Mårten Lange : “Anomalies” Series (Photography)

Shot in Sweden and Japan, the images in Anomalies are deliberately de-contextualized. Lange notes. “It’s not about a place. If you leave the place out of the story, the images can take on different weights. Places are really loud.” The objects that populate Anomalies, on the other hand, are suffused with a deep, seemingly impenetrable silence.

Awoiska van der Molen : Photography Series

The cities visited by Awoiska van der Molen are not usually part of the regular city trip assortment. Not that it really matters: we would be spared the obligatory sights anyway, and if, like so many tourists, couleur locale is what you’re looking for, you may be better off looking elsewhere.

Jungjin Lee : ‘Wind’ Series (Photography)

Lee’s work is unique in the world of photography. She does not mechanically reproduce multiples, but creates each work by hand. She brushes liquid emulsion onto large sheets of handmade rice and mulberry papers. Her brushstrokes sweep across the soft texture of the paper and capture the photographic image, revealing a painter’s sensibility in a gestural dance.

He is an Associate Professor of Photography at Parsons New School for Design in New York and is exhibiting in Sydney for the first time.

Ali Chraibi : ‘Downtown Memories’ (Photography)

‘Downtown Memories’ series captures classically un-photogenic neighborhoods of Marrakesh through nicked and dirty car windows panes. Shooting encased in a moving vehicle, Chraibi managed to achieve well-composed, satisfyingly grainy images specked with points of light. He shows the true nature of the constructions of a city by taking us on a journey into a universal city. The shapes and shades of black & white structures seem familiar, but the vision is blurred and distant, through rain and fragmented light.

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

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.

Bruno Mercier : ‘Fences’ Series (Photography)

In all of my photographic work, there is a certain prevailing theme which has something to do with light, movement, and atmosphere. I do love playing with rhythms, light, and lines. I often place landscape in the foreground, inside light, and compose space from the running lines.

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.

Stephen Inggs : Photography Series

These works consists of powerful yet delicate large scale photographs, each one hand-coated with silver gelatin emulsion onto 100% cotton mould-made paper, using traditional techniques. The handmade, tactile and physical aspects of this process are used to underline the references to history, transience and the overlooked object. Each piece is therefore a unique and original work of art.

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.

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.

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.

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

Michael Levin : Photography

Even though Michael Levin was born land-locked under a vast Prairie sky in Winnipeg, Canada, it was not until he moved out to Vancouver that he became engaged with the potential for landscape photography. Perhaps it was simply his need to better understand his new surroundings – water, water, everywhere – that provoked his deeper interest in the way landscape can shape photographic reality.

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.

Sven Fennema : ‘Paris … the modern way’ (Photography)

Markus Hartel : ‘Subway Motion Study’ (Street Photography)

“What is street photography? A reflection of every day life – real, unaltered impressions of public places, places that everybody visits every day, the street where you live, the parking lot of your favorite grocery store, the subway. Street photographers document the truth – take candid pictures of things that you don’t notice in your daily grind. This involves attention to detail… attention to scenes, moments that you only recognize subconsciously.

Jan Rufelt : ‘Plastic Wrapped’ Series (Photography)

“I’m an educated artist painter who early became interested in photography. From the beginning using photography as “notebook pictures” to remember a certain place or thing. When digital photography became more common, I started manipulating and playing with pictures in the computer, often combining painting and digital picture on paper and canvas. Today, I try out different cameras, both digital and lately old analogue cameras to find out how I can use the pictures they take.” – Jan Rufelt

Any series – are, in one way or another, the reflection of the author’s personal experience. For the past couple of months I very rarely left the house, when I did it was only at night when I went to work or in case of an urgent matter. I did not answer the phone and rarely checked my e-mails. Most of the time was spent attempting to answer the questions which had accumulated over the past years.

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.”
