Photo du Jour: A Forest of Internet Photos

Anastasia-Samoylova_01

Autumns

We have all downloaded that ocean scene or forest desktop background, so saturated with color and disreality, yet somehow alluring enough to draw us in. Anastasia Samoylova uses the Internet’s infinite resource of nature imagery to assemble temporary sculptures for her series Landscape Sublime. Playing with ideas of the human desire to experience something beautiful beyond themselves, Samoylova examines this concept through popular screen-based photographs and the transformation that occurs when they take on a more physical form.

For his project Fair Judgement, Seattle-based photographer William Rugen frequents many state fairs in the Western United States, including Washington, Texas, Utah, and Arizona. After years spent away from rural fair grounds, the project has gifted him with the opportunity to relive small town childhood moments spent balloon racing and gazing awestruck at some of the rides, which he himself avoided due to motion sickness. Fair Judgement has birthed a side project devoted solely to nostalgic visions of rides and games, seen with a strong eye for color and shape.

Photo du Jour: Balancing It All

Ellen_Brooks

Balancer

For her 1978-1985 project Tableaux, California photographer and sculptor Ellen Brooks constructed miniature stage sets on which male and female figurines play out domestic dramas that cut to the core of gender roles and expectations. In her immaculately crafted worlds, reality is both shrunken in size and elevated in theatricality, with routine daily frustrations told through heightened allegorical scenes.

When New York-based photographer Justin Walker was approached by Sinsemil.la, an underground fine dining club specializing in marijuana-infused cuisine, he welcomed the opportunity to show the controversial plant in a new context. Sinsemil.la, he explains, creates its menu by pairing varieties of cannabis with foods that compliment its natural flavors and psychoactive effects. Their ingredients are locally sourced and organically farmed with the intention of creating one-of-a-kind meals, not merely for the sake of getting stoned.
