MAR ORDOÑEZ | THE JOB OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER IS SILENTApril 17, 2014

Mar Ordoñez is an artistic and conceptual photographer who learned to shoot in black and white. However, in her work she combines her most personal black and white photographs with colourful and narrative editorials that have their most direct model in the French Nouvelle Vague. This is because of the similarities in the colour palette, but also because of the silences in the stories. As Mar states: “the job of the photographer is silent too”. Her works have appeared in magazines such as Vice or Oyster, besides having shot several campaigns for Bershka.

NOMAD COFFEE PRODUCTIONS | NUEVOS AIRES PARA EL CAFÉApril 17, 2014

NOA YEKUTIELI | RESEARCHING MEMORY THROUGH PAPER-CUTTINGApril 15, 2014

In her elaborate two and three-dimensional works, Israeli artist Noa Yekutieli relies but on a simple set of artistic tools – black paper and a knife, which require only a skilled hand and a creative mind to guide them. Yekutieli is, undoubtedly, as technically accomplished in her chosen medium, paper-cutting, as she is creative, having taught herself the technique and established a distinct visual voice of her own. Extensively exploring the nature of memory and longing, she lets the relatable stories unfold themselves from a basic premise and creates a reality in which viewers can attempt to comprehend the full complexity of remembrance.

CUADERNO BRILLANTE | UNA GUÍA DE PRODUCCIÓN LOCALApril 15, 2014
