Some Other Place by Lori Nix

Some Other Place by Lori Nix

American photographer Lori Nix creates scenes based on the style of classic landscape painters of the schools of Romanticism. Nix is a traditional photographer and she constructs her subjects rather than finding it. All of her photos are done in front of a camera with no digital manipulation. This photo project Some Other Place is one of her projects which display a world between a reality and illusion.

Lori Nix is interested in depicting danger and disaster but she mixes it with a touch of humor. She was born in a small town in Kansas and every season brought its own drama that inspired her to recreate this experiences in one of her photo projects Accidentally Kansas.

Nix said, “Photography is very subjective and every person will come away with something different from the same picture. My personal opinion is that photography should elicit some form of emotion in the viewer, be it awe, anger, or humor. Photography should also introduce the viewer to a new perspective.”

India Song by Karen Knorr

Karen Knorr‘s works portrays the visual richness found in the stories of India using sacred sites to highlight caste, femininity and its relationship with the animal world.

In her most recent photography project, the “India Song”, each finished photograph is both a mystery and a fable. She recreated the Panchatantra – an ancient Indian collection of animal fables for the 21st century and blurred the boundaries between illusion and reality. She inserts the animal subjects by digital means within the consistently frontal interior photograph. These interiors are carefully photographed with a large format analogue camera and Knorr’s own photos of live animals are then inserted to the rooms and sites.

The India Song is her first solo show in United States. The series was also nominated for the 2012 Deutsche Borse Photography Prize.
