Al otro lado del paraíso: la obra fotográfica de Joel-Peter Witkin En las últimas décadas pocas obras fotográficas, tal vez ninguna, han perturbado más la conciencia del observador que el trabajo de este neoyorquino. A través de su lente desfilan alegorías hiperreales protagonizadas por personas con deformidades físicas, transexuales, cadáveres desmembrados y hermafroditas, que invitan al espectador a sumergirse en una despiadada aventura estética. Siendo apenas un niño, Witkin presenció un suceso, en su natal Brooklyn, que terminaría por influir su obra de una manera determinante: Ocurrió un domingo cuando mi madre nos acompañaba, a mí y a mi hermano gemelo, bajando las escaleras de nuestra casa. Nos dirigíamos a la iglesia. Mientras caminábamos por el corredor hacia la puerta del edificio escuchamos un increíble choque, cuyo sonido se entremezcló con alaridos que suplicaban por ayuda.

El Ojo de la Mente: Cincuenta años de fotomontaje (la obra de Jerry Uelsmann Apocalypse II, 1967 El fotógrafo estadounidense Jerry Uelsmann empezó a utilizar técnicas de impresión compuesta hace ya más de 50 años y en su tiempo, mucho antes del photoshop, sus imágenes conjuraban un aura mágica, una habilidad entre surrealista y divina de manipular los objetos de la naturaleza a voluntad, para cuestionar el sentido de realidad del espectador. Hoy mantienen todavía su fescura estética, su estímulo onírico y su fuerza imaginativa. Desde el final de los cincuenta, Uelsmann empezó a combinar negativos para crear ilusionismos sinéticos de “verdad fotográfica”, paradójicos espejismos en los cuales se refleja la arquitectura de la mente, el ojo interior que vuela hilando la luz.

Thomas Barbèy’s astounding surrealism Today, everyone’s a photographer, grabbing their iPhones for a quick snap. Pictures are posted at a moment’s notice on Facebook and Instagram, so there’s never a void of visuals. Perhaps this image saturation is why surreal photo manipulation is particularly intriguing; smartphone cameras and social networking can’t hold a candle to an artist’s vivid imagination. One such visionary is veteran photographer Thomas Barbèy. Raised in Geneva before working for 15 years in Milan, this inspirational artist has spent more than 20 years perfecting his craft. Some of his techniques include putting negatives together and then photographing them from above, along with traditional retouching and photoshopping. Which of Barbèy’s images is your favorite?

Massive Art Nouveau-Inspired Mural in Montreal For 16 days straight, from dawn to dusk, five highly determined Montreal-based artists (who make up the artist run collective A'shop) worked on a graffiti mural of a Mother Nature-esque Madonna or a modern-day version of "Our Lady of Grace." Inspired by Czech Art Nouveau painter Alphonse Mucha, the crew created this breathtakingly beautiful five story mural using 500 cans of spray paint in over 50 different colors. “We been doing graffiti for a long time but this is our first large project involving the whole team,” Fluke of A'shop told The Montreal Gazette. “We’re always busy with other projects so we’ve never really had time to let [the reactions to] them sink in. But this mural was just so big and also our last of the season. The city gave the group complete control of the project and, luckily, the public ended up loving it. Fluke said that he hopes this project will encourage other city boroughs to consider murals of their own. What is the idea behind this piece? A'shop website

Powerful Portraits of Brave People Revealing Their Insecurities The What I Be Project by photographer Steve Rosenfield is an intriguing study into the human condition. The participants in Steve’s projects bare their souls writing their biggest insecurities on their bodies with markers and then letting Steve photograph them. Their messages tell of fears, self-doubts, and labels for society that stop most of us from living happier lives, but it also shows us the amazing bravery of the participants to share their innermost fears with the world. How many of us have the bravery to admit we were molested, feel ugly, think we are too thin or too fat, and to do it in such a daring public way? The images help us open up to our own inner fears and realize most of the time the worst part of the fear is our own self-loathing, not the real reactions of society.

El arte fantástico de Chris Berens: “Leeuweheart” La fantasía como enlazador de mundos que permite un diálogo entre la “realidad” y los sueños es uno de los paradigmas más apasionantes en la historia de la psique humana. Y la más reciente serie de trabajos de Chris Berens, titulada “Leeuweheart” (Corazón de León) parece confirmar la anterior afirmación: hamsters ataviados de épica sabiduría, jardínes secretos, quiméricas entidades catalizadas a través de la ternura, bosques psíquicos, psicodelia emanando de un algodón de azucar, tótems oníricos y extraños bebes que reposan al filo del sueño inundados de paz. Berens es un peculiar artista holandés que a pesar de dominar las técnicas tradicionales tanto de la pintura como de la fotografía, ha preferido romper con los criterios establecidos por estas dos disciplinas, ilustrando su rebeldía creativa con notable talento. Argumento de la serie “Leeuwehart”: “It all starts with queen Esther. “A royal delivery is expected: Leeuwenhart, the heir to the throne.
