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.

Jehsong Baak : Photography Series

Baak freely acknowledges that Robert Frank and Joself Koudelka have served as inspirational mentors in his work. The parallels in the lives of these three photographers are striking as are the basic themes of their work. Yet Baak maintains his own visual language and context that is complex and poignant, creating a personal path so that his work serves as confessions and insights into his persona and life.

Yutaka Takanashi : Photography Series

Takanashi was one of the founding members of the short-lived avant-garde group Provoke, known for their grainy, blurry black and white aesthetic, and those pictures, like that of the other “Provoke” artists of the time, were grainy in the extreme, poised between carefree and careless, and without any focus.

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

Takahira wrote that “Extremely grainy images and intentionally unfocussed photographs in particular, have already become mere decoration.” I can think of many examples where that might be true, but Nakahira’s case, it most definitely is not.
