The pleasant places in Linda Westin’s photographs

The pleasant places in Linda Westin’s photographs

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 months ago · Photography

The story of Stockholm-based photographer Linda Westin is a bit like that of another artist, Al Mefer; in fact, they both share the same colour rendering and, above all, neuroscience.

After leaving photography, she received his PhD in neuroscience with a focus on super-resolution fluorescence microscopy.

As often happens, a passion always finds the right way to come back to the surface when it turns out to be an authentic need: as chance would have it, Linda has managed to find a way to merge her greatest passions within visual culture, creating poetic and alien-mooded images of pleasant places.

And here, in the darkness, branches, cacti, starry skies and nocturnal visions stand out overwhelmingly, capturing the attention of a lot of followers on Instagram, ready to leave for a psychedelic journey.

Laundry Art, a poetic project by Ho Wing Ka Jimmi

Laundry Art, a poetic project by Ho Wing Ka Jimmi

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 month ago · Photography

Doing laundry is not simply a monotonous act that is part of the daily routine, but becomes the mirror of the customs and traditions of a particular culture, must have thought this artist Ho Wing Ka Jimmi while making his photographic project Laundry Art.

Ho‘s works explore themes such as landscape architecture, society, and human behavior. Hong Kong is the fourth most populated city on the planet and that’s why it has a large number of skyscrapers, but in this case, the artist has chosen to look down.

After a few attempts, Ho focused his research on one of the most common gestures of everyday life, transforming it into a way to represent the unique Hong Kong scenario. The order, the sequence of the clothes and the great attention to detail make us perceive the presence of man, without ever revealing it completely.

The result is shown below.

Berlin, Diane Meyer’s embroidered photographic project

Berlin, Diane Meyer’s embroidered photographic project

Anna Cardaci · 1 month ago · Photography

Photographer Diane Meyer has spent the last few years meditating on the Berlin Wall and the physical and visual divisions between cultures and people. This led to the idea of creating Berlin, a photographic project in which the artist embroiders meticulous stitches with a needle and thread that cover pedestrians, walls, and forests. Each embroidered area represents the old wall, which would have cut or blocked the views now seen in Meyer’s photographs.

The project was born to combine a traditional analogical process with the visual language of the digital image. Diane Meyer has tried to evoke how this continues to be a much-needed presence in the German city today, despite the fact that it was demolished 30 years ago.

Reinserting the Berlin Wall through the embroidery, you see a pixelated view of what lies behind, creating the effect of an almost ghostly trace in the landscape. The materials used by the artist have evolved over time, from direct photography to more multimedia approaches.
His work has long been defined by explorations of the physical, social and psychological qualities that characterize the place. The images of the Berlin project were taken in the city center and in the suburbs where Diane literally followed the old route of the wall to the outskirts of the city.

Thanks to the embroidery this appears as a translucent trace in the landscape of something that no longer exists, but is a burden on history and memory. For the 30th anniversary of the fall of the wall, the exhibition will be open to the public until January 10, 2020, at the Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.

The sensuality of the women portrayed by Sofiia Lupul

The sensuality of the women portrayed by Sofiia Lupul

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 month ago · Photography

The beauty of the women immortalized by the Ukrainian photographer Sofiia Lupul is characterized by a strong taste for detail and nuance. One of the strengths of her images is the emphasis on the languid and sensual gaze, which attracts the viewer, who is enchanted by it. There are also scenes dedicated to the female body, celebrated in its sinuous harmony of forms.

The warm tones of red and orange contribute to conveying a sense of intimacy and delicacy, which is highlighted by details such as, for example, the lace of a brief, the light that caresses the body, a rose held in the hand.

Follow Sophia on Instagram and have a look at our gallery below:
