The photo series “The Social Network” deals with the slang language of social networks. How much man behind the custom profiles? How much influence does the user on his profile? As the online alter-ego is set by the social network scene? Is the “social network” really so socially or is it just a big self-presentation stage? The images are metaphorical photo illustrations.

” In this series called “IRÉEL” I mixed photographic elements with painting techniques. A hyperrealist painter aims to achieve a result which looks like a real photographic picture. A pictorialist photographer’s desired result is visually equivalent to a painting. The photographs are real, I’ve just applied some color/toning effects, adjusted the contrast and a few skin retouch. ” – Flora Borsi

Viviane Sassen (Dutch, born 1972) studied fashion design and photography before receiving an MFA from Ateliers Arnhem, the Netherlands. Some of her earliest memories are of life in Kenya, where she spent three years as a child. When her family returned to the Netherlands in 1978, Sassen was troubled: “I didn’t feel like I belonged in Europe, and yet I knew I was a foreigner in Africa,” she says. Ten years later, at age sixteen, Sassen revisited Kenya, and she has been traveling and working in Africa ever since. She made Parasomnia, her newest body of work, in a number of intentionally unidentified African countries, featuring anonymous subjects. Parasomnia is a category of sleep disorder whose symptoms include abnormal dreams, nightmares, and sleepwalking. In the surreal pictures in this installation, Sassen invites viewers to follow her on a journey through the mysterious remnants of her memories. (via MoMa)

Alex Prager (born November 1, 1979) is an American art photographer and filmmaker who lives and works in Los Angeles. Her photographs primarily use staged sets and models to create “film-like” images that invite a myriad references, not only to the history of Hollywood and photography, but also the cinematic image in art contexts. The subjects of her works, exaggerated and costumed, some times “hyper-real” speak to the ambiguity of seduction and spectacle.

” In the winter of 2010 I bought a DSLR camera with the intention of taking pictures of my 8 month old son. My slow compact camera just wasn’t fast enough to keep up with my son, or so said the salesman who talked me into spending several hundred dollars more than I had initially intended. I drove home from the store with buyer’s remorse, wondering why I had let myself be suckered into spending so much money. When I looked through my new camera’s viewfinder for the first time, however, I was reminded of my love of photography that I had long ago forgotten. I am a shy and introverted person by nature but have a strong desire to connect with people. Photography allows me a safe place to do that. These photographs are a record of shared moments of intimacy and are, as such, reflections of both myself and my subjects.” – Erika Huffman
