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.

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.

Boris Savelev : Photography Series

It’s often said that the camera never lies, it does not always tell us the most meaningful of truths and the task of the fine art photographer is to endow the raw image with further layers of meaning.

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.

Trent Parke : ‘Dream/Life & Beyond’ Series (Photography)

Trent Parke is considered one of the most innovative photographers of his generation. His exhibition Dream/Life and Beyond is an ongoing document of the streets of Sydney which began when, at the age of 20, he moved from his hometown of Newcastle to live in the capital of New South Wales. In trying to deal with his sense of loneliness at the time, he took to the streets with his Leica camera and began to create a picture of Sydney unlike any other we are accustomed to seeing. As he says of his practice: “I’m always trying to channel personal emotions into my work.

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.

Christiane Feser : ‘Latent Constructs’ Series (Photography)

The series of photographs “Latent Constructs” can be ordered within the tradition of abstract photography. This genre of photography deals with the basic principles of the medium itself: the play of light and shadow, the materiality of the paper, lens distortions, chromatic aberrations as well as visual traces of the aging process of the supporting material all play a role.

Lee Friedlander : Photography (Sequence 1)

Friedlander began photographing the American social landscape in 1948. His photographs bring to the surface the juxtapositions of everyday life that comprise our modern world. Beyond the vigorous outward eye he turns to the world around him, Lee is also recognized for his investigation of the self.

Lee Friedlander : Photography (Sequence 2)

Friedlander often included oblique references to himself by including his own reflection or shadow in the photographs. – “I suspect it’s for one’s self-interest that one looks at one’s surroundings and one’s self. This search is personally borne and is indeed my reason and motive for making photographs.”

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
