Matthew Tischler: Screen Series
New York-based photographer Matthew Tischler’s Screen Series captures his subjects through window screens, netting and lightweight mesh cloth. The technique filters out detail, effectively flattening out landscapes and space in richly saturated colours to create captivating visuals that resemble pixelated video stills.
“I wanted to create a visual style that was both nostalgic and modern,” says Tischler. “There is a sense of wistful melancholia and longing associated with the hazy screens – as if one was looking out of a window and daydreaming. But there is also the suggestion of a visual language of structure and code imposed by the grid. I am interested in how we psychologically experience a natural landscape viewed through a window versus a digital environment viewed through a computer screen.”
