JUCO – Julia Galdo (b. 1984) and Cody Cloud (b. 1977) – return to Aesthetica with characteristically bold images that demonstrate excellence in art direction and photography. Vivid patterns, organic textures and built-up sets come together to create deeply animated and visually satisfying interiors. Realised as a collaboration with Los Angeles-based artist duo Kat and Roger – Kat Hutter and Roger Lee – the compositions centre around multi-dimensional surfaces, classic shapes and natural clay ceramics, blending contemporary fashion with traditional craftsmanship and a renaissance of the handmade. An intriguing world is created through colour blocking and fluid lines – primary reds, blues and yellows are rendered as Venn diagrams that overlap into secondary and tertiary palettes. Ultimately, JUCO navigate a world of successful imagery through playful narrative, contemporary design and visual contrast. www.jucophoto.com.
