Linus Lohoff : ‘Subjects’ (Photography Series)

“Things from the beach at the beach, where the light makes them look like sculptures or installations. This light gives them importance and beauty even if they’re just small buildings of human creation.”

Arthur Ou : ‘Test Screens’ Series (Photo-Media)

Arthur Ou is a Taiwanese artist currently living and working in New York. 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. He is showing a selection from his Test Screens series of innovative landscape photo-media works in which he intentionally interferes with the direct view by incorporating a layer of ‘drawing’ or ‘painting’ with light into the photographic space.

Marc Marquez : “LOT” Series (Photography)

When one considers these photographs by Marc Marquez, it’s as if one’s skin has been removed. We see very sparse rooms, we not only see, but we can almost feel the coldness and the roughness of such places. These images were taken in the housing estates of the former GDR, where such blocks were provided under an “Urban Redevelopment Plan” and were scheduled for demolition in 2009.

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.

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.

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

“When I originally took up photography it was to photograph nature in the style of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. Even though most of my work has moved in a different direction, I continue to love to immerse myself in the landscape, trying to push the envelope to go beyond the beautiful.” Linda Butler

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.

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.

Shinichi Maruyama : “Kusho” Series (Photography)

The ‘Kusho’ series consists of twenty-three large scale colour photographs that represent the interplay of black ink and water, both in midair and on white surfaces. The phenomenon that Maruyama captures of the two liquids colliding a millisecond before they merge is the result of various actions and devices.

“That tragic, poor, transitional element that is found all over Latin America is encapsulated in those images… The act of binding, of shipping and storing, bespeaks a defenseless class that exists in each of those countries, where there are people who have never owned property and whose only option for conserving what little they have is to bind and enclose it before moving on elsewhere.” – fernell franco

Isa Leshko : ‘Thrills & Chills’ Photography Series

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.

Tom McLaughlan : Photography Series

Paul Klee said “a line is a dot that went for a walk”. And one day – while out walking in Valencia, Berlin and Zurich – the line came across shadow, sky and negative space. These photographs explore the relationship between the four and were inspired directly by the work and friendship of: Gianni Galassi.

roB_meL – Photography Series (Architectural)

Personally, I think that contemporary architecture has given rise to a new vision of dialogues in urbanism, a sort of “RE – interpretation” of its artistic rhythm of progress – whether it be deconstructionist, brutalist, fantastic or expressionist or clearly visionary or even flowing and introverted.

Jeff Gaydash : Photography Series

Captivated by the chemical process before me I felt an immediate sense of empowerment. I ended up majoring in photography in college and studied the work of master photographers Minor White, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Paul Strand and Imogen Cunningham, among others.

Hiroshi Watanabe : Photography Series

I go to places that captivate and intrigue me. I am interested in what humans do. I seek to capture people, traditions, and locales that first and foremost are of personal interest. I immerse myself with information on the places prior to leaving, but I try to avoid firm, preconceived ideas.

Marc Riboud : Photography Series

French photographer Marc Riboud isn’t easily categorized, because he’s never specialized in any particular area of photography. There are some recurring themes and stylistic idiosyncrasies in his work, but the pictures fall easily into half a dozen different modes of photography. He describes himself as a “shy” photographer, saying “I was torn between the fear of getting too close to people and another force that egged me on to get a closer look.”

“The mass media bombard us with images of blood and tears, “he states.” It’s high time we showed interest in beauty and aesthetics, not just in wars and catastrophes.

Catching places, cities, glances: Ronan Guillou translates his pleasure and desire for keeping traces of them during his walks. Cities, and the people who animate them, are the basis of his humanistic approach. Aside from his commercial campaigns, Guillou’s personal work records moments of ordinary life, where men and women are photographed during their daily routines in urban landscapes.

Ronan Guillou : Colour Photography ( Series 2 )

If his photographs suggest a poetic vision of the ordinary and call upon the imagination of each and every one of us, they also question us on the temporality [material matter] of places, reveal their nearly organic power as well as their fragility, and examine man’s relationship with the constructed universe.

Takuma Nakahira: For a Language to Come (Photography Series)
