Call for entries: 2015 BMW Residency at Musée Nicéphore Niépce

Residency 2015: from Monday 7th September to Friday 27th November 2015
Deadline: Wednesday 15th April 2015

BMW values the importance of aesthetics and technological innovation, and supports photography as an original, distinct art form. The Group is strongly rooted in France, including in Chalon-sur-Saône, so the partnership with the Nicéphore Niépce Museum was a logical choice.

This unique, ambitious cultural partnership, set up in 2011, offers an artist’s residency program. Over the past years, the work of the first three prize winners has been showcased to photography professionals and the wider public.

BMW is supporting the entire process from creation to production, culminating in the unveiling of the finished works at the Rencontres d’Arles and Paris Photo, and the publication of a book and and a video illustrating the creative process and the universe of the winning photographer.

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 →

Diane Vincent | OBEN

It’s thirty-six degrees. A dry desert sun burns the roof.
From up here the vast empty ground seems endless.
The heat and the wind touch my skin.
I open a door,
the background noise of the city fades away.
With my eyes closed I see an ocean of weightless light rays –
dancing, floating…
I trust my body.
I’m here.

For several years I climbed numerous rooftops to make pictures, over and over again. For a long time I didn’t know exactly why; I simply felt attached to these strange, unknown and obscure places. I explored my city from a different angle and I photographed architectural situations up there being fascinated by the vastness and expanse as well as its limitation by moments of blocked sights. Eventually I realized that I had compiled a personal map – an imaginary walk in another dimension.
