EK Interview: Amber Chavez

by

April 22, 2016

EK_AC_MH
In her photography, Amber Chavez speaks to the solitary subject within the confined space of their interiority. The destruction, the suffocation, the rawness, and the vices are carefully provoked. Chavez invigorates recognizable subject matter and through it, she coaxes her viewers into her work. This, in turn, suggests a certain (auto)biographical narrative. Check out Chavez's work in her EK feature from 2011!

EK Interview: Shae Detar

Shae Detar
Shae Detar's photography portrays the world she wishes to see. Borrowing from the surreality of nature, Shae paints photographs in brilliant pastels, making work that is visually stunning. Her models are predominantly naked, taking the photographs out of time, and giving them an other worldly sensation that, to quote Goldilocks, is just right. Check out her interview for more about how rad she is:

EK Interview: Hobby Buddies

Swiss Garrison (Serving the 501st Legion)
The world of Ursula Sprecher and Andi Cortellini is a foray into the diverse microcosms that we as humans all inhabit. At the microscopic level, their photography showcases a number of groups of people, all unique on a personal level, brought together by a single passion. On a macroscopic level, it speaks to the human condition, that despite our differences we can find common ground in our unique experiences. Their work revels in the human experience, and the story each of us has to tell.

Damn but do I love the photography of Julien Mauve. His range is immense, discussing everything from the future of our society and world in his ethereal and haunting abandoned cities, to the lost innocence we seem to have forgotten, to the darkness of the world and the futility of our attempts to drive that darkness away.

EK Interview: Evelyn Bencicova

EK_Evelyn Bencicova_MH
Evelyn Bencicova's photography is at once unnerving and beautiful in its symmetry, it makes a mockery of the human ability to over indulge cooperation. Her colors, whether brilliant red or quiet gray, pop out of the photograph, screaming into your eyes at the speed of light, but seemingly faster. My, oh my is her work something to marvel at. Check out her interview:

"My approach to photography and its development was almost entirely self-taught. I immediately understood what the camera could have given me in terms of experimentation and discovery of the world around me and more over of myself. Photographing has become an imperative language." -Cristina Coral
