THE LAZY HUSTLER - 27:02:15 - FEATURED

To describe Ricky Powell as subtly sensational - a term coined by the liguistic lothario himself-would be a trgic understatement. There is nothing subtle about the New York natie.His charm is infectious, his tales captivating, and his generosity grandiose.Sharing the company with such a sincere soul requires more than a polite discussion over coffee and the newest "it"pastry.

SILENT STORIES -13:02:15-VIDEO INTERVIEW

We recently met with Gatineau based artist, Jennifer Stewart, to discuss her exhibit “Silent Stories”. 

This collaborative piece attempts to open a dialogue between the survivors and the public about domestic violence.. Using film photography and electronic audio equipment she alters self portraits and voice recordings to create the impression of anonymity.

THE BORDER CROSSED US-10:02:15-INTERVIEW

What do you do and why?

I'm interested in using photography and storytelling to understand the world a bit better and connect with more people. Photography has shaped the way I see so it makes sense to use it to unpack different questions. 

My work always begins with a documentary process but often blends narrative, tableaux, and art history to express different ideas. The act of looking closely at, and engaging with the world helps me make sense of it.

BREACH -05:02:15-CURATED ARTIST- INTERVIEW

I do photography as a passion because it lets my body speak in great ways. Our bodies are the best representation of art. I do self-portraits not to focus on myself, but to use my body as a tool for experimentation. I enjoy struggling with my mind until there are no more weird feelings to capture. Capturing the unusual satisfies my camera.

FATED RECOGNIZANCE- 03:02:15 - CURATED ARTIST-FEATURED

I use only my iPhone to create pieces – from the original photograph(s) to the final edit. I use a series of applications with no set process. It is art by trial and error. 

I sometimes have a clear vision, and other times the end result is shaped entirely by experimentation. Some pieces are created in an hour and some take days. There is no real methodology to it, it’s a fortunate mix of inspiration and mood. 

 

"UNTITLED"- 02:02:2015 -CURATED ARTIST-FEATURED

Jen Whitaker is an American photographer and visual designer living and working out of L.A. With an attraction to imperfections, the illusion of matter and the unknown, her work is defined in sterile, icy, and dusty tones. Most of her images are based around capturing texture and structure. Flofferz asked Jen to take a photographic diary of a week of significant achievements in her life. From the discerning eye of a creative, she chose things of meaning to her as she encountered them, giving us a close up, more personal view of her L.A. life.

 

THE TOM TOM CLUB - 29:01:15 - CURATED ARTIST - EDITORIAL

Dan Cristea and a Toronto-based team took us around monumental locations in Toronto to develop a never before seen editorial shot entirely in Thomas Balint FW15 Collection, directed by Flofferz Editor-in-Chief, Ramata Coulibaly. Documented with a Ricoh Camera and iPhone, Cristea’s first-ever fashion shoot proved a success. As the co-founder of Tiny Collective, a group heading the creative movement in mobile photography, Cristea is known as an iPhoneographer, an international pioneer in the digital age of photography.

FOGGY LANDSCAPE - CURATED ARTIST -  9:7:14 - FEATURED My name is Artem, I come from Kiev." Raised in Pervomaisk, a small industrial town in the south of Ukraine, Artem is an artist who finds his inspiration in memories of the foggy landscapes and abandoned factories of his hometown; Influences that have become quite evident in his manner of photography. Lowered contrast, desaturated colors, and slightly blurred contours create the universe that Artem is able to share only through the lens of his camera. The world progresses with a sense of frivolity, so it is with this mentality that Artem showcases with his photographs the constant fading of life's moments—void of permanent stories or emotions. The movement of hair or reflections of the sun's light on the sea's surface become the protagonists of fleeting and irreversible moments.
