“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 ...

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 ...

Incandescences Photography

“Incandescences” is a striking collection of unedited images by French photographer Xavier Dumoulin. The series took more than a year to create, as Dumoulin shot after dusk, at specific locations, and under the full moon. Over a period of exposure, the landscapes seem to transform. Electrical lighting turns into a fire-like blur which engulfs cities and villages alike. The dramatic images evoke thoughts of environmental destruction at the same time ...

Surf Texas by Kenny Braun

With over 600 miles of coastline, Texas is now among the top six surfing states in America. The Gulf Coast first saw surfers in the 1960s, and areas such as Padre Island, Surfside Beach, Los Fresnos, Port Isabel, and Galveston now have rich surfing cultures. Surf Texas, a 144-page photo-essay by Kenny Braun, is a coffee table book covering the scene from the late 1990s to the present. Just looking ...

The paperback focuses on the pictures but also brings in a few written passages, including an interview with ...

“Levitation?” Photo Series

In the “Levitation?” photo series, Maryland-based photographer Bairon Rivera explores what might happen if earth’s gravity let loose. His conceptual photography renders outdoor scenes in bright colors to match the surreal situation. People and objects seemingly jump, pedal, or drift into the air and don’t come down. There’s a natural look to their posture and gestures that makes their suspension all the more uncanny.

FotoFest 2014 International Biennial

Photographers Wendy Watriss and Fred Baldwin founded FotoFest after visiting Les Rencontres d’Arles in France. Inspired by the wide-ranging exhibitions, they sought to create a similar experience and dialogue in the United States. They launched FotoFest as a creative and socially engaged platform to foster cross-cultural connections in what they had previously found to be a rather nationally-focused arts scene. This year, the festival celebrated its 15th anniversary of cultivating ...
