It's always good news to see scannography in the medias.
Elle Hoverkamp is not (until now) participating on our site, but she is
practicing scannography since the early years.
Recently magazines took interest in her work and some even took some to
create fabulous covers.
Take a look on
Ellen's website, it's always interesting.

Again months have past. So if you go to this blog you
always see the same news, sorry. Now I have lots of things to say about
scannography but don't give myself enough time to do so. But first I want to
present you two new artists I added on our main site.
Cosgrove has been added in july. Her scanns are dark but very poetic in the
same time. She is a student in graphic design and her art reflects a sensible
view of things and nature.
Shumakova, has been added in september. She is a russian photographer and
teaches theory and history of Art at the Chelyabinsk State University. Her
images play with abstraction, textures, colors and movements due to the
scanner. The result is original and strong and motivating.
I must admit I'm proud to present such talented people on my website and
that's what keeps me going on. This and the success of the site where more and
more visitors get infos…
I'll try to give some other news here next week. Keep in touch

I'm sorry I didn't post anything here since a few months. In the mean time
two new artists have appeared on the main site.
I just give you their names here. Please go the site and take a look, there are
some great images there.
The first was Kelly Keltos who
plays with fragmented images and movement while scanning :
The second is Robert Haspel, who
uses transparency in a very subtle manner.
I hope to give news more often in the future.

Sonja Beskin-Mesher is our new member on the scannography
site. Sonja is a complete artist : painting, drawing, writing. She
a serie of scanns with dolls for theme. She says : “Dolls have been used in
role play in childhood and in the adult world for centuries. Research has
proved that inanimate objects still provoke feeling and reaction.”
Her images are strong and yet pleasant to look at. I hope you'll enjoy as
much as I did.

Our new fellow artist on our main site presents very strange composition.
She seems to like subtle moods that gives a kind of thrill to the viewer.
Playing with toys and plastic objects, she composes pictures that seem to be
innocent, but what is behind all this ? Take a look and make your own opinion

Richards is a young british artist who plays with faces, flower and
Emily, in a style that comes close to Liz Atkins (another british
scannographer), is creating superb portraits with strong color moods and she
also uses the movements in her creations.
A kind of sweet and sometimes dark nostalgia emanates from her images, and she
is touching directly our feelings.
Strange and beautiful in the same time, her works have to be seen…

One of our fellow artists is presented on Copyright Alliance's Podcasts
here to visualize the interview in iTunes). Chad Kleitsch is
amongst us since 4 years and his work is getting forward as a photographer and
as a scannographer. In this video interview he explains what creating an image
means for him. A really interesting interview, profound, sensitive and full of

I received this mail from Debb. She, and I,
hopes that someone can answer her question :
I'm wondering if you or anyone in the scanography site might know where I
can get a scanner that either works in an upside down position or how or modify
a scanner for inverted use? I'd really like to make some images in this
position but my scanner doesn't work if I flip it. I read that their are
modified scanners for use in heb scanning but can't come up with how they did
this. Thanks for any direction you might be able to provide. I really need to
figure this out. I have a couple of older scanners I could hack if someone has
some clear directions. Of course if someone would just sell a reasonably priced
version that would be optimal.

Furquim is a scannographer playing with object and
In a similar way to his fellow countrywoman, Hercilia Lopes, Ronis creates
superb images on basse of strange objects and things he founds around him.
He is very active and seems to search new ways to express himself. The world
around him is like an open book in which he picks and rearrange. Take a look at
his page and discover his fine arts.

Our new artist, Danilo
D'Alessio, didn't propose much pictures but his method is a wonderfull one
This method, as he says, a tribute to Tristan Tzara (the Dada movement), is
interesting because you know surprises will emerge. Take a look on his page to
see it explained there. Some of the images (we would like to see a few more in
fact) are just strange and superb.
Have fun and don't forget to spread the word.

Beautiful new pictures on the site.
Yanikova proposes beautiful scannography compositions. There is something
fresh and original in her works. She touches a few domains and themes, mixing
objects, flowers, and all sorts of elements to create her own vision of things.
There is a very poetic mood in her creations and I hope you will like them as I

As you can all see I don't write a lot on this blog since a few months now.
But I will soon be back more actively, I promise.
So if any amongst you is interested, finds interesting things, has something
to say about scannography, the blog is open for you. I sometimes get
informations but they are not prepared and as I have little time I don't use
them (shame on me !).
So if you want things to appear on the blog, write the text exactly as it
has to appear here, without enriching it. Prepare also the images on the right
size (410 pixels large).
This site needs a bit of help. Please join in, jump, write, express yourself
See you soon… and read you soon I hope !

It's been a while since I last wrote here !
A shame because I presented Giang Nguyen Hoang
on the main scannography site last month. And he is an exceptionnel
scannographer. Dark, strange, intriguing, theses images are really appealing. I
invite you to visit his page where he mixes radiographies with scannographies.
And I implore you (!!) to scroll down his page till the bottom, you have a
little surprise at the end that will show another side of the possibilities of
this medium and of Giang's skills.

Jan O'Highway seems to be almost a classic scannographer…
…but the way she lays her compositions on the flatbed scanner is rather
original. In a way, she is telling us stories. She uses frames to show images
within the main frame.
Like in comics she plays with the juxtaposition between things to create
emotions. Blur, harsh colors, nice compositions do the rest. Take a look on her

VANITAS, October 28 - Nov 3rd 2012, at Birdwood House Gallery,
Totnes, Devon UK
Timed to coincide with Halloween, All Saints and Sanheim - when the veil
between the worlds is thin- this exhibition takes as a starting point the idea
of Vanitas, a genre that portrays the luscious delights available to us in
life, juxtaposed with symbols, such as skulls, flowers or time-pieces, pointing
to the ephemeral fact of our existence. The work of Totnesian multi-media
artists Verity Newman and Jan O'Highway examines the fleeting nature of life
with work ranging from ceramic sculptures based on the Mexican day of the Dead
to the dreamlike imagery of large-format scanner-photography prints. In the
process the artists cast an eye on the beauty existing in death, and indeed,
the vanity and folly of our precarious existence.
A tour of the exhibition can be seen on flickr - www.flickr.com/photos/ohighway

It's been a while since my last post. I'm sorry about this.
Our new artist on the site is an english photographer called Clare West. Her
images can seem very classic but in the same time there is a very special
flavour in them. A kind of nostalgia, something we find in the early
photographies of the 19th century. Textures, colors, mood, everything seems to
be diluted by the time machine !
I'm glad to count her amongst us !
Enjoy and leave some comments please…
