Jon: Photographer Matthew Tischler…

Artist Matthew Tischler uses very low tech tools in order to create images that, at first, visually appear highly didgitally altered. Each photograph is constructed by placing a metal screen between the lens and the subject. Tischler then shifts the camera’s focus away from the human subject, hightening the clarity of the screen. The end result is a pixelation of the subject matter. Those being photographed appear seperate from their surrounding (due to the color saturation) as well as unquesionabley a part of it (due to the way the technique blurs the edge of the subject matter, creating and equal playing field of importance for the human subject as well as their surroundings).  The images take on a certain similarity to video freeze frames made on a cheap VCR.

This juxtoposition between low tech hand manipulation and hi tech visual results forces the viewer see these mundane naturalist compositions in a new way. Though often attempted, this is not an easy task for most artist’s to accomplish.

Tischler is currently being featured on everyone’s favorite affordable online art gallery, 20X200. Check it out…
