In Conversation: Jon Setter and Chris Shepherd

In Conversation: Jon Setter and Chris Shepherd

Chris Shepherd and Jon Setter practice photography in opposite corners of the world and, until recently, have never met. The two photographers demonstrate an artistic kinship in their work; while the sources of inspiration for Chris and Jon’s work are similar, the delivery of the content is unique to each artist's process.

FFOTO’s Craig D’Arville suggested to Chris and Jon that they talk to each other about their art practices -- for their own enjoyment and to give collectors a glimpse into their lives. What follows is an earnest and heartfelt email conversation between the two artists that discusses influences, techniques, ideologies, and more. Their correspondence has been edited for ease of reading.

In Conversation: Sabrina Ratté & Deanna Pizzitelli

In Conversation: Sabrina Ratté & Deanna Pizzitelli

We were lucky to be able to have a virtual sit-down with Deanna and Sabrina, to discuss what seem to be apparent overlapping themes and ideas in their work. We hoped to gain a sense of how each artist approaches their work and see to what extent process overlaps. The result was a fascinating conversation that touched on how to represent subjectivities, the use of manipulation of media as a technique to alter ‘reality,’ questions of memory and place, and more.

Artist Spotlight: Barbara Alper

A freelance photojournalist with a career spanning 40+ years, Barbara Alper's eye focuses on landmark moments of social change, as well as intimate observations of everyday life. Evident across Alper's body of work is her desire to show viewers scenes of solidarity -- both on a grand scale as well as face-to-face on the streets where we live. It is this humanistic sensibility that drew the attention of the New York Times, leading to Alper's longtime association with the USA's newspaper of record.

Fading Dreams: The Photography of William Eakin

Fading Dreams: The Photography of William Eakin

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future go the lyrics of a classic rock song, but it's also an apt phrase to keep in mind while considering the work of photographer William Eakin. Time – historical time, as well as geological and ideological time – weighs heavily on his work. Looking at his deceptively simple depictions of mid-century watch faces, bottle caps and re-photographed Polaroids, we are reminded of time's passage, how it not only imprints itself on objects we've produced and discarded, but how its passing also affects us emotionally and physically.
