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.

Galerie Ori: Constanze Kratzsch | Fiction

Die Künstlerin Constanze Kratzsch hinterfragt in ihrer Arbeit „Fiction“ die Auswirkungen der Genmanipulation an Lebewesen und der Biotechnologie, die an der Erfindung des Kyborg forscht, einem Mischwesen aus lebendigem Organimus und Maschine. Dabei bedient sie sich fabelartigen Wesen, die wie Drohnen im menschenleeren sterilen Architekturraum umher schweben. Continue Reading →

Sarah Moon | About Colour

Exhibition: 20.02. – 05.04.2014
Michael Hoppen Gallery
3 Jubilee Place, London, SW3 3TD

It is difficult to summarise Sarah Moon‘s fantastical photography – almost thirty years of image making has made Sarah Moon a legend in her own lifetime. Well known for her personalised commercial and editorial work since the early 1970s, Moon has continued to investigate a dream world of her own invention, without repetition or compromise. For more than thirty-five years, Moon’s heart-stopping fashion images have bucked every so-called commercial trend, from the need to establish eye contact – it is only rarely there – to the belief that the most alluring fashion photograph must be glossy, even hyper-real.

About Colour’ brings together new, old and unseen works, photographed exclusively in colour. Continue Reading →

Juliane Eirich kannte Japan schon von früheren Besuchen, als sie im Sommer 2011 zurückkehrte, um hier zu arbeiten. Aber dieses Mal war vieles anders. Einige Monate zuvor hatte sich die Reaktorkatastrophe von Fukushima ereignet. Die Begeisterung für und die Neugier auf das fremde Land mischte sich mit einem unterschwelligen Gefühl der Angst und der Bedrohung. Continue Reading →
