... Exposition Exhibition : « Blaschka » by Guido Mocafico Italian still life photographer Guido Mocafico’s fascination with Leopold and his son Rudolf Blaschka’s glass models of marine invertebrates and plants is revealed in his most recent series Blaschka. It has been Mocafico’s longstanding dream to photograph these masterpieces that took Leopold (1822-1895) and Rudolf (1857-1939) Blaschka a lifetime to create, and to pay homage to their unparalleled dedication to their craft with his photographs.
Originally from Bohemia, but based in Dresden, the Blaschkas were glassmakers working from the mid-1800s until the 1930s. The masterpieces, created over both their lifetimes, are handmade out of clear, coloured and painted glass and still exist in several museum collections, including Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts), the Corning Museum of Glass/Cor... Exposition Exposition : The Art of Arrangement We are pleased to announce a group exhibition dedicated to the genre of still-life in photography.
The term “still-life” originated in the 16th century in Netherlands and, by the 17th century, it had emerged as a distinct and specialised genre in Western painting. Many different types of still-life have developed since then, usually addressing the sensual perception of the viewer. Masters of still-life painting intended not only to create a hyper - realistic depiction of the world and to give a deceptively perfect illusion of reality, but to convey an often moral message through their use of certain symbols. For a vanitas theme, still-lifes often appear with aesthetically appealing luxury objects next to representations of mortality such as skulls, sand glasses, faded candles, withered flowers and broken g...

Beyond the usual process of colorizing black and white prints afterwards colour photography established itself from the 1930s onwards first within fashion and advertisement photography and quickly became an essential tool for the mass media and the entertainment industry. Colour used to pertain an adequate tool to describe the world how it could be in our imagination and wishes – colour outlines, accentu...

Exposition Guido Mocafico - Guns and Roses Guns and Roses, Guido Mocafico's second solo exhibition at Bernheimer Fine Art Photography, unites two bodies of work; Guns dating from 2006 - 2008 and Roses, 2009.

'I do not like violence but cannot deny that these machines are real and a part of life, they are symbolic - particularly during this ...

Exposition Guido Mocafico Nature Morte The Guido Mocafico: Nature Morte exhibition focuses on photographs inspired by the aesthetics of Old Masters.
Guido Mocafico concentrates in this exhibition primarily on three genres of still life: banquet, floral and vanitas still lifes, or as Mocafico calls his groups of works, natures mortes de table, bouquets and vanités. The bouquet and vanité works are new and are being shown to the public here for the first time. At first glance, the photographs seem hardly distinguishable from the compositions of the Old Masters that supplement the exhibition, because in his remarkable works, which are planned down to the last detail, Mocafico replicates typical still lifes of the 17th and 18th centuries.
The exhibition shows about 20 photographs in juxtaposition with Old Master paintings....
