Ricarda Redeker, “White Sands”, archival digital print

German photographer, Ricarda Redeker, focuses on the land and the sea, with two series of photographs. White Sands captures the “snowy” aspect of the New Mexico National Monument’s landscape. Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin and almost alien in nature, the landscape feels otherworldly and transcendental. Her Seascapes take the viewer from the desert to the seashore where once again, nature transforms and amazes us. This adds a new dimension: the vast power of water. Redeker captures the world from different perspectives and explores the possibilities of digital photography.

John Bernhard, “Wood #5” (detail), 2012, from the “MetamorFaces” series, archival digital print

John Bernhard is a Swiss-American artist based in Houston. His images celebrate and acknowledge both the metamorphosis of material forms and the notion of chance. In this series MetamorFaces, the transformed portraits are subtle and disturbing. Bernhard’s portrayal of the face questions the notion of what constitutes beauty. Bernhard’s Unintended presents the unplanned yet surprisingly beautiful results of overlapping imagery. While in China to oversee the printing of one of his favorite books, A 20 Years Retrospective, Bernhard was at the printer waiting for the press check. During the process of checking the print sheets, papers were used that were printed with other images from the prior printing of a job. The results were astounding.
