In Street Scene Horvath and Gindlesberger reconstruct iconic places using digital technology and mass imagery as their medium. Continuing the tradition of re-photograpic projects, the artists use Internet sites such as Google Street View to revisit iconic sites of photography and cinema.

To further the dialogue between a physical landscape and virtual environment, the artists add texts from stories and data collected from on-line sources. Street Scene asks questions about “our experience or non-experience of places through the proxy of the electronic image.”

Dan Lobdell, Pittsburgh, PA (PITT02) (2013), archival pigment print, 22 x 33 inches.

The series City Landscapes and Typologies by Dan Lobdell features photographs of 19th and 20th century building facades in Rust Belt cities such as Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Detroit, and Cleveland.

Dan Lobdell, Rochester, NY (ROC06) (2013), archival pigment print, 22 x 33 inches.

His use of perspective captures dramatic skies and the surrounding setting, while the use of black and white photography emphasizes each building’s architectural form and features. For Lobdell, City Landscapes and Typologies is an “investigation into how the buildings, in their stateliness and various degrees of disrepair, engage with their environment and the new urban reality.”

David Pace, Untitled (Sur La Route 9486) (2013), archival pigment print, 14 x 20 inches.

The photographs in the series Sur La Route (“on the road”) by David Pace were taken in the rural village of Bereba in the West African country of Burkina Faso, and are elegant portraits of Pace’s neighbors as they return home on an earthen path at the day’s end.

Sur La Route 0787 (2011)

David Pace, Untitled (Sur La Route 8334) (2013), archival pigment print, 20 x 14 inches.

He uses a fill-flash to illuminate his subjects and to “take advantage of beautiful skies that appear for just a few moments before nightfall.” As a counter to media portrayals of Africa as either devastated or exotic, Pace emphasizes both the beauty of the landscape and the “simply beauty of everyday life” in Bereba.

Leslie Hall Brown, Cirque du Psyche (2014), digital pigment, 12 x 12 inches.

In her series Cirque du Psyche, Leslie Hall Brown constructs and photographs fantastical ‘circus acts’ that recall traveling circuses, carnivals, and freak-shows of days past. The photographs in this series highlight the combination of humor and horror that has been successfully used to entertain the public for centuries.

Leslie Hall Brown, Beats Palmistry (2014), digital pigment, 16 x 16 inches.

Brown effectively associates the series’ circus acts with the dream-like (and even nightmarish) through the use of black and white photography and vignetting techniques. She suggests the photographs in Cirque du Psyche are metaphors for “psychic struggle” as the “images are as marred as our psyches, showing the signs of history and aging.”
