Takashi Homma - Scandinavian Mushroom

2016

Various species of mushrooms from the far northern reaches of Europe are the subject of this cryptically brief series of colour photographs by Takashi Homma. Inspired by the word paintings of Ed Ruscha, Homma takes the Ruscha-style cover’s introduction of a cut-and-dried theme and expands upon it, literally and visually. It seems, however, that the photographer is not such an avid mushroom hunter, since relatively few examples are pictured. Many pages are in fact blank.

Takashi Homma - Thirtyfour Parking Lots

2016

Whether seen from above or close up, fully occupied or completely deserted, softly illuminated at night or baking under a glaring sun, the parking lots that Takashi Homma has photographed in different cities around the world are all more or less the same. Inspired by the word paintings of Ed Ruscha, Homma takes the Ruscha-style cover’s introduction of a cut-and-dried theme and expands upon it, literally and visually. Amsterdam, Vancouver, Melbourne, Tokyo, Brasilia, Chandigarh, Warsaw, Reykjavik, and Los Angeles are some of the places where wide expanses of asphalt and concrete stretch away from office complexes, fast food chains, industry, residential blocks, and more.

Takashi Homma - Various Covered Automobiles

2016

Japanese photographer Takashi Homma takes the banal to new depths with this series, which is nothing more than the title suggests. Inspired by the word paintings of Ed Ruscha, Homma takes the Ruscha-style cover’s introduction of a cut-and-dried theme and expands upon it, literally and visually. Here is a collection of images of cars bundled under wraps, parked outdoors or under buildings. Although the images are made in colour, the subjects are entirely nondescript, and their contexts are equally anonymous. Only one instance deviates from the rest, being covered by snow.

Gesichter des Nordens

Seit mehr als 25 Jahren dokumentiert Ragnar Axelsson (RAX) den traditionellen Lebensstil der Menschen in Island, Grönland und der Färöer Inseln und die extremen Lebensbedingungen im immerwährenden Eis.

Scarlett Hooft Graafland - Shores Like You

Amerikas Cowboys

Sieveking Verlag, 2016

Es gibt sie heute noch, die Cowboys, nur haben sie sehr wenig mit irgendwelchen Westernhelden aus Hollywood oder mit der Plakatwerbung der Tabakindustrie gemein. Mehr als ein Jahrzehnt hat der New Yorker Fotograf Luis Fabini mit den Cowboys den kargen Alltag geteilt und zeigt uns die raue Lebenswirklichkeit dieser Männer, die noch heute in den Weiten des amerikanischen Kontinents auf ihren Pferden das Vieh über Hochebenen, Prärien oder durch Sumpflandschaften treiben.

Invisible City

Steidl Verlag, 2016

For a decade, Ken Schles watched the passing of time from his Lower East Side neighborhood. His camera fixed the instances of his observations, and these moments became the foundation of his “invisible city.” Friends and architecture come under the scrutiny of his lens and, when sorted and viewed in the pages of this book, a remarkable achievement of personal vision emerges. Twenty-five years later, Invisible City still has the ability to transfix the viewer. A penetrating and intimate portrayal of a world few had entrance to - or means of egress from - Invisible City stands alongside Brassai’s Paris de Nuit and van der Elsken’s Love On The Left Bank as one of the twentieth century’s great depictions of nocturnal bohemian experience. Documenting his life in New York City’s East Village during its heyday in the tumultuous 1980s, Schles captured its look and attitude in delirious and dark honesty. Long out of print, this "missing link" in the history of the photo book is now once again made available. Using scans from the original negatives and Steidl’s quadratone technique to bring out nuance and detail never seen before, this new edition transcends the original of this underground cult classic.

Peter Lindbergh - A Different History of Fashion

2016

Vier Jahrzehnte Modefotografie von Peter Lindbergh: Als der deutsche Fotograf Peter Lindbergh 1989 fünf junge Models, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Tatjana Patitz, Cindy Crawford und Christy Turlington, in der Innenstadt von New York ablichtete, schuf er nicht nur das zum Kult gewordene Titelbild der Januarausgabe 1990 der britischen Vogue, sondern läutete damit auch die Ära der Supermodels ein. Das Bild markierte den Beginn eines neuen Modezeitalters und eines neuen Verständnisses von weiblicher Schönheit. Zeitgleich mit seiner großen Retrospektive in der Kunsthal Rotterdam stellt dieser Band über 400 Bilder aus vier Jahrzehnten Lindbergh-Fotografie zusammen, um seine einzigartige und revolutionäre Herangehensweise an die Modefotografie zu würdigen. Seine charakteristisch monochromen Bilder, die zugleich roh und verführerisch wirken, sind durch einen romantischen und erzählerischen Gestus gekennzeichnet, der der Kunst- und Modewelt ganz neue Impulse gab.

Jan Kempenaers - Composite (Limited Edition and Signed Photo)

2016

Jan Kempenaers has been photographing urban and natural landscapes for over two decades. For this series of images, he applies the formal language of the documentary style, with its detached viewpoint emphasising the isolation and desolation of the strange structures in the frame. This causes a heightened sense of inaccessibility in the viewer, a sense of alienation exacerbated by the alien nature of the structures themselves. What are these objects, who built them, and why? Interspersed are composite photographs Kempenaers has made by cutting details from the images and overlapping them, thereby creating darkly idiosyncratic renderings of the same subjects.
