Aging Gracefully

In an ongoing series of elegant, largely landscape-driven photographs, Brooklyn-based photographer Rachel Sussman focuses her lens on what are definitively the oldest living organisms in the world (i.e. plants, forestry, coral, and fungi that have been around for upwards of 2,000 years). The project, titled “The Oldest Living Things,” has...

Ticklish?

It’s a near universal reflex… First, the tension—every muscle in your body contracts and spasms as you try to ward off your attacker. Limbs kick, swat, and flail about. Eventually, you hunch over, thinking that might help. Then come the fits of laughter. It’s nervous laughter, loud laughter, hooting-howling-squealing laughter, and laughter...

Open Secrets

Photographers have long excelled at making the private public—showing us what we don’t (or, in many cases, can’t) necessarily see; taking us somewhere new, somewhere strange, somewhere that is perhaps off-limits. S. Billie Mandle quietly elegant series “Reconciliation” does exactly that. The Brooklyn-based shutterbug has photographed...

Paper Trail

We just can’t get enough of these lo-fi special effects… The New York-based photographer Brendan Austin uses paint, crinkly paper, and deft craftsmanship to build miniature crags and rugged cliffs. He then photographs his creations—to alarming realistic effects. The resulting series, titled “Paper Mountains,” succeeds on so many levels....

Lights. Camera. Action!

San Francisco-based photographer Christina Seely wants to bring things back down to Earth. Her “Lux” series starts with NASA composite imagery of the entire planet at night. It’s sort of the inverse of looking up at the stars—flickers of light denote people as the most densely-populated regions of the world correlate with those bearing the...

Leftovers, Anyone?

Leftovers, Anyone?

Tis the season…for leftovers. Sure, this stuff only really keeps for one or two days, but California-based photographer Mary Parisi has found another way to put shrink-wrapped ham, spare ribes, and meatloaf to very good use. Approaching her possibly stinky subjects as sculptural objects in their own right, Parisi transforms holiday relics into compositions that lie somewhere between pure abstraction, alien life forms (The Blob, anyone?), other worldly landscapes, and whatever might be lurking in the high school science lab over winter break. Parisi succeeds at capturing the unnatural textures, flakes, and condensation. Lesson learned here: don’t judge a photographic subject by its expiration date—or smell.
