Band, 1. Danke Mebrur und Ali! Kommt vorbei! Einer Schicht, der ich auf einem instinktivem und unverstelltem Niveau begegnen kann. After the Russo-Georgian War of , one hundred and twenty-eight thousand Georgians were forced to leave South Ossetia, which had become a puppet state dependent on Russia. Some of them found shelter in a long-term refugee camp on the outskirts of the city of Gori. On a clear day, the buildings of the Ossetian village they were expelled from can be seen from the camp. An unfinished viewing tower. He conferred town rights on it and announced the beginning of an ambitious development programme which would transform it into a luxury resort.
Construction work began in One of the interiors of the Alphabetic Tower. In , the Rustavi 2 Broadcasting Company, which supported the then president of Georgia, Micheil Saakashvili, had a television studio there. The Rustavi 2 editorial department was deserted overnight, becoming a giant trap for birds. Dozens of rock sparrows flew into it through a small opening in the wall.
Once they were trapped inside, a combination of heat and starvation killed them. Geometric figures and models triggering optical illusions, partly created by pupils of the chess school located in the Khyrdalan Heydar Aliyev Centre. The man the centre is named after began his road to authority as an official of the Stalinist secret police organisation, the NKVD.
He was a member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and an opponent of both Gorbachev and the politics of glasnost. In , he became the president of the recently independent Azerbaijan. Visual artist, photographer, author of photobooks. He has had a number of group shows. Eine Archivrecherche. Er lebt und arbeitet als freier Rundfunkautor und Musiker in Berlin. Produktion: Deutschlandfunk Kultur Im Fotolabor werden die Analogien zwischen Alchemie und Fotografie erlebbar.

Sie werden so zu Unikaten. Well as a wise dude said, all things must pass. As it turns out, a couple of the key photographers will be at a private event later this week, as well as the opening of major Bowie exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. Hope to see folks there. Thank you and adieu, fotoblog! The picture taken of him a few days before he died, he looked fine. For this man the very idea of being a star is a vast understatement. Often two or more steps ahead of his audience, Bowie shaped the starmaker machinery as much as it it shaped him.
But plenty of brilliant photographers were on hand to try. The organizers make no bones this is a commercial venture: All prints are for sale from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars and the Morrison Hotel Gallery ships internationally. Collectively these images show this restless chameleon as a complex, charismatic, and deeply creative soul. Now a starman waiting in the sky. Seven years ago, Minneapolis-based photographer Andy Richter decided that his devotion to the practice of yoga was worth a trip to India, where he could explore the wellspring of the ancient physical and philosophical discipline both widely and beneath the surface.
A young devotee blesses pilgrims along the Govardhan parikrama, where Krishna is believed to have spent much of his youth. Yogananda, who passed away in , claimed that the secret to longevity is fasting. Yet Richter adds that the ultimate purpose of the project—and the spiritual journey—is one of self-discovery.
While they can be inspirational, we can all be where they are—if we do the work. We all have these capacities as human beings. A yogi performs panch agni tapas, the five-fire-austerity, symbolically sacrificing himself to the fire in meditation during the Kumbh Mela in Ujjain. Corpse pose at Yogi Yoga in Beijing.
Chinese people have engaged in mind-body practices for centuries, yet the state rejects yoga as a method of personal realization, lest it undermine the collective order. Alexander E. Artist Andy Warhol sought out and reveled in the reflection of beautiful people throughout his life, perhaps in reaction to his mixed feelings about his own appearance. Warhol made a habit of incorporating photographs within grander works of art, most famously in his Marilyn series—the print above is front-and-center in the show, and similar large-scale silkscreen treatments of Jackie O, Ingrid Bergman, and others fill the front room of the Art Center gallery.
Like many a fiscal-minded artist, Warhol courted wealthy patrons as subjects—such as art collector and philanthropist Anne Bass above left , former wife of billionaire oilman Sid Bass—and portrayed them flatteringly, even in small Polaroid prints. The Warhol show reflects a time when young and glamorous people were beautiful, even if that beauty was fleeting. For the past seven years, Nu Som has been shooting nude self-portraits in public places, often at spectacular and oft-visited sites such as the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. A New York—based portrait and fashion photographer aka Sandrine Lee , wife of bassist Will Lee , she brings a poetic sensibility to her self-portraits, which double as landscapes of her favorite places.
Oddly enough, I had never thought of shooting self-portraits. To me, master Cindy Sherman and a few others had explored every artistic possibility, and the only alternative was self-centered iPhone selfies that were already flooding social media, something I had no interest in participating in. But one morning, the light coming into my bedroom window was so beautiful that I had to capture it. I was alone, I grabbed my tripod, set the timer and slipped into the frame for the exact result I envisioned—it was an epiphany. I could use my own body to be the human subject in any scene.
