Zeb Andrews is an amazing photographer. I found out about him a while ago from flickr. I never really noticed the camera he used to photograph till recently. Mr. Andrews uses a Hasselblad 500C take these black and whites. It’s pretty old, but from reviews I’ve seen from people, they really like it. It’s a medium format camera. I love how he really goes to the shoreline to get these photos. It seems as if he lays the camera on the wave to really get the depth of field thing going..yea. Anyways, please take a look at his awesome work.
I guess you never really notice the emptiness of a store. It’s almost as if its a portal into a different world, or at least that’s what Mr. Levi thinks. The concept is a bit haunting. The exposed area with no one in it, just standing there doing absolutely “nothing”.
Artist’s Statement [Levi Wedel]: “The bright spectacles in each store window promise goods and services which lay behind solid glass and locked doors making them unavailable at night. These spectacles initiate desires that cannot be quenched and solicit consumers that are not present, generating a play of signs that only point to each other.
The photographs themselves are similarly a play of signs and desires with their voyeuristic promise to disclose the private internal contents of each store which upon closer examination remain partially concealed by the limited view through doors and windows”

Alma Haser - Cosmic Surgery
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.
