Soybaby, photographer

Maybe I will reveal his real name, later, if you are lucky.

The designer Shrinkle has called him the "Fillipino LaChappelle". I must disagree. What Soybaby is doing is entirely more contemporary than anything I've seen in the last two years of LaChappelle's oeuvre.

Mycol Chauncey, photographer

He's very, very young and already doing shit like this:

When you can do a real diptych at 23 (or however old he is), you've got a career ahead of you. It's not just throwing two shots together.

I've never worked with anyone so quiet and gentle. Apparently, all of the excitement and energy is transferred directly into the camera.

He's also the proud owner of the famous San Francisco green chaise. You're nobody until you're photographed on it. It's a bit naughty, some kind of right of passage, definitely eerie.

He's interning with THE Michelle Blioux...who I'll show you in a minute...

I love this.  But, I would like you to do a further analysis on why YOU like it and why you consider this to be a "real" diptych.

Will do. I'm actually going to start some real critique. I just am so excited to get these photographs up first.

On McNeill

Though it's clear that each image is carefully thought-out, when looking at McNeill's work, I feel as if thought becomes aware of its fragmentary character. She is as aware as any artist should be. No part of the composition is superfluous. Nothing is ornamental.

It's not a revolt against "pretty" or palatable, or publishable, as much as the work is a call to the sharp, a place from which no person can dissociate herself. McNeill studies color like Rothko, unafraid of experiment, yet with an intrinsic eye. Such stillness. A still more studied than a piece of a "movie" film, a still that halts the noise in the head, demanding attention of a good number of senses, numbing the rest.

On Hsu

So much to the contrary--but not in opposition--Hsu's work is fast. In an expression of how much movement and photography as medium diverge from one another, the work meditates temporality. It's full of punctuation like the slash "/", saying Look at this / and/or this / or there's this one. It's what Manny Farber would call Termite Art, sincere insofar as the tradition itself makes itself out of the blurring of distinction between theme and occasion--worth noting that much of Hsu's work consists of photodocumentary pieces of fashion and music shows--constant and eating itself.

Agree with your picking Melissa and Miles. Worked with them both (Melissa maybe 20 times) two very talented MUA's

I don't know, this stuff really doesn't do it for me. I like the conceptual nature of work. Not work that is all shine and no substance.

Lane's work is fairly substantial. See above.

You know, it's funny. That shot wasn't taken too long ago, but, the process has evolved so much since then.

It should be noted, my aesthetic is more of a classically influenced one. Aside from people like Newton, mostly photographers like Witkin, Weston, Steichen, Pictorialism, and it's changing, I am more and more abstracting, on a Rothko-esque path.

Yes! It is exciting! I go to the SFMOMA far too often just to stare at a particular Rothko.

I always enjoy the threads that introduce me to works I hadn't seen previously even if they may not pieces that particularly enjoy.

There are 2 on here that I had not run across......thanks for sharing.

Good list.....
You're NO Schindler, but I have enjoyed it so far.
Thanks.

My friend wrote a poem after it. I'll find that too.

That'd be great. In London, at Tate Modern, there is the room of Rothko paintings. And I love just sitting there. I am reading Artist's Reality right now.

Well, I couldn't find the after-Rothko one, but here's another (and my journal owns the rights, ha ha!):

COME ON DIE YOUNG
James Meetze


Le cyne sur le lac fait le scorpion a sa maniere     --Picasso




Water moves this way, tacitly

slaking its burdens, appearing

more than its own surface.

The water is only a means of

meandering, inherent in youth

as glimpse of death, the sex of it.

What could be more baroque,

the soundscape, the interiors

fashioned from a recurring

dream? The swan as if to sing.

The swan as symbol. When

morning broke, was an oblique

reflection of ardent longing.

An eidolon of love that moves

so slowly away, through a

monologue on music or how

they say come on, die young!

Wetness is the heaviest charge.

Swimming because the weight

makes you hard. The Gauloise

blue of eyes, of seeing straight

the way Juan Gris saw a woman's

face just slightly skewed.

I am going through a thing for commercial photographers right now, so I would prefer to link to their websites after confirming they are indeed on mm as well. but, I have just done a whole bunch of cleaning, so I am too apathetic to do anything but say, Rothko rocks, and here is another non mm PHOTOGRAPHER whose Taschen book (which does much better justice to his images) is by my bedstand right now. This guy needs more press outside of the netherlands. Large format film prints hand tinted with gouache.

caution, some images are 18+

Goodness, thank you. The apocolyptic images are interesting, especially considering the tension in "centered" images.

I'm going to have to spend some time with this one...more than ten minutes. wink

So, now's as good a time as any. And then I'm going to bed. Thread will be revived tomorrow, no worries.

I'm a bit nervous about the fallout...reviewing my friends' work and all. They are going to hate me and tell me I know nothing about their work. The truth, of course, is that the conscious viewer always knows more than the artist.

Goodnight Darlings, xx!
