Tabitha Soren: Under Your Skin (7 photos) AUG 05, 2010 01:00A.M.

© Tabitha Soren Tabitha Soren’s work is featured in this month’s issue of Fraction Magazine. Soren says, “My work is about decay and the struggle against it. Each of my projects has to do, in one way or another, with the toll time can take on the home, the body, and the heart. I am interested in how human beings manage to find meaning in their lives despite this. Under Your Skin is an antidote to the frantic mental states women can experience when it comes to their appearances, especially as they age. The amazing functions of the human body – moving, holding, giving birth – are eclipsed in contemporary life by how it looks.” To see more of Tabitha Soren’s work click here.

© David Leventi. Romanian Athenaeum, Bucharest, Romania, 2007 An exhibition of David Leventi’s photographs, Opera Houses, is opening at the Arthur Roger Gallery on August 7th and will run through September 11th, 2010.

PDN PHOTO OF THE DAY

“The project, Bjoerling’s Larynx: World Famous Opera Houses, is titled after Jussi Björling, a Swedish operatic tenor and arguably the best singer of the century – known for his technique, feeling and the range of his voice. Bjoerling debuted at the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm and eventually became a principal at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. These two spaces – and the others that I have photographed thus far – are the spaces in which my grandfather, Anton Gutman, never got the chance to perform. Gutman was a cantor trained right after World War II by Helge Rosvaenge, a famous Danish operatic tenor who sang regularly with the State Operas in Berlin and Vienna. While Gutman was interned in a prisoner-of-war camp in the Soviet Union, he performed for prisoners and officers. Nearly a half-century later, I grew up listening to him sing while he walked around our living room. As the son of two architects, I experience an almost religious feeling walking into a grand space such as an opera house.” – David Leventi

Did you know that history’s first photographic images were made without a camera? It’s true! Way back in the 1830s, William Fox Talbot discovered he could place objects on photo-sensitive paper to make images called “photograms.” We’re going to show you how to make them with instant film, so we call ‘em “instagrams!” (We also call them “awesome!”)
