” Portraiture in the past has been regarded as a documentation of a person but for me it is a documentation of the encounter between myself and the subject. It is not meant to reveal them, nor is it meant to subject them to an X-ray; it is a departure from that. I am more interested in the alchemical reaction that occurs when elements are brought together in a space. ” – Steven Klein
Dongwook Leeâ€™s works are suffused with a simultaneously gloomy and lyrical horror. His miniature human figures condense both hyper-reality and surrealistic illusion, creating odd but beautiful cacophonies. Some are displayed as medical curiosities, squeezed into a syringe or cocooned in a bell jar. Here, the human form is scrutinized and dissected under a cold scientific gaze.
‘ Jason Florio (b.1965, England) has been based in New York since 1996. He apprenticed with a number of top NYC fashion photographers, but soon decided that â€˜realismâ€™ was his real calling. In 2000 he crossed Taliban controlled Afghanistan and in August 2001 he photographed the Taliban opposition forces; returning to NYC on Sept 5th to be at the foot of the Twin Towers as they collapsed. Since then he has worked all across the Middle East, Africa and South America for publications including The New Yorker, Outside, Menâ€™s Journal and The New York Times. He returns yearly to his â€˜other homeâ€™, The Gambia where he has been producing large format black and white portraits for the past 12 years, documenting the people who live around a sacred area of land called â€˜Makasutuâ€™. He has had a number of solo exhibits in NYC, and his work is in the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Museum of art. ‘ (via Verve Photo)
