Andrei Tarkovsky was a very popular Soviet and Russian film maker. I stumbled upon some of his photographs and with the film photography. I found them beautiful and wanted to share his book titled, ‘Instant Light’ which showcases all the photographic work he produced over the years and shares insight into his inspiration behind the fluid free photographs and the process. Here are some of the most amazing ones I found. Have fun being inspired. Feature
Discovering Dieter Roth was an important moment for me. In 2004 I chanced upon a retrospective of his work packed into a warehouse in Queens’s, New York. The warehouse was Moma’s tempoary home at the time and the show was huge with a bunch of rooms dedicated to his printing activity. The security had to literally drag us out of there. Roth produced a huge body of print works in his lifetime. Experimenting, manipulating and combining the different stages of every available print process in his path. He was hugely inventive and unorthodox in his approach and he went on to develop new techniques of printing such as pressing meats, fruits and chocolate, often merged with traditional forms … Oh shits, Lion ice cream hits!
I have just been introduced to the amazing work of Richard Lohse, who started off creating systematic oil paintings and later went on to produce some killer prints. I love how his work looks like the dither on a low resolution digital image yet it is created by manually placing blocks of colour with perfect registration.
So, here’s a name you probably haven’t heard before! The infamous Andy Warhol. No matter what anyone says, this guy conquered the world with silk screen as his weapon. Absolute legend. I have linked you to the Warhol Museum, which has pretty much everything you need to know or see about this man.
