Amaury da Cunha | Après tout

Après tout (After All) represents a turning point in the work of Amaury da Cunha.
His previous series, Saccades (Jolts), was somewhat luminous, infused with a sense of wonder facing the world. Après tout darkens in tone, as wonder gives way to bewilderment. Invading shadows are the backdrop for a photographer depicting himself as blinded. Death and sex are less allusive. A dog bares its fangs, while a bird of prey claws a branch. Yet shafts of light or a glimpsed road suggest that the end is not as impending as we may think. Continue Reading →

Lars Tunbjörk | Vinter

Snowbound streets, buildings and abandoned cars, a dirty snowman standing forlorn in a garden.
But interiors too, and portraits of people in their homes, at work, in cafés and at parties.

For his series Vinter (Winter), Lars Tunbjörk travelled through Sweden from 2004 to 2007 capturing the melancholy winter atmosphere of Northern Europe and recording the mental state that closes in on the people of Scandinavia in the dark months of the year. For Tunbjörk himself, the project was originally primarily a creative way to cope with his own depressive mood, which regularly beset him in the winter months. Continue Reading →

Pietro Motisi | Cemento

Cemento is a photographic project realized with the intention to build a map; it is a work about Sicily made as a path of sensations and perceptions with an eye on the relation between the space and the identity of its inhabitants.

The assumption of this project is to create, quoting the Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri, a ‘zig-zag’ path in which nothing has to be precluded and in which the photographer has to follow his perceptions. That has to be made in order to find/create a track to follow inside a given space, no matter if it is physical or conceptual, and from that track let emerge some of the peculiar characteristics of the secular relationship that links humans to this territory.

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

Toru Ukai (鵜養透) | From the drifting islands

From the drifting islands represents the situation of Tokyo after the earthquake in Japan.
Since that day, surprising disperse from the authorities and the center is silently going on in the depths of this big city. We no longer believe in any official authorities.
On the other side, it seems that people now feel that things after ’3.11′ are different from what they were before, although we are leading as quiet a life as before. We, perhaps, have a bad premonition that full-scale calamities will start to fall on us in no distant future. Continue Reading →

Callum Ross

“Callum Ross’s untitled images give nothing away whilst telling us everything we need to know.
The places that feature in the West series evoke our curious desire to know where the places are:
west… west of where? The answer is not important in that these are less about places and more about the events occurring within the landscape. What is most apparent about these images is their transience of their sense of this is really one moment in an ongoing succession moments. Continue Reading →

Miriam O’Connor | Attention Seekers

Produced over a period of two years, Attention Seekers are a personal portrayal and playful response to everyday scenes, arbitrary spaces and people encountered by photographer Miriam O’ Connor.

While the ordinary or the everyday are habitually tied up with concepts of familiarity and routine, it is here that O’ Connor discovers infinite possibilities for image making, slicing out its details which petition for attention and assimilate allure. The series is characterised by its fragmentary nature, where the interplay of colour, form, scale and sequencing exhibit ambiguous clues and mischievous impressions of O’ Connor’s voyages into the familiar terrain of the everyday.
