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.

Hello everybody.

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 :

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.

Irina Yanikova

Beautiful new pictures on the site.

Irina 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 did.

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…

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…

gardening photo contest

A scannography contest on a Gardening site. A bit late to present this but I wasn't aware of it earlier. Anyway, it's nice to see that scannography becomes used by everyone. This contest is a good example of that.

"Gardening Gone Wild" is a blog about gardens (did I figure that out by myself ?). They organize photo contests regularly. October theme was scannography.

The contest results are presented here, and you will see it's classical flower scanns but some very nice pictures amongst them.

Let's hope other scanography contests wil take place everywhere…

Richard Dawson, drawings with grass…

"When the market traders had left, there were discarded flowers left on the road squashed into the ground, but still beautiful. I wanted to capture this beauty and scanning was the best way to create such movement and action with a still object."

This is how Richard Dawson started scannography. This photographer and artist has since developped lots of styles by using his scanner. I let you discover them on the site. Here a few images to give you a first approach :

Don't hesitate to go this own website where you can discover a large range of styles and works

Algis Kemezys and his Preraphaelite flowers…

Our new artist on scannography.org, Algis kemezys, is well-known photographer who creates scannographies since years now.He explain his work :
"I called them PreRaphaelite because they follow the "rules" of those mid-nineteenth century poets and painters. They have unconventional compositions (unlike any flower arrangements I have ever seen in photos or paintings); there are pyramidal groupings (stacking); there is of necessity more light on one side of the image than the other, causing an unnatural depiction of the subjects; and there is absolutely a great emphasis on shadow and tone to let the colours fend for themselves and work within the structure of the image."

His images are colored in a very special way, like no other. The strange emanations coming out and slipping through the images, give a sense of weirdness and a strength to Algis's creations. If you want to know more about this artist, he gives a lot of informations on his own blog.

The spirit of the flowers : Roberta Bailey

Yes I know, flowers, flowers, when it comes to scannography it always comes to flowers.

But Roberta Bailey (she has her own website here), brings the subject to a new level. At least to my eyes. She plays with colors, transparencies, and lights without crashing the simplicity of the elements she presents. Her creations are just perfect. The essence of her body of work seems to be beauty, something that gets more and more lost in Contemporary Art. That's maybe why we are not looked at as artists, but as some bunch of amateurs playing with scanners !!!
Go and see these images (on scannography.org) , I think you'll be amazed too (especially if you like flowers as much as Modern Art, which I personnaly do, being open minded is important these times).
I hope she will touch a large public and so help scannography get it's way forward.

Flowers, vegetables and humor

The second artist of september is named Al Gabor, a development research analyst.

His passion for gardening and photography has lead him to scannography. This seems to be a very common way amongst us, scannographers ! Al Gabor plays with colors and forms but also with humor and sensuality !
A classic scannographer but his images are beautiful and a pleasure for the eyes ! You can discover more of these on his own site.
