I don’t believe I…

At the end of the school year at Pratt I had churned out many series of photographs (a few films, but nothing I’m very proud of, but that’s not going to stop me from posting a link to my Vimeo).

 

Here’s one that I did, the assignment was to create a narrative using 4-5 prints, which I called ‘The Last Supper”

My hot Grandparents

In Photography on 01/13/2011 at 12:23 am

My hot Grandparents is a Tumblr I found (click here) where people can upload vintage photographs of their Grandparents studding their stuff. I like the idea of ‘resparking’ their image on the digital world (ha), a vice for vanity our dear Grandparents didn’t get to experience. Upload some pictures of you hot Grandparent! I can’t get enough of vintage home photographs!

VALIE EXPORT

I went to the MET yesterday for my Light Color and Design class, don’t get me wrong, I like Monet, but I really wanted to break away from my class and look at photographs! Thankfully, we all had an hour to explore the museum (not enough time, btw) so I went right to their very very small photography section and found one piece that really stuck out to me by Valie Export. Export is a Austrian based artist (her name is typically written all in capital letters) who put together a series titled ‘Body Configurations,’ which is based upon-

“matching of the curve of the body to the abstract and rational ’roundness’ of an architectural element. This process deflates the body to the status of a spatial component, nothing more than an element in a lifeless sculpture, an element which, in Valie Export’s words, ‘hides its wound’.”

Export is not only heavily involved in photography, but she’s also worked w/ film, body performance, film installations, and so on. Click here for her wikipedia and click here to become a fan of Valie Export of facebook!

I have recently been looking more at Steven Klein’s work, which is mostly all available on his website, stevenkleinstudio.com. An interesting piece I found is called Medical Mistakes, a piece he made for American Vogue
