Rosângela Rennó - Vulgo (Alias) (1998)
"These photographs originated from glass negatives in the Sao Paulo Penitentiary Archive, Brazil, which were identification photographs of prisoners, taken between 1920 and 1940.
Archives particularly interest Rennó because they are stored testimonies and traces of a past that is kept locked and forgotten most of the time, as are prisoners.
Rennó’s photographs are recovered fragments from a decaying prison archive which highlights the gaps in memory and the history of those prisoners.”
Polish collage artist - Franz Falckenhaus was born in 1975 in Bartoszyce, Poland and currently residing in Krakow, He studied and graduated with a degree in Information Technology and Computer related Studies. Although he never had any formal training in the arts, Franz always had an interest in photography, film, and collage.
His collage works are mainly digital and are always composed from selected vintage illustrations and images mixed with found paper materials. He skillfully combines self-made elements such as: backgrounds, shadows, and drawings with cleverly chosen photos to assemble them all together into art.
Franz’s style obviously shows recognition of his interest and passion with vintage aesthetics. His subject matter contains a sense of humor and a certain nostalgic feel as well. Being a self-taught collage artist, he sees things a little differently.
