American Beauty by Stewart Craig

” When I immigrated to America over a decade ago, the consumer culture that blankets this landscape took hold of me. While prevalent across the globe, it is heightened here, in the birthplace of contemporary capitalism. I adore the absurdity, both subtle and outrageous, found at every turn. As an outsider looking in, I seek to capture the ironies in the consumer landscape that Americans may otherwise be blind to. Bold colors, wide angles and jarring compositions add to the satirical tone of the work.” – Stewart Craig

Christopher Payne specializes in the documentation of America’s vanishing architecture and industrial landscape. Trained as an architect, he is fascinated by design, assembly, and the built form. His first book, New York’s Forgotten Substations: The Power Behind the Subway (Princeton Architectural Press, 2002), offered dramatic, rare views of the behemoth machines that are hidden behind modest facades in New York City. His second book, Asylum: Inside the Closed World of State Mental Hospitals (MIT Press, 2009), which includes an essay by the renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks, was the result of a seven-year survey of America’s vast and largely shuttered state mental institutions. Payne’s new book, North Brother Island: The Last Unknown Place in New York City (Fordham University Press, 2014), explores an uninhabited island of ruins in the East River. Payne’s photographs invoke the former grandeur of the site over different seasons, capturing hints of buried streets and infrastructure now reclaimed by nature, while also providing a unique glimpse into a city’s future without people.

” We are two photographers: Isabelle Chapuis combine art and fashion, Alexis Pichot is a light painter artist. After the meeting of our two worlds, this series entitled ‘Blossom’ evokes a journey of fantasy; for it we set off colored smoke bombs in emotionally-charged backdrops found throughout our travels. The project originates from our participation in the Speak Focus photographic competition themed, ‘Paris, I love you’. We chose to depict love by using a red smoke bomb in the streets of Paris, and were awarded second prize. From that day on, we continue to perform as we move onwards. We read in the smoke, as we guess in the clouds, forms of the imagination; ghostly presence that has been or will be: everyone is free to see what they like.” – Isabelle & Alexis

Gray Malin, an L.A.-based photographer, graduated from Emerson College with a degree in photography and marketing. His work has been exhibited in the Dallas Museum of Art, David Streets Gallery in Beverly Hills, and Gallery 825 of the Los Angeles Art Association. In his photographs Malin searches for (and finds) beauty the world over, capturing breathtaking landscapes (often beach scenes) from a helicopter. The resulting photos and their gem-like hues are sun-soaked and almost impossibly perfect. Fittingly, Malin’s work has been featured in fashion magazines like Elle and he has collaborated with David LaChappelle, whose photographs also blur the boundary between commercial and fine art photography.
