Inspired in July

Every week I introduce several artists that inspire me on my visual diary on tumblr, inspired by 7188. This blog post is a distillation of all the good stuff.

In last month’s issue many non-photographers caught my attention for no particular reason. This month, the focus is more on photography again, although behind the scenes I have had a lot of input from painters, illustrators and other artists in July. Who knows, eventually some of them might find their way here.

To see more works of each artist, check inspired by 7188 for my personal preferences, or check the artist’s pages directly.

Enjoy!

Irenaeus Herok caught my attention with his series “Bondi Haze” – with scenes that could be happy summer sunshine scenes, but covered with haze and shot from an unusual angle. Be sure to check the other shots in this series.

Andreas Poupoutsis is one of the big discoveries this month. His portraits are super creative and visually as well as emotionally pleasing like (insert any cheesy metaphor you can think of). Taken from his website:

Andreas Poupoutsis is a Cypriot Conceptual Photographer/ Graphic Designer based in New York. His photography explores graphic shapes / elements as well as odd and mysterious portraiture.

Harry Cory Wright, landscape photographer (and a pretty interesting one at that), brought out a photobook called “Hey Charlie”. In it he works quite a bit with smoke and pyrotechnics (not what you would usually associate with landscape photography, would you?) and one of the photographs is the one here. No idea what you think, but I love it.

Akif Hakan Celebi uses colors very much to my taste and series like his Bloomwood one, where this photograph is from, have something to them that makes me look at them for longer than usual. And no, not only the colors… maybe it’s the model, facing the camera straight on, staring at me. Haunting. Love it.

Akif Hakan is an American photographer of Turkish origin. He is currently based in Hong Kong, Istanbul and London.

Last but definitely not least, let me introduce to you: Jon DeBoer. Fascinating light/shadow plays, interesting angles. Not exactly sure if this can even be called street photography, but whatever drawer you want to put it in, it’s very much to my taste. Much recommended.

Hope you enjoyed these artists as much as I did. If you did, consider sharing the goodness. Until next month!
