Flynn Newton Artist Bio:

J. Flynn Newton is the alias for german photographer Jürgen F. Novotny who is best known for his CAMERASELFIES project. What happens when photo cameras would come up with the idea to take selfies? Historical, bizarre and beautiful cameras capture themselves... on background of contemporary wallpapers. Featured on CNN, LUI, LensCulture, ProfiFoto a.m.o. In the digital age very often the sensation of those mechanical miracles seems to disappear, in a time where "analog" film cameras retain their sometimes strange and special character while the digital design is seemingly far ahead by any means (www.cameraselfies.com) By adding colors - with his pop art series "COLORIMPOSSIBLE“ - J. Flynn Newton alias Jürgen F. Novotny wants to exaggerate his subjects and their messages, sometimes reducing them to absurdity, sometimes highlighting their presence. By showing these subjects „overdressed“ the such post processed photographies seem to unveil their real significance (www.colorimpossible.com). COLORLIMITED: How do the various colors influence our mood, what is the impact of Red, Green, Violet? And what happens when seemingly everyday objects try to camouflage themselves and begin to merge with their backgrounds? This time photographer J. F. Novotny - known for his CameraSelfies - combines colors, backgrounds and sometimes absurd items …resulting in beautiful, shouting, contemplative, minimalistic and often grotesque still lives. By capturing his painting like still lifes in different shades of a single color, photographer J. Flynn Newton (alias J. F. Novotny) coincidentally hides and exaggerates his minimalistic subjects: vases filled with unusual, almost bizarre objects which - in comparison to usual lifestyle accessories - catch the spectator's view (www.colorlimited.de)