I started exploring with different light sources, compositions, and situations. And when I entered a public place, where people normally roamed and could appear at any point, the thrill of it took over. I was terrified and therefore exhilarated once I got the shot—it was such an adrenaline rush, I was hooked! You write that the trick is to be alone in these places. How do you manage that? I study the place ahead of time and waits for my moment.
So in the desert I shoot for the hottest day out there; in cities rainy nasty days are my friends, or the middle of the night …. So you mount the camera and set the timer to ten seconds … hmm … how fast can you undress? Well I undress just before pressing the shutter that starts the ten-second timer, so that time is all for the run and pose. Have you ever been arrested while doing this work? Definitely thanking my lucky stars on this one! Yes I am totally hooked and I already have dozens of new photographs since we finalized the layout for the book.
I will keep capturing these images for at least the next few years. But I also have other projects that I am working on, so I may show a very different type of work before releasing Part Two. What would you like the viewer to take away from seeing these photographs? I hope that it helps people understand that if you are afraid to do something you should do it. And that once you do, you will come out stronger on the other side. I also hope it will highlight why we need to keep some privacy in our lives and should stop sharing every moment, every meal, every meeting with the rest of our virtual friends.
Start living for living again—not just sharing. These experiences can only happen if I keep to myself and find a moment alone. Privacy has become a precious commodity. Finally, I hope it helps people see even more beauty in the world around them and make them care for it as much as they possibly can. The late German-American artist Josef Albers is best known for his modernist, minimalist abstract paintings blending sharp geometric patterns with intense colors.
Although Albers did not exhibit his photographs formally or create a great deal of large-scale prints, he was a prolific photographer during his frequent trips to Mexico. Albers often studied and photographed such patterns from dozens of different angles, later incorporating them into his abstracted paintings. Guggenheim Foundation, Trained as an architect, photographer Jeffrey Milstein started shooting cityscapes from above as a young pilot in his native Los Angeles, and his large-scale aerial photographs reflect his sense of mechanized urban order. For one thing, he gets in as close as possible.
Milstein also has an uncanny gift for composition, as in these shots of planes in Newark and replica cars in Long Beach, CA. Even leaning out from above, Milstein manages to render huge cityscapes as orderly abstractions, colorful renderings of unintended art. Hello photo world: Greetings from NYC.
This American photographer has made an effort to get us all off the couch and out into the natural world, vis-a-vis inspirational naturalists and scientists who measure ways we are affected by nature, and vice versa. Foglia presents views of human-organic coexistence — such as the aerial shot above of a hotel in Singapore, with its symbiosis between plants and urban architecture.
The above field photograph by Foglia reveals the outer extremes of human exploration as well as the spectacular beauty of glaciers, even as they melt. Foglia depicts scientists whose work faces its own endangerment, in the form of budget cuts and censorship by the Trump administration. Other portrait subjects, such as the au natural gentleman below, revel in their pristine environs with gleeful abandon. January flew by in an instant, and so my month of blissful guest-blogging for the Hatje Cantz fotoblog has come to an end… Thanks a lot for the invitation!

The exhibition is accompanied by a framework program, e. Mai ! It was accidental. A while after dropping out of my Science degree, I started a course in Sound Engineering. One of the modules was Photography. The tutor, Terri, regcognised that I have a good eye and encouraged me to build a portfolio and apply for college. I enjoy the idea of bringing people together in an informal and friendly environment to look at work and share their thoughts. That it saved my life is quite a big statement, but in hindsight, when I reflect on how my life was going, there is a certain truth to her observation.
This work has yet to be shown in Ireland. Last but not least, stay curious. The photobook is, of course, one of greatest ways in which to show ones work. I love the tactile nature of leafing through the pages of a photobook and letting the story unfold. One can do this at their own pace and simply enjoy it. There is a beauty in this way of discovering work that is both personal and unique to the medium of photography.
Now with so many interesting photobooks both published and self published being made over the last few years, there is an influx of wonderful ideas and different ways of telling stories in an ever increasing amount of amazing books. They have a wonderful intelligence to them, they are nicely composed and they provoke compelling questions. At the time I was involved in a visual banter on tumblr [ it's kind of like telephone ] with a group of Irish photographers and I was looking for an image to respond to the previous photograph but was totally stumped.
PiB : Dear Ethna, thanks a lot for this interview! The upcoming talk by Alexander Gehring will take place on January 25th and unfortunately all places have been booked by now. Und so ist es eigentlich bis heute geblieben. Das war mit dann aber doch zu theoretisch. Dann habe ich die Fotografie entdeckt.
