Ronald Leong – Fibonacci / Rorschach

Posted by PF at 7:10 ...

purpose at work

“We commonly associate human beauty with the face. By adding an essence of the unfamiliar to the face, it becomes something else. The emotional connection changes. People appreciate the face on a different level, stimulating an emotional, perhaps even primordial, reaction that I personally associate with a Rorschach inkblot, or the pattern on a moth’s wings.” – Ronald Leong about ‘Fibonacci / Rorschach’

Friday Quote: Paul Auster

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

“I find it impossible to start a project without the title in mind. I can sometimes spend years thinking of the title to go with the thing that’s forming in my head. A title defines the project somehow and if you keep finding the ramifications of the title in the work it becomes better, I’m convinced of this.”

“These photographs depict the lives of my father, sister, and two brothers, as they take on the burden of my mother’s deteriorating mental state. This work represents an extended look at the physical and psychological currents within their domestic environment that question the sanctity of family life and domestic comfort.” – Lisa Lindvay

Lisa Lindvay, born in 1983, studied photography at the Columbia College in Chicago.

Fee Hollmig – Wo Fuchs und Hase

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

Fee Hollmig - Wo Fuchs und Hase

Fee Hollmig’s series “Wo Fuchs und Hase” explores a special German mental state, which is located somewhere between Todd Hido’s House Hunting and Legoland:

“The area between Hanover, Wolfsburg and Braunschweig: not rich, not poor and well-known for its soberness: my German nightmare. I’m fascinated by the silence, the order and the apparent agreement for distance. On the other side I feel the anxiety of the (cultural) bleakness. I ask myself to what extent this environment and the humans who live there had an influence on me.” – Fee Hollmig

Fee Hollmig, born in 1974, studied photography at the Ostkreuzschule in Berlin.

Corinne Schulze – Treasure Island

Corinne Schulze - Treasure Island

“The Treasure Island naval base has been virtually untouched for more than a decade in San Francisco. In a city where land is scarce and development is dominant, I want to focus on one of the city’s last vestiges.
My project touches on the tension that exists in San Francisco between the environmentally aware residents and the constant push for development.” – Corinne Schulze about her project ‘Treasure Island’

“There are so many possibilities of explaining the world and humans. None of these attempts reaches out up to the last valid insight…but don’t care in the least!”
