Mitchell Funk
Urban Art Street Photography of Bus and Billboard Red Jacket Figure

2023

About the Item

A tourist bus adorned with punchy hi-key graphics passes in front of a soaring Times Square billboard of similar nature. Street Photographer Mithcell Funk captures the precise moment in an exquisitely nuanced way. The juxtaposition of both bus and billboard seems to be one. Only on close inspection does the viewer notice that they are separate elements. The composition is punctuated with a foreground figure cloaked in a hot red sweater related to the overall color scheme. Can a street photograph be a grab shot and precisely designed simultaneously? Mitchell Funk says yes. He brings finely honed photography skills such as composition, intense lighting, and design to found subject matter. The compositional precision normally found in studio photography is evident in his street photography. Unlike most street photographers, Funk is an abstractionist while being a documentarian.

    Located in Morongo Valley, CA
    Altstadt Rêveries #06, 2008 [From the series Goldenbogen & Zouzou] Digital color print based on original Polaroid on beautiful PHOTO RAG ULTRA SMOOTH 305gsm - 100% cotton by HAHNEMÜHLE, Hand signed & numbered by the artist, edition of 7 - nr 02 Unmounted. Carmen De Vos - Artist statement Flying Freelance Portrayer. Purveyor of Exquisite Photographic Peculiarities. Chroniqueur and Archiver. Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the late TicKL-Magazine. The Belgian artist Carmen De Vos is a slow photographer. She registers, portrays and thinks up odd stories. She shoots Polaroids to frame these mental escapades, they get so easily out of hand. She enormously longs for what she’s afraid to loose: real human contact, the slowness of being and creating, the tangibility of materials. Almost without exception she uses old Polaroid camera’s, long time expired film and self-made filters. Her tools and methods - such as film bleaching and deliberate film obstruction - are not precise and are not even geared towards a perfect representation. They often yield results - such as colorisation, deformation, unsharpness - which she could never have predicted on forehand with any certainty, because their flaws do not allow for calculation. She’s not in control. She fights the material. She plans, stages and directs but the decayed chemistry and off-focus lenses add their magic. All by themselves. Which merrily surprises her. Or ruins her image. This battle attracts her as much as it frustrates her. She loves to create within these limitations, to try to produce the best possible image within the narrow circumstances given. Luckily, she’s a sucker for imperfections. Once upon a time she found herself guilty of home-crafted mischiefs for TicKL, her English art porn Polaroid magazine. She never really got cured from naughtiness. She can’t help but traveling back to these blessed times of free-love photography...
