Thank you to The New Yorker @newyorkermag and to Jordan Coley @ejordan.web for this beautiful piece on Chester Higgins @chesterhiggins12 !

"When Chester Higgins began making photographs for magazines and newspapers, in the late 1960s, he was one of a handful of Black photographers working in mainstream media. Much of the work produced in his 39 years as a staff photographer at The New York Times was a concerted attempt to incorporate Black America into the world’s consciousness. “When I arrived at The New York Times in 1975, I felt the media was immune to any real comprehension of the world I knew well,” he wrote at the time of his retirement from the paper, in 2014. “I wanted to share the history and traditions of the people I grew up with.” Throughout his expansive career, Higgins trained his eye on moments of calm, locating an inherent grace, style, and sublime beauty in the Black everyday. Tap the link in our bio to view more of his work."

Thank you 1000 Words @1000words_magazine and Alex Merola @alex_merola for the beautiful feature on Brea Souders @breasouders and her new show Vistas!

"What will be left for us to probe? What ‘aesthetic entrances’ will be used? Alex Merola on Brea Souders’ weaving of pixels and pigments that offers intricate yet epic articulations of the natural world, continuing long traditions of American landscape photography.

'The spectacular mysticism of Souders’ visions invokes an inalienable subjectivity, yet one which is not only steeped in the drama of the self, but bound by a larger awareness of its passage through certain photographic traditions. For, virtually mediating, and appropriating images of, terrains initially imaged by men – Carleton Watkins, Timothy O’Sullivan et al – the artist activates an agency historically withheld from women. Vistas thus becomes all the more disruptive by way of the fact many of its scenes relay female viewpoints; those of women trekking, documenting, mapping and populating. Their imprints recall those of Ana Mendieta’s Silhueta (1973–78), which saw her burn, carve and mould her form into the landscape to ‘return to the maternal source’."

08/02/2021

Shinichi Maruyama's @shinichimaruyamastudio series KUSHO (the Japanese word for “writing in the sky”) features large-scale photographs that represent the midair interplay of black Indian ink and water. The phenomenon that Shinichi Maruyama captures—two liquids colliding the millisecond before they merge into gray—is the result of various actions and devices. The resultant images, which appear to be more painting than photograph, literally deconstruct the material elements of ink drawing and calligraphy, allowing the viewer to see in extraordinary detail chemical and physical processes invisible to the naked eye. The split-second timing necessary to photograph these pictures is made possible by recent advances in strobe light technology, allowing the artist to capture phenomena to within 7,500th of a second.

Michael Wolf investigated new perspectives on urban life and its structure in the digital age. He addressed the realities of 21st century metropolitan existence, one defined by constant access, vanishing privacy, and unlimited exposure. In a diverse array of mediums, from large format cameras capturing architectural landscapes, to appropriating Google’s Street View imagery to isolate anonymous city dwellers, the artist explored the density of city life. His eye for detail within the online world allowed him to introduce a certain vernacular visual language into his work, as well as balance the private and the public, the anonymity and the individuality, the faraway to the up close. Wolf’s deliberate and engaging compositions highlighted his innovative vision, reflecting a new approach to imagining our world’s most photographed cities.
