For many, mornings under the circumstances of modern capitalism are characterized by the advent of a communal voyage to work—namely, commuting. The sphere of commuting is one in ever-present flux and motion in which time and place become ambiguous. We fall into a state of quasi-death and timelessness once we board the train, as the day only begins once the destination is reached. Del Bascus brilliantly stops time in the journey to and from work—she captures stillness and certainty in a realm that is oft wholly ambiguous.
Wendy Morgan's work is not exactly what we would call "easy viewing". In contrast to some recent features that have focused on soft tones, grainy textures and muted colours, Morgan's work is bold, bright, and decidedly stark.

It places … Continue reading Queer Atlanta Captured by Logan Case
Oleksandr Demianenko's work is best examined with care and an eye for detail. While looking at his photo of a bookshelf, one can almost hear a creaking door or distant footsteps - while his photo of a beachside palm brings the sound of waves lapping against the shoreline and the cry of gulls to the … Continue reading Cheating Death with Oleksandr Demianenko

Is it mixed media, or a form of nonphotography instead? Perhaps, in this brazen digital age such questions are mute. Whatever else it may be, it … Continue reading Emily Hawkins’ Visual Bildungsroman
While scrolling through Connar Masotti's photos, one can get the sense that they are leafing through pages of old family photos. The glazed-over, dreamy feel of Masotti's images are reminiscent of snapshots of every day life, veiled under a thin layer of protective plastic, and carefully bound in an aging album. Masotti lives and works in … Continue reading Glassy Banality By Connar Masotti
