Unfortunately, these jpegs don’t do justice the physical presence of Marco Breuer’s works currently at Yossi Milo Gallery. Large, aggressive and featuring prominent gestures that are usually associated with abstract painting, these large photographs challenge every notion of what constitutes a modern image.

As the idea that everyone is a photographer (thanks, iPhones) spreads and photographs become merely images that are viewed on a screen, (talking about you, instagram) is it not wonderful to see the photograph reduced back to its most primal form? The Photograph as object, as evidence of a single event; created through the chemical reaction generated from destruction of a photo paper that is slowly becoming archaic.

Like this work? You might like Chris McCaw’s Sunburn series too.

When you feel two almost conflicting emotions about something, that experience is way more compelling than when you are fully convinced and that your opinion is right. When you do that something else emerges. In my daily life I spend most of my time believing all these little stories I tell myself about what I am and who I am and who other people are and what I’m doing here, who has wronged me, all this stuff, whatever it is, even if I’m just feeling sad. If I say to myself the opposite, if I describe to myself the complete opposite of the way I am thinking and feeling, these two versions sit together for a little bit in the center of my world and then something else shifts and I can’t believe either one of them. I want to make photographs like that. – Michael Lundgren. Read more here
