Photographer Alejandro captures light in the darkness of the night

Photographer Alejandro captures light in the darkness of the night

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Photography

He is called Alejandro, @alex.zandro on Instagram, and is a photographer who publishes shots on his social media with a strong impact and a unique beauty. We discovered it by chance, captured by the image: a market open 24 hours and a woman standing in front of it, all framed by darkness. The contrast between the dazzling neon lights and the black of the context gives a ghostly, mysterious air to the entire composition. The scene was taken in an American city between Chicago, Los Angeles or New York and we only know this because Alejandro himself specifies it, because for what we see, the photograph could have been taken anywhere, in any city or even on a set. 

The American photographer manages to photograph the light in an almost cinematographic way and, although the details, the silhouettes of the faces and buildings that we can see are very few and essential, the shots can give back to the viewer much more. We can even feel the cold of the road and the heat of the illuminated interiors.

Field of Infinity, evocative images by Reuben Wu

Field of Infinity, evocative images by Reuben Wu

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 days ago · Photography

Reuben Wu is an incredibly talented artist, also known for being a member of the electronic music group Ladytron. The new Field of Infinity project is a continuation of the two previous works Lux Noctis and Aeroglyphs, which had the distinction of using artificial light in an extremely creative way.”During the summer of 2019, I had the opportunity to field-test the new Phase One XT camera platform in Bolivia, a dream location.

During the summer of 2019, I had the opportunity to field test the new Phase One XT camera platform in Bolivia, a dream location of mine.

The technique used is actually very simple, but the effects on the images are very impressive: Reuben uses a specially modified drone to illuminate the landscapes at night. The minimal and ethereal mood is given by the combination of the beauty of the Bolivian landscapes immortalized and almost mystical lighting.

Check out Reuben Wu’s website here.

Tilman Brembs, the Berlin nightlife photographer

Tilman Brembs, the Berlin nightlife photographer

Anna Cardaci · 2 days ago · Photography

German clubs, especially those in Berlin, have always aroused a certain curiosity, especially for tourists. If there’s one thing you can’t do in this city, in many discos or pubs, it’s taking pictures.
The myth of Berghain, with its extreme selection at the entrance, the tyrant bouncer that everyone fears and the fateful ban on using the camera on the phone, can be defined as something that if you do not share it on some social, no one believes it. In a historical moment like this, where you have to document everything to prove that you have been there, Berlin resists.

The German capital has established a kind of unwritten law that everyone respects and, most of the clubs, has strict rules against photography. The main reasons can be summarized in two: the first is certainly to allow guests to enjoy the music without distractions. The second concerns the protection and privacy of clubbers. In fact, inside, you can do more or less what you want, they are like free zones, where everything is possible and everyone can express themselves.

We talk about an avant-garde Berlin where, after the fall of the wall in 1989, young people took control and filled empty buildings and factories with life. What has happened in the city in this period can be seen as a kind of explosion, as the beginning of the last great youth cultural movement in Europe until today. The visual effects and new artistic approaches of life have combined video, film, projection, and music. For the many aspiring artists, the connection with art has offered different possibilities of collaboration and new perspectives and spaces for communication.

German photographer Tilman Brembs made, in those years, a reportage taken in analog. All the photos are displayed in an exhibition that aims to consider the evolution of club culture. Each frame represents unique testimonies, fragments that represent one of the last great youth movements and the enormous desire for freedom. Without any sign of nostalgia, Tilman Brembs portrays a scene that no longer exists, but which was a very significant part of the period of German reunification. His collection contains more than 10,000 images from 1991 to 1997 and, on the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the wall, they were included in the exhibition called “No Photos on the Dance Floor“.

The Chen Family, Fang Tong’s photographic project

The Chen Family, Fang Tong’s photographic project

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 day ago · Photography

The Chen Family is the name of the project by Vancouver-based photographer Fang Tong, entirely artificially constructed thanks to the collaboration of five actors and the creation of a highly realistic set. The work is composed of several scenes that immortalize three generations of rich Chinese immigrants and the tensions that arise between parents and children raised in North America.

At first glance, the family seems to have no problems, but by carefully observing every detail it is possible to deduce that within the family nucleus there are physical and emotional barriers that separate the characters from each other, as opposed to the luxury and comfort of the surrounding environment.

Looking at these images it becomes impossible not to mention the great master Jeff Wall, a pioneer of film sets, a maniac for detail and a great interpreter of the contemporary photographic language.

Take a look at Fang Tong’s Instagram profile here.
