photographers and photographs i am in love with right now:
pergamon museum vi, berlin, 2001; thomas struth// beautiful coloring; i enjoy the actions of the two viewers, looking up to the greecian gods as if they were exalted; i also enjoy the fact that they are paying no attention to the statues in front of them during this moment (but are both craning their necks to see the scene above).
pergamon museum iv, berlin, 2001; thomas struth; i like to imagine that this image was constructed, that the viewers of the marble pieces are actually hired models and were told to look interested. whether or not this is the case, the muddled photo mixed with the artificial lighting is beautiful.
the restorers at san lorenzo maggiore, naples, 1988; thomas struth; i am very interested in the idea of a picture within a picture; and the idea that struth created an everlasting archival image of people trying to fight the decay of paintings; it invokes inner turmoil within the picture and the maker.
employees dining area, 1986; dan graham; the colors, the confusion, the weird focus issues, the fact that every shape in this image is distorted makes it so beautiful to look at.
club, 2003; pierre huyghe; once again, a picture within a picture. beautiful.
aquarium project, 2010; pierre huyghe; this actually existed as an installation but i enjoy this documentation so much more. the organic shapes of the aquarium inhabitants and its contrast with the harsh lines of the tank are incredibly interesting and aesthetically beautiful.
