Toy Stories by Gabriele Galimberti

Anyone doing environmental portraiture for their final? Mostly Lauren, because you’re working with people and their possessions! This artist traveled around the world and photographed children with their most prized possessions over the course of 18 months. These might be nice images to look at in terms of arrangement people with objects.

SATURN!

In Photo I we often discuss how photographic seeing is fundamentally different from biological seeing. This is a great example of how photography extends our figurative and literal/scientific vision.

Erik Kessels, 24 Hours of Photos One day of  upload to photo sharing sites, printed.

We’ve talked about Erik Kessels work in various photo classes. Aperture magazine started an Instagram account in conjunction with Kessel’s upcoming exhibition and book. So, that’s right, it’s a social media account displaying photographs from an artist who selected the images from photo uploading sites. It’s great!

experimental processes and possibilities

Cameraless photographer by Alison Rossiter
A darkroom player who uses expired photographic papers from the 19th & 20th century to make pictures. Rossiter employs two processes in her work, time and darkroom play. She seeks out in boxes of expired photographic papers latent images left behind- fingerprints, mold, light leaks etc. – that can only be made by time. Or she selectively develops photographic papers by dipping and pouring, allowing the chemistry to make marks and shapes.

Chemical creations by Mariah Robertson

Robertson’s image making process is all about chemical reactions and chance on photographic paper, led by instinct and informed by her formal experiences in the darkroom. The resulting abstractions are the result of experiments with darkroom chemistry, temperature and time (15hrs per 100′ roll).

Alchemical quest of Ilan Wolff

Wolff’s series 4-Elements uses light (obviously) and the elements air, fire, water and earth. Heat for fire and earth, cold for water and for air the classic technique employing light energy. The images in his 4-Elements series record the chemical interactions that take place when photographic paper is subjected to an element as well as reveal a sensation of the element.

Rossiter, Robertson and Wolff all use performance and chance in combination with darkroom techniques in the processes of their work.

  • Barth’s work is so much about seeing and subverting traditional perceptions of photography as she moves away from subject matter.
  • Her work becomes about observing and the act of looking.
