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.

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.”

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.

Astrid Kruse Jensen : Photography

Astrid Kruse Jensen’s photographs are conceived through the encounter between dark and light – in the twilight zone between the illuminated and the hidden, between the real and the imaginary. They are taken at dusk and at night because she mostly uses the ambient light sources on locations.

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

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

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.

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.

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.”

Pavel Odvody : ‘Still Lives & Compositions’ (Photography)

This is a truly phenomenal, extremely unusual collection of novel picture themes that have barely anything to do with the uncountable daily offerings of photographed pictures in the media, taken in public places or at art museums. So Pavel Odvody’s picture world may appear strange to us at first sight… we are unable to associate a visual experience with it, with only a few capable of sharing his perspective.

“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

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.

Yasuhiro Ogawa : Photography Series

Born in 1968, Kanagawa, Japan. Started to take pictures at the age of 24, influenced by the work of Sebastiao Salgado. The first exhibition titled “Futashika-na-Chizu” was held at Ginza Kodak Photo-salon, Tokyo, in 1999. Since then, his work has appeared in many publications in Japan. This year Ogawa won the prestigious Newcomer’s Award from the Photographic Society of Japan for his Slowly Down the River work, from which a couple of these come. The work centers around the construction of the Three Gorges Dam in China, and the profound changes wrought by this massive development.

Matthieu Gafsou : Photography Series

Photography always implies a relationship between a body – the man with a camera – and the world. Even today, photographic gear remains heavy and cumbersome, an impediment. Landscapes, too, are related to the body: we are wandering somewhere about the world when suddenly, without any perceivable signal, reality emerges with force and becomes an image.

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.”
