A Conversation with Jeff Bierk

PHOTOS BY JEFF BIERK INTERVIEW BY JESS CARROLL  Making art requires an inherent boldness of character. Toronto-based photographer Jeff Bierk is bold, and maybe one of the bravest souls I know, acutely aware of the potential hardships associated with forging an untrodden creative path. Bierk is nonetheless resilient, which allows him to create work that…

Shoot the Breeze: Elizabeth Herring

New York-based photographer Elizabeth Herring has a way of drawing parallels between settings that would normally be overlooked and regarded as mess. She is currently building a body of work exploring her self-defined themes—the body in relation to movement, vertical clutter, critical commentary, store fronts, and her Instagram series #samebutdifferent. Classic black and white contrasted…

Photo Diary: Kikuchi Yuki

PHOTOS & WORDS FROM KIKUCHI YUKI  The day I got to New York, Mac drove all the way from his house to pick me up, bewildered in Brooklyn. As soon as we met again, the first thing out of his mouth was “There’s a party at Cassie’s house tonight. I’m doing a solo show, can…


Shoot the Breeze: Chris Levett

Although Toronto-based Chris Levett is best known for his video work (if you haven’t seen Ashley for Ashley, you should really check it out), he’s also been quietly assembling a great archive of personal photography.

Paintings by Graham Little

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 13 TEXT BY EMILY FRIEDMAN There’s a great excerpt of René Magritte’s writing that celebrates the metaphysical work of Giorgio de Chirico. Here is a visual experience, Magritte suggests, “through which the spectator might recognize his own isolation and hear the silence of the world.” It is no grand challenge to recognize…

Shoot the Breeze: Sergey Melnitchenko

Sergey Melnitchenko shoots all the things I want to shoot: muscles, cocks & nature. The male body/sexuality seems to be the unavoidable focus of Sergey’s work, as seen in his series Schwarzenegger is my idol and Military Commissariat, which is said to be commentary on the political situation in Ukraine, his home country. His series Lonelieness…

Forcing a centuries-old weapon into an allusion of transparency, however, is something else entirely. Take two sticks on…


Shoot the Breeze: Megan Eagles

Megan Eagles is essentially a soft-core pornography photographer. Initially I dismissed her work as simply photos of hot naked women, but upon revisiting her images, I’ve found that they’re much more dynamic than just porn. They are visually striking, and honestly, a turn on. Using only her close friends as her subjects, Megan’s work is personal…

A Conversation with Allie Pohl

INTERVIEW BY RACHEL ELLISON Allie Pohl’s work, on a broad scale, is driven by the commodification of femininity. In more basic terms, she’s inspired by pubic hair. Her first exhibit consisted of a woman’s figure, constructed from porcelain, dismembered, and sprouting chia from its armpits, legs, and pubic region. The installation took the figurine from…
