Polish collage artist - Franz Falckenhaus was born in 1975 in Bartoszyce, Poland and currently residing in Krakow, He studied and graduated with a degree in Information Technology and Computer related Studies. Although he never had any formal training in the arts, Franz always had an interest in photography, film, and collage.

His collage works are mainly digital and are always composed from selected vintage illustrations and images mixed with found paper materials. He skillfully combines self-made elements such as: backgrounds, shadows, and drawings with cleverly chosen photos to assemble them all together into art.

Franz’s style obviously shows recognition of his interest and passion with vintage aesthetics. His subject matter contains a sense of humor and a certain nostalgic feel as well. Being a self-taught collage artist, he sees things a little differently.

Holger Lippmann - Perlin Scape 1 (2011)

"The Perlin Scape 1 series is based on a perlin noise algorithm, which generates color map dependent line by line sequences of either ellipses or rectangles on a 2 dimensional surface.

This software works with different keyboard input values to compose a rather painting-like image out of different color maps. These map arrays are called by random, noise and/or manual order.”

Ruined Polaroids - William Miller

I came across this project by veteran photographer and photojournalist William Miller. The story behind “Ruined Polaroids” is so unique – I immediately fell in love with the concept and resulting images. Let’s leave the explaining to Miller himself:

“These pictures are taken with a camera that is, by most definitions, broken: an old Polaroid SX-70 camera rescued from a yard sale. I’ve always loved this camera. It is an ingeniously conceived, complicated bundle of gears and switches with hundreds of moving parts packed in tight like a chrome and leather pistol…

With its first use I realized the camera wasn’t functioning properly. It sometimes spills out two pictures at a time and the film often gets stuck in the gears, exposing and mangling the images in unpredictable ways. Over time I’ve figured out how to control and accentuate aspects of the camera’s flaws but the images themselves are always a surprise…

This project is an unintended exploration into the three-dimensional physical character of an antiquated photographic medium that touches on subjects from the artistic value of chance, to questions of what constitutes a photograph. I say unintended because what I’m focusing on here is a technological anomaly. The failure of a process.

Miller’s attention to these processes has made all of his recent ventures into fine art photography highly refreshing.
