Photo Manipulations by Joseph Alexander

LA-based photographer Joseph Alexander creates impressive images with a strong emphasis on photo manipulation and retouching. Joseph explores androgyny and intersexual themes – not only gender but also something more of an inter-species. He again uses negative space, simple composition and lots of colour.

Based in Rotterdam, Netherlands, Anouk Griffioen creates haunting, mural-scale charcoal drawings that offer glimpses into lush, overgrown places where humanity and nature seamlessly connect. The human subjects of her work are merely guides for viewers to immerse themselves in the sublime landscapes. It’s as if Griffioen is inviting her viewers to imagine themselves as her often faceless characters. There is a fashion-conscious aspect to her work as well: the svelte, model-like bodies strike casual yet glamorous poses, wearing smartly tailored outfits that camouflage with their surroundings.

It’s a busy season for Griffioen, who will be showing in the group show “Hunting” at Flatland Gallery in Amsterdam October 25 through December 18. You can also catch her in “Chinese Whispers,” on view at Karin Janssen Project Space in London November 6 through 23. Griffioen is currently working on a solo show for Stedelijk Museum Zwolle that will debut in 2016. Take a look at some shots from her studio

The Surreal Distorted Sculptures of Emil Alzamora

Emil Alzamora was born in Lima, Peru in 1975. His family moved to Boca Grande, Florida when he was two. He later attended Florida State University where he graduated Magna cum Laude in 1998 earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. Alzamora harnesses a wide range of materials and techniques to deliver unexpected interpretations of the sculpted human figure. He often distorts, elongates, deconstructs, or encases his forms to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story. Alzamora’s keen interest in the physical properties of his materials combined with his hands-on approach allow for the process to reveal and inform at once the aesthetic and the conceptual.

Dearest Cecilia, the story can resume. The one I had been planning on that evening walk. I can become again the man who once crossed the surrey park at dusk, in my best suit, swaggering on the promise of life. The man who, with the clarity of passion, made love to you in the library. The story can resume. I will return. Find you, love you, marry you and live without shame.
