» Zwielicht «

Nach dreieinhalb Jahren Studium zwischen Analog und Digital, zwischen Licht und Schatten, Dunkelkammer und Druckraum zeigen die Abschlussklassen von Marc Volk und Bertram Kober ihre Arbeiten im Forum der Neuen Schule für Fotografie. Passend zum Titel “Zwielicht” wird die Ausstellung in zwei Teilen präsentiert.

Armando Alvarez

Armando Alvarez is an artist who has been photographing his surroundings for as long as he can remember. His photographs have been described as greedy, sarcastic, and somewhat the equivalent of a cross between Duke Ellington and Bad Brains. He makes no apologies for these descriptions. He prefers the slow, arduous process of shooting on “outdated” medium format film cameras over the immediacy of digital cameras and computer software.

He currently lives and works in South Texas where he spends all his free time with his wife and three beautiful children.

Ruth Bartlett

Dalston-based Central St. Martins graduate Ruth Bartlett has been described as someone who “basically does nice things”. We agree. Love her “ThreeDee” thingies and especially her photos.

Cars

I don’t even like cars especially, but I can relate to these two photographic projekts about them. The first one is a series “Vector Portraits” (1989-1997) by Andrew Bush, who took shots of people driving in their cars by 50 to 75 mph around Los Angeles. Maybe the relation of the owners to their vehicles is so catching.

Sunburned

Photographer Chris McCaw uses a huge self built 20×24″ camera to actually burn the sun`s path into vintage photographic paper. He starts before sunrise, takes off the cap of his old, radioactive lens that was used in the 60ties for military aerial purposes and leaves the camera open for a few hours. The surface of the old paper gets burned and turns negative (solarization) because it consists of a higher percentage of silver than new materials.
