Murat Germen is a professor of art, photography, and new media at Sabanci University in Instanbul, Turkey. His work focuses on finding things people ignore and presenting them in an interesting light. Germen claims "It is easy to take ordinary photos of extraordinary things but more challenging to take extraordinary photos of ordinary things." Judging by his photos, I tend to agree. He distorts ordinary shots of cities and creates images that are completely unqiue yet familiar.
Awesome double exposure series by Lisa Bamford. Her use of double exposure makes recognizable buildings and monuments much more interesting. The best part is, the shots are all done in camera.
"I enjoy taking photographs because of the enormous creative scope it provides. I am generally attracted to simplicity in either subject or composition, which is down to my background and job as a graphic designer. I see the structure of photographs in the same way as I do a layout, and I like them to be easy to read. I'm also a bit of a magpie and so take inspiration from all sorts of styles of photography, and so will shoot different subjects in different ways. I'd get bored to tears if I had to design the same thing everyday and that translates to what I point my camera at.
I generally choose my travel destinations based on places I think will be photogenic as that's what I enjoy doing most while I'm away. I find making double exposures an effective way of producing interesting images of buildings or monuments that have been endlessly photographed. It also appeals to me as the images often look quite graphic and hopefully not like the usual tourist snap."
