Tyler Los-Jones

Tyler Los-Jones Work from Time Scales. “My recent photographs explore overlaps in technological and ecological timescales. Specifically, I’m interested in the perceived disconnect between timescales and the effect this separation has on our decision-making in relation to ecological issues. These disconnects are represented in the work either through a minor intervention in a found image […]

Adam Frelin

Adam Frelin Work from White Line. “A long line of fluorescent lights were strung along a steel cable spanning the valley between two hills on a cattle ranch in Wyoming. The line of lights slightly bowed to mimic the curve of the valley 50′ below. When seen in this natural context fluorescent light is peculiarly […]

Philippe Ramette

Phillipe Ramette Work from is oeuvre “Philippe Ramette has always appeared to me as a kind of flying saucer in the contested landscape of contemporary art.

Barbara and Michael Leisgen

Barbara and Michael Leisgen Work from Memesis. “In the 1970s, the early works of Barbara & Michael Leisgen came as a counterpoint to conceptual photography, notably that of Bernd & Hilla Becher’s typology school of Düsseldorf. The series that the five Frac pictures are taken from belongs to practices operating since the early 1960s: the […]

Max Marshall

Max Marshall Work from Fabulous Views. “In the series Fabulous Views, I examine through photography how we define nature, and how that idea of nature coexists with human interaction.

We often feel like we’re facing an orchestra playing an expertly arranged and immaculately performed symphonic masterpiece […]

Sanna Kannisto

Sanna Kannisto Work from Fieldwork. “Breaking away from the conventions of nature photography, which typically presents specimens in isolation, devoid of context, Kannisto’s work addresses the acts of staging and image-making. Her photographs, with their biologically correct titles, show not only the breathtaking beauty of her subjects, but also the tools used to achieve the […]

Christopher Ernst Work from his oeuvre. “This group of images are selections from a body of work that spans the past year and a half. I set my focus on the interiors of businesses and public spaces that featured a specific type of mural wallpaper. My goal was to simply show these surreal interiors exactly […]
