DERSIRE TO COMMUNE WITH NATURE

design squish blog

design squish blog

Youngsuk Suh:  “For the past three years, I have been living in the central valley of Northern California and this has afforded opportunities to observe a variety of human activities within natural environments. Many of these activities take place in less-regulated (or private) lands and seem to be a more direct expression of our desire to commune with nature. The images in this series are monuments to this individual desire. One travels away from civilization in order to be immersed in ’pure’ nature only to discover oneself an alternative civilized institution. Yet despite the cynicism implied in the study of modern travel, the genuine desire for close bodily contact with nature cannot be ignored. No matter how illusory the “nature” experience may be, one stands at the peak of a mountain yearning to be profoundly moved. Instant Traveler collects these traces of longing”

SEASCAPES - HIROSHI SUGIMOTO - SEVEN DAYS SEVEN NIGHTS

hiroshi sugimoto

seascape gelatin silver print

SEVEN DAYS SEVEN NIGHTS is a title of the show in Gagosian Gallery, NY and series of gelatin silver prints by Hiroshi Sugimoto.  Photographs in the show are of the sea and its horizon in locations all over the world. The photographs are taken different in time of the day and with different exposure time. All the photographs have remarkable sense of stillness and eternity. The ocean is still and seems as though it is floating in space and we are floating with it.  Hiroshi returns to the same subject repeatedly to reveal the “subtleties that he finds in the primordial sea, site of the origin and emergence of life as well as of eternal continuity”.
Hiroshi Sugimoto was born in Tokyo. In 1970 he moved to Los Angeles to study photography at the Art Center College of Design. Now he lives and works in New York City and Tokyo.

RABBITS IN THE SNOW ??


rabbits in the snow

This photograph is by Andrea Galvani.  Andrea Galvani was born in Verona, Italy in 1973. He lives and works in Milan and New York.
It looks like the rabbits were relocated to the North Pole or are trying survive Ice Age.  I think this photograph can be about global warming and mass extinction.

ANGIE SMITH LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY

design squish blog, surfers, seals, tiny peopledesign squish blog, village landscape, civilization v.s nature

One of my favorite online galleries, Humble Arts Foundation featured photographs of Angie Smith.  I instantly fell in love with her artwork.  Angie’s photographs remind me of Chinese ink landscape paintings where a person is the size of a small ant lost in between giant mountains, fields and forest. In these photographs, civilization, humans, society is in the conflict with nature, elements and gravity.
