BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning - Photographer

I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.. Now its time for KOREA, TAIWAN AND TOKYO.

She says she thinks of the original materials - such as shovels, manhole covers, dumpsters, wheelbarrows and i-beams - as “male” because of their industrial nature. Lane enjoys pushing the dichotomy of feminine and masculine by combining patterns of domesticity with these cold, harsh symbols of masculine blue collar labor.

Lane was raised on Vancouver Island, where she studied fine art and, later, welding. But instead of traditionally using the method to join two pieces of metal together, she employed her painting training, and began using her blow torch as a subtractive tool, slowly burning pieces of steel away to reveal patterns. A believer of extremes, she combined her methods with opposing materials to further understand the relationship between comparing and contrasting. Photos © Foley Gallery. Steen.jpg (680×453)

Kawasaki studied fine art painting at the Pratt Institute in New York City, but left after two years without completing her degree.

He can take boring, everyday objects and make them come alive! In fact, his art can be appreciated for the clever thought behind it. What I love most about his work, though, is that it can be enjoyed by everyone.
