Looking at Sabrina by Lizz Thabet

In the In-Between Hers is a face I recognize and know intimately. Sabrina is almost always smiling. She is every smiling white female I see in ads, mail order catalogs, Facebook photos, and family albums. I know her, her image convinces me. The truth is that I know very little about the woman behind the photograph, the 25-year-old army reservist from Lorton, Virginia, who served at Abu Ghraib prison in 2003. Along with eleven other soldiers, Sabrina Harman was convicted for her participation in the infamous torture scandal, in which Iraqi men and women were brutally attacked by dogs, raped, beaten, and forced to masturbate in elaborate scenes staged for and documented by the camera.

In Dialogue with Anastasia Samoylova

In the In-Between For the past few years, Russian-born and U.S. based artist Anastasia Samoylova has been creating imagery that breaks boundries of conventional photographic genres. Her project, Landscape Sublime, presents hybridized scenes of tabletop collages, and forms a distinct and multi-layered interrogation of photographic aesthetics, online media, and our image saturated culture...

In Dialogue with Lotte Reimann

In the In-Between German artist Lotte Reimann's project Jaunt is a series of web-appropriated imagery that has been edited to function as erotica that blurs the lines of documentary and fantasy . The bulk of the images she uses for this work were sourced froma single group of pictures uploaded online by an annonymous couple who created and shared portraits and self-portraits of themselves engaging in nude poses and sexual behaviors. Combining this imagery with pictures of cars crashing, racing and burning out, Reimann creates a fetishistic narrative that embraces a genre of literature that does not often cross over into photographic dialogue.

The Space Between by Marc Yankus

In the In-Between I’ve always been drawn to the majestic details and materials of classical historical buildings, many of which are hidden from view, tucked behind new architecture, or simply overlooked. Often discovered from rooftops or accessible from private views, I feel compelled to capture the slivers of the old, recreate the buildings to make them whole, and restructure them in...

In Dialogue with Martin Brink

In the In-Between Swedish artist Martin Brink has spent the past several years exploring methods of creating photographic work for web-based distribution. His output is seen in a range of ebooks, gifs, and pdfs, most of which are offered as free downloads, and the image-works he presents are often minimally styled expressions of time, space and movement. His latest completed work, 2014 Walks, is a PDF book that excersizes an exchange between physical and cyber experience... This post In Dialogue with Martin Brink appeared first on In the In-Between.

Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations

In the In-Between Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations is a new media artist book comprised of twenty-six screen captures culled from gas station surveillance videos found on YouTube. The book blends notions of surveillance, crime photography, advertising, and found text; which together form an incisive dark-humor commentary on advertising and violence within the framework of online consumption. Fifty-one years after the publication of Ed Ruscha’s seminal book work, Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Another 26 examines how the American Identity has shifted from the idyllic media messages and car culture of the 1950s and 60s, to the coarse post-9/11 age we occupy today.

Bitchglitch by Kellye Eisworth

In the In-Between The female form is often viewed as an object of desire. This idea permeates every aspect of popular culture. Pictures in magazines, billboards, and television shows suggest that a woman’s value is measured by her ability to please a man, creating an archetype of femininity characterized by submissiveness, unintelligence, and sex appeal. Bitchglitch is a critical investigation of this misrepresentation of women in contemporary society. Using imagery from ...

In Motion: EYE FULL by John Zissovici

In the In-Between -

From the first moment, the city that slides into view is a fragmented world of image assemblies that bears little resemblance to Google’s familiar simulations of moving along the street. At best we accept it as a provisional place of images, flat or curved, which seem to have acquired gravitational force that alternatively attract, or repel us. The whole city mimics our current state of distracted attention where we are surrounded and tempted by images on...

In Dialogue with Lucas Blalock

In the In-Between -

Lucas Blalock’s current studio is located in a spacious former warehouse building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Neatly organized, Blalock’s space appeared cozy and light-filled, with prints of his new work pinned to the walls, a plastic table in the center, Deardorff 4x5 view camera, stack of older prints laying on another table, a big old printer, computer, and lots of books. I stumbled on a few small metal wheels on the floor, and realized later I was looking at...

Flying Lands by Lionel Bayol-Themines

In the In-Between -

For many years, photography has been seen as a representation of the natural world. Today, information captured by a camera can be changed by playing with the information given to the algorithm in Photoshop. Beginning with a standard digital image, I select several portions of the image as layers, and alter them using various Photoshop 3-D tools. The individual selections of clouds, rocks, trees and et cetera become new images, which are then re-integrated into the original. This method of creating a picture within a picture is my way of questioning the nature of...
