Inception of Desire, everyday objects become conceptual art

Inception of Desire, everyday objects become conceptual art

Giulia Guido · 8 months ago · Photography

A wallet, a computer, a carton of McDonald’s chips. With the photo series entitled Inception of Desire, Korean photographer Claire Lee has taken everyday objects and made them pieces of art. Playing with backgrounds of the same tone as the objects, with lights and shadows and, above all, with shapes and lines, Claire seems to have managed to ennoble common things that we all have. 

Not the first time that the 1993 photographer worked with these subjects, even in the previous series Domestic Calculus had immortalized a book, a brush, a glass, in short nothing extraordinary. 

Claire’s skill and talent is to see in something accessible to all new, unpublished and surprisingly beautiful aspects and to be able to capture them in a shot.

Romance, falling in love according to Jean Pierrot

Romance, falling in love according to Jean Pierrot

Claudia Fuggetti · 8 months ago · Photography

What is the first photographic book by the Slovenian photographer Jean Pierrot about? Romance, this is the title of the project, represents a visual reflection on the theme of falling in love with an aesthetic and nostalgic poetics.

Jean’s analogs represent sensual portraits and delicate close-ups that have the task of “demystifying an intimate process that we all unwittingly undertake at least once”, or being in love. Although his work is very aesthetic, the artist tries in some way to get closer to give a rational explanation to what, simply, can not be entirely divided and dissected in an analytical way.

You can buy Romance’s self-produced publication here.

It’s Called Ffasiwn, creativity takes shape

It’s Called Ffasiwn, creativity takes shape

Claudia Fuggetti · 8 months ago · Photography

It’s Called Ffasiwn, is the Welsh name of the artistic project of photographer Clémentine Schneidermann and art director Charlotte James, of the children of the valleys of South Wales, consisting of portraits of children from South Wales.

The two artists organized creative workshops in youth centers where participants were taught the basics of fashion styling, design and tailoring, in order to encourage them to experiment with garments purchased in charity stores.

This is how the photographic project was born, which is characterized by an accurate composition, made harmonious by colors, combinations and precision.

“The photographs show that while the Valleys wear the marks of time, they’re no match for the elixir and hope of a new generation: the project is a celebration of this”.

It’s Called Ffasiwn’ will be on display until 25 May 2019, at the Martin Parr Foundation, Bristol.

Noémi Ottilia Szabo: imperfection is uniqueness

Noémi Ottilia Szabo: imperfection is uniqueness

Claudia Fuggetti · 8 months ago · Photography

Noémi Ottilia Szabo is a Swiss fashion photographer who has published her work in several magazines including Vogue Portugal, Cake Magazine, L’Officiel Ukraine and others.

On more than one occasion the photographer has said what is important to her:

“Perfection is ugly – I want to see scars, failure, disorder, distortion. My main source of inspiration is my model, the light, the location I’m shooting in. It’s different on every shoot”.

Each project takes on a different look, depending on the situation and context in which it was set, but the common element in all its images is to recreate a soft atmosphere, which touches the subjects with light.

Lonely Astronaut, solitude in Karen Jerzyk’s photographs

Lonely Astronaut, solitude in Karen Jerzyk’s photographs

Claudia Fuggetti · 8 months ago · Photography

During the journey of life, we all felt at least once like the protagonist of Lonely Astronaut by Karen Jerzyk‘s project. After buying an authentic vintage space suit in 2017, the artist embarked on her journey around the world, taking pictures of women in suits.

Her subjects wander alone in deserted and evocative environments, sometimes they can find comfort reading a book or talking on the phone. These images, beyond their aesthetic beauty, represent the metaphor of the existential path of the human being, who after all, faces their own inner journey. One of the most poetic shots is the one in which the astronaut chases butterflies:

“I think at one time or another, we can all relate with The Lonely Astronaut, things in life can get bad, but there’s still no denying the beauty and wonder of the world, and we need to push on and keep exploring”.

Butterflies represent dreams and remind us that, despite everything, life can still surprise us. You can find out more about the artist’s work on her website, which you can find here.
