My guest this week is Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers. Jan broke out on the photography scene in 2010 when he published a book called Spomenik. The book documents the giant geometric sculptures that were built across the countryside of the former Yugoslavia in the 60s and 70 as monuments to various sites and battles from World War Two. Jan traveled to these isolated sites to photograph these alien-looking sculptures. Before Jan’s project these monuments were largely unknown except to the people in the small towns where they’re located.
New York-based artist Ross Racine creates aerial views of fictional suburban landscapes. This month his work is part of an upcoming exhibition at the International Print Center in New York. I met with Ross to look over some of his prints and talk about his drawing technique and his interest in aerial views and suburban geography.
