Sponsored by Depositphotos: Famous Images Recreated in Joakim Cortis & Adrian Sonderegger’s Project

Our friends and sponsors Depositphotos launched a brand new blog "Bird" dedicated to the world of Photography. They asked us to come across their latest content presented both on Russian and English and select the interesting portfolio for our readers. Welcome Joakim Cortis & Adrian Sonderegger. Joakim was born in Aachen, Germany, Adrian is from Bülach, Switzerland. Both graduated from Zurich University of the Arts.

We both make our living through photography; we do commission works, but two years ago we decided to do something for our own pleasure. The “Icons” project started with Andreas Gursky’s photograph “Rhein II” that was at that moment the most expensive photograph in the world. Initially, we had an idea to recreate only the most expensive photographs. Then we realized that it is too difficult – it is too much hard work trying to recreate a human from a picture by Cindy Sherman or Jeff Wall, for example. Besides, the choice of simpler images is not so big.

Conrad Jon Godly art

"When looking at Swiss painter Conrad Jon Godly’s mountainous paintings, it takes a moment to truly appreciate the incredible skill behind what seems to be such an effortless application of paint. Up close the landscapes appear to be a thick, almost random mix of blue, white and black, the result oils mixed with turpentine to create a thick impasto that Godly often leaves dripping from the canvas. Take a few steps back and miraculously you might as well be looking at a photograph of the Swiss Alps. It’s a visual trick that the artist has perfected in both small and large-scale paintings over the last few years." via Colossal

Cocoon

People say that a new era of virtual communications bred a new generation of people that may have all light forms of autism and can easily enjoy solitude. We can't agree or disagree but current trend of "co-working" definitely fits that statement. And giving people more intimate co-working spaces can solve many issues like guys from Zurich based Micasa Lab suggested with their new Personal Space Concept - Cocoon.http://cocoonlife.ch/
