healing oil – chloe dewe mathews

24 Oct

deep in the background of the viscous history of our black gold, on the agricultural planes of azerbaijan, nests naftalan: a village where oil is extricated from its tangled web of money and power, and refined and celebrated as a therapeutic cure for the body in an oxymoronic reversal.

commonly blamed for toxic emissions, rising cancer rates and countless wars, the azerbaijani crude’s tale of healing seems like either the product of a febrile PR mind or one of those extraordinarily improbable tales native to the former soviet union.

chloe dewe mathews‘ photograhic essay on this community’s relationship with oil – from natural remedy to newfound oligarchy money – has been awarded this year’s british journal of photography prize, and will be on show on london’s host gallery from november 22.

doppelganger- cornelia hediger

22 Jul

loving these psychologically intense doppelganger portraits by swiss-born photographer cornelia hediger.

the fragmented nature of the pictures hints at splintered identities, while the distorted sense of perspective, the blown-out, oversized limbs; and the triangular, incomplete structure of the gazing introduce a sense of menacing yet playful suspense.
