries and artfairs in Europe.

 

about the artwork
Series: Moving Moments in Time Moving Moments (first 5x red circle/yellow/blue images) in Time was made after Roovers was selected by FOAM for the exhibition Jong&Talentvol in the Mondriaan museum in Netherlands. She was asked to respond to an early figurative work by the master Mondriaan. In her selected work Roovers noticed one woman, walking by twice, as if time had just passed her by. She looked the same, just grown older. Roovers got fascinated by the nature of painting versus that of photography. Where time is inherent in the process of painting, photography always captures just a fraction, a snap. She wanted to embed this element in an abstract series. She build an installation of geometrical shapes and with bright colours, mirroring elements and transparent surfaces. Constructed with 2d materials and without the use of digital manipulation. The resulting sculpture now reviews itself in the mirror.  Like we all do sometimes, and wonder where those new lines and creases came from.. All of a sudden.. It seems. Series: Planes (6 last images) was an assigment by Baars&Bloemhoff for their new materials. Roovers got card blanche to work with their materials. The whole series is based in balancing. Compositioning with flattened surfaces but simultaneously keeping a keen eye for tactility, she works much like a painter.  The results are images that seem to have been quieted, compositions that balance and staging that does not appear to exist in the same time and space. (Without the use of digital manipulation) It is a subdued, absurdist effect of recognition and detachment that explores our daily life in a fresh and playful manner.

Peter Franck | Atelier Glücklichundschön

about the artwork
Real tintypes ( wet plate collodium ), 18x 24 on aluminum. When one speaks of photography that transgresses the boundaries to painting and the painterly, one tends to mean works in which the structuring effect of colour has priority. In the works of Peter Franck's shown here, the crossing of the boundary between the two is also apparent – although it defies description in conventional terms. This and their narrative character are what determine the quality of these works. Elements from comic strips, the history of film and art as well as everyday situations collide.

Karen Faurie

about
Karen Faurie is born in 1993 in Saint-Nazaire, Loire-Atlantique, France. Graduated with a BTEC higher national diploma in Photography and a Master of Photography at the École Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière in Paris, Karen has enriched herself with valuable experiences in photographic advertising production and assistantship. In her spare time and travels, she devotes herself to a singular photographic practice, combining landscapes, scenes of life and still life. Nature, materials and forms obsess her, both from far and near. In her photography, she seeks to transport the viewer into her world and her emotions.

about the artwork
Along the walks in the forest and in the countryside, some treasures are hidden among the vegetation. We wait patiently for these flowers to dry, to reveal their final beauty. They are then arranged, simply and alone, facing the lens and the falling light of the end of the day. Colors change as the sun goes down and create a color palette that invites you to dream.

about the artwork
CHROMA I-X   It’s Shiny, It glimmers. It’s Transparent, but full of Colors. It keep things Fresh and holds so many things together that we are use every single day.    It surrounds us in our modern life in many ways, but as we now know:  It’s a trap.    The Series “CHROMA I-X” demonstrates the Mystical, Colorful Effect of Plastic – which is only visible in a certain light situation that we don’t always see in its daily use.      Photography and Idea: Tobias Bärmann  Styling: Steffi Bühlmaier  Postproduction: Studio Wolfram    http://tobiasbaermann.de/chroma
