A new series of abstract images of light by UK photographer Michael Taylor will be released on the 7th of May. The series was made at a fairground in southern France, capturing the rides with long exposures to create some really interesting moving light photography. Michael Taylor has many more images from other projects on his site below.
Now and Then is a series by a group of anonymous photographers who document the gradual decay of an abandoned school in Detroit. Each year book photo is superimposed over the existing condition. Detroitrubex have been exploring and documenting abandoned homes, schools, churches, and hospitals of Detroit in a effort to examine and understand the complicated history of the city. You can find loads more images from this and other projects on their site below.
Irish Photographer Richard Mosse collaborated with Trevor Tweeten and Ben Frost to travel to eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and document rebel enclaves and sites of human rights violations using a now defunct method of military surveillance of infrared film which he used for his previous series of works, ‘Infra’. The video below reveals the stories behind the making of the film, ‘The Enclave’ which is part of a multimedia exhibition currently showing at the RHA in Dublin until the 12th March and then Ormston House, Limerick as part of the celebration of Limerick City of Culture, 2014. ‘Enclave’ was shown at the Irish Pavilion during last year’s 55th Venice Biennale. Looking forward to seeing this when I’m home next, first time I saw his work was at Dublin Contemporary in 2011 and was the best part of the show for me.
