I introduce you to Elle Muliarchyk’s fresh and original photographic project entitled “Dressing Rooms” that sometimes even gotten her into trouble! I was seriously impressed by Elle’s guerrilla style shots and I think that her own words are ideal to describe her creative and fearless concept:

Over period of three years I sneaked into the most expensive designer boutiques in Paris, London and New York, setting a mini-studio the dressing rooms and taking self-portraits wearing their most amazing dresses. I brought crazy props too, like pieces of furniture, 5-feet long guerrilla paw, potted plants, backdrops, pets, food etc... If the store discovered me they would either kick me out with an embarrassing scene or even call the Police. Once I was taken to the Police Station and after they took my fingers\ prints I explain everything and the Police Officers asked me to email them the pictures so they could show it to their wives!”

Elene Usdin is no doubt one of the most inspiring artists I’ve recently discovered. Her portfolio is rich in concept, technique and most importantly creativity & imagination!

It was very difficult for me to choose a theme from her projects portfolio. Her “Femmes d’ interior” series focuses on the interpretation of women’s role in society through a deconstructive and symbolical manner. As the artist notes: “In this series of pictures on “Femmes d’intérieur”, I want to play with the codes, to re-arrange them, giving a cushion or a chair or a pair of shoes the same attention as the subject. It’s my way of depersonalizing the woman, of turning her into (perhaps what she always was): the object, the woman-object. Upending things in effect poses the question: what is the social status of a woman? The reference to “great classics” of painting is a good way to illustrate how a woman is corseted by her rank and the social position of her husband or her own family. The idea of painting “in the style of”, copying the classics, is a way of making each photograph unqiue. It’s an additional way of personifying each of these women, of giving them back their difference and their originality.”

Lost America is the name of Troy Paiva’s photographic project in which he has explored and captured the abandoned urban side of America by the light of full moon.

His lighting techniques are simply amazing and the atmosphere of his work makes me search for words! As I read in his site: In addition to countless contributory appearances in print and on the web, Troy’s surrealist night photography has been published in two monographs: "Lost America" in 2003 and the award winning "Night Vision" in 2008. Both books examine the evolution and eventual abandonment of the communities, structures and social iconography spawned during 20th century America's western expansion--and the modern Urban Exploration culture that finds strange comfort in dancing through its ruins.”

A very interesting conceptual photo gallery by Ina Photography where it seems that all of her subjects are captured in unusual poses, thus experimenting a different level of interaction with the environment they find themselves into.

It seems to me that stillness of the moment is what the photographer is attempting to capture. As I read in the intro of her site: “It is a world in which every word spoken speaks just to that moment, every glance given has only one meaning, each touch has no past or no future, each kiss is a kiss of immediacy”.

Levi van Veluw’s original project experiments with various materials and focuses on slight perception shifts that are evoked by transformation. The expressionless face functions as a white canvas on which all change takes place.

The fact that these shots haven’t been digitally manipulated and each image contains a short history of a performance is truly admirable! Human sculpture!

As the artist notes: “The unusual and unimpressive materials, traces of glue and other imperfections that exist in the production of the work are what form the aesthetic value in my image. This revaluation of these normally insignificant elements only occurs because they now exist in a new context that distances them from their original circumstances and associations. During this process I became more and more aware that all objects, materials, events are assigned a commonly held value, but that this valuation could just as easily be different.  It was those elements that nobody had an opinion about that then became most interesting to me. Because they seem to contain little meaning to people, they are malleable and can easily have their perceptions about them altered.”