Wir arbeiten immer an mehreren Projekten gleichzeitig. Die beiden Fotografen sind durch sogenannte Steuerparadiese in aller Welt gereist. Und auch auf die Gefahr hin als hoffnungslose Romantikerin abgestempelt zu werden: Ja! Diese Bilder gibt es. Und ganz wichtig: Mut. Geld ist leider immer ein wichtiges Thema. Ganz ehrlich? Vorsitzende ich bin. Es passiert fast gar nichts dort. Diesen Zustand versuche ich zu beschreiben. Fotobuch daraus machen. Ich hatte noch 2 Wochen.
Ich zwang mich, es wenigsten ein Mal zu probieren, bevor ich mich abmeldete. Dabei entstand dieses Portrait. In meinen freien Projekten benutze ich eigentlich immer meine Mamiya RB Bild muss ich eine Pause machen, da ich den Film wechseln muss. Die Kamera zwingt mich dazu, mir Zeit zu nehmen.
Ohne die geht nichts. Wenn die Kinder aus dem Haus sind, beginnt das Chaos ;. Worauf ich mich aber genauso freue, ist die Zeit danach im Labor. Da ich meine freien Projekte immer analog fotografiere, verbringe ich viel Zeit im Labor. Das ging runter wie Butter. Open until 8 pm, free admission, drop by! Over the course of a year, and under the guidance of Sibylle Fendt, 11 Ostkreuzschule Seminar participants undertook a photographic journey of discovery. This exhibition brings together the final results. Die Ausstellung wird begleitet von einem Konzert und einer Lesung am Donnerstag, den Januar um 19 Uhr.
The exhibition is accompanied by a concert and reading in German on Thursday, January 25, , 7 pm, please find further details on PiB. Die Vernissage findet am Samstag, den Februar von Uhr statt. The opening reception takes place on Saturday, Feb 17, , 1 — 6 pm. Das Negativ Format war klein und quadratisch, welches man heute gar nicht mehr kennt. Ich hatte keine Ahnung davon, was ein Negativfilm bedeutet.
Meine erste richtige Kamera bekam ich dann von meinem Vater der Klassiker! Alles, zu dem ich eine emotionale Bindung aufgebaut hatte. Wollte Momente auf etwas Ewigem festhalten. Viele Galerien bieten ein umfangreiches Programm von lokalen Fotografen an. Es ist die Frage, was jeder Fotograf daraus macht. Und so werden einige weiterziehen, in eine noch unentdeckte Welt, um sich vielleicht dort zu verwirklichen.
Winifred Chiocchia: Ein gutes Foto spricht mich emotional und intellektuell an. Es hat eine starke Aussage, und diese Botschaft schafft eine intime Beziehung zwischen dem Subjekt, dem Fotografen und dem Betrachter. Da finde ich Robert Morat sehr interessant, und die vielen kleineren Galerien wie bspw. Podbielski Contemporary Anm. Januar mit Alexander Gehring sowie am Neulich fand meine Tochter Kisten voller von mir gemachter Fotos aus meiner Zeit in London, als ich dort noch als Stylistin gearbeitet habe.
Konkret habe ich dann ja erstmal 14 Jahre am Set mit Fotografen gearbeitet, um Werbung, Fashion, Portraits zu fotografieren. Das war eine gute Schule, viel sehen, verstehen, warum dieses Foto eins ist und das andere nur ein Effekt, der nur die ersten 3 min knallt und dann verhallt. Dann wollte ich mehr, habe gemerkt, das Styling nur Mittel zum Zweck war, ein guter aber dennoch irgendwann musste ich weiter. Und ja, ich hatte nachgedacht, selbst Fotografin zu werden, aber irgendwie wollte ich die Szene wechseln, den Point of View und irgendwie das Fotografieren auch als Hobby behalten, ganz unbeschwert.
Und das war gut so. Ich weiss es nicht, aber ich erkenne es, wenn es vor mir ist. Man muss schon sehr viel Erfahrung haben, um der Manipulation zu widerstehen. Oft bleibt mir das zu technisch, es wird dann fast Grafikdesign, zu viel und dann eben auch zu sehr auf den Effekt aus. Ich musste im Rahmen meiner Ausbildung ein Assessment Center absolvieren, da wurden wir auf emotionale Kompetenzen getestet.
Das war das einzige, was mir an der ganzen elendigen Ausbildung irgendwie Spass gemacht hatte. Ich meine, der Typ war da, um uns sozusagen zu rekrutieren und dann das. My favorite two power women. Ul und Annette leben Fotografie. PiB ist unkompliziert, sieht toll aus und ist hochprofessionell und das muss hier mal gesagt sein. Hi, nice to meet you! With an art scene such versatile and vibrant as in Berlin, i was suprised to find out a couple of years ago that none of the existing art platforms put an emphasis on photography — so i decided to change that.
