Transfigure Photography ethos is to find the converging line between the world of film, fine art and commercial photography and bound all those agents together to cook up a dream and add it to a reality. I work with an idea, visualise it and create it. Transfigure Photography says as much about me than the name denotes. I have metamorphosed myself from a snapshot photographer to a professional photographer, photographing many different subjects, from seascapes, portraiture, to monster dump trucks.

Photography for me is walking hand in hand with film making, converging the demand for creative exploration and pushing the boundaries in liberating client’s realities to give their photo shoot a new perspective digitally.

I just don’t use my camera to take photographs I work, blend and arouse, still and moving images.

I'm available for commissioned work.

Antonio Berni

It would have been Antonio Berni Birthday if he had survived 20 more years, he was an Argentinian figurative artist. He is associated with the movement known as Nuevo Realismo, a Latin American extension of social realism and recently Armed Robbers Stole 15 Paintings Made by Antonio Berni in Buenos Aires.

Armed robbers, disguised as policemen stole, 15 paintings made by Argentinean artist Antonio Berni. The paintings have been valued at $2.2 million The news was reported by newspaper La Nacion which said that the robbery happened when a truck was transporting 17 paintings. The truck was detained by two people who simulated being policemen.

The newspaper added that very few people knew that the paintings would be transported. The paintings were made between 1934 and 1981 and they were being moved from the outskirts of Buenos Aires to the city center. Friday, May 15, 2015

So who was Antonio Berni?  Antonio Berniwas born in Rosario, Santa Fe, 1905. In 1925 he traveled to Europe to continue his studies with a scholarship granted by the Jockey Club of Santa Fe. After touring Spain, in 1926 he moved to Paris, wherein frequents the workshops of André Lhote and Othon Friesz. In Paris he became part of the”Paris group”. In this time he met the Marxist philosopher Henri Lefebvre, who presented him the surrealist poet Louis Aragon, who shares Berni ideas about the commitment of art and revolution.
In the early 1930s, Berni banded together with other young artists to start the Nuevo realismo, or “New Realism,” movement, dedicated to highlighting the social injustice, class struggle, and political division that he experienced in his native Argentina. In his monumental painting New Chicago Athletic Club, Berni depicts workingclass youths posing for their portrait. Two years earlier, Berni had worked with the wellknow Mexican muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros, but he ultimately disagreed with Siqueiros’s
conviction that large-scale murals (wall paintings) on public buildings could effect social change in Argentina, as it had in Mexico. Berni not only believed that many forms of art were necessary in the struggle against social injustice, he even went so far as to imply a connection between Siqueiros’s artwork and the privileged classes in Argentina, declaring, “Mural painting is only one of the many forms of  opular artistic expression…. For his mural painting, Siqueiros was obliged to seize on the first board offered to him by the bourgeoisie.”1
In 1930 returns to Argentina to settle with his French wife and daughter in the city of Rosario. In 1931 he joined the Communist Party which he was actively a meber and in 1933 participates with David Alfaro Siqueiros, Lino Enea Spilimbergo, Juan Carlos Castagnino and Enrique Lazaro, in the embodiment of the mural plastic Exercise, the fifth of Natalio Botana, director of the Critical newspaper. Together with other artists, in 1934 he founded the Popular Mutual Students and Artists of Rosario, where he directs the school-workshop.
Berni would express the plight of the working class and the residents of the villas miserias
(shantytowns) most notably during the latter part of his career in the late 1950s and well into the 1970s. His paintings and collages, which resonated with many people at the time they were made and displayed, continue to resonate with the people of Argentina, and indeed the world, to this day. Antonio Berni based his paintings on photographs he took of the unemployed
