The September 2011 ‘Pictures Of the Month’ are curated by Phillip Kalantzis Cope. Phillip Kalantzis Cope was born in Athens, Greece. Currently based in New York City, he is a photographer and PhD candidate in the Department of Politics of the New School for Social Research. About his curation, Phillip says;

For this months collection I wanted to bring together a number of photographers around what I call ‘Everyday Abstractions.’ There are two dimensions to ‘Everyday Abstractions’. The first being the immaterial ‘abstractions’ that produce the ‘everyday’ material world – knowledge represented in buildings, roads and social life. The second is the visual practice of image making that captures abstract patterns in the material world we have created – reconstituting an immaterial out of the material. We as photographers live in the middle space, between these immaterial abstractions, and the material abstractions. If there is a power to what we do its is sourced to extracting beauty out of this relationship. Here, I am pleased to bring together a group of photographers who capture this relationship, and the everyday beauty in the ecologies of immaterial and material abstract production.
