Classic but with a nostalgic mood: Clare West

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…

Two new artists on our site

I had not much time in the last weeks but here we go again… I have to present you 2 new artists : one for july and one for august. A great summer in a way.

Werner Abel, for july, is a german artist who is fascinated by the possibilities of the flatbed scanner. He is presently publishing the first german book about scannography at Nardelli publishing.

Luis Castelo, for august, is a spanish artist who teaches photography at the Fine Arts University in Madrid. His images are like nothing comparable, between scientific views and graphic design.

Please leave comments about these two interesting guys…

How many amongst us have managed to find a publisher ?

After a chat with Patri, I was just wondering if publishers, somewhere in this amazing world have had the courage to publish a book about scannography. I see that sometimes books use scannography for their image content (more and more when flowers or plants are concerned). I also see that sometimes books about new technics of capturing images or processing images, have a chapter that gives a place to our technic. But how many books are now devoted to scannography.
Being in France, I may miss lots of things that happen in the rest of the world, so if you can share your knowledge.
By the way, we have a page called "bibliography" on the site and it may need an update.

So please send me whatever book you know that is a real scannography book…

New artist for late december - Stewart Nelson

The artist for this month is finally on the site.

His name : Stewart Nelson. His work is mainly based on leaves and fronds and bright colors. Stewart doesn't hesitate to alter the natural colors to arrive at the result he wants. His images are strong, simple and appealing. Hs compositions focus mostly on one main element and that gives strength to the whole picture.

Janet Dwyer - floral scanns for a poetic view of the world

Janet Dwyer has won some important prices (In 2007 the world’s most prestigious photography competition, the Pilsner Urquell International Photography Awards). Her attention to details and moods gives strenght to her images as well as a kind of poetry not missing some humor ! She doesnt hesitate to add other elements to the flowers and compose them so our imagination can play and see much more then the flowers she has scanned…
Take a look at the main site as well as on her own site.
