Ryan Hopkinson pays homage to the human body in his beautiful new film

Ryan Hopkinson pays homage to the human body in his beautiful new film | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Photographer and director Ryan Hopkinson’s style of work is often minimal, detail driven and breathtakingly beautiful. In his new film Only Human he zooms in on the detail once more, focusing on what makes us human in a purely physical sense. Ryan’s short is the last film that’s been created as part of our partnership with Channel 4 Random Acts, where we’ve commissioned a series of films with five of the most exciting filmmakers working in the industry today. As part of the platform’s expansion, Random Acts now has a TV show, in which our films will appear. Ryan’s film appeared in last night’s episode, which you can now catch up with on All 4 here.

Mehryl Levisse | Captations photographiques (2013)

Mehryl Levisse | Captations photographiques (2013) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Mehryl Levisse photographs the body at its most human. Unlike traditional photography, which captures real moments, this young artist produces images from scratch, from his imagination, books, life experiences, family history, music, mythology and many other sources. As opposed to a photographer, Levisse considers his photographs not as something final, but as the trace of something that occurred in the privacy of his studio.

Photographs by Isabelle Wenzel

Photographs by Isabelle Wenzel | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Dutch photographer Isabelle Wenzel's photographs are simple, playful and yet uncomfortable. By bending, twisting, and manipulating the human form into strange positions where the face is generally hidden, the movements of the subject become almost alien-like. In her series, Building Images, she visited a highly organized business area and "opposing this strongly functional environment," photographed figures in non-functional positions. "It was my aim to turn the logic of an office upside down."
