In the spring of this year, photographer Kurt Dietrich Wilberding returned from his first trip to Pakistan—a country that brought on new challenges photographically from his recent work for The Wall Street Journal covering national events, such as the 2008 primaries and the recent finance crisis on Wall Street. Wilberding’s images document some of the intimate and daily struggles that take place behind the headlines of Pakistan’s escalating violence.

Untitled, 14 x 11 inches, 2008



Julia Rommel’s work demonstrates an obsessive interest in the
seductive power, and the absurdity, of a handmade mark of paint.
Brushstrokes are casually created and then painstakingly rendered, and
repeated- each new mark modeled after the original, blurring the act
of representation and abstraction in the construction of a painting.
