Fredrik Ödman: Composed Animals

Holy swan-rabbits and fish-monkeys! Composed Animals is an incredible series of composite photographs by Fredrik Ödman. I wish we lived in a world where some of these animals exist (though airborne anteaters give me the heebie-jeebies), however at least we live in one where Fredrik does.

 

 



Yojiro Imasaka

In my first college photography class we were frequently given 1-2 hours of shooting time to leave the photo building and venture out into downtown Chicago to knock out a roll or two of film. I found it enjoyable to be taking pictures during class but always felt slightly defeated knowing that thousands of students before and after me would be venturing out into a small radius around school shooting pictures of the exact same buildings, streets, and parks. What type of skill and eye would it take, to pass by the same thing seen by hundreds of passersby each day and recognize instantly the beauty and uniqueness of an image? It seemed almost impossible. It’s clear in Yojiro Imasaka‘s vertical shots of New York alleys that he posses just such talent. Something incredibly beautiful out of the completely mundane. (via pytr 75)

 

 



Gh0st L1fe

Gh0st L1fe is a photographic collaboration by Allison Reilly and Miguel Farias, documenting the countless hours today’s youth spend staring into computer screens.

Having grown up surrounded by constantly changing visuals and instant gratification, today’s youth has become fixated on providing their minds with a steady stream of fast paced media. This need is filled by a plethora of video and computer games, tv shows, and websites such as youTube and Facebook. With this time wasting comes the inevitable stress of getting work done at the last minute, accompanied by the excuses and inability to take responsibility for their actions. In order to express the destructive process of procrastination, we chose to take long exposure photographs (about 15 minutes) of youth participating in activities that are classified as time wasters. The overall effect of these photographs are an eerie representation of what comes of these activities. Ghostly and sub-human, the subject of the photograph seems no longer consciously present, and their face, bathed in the light of the screen on which they are fixated, is irradicated and blown out in a white glow. The photographs are lonely and isolating, creating an environment in which human interaction is obsolete and the environment one chooses to live in is self contained, complete with the use of headphones to even isolate ones ability to hear.

When I started working on Colossal in earnest last August I did’t anticipate the rash of embroidery that would eventually makes its way here. This work by Daniel Kornrumpf is astounding.
