    Bleeding Edge Large Format

    Last week I attended MOMA's annual New Photography show, which this year features the work of six young U.S.-based photographers. Only one of them (Daniel Gordon) appears to have a web site, but one can see some of their work on the MOMA site (www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/891) and elsewhere on the web. The New Yorker published a brief description here:http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critic...otebook_aletti

    I'm interested in seeing more work that might be considered bleeding edge, whether by new or established photographers, for the selfish reason that I'm thinking through where to go with my own photography and some of what I saw at MOMA was helpful. Suggestions? Out of deference, I used the phrase large format in the thread title, but for the purpose of my question I don't really care what the format is. To anticipate, I'm not really looking for names like Jeff Wall, Gregory Crewdson, etc., who are at this point pretty mainstream.

    Thanks.

    Wow, I would not have known that was photography if not for Ms. Eva Respini introducing as such in her opening sentence.


    Real photographs are born wet !

    Hi Bosaiya,

    This appears to be a site that you own. When I click on the image, I wind up, via a choice of using a web-based e-mail account, at a Russian domain that appears (cyrillic not being one of my strong suits) to want a username and password. I know your work, so I'm curious. What's this about, or is it a product of your sense of humour?
    Cheers!

    If that is "new photography" then call me old school.

    Jerold,

    I asked a question, and I am hoping that I'll get some answers instead of standing by while this degenerates into a psychotherapy session for people who want to bash work that they don't like.
    Cheers!

    Hmm, not sure about the Russian. The image/link (which is the current extent of the site) should just open up an email message in your default program.

    Re: Bleeding Edge Large Format

    I'm not used to being asked, when I click on a home page image, whether I'm prepared to open Outlook. So I moved to Opera, which gave me the choice of opening Outlook, my Opera e-mail client or a web-based e-mail client. I choose the latter, which led me to a page in Cyrillic that appears to want a username and password.

    Anyway, if the image is the only thing on the page, I guess it's a little joke - or does one get an actual e-mail message if one goes along? If so, interesting, but you're assuming a pretty laid back view on computer security.
    Cheers!

    I'm planning on getting around to adding to it maybe sometime in the future, it's just a placeholder for now. I have no experience with Opera so I can't say, but it seems to work okay (in that it sends an email) in IE and FireFox. I wouldn't have posted it at all if the original message weren't just screaming for it.

    So in this context it's a joke, maybe even a satirical shot, in any event cool.
    Cheers!
