Ashley Lebedev
Photographer

Ashley Lebedev is a Fine Art Photographer, specializing in conceptual portraiture & mood scapes. She’s also a writer and neoclassical or contemporary narratives often accompany her pieces. After briefly attending school for Commercial Photography, Ashley quickly chose to venture away from conventional photographic style and developed a taste for telling stories through her photographs.

“I want every piece I create to evoke a dormant memory or to relay a lingering message. I love drawing upon one’s own memories, by stirring them up a bit, or by recreating ideals that hit a sleeping chord within the viewer. Photography is my bittersweet journal & the visual aftermath of a fragmented life. I hope you enjoy these pieces of me. They are all there.”

Ashley currently resides in the United States and shoots exclusively on location, upon a 12 acre farm. Most of her work is created working with all natural light & organic elements found within nature, while placing a continued emphasis towards designing historical characters and fantasy worlds.

    Colombian anthropologist and artist Juan Pablo Plazas is fascinated by the ability of people and communities to interpret the world in different ways. In his practice, he starts from everyday objects and raw materials that have special material or formal properties. With wonder and a sense of humour, he takes them out of their ordinary context, turns them into sculptures or gives them a role in a performance. (more…)
  • Patrick Pound: Windows
    Publication
    Perimeter
    International
    In Windows, Pound’s first photobook with Perimeter Editions, we find a cross-section of images lifted from a single category in Pound’s vast collection of 70,000 photographs. Each of the ‘found’ photographs in this new book features a window seen from the outside. We are allowed to look through them, from the privacy of our own homes. We see ghostly figures and happy families; we see actors acting, and everyday folks acting up; we see real and imagined worlds. (more…)

    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia
    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.

  • Georg Kussmann: FRG

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
