The Surreal Photography of Arimbi Alessandra



When 14 year olds start shooting photographs like this, it reassures me that the future of photography is in good hands. Arimbi Alessandra modestly calls herself an “aspiring photographer,” but it’s clear that she is a genuine talent. With her keen eye for color and composition, as well as a great ability to create images that seem to be moving, this Indonesian teenager is bound to go places in the coming years.

Doppelgängers: A Series of Paintings by Mark Wojahn


For his solo exhibition titled “Shadow Walker”, at the Rogue Buddha Gallery, Minneapolis-based artist Mark Wojahn will display works from his”‘Doppelgängers” series of photo paintings.

Born a fraternal twin himself, the artist’s long fascination with the alter egos of humans has manifested itself in his paintings. Wojahn transforms select photos from his portfolio (both old and new) into antique style images of our evil twins, by adding multiple layers of paint and texture on them. The results are eerie and disturbing, yet quite beautiful.

Wojahn is a filmmaker, and a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is also an McKnight Photography Fellow, who has had his works exhibited in numerous exhibitions across the U.S.

The exhibition will be on show at the Rogue Buddha Gallery from Friday, September 7th, 2012 to Saturday, September 29th, 2012.

Michael Shindler’s Brilliant Tintype Portraits



Tintypes photographs are made by capturing direct-positive images on sheets of iron, which are then blackened by painting, lacquering or enameling. Photographer Michael Shindler, a practitioner of this vintage photographic process, has a tintype portrait studio set up on Valencia Street in San Francisco. The studio has seen about 3,500 people having their portraits taken by him.

Michael’s photographs have an interesting sense of randomness to them, mostly due to the fact that he has no choice in deciding his subjects, many of whom are curious visitors to his studio. He prepares each tintype by hand, and then makes single exposures of his subjects. The tintypes are processed immediately, and can be ready in 15 minutes to be given to the customers. The lush, high contrast photographs he shoots using this process are truly unique as they are no negatives involved, and only one physical copy of each individual image exists.

The Wonderful Photography of Charoula Stamatiadou



These gorgeous and evocative photographs were shot by Charoula Stamatiadou,  a 27 year old fine art and portraiture photographer based in Athens, Greece.

Stamatiadou says she started shooting pictures “just for fun” in 2008, but a serendipitous encounter with a female wedding photographer in the city of Drama—which also happens to be Stamatiadou’s birth place—changed the course of her life. She worked and learned from the photographer for about two years, following which she decided to move to Athens and strike out on her own.

Stamatiadou adds that she is now working on custom projects, and is inspired to try and study new things every day.
