Alexander Rosenkranz: CITY CUT OFF

Alexander Rosenkranz: CITY CUT OFF

One can think of the urban environment in its various stages of building and tearing down as an interlocking mechanism similar to a pocket watch or Rubik’s cube. Each part of the city, its buildings, its billboards, and its many pieces interlock to provide traction for the cogs of the watch to continue its movements. […]

Massimiliano Tommaso Rezza PSALM

Massimiliano Tommaso Rezza PSALM

I think of Massimiliano Tommaso Rezza’s process as being a dislocated type of photographic practice. His work functions on the viewer being able to unlock parts of his cryptic use of images, but never all. One is asked to recognize inherent photographic themes and usages, but it is very difficult to place an exacting context […]

Eiko Grimberg RÜCKSCHAUFEHLER

  Eiko Grimberg is concerned with two pivotal subject matters within his work. The first is the way in which we interpret the historical. The second is the way in which we interpret architecture. In his work, these two aspects overlap and produce an air of uncertainty in which dogmatic and ideological thinking is critiqued […]

Gerry Johansson Esker

What looks benign or without consequence can be illusory. What lies below the surface can provide a catalog of answers.     The distant past as a concept is very hard to photograph. In thicket and open clearing, in water and desert, it is difficult to unlock the image of ancient history. We can only […]

Eiji Ohashi: Roadside Lights Seasons: Winter

Eiji Ohashi’s Roadside Lights Seasons: Winter is deceptively simple in its approach. The main theme of the book considers a constant in the Japanese landscape through the repeated photographic investigation of its roadside vending machines. Though beautifully photographed, the book details one type of subject matter across the beautiful backdrop of Japan at night. It […]

Marco Marzocchi: How To Destroy Everything

What a strange process it is to sift through the remains of an anonymous person’s photographic trail. You look for clues of authorship, economic circumstance, and their loved ones who emerge through their images in repetition. You try to stitch together a narrative when there may very well not be one to consider. This is […]

Faces of Time

In 1929, German photographer August Sander (1876-1964) published a book with sixty photographs portraying the people of his time. In genre terms, one might call these photographs portraits which either show individual persons, or several of them set in the same environment. It is clear that each person is aware that he / she is…

She began at this time to describe landscape as if anything she saw was a natural phenomenon, a thing existent in itself, and she found it, this exercise, very interesting and it finally led her to the later series of Operas and Plays. I am trying to be as commonplace as I can be, she used to…

Media-logged journey– pleasures and asceticism of transcendence

Media-logged journey as transcendence of “the imminent conditions of consciousness” and the naïve art-phenomenology of “reality” Đukić versus Altamira and On Kawara Assuming reality is real, its media-trace/manifestation are also real. The significance of the media-projected reality uncovers itself through strengthening the awareness of necessity to transcend the realistic ideology frame. It is exactly this…

Constructing an identity through the family archive / Archon of the family heritage

Where does the need to build an identity by reconstructing a family history come from? What is it in the past that is so strong that we could possibly rely on in an attempt to define our own existence?  Are we looking for an explanation? For reasons? Justification?  Or are we simply denying our own…

Davor Sanvincenti’s Fringe Oscillations

Davor takes interest in the fringe fields of light. What does he find in them? Fringe frequencies? But there is no such a thing, cause frequencies always move on, metamorphosing from visible to invisible, from light to sound and, further down to the oscillations that make up the universe. The given possibilities of our perceptions…
