Aesthetica Premio de Arte: 5 fotografías
Fotografía nunca ha sido tan presente en nuestra vida diaria; es la forma más inmediata de la comunicación. El Premio de Arte Aesthetica celebra creadores de imágenes que están haciendo sentido del mundo de hoy. Profundizar en la longlist 2020 – mostrando cinco talentos.
¿Qué hay en el piano que evoca la nostalgia y esas emociones fuertes dentro de nosotros, incluso después de que ha vivido siglos como un utensilio doméstico? Thiery cree que la iconografía del piano está profundamente arraigada en nuestra cultura. El fotógrafo profesional autodidacta trató de explorar el instrumento desde nuevos ángulos, lo que resultó en el Requiem pour pianos serie – en contraste con los interiores abandonados.
This series was made in New York and Chicago and has a controlled spontaneity. Robert Walker is curious by nature; his work reflects this, enjoying the intrigue of an empty room as much as a frenetic street scene. Careful subject selection and a reduced colour palette offer a timeless, almost abstract quality, simplifying the elements to their essence. The View From Here takes the angle of a surveillance camera.
Ole Marius Joergensen’s photographs are meticulously staged, honouring the legacy of cinema. With the use of theatrical light and vivid colour, the images emphasise a sense of mystery, as well as a duality between rural life and the modern world. Finding the Red is built upon childhood memories. The series reflects Joergensen’s background in film, wrapping the images in a cinematic style.
Simple-T is a fine art photographer born in Bucharest, Romania, and currently based in Nürnberg, Germany. Their work has been displayed nationally and internationally. All images from the Alone No More series were taken in nature whilst travelling through Iceland, Jordan and the USA. Though it may seem that the figures have been inserted through postproduction, they are real human beings.
In each of Arseniy Neskhodimov’s series, a modern man presents a desperate desire to be forever young. The artist started to buy seemingly pointless treatments to stop aging and somehow improve his appearance. There is no evidence that a cream or mask actually work. The irony is: we’d need a lifetime to find out which would make a difference. The portraits are evocative of Dutch painting.
