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.

“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.

Jean-Pierre Attal : ‘Cells’ Series (Photography)

In the heart of cities, the façade of one of those office blocks in a commercial center often appears, especially at night, as the page of a still indecipherable grimoire for which we’ve lost any closeness. The modern city keeps people more and more distanced from its functions and its authorities.

Berndnaut Smilde : ‘Nimbus’ Series (Probe – Exhibition)

Berndnaut is fascinated by anything in between… Corridors and clouds, not yet there and not yet solid. What if a sculpture were to be nothing but thin air, smoke or scent? We’d discuss the merits of one cloud over the other or would we just shut up in awe.

Sven Hamann : Photography

German painter and photographer, Sven Hamann puts his eyes on the common architecture and daily life. Almost abstract details of his photographs reveal the beauty fronts. Sometimes unexpected beauty. For his shots, Sven Hamann takes as the subject that residential buildings and anonymous currents away from stardom projects renowned architects.

Julian Faulhaber : Low Density Polyethylene Series

Faulhaber‘s latest series was shot in newly constructed spaces in the time between when they were completed and when they became occupied or used. The intense colors and sheen result from exposure times of 10 to 20 seconds, the perspective selected and the artificial light at the location, rather than from post-production.

Luis Mallo : Open Secrets (Photography Series)

The places I’ve chosen to photograph for this project are concealed or out of bounds (at least to the general public), but most significantly, they are used to contain and preserve valuable objects. Some of these sites for example, include storage areas from major art museums.

Pierre Siedel : ‘Underground Reflexion’ (Color C-Prints)

This sequence of photographic works started as a coincidence. On my way back from a photo shoot in a park I suddenly asked her to pose in the middle of the subway’s swarming crowd. After the shot, I realized that I used the same approach a few years ago at the Essaouira Port in Morocco, where a seagull quietly drifted in the sky amid the hasty flight of others birds.

It’s often said that the camera never lies, it does not always tell us the most meaningful of truths and the task of the fine art photographer is to endow the raw image with further layers of meaning.

Luis Mallo : ‘In Camera’ Series (Photography)

Luis Mallo’s large-scale urban landscapes (most made in his Brooklyn neighborhood) are cleverly realized perceptual puzzles. In each photo, chicken wire, slats, net or fencing of some sort occupies the picture’s foreground, interrupting but not entirely obscuring our view of the factory, parking lot or construction site beyond.

Hans Wilschut : Photography Series

Hans Wilschut creates works that stand alone instead of belonging to a formal series. However, certain themes take shape when looking at his work. His images respond to a world in flux and undergoing globalisation. Wilschut searches the boundaries between public and private domain at the frayed edges of cities for places where changes merge and manifest.

Saul Leiter : Photography (Early Colour)

“Leiter’s sensibility placed him outside the visceral confrontations with urban anxiety associated with photographers such as Robert Frank or William Klein. Instead, for him the camera provided an alternate way of seeing, of framing events and interpreting reality. He sought out moments of quiet humanity in the Manhatten maelstrom, forging a unique urban pastoral from the most unlikely of circumstances.”

Krystina Stimakovits : ‘Thresholds’ (Photography Book)

What is it within the life-less fragments of our physical environment that either stirs our psyche or leaves us indifferent? Is it the underlying patterns of geometric lines and forms as Kandinsky’s theories might suggest? Or is it the angle of fleeting light falling upon surfaces? Alternatively, is it simply whether or not objects and textures depicted manage to catalyse in us significant memories, however sub-conscious?

Ernst Haas : Colour Photography

“I never really wanted to be a photographer. It slowly grew out of the compromise of a boy who desired to combine two goals — explorer or painter. I wanted to travel, see and experience. What better profession could there be than the one of a photographer, almost a painter in a hurry, overwhelmed by too many constantly changing impressions? But all my inspirational influences came much more from all the arts than from photo magazines.”

Cities, and the people who animate them, are the basis of his humanistic approach. Aside from his commercial campaigns, Guillou’s personal work records moments of ordinary life, where men and women are photographed during their daily routines in urban landscapes.

If his photographs suggest a poetic vision of the ordinary and call upon the imagination of each and every one of us, they also question us on the temporality [material matter] of places, reveal their nearly organic power as well as their fragility, and examine man’s relationship with the constructed universe.
