Rania Matar's portfolio La Femme-Enfant

"'La Femme-Enfant' (the Woman-Child) are portraits of young teens and pre-teens, investigating how they interact with the camera. The only instruction I give the girls is not to smile and I allow them to fall into their poses as they wish. My aim is to portray the girl when allowed to pose herself as she wishes in front of the camera. I try to capture alternatively the angst, the self-confidence or lack thereof, the body language, the sense of selfhood and the developing sense of sexuality and womanhood girls that age experience." — Rania Matar

A Closer Look — The Mushroom Collection

"The Mushroom Collection is an exhibition catalogue of Jason Fulford's work on exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Art through April 8th. Entitled New Pictures 5: Jason Fulford the Mushroom Collection, it is the first museum exhibition of the project that was initially inspired by a gift of a flea market envelope containing 80 or so images of mushrooms, carefully annotated by an obvious collector of fungi. Using these images as a starting point, Fulford made a number of images that riff on elements of the found images, the resulting combination of which became the celebrated book The Mushroom Collector." — from Sarah Bradley's post on photo-eye Blog.

A Closer Look — God Jul och got Nytt År önskar Gerry och Ann

"God Jul och got Nytt År önskar Gerry och Ann is a collection of images taken by (Gerry) Johansson and later made into Christmas cards from the years 1978 - 2011. The photographs — taken in the photographer's hometown of Höganäs, Sweden — are subtle, quite depictions of holiday decorations and lights on empty streets. Often cast in a heavy fog or taken at night, these images rarely (if at all) give the viewer any sense of holiday jubilation — they simply depict the reality of the dreary Swedish weather and worn out decorations." — from Antone Dolezal's post on photo-eye Blog

Bifröst by Espen R. Krukhaug


"In Norse Mythology the word Bifröst is used to describe a burning rainbow bridge that spans between earth and the realm of the gods. In his recent monograph, Espen Krukhaug uses the term Bifröst and a series of photographs in an effort to describe what it's like to suffer from insomnia. In the preface he writes, 'I can imagine a good night's sleep, but it always seems just out of reach, as if I'm walking across an endless bridge, never reaching the other side.'" —Daniel W. Coburn from the review of Bifröst by Espen R. Krukhaug

Oceanomania by Mark Dion


"[Mark] Dion's latest project, Oceanomania took him to the Nouveau Musée National and the Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium of Monaco where he explored the grand halls and backrooms of these storied maritime collections. Past works that convey his long-standing interest in representations of nature and concern for its degradation were inserted into existing displays. The creation of a gigantic curiosity cabinet was a more regimented and often jarring re-framing of collected objects." — Karen Jenkins from the review of Oceanomania by Mark Dion

Ryan McGinley: You & I Ryan McGinley: You & I
"Ryan McGinley's newest work signals a departure from the urban youth culture images for which he is best known; he has been working in natural settings outside New York City, creating specific situations for his subjects to lose themselves in the moment. McGinley embraces nature as a site of freedom and captures a sense of buoyancy and release." — the publisher READ MORE
