Jesse Stone’s digital and multicoloured collages

Jesse Stone’s digital and multicoloured collages

Giulia Guido · 6 months ago · Art

You know Zhangye Danxia Park in China or Vinicunca in Peru, two places far away but known for the same reason: here the mountains look like a rainbow. There is nothing fake about it, this particular colouration is due to the presence of different minerals superimposed and forming different coloured layers.
It is precisely these magical, surreal places that come to mind when we look at Jesse Stone‘s collages. 

Jesse Stone is a graphic designer based in Gibraltar. He honed his craft at Liverpool John Moores University and is now best known for his multicoloured collages.
His works are created digitally, but with a thick grain and small elements that look like something out of a 1960s magazine, they also have a vintage style. 

Through the superimposition of coloured layers, Jesse Stone creates absurd landscapes that sometimes remind us of the desert or mountains, while at other times they are imaginary places, poised between dream and reality. 

Populating these scenarios are small, solitary figures walking or driving vintage cars. We don’t know who they are, where they come from and where they are going, but one thing is certain, we want to lose ourselves with them in these infinite landscapes.

The aerial and conceptual photography by Brad Walls

The aerial and conceptual photography by Brad Walls

Tommaso Berra · 6 days ago · Photography

The popular photographer Brad Walls presented “Detached, in Harmony”, his latest series of photographs inspired by the past two years of pandemic.
The point of view is aerial, which distinguishes all of Walls’ artistic production. In this latest project we don’t have the sensation of looking at the scene through a mechanical eye but with an impersonal gaze that observes women in colorful costumes moving in a desert. The blue sky annuls the depth of the background, while the space is defined only by the choreography of the subjects, and by the shadows that the sun casts on the sand. The bodies become mannequin and all distances are studied and symmetry cancels the spontaneity of movements.

Brad Walls’ “Detached, in Harmony” is one of the few cases of conceptual aerial photography. Not using a handheld camera for conceptual shots is an unusual choice, but it helps represent the emotional distance experienced by the artist during the pandemic.
“The figures are purposefully static, to symbolise how we have been frozen in time over the past 18 months.” commented Walls.
Detached, in Harmony’ placed second in the 2021 Fine Art Photography Awards ‘Conceptual’ category, and placed silver in both the prestigious PX3 awards and Moscow Fine Art Awards of 2021. The artist currently plans to exhibit ‘Detached, in Harmony’ in a solo exhibition in 2022.

Check out the artist’s work on his official website.

The expressions of the human body in the shots of Ophelia

The expressions of the human body in the shots of Ophelia

Collater.al Contributors · 2 days ago · Art, Photography

For some people photography is a hobby, for others, it can also become a profession, but first and foremost it is a form of expression and incredible discovery.
For Feli, aka Ophelia, photography has been gaining importance over time, and for the past year or so it has become part of her daily routine, but for a long time it was simply a seductive and fascinating art form.

Ophelia is 25 years old and lives in Hamburg, Germany. While studying to become a psychotherapist, she plays with analogue photography and creates intriguing portrait photographs.

Her photographic style is intimate, poetic and welcoming, putting the human body at the center of the discourse and using an essential aesthetic to tell the story of the purity of human emotions. The protagonists of her photographs communicate through their bodies, looks and expressions and convey opposite and complementary feelings.

For Ophelia, bodies offer infinite perspectives, variations and possibilities of abstraction. Portraying them in a photograph means emphasising their importance and reflecting their beauty and uniqueness.

See a selection of her shots here and follow her on Instagram to discover all her work.
