Prismatic Compositions

Since innovative photographic duo JUCO (comprising Julia Galdo (b. 1984) and Cody Cloud (b. 1977)) first met at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2002, they rapidly became a powerhouse for creative responses to fashion and advertising. Custom-made sets are alive with intricate patterns and correlating colours, blurring the lines between fine art and commercial assignments. Editorial commissions demonstrate an awareness for brand exposure whilst injecting the spirited imagination that has attracted global companies and magazines such as Foam, The New Yorker, Saatchi and Saatchi, Sony Music, Teen Vogue and Microsoft. Delving into their archival material provides an explosion of energy: stripes, polka dots and flora dominate style choices, which jar against block backgrounds. Meanwhile, bowls of jelly and geometric cakes provide textural relief both as stunningly bold props and examples of an unequalled attention to detail. www.jucophoto.com.
