The Sherman & Avedon Murals: Large Photographic Portraits

The Sherman & Avedon Murals: Large Photographic Portraits | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Avedon’s work is black and white documentary portraiture of real people, selected by Avedon and his editors as culturally or politically relevant. Sherman’s portraits are fictional characters wearing Chanel outfits, each played by Sherman. Her work is contemporary, produced with digital cameras, green-screen technique and modern printers. Avedon’s work was made in the early 1970’s; it’s still challenging to produce photographic prints at three meters high.

Lost in Publications

Lost in Publications | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Rinko Kawauchi is exploring in her work the poetry of the commonplace. What makes her work special to me, is how she is sequencing and editing her pictures in the books. Most of the time you look at the pictures side by side, so there seems to be some kind of visual or underlying association between the two photos on the facing pages, which can create a total different layer. It’s fun to look for the connections between the pictures, but it can be sometimes near impossible to understand them.
