#WorldPhotoDay: many people attribute the medium of photography with the click of a camera. But there are methods that bypass the use of a camera altogether! Penelope Davis utilizes the #Photogram method; a historical process of laying objects onto photographic paper and shining a light onto both to leave a sort-of silhouette.

Proud owner of King Blade X10 Metal #146 and #147 out of the 500 total manufactured pieces. They operate the same as the X10IIIs but without color tuning (I'd say IIs but it only takes switch A to turn them on). They are actually pretty beefy in terms of weight. They only came with shining tubes but I plan on using super tubes with them. If you're curious about them, ask me to see them IRL when you see me again.
Hopper Meditations (2012-2013), by Richard Tuschman.
Archival Pigment Prints | 18”x24”, 24”x36”, 43”x63” | Editions: 9, 6, 3 respectively with 1AP each edition.
The Hopper Meditations series, is a lushly colorful body of work, inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper.
These meticulously constructed photographs are made from a combination of hand-built doll-house sized dioramas, and life-size models that have been digitally composited into the resulting scenes. With Tuschman's photographs, we witness a more sombre mood than Hopper, lighting that is less harsh and artworks that point to other key inspirations of the artist, such as the chiaroscuro paintings of Rembrandt.
Although the figures depicted in the Hopper Meditations are rooted in the mid-twentieth century, these intimate dramas evoke timeless and universal themes such as solitude, alienation and longing.
