The latest exhibition from ART 370, “Two Heads are Better Than One” explores the idea of self-portraiture, working in teams, and using a diptych format. The photographs work together to create a relationship between two side-by-side panels. The students drew inspiration from visiting artists and Western alumni Lindsay Borden and Adam McRae, who shared their experience and expertise using lighting studio equipment and Photoshop techniques, respectively. The final works will be on display November 4-25, 2013 in the Fine Arts Exhibition Hall, at the north end of the Fine Arts Building.

Looking at some local photographers I came across this series of highly reflective objects: “Reflection” by Lisa Rickey – Seattle MFA Photographer. http://curiousimagery.com/wp/2010/06/reflection-by-lisa-rickey-seattle-mfa-photographer/. This was an exploration of how materials behave with light and angles and their visual transformation
An interesting take on light writing which could be relevant to people for the Day/Night project. It involves a bit of fire if that interests people. The video is muy boring and kind of annoying but you probably don’t have to watch the whole thing to get the idea.
I can’t say I am a huge fan of sports photography, but Walter Iioos Jr. has changed my mind a little bit. Originally form New Jersey, he photographs for Sports Illustrated. I am especially interested in his older work (man, there’s just something about film and old school sports uniforms…?) Click the first link to see a compilation of some of his older work, and then the second is the link to his website so you can see more recent stuff.
