Kyle Jeffers (b. 1998) is based in Hamilton, Canada, where he is currently studying for a BA in photography. Though only at the start of his career, Jeffers is already producing a multitude of elegant compositions in which the body is wrapped around industrial structures, draped over crates or gripping to ladders. Picking up on small strips of oranges, greens, blues and purples within manufactured locations, Jeffers builds up textures through costume, props and layouts. In doing so, he elevates scenes with alarm-like vibrancy. The images draw the eye in the same way that a road sign might glare from a motorway, or traffic lights might pull attention from concrete jungles. He notes: “Colour and shape come together contentedly within otherwise mucky or muted landscapes.” The result is a selection of sculptural images that dance around speed cones, cranes, bunkers and warehouses. @kylejeffers_ | www.kyle-jeffers.com.
Pockets of Colour
The primary coloured houses of the Northern Hemisphere stand out against washed-out streets, and even the most mundane objects become almost mystical half-disguised in the frosty weather.
Influenced by how nature is presented in media, Thomas Wrede’s Real Landscapes reproduces topographies, spanning simulation and reality.
