Victoria Siemer is a Brooklyn-based graphic designer who created a series of digital artworks that investigates our discernment of space. In an untitled series of images, Siemer cleverly made geometric shapes into images of natural landscapes to create fragmented reflections within the landscapes themselves. She places fragments of the landscapes, making flowing natural panoramas and vistas turn into angular and rigid visuals.
The uniqueness of Darren Moore‘s photographs is not found in how he captures fleeting moments, but rather quite the opposite. The Surrey photographers’ dreamlike and ethereal long exposures, as fantastic as they are, barely allow us to see the painstaking process involved in their creation. Besides the usual task of finding an idyllic location as well as subject or focal point, composing the image and getting the technical details right, Moore who is both a painter as well as photographer has to set up his camera to take in minimal light since he mostly shoots in the daytime.
“Composition is a crucial factor in making your images sing. Get it wrong and you are likely to remain just a good photographer. The goal, for most, I imagine is to be great at what you do. Even after 18 years in this business, I came away learning so much about the use and sometimes abuse of composition. Indeed, what Lauren and Rob have done is break it all down elegantly and free of the jargon found in stuffy photography books. I recommend it to those starting out in photography and to those who like me have been at it for a very long time.” – Seshu, Tiffinbox.org

Photographers have a fetish for discontinued film stock. Taking images using film that is in very limited supply appears to make their work more exotic, rare and perhaps hopefully more in demand. Such was the case for New York–based photographer Daniel Zvereff who recently got his hands on some of the last remaining supply of old Kodak Aerochrome film in 120 format.
