Thomas Sauvin : Until Death Do Us Part

Thomas Sauvin : Until Death Do Us Part | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Until Death Do Us Part by Thomas Sauvin focuses on the unexpected role cigarettes play in Chinese weddings. As a token of appreciation, it is customary for the bride to light a cigarette for each and every man invited. The bride and the groom are then invited to play some cigarette-smoking games of an unprecedented ingenuousness.

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.

Mesmerising photographs from the sky to bring some perspective to your day

Mesmerising photographs from the sky to bring some perspective to your day | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Benjamin and his team create and share one “Overview” – the site’s name for each image – every day, to highlight the impact we have had on the Earth. “We work with Digital Globe’s database of satellite imagery and then add an artistic orientation to bring out the mesmerising aesthetic that this perspective provides. Each Overview ultimately starts with a thought experiment. We consider the places where man has left his mark on the planet and then conduct the necessary research to identify locations (and the corresponding geo-coordinates) to convey that idea.”

Taos, New Mexico: the lost album of Dennis Hopper

Taos, New Mexico: the lost album of Dennis Hopper | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Drugstore Camera feels like a stumbled-upon treasure, a disposable camera you forgot about and only just remembered to develop. Yet in this case the photographer is Dennis Hopper and the photographs are never before published. Shot in Taos, New Mexico, where Hopper was based following the production of Easy Rider in the late 60s, the series was taken with disposable cameras and developed in drugstore photo labs.

Book : Encerrados 10 years, 74 prisons by Valerio Bispuri

Book : Encerrados 10 years, 74 prisons by Valerio Bispuri | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“Encerrados is not a book on prisons; it is a book on lost freedom, on freedom never had. If you are unable to grasp the difference immediately, it is perhaps because you have led a happy life and for you prison and lack of freedom are concepts that coincide. Yet the difference does exist, and it is anything but subtle.

Strasbourg : Joseph Heinrich Darchinger Wirtschaftswunder

Strasbourg : Joseph Heinrich Darchinger Wirtschaftswunder | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

La Chambre in Strasbourg, France, is holding an exhibition of the color work of Joseph Heinrich Darchinger, the first since his death in 2013. It was no more than eight years after the surrender of the Nazi government when Dardinger set out on his photographic journey through the West of a divided Germany. The bombs of World War II had reduced the country’s major cities to deserts of rubble. Yet his pictures show scarcely any signs of the downfall of a civilization. Not that the photographer was manipulating the evidence: he simply recorded what he saw.

Checking into Honeymoon Hotel with Juno Calypso's alter-ego Joyce

Checking into Honeymoon Hotel with Juno Calypso's alter-ego Joyce | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“I build sets and create scenes for her,” Juno explains on her website, “imaginary bedrooms in which I perform critical studies into modern rites of seduction and beauty, and the laboured construction of femininity. Objects once perceived as radical, innovative, fun and nutritious – an electronic anti-wrinkle mask, computer equipment from the 1980s, baby oil, a tin of cold meat – have become joyless and oppressive. Joyce appears alone, consumed by artifice; her glazed appearance acting as a mirror to the exhaustion felt whilst bearing the dead weight of constructed femininity.”

Meryl Meisler : Purgatory & Paradise, Sassy '70s Suburbia & The City

Meryl Meisler : Purgatory & Paradise, Sassy '70s Suburbia & The City | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Meryl Meisler's Purgatory & Paradise: SASSY '70s Suburbia & The City juxtaposes intimate images of home life on Long Island alongside NYC street and night life – the likes of which have never been seen. Quirky, nostalgic and a bit naughty, it’s a genuine cultural capsule of a decade that captivates today’s generation. The photos and stories illustrate Meryl’s coming of age: The South Bronx, suburbia, The Mystery Club, dance lessons, Girl Scouts, the Rockettes, the circus, school, mitzvahs, proms, weddings, gay Fire Island, the Hamptons, feminists, happy hookers, CBGB, Punks, Disco, After Hours and Go-Go Bars, Jewish and LGBT Pride, street life, home theatrics, holidays, friendship, family and love. She had to photograph it all to make sense of it, hold onto the time, release and now finally share it. The ’70s were sassy, but also sweet, and so was Meryl.
