X-ray photography


They say that photography is the art of reproducing an image, with any media necessary. Well it seems like Nick Veasy took this pretty serious and he build his portfolio with pictures of people, machines, and flowers all seen via an x-ray machine.

Daily Inspiration – Objects


Been thinking for a couple of days what to shoot next. I’m creating different images with different objects and different types of light.

So I went out the web to search for some inspiration, and I found some really good images. I hope they will inspire you to grab your camara today.

Freedom


Let me introduce to you Li Wei.

He’s is a Chinese photographer that lives and works in Beijing. One day he woke up decided that he wanted to shoot people in the edge. In the edge of things, of life and the edge of buildings, but that could be kind of dangerous, so with the magic of photoshop we shooted the location first and after the people in studios and mix de photos together.

(This afirmations aren't made from the artist, they are just my assumptions of who we works)

"29 levels of freedom"

All started with a project, in 1999, named Mirror; and from there we played as much as we could with impossible things.

“I am on ice” Mirror Project

“Liwei falls to the Car”

“A pause for humanity 3”

"Live at the high place 2"

Enjoy the images!

Estaba buscando en algunas galerías de Nueva York cuando me encontré con este fotógrafo increíble: Liu Bolin.
Comenzó un proyecto fotográfico después de que la policía china cerrara su estudio en Pekín. El proyecto se llama “El hombre invisible en China”, y en sus imágenes Liu Bolin refleja cómo los chinos se sienten contra el gobierno y la represión como explico en una entrevista:

“La sociedad china está en su período de cambio que puede ser la más aguda en la historia de su mundo. Como es un estado enorme, sus rápidos cambios provocan una gran influencia en el mundo y obtienen un eco enorme, que incita e infligir graves daños a la moral y la mentalidad de las personas del país. El pasado está desapareciendo, nadie sabe cuánto tiempo podría durar el presente. Frescas son las cosas que viene.

Estas imágenes  han recogido idiomas de esculturas, pinturas, imágenes, construcciones, decoración y el drama (que componen) en la conciencia histórica y la forma en nosotros una manera de romper con esas configuraciones. Nosotros nos decimos a nosotros mismos y repetimos: “No en la escena” de los objetos cuando nos enfrentamos a estas configuraciones. El sujeto ha perdido peso visual y se desvanece como el humo. También el sujeto  es transparente después de haber sido levantado de las raíces y desestabilizado. Esto hace que las configuraciones y los métodos estén  llenos de energía pero no tengan receptor, y  que se discriminen las direcciones hasta que la ruina quede abandonada.

El pasado está desapareciendo, nadie sabe cuánto tiempo podría durar el presente. Cosas frescas vienen. Algunos de nosotros somos tan temerosos como artistas, que solo estamos animando y gritando como niños “¡Qué gracioso”,  es estar junto los artistas. “

En sus imágenes se puede ver un hombre parado invisible frente a los lugares o las cosas que refleja la cultura china. Las imágenes son realmente buenas, no sólo el mensaje sino también los colores y la composición donde se ve un paisaje y a continuación la silueta de un hombre, casi invisible. Lo más gracioso de el hombre invisible (como le llaman) es que ninguna de sus imágenes tienen retoque, en realidad tarda  alrededor de 6 -10 horas en hacer una foto porque él, con la ayuda de  sus ayudantes,  se pinta con los colores y las texturas del fondo .  Así que cuando se toma la fotografía Liu Bolin parece el hombre invisible.

I was looking into some New York galleries when I found this amazing photographer: Liu Bolin.

He starts a photographic project after the Chinese police shut down his studio in Beijing. The project is called “The invisible man in China”, in his images he is reflecting how the Chinese feel against the government and the repression. As he express in an article:

“Chinese society is in her switching period which may be the sharpest one in the history of the worlds. As such as huge state, her rapid changes make great influence on the world and gain a huge echo, these also give a great incitement and inflict heavy damage on morality and mental of individuals in the country. The past is disappearing; no one knows how long the present could be. Fresh things are coming.

These photos  works have collected languages of sculptures, paintings, images, constructions, decoration and drama(making up) in historical consciousness and how us a way of breaking away from those configurations. We say to ourselves and repeat, “Not on the scene” of objects when facing to these configurations. The subject has lost its weight and becomes disappeared as light smoke. Also the subject is transparent after it has been pulled up by root—and has been terribly stable. This makes the configurations and methods full of energy but without receiver, that means he could not discriminate the directions and makes the ruin abandoned.

The past is disappearing; no one knows how long the present could be. Fresh things are coming. Some of us are as fearful as artists, but mostly we are cheering like children and shouting “How funny” together with the artists.”

In his images you can see an invisible man standing in front of places or things that reflects the Chinese culture. The images are really good, not only the message but also the colours and composition where you see a landscape and then the silhouette of a man, almost invisible. The funny thing about the invisible man( as he is called) is that any of his images have an edit processing, actually he took around 6 -10 hours per picture because he and his assistants paints himself with the colours and the texture of the background. So when he took the image he seems the invisible man.
