Akihiko Miyoshi Uses Colored Tape to Create Mind-Blowing Self Portraits

Akihiko-Miyoshi
Akihiko Miyoshi’s series Abstract Photographs explores the lines between art and technology and more specifically, photographic representation. Using coloured tape on a mirror and various props, Miyoshi has created something similar to before-and-after shots, by focusing on himself, as the photographer, which blurs the tape and creates a kaleidoscope-like effect, then focusing on the tape to show the simplicity of his tape work on the mirror.

Miyoshi says, in his artist statement, that his presence in the collection reminds his audience of “the presence/absence of the producer/author and the method in which the images were constructed and bring forth the complex issues regarding authorship in the digital world”.

Mark Kimber’s Edgeland collection was born after being challenged by an art school professor to ‘go back to where you came from and deal with that’. He returned to what he previously remembered to be nothing but land from his youth in Port Adelaide, Australia only to find it industrialized.

Maxime Ballesteros’ newest collection, Love Me- I’m Trying, sits along a vague line of not only being a mix of candid and staged photographs but also genres, ranging from those standard urban and cultural landscapes to somewhat striking still life shots.

Instar, Meghann Riepenhoff’s latest chromogenic photograms, is a collection that can be more easily described as ‘surreal’. With all the photos being taken in complete darkness, the outcome of any given piece is often a surprise. The final product of this is something along the continuum of phenomenal and comforting.

Public Telephones Photographed Around the World

Australian-based photographer Louis Porter captures obscure objects that often go unnoticed, turning the mundane into something more. He does this in Telephone Booths, a series observing public phones and their variation between countries. Porter plays with the constant of the telephone – an object exhibiting the same purpose and function anywhere – yet when captured in vastly different environments around the world, we are reminded of the components of a connected society.
