Dead Time

I was on a road trip in the USA years ago, staying in cheap motels and surviving on those great big American breakfasts of waffles and pancakes. Arriving at dusk at Big Sur, California, I checked into a place nestled between the ocean and a dense forest. As night closed in, the motel took on a different, more sinister feel. An open-air swimming pool stood alone, surrounded by the shadows of a picket fence. Steam rose from the water in the crisp, night air. It evoked a feeling of mystery and intrigue, reminding me of a David Lynch film or Edward Hopper painting. When I returned, it was one of my favourite images from the trip and I decided to work on a series of photographs of empty, open-air swimming pools shot at night. I was lucky to get my first solo show in London and secured Arts Council funding and was then commissioned by Time Out to shoot their Time Out Guide to Miami. This was great timing for the pools project, as once I’d ticked things off the picture list for the day, I’d go out with my tripod and camera, roaming the streets and looking for outdoor pools to shoot. The final edit consists of pools in the USA, France, Spain and also some lidos in the UK.

From The New Yorker:

The photographer Maisie Cousins has always wanted to make a mess. As a child, she played intently in the bath and the sink, spraying water everywhere; as a young woman, she dumped liquid in the garbage and admired the mélange. At eighteen, when she was in art school, as her peers toiled studiously over large-format black-and-white photographs of trees, Cousins started experimenting with riotous colors, textures, and shiny bodies. She drizzled herself and her friends with oil, then brought her camera in close, admiring the glossy surface of their skin. “I want to be surrounded by the things I’m interested in,” she told me, last month. “I want to fill space and spread out. I’m a maximalist, I guess.”

Rodrigo Oliveira - Carioca, Negro & Queer

A discriminação atinge de diversas formas as pessoas documentadas; o racismo por serem negros, a LGBT+fobia e a marginalização por terem nascidos na periferia.

A política da atual presidência Brasileira não favorece o fim do preconceito e problemas sociais vividos pela comunidade, pelo contrário, só fomenta. Esse é um momento crucial pra essa comunidade encontrar força na coletividade e para estar ciente que existem lugares onde suas vozes são ouvidas e suas identidades aceitas.

'Carioca, Negro & Queer' visa ilustrar através de fotografias e relatos pessoais, as vidas e experiências da população LGBTQIA+ negra proveniente e/ou residente de favelas e comunidades da região metropolitana do Rio de Janeiro. O projeto desafia uma conduta heteronormativa focando principalmente na desconstrução do conceito de gênero, tendo como partida a celebração de nossas identidades no modo em que nos vestimos, no estilo de vida que escolhemos e na nossa expressão artística.

Ming Smith is an American photographer. She was the first African-American female photographer whose work was acquired by the Museum Of Modern Art in New York City. Smith was born in Detroit, Michigan, and raised in Columbus, Ohio. After graduating from Howard University in 1973, she moved to New York City, where she found work modeling. While in New York she met photographer Anthony Barboza, who was an early influence.

Smith's approach to photography has included in-camera techniques such as playing with focus, darkroom techniques like double exposure, collage techniques and paint on prints. Her work is less engaged with documentation of events than with expression of experience. It has been described as surreal and ethereal, as the New York Times observed: "Her work, personal and expressive, draws from a number of artistic sources, preeminently surrealism. She has employed a range of surrealist techniques: photographing her subjects from oblique angles, shooting out of focus or through such atmospheric effects as fog and shadow, playing on unusual juxtapositions, even altering or painting over prints."

Kazimir_Malevich,_1915,_Black_Suprematic_Square,_o

Black Square (also known as The Black Square or Malevich's Black Square) is an iconic painting by Kazimir Malevich. The first version was done in 1915. Malevich made four variants of which the last is thought to have been painted during the late 1920s or early 1930s. Black Square was first shown in The Last Futurist Exhibition 0,10 in 1915. The work is frequently invoked by critics, historians, curators, and artists as the "zero point of painting", referring to the painting's historical significance and paraphrasing Malevich.

From The Photographers' Gallery:

Born in New Delhi, India, relocated to Montreal, Canada, before studying at the Royal College of Art in London, Gupta has been using photography as a critical practice since the 1970s.  Subversive, impulsive, personal and political, Sunil Gupta's socially engaged projects have focused on such issues as family, race, migration and the complexities and taboos of sexuality and homosexual life. His work has been instrumental in raising awareness around the political realities concerning the fight for international gay rights and of making visible the tensions between tradition and modernity, public and private, the body and body politics.
