“Metamorphosis” Photo Book by Brian Rose

After photo-documenting gentrification in Time and Space on the Lower East Side, photographer Brian Rose turned his lens uptown to focus on the Meatpacking District. He collected his vision in Metamorphosis, pairing his impressions of the Meatpacking district from 1985 beside newer images from 2013. In the 80s, Rose says, the neighborhood would change its face three times in a single day. Before dawn, butchers worked in the meat markets, ...

“Them & Theirs” Photo Series

Ryan Schude began photographing Them & Theirs in 2001, while he was still a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. Then, he restricted the project to people who have cars with vanity plates and collected around fifteen images. After he graduated, he left the photo series alone for a while. But, then, in 2010, he returned to the idea, shed his previous limitations, and began taking many more photographs ...

More Than The Rainbow

Taxi driver-turned-photographer Matt Weber is the inspiration for Dan Wechsler’s film “More Than The Rainbow.” Both an informative documentary and a meditation on art and photography, the film follows Weber’s career – he began taking photographs in 1978 – and chronicles the diverse sources from which the artist draws inspiration. A longtime New Yorker, Weber searches for genuine moments among the cheering, frenetic and tireless crowds that swarm the streets. ...

Found Object Mosaic Mandalas

The Mosaic Mandala Series: Native Utah Elements is a collection of found object designs by Matt W. Moore. A divergent move from the artist’s usual urban artwork, the new series collects natural totems from Powder Mountain and the surrounding valleys in Eden, Utah. Moore then placed the pieces in geometric arrangements, a process he describes as being “like playing caveman Tetris.” Inspired by and created at the artist residency SUMMIT, ...

Boom City Photographs Look Inside Fireworks

Photographer Andrew Waits’ Boom City photo series examines fireworks, smoke balls, and pop it rocks that have been cut open so viewers can see the powder and string. Set against a black background, the color and texture of each explosive stands out just as much as a firework in the night.

“Kamil Leaving” Photo Series

Returning to his homeland after an eight-year stay in England, Kamil flew to Poland, borrowed a camper, and ventured back to the UK to collect his belongings and go. Polish photographer Przemek Skrzypek was his driver. Skyrzpek’s new photo series, Kamil Leaving, documents Kamil’s particular story as an art restorer on the move and captures the day-to-day transformation inherent in traveling. The pictures show Kamil doing ordinary things against an ...

A Glimpse Into the Scrublands of Europe

“Scrublands” gives a rare glimpse into the lives of people who French photographer Antoine Bruy met while hitchhiking throughout Europe. Reminiscent of Eric Valli’s “Off the Grid” photo series and Benoit Paille’s documentation of the Rainbow Gathering, the images follow individuals and families to their outposts on the edge of farmland and wilderness. Whether by choice, because of poverty, or through some combination of the two, the people Bruy encountered ...

Published by Terre Bleue Editions, the 268-page book collects Nègre’s artwork in eleven thematic chapters, ranging from “Solar” experiments to images of “Women in Resistance.” The collection includes both color and black and white shots documenting ...

Photography and Street Art Meet in Brooklyn

Landline is an imaginative photo series by the Brooklyn-based artist Aakash Nihalani. The subjects are hipsters in plain white tees. Seemingly punctured by geometric forms, the people in the images are visually connected to one another in an oddball-romantic way. Though the shapes may at first look like Photoshop editing, they are actually neon tape alliques. Reminiscent of comic books and pop art, the surreal portraits make up a playful ...
