Spotlight on Damián Siqueiros, the Visual Artist

Montreal-based image maker Damián Siqueiros prides himself on pushing the boundaries between art & photography in a way that transcends reality. His body of work is more than a collection of images. Each individual image that he produces elicits conversation and evokes strong emotion. So much so that the first time Susan Baraz, AtEdge’s Director of Photography, came face to face with Damián’s work, the words that came to her mind were “gorgeous,” “inspiring” and “visually transporting.”

In both his commercial and collaborative work, Damián puts immense effort into every detail — from art direction and stage design to make-up and styling.  This multi-disciplinary approach helps clients like Vogue Mexico, Elle Mexico, Ford, Les Grands Ballets Canadien, and Porrua bookstore find a visual voice and make an emotional connection with their audiences. We think he is one of the most photographically compelling artists working today!

Lennette Newell’s Ani-Human Project

Wild is an adjective we often use to describe animals, reflecting the distance separating our civilized lifestyles from the outlying natural world.

In Lennette Newell‘s Ani-Human series, the gap between humans and wild animals is diminished, along with any hierarchy that has been imposed by the technology of man. The series portrays the certainty that a tranquil co-inhabitance can exist, and therefore the possibility that it could propagate.

Each subject, whether animal or human, is equal. Although the human subject could even be seen as subservient, trying to mimic the grace and physical beauty of the animal, yet imperfectly. An observation that is emphasized by the animals’ effortless elegance placed in both a man-made studio and an environmental backdrop. Together without a spatial barrier, an original relationship unfolds between the animal and the human, a peaceful coexistence that is not exploited by the somatic dominance of the animal, who could in a time period of seconds curtail the human’s life.

Snapshots of these interactions convey a joint persistence, though it is safe to say these interactions do not persist in space and time.

Markku Lahdesmaki Teams Up With M&C Saatchi for San Diego Zoo

Markku worked with the team at M&C Saatchi to create compelling imagery for San Diego Zoo’s 100-year Anniversary celebration.

The images featured extraordinary, giant animal puppets used for “The Journey”, a musical processional honoring the Zoo’s history and the quest to end extinction.

In explaining why Markku was selected to bring the concepts to life, Art Producer Brian Bushaw of M&C Saatchi stated: “There were a few key factors that led to awarding the job to Markku. The shots were challenging composites, requiring special attention to lighting and detail in the studio, as well as forethought into the backgrounds we’d be stripping into. Markku is a master of both, as his portfolio demonstrates.”

2 out of 3 images just recently received top honors in the AOP’S 2016 Photography Awards. The Elephant took Best-Of-Commissioned Advertising Single Image, while the Flamingos placed in the top 12. Both images will be featured in the AOP Awards 2016 book.

Markku is represented by Brite Productions. Take a look at his fascinating body of work through his AtEdge portfolio and at markkuphoto.com.

Photography Meets Origami in Marc Tule’s Project for Google

Google enlisted the help of Marc Tule to create captivating imagery using the origami art of Joseph Wu.

According to Marc:

At first glance, the project looks like a simple ‘white on white’ but to get the final style we tested over 20 different white and off-white smooth & textured art papers. In addition, we tested various lighting & shadow and the interaction with the Google Maps that were applied in post.”

About Marc

Marc has worked as a commercial photographer since 1995 and has consistently produced work that exemplifies creative energy, mastery of lighting and his burning desire for precision. Inspired by nature, unique products, and his personal experiences, Marc’s work is constantly evolving as he continues to work with the likes of Intel, Toshiba, Sony & Samsung.
