Photo links

My studio work is still progressing slowly. I have ideas, and am working, but don’t have anything finished enough to show. In the meantime, here’s a couple of artists doing photographic work I think is interesting.

Yeondoo Jung has made a series of photographs based on children’s drawings. They’re a little surreal, but with a pop sensibility that keeps the mood light.

Jan von Holleben is a German photographer who did a fun series titled Dreams of Flying. The idea is pretty simple: He has children lie on the ground, surrounded by various props, and shoots them from above. The result is lighthearted photographs without a visible horizon line, giving an obviously fabricated, yet visually believable illusion of depth.
