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.

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.

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

Tamara Stoneburner: simple scanns as a gardening journal

Tamara Stoneburner is a calligrapher and illustrator, she discovered the magic of scannography recently. Tamara's work isn't the most astonishing but her pictures show what scannography can be for many amongst us : the perfect media to "pick up on intricate details of objects that are not noticed by the naked eye" Her pictures are perfect in light, sharpness and colors. She seems to see her work more like a testimony for what she sees around her, then as an artistic form of imaging. She is also one of the rare persons that scans insects and other little creatures, and, I must admit, this makes me feel less alone !!!

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.
