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.

Hans-Christian Schink : ’1h’ Series (Photography)

Photography is centered on light and time. Typically, they’re not independent – the amount of light available tends to determine the amount of time needed for a photograph. Exposure usually needs to be done properly, because not doing so results in all kinds of unwanted effects, such as under or overexposed images. Of course, this needn’t necessarily be bad.

Michael Wesely : ‘Long Exposures’ (Photography)

For more than a decade, Michael Wesely has been inventing and refining techniques for making photographs with unusually long exposures-some as long as three years. In 1997 he began using this unique approach to photography to explore major urban construction projects, such as the rebuilding of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin.

Valéry Lippens : ‘Haecceity’ Series (Photography)

Valery Lippens strives to create in his series ‘Haecceity’ a more accurate portrayal of our perceptions. Lippens captures commuters in their turbulent spontaneity rushing from one train to the next and creates one large image comprised of approximately 350 miniature photos.

Sylvie Bonnot : ‘Eire’ Series (Photography)

On looking closely at the genesis of Sylvie Bonnot’s work, we begin to realize that the photography is at first, if not a pretext, at least an auxiliary to a walk through a landscape, to pace up and down a territory, to submerge there physically, to merge into it, to embody it.

Grant Mudford : Photography Series

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.

Matthew Pillsbury : ‘Screens’ Series (Photography)

“A photograph can reveal extraordinary visual truths that lie beyond the limits of our perception of the world. We all know that in using a short exposure, a photograph can capture things we cannot see. A celebrated example is Muybridge’s study of the biomechanics of a galloping horse. In using much longer exposures, from a few minutes to over an hour, I seek truths and beauty in our everyday world that are equally surprising to us.” Matthew Pillsbury

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.

William Gale Gedney : ‘Cross Country’ Series (Photography)

From the mid 1950s through the early 1980s, Gedney photographed throughout the United States, India and Europe. From street scenes outside his Brooklyn apartment to the daily chores of unemployed coal miners, from the indolent lifestyle of hippies in Haight-Ashbury to the sacred rituals of Hindu worshippers, he recorded the lives of others with remarkable clarity and poignancy.

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.

Michelle Kloehn : Unseen (Tintype Series)

I started using the wet plate technique eight years ago, when I went off to a residency and holed myself up in the darkroom until I figured out how the process worked. From there I have created several bodies of work- each one generating more questions for myself. Lately I have been thinking about light and shadow, about abstraction and representation, about the difference between what we think we see and what we want to see.

Michael Flomen : Photograms

In his large-format, black-and-white photographs, Flomen captivates our optic and draws it toward what is hidden in plain sight, sequestered between darkness and the light. He draws our attention to the liminal spaces that exist between tenses, conditions of matter, and even states of being.

Sabine Hornig : ‘Windows’ Series (Photography)

For Sabine Hornig, the window represents a basic, transparent, grid-like system that incorporates her ideas on the gaze, view and perspective, which oscillate between image and sculpture. Hornig finds the windows she uses in her photographs incidentally in modern cities, mostly in Berlin.

Dan Holdsworth : ‘Blackout’ Series (Photography)

Occupying a space between documentary and the make-believe, these photographs, reproduced to a grand scale, transform the elemental terrain of giant Icelandic glaciers as they melt away into a strange, futuristic landscape. Blackout’s awe-striking photographs appear so otherworldly it is almost impossible to believe that these lunar-style landscapes actually exist.

David Maljkovic : ‘Recalling Frames’ (Exhibition)

The title of David Maljkovic’s solo exhibition can be understood in relation to his current body of work but also indicates a recurring theme in his artistic practice: recalling ideas from the past and analysing their impact on the present. He introduces places, their architectural structures and their underlying concepts in modified pictorial arrangements as a means of determining their current potential.

Mitch Dobrowner : Photography

Landscapes are living eco systems and environments. They have existed well before, and will hopefully be here way beyond the time we are here. When taking photographs, time and space seem hard for me to measure. Whenever I shoot a ‘quality’ image, I know it. At those moments things are quiet, seem simple again – and I obtain a respect and reverence for the world that is hard to communicate through words.

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.

Heidi Leverty : ‘Outbox’ Series (Photography)

This body of work is about recycled and discarded items that no longer perform the functions for which they were intended. What appears to be without value is in fact a source of inspiration, a bounty of objects d’art. Removed from their first use, these materials of paper, metal, plastic and fabric secrete an unexpected visual richness, the product of chance.

Edgar Martins : “When Light Casts no Shadow” Series.

In reflecting on the complexity of the negotiations between estranged lives and de-territorialised worlds, one might wonder if the generic city is synonymous with the contemporary airport. Immured in temporality and suffering from a sense of historical discontinuity, the airport is the elementary expression of abstract space.

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.

Kevin J Miyazaki : ‘Fast Food’ Series (Photography)

The series ‘Fast Food’ (2004 – Present) tracks the visual imprint made by the American fast food restaurant on our cultural landscape. These are unsentimental spaces created through corporate analysis of demographics, traffic flow and consumer desire.

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

Nathan Harger : Photography

Nathan Harger photographs the infrastructure that powers American industry: Cranes, telephone wires, airplanes, bridges, factories, more telephone wires. What others use for commerce and profit, Harger makes into art. Harger started art school planning to become a designer, but fell in love with the “instant gratification” of photography.

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.

Roseanne Lynch : “Document” Series (Photography)

This body of work presents a sustained investigation of light; light that has no material substance and is illusory. This investigation focuses on the immaterial; through it I observe how light molds and moves, light defining the planes, how our reading of a subject can be altered by its interaction with light – sometimes dramatically.

Friederike von Rauch : Photography

Friederike von Rauch photographs buildings. A complete building or merely a detail. The building on its own, or within its surroundings. The interior or the exterior. Her photographs are meticulously stylized. The framing and the angle are chosen with care. She describes herself as an intuitive photographer.

Chris McCaw : Sunburned

McCaw investigates the primal side of photography by using its most basic components—a lens, time and light—producing one-of-a-kind prints in which the sun itself burns its mark on the paper. The inspiration for this work was born of an accident of chance: While attempting to photograph the night sky, McCaw fell asleep and woke up too late to end the exposure, discovering that the rising sun had produced a violent change in his negative.

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.

Rocky Schenck : Photography

my approach is rather simple: I record on film what I see and feel as I travel through life. Although my photographs have been taken all over the world, theres a consistency to the imagery due to the manipulation of both the film’s negative and of the prints surface. I consider my images to be illustrations of my conscious (and perhaps subconscious) dreams, emotions, and longings.
