Giacomo Brunelli

Giacomo Brunelli is best known for his critically acclaimed series The Animals I/II where he has photographed striking portraits of animals – mostly taken in Italy. Brunelli’s technique involves the exploitation of light, shadow and contrast, which imbue his images with a dramatic atmosphere and an unsettling feeling of perturbation. Brunelli appropriates the concepts, the...

Anne Collier is a contemporary American photographer known for her use of appropriated images. By focusing her camera on existing photographic materials, such as album covers and fashion advertisements, Collier explores themes of irony, detachment, and identity. “Like commercial photography, I’m interested in establishing an aesthetic clarity but at the same time, through the nature of...
Virgilio Ferreira

Virgilio Ferreira

Virgilio Ferreira looks to capture impressions that are vague or intangible, but that include notions of social and everyday life. He attempts to do this by exploring the analogue photographic process creatively, in order to deny any fixed reality and the vision that the camera offers. At the same time, aesthetically, the images may have...
Nan Goldin

Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Often referred to as process art, Gonzalez-Torres’s work focused on ideas of formation and decay: he combined household and found objects that have the potential to change over...
Clinton Holler

Clinton Holler

Clinton Holler views the photograph, in the same way as philosopher Vilem Flusser, as a technical image form that has fundamentally changed the way in which the world is seen. Photography heralds new forms of perceptual experience and knowledge. In contrast to paintings that can be sensibly read, as more or less direct signs, of what the painter intended, photography produces...
Alison Jackson

Alison Jackson

Alison Jackson is a contemporary artist who explores the cult of celebrity – an extraordinary phenomenon of our age created by the wide availability of imagery in the media. Using lookalikes Jackson creates convincingly realistic images – likeness becomes real and fantasy touches on the believable in scenarios that we imagine but have never seen....

Ryan McGinley

Ryan McGinley

Ryan McGinley’s ‘snapshots’ have been evolving steadily since his guerilla show at 420 West Broadway in 2000. In the intervening years he has moved away from an artistic practice that was the soul of casual and towards an elaborated production schedule that raises the ante on ‘being there.’ McGinley has gone from being perceived as...

Eduardo Paolozzi

Eduardo Paolozzi

Eduardo Paolozzi was a Scottish artist and prominent influence on what became the Pop Art movement. He produced large-scale figurative sculptures, prints, and collages made from magazines and other found objects. “I like to make use of everything. I can’t bear to throw things away—a nice wine bottle, a nice box,” he once said. “Sometimes...
Minhong Pyo

Minhong Pyo

Minhong Pyo carefully examines the interface between the real and imaginary by both constructing his own worlds which he then photographs or by taking enigmatic photographs of the real world. All images are then manipulated to further blur the boundaries of reality. A photograph is often seen as a window to absolute truth, reproducing what...
Mariah Robertson

Mariah Robertson

When do the rules that govern photography actually limit creativity?, asks Mariah Robertson, who “likes to find the point at which the little mediocre photographer in me gets its feathers ruffled”. Who said a print had to meekly accept being confined to a frame? Why can’t it ripple along a floor, up a wall and...
John Stezaker

John Stezaker

John Stezaker’s work re-examines the various relationships to the photographic image: as documentation of truth, purveyor of memory, and symbol of modern culture. In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in books, magazines, and postcards and uses them as ‘readymades’. Through his elegant juxtapositions, Stezaker adopts the content and contexts of the original images to...
Tommy Taylor

Tommy Taylor

An artists statement. Identity and Meaning in The Digital Age. It’s choice, chance, and personal myth I use to see this distinct identity through art. First, I gather and filter through hundreds and sometimes thousands of personal images, which form a theme from relationships, family, or travel. After the filtering I make formal decisions on...
