Task 1 expermental photography

  1. 1. Ronny Engelmann Ronny Engelmann is a 24 year old student and photo artist originally from Germany, has no specific genre he specialises in because as quote “There are too many things in this world.” his work has only been recognised in recent times after beginning his work in experimental photography in March 2012. As you can see from the examples that I have provided this work is seen as contemporary in the world of experimental photography using new forms of media such as Photoshop to create new and innovative work, and there for seen as non-traditional. All 3 are great example of this as the top right photograph shows this overlay of a silloutee walking though the woods in this black and white colour gradient. Another to the bottom left has been produced be taking multiple photographs of the hands and the cut them into the original hand using Photoshop. The top left image has been created to give it that cartoon and hand drawn look to it with the added sepia filter, and as research shows the is most known for working in black and white and in sepia.
  2. 2. Bela Borsodi. is a well known still life photographer originally Bela Borsodi from Austria born in 1966 and now based in New York City from the 1990s. When starting out in his career he began working for magazine which brought photography to his attention, shooting portraits, fashion and editorial pieces. In terms of the design and inspiration working closely with mixed media and aspects of fine art, graphic design, design craft and psychology. Which reflect a surreal view of the world. Previous works have published in magazines such as vogue and another magazine as well as for commercial use found in shop windows for Selfridges and hermes. With a 3d dimension on fashion and accessorises. One of his most well known pieces what has been seen in newspapers for its optical illusion and created for the album cover terrain for VLP and instead of using the contemporary way of using Photoshop it was a painstaking arrangement of trial and error looking at the view finder until the set up was right. Which is a colourful image of household goods made to look like 4 separate photos in one picture. Another example could be for document magazine and the images that where produced in this case mixing both the real life models and illustrative pieces that were also incorporated into the images, so reflect the humour silly and light hearted nature to his images. So appeal to a more up to date younger audience.
  3. 3. John Stezaker John Stezaker is a British conceptual artist, known for steering away from the already existing pop art that was around in the 1970s, when stezaker became most recognised, and is seen as a college of different mediums using existing salvaged images e.g. books, postcards, magazines, film stills and publicity photography which have then be reformed into new works from john stezaker. The images themselves have been created in a using cut and paste technique “constructing a fragmented and dislocated view of contemporary reality. The individual images fuse and separate before our eyes, opening up new characters, relationships and meanings.” therefore in terms of techniques that have been us it is based on a more traditional method to create there photographs . In one of his series of work stezaker concentrates on portraiture photography from that time. An example of those could be taken from famous shots of classic film stars, and by overlapping and cutting parts of their famous faces, however still managing to keep the rectangular shape to the inserts and in return creates a hybrid of ‘icons’ another example is that of marring male and female identity into unified characters showing this type of disjointed image, with another message to the image. Either that reflects the shaping of the face or the personality and feeling behind them.
