Abendlied
evening song
Birthe Piontek
Gnomic Book (15. Mai 2019)
rating
Zusammenfassung: "Abendlied (Evening Song) examines how individual relationships in a family are shaped by the processes of growing up, aging, and eventually letting go. It reveals how this circle of life not only contributes to an ebb and flow of connection, but also to a feeling of separation within the family bond. The project aims to look at the elements that create a family: not just the genes, but also the stories and secrets, as well as the objects that we surround ourselves with. The things that have always been there, are handed down, and make up the tangible and visible material that turns houses into homes. In this series they become poetic stand-ins for underlying emotions and the "unspeakable" that is unique to each family. Although a personal inquiry, Abendlied reflects on the broader psychological components of identity, heritage and belonging. How are we shaped by the place we call home? What happens to us when we lose this foundational base? How does it continue to live inside of us, even if it ceases to exist in its physical form? Can it be replaced? These questions are an essential byproduct of our human condition, and even though individual answers may vary, we are undeniably united as humans by the fact that the place we come from leaves a fundamental imprint on us."--Publisher website (Gnomic Book).

Antibodies
Antoine D'Agata
Antoine d' Agata
Prestel (2014)
rating
Zusammenfassung: This monumental collection of d'Agata's controversial work is a cult classic and companion to one of the most talked-about photography exhibitions of the past decade, available now for the first time in English. Containing striking images of people living on the fringes of society, Antibodies is a challenging and captivating collection from one of the most renowned photographers working today. Antoine d'Agata has traveled the world's darkest corners collecting images of prostitutes, addicts, war-torn communities, and the homeless. A nomad himself, d'Agata tackles subjects often left untouched, unnoticed, or ignored. Frequently compared to his mentors Nan Goldin and Larry Clark, d'Agata's work, for all its grim and occasionally terrifying realism, bears the hallmarks of timeless photographs. This volume features images from a number of d'Agata's series, interspersed with short texts as well as essays and commentary. Antibodies was awarded the 2013 Arles Book Prize, and is certain to become one of the most sought-after photography books of the year.

Ballenesque
Roger Ballen : a Retrospective
Roger Ballen
Thames & Hudson (2017)
rating
Zusammenfassung: Roger Ballen is best known for his psychologically powerful and intricately layered images that exist in a space between painting, drawing, installation, and photography. Ballenesque is the first comprehensive retrospective of his work.Separated into four parts, Ballenesque takes readers on a chronological journey through Ballen's entire oeuvre, including both iconic images and previously unpublished works. Part I explores Ballen's formative artistic influences and his later rediscovery of boyhood through photography, culminating in his first published monograph, Boyhood, in 1979. Part II charts the period between 1980 and 2000, during which time he released his seminal monograph Outland. Part III covers the years 2000-2013, when Ballen achieved global recognition and his work began to veer away from portraiture altogether. Finally, in Part IV, Ballen reflects on his career.With more than 300 photographs and an introduction by Robert JC Young, this book provides both a new way of seeing Ballen's work for those who already follow his career and a comprehensive introduction for those encountering his striking photographs for the first time.

Erwin Olaf
Volume II
Francis Hodgson
Aperture (2014)
rating
Zusammenfassung: Erwin Olaf's approach to storytelling is uniquely evocative and enticingly ambiguous. Critic Francis Hodgson writes of Olaf's images, "They lead us to a "Stimmung" (a sense of atmosphere) which is broad enough to repay many second readings of the pictures and so keep us viewers interested." In this presentation of his most recent work, Olaf expands on his established, highly polished and stylized color studio images to include a series drawn from his sculptural video installation, "Keyholes"; a group of black-and-white images he has exhibited as carbon prints; and photographs created on location in Berlin--a departure from the constructed mises-en-scène of earlier work produced in his Amsterdam studio. "Erwin Olaf: Volume II" showcases the artist at the height of his powers, as an artisan of atmosphere and a craftsman who uses high polish to both perverse and seductive effect.Erwin Olaf (born 1959) is a Dutch photographer known for his highly stylized, daring and often provocative work addressing social issues and taboos. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Johannes Vermeer Award (2011), a Lucie Award (2008) and Photographer of the Year in the International Color Awards (2006). His work is shown in museums and galleries around the world. Olaf also received a commission to design the new national side of the Dutch Euro, launched in 2013.

