Visual artist Cynthia Greig collects everyday objects and whitewashes them with ordinary house paint to devoid them of color or label. Then draws directly onto their surfaces with charcoal to create visual hybrids that appear to vacillate between drawing and photography, black-and-white and color. No digital manipulation is involved, but the camera’s monocular point of view is imperative.
My series of photographs, Representations, explores the concept of photographic truth and its correspondence to perceived reality. As a kind of playful homage to William Henry Fox Talbot’s treatise, The Pencil of Nature, the images combine color photography and drawing to create what I like to call photographic documents of three-dimensional drawings.

Amazing photo-manipulations from conceptual photographer Yves Lecoq combining antique style, noir humor and surrealism.
Inhabiting the border between photography, performance and sculpture, Scarlett Hooft Graafland’s photographs are records of her choreographed live performances. Anthropologically curious, her ideas emerge directly from the local mythology. Fascinated by the surreal beauty of the harsh natural landscape she utilises this as her canvas.
Artist David Niles has taken his son’s interests and produced them in delightfully spectral, vintage style photos that illustrate a small boy’s place in his own imagination.
These are photographs of my son, pictured in a world of fantasy and imagination. A world that children occupy a good deal of the time. They are my interpretation of his world.
Experimental photographic work by Brazilian artist Juliana Manara.
“MiniB was my imagination and now I am being able to make it visible through a playful, humorous photographic work. With fantasy it simulates some observations of human life. Each work brings ideas of feelings, facts or attitudes. It introduces multiple meanings with the universality of landscapes, sometimes surreal environments and always a good relationship between human and other animals or the needy relation between humans and material things. MiniB invites us to dialogue about our existence and also can claim to some absurdities of the human conditions. Sometimes it simulates a lost mind, sometimes the challenges or obligations or a very peaceful moment.”
