“The series has three distinct stages. Firstly Alma photographs her sitter, then prints multiple images of the subjects face and folds them into a complicated origami modular construction, which then gets placed back onto the original face of the portrait. Finally the whole thing is re-photographed.”
From Public Delivery: In 2010 Minelli started taking photos of smoke-bombs in romantic landscapes to juxtapose the beauty of nature with the violence of a medium devoted to create chaos with a stunning result.

Four photographs from Hiroshi Sugimoto’s “Theatre” series. Sugimoto: “One evening I had a near-hallucinatory vision. Suppose you shoot a whole movie in a single frame? And the answer: You get a shining screen. Dressed up as a tourist, I walked into a cheap cinema in the East Village with a large-format camera. As soon as the movie started, I fixed the shutter at a wide-open aperture, and two hours later when the movie finished, I clicked the shutter closed. That evening, I developed the film, and the vision exploded behind my eyes.”
A noisy photo I took of my friend Jess this summer. ‘Shoot, print and repeat’?
