Funny and disturbing contemporary photography by American artist Alison Brady
This very well known artist from New York aims to mock through unconscious emotions, desires and sexual compulsions. Each of the photograph contains surreal elements as well as aesthetic, which turn them into the very real moments. Could even say it’s an illusion and pure eye trickery!
Algina and Sandra are two souls in one body – SM.AR/T. Before the interview they asked - “when we talk, do not exclude us, the answers will be common; we are just SM.AR/T. Their name is comprised of the initials of both photographers and a “T” letter, hidden after the slash which means “Tave” (You).
1. How did you two start to work together?
We are familiar from a long time ago, first-class, but during the childhood we hadn’t interacted. However, in adolescence, when we started to look at everything a little differently, we found each other and the common interest - photography. We used to go into forests and just took photos there. And yet there were no serious thoughts about photography.
2. Who has led who to photography?
Sandra. Sandra knew for a long time she would become a photographer. I (Algina) studied interior design, then worked, but I did not like it. I was looking for myself elsewhere and then Sandra appeared a photographer, which I needed. Though before that our interaction was interrupted. Once we met unexpectedly at some event and joked that we could work together. Finally, with a more serious attitude, we have made our first series of works. We decided that we like it and need to go further and improve ourselves. We thought a lot on how and what to do, where to work. And after two weeks, we have received our studio premises.
3. Is it easy to find a common creative compromise while working together?
It is very easy. Probably our bio fields just coincide. We see things in a similar way. We are arguing about the colors, if we argue at all. Both of us understand our responsibilities - Sandra’s passion is taking pictures while mine (Algina) is retouch and making art out of it.
4. You agree on creation, but what about business affairs?
We work together not for a long time, for almost a year. Most of our works are made out of idea. While it is our livelihood, but business in our life takes a very small place.
We often choose our customers by voice. If the voice scares us, we feel that it would be difficult to communicate with someone, we reject the proposal.
