artwork by loretta lux

time magazine's recent issue has an interesting write-up on some pretty amazing photographers currently rocking the art world. i couldn't help but poke around the internet in search of more info and imagery on these artists, as i was completely captivated by the few pictures i saw in the article.

so, for those of you who don't subscribe, i thought i'd share the links i found. along the way, i also stumbled across tim connor's photography blog-which is a pretty great read, if you're so inclined.

artwork by ryan mcginley

loretta lux takes portraits of children and graphically manipulates them, creating a mysteriously haunting effect. barbara probst takes the idea of capturing a moment in time one step further, by snapping multiple views of the same moment. ryan mcginley paints a picture of the quintessential youth culture, while taryn simon reveals hidden, and often sombre aspects of american society, as seen in the cryogenic lab photo below.

Ryan McGinley.....mmmmm....not so much. I just recently became familiar with barbara probst, so I'm still deciding about her....

in a way, i feel like i've seen mcginley's stuff before, like it's not quite as singular as the others. but, i still feel as though each has a specific stamp on their craft....i would love to see an exhibition of any of these artists!
