Zhou Jun : The Red and the Black

The three decades of development China is experiencing – building to a crescendo with the Olympics – are unparalleled in history. The colour red, which I use to highlight specific parts of the photograph, can elicit different responses in people from different countries or cultures – at times, it can even have opposite meanings for people.

Paul van Hulzen : ‘On the Road’ Series (Photography)

Paul van Hulzen photographs ‘places’. Besides urban locations, these can also include ‘landscapes’, interiors and even objects. He makes no fundamental distinction between a ‘natural landscape’ and a more urban environment.

Tim Lisko : ‘Shinkansen’ Series (Photography)

When I make a photograph, I am literally cropping out the rest of existence — its tension, its chaos, its hunger, its pain. For one small moment, I wall myself into a world of my own creation; a world where things may not make immediate narrative or logical sense, but where everything is in balance.

Linus Lohoff : ‘Subjects’ (Photography Series)

“Things from the beach at the beach, where the light makes them look like sculptures or installations. This light gives them importance and beauty even if they’re just small buildings of human creation.”

João Castilho : ‘Spice’ (Photography)

Photographed in Bolivia’s Uyuni Salt Flats this series forms part of a larger body of work begun in 2008 involving interventions in nature. In the case of Spice, the choice of pepper and saffron spices to make the interventions was inspired by the space itself: a desert of salt. These interventions are inherently ephemeral, and were made to be photographed. The work intersects other forms of art, with elements from painting (the use of pigments) and Land Art (transforming the landscape).

James Pomerantz : Agua Sagrada (Photography)

“After hanging out for a little while, I noticed how people were drawn to the light and how they would interact with it. Some were clearly anxious about swimming in the dark water and looking for the security of the sun. Others seemed to seek out its warmth. Some would stare up into the light. Others would float face down, peering into water.” James Pomerantz

Astrid Kruse Jensen : Photography

Astrid Kruse Jensen’s photographs are conceived through the encounter between dark and light – in the twilight zone between the illuminated and the hidden, between the real and the imaginary. They are taken at dusk and at night because she mostly uses the ambient light sources on locations.
