Out of Focus in Saatchi Gallery London

Photography exhibitions were awfully boring lately. You see one, you saw all of them. (Google photography awards for example - extremely boring and "seen millions times" type of images only) THEREFORE it was surprising and refreshing to find exhibition like Out of focus in one of our (let´s face it) mainstream galleries : the Saatchies.
Full of new ideas and new points of view! Also quite brave with installations and contexts, it is divers and help you discover more ideas and visual connections.
You still have couple more days to see it if you are in London or at least have a look at the website to get the  idea how cool it is.

Amazing works of Karl Doyle

I found work of Karl Doyle, New York based photographer, on the internet and was stunned immediately. His work is very classic in way how he handles form of his pictures but very new and original how he handles concepts. 
It is amazing how he range from poetic half-abstraction to fashion and 19.century style documentations.

Casa de Mujeres from Rachelle Mozman

"In my recent series, my mother plays the role of three women in one fictional Latin American home. These photographs can be read as portraits of my mother as her various selves — like a nested doll — and read as images that reveal the conflict of vanity, race and class that live within one woman, just as in one family. 

In these photographs the three women, a pair of twin sisters, one lighter in skin color and a maid, are family and they hold both love and contempt for each other in equal measure, but they are also the love and contempt housed in one woman. 

My fascination with identity of the self, and my personal relationship to my mother has moved me to make these photographs, an act that through photography and performance allows the real to bubble to the surface"

Miharu Matsunaga

I came across Miharu Matsunaga Dots portraits several times. It seems like they have been featured on every bigger photography blog. Young Miharu has background from graphic design and dots appears in her other works as well ( TEN TEN series).

I adore Miharu  Dot portraits for the silent poetry and purity that covers something deeply human and intimate.
This is something that a lot of young Japanese photographers have in common and it interesting oposite to "overwhelming" western pictures.

Denise Grunstein

Denise Grünstein is one of the best known and most highly respected profiles in Swedish photography. Her images are easily recognized for their characteristic, intensely present, highly personal and quite romantic artistic expression. 
Considered one of Sweden´s foremost portrayers of people, be they models, actors, dancers, directors or authors, she has a unique ability to imprint her own feelings and temperament on film. Besides people, nature has been another main source of inspiration for Denise throughout her career, with much of her most powerful work distiguished by often subtle natural romantic elements.

Pseudo Documentation by David DiMichele

"Pseudo Documentation, is a series of large-scale photographs depicting grandiose installations in fantasy exhibition spaces. DiMichele creates this work by first building scale models of exhibition spaces, and producing original artworks in drawing, painting and sculpture mediums, which are sited in the spaces and then photographed to create the final works. 

The Pseudo Documentation photographs are inspired by DiMichele’s background with photography, installation art, abstract forms and passion for monumental museum and gallery architecture combined to create this photographic series of work.

Quotidian Matter by Stefan Greco

Series from Stefan Greco Quotidian Matter is full of contrasts. Stefan caught the "everyday strangeness" of human life in very poetic and epic way in the same time. Moments of private meaning but still very general. 
Those little contrasts are creating a very interesting tense inside this series and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Interesting life of Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier seems to be a recent "wow" in the photography world.

"An American of French and Austro-Hungarian extraction, Vivian bounced between Europe and the United States before coming back to New York City in 1951. Having picked up photography just two years earlier, she would comb the streets of the Big Apple refining her artistic craft. By 1956 Vivian left the East Coast for Chicago, where she’d spend most of the rest of her life working as a caregiver. In her leisure Vivian would shoot photos that she zealously hid from the eyes of others. 

Taking snapshots into the late 1990′s, Maier would leave behind a body of work comprising over 100,000 negatives. Additionally Vivian’s passion for documenting extended to a series of homemade documentary films and audio recordings. Interesting bits of Americana, the demolition of historic landmarks for new development, the unseen lives of ethnics and the destitute, as well as some of Chicago’s most cherished sites were all meticulously catalogued by Vivian Maier."
