Kikuji Kawada : ‘Chizu – The Map’ Series (Photography Book)

No photobook has been more successful in combining graphic design with complex photographic narrative… [as its] various layers inside [are] peeled away like archaeological strata, the whole process of viewing the book becomes one of uncovering and contemplating the ramifications of recent Japanese history

Matthew Gamber : ‘Any Colour You Like’ (Photography)

The photographs in Any Color You Like are an experiment in how photography can confuse our perception of information. These images represent objects whose primary function is to simulate our observation of color.

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.

Krystina Stimakovits : Photography Series

A quote from Gary Winogrand has lodged itself indelibly in my mind: “There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described”. It is this seemingly contradictory combination of mystery and fact that keeps me searching from the corners of my eye.

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.”

Fan Ho : ‘Hong Kong Yesterday’ Series (Photography)

Inspired by the Bauhaus point of view and a strong sense of abstraction, Fan Ho’s cosmopolitan, multicultural Hong Kong becomes a magical city of light and dark, shadow and substance, crowds and isolation. The experimental nature of Fan Ho’s vision is immediately apparent in these photographs
