Impact by Miranda Brandon

Displayed are some of the birds I found, fully intact with everything that they were, aside from a conscience and a pulse. The birds are photographed in ways representative of the moment of impact or the aftermath of impact." - Miranda Brandon  photo rsz_h900_26_139_zps6d633117.jpg  photo rsz_h900_26_77_zps4d97913a.jpg  photo rsz_h900_26_140_zps1c492153.jpg

Art means everything to me, it is my source of happiness and sadness at the same time. In my work I am not fond of rules but I am searching for the unique, different and for a clear understanding of myself and my world, this allows me to explore fragments of life as an abstract form, while changing things and also to interact with people I would otherwise not be able to engage with. I’m especially drawn to the combination of digital photography and computer generated images. My philosophy on art is about taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. I’m inspired by the contrast of light and dark, while I use the changing light to arouse the mood of my dreams and experiences. I feel that an honest picture of someone or something can tell a short history of the world. It has the power to reach back and remind us who we are and how we behave in the face of loneliness as we relate to it in our everyday lives." - Paul Pond  photo tumblr_nd0qtyjsch1tdhdd9o1_1280_zps535208ba.jpg

Daikichi Amano

 photo tumblr_nc54ca7uhS1skpha5o4_1280_zps527a2dbe.jpg  photo tumblr_n1q8y5z1LE1sa80aho7_1280_zps33565b35.jpg Born in Tokio in 1973, studies art in USA before to come back in Japan. Began to show art work in Tokio, in 2007. Amano’s photographs are drawn from his own private fantasies. Fantasies that are animistic, animalistic and atavistic in nature, but all-too-human in execution, evoking primal fears and desires. In Amano’s world, the human body is worshipped and admired for its awesome beauty but also deformed and fused with nature – with wood, blood, bones, scales and feathers – transforming it into an erotic grotesque. But these frightful dioramas are also cut through with the blackest humour. Link here.  photo large_zps00a4b415.jpg  photo tumblr_n1q8y5z1LE1sa80aho4_1280_zps68216513.jpg

A Portrait of Crufts by Martin Usborne

 photo Crufts_21_zpsed3daf69.jpg  photo Crufts_07_zps6c31d58c.jpg  photo Crufts_19_zps008ac147.jpg Martin’s key interest is man’s relationship to (other) animals. Although his imagery is sometimes dark – capturing the way in which we silence, control or distance ourselves from other animals – his pictures strive for a subtle humour. Martin often undertakes editorial or commercial commissions and his work is regularly featured in international magazines and has been seen in group and solo shows around the world as well as in the National Portrait Gallery London. He has had four books published. More here.  photo Crufts_13_zpsd613683b.jpg  photo Crufts_15_zps921faaed.jpg
