Through A Screen

Something about Matt Tischler's Untitled Screen Series feels like summer...
Rich, saturated colors and anonymous faces intrigue the eye while the screen between us and them makes the viewer feel blocked from truly connecting to the other person beyond the grid. Tischler states, "subjects and figures are therefore broken apart and reconstructed in such a way that they are both integrated into their environment and isolated within it."

those are wonderful! i love how you cannot see their faces. its mysterious and yet calm like a children's story! i love them!

AlicePleasance said...

Wonderful, they look like memories lost in time, when faces start fading away...

Parapluie said...

Wonderful!

Kim said...

These are beautiful and awesome. The last one gives me a bit of a creepy vibe, the as a whole they are very sweet!

Gabbi said...

I think its the bright colors almost amplified after the rainstorm

Louie in Wonderland said...

Sincerely Louie, Ciao!

oooh, I like these. I definitely see what you mean about them feeling like summer, that's the feeling I got too. Something about summer has me wanting to take pictures of bits of people: legs, hands, shoulders, elbows, feet.

I love how the colors just jump out because we are not able to focus on the details, like faces, flowers, etc. It really adds an impressionist feel to it. They're perfect!

Damsels said...

love how the blur is there .and we cant see it but our eyes naturally make out the shapes and images.
its great ... and it makes the color stand out more i feel

Sam said...

Lovely colours! They are a little bit spooky though - they worry me a little. But that's a good thing with art!

These are very interesting and lovely photographs. I'm afraid I'm hopeless when it comes to photography. :(

The colours are really beautiful and I love the mystery of the void that is between the viewer and the person from the screen shot.

Eyeliah SS said...

kind of creepy, but cool.

celi.a said...

I think it's interesting that the screen takes away all of the facial features - you've got a colorful and blank canvas at the same time.

Have you seen the photos at http://jordanferney.blogspot.com/2009/07/brazil-pics-part-3-of-3.html? That's just the link to her latest post, but she does gorgeous photography, and the first photo for today reminded me of your feature.

For a second I thought I needed to get glasses STAT.

SOMETHING PICASSO said...

These are awesome....

LML said...

so neat!!! this inspires me to experiment with filters!

these look like album covers too!

Amelia said...

I love the texture of the screens, especially in the pictures where there seems to be water on top. The colors are brilliant!

jayne said...

in response to your comment on my blog, there is something very boring about Alexa Chung's hair, not just on the show, but all of the time. Definitely something I noticed whilst compiling photos of her for that post haha it never does anything and always looks limp

S.Elisabeth said...

These are pure genius. The cherry blossom picture is my favorite. How do you find such interesting photographers?!

Claradevi Handriatmadja said...

They looked like pixel-y photos, and at first I thought the three without wet-glasses effect are painted. I'm scared if I really love their colours - due to the fact that I can't make any photo like that...

Claradevi Handriatmadja said...

ah! by the way, there's a link to indonesian photographers that you might interested to see... i love his underwater artwork recently.

Cool! Where are you roadtripping to? I think roadtrips are my favorite mode of transportation. You miss so much when you fly. All the small neat places...

Oh! And I saw your photo on the front page of Chictopia! So cool.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

OH MY GOSH, I LOVE THIS.

Sher said...

Creative but I find not seeing the faces a tad too eerie....

The Six Six Sick Girls said...

These are very beautiful, it reminds me of a couple photos I took through my car window when it was raining.

nameotson said...

it looks good, I like your photography :)))

Nadine said...

Weird but really really cool!

Saorise said...

Those are beautiful!

Danielle de la Mont said...

I don't think anyone but a person of the 21st century could have produced these. It sort of illustrates the modern gaze: Is this not how we perceive the world? Through screens, more connected than ever, and yet always seperated.

Another Fashion Blogger said...

Really nice pictures!

Alya said...

It has an anonymous feel to it, especially since you cant see the faces at all.

Lucy in the Sky said...

lovely, I was actually surprised to find his art on your site. :)

I own one of his prints (sold on 20x200.com, everyone!) and the colors are much much much more saturated than it appears here. I think his 'screen' project is absolutely genius.

LOVEly blog, by the way! Seriously, I don't like reading other people's blogs much but I actually like yours. :)

Becca Jane said...

These are very cool

Rebecca said...

These are beautiful! I especially love the third one. Photographs taken with any sort of textured filter in front of the lens are so neat.
