ART GoSee loves … INSEX – the first monograph by American photographer Alex Stoddard, appearing at Kerber Publishing and as an exhibition at Fahey/Klein in LA

03.08.2022 • INSEX is the debut monograph by American photographer Alex Stoddard (*1993), in which he explores the parallels between metamorphosis in the natural world and human coming-of-age processes.

“Through staged, highly stylized images, Stoddard invites viewers into a colorfully dark world of budding sexuality and crawling insects. The previously unreleased series of seventy images paints a surreal picture of adolescence in a glorious frenzy of buzzing hormones and sprouting wings. Each scene features a youthful subject – often Stoddard himself – in a state of change or paired with a many-legged counterpart. INSEX marks the artist’s first cohesive collection of work.”

Through the beginning of August, the series is still on display as an exhibition in the renowned Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles.

Alex Stoddard was raised in rural Georgia. Inspired by his surroundings and rural isolation, he began taking self-portraits as a teenager. Photography became a means of escape, allowing him to construct elaborate scenes and step into the role of different characters through costumes and posing....

20.07.2022 • Anke LUCKMANN deals, in addition to her commercial photography, with trees time and again. Which is why hardly a production passes where Anke doesn’t take a look at the landscapes and forests around her. She presents us her new series ‘AR’ here on GoSee.

“AR means scar in Danish. This series of tree trunks was taken in Denmark and in the Sequoia National Park in California before the big fire came. Showing the ‘skin’ of the trees – with messages and drawings of human beings … mostly hearts and initials … but we need to keep in mind that we can hurt the tree if we carve to deep into the bark,” Anke tells GoSee.
