Matthew Tischler


We’re really enjoying the “Screen Series” photos from New York photographer Matthew Tischler. By having the screens they are shot through be the object that is in focus, they make pixellations of the background scenes in a very analog way: the Tetris-y lines of raindrops, a scene that looks like a blowup of an 80s console game replete with faceless sprites, a blur that looks like low resolution television is really just focal length. I am reminded of the dreamlike qualities of closeups of television images in films like Until the End of the World, Blue Velvet, Videodrome or John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness. And of course nothing says summer in the South (and thus nostalgia) like a screen door.





The first print above, with the rain, is available inexpensively through 20×200.
