Things are Queer (1973) by Duane Michals

This piece by Duane Michals comprises nine photographs, each one a detail of the one that follows. The first shot shows a bog-standard bathroom. Then the camera pulls back to reveal what is either an oversized man, or an undersized bathroom: the man’s foot is the size of the lavatory-bowl. During the ensuing sequence, it emerges that the photograph of the man in the tiny bathroom is itself a picture in a book being read by another man in an alley. Then it turns out that the man reading the book in the alley is also a picture of a picture in a frame which is hanging on a wall. The final twist in this circuitous tale is the revelation that this picture of the man reading the book in the alley is itself a picture hanging on the original bathroom wall. Things are Queer neatly challenges the viewer’s assumptions about the photographic version of reality. The sequence taken as a whole has a cheeky intrigue - at no point can we actually identify the perspective of the camera, the reality of each shot is superseded by the next.

Family and neighbours mourn during the funeral vigil for Nasimi Elshani, a Kosovar separatist killed by the Serbian forces of Slobodan Milosevic’s government on January 29, 1990 in Nogovac, Kosovo. 
Photograph by Georges Merillon.
This reminds me of a renaissance painting.

Eric Fiol (b.1980, France) - Indian ink on canvas (2009-2010)

Eric Fiol is a French artists and painters working in France. His work is primarily the result of an intuitive and direct experience with the culture and nature environment. His art often takes its form from a reflection on an accumulation of personal photography, that may serve to support and motivate the emergence of new images. (cf. artist’s bio roughly translated by ARTchipel) Many thanks to 2headedsnake for this Tumblr Monday for introducing us Eric Fiol’s work!

Gerhard Richter - Reader. Oil on canvas, 72x102 cm (1994)
“Reader” paints the protrait of Richter’s young wife Sabine Moritz studying a news magazine under an artificial light. Inspired by Vermeer’s Girl Reading a Letter at an Open Window (1657-59), the painting illustrates how Richter fades the boundary between painting and photography and goes beyond the realism with the blurred effect.
