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.

Gabriel Benaim : “Wall Art” Series (Photography)

I photograph in order to learn something new about what’s in front of me. The process of photographing is, for me, one of discovering visual interest in the myriad forms presented to us, and of overcoming the habits that make our perceptions grow dull. Against Duchamp, I believe in retinal art, and attempt in my work to avoid preconceptions and formulas.

Bohnchang Koo : ‘White’ Series (Photography)

Bohnchang’s work has always dealt with impermanence, with the decay and disappearance of living things. In his recent work, Koo continues this long journey to capture the fleeting and the mortal. In these spare natural landscapes—the sea, pine needles on snow, dust on a wall, withered vines —the artist renders scenes of exquisite beauty while evoking the inexorable passage of time.

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.

Dirk Braeckman : Photography Series

There are few photographers more committed to the specifics of their own medium. Rather, his antipathy to easy snapshots, his concern with the mysteriousness of banal things and rooms, with letting a place reveal itself slowly through time

Michael Najjar : ‘Netropolis’ (Hybrid Photography)

The series ‘Netropolis’ [2003 – 2006] is an exploration of the way global cities will develop in the future. In 1926 director Fritz Lang created the vision of a futuristic 21st Century megacity in his film ‘Metropolis’. Now that we’ve crossed the threshold of the 21st Century new sets of factors unthought of by Lang move to shape the future of our urban species.

Maria Stromvik : ‘Waterscapes’ Series (Photography)

Maria Stromvik is an amateur photographer who started photographing in the summer of 2009. She grew up by the seaside in southern Sweden, and the sea – as well as water in other forms – is a recurrent theme in many of her photographs. The choice of working in black and white was never really a choice.

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.

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.

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

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.

“Move on objects with your eye straight on, to the left, around to the right. Watch them grow large as you approach, group and regroup themselves as you shift your position. Relationships gradually emerge and sometimes assume themselves with finality. And that’s your picture.” Aaron Siskind

Renato D’Agostin : Tokyo Untitled (Photography Series)

Longing to break the unconscious, immediate and easy processes of the known and the predictable, I traveled to Tokyo for the first time. I was immediately struck by a sense of disorientation and an inability to quickly locate my own position within the geography of the city.

Mark Citret : Photography Series

The photographs in this exhibit and catalogue were made with big cameras on tripods and small cameras handheld. What they have in common is that they all point in a direction to which I have always been drawn. It’s perhaps best described as a fascination with the mundane and the commonplace, which for a moment, because of a quirk of the light, some momentary whimsy or fleeting recognition, become, for lack of a better word, beautiful.

Ilya Askinazi : ‘A Pointed View’ (Photography Series)

The subjects include the figure, landscapes and the urban environment. Askinazi possesses an innate ability to hone in on the most unique aspects of his chosen subjects — seeing beautiful abstract moments in nature and depicting the seductive qualities of light.

Laurent Millet : ‘Les Monolithes’ Series (Photography)

“In my imagination,” says Millet, “I was seeing these engines, half-covered by the water, like geometric shapes.” It’s not necessary to know what he was thinking when he made these pictures to feel they have a somber quality. And yet there is a delicacy about them too, in the irregularity of their outside lines, and in the flimsiness of the shapes themselves. “I have a strong necessity to build things,” he says, “but now my constructions have become faster and lighter.”

Cecil Touchon : Photography Series

Why do I make the art I make? What am I doing? What inspires me to do it? I don’t really ask myself those questions on a verbal level. I have been at work for so many years that I have answered these questions to my own satisfaction and I continue to answer them through the work that I produce.

Pansa Sunavee : Photography Series

For me, photography is just like a door conveying the aesthetics of art. It is a kind of art created from the real situation around me which can happen every second. Sometimes I seek for the beauty of things surrounded and then shoot them with personal perspectives and feeling towards the objects or incidents.

Peter Moons : “Guillemins” Series (Photography)

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.

Andreas Gefeller : The Japan Series (Photography)

Gefeller takes at least two shots of utility poles vertically from below. In the subsequent digital composite the poles disappear, and the innumerable cables and transformers are converted into an abstract composition against a monochrome background. The absence of points of reference and orientation in these works opens up a new perspective on familiar situations.

Brett Weston : ‘Abstraction Portfolios’ (Photography)

The two portfolios titled Abstractions, first issued in 1980, offered Brett Weston a general concept within which to collect and publish forty of the best pictures from his entire career. At age sixty-nine he may have thought of these portfolios as a kind of retrospective, even though he was by no means finished taking pictures and always said that the photograph he most cared about was the next one.
