Great exhibition, big size

At the Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, you will find this fine exhibition. At the railway station downstairs.

If you go there, and got the time, I´ like to recommend it. The images are great and the idea to put them there is just as great.

The Danish photographers name is Keld Helmer-Pedersen.

You have seen some of these earlier in my blog. Many great images. The opportunity comes slow like a snail and disappears like a lightning. You better be prepared!

I picked it up in The Washington Post.

A photographer’s poetic images of paper

Whao!!! Amazing and beautiful. The best i have seen for a very long time.

I found it, to my happiness, in The Washington Post. See the whole series with the link.

“Counterpoint #11.” (Scott F. Smith) is the image above.

There is no guiding force in Scott F. Smith‘s series, “Paper,” except instinct. Beginning with a pristine sheet, Smith makes a series of clean slices. It’s an engaging process of delicate manipulations: pulling the paper, carving it, and modulating light to reveal its inner corridors.

In addition to his studio lighting setup, Smith has a collection of tiny flashlights that he uses to target nooks in his pieces. He uses them to experiment on various types of paper.

Smith is fascinated with the idea of using simple materials as a conduit for expressing different qualities of light. It started when he was a photography student and was given a “white on white” assignment — shooting a white object on a white background — to demonstrate that a huge range of tones could be produced by harnessing light. Smith has since also studied light’s interaction with stone and ice.

Having worked for years printing photographs in darkrooms before going digital, part of this project is connected to his nostalgia for the manual parts of the process. “The draw is just the physical connection,” he said, “In the old days when you had a print in the developer, or you try to massage highlights to get details. … It’s a way to stay in touch with physical, tactile engagement with materials.”

The paper in this project, though, is simply a means to an end. Although he hasn’t thrown any of his paper pieces out (“I’m a little attached,” he said), he primarily hangs on to them to show viewers what his pieces are made of. His main goal is to create abstract images that remind the viewers of other objects or emotions. The most important thing in Smith’s eyes is not the paper, but the resulting photograph.

A great idea with some great photos.

I found the article in The Guardian.

Long ago

I made this series of posters. And it was long ago. Then what did I do? Nothing much. It is that long ago that I spelled my name with a hyphen.

Don´t miss!

I am afraid I will, and I am very sorry for that. If you live close enough you SHOULD go there. Paul Biddle is a very good friend of mine, and one of the best photographers that I know. And know of. He has the gift to always creating interesting and surprising images from his imagination.

Photography  is also, among many other things, capturing dreams. Seeing the inner vision and to let that come out. Paul is one of the best. I am sure that he and his colleagues will create a wonderful exhibition that will open up your fantasy as well. Go see!
