What the city is missing: Thierry Cohen photographs cityscapes and then photographs deserts at night, combing the two to show us what our cities would look like with the lights off. The stars are not enhanced, they are actual photos from relative latitudes that would expose the same starry sky view if it weren’t for light pollution. Click on each photo to see which city it is.

Wow. I am really loving this woman’s work. It’s quite dramatic and cinematic. The images above are from her series Compulsion. The eye’s next to each photo adds even more human emotion. I will probably make another post or two of her other works. : )

bio: Born in 1979, Alex Prager is a self-taught American photographer and filmmaker who lives and works in Los Angeles. Featured in MoMA’s New Photography 2010, Prager’s work has been exhibited at institutions worldwide.

Characterized by deeply saturated colors, heightened drama, and dark humor, Prager’s film noir inspired photographs hint at narrative subtexts while maintaining a sense of ambiguity and self-contained emotional intensity. Her work draws from a diverse group of influences, including pulp fiction, the cinematic style of David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock, and Luis Buñuel, as well as contemporary artists such as William Eggleston, Cindy Sherman, and Enrique Metinides.

Prager’s work has been featured in publications such as the New York Times Magazine, American Vogue, W Magazineand Art in America.  Additionally, her photographs are in the permanent collection of several major museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Kunsthaus Zurich, and Moderna Museet, Stockholm, among others.

Thomas Lamadieu

"Sky Art"

After watching the clouds float by the picturesque buildings in his hometown of Avignon, France, Thomas Lamadieu dreamed up whimsical figures squeezed in the pockets of the sky.

Lamadieu makes his “Sky Art” images from his photographs of cities, where he captures geometric expanses of blue sky framed by buildings. Then he fills in empty spaces with drawings of bearded men and wild-haired women.

Mixing the old with the new, Lamadieu using the dinosaur application Microsoft Paint to compose his charmingly claustrophobic drawings. “There is an oldschool side that I like with this software,”  -via the Huffington Post.

Half Awake Half Asleep in the Water

Artists website:

Asako Narahashi’s series half awake and half asleep in the water is a collection of C-Prints of various coastal sites in Japan. Since beginning the project in 2001, the artist has photographed over fifty locations with a Nikonos 35mm waterproof film camera. Narahashi floats chest deep in the ocean while facing back towards the shore, her camera held half-submerged in the water. By watching the waves without using the viewfinder, the artist times her pictures according to the swells of the ocean tide.

From this vantage point, waves washing against the lens of the camera create unexpected relationships between water, land and sky. With the water in the extreme foreground, the ocean dominates the view and distorts the customary perspectives of bridges, airplanes, buildings and mountains. The images are suspended in moments of uncertainty, leaving conflicting sensations of calm and growing apprehension unresolved.” -Yossi Milo Gallery. 

I love the feeling of this work, it is really beautiful.
