Todd Walker Day

Chromaesthetics-26B, 2013 by Douglas D. Prince

In celebration of the 96th anniversary of Todd Walker’s birth, the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona declares Wednesday, September 25,Todd Walker Day!  Melanie Walker will be giving a talk at the CCP gallery.

Todd's creative spirit and passionate pursuit of the process have been an inspiration for me, as a photographer and teacher, since we worked together at the University of Florida in the 1970's.  In that same spirit, I'm posting a downloadable original digital image from my newest body of work, Chromaesthetics.  I'd like to think that Todd would appreciate this gift to the imaging community.

Jean-François Rauzier

Jean-François Rauzier
Jean-François Rauzier was immediately captivated by numerical photography when it penetrated the professional market 15 years ago. He has been exploring the multiple opportunities offered by computer’s retouching since then, turning himself into a “virtual” painter.
In 2002, he created the “Hyperphoto”, a concept which enables him to deal with the impossible: to combine both infinitely big and infinitely small things in one same image, out of time.
To simulate the illusion of reality, Jean-François Rauzier first had to cope with all the inherent limits inherent of the photographic and technological equipment.
He found his way by juxtaposing, duplicating, twisting images with Photoshop, making it possible for him to reproduce human vision more accurately. This way, he generated a genuine numerical puzzle, in which the pieces, cut out, “drawn again”, come up along on top of the imagination of the artist.
From this technique is issued numerous fascinating and unusual details on which the spectator can dwell on.
The multitude of images invite the spectators to an inside journey, in dream-like, fantastic and timeless worlds. These worlds are filled with icons and references born of the artist’s cultural hall of fame.
