<strong>Patty Carroll: Portraits of Domestic Life</strong>

Patty Carroll’s first solo exhibition at Gallery XII in Los Angeles. Bright colors and pastels of a modern soap opera – white, pink, orange, yellow – or black bodies of decomposed models, faces disappearing under accumulations of objects, flowers or good-natured decoration; the subjects of the photographs are presented in domestic environments that deny them […]

Elizaveta Porodina : Dreaming in color

An internationally renowned fashion photographer, Elizaveta Porodina is particularly dazzling in her mastery of photography. Neon colors, silhouettes drawn as if with the tip of a pencil, reflections, brilliance or transparencies creating a unique pictorial impression… her universe is thus described as dreamlike and surreal. Indeed, her work is sometimes reminiscent of Man Ray’s photographs, […]

TODD HIDO 

“The black sun of melancholy”1 Desolate landscapes, sad, worried faces, golds emerging from grey dawns or black twilights… Todd Hido’s new photographs are imbued with melancholy. Bare trees struggling in the mist, fallen trees blown down by the wind, deserted horizons and roads… it is the solitude (of beings and of nature) that emanates from […]

Mulhouse Biennial: Cosmic and Photographic Magic

The cosmos, often referred to as the cradle of humanity as much as its destination, does not escape the gaze of photographers, and this is what the Mulhouse Biennial of Photography is highlighting this year through its title, “Corps Céleste.” Thus, the luminous body of the photograph meets that which reaches us from the stars. […]

CHEMA MADOZ

Created in 1960 in Paris, on the initiative of Raymond Queneau, OuLiPo (Ouvroir de littérature potentielle) set itself the task of discovering new potentialities of language and modernizing language through writing games. Born two years earlier, Chema Madoz could not have been part of the adventure. Situated on the borders of surrealism and the absurd, […]

Games of gender and gaze at Pixy Liao

In Pixy Liao’s work, the attitudes and interactions resemble the traces of an erotic role-playing game with a wry sense of humor. Partly because the staging, the bold colors, and the apparent cord of the photographic trigger evoke a dialogue between professional and amateur images. Partly because the roles in question contradict the representations we […]

NAMSA LEUBA, COMPOSED IMAGINARY

Discovering Namsa Leuba plunges you into an imaginary world of Afro-descendant identities. One must first become acquainted with all the colors, those of the sets and costumes, the make-up and the skins, without being surprised by the magical force of the whole. For it is through this that a hybrid narrative between vernacular reality and […]

NADINE IJEWERE, THE BEAUTY OF SHADES

Can fashion photography become a manifesto? With Nadine Ijewere, without a doubt. From her pictures, we retain the bright colors and the cheerfulness of the models, the poses in movement and the vitality of the groups in their interactions with their environment. For fashion photography, however, she chooses the diversity of bodies and identities. The […]

GRACIELA ITURBIDE – MYTHICAL

Suspended between the sky and the earth, the here and the elsewhere, the charred lands and the sidewalks or the clouds shrouded by birds, Graciela Iturbide’s keen and piercing eye has caught the strangeness of the world. This eye, on the lookout for the incongruous, for the poetry lurking in the ordinary, has made the […]
