For photographer Daniel Müller, mnemonic frailty was not the sole impetus for picking up a camera. His first dabblings with the medium were born out of a natural affinity for meeting people and delving into foreign cultures. “My memory often fails me and photography helped me solve this problem,” he explains. “But aside from that, it allows me to engage with people in a very singular way that can’t be compared to anything else.”
Nathan Sawaya has teamed up with award-winning Aussie photographer Dean West. The project is a series of tableau compositions based on ideas about nature, culture, society and more specifically, identity. Identity as a cultural creation has been heavily commercialized and manipulated, and we prominently portray this through a highly stylized representation of contemporary life. The integration of Sawaya’s unique sculpture is key to the series’ narrative and aesthetic.
