Werner Amann – Surf Fiction

SURF FICTION is Werner Amann‘s unpublished work from 1997. It engages with social reality and image bound-culture in Los Angeles and other urban centers in the U.S. Beyond a mere documentary or created approach, SURF FICTION interlinks photography with collages, typography, video stills, abrupt breaks and double page spreads – switching with each page turn from one plot to another. The work plays with projections of a myth that regenerates itself from day to day, producing an image of Los Angeles and at the same time a visual reflection on modern reality. Continue Reading →

Simon Rimaz | Unusual View of Unknown Subjects

Unusual View of Unknown Subjects, 2013

This series is a body of work based on press photographs that have been collected in various newspaper archives in the United States. All images that are published in the press are regularly gathered in these archives where they are marked, numbered and indexed by date or key words. The prints are full of peripheral elements that explain their existence and legitimacy.

From amongst all these marks, I have focused on the indications showing how the image was to be cropped for publication. These “stigmata” are proof of the use of the image and of its transformation. They take the shape of visual (sometimes textual) dialogues between the protagonists who have handled it. Parallel stories in themselves, these annotations are also indications of “that-which-has-been”, a notion that is so fundamental in the history of the photographic medium. Continue Reading →

Aglu Books: Qian Yongning | Status

The people in Qian’s Status inhabit a strange, almost dream-like existence. We catch fleeting glimpses of them as they move through the photograph – their Status unknown. Qian’s dream sequences reveal moments of quietness and reflection of lives lived.

Qian Yongning is a Chinese photographer based in Shanghai. He has exhibited widely across China and work features in collections across Europe, China and USA. Alongside his photography interests, Qian also lectures at Shanghai University. Continue Reading →

SPACES
“Spaces“ exhibition brings together Berlin’s photographers in an attempt to explore photography in all its dimensions. The expanse between the photobook, as an independent space, and the „Urban Spree Galerie“ as an open exhibition area is the main theme of this exhibition. Our exhibition is not only dedicated to the various forms of photographic depiction but also investigates the medium’s potential as an art form, expanding photography’s capacity of representation.The forms of enactment raise the question of how the pictures on the wall, in books or as installations change and affect the viewer’s perception.

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.

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.
