David Luraschi: Back to the Streets

David Luraschi: Back to the Streets | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“There’s too much information in one’s expression,” says French-American photographer David Luraschi, whose ongoing series of alternative street-style portraits are surreptitious snapshots taken from behind. Joining a raft of instant-image-makers including Daniel Arnold and Dave Krugman, Luraschi, who has been described as the “Sartorialist of sadness,” distinguishes himself from his peers by providing a counterpoint to the self-consciously posed shots peppering fashion blogs every season.

ECAL Library's insight:

David Luraschi completed the master's programme in Art Direction at ECAL in 2013.

Martin Parr & Wassinklundgre The Chinese Photobook

Martin Parr & Wassinklundgre The Chinese Photobook | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

In the last decade there has been a major reappraisal of the role and status of the photobook within the history of photography. Revisionist histories of photography as recorded via the photobook have added enormously to our understanding of the medium’s culture, particularly in places that are often marginalized, such as Latin America and Africa. However, until now, only three Chinese photobooks have made it onto historians’ short lists. Yet China has a fascinating history of photobook publishing, and the exhibition, coproduced by the Rencontre d’Arles and Aperture, will reveal for the rst time the richness and diversity of this heritage.

Amazing grace: Hauntingly beautiful photographs offer glimpse inside crumbling Italian church left derelict for 30 years after earthquake that wiped out entire village

Amazing grace: Hauntingly beautiful photographs offer glimpse inside crumbling Italian church left derelict for 30 years after earthquake that wiped out entire village | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Crumbling into the ground, this is the hauntingly beautiful relic of a church left abandoned for 30 years after miraculously surviving one of the world's most devastating natural disasters.

It was hit by the tragic Irpinia earthquake of 1980, which killed 3,000, severely injured a further 10,000, and left 300,000 homeless in the tiny village of Conza, southern Italy.

Survivors fled to the countryside five miles away, rebuilt the town there, and never returned.

Joseph Ford Aerial

Joseph Ford Aerial | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

During trips to Sicily and Mauritius I had the chance to take aerial photographs, which led me to think about the concept of aerial fashion and diptychs.

The infinite possibilities of aerial photography have always fascinated me: it offers a different perspective and understanding of the city, nature and the world. A car becomes a toy, a wall that would block one’s view at ground level becomes a line, a sand dune becomes a wrinkle in a sweater…

Los Angeles : Agnès Varda in Californialand

Los Angeles : Agnès Varda in Californialand | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The years Agnès Varda spent in Los Angeles saw the development of her free-spirited and protean oeuvre. Mainly known as a filmmaker (Cleo From 5 to 7, Vagabond), Varda’s husband was the Jacques Demy, known for combining forms in musical comedies like The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, and Varda does the same in her own work.

Her photographs are currently on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The exhibition includes the storyboards for her film Lions Love (1970), about a ménage à trois who witnesses the assassination of Robert Kennedy and other tragedies from their bed, through a television set which becomes a key character in the film.

Wafaa Bilal Meditates on Transitional Spaces in “The Ashes Series” | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

It takes a minute to realize Wafaa Bilal’s photographs of familiar images from the aftermath of the war in Iraq are actually miniature recreations the size of dollhouses. Eerily lit, they reflect on the American media’s dissemination of information from Operation Iraqi Freedom, which like Bilal’s photographs, are in many ways staged and manipulated recreations.

Peter Van Agtmael Disco Night: Sept 11

Peter Van Agtmael  Disco Night: Sept 11 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Disco Night Sept 11 is a magnificent hybrid work. Part war story and part family album, it shares with the latter the fabric cover, relatively small photographs, unfolding pages, captions, and it even achieves the same cathartic effect, for soldiers, their families, the United States and the author Peter Van Agtmael himself. A list of scenes that were witnessed but not photographed concludes his undeniably personal essay and study that includes a photograph of a misty Swedish forest which Van Agtmael visited, somber and confused, after his first trip to Iraq.
