“Attic Bedroom, Delhi, NY.” © Trevor Tondro.
The farmhouse, an icon of the leafy, winding roads and staggering farm lands of rural New England, is more than just an emblem of the American homestead. Many of these dwellings stand as relics of the Dutch, English, French and Scotch settlers who built these simple structures as early as the seventeenth century. This series of photographs, by Brooklyn, New York-based architectural photographer Trevor Tondro, were made for his forthcoming book, A Simpler Way of Life: Old Farmhouses of New York & New England, to be released by Norfleet Press in Fall 2013. His images are a chronicle of the cozy, rustic interiors and painterly exteriors of these modest structures, made by carpenters and farmers in the New York and New England countryside.

Many of Munich’s subway stations have distinctive architectural personalities, and local photographer Nick Frank brings some out in his striking series called Subway. Shooting the empty stations during off-peak hours, he trains his camera on vanishing points, and accentuates the bold colors, lines, graphics, and architectural details. The result is a collection of dramatic, futuristic spaces that most of us Munich subway riders don’t see–at least not quite like this–but will certainly recognize. Frank hopes to take the project beyond Munich, photographing subway stations all over the world that make the most compelling visual backdrops to the everyday drama that occurs at much busier times of day. More of Frank’s subway images are at http://www.indiegogo.com/subways/. (more…)

Karolina Karlic is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist. Her work is tied to the idea of the West: road trips, car culture, industry, economic ups and downs, and the experience of the migrant. Her series “Elementarz” (Polish for “Primer”) shuttles between the familiar American photographic road trip and her reexamination of parts of Poland where her family comes from and to which her father, after years working as an emigre engineer in the Detroit auto industry, was dispatched to investigate new sites for the next generation car plants. The work weaves together family, surrogate relatives, religion, nostalgia, Motown music, manufactured ideologies and other themes.
Karlic is a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship. She continues to explore representations of American culture, industry, labor, and the immigrant experience in a current work-in-progress that focuses on an American oil boom town. – Artist statement courtesy of Karolina Karlic
Alka Theater II, Jaipur, India 2010
In the Spring of 2010 and 2011, photographer Katherine Newbegin traveled alone to India where she began a series on cinemas. Most were still currently in use at the time Newbegin photographed them. But in the larger, more developed cities, she says these aging cinemas were harder to find because they are disappearing rapidly in favor of the new mega-plexes, which do not have to pay taxes for 3 years.
