New York: 31 essential items by Neil Winokur

New York: 31 essential items by Neil Winokur | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Neil Winokur is an archetypal urban specimen, late twentieth-century model. Born in Queens, New York, in 1945; educated in city public schools and at the Bronx campus of Hunter College (where he got his BA in 1967 with a major in math and physics), Winokur has lived in New York nearly all his life save for the requisite hippy year (1971 in his case) in San Francisco. “I function best here,” he says.

Pej Behdarvand Deathbed

Pej Behdarvand Deathbed | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Despite the project name, the images of these salvaged cars photographed by Pej Behdarvand are not documented in direct allusion to the deathbeds of humans, morgues, or even crime-scene photos. When Behdarvand stepped foot into the auto junkyard world, with its churchly order of rows upon rows of irreparable machines, he was entering a kind of purgatory. The vehicles in this photo series are depicted as if museum objects, yet unlike museum objects these wrecked cars are not to be physically preserved intact for posterity, but will be crushed for reuse in another form.

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Chema Madoz

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Chema Madoz | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

A buried guitar . The universe as the  target of an arrow. A cloud in a cage. Welcome to Chema Madoz’s world. The Spanish photographer specializes in item diversion. The images looks simple yet nothing is left to chance. If the works are untitled, the viewer is  quickly  taken into the game, looking for the double meaning of the images, and the details which will disturb the logic of the image. In his still lifes, Madoz plays with the words, shadows and shapes.

Garcia de Marina

Garcia de Marina | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

García de Marina springs up from an egg shell two years ago, when he's able to go through private shyness for showing it through the social networks. He was born with the only goal of sharing a passion, the desire to communicate his unusual vision of life. Pictures shown are deeply irreverent with real, where every daily object is reinvented, a work that renovates objects into new identities. He emerges from a critic posture, from necessity of observation, and he goes around reality with imagination and hope.

The simple things are the most beautiful, we might tell ourselves as we open this book. Or perhaps we remain puzzled by what we see.

Interview · Dieu Tan

Interview · Dieu Tan | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Sydney based Dieu Tan is a man of few words and many, many talents. It has been difficult to know where to start with this story because I must say, he is such an interesting and multi-faceted character… it’s quite difficult to describe his varied creative endeavours succinctly!  I’ll give it my best shot…

Mainly, Dieu is a photographer. He’s well known for his masterful skill in still life and product photography.

Ezmer Obsolescence | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

These objects tell the story of a generation: the sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties. They were used in the daily lives of a household, in each family, bringing, comfort, modernity, leisure and emotions. They were quickly abandoned and forgotten.

Marie Rime's stunning series of characters wearing board game masks | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Swiss photographer Marie Rime is just about to graduate from her BA in photography at ECAL. In spite of her young age she’s managed to accrue an impressive body of fine art photography that experiments with unorthodox costumes crafted from everyday materials (in this case board game pieces).

Photographer Fabian Oefner tricks the eye at MAD Gallery in Geneva

Photographer Fabian Oefner tricks the eye at MAD Gallery in Geneva | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Every little boy's dream? Perhaps. But these scrupulously photographed explosions are not at all what they seem. Fabian Oefner, the Swiss photographer acclaimed for capturing unseen micro-seconds in time, has swerved in another direction for these most recent snapshots, on show until May 2014 at Mechanical Art Devices (MAD) in Geneva.

Recovered Suitcases From an Insane Asylum

Recovered Suitcases From an Insane Asylum | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Photographer Jon Crispin first laid eyes on the Willard Asylum for the Insane in the early 1980s.A friend who was a preservationist asked Crispin if he had ever seen the abandoned building during a drive back from a wedding by Seneca Lake in New York. Crispin remembers clearly the moment they drove up to the 1860s building.  

“It was the most evocative thing I had ever seen,” Crispin recalled. “It was sitting high above Seneca Lake on a circular driveway and it was abandoned. All my life, even as a young kid I was always interested in getting into old buildings that were boarded up, or entering places where I shouldn’t have been, and I decided I wanted to photograph it.” Eventually, this interest led to Crispin being awarded a grant from The New York State Council on the Arts to spend a couple of years documenting some of the 19th-century New York State Insane Asylums.
