    In this edited excerpt, Alex Webb discusses The Suffering of Light, the first comprehensive monograph charting the career of the acclaimed American photographer. Recognized as a pioneer of American color photography, since the 1970s, Webb has consistently created photographs characterized by intense color and light. His work, with its richly layered and complex composition, touches on multiple genres, including street photography, photojournalism, and fine art, but as Webb claims, “to me it all is photography. You have to go out and explore the world with a camera.” You can find The Suffering of Light here: aperture.org/​suffering.html

      At the first AFA ArtTalk of the 2010/11 season (September 21, 2010), artist Will Cotton gave an insightful and engaging talk about his sugary landscapes, illustrating his elaborate and unusual studio practices and use of pop cultural references such as the board game Candyland with photos and colorful anecdotes. He also talked about his limited palette—he confines himself to five colors—and the influence of such classical works as Alexandre Cabanel’s "The Birth of Venus." Cotton’s work has been shown in group exhibitions around the world. Other projects have included a pop-up French bakery at Partners & Spade, New York, a set of limited-edition pajamas for Creative Time, and art direction for the "California Gurls" music video for pop singer Katy Perry. Bakery at Partners and Spade, 32:10 Candy painting (first), 5:54 Drawing, 11:11 Figure drawing, 17:45 Formative experiences, 43:30 Influences, 47:30 Maquette (first), 7:00 Palette, 42:25 Perry, Katy, 37:47 Photos (use of), 16:49 Pin-up painting, 15:36 Portraiture, 28:14 Printmaking, 36:32 Props, 20:00 Scent, 45:26 Sculpture, 31:17 Set design, 20:00

        There they are, completely naked, right in the middle of the historical rooms, shocking the visitors. She, in strong pink, in the men's smoking room. He, shining in blue, in the women's library. Yes, the funnel is exactly stuck where one would not want to see it. Richard Jacksons Upside Down Man and Upside Down Woman do not only stand on their heads themelvesm they reverse any convention there is on the representation of the human body. Dennis Szakacs, curator of the Exhibit and Director des Orange County Museum of Art, tells us more abotut this provocative artwork. This podcast was originally published on Museum Villa Stuck' s blog www.villastuck-blog.de Interview, Pictures & Video: Viviana D'Angelo Project management: Textbau.com Da stehen sie, splitternackt, mitten in den Historischen Räumen, und schockieren die Besucher. Sie, in sattem Pink, im Raucherzimmer der Männer. Er, strahlend in Blau, in der Frauenbibliothek. Kopfüber. Und ja, der Trichter steckt genau dort, wo man ihn nicht sehen möchte. Richard Jacksons Upside Down Man und Upside Down Woman stehen nicht nur selbst auf dem Kopf, sie stürzen, ähnlich wie es die Wall Paintings mit der Malerei tun, jegliche Konvention der Körperdarstellung um. Dennis Szakacs, Kurator der Ausstellung und Direktor des Orange County Museum of Art, erklärt uns im Podcast, was es mit den beiden provokanten Werken auf sich hat.

                On Tuesday, February 4, 2014, Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the Department of Photography at Parsons the New School for Design, presented a talk with artist Sandy Kim. A self-identified “spark plug,” Kim authors images as provocative as they are insightful. Her subjects are her friends, and they revel in the casual pleasures of youthful antagonism. One image, in which two dirt-covered twenty-somethings smoke cigarettes, portrays outright youthful cynicism, in which health and hygiene are cast aside. Another image, in which a blue beam of light erupts from a woman’s head, playfully affects a sense of magical realism. For all the impatience and abuses depicted in Kim’s photographs, the radiant glow of humor, creativity, and possibility shines through.
