Desktography has been running for its third year already and it is an exhibition to showcase nature themed desktop wallpapers created by designers worldwide.
Designers spend 90% of their waking life in front of a computer so the most appealing genre for a wallpaper would be one that has beautiful design mixed with all important aspect of being outdoors.
Kim Kirkpatrick has lived in the Washington D.C. area since 1959. His photography is of a personal landscape, an exploration of the D.C.-Baltimore area.
Kim doe landscape photography and known for his creative use of bokeh.
Bokeh (from the Japanese boke ぼけ, “blur”) is a photographic term referring to the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens. Different lens bokeh produces different aesthetic qualities in out-of-focus backgrounds, which are often used to reduce distractions and emphasize the primary subject. The effect itself is the circle of confusion, an image of the aperture convolved by the image itself.
Chaos… is what you perceive, silent and creeping, in Luisa Raffaelli’s hypertrophic atmospheres. Perhaps millenaristic, apocalyptic, definitive… or perhaps the usual delirium which we no longer notice unless with new visual perceptions.. in any event a chaos that insinuates itself beneath mimetic masks, enveloping daily life, bodies, ways of dressing, interior design, streets… A vital chaos, whichever way you look at it. Which has nothing to do with another chaos, that of an idea of bulimia (the current portrayal) where the unresolved approaches confuse the view of the weak spectator. A chaos from which fewer and fewer artists manage to escape from.
Kim Joon was originally a painter interested in exploring the dynamics and tensions that exist between the mental and physical realms. Mr. Kim first became interested in the process of tattooing in college and while serving a three year military term in Seoul, Korea. During his time in school and the military, he began to give home made tattoos to his friends. When Mr. Kim gave these home made tattoos he used needle, thread, and Chinese ink. He would dip the thread into the Chinese ink and let it drip down the needle into the skin.
Terry Richardson’s book Rio, Cidade Maravilhosa, a collection of photographs shot in the city back in April.
I just like how raw it is and the fact he is merely using a Yashica T4 point and shoot film camera.

After getting aware of the viewpoint of an “empty self,” I started in 1999 a series of works using paper, titled “Linear-Actions Projects by Drawing and Cutting.” It looks like annual rings of a tree or topographical map or waive, but it isn’t. It is absolutely the traces of actions of a person, which is me.
So to speak, I have been mapping the mysterious land between physical and emotional geography. I want to attain something sublime. The entrance of the way is detail. The detail is the key point of nature, and we are part of nature. Even though the actions are simple, I do not try to draw / cut mechanical or perfect lines in my work, for subtle natural distortions convey the nuances of human emotions, habits, or biorhythm. For this reason, I take care to make all works by hand.
When I am drawing or cutting lines, I am interested in observing the power of the changing growing shape. This dynamic shape becomes an entity in itself, “Another geography.” In a sense, the empty space is myself, and the materials represent the present world. Cutting book work is like collaboration for me. And it is important to choose the materials carefully because printed matter conveys a message automatically. The relationship between the linear actions and the materials is like the relationship between human beings and their restricted environment, a connection that is interested in me, too.
