Katarzyna Górna – Madonny (1996-2001)

The maturation of Madonna – as an adolescent who has just started her monthly cycle, as Mother Mary with the infant Christ, and finally in a pose reminiscent of the Pietà.

Claude Cahun (Lucy Schwob)

Another postcard on my wall.

“Gender ambiguity was central to the recently rediscovered work of Claude Cahun. Born Lucie Schwob, she adopted the more androgynous sounding name Claude Cahun and lived in Paris as part of an openly lesbian couple. She moved in surrealist circles, but never actively promoted herself as either writer or artist: her photographs, for example, were not exhibited in her lifetime. However, shaving her hair off, or wearing various disguises, Cahun used her self-portrait photographs to suggest that all forms of self-representation involved an element of masquerade.” via [Tate Modern]

Satomi Shirai – Home from Home

“Home from Home is about cramped domestic conditions, where the inhabitants of these mostly tiny places appear and disappear, vanish and seem to even lose their own identity. Often the people shown in Satomi’s pictures can’t be recognized. They are anonymous inhabitants of faceless living spaces and yet one can discover so many reminiscences in her images about national origins, cultural uniqueness and individual personal histories.” via [Artnet]

Torsten Warmuth

Images from Belle de nuit, Provocacion and Night Gatherers.

Torsten Warmuth, 1968, is a German experimental, fine-art photographer who received a degree in Natural Science and a doctorate at the University of Kassel. In 1996, after having worked for a US mathematics software producer he decides to devote himself exclusively to photography. Within his extensive portfolio we find works using the double exposure technique. For most of his images he uses a large format camera. His series Belle de Nuit contains work surrounding Berlin’s nightlife. While making this series he experimented with multiple toning, producing unique works that give the prints a heightened plastic effect which become Silver Paintings. From 2010 onwards, the produced negatives have become more of a raw material that he works on creating pictorial compositions. By hand he creates multi-toned prints on gelatin silver paper.” via [500 Photographers]
