Alex Constable

Alex Constable has a really great eye and his photographs immediately stood out to me when I encountered them in our school’s corridors; I had no idea at the time that he was actually a painting major. Bringing the same concerns into his photography, collages and paintings, he mixes iconic imagery with a more pop, terrestrial aesthetic, creating alluring images charged with a new layer of mysticism.

Alex is originally from LA and graduated in 2013 with a BFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. He now lives back in LA where he works in his beautiful studio behind a pink garage door, which I was lucky to visit this winter.

California Winter Part 2

Here is a glimpse of some of the things I saw this Winter around California. I got a bad batch of film (lucky me) which is why some of the photos are strangely grainy and casty.

Fred Lahache

Fred Lahache’s photographs have a really distinct palette and feel that instantly drew me in, unifying portraits, still lifes and landscapes under one same aura. They constrain our eyes to carefully cropped compositions, transforming reality into magnified surfaces with a soft, magical glow.

Fred is a self-taught photographer from Tours, France, currently living and working in Paris. He is a contributor to the great blog Freunde von Freunden and has been featured in the latest issues of piK Magazine and Synonym Journal amongst others.
