Le Chat Noir, Paris, or “The Studio Cat”, André Kertész via poboh
André Kertész (2 July 1894 – 28 September 1985), born Kertész Andor, was a Hungarian-born photographer known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and the photo essay. In the early years of his career, his then-unorthodox camera angles and style prevented his work from gaining wider recognition. Kertész never felt that he had gained the worldwide recognition he deserved. Today he is considered one of the seminal figures of photojournalism.
Another large scale pagan-y sculpture for the season. Italian street artist Never2501 made this giant reclined figure out of all natural materials, with no tools or nails, etc. It’s awesome. Even if he won’t get up. Via archiemcphee:
This enormous supine beast is a wonderful sculpture created by Italian street artist Never2501. The massive, autumnal piece was constructed using dead trees and roots collected in the forest. No tools or nails were used in the creature’s assembly, all of the components were fit together organically.
Entitled In Cammino Per Trasformarsi Nell’istante Presente (“Moving to transform into the present”), this awesome sculpture can be found in the garden of the Museo Archeologico “Paolo Giovio” in Como, Italy.
A figure in chain by Korean sculptor Yeong-Deok Seo via fer1972. More from Colossal:
Korean artist Yeong-Deok Seo creates imposing figurative sculptures using tightly knit configurations of welded bicycle chains and industrial steel chains. While impressive in their intricacy and the apparent skill required to create them, the artwork’s titles such as Infection – Anguish, Infection – Ego, and Addict, suggest the rippled surface created by the materials is not an arbitrary decision.
