Digital Macro

Photographer Rishad Mistri invites the Two Minute Review to take a look at the unique capabilities of the digital macro on a simple Canon PowerShot digital camera.  Because of the size of the lens and the way that it compresses space, small objects take on a strange perspective different than what you would get with a traditional macro lens.  Watch the video to see more!

Self Portraiture

Photographer Monica Felix on the art and craft of self-portraiture.

After graduating from the University of Puerto Rico, Rìo Piedras Campus with a B.A. in Communications in 2006, Monica became formally employed in the world of advertising at Arco.  Parallel to her work as an account executive she developed her personal projects, like photography, art videos, theater and photomontages. In 2007, she moved to New York City to study photography at Pratt Institute. The experience opened up the search process of the main themes that Félix explores in her conceptual work. Artists like Annie Leibowitz, Cindy Sherman, Andres Serrano, Gregory Crewdson, David LaChapelle and Fabian Vergara are key references in Félix’s images, who has looked to establish dialogues with their works, as well as stepping back to develop her own commentary from her life experiences. Currently, she works as an independent photographer in New York City and Puerto Rico.
