Dan Schmahl’s work is a very thoughtful combination of photographs, videos, books, installations and 3D models. He creates stunning images in which mystery prevails, and that he combines to form greater, enigmatic wholes.
Originally from Texas, Dan has lived in Tallahassee, Florida since 2007. He earned a BFA in Studio Art with a minor in Art History from Florida State University in the winter of 2012, and is currently the Lab Manager for the Photo and Digital Media departments at FSU. He also runs a small risograph book press called ‘super hit press’ that puts out small editions of artist books and zines, mostly for himself and his artists friends.
P.S: check out the links section, I recently updated it with lots of great reading & inspiration resources!
Alexandre François collects bleak, beautifully grainy observations of his surroundings with a rhythmic pace. His pictures feel placeless, only unified by a certain kind of light and matter. They achieve to unite stone and concrete, broken glass and gravel, cliff and pavement under one same sun-drenched light.
Alexandre, also known as the mysterious ccclxxix, is a self-taught photographer living in Paris, after some years spent in the South of France. With Clara Prioux, Margaux Roy and Fred Lahache, he is one of an unexpectedly growing group of talented Parisian photographers on these pages, who all help me feel a little more connected to where I came from despite the distance. I can’t wait to meet them all in person one day.
