If there is a merit that should be attributed to Instagram is to have reminded us of beauty, the world that is hidden in a photo. Even more so in an analogical image, in the polaroids of old family albums, in the portraits of saturated colors of icons of the past, in the editorials of the old Vogue numbers, in the refined and powerful black and white shots of the masters of photography , those in which light or its absence sculpt a story. Each fragment is triggered by a nostalgia effect that has the flavor of rediscovery, of a time that we have lived or of which we would like to capture the aesthetics. It's the same sort of social romance that embraces Maria Fi in her Instagram @analogvibes account.

This visual merchandiser of Kazakh origin based in Cologne merges with an aesthetic taste involving art icons like Frida KahloYayoi KusamaHelen FrankenthalerTracey Emin e Georgia O 'Keefe with stars of the 90s as PJ HarveyBjörkFiona Apple e Chloë Sevigny, but also with fashion shots and legendary photographers such as Helmut Newton, Martin ParrJuergen Teller e Glen Luchford. The result is a treasure of snapshots, inspirations that Fi puts together following the mood of the moment and the interesting things that it finds around.

"It's a mix of people or photographers I admire, I just enjoy sharing discoveries that stimulate me at a particular moment, it's spontaneous."

Tell me. Everything is spontaneous, yes, but not random. Because behind its posts there is a barely visible thread that makes it all homogeneous, interesting, irresistible, delicious. It can be a color, yellow ocher, a splash of red, a smoky lilac or a rose that combines the eyeshadow of Amber Valetta for an editorial Harper's Bazaar of 1998 to a portrait of Yayoi Kusama in her studio in New York. Browse through the choices of @analogvibes and let yourself be conquered.

In 1996, Tracey Emin lived in a locked room in a gallery for fourteen days, with nothing but a lot of empty canvases and art materials, in an attempt to reconcile herself with paintings. Viewed through a series of wide-angle lenses embedded in the walls, Emin could be watched, stark naked, shaking off her painting demons. Starting by making images like the artists she really admired (i.e. Egon Schiele, Edvard Munch, Yves Klein), Emin’s two-week art-therapy session resulted in a massive outpouring of autobiographical images, and the discovery of a style all her own. The room was extracted in its entirety, and now exists as an installation work. _______________ #ph unknown #traceyemin "Exorcism of the Last Painting I Ever Made" 1996 #art #90s #paintings #artwork #nude
