Nico Baumgarten | How the other half lives

The talented Nico Baumgarten is currently running a crowdfunding-campaign to cover a part of the production costs for his new book. Until the 9th of March you can support the project on indiegogo!
How the other half lives” will be self-published in an edition of 1.000 and will be released in April 2015.

There are beautiful rewards, such as some of Nico’s previously self-published, hand-bound books (of which only few copies remain), postcards & stickers, screen-printed Anarchist-cat T-shirts – and of course, signed copies of the new book itself!

We already got a chance to have a look at the dummy, and we are very fond of this book.
Check it out and please consider supporting this project! Continue Reading →

Greg Girard & Ian Lambot | City of Darkness: Kowloon Walled City revisited

Greg Girard and Ian Lambot started a Kickstarter campaign to publish a new extended edition of their in 1993 released and sold-out book “City of Darkness: Kowloon Walled City” including new photographs and many previously unpublished drawings and documents. The city was the most densely populated place on earth before its demolition in 1992. Although already fully financed you can still support the project until April 18th and receive original prints and signed books as a thank-you. The book will be published in summer 2014.

Neither (2009-2012)

The view of this faded garden explodes my mind and I get paralyzed, I have no clue how to move two legs, let alone a thousand. — Natasha

Neither is an exploration into the hearts of young women in Kaliningrad. The first generation to have grown up after the collapse of the Soviet Union, they look to define their identity in this small ‘island’ within Europe. The women I have been living with and sharing with have generously opened up their homes and their minds to allow me to better understand this link between place, identity and history.

IN TRANSIT – The View of the Other(s)

OPENING: Wednesday, 17.10.2012, 7 pm, Ostkreuz Berlin railway station, Sonntagstrasse/Markgrafendamm, 10245 Berlin
EXHIBITION:
18.10. – 30.11.2012

‘IN TRANSIT – The view of the Other(s)’ takes up the challenge of comprehending photography as a documentary, artistic and political description of the world and presenting it as a participatory project in a public in-transit room at the Ostkreuz Berlin railway station.

Curator Jaana Prüss (Morgengrün Kommunikation) situates ‘the view of the other’ in a discourse on our contemporary societies by drawing images by professional and art photographers into a ‘dialogue of views’ with images by fellow citizens, passers-by and visitors to the European Month of Photography Berlin (EMoP Berlin) who respond to an open call.

Shane Lavalette | Picturing the South

In 2010, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, which for decades has been the leading art museum in the South, commissioned Lavalette to produce a new collection of photographs for their “Picturing the South” series, which includes past artists Sally Mann, Emmet Gowin, Richard Misrach, Dawoud Bey, Alex Webb and Alec Soth.

When I began my project, […] I set out not to create any documentary about Southern Music but something more distinctly lyrical, inspired by the music.
In particular, I’m interested in how the music is shaped by the landscape of the region as well as how our understanding of the landscape is shaped by the music.” – Shane Lavalette, interview with Kate Levy, Daylight Magazine

David Monahan | Leaving Dublin

In the project Leaving Dublin, photographer David Monahan has captured more than 100 imminent emigrants on film as they prepare to leave the city in search of better opportunities abroad.

I fully recognise the difference between this and previous waves of emigration and at the same time I acknowledge that the quest remains the same – the search for a better life. The work honours the courage behind the decision and the fact that moving to a different country can dramatically shape the future lives of those who leave, and has huge impact on those left behind.” –David Monahan
