More than Photography
A blog where I collect work that differs from conventional photography, work that pushes the boundaries between photography and mixed media, as well as other things that catch my eye.

Daniel Kukla - Captive Landscapes
Artist’s statement:
"We as humans go to great lengths to satisfy our desire for a connection with the natural world, especially in our interactions with wild and exotic animals. Zoos are the primary site for this relationship, but they often obscure the conflicts inherent in maintaining and displaying captive wild animals. In this series, I photographed the interiors of animal enclosures at 12 different zoos across the US and Europe. These images invite the viewer to question the role of these constructed habitats, and explore the motivations behind collecting, preserving and controlling the natural world."

In the 1970’s and 80’s photographer Joel Sternfeld photographed across America to create his series “American Prospects”. Using the culture that he found during his travels, Sternfeld had an uncanny eye for the absurdity in each scene. From a fireman buying a pumpkin from a farm stand in front of a burning building to a family looking over the edge of the Glen Canyon Dam with a baby in a play pen behind them appearing unsupervised and staring at the photographer, each image invites the viewer to explore the potential disasters and absurd scenes that each photograph conveys.

"In the first place, doesn’t uneasiness about one’s existence spring precisely from a sort of luxurious dissatisfaction at the thought that one may not be living fully?"
