Roman Signer — Galerie Art : Concept — Exposition Past: January 8 → February 19, 2011 Since the mid-seventies, Roman Signer has showed and re-enacted paradoxes. The mini-shows and non-happenings generated by his sculptures, installations and performances and documented by his videos and photographs form a permanent questioning on the economy of entertainment. With a light approach, his work tackles modern concerns such as efficiency, performance or productivity, as well as our deeply rooted obsession with functionalism. Renowned for his “Action/Sculptures”, Signer has often been defined as a pyrotechnical artist or even given the label of “explosion-artist”, but he refuses to be circumscribed by the abundant literature and many remarks circulating on his work.

The animals in some of these photos may look like they’re freezing, but that’s not 100% certain – in most cases, the photographers are probably colder than the animals that they’ve photographed. Mammals like foxes, cats and other furred critters have to maintain constant body temperatures, so they often accrue stores of body fat and grow additional coats of winter fur to help themselves cope with the cold.
Gordon Matta-Clark Gordon Matta-Clark (born Gordon Roberto Echaurren Matta; June 22, 1943 – August 27, 1978) was an American artist best known for his site-specific artworks he made in the 1970s. He is famous for his "building cuts," a series of works in abandoned buildings in which he variously removed sections of floors, ceilings, and walls. Life and work Andre Kertesz / Biography & Images - Atget Photography.com Perhaps more than any other photographer, Andre Kertesz discovered and demonstrated the special aesthetic of the small camera. These beautiful little machines seemed at first hardly serious enough for the typical professional, with his straightforward and factual approach to the subject. Most of those who did use small cameras tried to make them do what the big camera did better; deliberate, analytical description. Kertesz had never been much interested in deliberate, analytical description; since he had begun photographing in 1912 he had sought the revolution of the elliptical view, the unexpected detail, the ephemeral moment ___ not the epic but the lyric truth. When the first 35mm camera ___ the Leica ___ was marketed in 1925, it seemed to Kertesz that it had been designed for his own eye.

For me they all have one thing in common: An almost magical appeal.
Photographer Explores Abandoned Italian Ruins And Takes Stunning Photographs (23 pics) 34K views 84 days ago by CriticalMass Italy’s forgotten ruins of a past full of memories. Orphanages, hospitals, villas, mortuaries and industrial complexes left for Mother Nature to decide their fate. From the photographer’s website: Krzysztof Pruszkowski By subjecting his photographic topics, wether they are taken from the media or not, to "multiple superimpositions", Krzysztof Pruszkowski demonstrates the limits of the new reality. A reality which disolves the notion of time picture by picture and, in a way, accounts for the speed which characterizes some videoclips, the instant circulation of information and pictures around the world. We are no more in the order of the snapshot. His process: to subject the picture to up to sixty or seventy superimpositions. He names it "photosynthesis" - the gathering of information which could not be covered in one shot. The process is often limited to six or seven superimpositions.