Images of the Spirit
Graciela Iturbide
Aperture Foundation (1996)
rating
Zusammenfassung: Graciela Iturbide makes subtle yet powerful photographs that blend evocative scenes, primarily the cultures of her native Mexico, with her own deeply personal vision. Images of the Spirit, the first major publication of Iturbide's photography, demonstrates how in her dreamlike encounters with what may first appear to be ordinary, she perceives the surreal and the marvelous. Iturbide's work is a mixture of history, lyricism, and portraiture, sometimes informed by the art of Mexico's photographic master, Manuel Álvarez Bravo. In Iturbide's photographs, she combines the story of a culture in transition with issues of identity, diversity, and selfhood.As the poet and critic Roberto Tejada points out in his Preface, "Sidelong Mirrors and Invisible Masks," Iturbide's photographs "underline time and again the rift between belonging and citizenship, rendered often against a backdrop of Mexican icons or heroes--be it the frail displacement of a rural campesino in Puebla, or the triumph of locals in East Los Angeles." Tejada who has lived in Mexico for the last ten years, provides a trenchant illumination of this Mexican photographer's use of her country's lore and stories of conquest, it's pre-Hispanic past, its indigenous visual vocabulary, and its centuries of tradition and ceremony, often infused with Christian iconography.Writer and scholar Alfredo López Austin is an anthropologist studying Latin American cultures. In his series of letters to Iturbide, which form the poetic Epilogue to Images of the Spirit, he envisions her "on a promontory set over the world in such a way as to see from one ocean to the other, to approach the vault of heaven and to surpass the artificial boundaries." Reflecting on the breadth of her expansive, insightful mind while invoking many narrative voices and identities drawn from Mexico's richly vibrant mythologies, López Austin shows us how Iturbide's photographs mirror the artist herself. Through his writing Iturbide is revealed as observer, searcher, affirmer.Images of the Spirit is produced at the highest level of the printer's art, enhancing the resonance of Iturbide's imagery, and the luminosity of her vision. Iturbide's compassion and dedication to her native land and its people make Images of the Spirit a power evocation of the underlying forces inspiring the complex, diverse, and ever-changing cultural landscape of Mexico.This aperture publication accompanies a traveling exhibition that opened at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Peter Lindbergh
the unknown : the Chinese episode
Peter Lindbergh
Schirmer/Mosel (2011)
rating
Zusammenfassung: Internationally-known German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh revolutionized his métier with iconic images of Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz and other models. His photographs sought to capture the personality, character, and identity of the models--and not just the glitter and glamour. His new project represents another innovative chapter in the field of fashion photography. The Unknown is a photographic "serial novel" of fashion shootings set against the backdrop of a fictitious landing of beings from outer space. The extra terrestrial theme is elegantly augmented with elements of Hollywood glamour from the fifties, the German cinema of Fritz Lang, and futuristic scenarios of science fiction movies--much in the manner of Orson Welles or Ridley Scott. Lindbergh has now joined these photographs together for the first time to form a large-scale pictorial narrative for the exhibition in Beijing.

Zusammenfassung: Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography.Saul Leiter (b. 1923) is one of those photographers who seek neither fame nor commercial success, despite their talent for imagemaking. Born in Pittsburgh, he spent the 1940s and 1950s in New York, in an intensely creative environment where ideas from Europe and America came together and intermingled. There he encountered Rothko and the Abstract Expressionists, and discovered street photography and the work of Cartier-Bresson. His mastery of color is displayed in unconventional cityscapes in which reflections, transparency, complex framing and mirroring effects are married to a very personal printing style, creating a unique urban view.

Saul Leiter
In My Room
Robert Benton
Steidl (1. Juni 2018)
rating
Zusammenfassung: The fruit of fantastic recent discoveries from Saul Leiter's vast archive, In My Room provides an in-depth study of the nude, through intimate photographs of the women Leiter knew. Showing deeply personal interior spaces, often illuminated by the lush natural light of the artist's studio in New York City's East Village, these black-and-white images reveal a unique type of collaboration between Leiter and his subjects. In the 1970s Leiter planned to make a book of nudes, but the project was never realized in his lifetime. Now, we get a first-time look at this body of work, which was begun on Leiter's arrival in New York in 1946 and honed over the next two decades. Leiter, who was also a painter, allows abstract elements into the photographs and often shows the influence of his favorite artists, including Bonnard, Vuillard and Matisse. Leiter, who painted and took pictures prolifically up to his death, worked in relative obscurity until he entered his eighties. He preferred to be left alone, and resisted any type of explanation or analysis of his work. With In My Room, Leiter ushers viewers into his private world while retaining his strong sense of mystery. Saul Leiter was born in Pittsburgh in 1923. In 1946 he moved to New York to become a painter, but was encouraged to pursue photography by the photographic experimentation and influence of his friend, the Abstract Expressionist Richard Pousette-Dart. Leiter subsequently enjoyed a successful career as a fashion photographer spanning three decades, and his images were published in magazines such as Esquire, Harper's Bazaar, Elle and British Vogue. His work is held in many prestigious private and public collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Leiter died in November 2013.

