Things come apart
Toronto-based photographer todd mclellan, explores retro to modern daily items that have, are, or will be in our everyday lives. displayed within the exhibition, every piece of various household items - a phone, lawnmower and typewriter - are meticulously taken apart, and arranged in an organized composition. in another take on a childhood fantasy, mclellan photographs the disassembled pieces as he ejects them into mid-air, allowing pieces to rain down in an explosion-like fashion - offering a commentary on obsolete technologies from the past.
French artist Bernhard Pras is a master of anamorphosis, which involves carefully placing objects so that when viewed from just the right vantage point the intended image can be seen. In this piece, Bernhard has created a portrait of Sotigui Kouyaté, an actor from Mali. To construct the portrait, the artist has placed various objects around an entire room. The portraitcan only be seen when viewed from a specific angle.
“Mike Brodie started making photographs in 2004 after he was given a Polaroid camera. As The Polaroid Kidd he spend the next 4 years traveling through the US with a sub cultural group that illegally rode trains. The images taken from this journey however were shot with a Nikon F3 35mm camera.”
An old friend is trying to raise some money on gofundme for a needed eye surgery, his 8th surgery in 5 years attempting to regain sight in his right eye.
In 2007 while at a party a fight broke out. A bottle was thrown and it missed the intended target and hit Derek in the right side of his face, shattering on impact. The glass shards caused lacerations to his orbital globe in 3 places, leaving him blind in that eye.
He has been through 7 surgeries so far; lens, retina (twice), cataract, laser(twice) and cornea transplant. The next scheduled surgery is for his oculomotor nerve.
Throughout this entire ordeal his sense of humor and easy spirit have not faltered. Despite losing his job more than once due to the missed medical time, the high cost of the medical bills he has paid and the mental anguish of losing part of his site and the repeated stress to his body.
If any of my followers can financially swing it, he could really use the donations.
