“New”matic

New project.

Photography is one of my loves and has always been something that drives me. It just so happens that out new project is photography based. What do we always do at the start of a project? RESEARCH woo hoo. Luckily I have some prior knowledge of some photographers so I didn’t have to go on a trek, trawling through the internet to find people.

Steve McCurry

Man Ray was a pioneer in surrealist photography “He was your true multimedia all-around artist who was constantly oscillating between medium and technique and process in order to achieve a work of art”. He was a significant contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements.

Jerry Uelsmann

Jerry was the forerunner of photomontage in the 20th century in America. He captured on film and blended images together in the dark room using dodge and burn techniques. Through this he created surreal images. He uses up to a dozen enlargers at a time to produce his final images, and has a large archive of negatives that he has shot over the years.

ALEXANDER RODCHENKO

Rodchenko was one of the most versatile Constructivist and Productivist artists to emerge after the Russian Revolution. His photography was socially engaged, formally innovative, and opposed to a painterly aesthetic.
