Dirk Braeckman - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
When we see photographs by the Belgian artist Dirk Braeckman installed in museums, we seem to be looking at photographs that aspire to the condition of painting. They are large — he likes them to be life-size. They are unglazed— he wants no interruption to the eye. They demand as slow an act of looking as any painting. They have the same richness and variety of tones of grey as works by Richter or Celmins.

Yung Cheng Lin 2.0

Yung Cheng Lin - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
The elusive fine art photographer Yung Cheng Lin is Tainan, Taiwan based. His deliberately placed subjects and their unhinged poses leave you questioning what mysterious scenario is being played out. All his photos give you the sense that they are scenes from an abstract horror film. That's what I love the most about his photos. They don't seem to relate to each other, but once you look through them a story starts to emerge.
