3 Glasses Later by Marcos Alberti

 photo unnamed-10_zps0wd4ggdd.jpg  photo unnamed-8_zpswnsgcviq.jpg Brazilian photographer creates a unique experience among friends. Marcos Alberti decided to put together some of his passions in this project, friends, photography, wine and also a good old talk. There is a saying about wine that I really like and it's something like this “The first glass of wine is all about the food, the second glass is about love and the third glass is about mayhem” I really wanted to see it for myself if that affirmation was in fact true says Marcos about his latest project. 3 Glasses after started as a joke like a game after hours but a serious work with a good humorous vibe ,the first picture was taken right away when our guests have just arrived at the studio in order to capture the stress and the fatigue after a full day after working all day long and from also facing rush hour traffic to get here. Only then fun time and my project could begin. At the end of every glass of wine a snapshot, nothing fancy, a face and a wall, 3 times. People from all walks of life, music, art, fashion, dance, architecture, advertising got together for a couple of nights and by the end of the third glass several smiles emerged and many stories were told.  photo unnamed-4_zpsdzxzoakt.jpg  photo unnamed-9_zpstc9kxg7t.jpg

I create visual narratives that are inspired by the darkness within the real world, using poetic metaphors and uncanny motifs through paintings, installations, books, films and puppetry to help beguile, enchant and illuminate. Ultimately, I seek to inspire and encourage people to question the mistakes of our world and adopt wiser moral judgment, through use of cautionary tales and uncanny punishment." - Layla Holzer  photo unnamed-9_zpsl7umlwa5.jpg  photo unnamed-4_zpssaycktx7.jpg

Joseph McGlennon

 photo unnamed-4_zps82pixqb9.jpg  photo unnamed-10_zpsjgyvkclq.jpg  photo unnamed-11_zpswkauciic.jpg 'Joseph McGlennon’s photographic works are majestic recreations of animals in their natural habitats – the first kangaroos to be seen by European eyes, parrots perching on a branch surrounded by exotic blooms, the extinct Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) fresh from killing its prey. McGlennon’s lens brings his subjects out of the realm of exotic specimen or historical curiosity and pushes them, living and breathing, into today. McGlennon takes hundreds of different photographs and spends weeks layering and arranging them to arrive at the final image. The landscape is as important as the animal itself – there are no blurred backgrounds or subdued foregrounds in McGlennon’s montages. The inclusion of every detail creates a hyper-real effect that pulls the viewer into contact with the flora and fauna that the planet stands to lose. McGlennon came to photography following a successful career in advertising. He won the 2015 William and Winifried Bowness Photography Prize for Florilegium #1, his picture of two parrots perched on tropical foliage, inspired by Joseph Banks’ botanical drawings.'

These landscapes, by artists such as Albert Bierstadt and Frederic Edwin Church, were deeply rooted in the political constructs of the time and depicted the land as a bountiful Eden, a limitless frontier ripe for conquest. I take these images out of their familiar context, the framed canvas, and paint directly on wood slices with bark intact. These landscapes appear as an homage to the idyllic art of the Hudson River School yet, by viewing the painting’s surface, the cross section of a tree, any sense of nostalgia or celebration of nature is countered by the evidence of its destruction." - Alison Moritsuguby  photo unnamed-11_zpsvkjiaevc.jpg  photo unnamed-10_zpshkgopw1k.jpg  photo unnamed-4_zpsffzsauvq.jpg
