Alex Lysakowski’s photographic manipulations

Alex Lysakowski’s photographic manipulations

Collater.al Contributors · 5 months ago · Photography

Alex Lysakowski is a young Ontario-based photographer, his work is a result of his father working in chemical engineering. He grew up flipping through engineering manuals, piping catalogues and business reports filled with photos of monstrous structures in his home office.

He creates images with surreal and uncanny structural interaction within banal surrounding landscapes, eluding to a transitional space between reality and fiction while still retaining realism within the atmosphere of the image.

In the last series “antistructures” he continues his visual exploration of industrial landscapes and manipulation, blending the formal elements of buildings with environmental light and the composition of the structure.

The result is a series of sculptural elements with a whimsical character.

A selection of his works below.

Dryland, the Middle East in the photographic project of Edouard Sepulchre

Dryland, the Middle East in the photographic project of Edouard Sepulchre

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Photography

Edouard Sepulchre is a French photographer who decided to discover the territories between the Maghreb and the Middle East by pedaling miles and miles on his bicycle, one hand on the handlebars and one on the camera ready to shoot. All his photographs, then, he enclosed them in the series entitled Dryland, an imaginary land where everything could be possible, but here time seems to have stopped, leaving everything in half, unfinished. 

Between the sand, the sky and the mountains, however, you can see the evidence of human presence, almost abandoned buildings, signs of wheels on the dirt road, sometimes some peddler or some sign. 

“The American West is at the heart of my fascination with deserts and dry places. A territory that is paradoxically empty but rich in symbols. There everything reminds me of the unfinished, the in-between. Everything is being built up.”

Sam Livm’s young women, free and sensual

Sam Livm’s young women, free and sensual

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Photography

The young women immortalized by Sam Livm‘s camera are carefree, free, beautiful, true and sensual. Sam was born in Manchester but now lives and works in New York, a city that has allowed him to pursue his two great passions, filmmaking and photography. While through the first he tries to give shape to his ideas, the second, which he approached in 2012, allows him to represent the world as it is, almost in a documentary way. 

At the center of his lens, we see above all faces and bodies of young women, the perfect subject to convey that sense of freedom that you can feel at the age of twenty when everything seems possible and you can enjoy every moment of life. 

Over the years his technique has changed and evolved and if at the beginning the only subject of his work were the people he photographed, gradually the spotlight moved on him, transforming the camera in the middle to convey his feelings, his emotions. This change transformed his style, making it real, almost palpable, but at the same time intimate and unique. 

Below you will find our favorite shots, to find out more about Sam Livm go to his site.

The minimal and expressive self-portraits of Zezn

The minimal and expressive self-portraits of Zezn

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Photography

The perfection of the construction of the image is the point of strength of Zezn, a Japanese photographer who has decided to be the subject herself, indeed, the only subject of her shots. The ivory white skin and long flowing black hair lend themselves very well to black and white, a technique that allows Zezn to show all his skill in calibrating, creating and balancing the points of light with those of shadow. 

The Japanese photographer creates intricate and complex shapes playing with the lines of her body that moves freely in space and that we often see entirely, while other times we see only an arm, a few strands of hair or part of the back. 

Looking at her shots I will give you a sudden sense of lightness, suspended in time, like a feather that escapes from resting on the ground.

Edgar Berg, ​harmony becomes images

Edgar Berg, ​harmony becomes images

Claudia Fuggetti · 5 months ago · Photography

Looking at the images of photographer and filmmaker Edgar Berg you can only be immediately impressed: it almost seems that every scene has been extrapolated from the choreography of a wonderful and elegant dance.

Very active in the field of fashion, Edgar Berg boasts numerous collaborations with several important brands and works mainly between Paris and Hamburg. His great search for the most suggestive light atmospheres and original compositions contribute to generate a sort of continuous tension in the viewer, who feels the emotions of the characters and is fascinated by them.

The sinuosity of the bodies is enhanced by the thought of the poses, which appear almost choreographed, playing with the environments, with the ambivalence and with everything that can make a difference, the result is harmonious images that translate reality into delicate poetry.

Looking at this gallery it will be difficult that at least one of his photographs does not catch the attention, for all the rest you can visit the site of the artist, which you can find here.