Singen - うたたね
Rinko Kawauchi - 川内倫子
Little More (1. Oktober 2001)
rating
Zusammenfassung: Rinko Kawauchi macht einfache, lyrische Fotos, die so frisch und ungewöhnlich sind, dass sie schwer zu beschreiben oder zu klassifizieren sind. Seine Bilder dokumentieren alltägliche Dinge, obwohl sie nicht als Dokumentarfilme bezeichnet werden können. Sie sind fast umwerfend und scheinen grundlegende psychologische Aspekte des modernen Lebens zu erfassen. Utatane bedeutet Nickerchen, was auf die Idee eines Traumzustands hindeutet. Jedes Bild im Buch kann als Momentaufnahme eines Films über einen Traum betrachtet werden. Die Anwesenheit einer großen Anzahl von Tieren - Insekten, Möwen, Karpfen, Kaninchen - könnte sich auf eine Art Freudsche Interpretation beziehen. Kawauchi schafft eine mächtige Metapher für das Leben in zeitgenössischen Metropolen, die für die meisten Menschen offenbar komfortabler ist - zumindest finanziell. Dies ist kein Albtraum: Es passiert nichts Unangemessenes, aber es gibt etwas, das uns aus diesem verwirrten, deprimierenden und ängstlichen Nickerchenzustand herausholt.

Street Photography aus sieben Jahrzehnten
Sabine Schnakenberg
Kehrer (2018)
rating
Zusammenfassung: Flüchtig geflasht, akribisch beobachtet, rauschhaft energiegebündelt, schockgefroren, voyeuristisch aufgeladen, drastisch überspitzt, romantisch wild, tragisch, komisch, grüblerisch abwesend und seltsam erschreckend - die Strasse, der ”urban space“, als direkt und alltäglich erfahrbarer städtischer Lebensraum ist eines der mit Abstand schillerndsten und facettenreichsten fotografischen Sujets. Die im Rahmen der Triennale der Photographie stattfindende Ausstellung Street. Life. Photography umfasst 52 fotografische Positionen mit rund 350 Arbeiten aus der Sammlung F. C. Gundlach und der Sammlung Falckenberg sowie zahlreichen Leihgaben und Kooperationen mit zeitgenössischen Künstlern. Sie gliedert sich in sieben thematische Gruppen: Street Life, Crashes, Public Transfer, Urban Space, Lines and Signs, Anonymity und Alienation. Emanzipiert von Henri Cartier-Bressons ”decisive moment“, drängen neue erzählerische Tendenzen der Street Photography die Konzentration auf fotografische Zeugenschaft beiseite. Fotografiehistorische Ikonen und aktuelle Positionen laden sich gegenseitig auf und geben in einem bewusst subjektiv gewählten Überblick Auskunft über gesellschaftliche Phänomene, wie sie sich innerhalb der letzten 70 Jahre fotografisch auf der Strasse manifestierten.

The Photograph as Contemporary Art
Charlotte Cotton
Thames & Hudson (2014)
rating
Zusammenfassung: In the 21st century photography has come of age as a contemporary art form. Nearly two centuries after photographic technology was first invented, the art world has fully embraced it as a legitimate medium, equal in status to painting and sculpture. This book provides an introduction to contemporary art-photography, identifying its most important features and themes and celebrating its exciting pluralism through an overview of its most important and innovative practitioners. The work of nearly 250 photographers is reproduced, from established artists such as Isa Genzken, Jeff Wall, Sophie Calle, Thomas Demand, Nan Goldin, and Sherrie Levine to emerging talents such Walead Beshty, Jason Evans, Lucas Blalock, Sara VanDerBeek, and Viviane Sassen.This new edition brings the story of contemporary art photography up to date with a revised introduction outlining the evolution of photography from documentary tool to art form, and an updated final chapter focusing on the younger generation of artists who emphasize the technical and material properties of photography, employ it as part of a wider pan-media practice, or respond to evolving new modes of dissemination in the digital age.
