PhotoWings Here are some excerpts from this fascinating interview: Malcolm Daniel on our shared photographic heritage. From a historical standpoint, there are things to be learned from the past. From a more spiritual aspect, great works of art have the power to move us, whether they're made now or whether they were made 50 years ago, 100 years ago or 1,000 years ago or more.

Algorithm-Powered Movie whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir Computes at Sundance A scene from the computer-powered film whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir. PARK CITY, Utah — It’s never the same movie twice. [bug id="sundance"]Eve Sussman’s experimental cinema project whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir uses a computer to build a movie out of 3,000 video clips, 80 voiceovers and 150 pieces of music.

Contemporary Photography I made this series with the desire to build a set of symbolic portraits inspired by my background of double cultures. I'm French with Middle Eastern origins. I worked by using the pictorial tradition of still lives. I chose to put forward characters where the nature and objects they carry come from different rites and customs. The photographs can be grouped into three metaphorical categories: Firstly the "mark", with elements of uncultivated land, evocative death and rebirth.

BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning - Photographer I love old photos. 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.

Mrs. Deane : nothing is too amazing to be true non-digitally manip­u­lated hand print © Yaseen Al-Obeidy The Kuwait Weeks were born out of a con­ver­sa­tion I had with Kuwaiti pho­tog­ra­pher Mohammed Alk­ouh, who is cur­rently hav­ing a solo show at CAP Kuwait, which includes a num­ber of his recent stu­dio por­traits. We talked about his encoun­ters in the tra­di­tional por­trait stu­dios, which gave him the love for the hand-colored image, and how for him those pho­tographs, like real life instances of Oscar Wilde’s pic­tures of Dorian Gray, con­tained the pres­ence and the youth of a fam­ily mem­ber now in advanced age or even deceased.

How New Platforms, Streaming Media Change the Equation for Indie Filmmakers Traditionally, there were three main types of distribution for the work of independent filmmakers: theatrical, broadcast and straight to DVD. Most filmmakers hoped for a combination of all three. But everything has changed. The digital online world has opened up new avenues of distribution including video on demand, live streaming, and mobile and tablet applications. Indie filmmakers are harnessing these digital forms of distribution to increase their audience and maintain control of their film, but the “how and where” their film is viewed, the financial recovery of production costs, and their eligibility for awards all factor into their choices. “Every film has its own path,” said director Tiffany Shlain, remembering something she once heard that stuck.

Égarements by Cerise Doucède With application, precision and humour, photographer Cerise Doucède created the series ‘Égarements’ (aberration) consisting of installations which represents each of our dreams and obsession or even fears. By shaping her own visions, she reproduces her version of reality and sublimates the most ordinary moments. Objects thus come to life around one or more figures, in intimate locations, at key moments of everyday life.
