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.

James Pomerantz : Agua Sagrada (Photography)

“After hanging out for a little while, I noticed how people were drawn to the light and how they would interact with it. Some were clearly anxious about swimming in the dark water and looking for the security of the sun. Others seemed to seek out its warmth. Some would stare up into the light. Others would float face down, peering into water.” James Pomerantz

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.

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.

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

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.

Hiroshi Sugimoto : ‘Drive Ins’ (Photography)

The New York-based Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto produces photographs in series. He meticulously selects and then researches subjects, returning to the same few time and time again, taking pictures and then producing technically immaculate black and white prints of absorbing clarity and density. Since the late 1970s, Sugimoto has worked on several series that have together encompassed seascapes, dioramas, movie theatres and drive-ins.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Stephan Tillmans : Light Point Systems (Photography)

The dot orders are television screens, which were photographed at the moment of being turned off. The shutter button is pressed when the power switch on the television is pressed. The camera captures the image in the moment when it breaks down. The television picture is no longer visible – instead, a structure of light, which in a fraction of a second, disappears in the picture tube and collapses.

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

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.

Renato D’Agostin : Tokyo Untitled (Photography Series)

Longing to break the unconscious, immediate and easy processes of the known and the predictable, I traveled to Tokyo for the first time. I was immediately struck by a sense of disorientation and an inability to quickly locate my own position within the geography of the city.
