Elle Hoverkamp in the magazines

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.

Olga Guerra plays with strange moods

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 on Olga's new page.

A new artist on scannography.org: Emily Bree Richards

Emily Bree Richards is a young british artist who plays with faces, flower and emotions…
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…

A really interesting interview, profound, sensitive and full of beauty…

Still life by Christine Page

Christine Page is offering us beautiful colors and harmonies in her still life captures. Beauty seems to be the main purpose here, added to a great sense of color harmonies and textures. It's classical and original in the same time.
Her flowers are completed with symbolic elements that give a special charm and romantic mood to her creations. Take a look, it's really superb.

Random as part of Art : Danilo D'Alessio

Our new artist, Danilo D'Alessio, didn't propose much pictures but his method is a wonderfull one to follow.

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.

Call for informations

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 !

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…

The first book about scannography

Nardelli Verlag publishes the first book completely devoted to the technic of scannography. And to the Art of Werner Abel.

You discovered Werner's work two months ago on scannography.org. You can now discover it in this book. It's in german but the images are universal !
Umschlag.indd

Really, this book ist not to flip, but to swing open - like a scanner or laptop. Read this book and you never will see the nature as before. You will explore the nature in a completely new way. Enjoy it! While walking with his dog through the nature, the author, the German artist, Werner Abel, reflected on itself by collecting all what he found in fauna and flora: flowers, blossoms, leaves, grains, fruits, vegetables. Arrived at home, he scanned the found pieces with a customary flatbed-scanner.

The results have been very surprisingly and fascinating. Abel was deeply impressed. He suddenly could see details which he never have seen before and which the human eye commonly does not register. Depth of focus, quasi 3-D, from the middle to the edge. No Digicam can do this…

Reading this book, regarding the wonderful subjects captured by the scanner you can explore the beauty of the nature in a wondersome matter. Enjoy totally new insights into the nature, look inside the flowers, leaves and things. Explore details as close-up which you just have let uncared heretofore. This book facilitates a new way of looking closely. Hints to arrange your found pieces on the scanner included. Extra-Service: Scanartists from all over the world are presenting their most beautiful, impressive and stunning subjects. What a book – surprisingly, precious, different.

A french artist presents moody scanns

15_jl_aubert_100401.jpg

Our september artist is a french painter, photographer, musician AND scannographer : Jean-Louis Aubert.

His work is full of spirit, mood and strange ambiances. This artist is a complete talented one, managing various medias, he mixes his talents as well as his images.

06_jl_aubert_110120.jpg

The scanns he presentes us areof two kinds: raw scanns where he shows some natural and weird beauties, and, on the other hand, worked out montages he does from the initial raw scanns. It's strange how some of them don't look as scanns anymore. Jean-Louis has pushed the possibilities a bit further and this is one more good thing… You can also see more of his works on his own site.

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…

Robert Fleming: scannography like fairy tales

Our new artist is someone who must like fairy tales…


…and nature of course like most of us do, I'm pretty sure. Robert Fleming works out backgrounds for his scanns and gives them a very special mood. One can just imagine trolls or elfes appearing in some part of the images. Superb color arrangements, great depth of fields and wonderfull compositions make of his images, something classical in a way, yet very unique.
And looking at his images, I can also imagine (easily) that he must like fishing, but that may be another story…

And you may discover it on his own site

Birds skeletons, eggs and flowers…

… a weird combination made great by Debb VanDelinder.

Beautifull scanns to discover on our site. Debb is mixing fragile elements into powerfull and appealing images. Debb plays with the feelings she provokes and with the magic of interference between opposites symbols. The end and beginning of life mixed in a strange vision… And she sure knows how to play with light and colors with a scanner…

Now don't ask me how she proceeds. I can't explain. But Bex just sent me a step-by-step, to explain her method. So if you come back to the site in the next two weeks you certainly will get an answer.
In the mean time, enjoy the wonderfull images she shares on her page. The paintings seem alive and liquid, it's a very organic sensation, and her colors are just bursting to our eyes. You can also take a look on her personal website.

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.

Jaime Ruas strikes back…

Jaime Ruas sent us new images created in his unique and fantastic technic.

Take a look at his page to see his Art is such a personal one and it has some magic in it. His personal universe grows with his practice of scanner painting, his mixes of types, colors, forms produces a very graphical result.

Personnaly, I'm a big fan.
