Zander Blom : “The Black Hole Universe” (Photography)

‘The Black Hole Universe’ is a long-term photographic book and exhibition project. It involves building makeshift installations in different gallery and studio spaces in cities around the world, and employing them to generate photographic still images for an imaginary futuristic sci-fi noir space film.

René Groebli : ‘Rail Magic’ Series (Photography)

Groebli wanted to photograph, that which is not visible: movement, dynamics and speed. His series “Rail Magic”, is a trailblazing photo essay on the French steam railways, developed in 1949 it’s an interaction of smoke, smell, landscape and romance, a symbol of strength and work of timeless poetry.

Andreas Gefeller : The Japan Series (Photography)

Sensitizing and expanding our perception of what is allegedly a familiar reality is the attitude Düsseldorf-based photographer Andreas Gefeller adopts in his work. His most recent photographs are clearly more formal and structural, and they exhibit striking pictorial qualities.

One of the most dynamic parts of the image to me, whether paintings or photographs, is the frame. Photographs, like paintings, have a frame. They have an extremity and they have a boundary.

Markus Amm : Photograms

In his Untitled series, Markus Amm revives the technique of the photogram. Pioneered as an art form by Man Ray and Moholy Nagy (the latter of which coined the term “photogram”), the process utilises rudimentary photograph principles: objects are placed on a photosensitive surface, and briefly exposed to light to create an abstracted “x-ray” image, an inverted shadow outline of suggestive form.

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.

Stephan Tillmans : Light Point Systems (Photography)

The dot orders are television screens, which were photographed at the moment of being turned off. The shutter button is pressed when the power switch on the television is pressed. The camera captures the image in the moment when it breaks down. The television picture is no longer visible – instead, a structure of light, which in a fraction of a second, disappears in the picture tube and collapses.

Arnold Newman : ‘Early Works’ (Photography Series)

“As for myself, I work the way I do because of the kind of person that I am – my work is an expression of myself. It reflects me, my fascination with people, the physical world around us, and the exciting medium in which I work. I do not claim that my way is the best or the only way, it is simply my way. It is an expression of myself, of the way I think and feel.” – Arnold Newman

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.

Gianni Galassi : Photography Series

Gianni Galassi’s images are focused around the relationship between light and shadow on the surfaces of urban and industrial buildings. Which leads to a set of architectural visions geometrically combined within the frame, emphasizing a whole of elements which transcend the original function of the portrayed artifact, and giving rise to unintentional aesthetic values. The square format sets a distance from the typical rectangular or panoramic frame of movies and TV. A symbol of geometrical purity, the square suggests a formal reading of the image, which is freed from any narrative intention.

The Liège-Guillemins TGV Railway Station in Belgium celebrates movement, openness and transparency. The station creates a sense of place reminiscent of Victorian-era stations and symbolizes the city’s renewal. Built above five active rail platforms and nine tracks, the 35 meter high, 160 meter long vaulted station is a major hub for high-speed trains.

Bruno Cals : Horizons (Photography)

These photographs are suggestive of something beyond the record presented. They explore the limits of two-dimensionality, and articulate a radically different perspective on a commonplace visual scenario. In expressing this fresh point of view, Bruno Cals has invoked contrasting themes of possibility versus impossibility, presence versus emptiness, and search versus satisfaction.

“Enduring Giants, Created by Man” is a study of grain silos, not as functional farm implements, but as objects of art. America’s plains are covered with grain silos. They are a central fixture of every small town and on every family farm; but they are so common that people are unaware of their beauty. The purpose of this portfolio is to reveal that beauty.

It offered the analogy of the conciliation of opposites, a theme underlying much of his work. Hervé’s images are singed with the blackness of shadows set against expanses of white.

Idris Khan : “Bernd and Hilla Becher” Works (Photography)

Since 1959 Bernd and Hilla Becher have been photographing industrial structures that exemplify modernist engineering, such as gas reservoirs and water towers. These works are often presented in groups of similar design; their repeated images make these everyday buildings seem strangely imposing and alien. Idris Khan’s Every… Bernd And Hilla Becher… series appropriates the Bechers’ imagery and compiles their collections into single super-images.

“The process of capturing an image through a camera lens requires “an object.” This body of work addresses the representational value of that object. By photographing a transparent plane, and its shadow, familiar association with life experience is eliminated. The result is a “concrete photographic” abstract image.”[bk]

Isa Leshko : ‘Thrills & Chills’ (Photography)

Amusement park rides terrify me, which is why I began photographing them. I am fascinated by what compels people to surrender themselves to these mechanical beasts. The rides seem to challenge the very limitations of being human. We can’t fly; yet these vertigo-inducing machines allow us to soar through the open air. The experience combines elation with fear; thrills with chills.
