13 Queens by Alex and Felix

Rulers over surreal worlds.

“There are unfamiliar worlds waiting to be discovered, filled with very well known objects of our everyday life yet staged in an unexpected way beyond recognition, draped with exuberant costumes of various shapes and colours. The insignia of power, the signs of their dreamland, hang from their bodies, stick to their skin and surround the sphere of their heads. These queens have truly incorporated their sensual empire. Every single one a proud queen, patron saint of ornaments, ruler over an empire of symbols, inviting the viewer to lose oneself.” These are the exact words that describe Alex and Felix‘s photography project 13 Queens that is taken from their website.

Alex Gertschen and Felix Meier are Swiss photographers creating photographs in an imaginative world, often absurd and surreal. The models, objects and props are carefully constructed before being to give a magical look. Each queen represent different personalities and stories.

Children by Loretta Lux

Loretta Lux is know for her portraits of young children, where most of them are her friends’ kids. These portraits are digitally altered to resemble the aristocratic formality of Old Master paintings.

Lux first studied painting at the Academy of Visual Arts in Munich before she pursued photography in 1999. Influenced by old-age painters, she dresses the children in vintage clothing and props. Her surreal portraits became metaphors for childhood innocence.

Her earliest works include set against icy blue skies – Troll (2000), Lois (2000), and Isabella (2001). When she moved to Ireland, she began to shoot pairs of children rather than solitary ones.

Lux’s work has been exhibited in many museums like Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA, the National Museum of Art in Osaka, Japan, and the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland.
