One day, I’m going to do something just for myself. I’m going to travel somewhere new, leave everyone and everything behind and never come back. One day soon I hope.
We’re always on the lookout for that perfect angle that will set our photographs apart from the rest. But just when you think you’ve got all the bases covered, along comes two separate artists who will prove you wrong.
First up is Berlin-based photographer Menno Aden. Creating an original series of photographs entitled “Room Portraits”, Aden captured images of various living and public interiors by installing a camera on the ceiling, resulting into seemingly two-dimensional yet symmetrical compositions of the rooms.
Saya Chontang’s soft, dream-like Polaroids might stem from or fall into the category of fashion photography, but by collaborating closely with her models (many of them local artists), she captures not only each individual’s particular beauty, but also a glimpse of what beauty means in general.
Born in Thailand and raised in France, Saya Chontang studied art including drawing, painting, and engraving from a young age. At just 16 years old, she found her ideal instrument, a Polaroid camera older than she was, with which she photographs artists around Paris, where she lives.
