Print Sale Focus – ‘Rene’ with Helen Breznik

Share

We are sure we have reached many of you with details of our brand spanking new Online Gallery and Print Sales Website, if not, then you really need to take a look here and see it for yourself. The site has been optimised for both mobile, tablet and desktop computers. 

Today, we’re going to focus on one specific image from our collections and this is by Multi Award Winning Mobile Photographer Helen Breznik. Breznik’s photography leans towards the melancholy—but in Breznik’s hands, this emotion could be defined as ‘sorrow with a purpose.’ She utilizes her sensitivity to conjure up a romantic beauty in her images: images which are self-portraits but have a universal appeal within.

Breznik has always felt comfortable in front of the camera. When she is modeling for her portraits, she does so with music playing, garbed in fabulous vintage clothes. At their best, these sessions transport her to another world, one where her alter-egos can fully emerge. The characters are varied: a Queen will emerge, serene, royal, strong but with vulnerability. Or a figure drawn from the Pre-Raphaelites period, containing tragedy mixed with great passion and beauty.

Although the outward changes seem dramatic, she actually strives to keep make-up to a minimum. Her most dramatic way to change appearance is by sculpting natural light. With care, she is able to create deep shadows, strong lines, vivid contrasts, all of which create natural depth and definition.

Breznik first took up photography 10 years ago after picking up a bunch of old Polaroid cameras. She loved working with Time Zero film, which gave her ample opportunity to manipulate the images. When she heard about new smartphone apps which simulated Polaroid photography, she felt compelled to try them out. From 2010, Breznik began using the iPhone exclusively and her dedication to the boundless possibilities of mobile photography was settled.

Having used a variety of different tools over the course of her photographic career, Breznik concludes, “In the end it doesn’t matter what you shoot with…it’s the final image that matters.”

The photograph that we are focusing on today that we are offering for sale in our online gallery is entitled ‘Rene‘. We offer this image in three sizes, 16″ x 24″, 12″ x 18″ and 8″ x 12″. The prices range from US$140 to $282. These will all be printed on Fine Art Giclee on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag. This paper is one of our most popular papers amongst artists, illustrators & photographers alike. The paper gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so we recommend extra care when handling. Photorag is suitable for mounting but its cotton texture means edges can fray if not carefully handled.

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Christine Mignon from Vienna, Austria

Share

Today, we are publishing our nineteenth visual interview, this time with Christine Mignon from Vienna, Austria. Mignon absorbs not just the streets but humans in nature too, alchemizing them into mesmerising and intricately constructed mobile images. As a photographer she nudges mobile photography to its limits, as an artist she is uncannily commanding.

Mignon’s images lie within the genres of street and landscape and nature and within each it is the human element that leads. I sense it and also having met her in London, I feel intuitively that’s what she seeks. Many of her street scenes are romanticised, and that’s no bad thing. Streets are hard and hardness is often seen on the faces captured in street photography but not so much with Mignon’s work. There’s a sense of the hard grind of street life but there’s also a focus on the good things that happen on the streets, of joy and happiness. Deep down, we all seek to romanticise the past, the future and the present, why not? Mignon, senses and gifts us that, hitting us on a deeply personal level.

I am so excited about this new Interview section within TheAppWhisperer. A picture speaks a thousand words, so says the English language idiom and as this is a website by and for visual artists, we felt this section was long overdue. We asked a series of mobile photographers and artists ten questions, in text format and we asked them to respond in their very best way, visually and in their own style of photography/art, the results are unique and incredibly exciting.

To read our previously published interviews, with Deborah McMillion, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago, Christine Sobczak, Liliana Schwitter, Armineh Hovanesian, Lorenka Campos, Donna Donato, Eliza Badoiu, Juta Jazz, Susan Rennie, Kate Zari Roberts, Lynette Sheppard, Debara Splendorio, Irene Oleksiuk, Davide Capponi, Vanessa Vox, Amanda Parker and Clint Cline please go here.

Visualising Mobile Photography and Art Interview with Clint Cline from the USA

Share

Today, we are publishing our eighteenth visual interview, this time with Clint Cline from the USA. Cline employs a technique within his painting that embodies religion, storytelling and abstract art. His paintings are powerful, mysterious amalgams of landscapes and unique craggy forms that elicit abstract shapes, symmetrically balancing powerful colour tones. Viewed in epic proportions, Cline’s work evokes an awesome grandness of nature. The imagery employed has the simplicity of a Shaker chair but the discipline, calmness and originality that radiates from his paintings, makes for the envy of many an artist.

I am so excited about this new Interview section within TheAppWhisperer. A picture speaks a thousand words, so says the English language idiom and as this is a website by and for visual artists, we felt this section was long overdue.

Today, we’re going to focus on one specific image from our collections and this is by mobile macro photographer Jill Lian. It was taken this year and is entitled ‘In the Garden’ – incidentally, one request we make to mobile photographers wishing to have their collection featured on our new website, is that the work is new and previously unseen, as is the case with this one of course. This photograph is a close up of a pink flower and it is beautiful. Lian is an Award Winning Mobile Macro Photographer based in New York, United States. It is clear that Lian is interested in both art and science, as her macro images project the perfect combination of these interests. Her images are aesthetically pleasing whilst unmistakably scientifically captivating. Her work brings light to a whole new world that is so often overlooked, she is fascinated with this micro world full of colours, textures and relief. Not only does Lian find good subjects to photograph, she composes the images so undeniably well that the viewer is eternally gripped.

ThePrintSpace will print this photograph on Fine Art Giclee on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper and ship this to wherever you would like it. We have three sizes available, 18″x24″, 12″x16″ and 9″x12″ and the prices run from $111.36 up to $195.95.  One new thing we have introduced to our TheAppWhspererPrintSales website is the availability to view prices in various currencies, the default is £ sterling but just switch that out to whatever suits you best. We know that the majority of our readership is in the US, so just switch it over to US $’s when viewing (switch is at the top of the page).
