Leo Coulongeat leads us to discover the desert of Peru

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Photography

Léo Coulongeat is a French photographer who makes travel photographs. This time he takes us with him to the heart of another desert region of South America: Peru. In his panoramic photographs we can see the wild beauty of these territories, still to be explored for man. The civilization and its symbols, present in some images of the series, are placed as contrasting elements with respect to the aerial shots of the landscape that basically maintains its wild spirit. Peru remains for the artist a land to explore with passion, to always discover new things and the countless secrets that can hide.

The most significant shot remains that where man is the protagonist without allusions or half terms and jumps into the desert, transmitting an uncontainable freedom.

Beautiful Strangeness, a project by Jack Davison

Beautiful Strangeness, a project by Jack Davison

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Photography

Beautiful Strangeness is a project by photographer Jack Davison, originally from Essex. His talent is out of lines: the photographs in his project don’t respect any rule, rather they try to break the rules. In typical quadratures of documentary language, they alternate with portraits, both color and black and white reports. Even the techniques used by him are out of the ordinary, such as the blurring of his subjects or scratching negatives and the shot tearing after printing.

The project was born around 2014 when, after a trip to the United States, his works were published in the New York Times and in the British Journal of Photography. With an independent and rebellious personality, Jack considers himself self-taught:

“I was never told how to do things, and never given any set boundaries, so I’ve never had a problem with experimenting. “

The important thing for the artist isn’t to tire the viewer and always surprise him with twists and turns with particular images, sometimes destabilizing, but never boring.

The beauty of nature in Tamara Dean’s ethereal photos

The beauty of nature in Tamara Dean’s ethereal photos

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Photography

Tamara Dean‘s photography can’t leave us indifferent. The Australian photographer in her shots expresses the ethereal and fragile beauty of nature, the relationship between man and the natural world and the contrast between conscious and subconscious.

“For as long as I can remember I have yearned to be in nature. When I enter a forest I feel as though I have come home. This deep love of nature informs my life and my art practice.” 

The way she looks is markedly emotional and leads the viewer to have a relationship of intimacy and reflection towards the works. Man and nature come together, so as to rediscover the harmony that has been broken for too long: these photos raise awareness on the theme of environmental protection and are more effective than social and environmental commercials. The contact with plants and vegetation becomes a way to restore an essential balance between man and nature, indispensable for creating a better world.

The Tulip Series, Tom Hegen and tulips fields from above

The Tulip Series, Tom Hegen and tulips fields from above

Giulia Ficicchia · 1 year ago · Photography

How long have you been staring at the cover image asking yourself if you can be certain that there are tulips in the photo? Focus on my words now, because after you probably fell in love with his images of salines from above, Tom Hegen is capable of showing us in his last photographic seriesThe Tulip Series – that yes, those are tulips fields and they’re gorgeous even when they’re photographed from above.

France has its lavender, Holland has its tulips: there’s a great business behind these colorful flowers, just think about the fact that 77% of the bulbs, that are sold more than the flowers, in the world come from Holland. So Hegen decides to show us, from a particular point of view, a passage of this production, where machines and human farmers divide the flower from the bulb. The visual effect is beautiful, colorful and very geometric, even if you are dying to be merged among the flowers.

If after this second article about Hegen you think you can consider him one of your favorite photographers, you must know that there’s a book about his aerial photography, Habitat, and you can pre-order it here.

Munich Pattern, the German minimalism of Felix Meyer

Munich Pattern, the German minimalism of Felix Meyer

Giulia Ficicchia · 1 year ago · Photography

A famous commercial suggested to take off from the protagonist everything, but not that particular model of watch. In this case, I would rephrase it this way: take off me everything, but not minimal photography.

To let you understand better I take as an example one of the last photographic series of Felix Meyer, that, as its title Munich Pattern suggests, is pure minimalism of course, but also it’s dedicated to the city of Munich. Seats become a pattern, running tracks are described just with lines, windows tell us about the facades of the buildings: if the artist hadn’t helped us, we wouldn’t have thought that the places we can see in the photos are from a particular city of Germany. But at the end the observer doesn’t care so much, the photographs are elegant, ordered, few colors but quite vivid ones and they capture its attention.

Who needs watches, when you can have photographs like these ones?
