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.

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.

Valéry Lippens : ‘Haecceity’ Series (Photography)

Valery Lippens strives to create in his series ‘Haecceity’ a more accurate portrayal of our perceptions. Lippens captures commuters in their turbulent spontaneity rushing from one train to the next and creates one large image comprised of approximately 350 miniature photos.

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.

Andreas Gefeller : The Japan Series (Photography)

Gefeller takes at least two shots of utility poles vertically from below. In the subsequent digital composite the poles disappear, and the innumerable cables and transformers are converted into an abstract composition against a monochrome background. The absence of points of reference and orientation in these works opens up a new perspective on familiar situations.

Saul Leiter : Photography (Early Colour)

“Leiter’s sensibility placed him outside the visceral confrontations with urban anxiety associated with photographers such as Robert Frank or William Klein. Instead, for him the camera provided an alternate way of seeing, of framing events and interpreting reality. He sought out moments of quiet humanity in the Manhatten maelstrom, forging a unique urban pastoral from the most unlikely of circumstances.”

Barbara Kasten : Studio Constructs (Photographs)

“The process of capturing an image through a camera lens requires “an object.” This body of work addresses the representational value of that object. By photographing a transparent plane, and its shadow, familiar association with life experience is eliminated. The result is a “concrete photographic” abstract image.”[bk]

Charlotte Thoemmes : Photography Series

Natural environments and urbanized areas inspire my images, in which I present questions that range from identity to mortality. In my imagery, I attempt to explore places where a dialog emerges between the inner world of people and the environment