It also includes a little map and public transportation details for each venue, so you can easily find your way around even without a smartphone, imagine! Foto: Nadine Barth. Keine Symmetrie nirgends. Lediglich die Bank darf mittig sein und ist damit wie eine Spinne im Netz der Sichtachsen. The black face and its details become the focal point, forcing the viewer to question their desire to gaze at images of my black figure.
Ein Spiel mit dem Paradoxen. Was kann gleichzeitig dunkel und hell sein? Was blitzeschnell und langsam? I want to reach out to the viewer. My starting point is that we are all essentially the same from the inside out, which X-ray photography demonstrates. My works are metaphors for life in general, to see beyond the obvious.
Think of love: how it often begins with a superficial attraction only to move along the challenging and exciting road of learning to know one another and looking beneath the surface. What is concealed under the surface of that which we present? In this way, X-ray photography is very honest. Diese liegt in der Regel bei 1,50 m Bildmitte. Und wenn der Abstand zwischen den Bildern auch noch gleich ist, kann man so einer Installation gut folgen, sie ist meist kraftvoll und klar und beruhigt den Betrachter. Und die Geschichten verschmelzen zu einem Buch. Foto: Jesus Pastor. Dezember Er machte dann Vergleiche, fotografierte mit zwei Kameras, legte die Ergebnisse nebeneinander.
Nur noch wenige Labore auf der Welt bietet diese Leistung an, in den letzten Jahren wurde Dye Transfer aber wieder vermehrt nachgefragt. Der Presse-Tross zieht weiter, dem charismatischen Meister hinterher, fasziniert. Lange Reihen von holzgerahmten Silbergelatine Prints entlang, wir stoppen vor einem Palmenbild, das als Tapete an der Wand klebt, daneben ein kleines mit dem gleichen Motiv.
Eine Art Reigen der Bilder. Jedem Motiv wurde in der Ausstellung auch eine eigene Art der Rahmung zugeordnet. Manche Prints sind klassisch mit Holz und Abstandsleiste gerahmt, andere wurden kaschiert und mit einer Arcrylschicht veredelt.

Thanks so much for this, my first time at a photography festival that took place spread over three floors of a high rise building: floor And what a view onto the beautiful city of Tel Aviv! The rise of the World Wide Web, the emergence of digital photography, the constant improvement of mobile cameras, and the tendency to broadcast every instant of our lives on social media — all these factors changed photography.
There is this huge and growing stream of billions of images moving through the web in , it is expected that a staggering amount of 1,3 TRILLION images are produced throughout the year, a 3. Millions of people create their personal identities online and photos are a central part of that. They are not supposed to show reality, they are supposed to create reality.
Additionally we see ourselves confronted with more and more computer generated imagery as depicted in movies or computer games. Images are just omnipresent and although we know that they lost their claim to depict reality long ago, I still wonder: can we process that on an emotional level? Not long ago studies showed that Instagram has a negative impact on the mental health of young adults.
Images create feelings, they influence the way we evaluate persons and situations, they even decide the outcome of presidential elections. Images might guide us on our way to make sense of the world around us, but might also mislead us. We have come to a place where we need to completely restart our way of reading images, the context they sit in, as well as the intentions these images were created for.
With Der Greif we are creating works dealing with these topics on different levels. Der Greif is basically an art project looking at photographic images from a meta-layer, analysing contemporary image production, distribution and consumption. We de- and recontextualize images. We change the meaning of a photograph by changing the context it appears in. The following projects are all examples of how we create frameworks for images to circulate within, and how we connect virtual, physical and print spaces that these images are shown in.
In Thread Count , we took the jubilee print-issue 10 of Der Greif as the starting point. This started a chain of invited photographers whose work responded to the previous image shown, and so forth. For CO-OP during Unseen Amsterdam in September this year, Der Greif brought this thread of images into the physical space, making it fully accessible for the audience to interact with. This entire process was monitored on the project website, so images also disappeared online. Un filtered Scenarios was an experiment inquiring the selection process through the dynamics of net-based distribution.
Breaking with the idea of single-person authorship, the project used a chain letter email that invited individuals to participate in the selection of images for an online exhibition by choosing one image from an open call. The email was sent to four initial participants, continuing its path as the invitees were asked to forward the email to two further participants once they made their choice. The chosen images are displayed in an online exhibition. The selection process was anonymized, but participants were asked to fill out a form including standard social categories like gender, age or occupation.
They were also asked to leave a personal note on why they chose the image. In an offline exhibition Fotomuseum Winterthur visualized the data and displayed the personal, possibly structural narratives that unfolded around the process of distributed image selection. In A Process , our first exhibition-project in , over a two-month time frame we transferred our different steps of artistic work—curation, de- and re-contextualization of submitted works —into real space.
Using small prints of submitted images as a starting point, we then moved these images from the initial presentation on a wall onto tables, where we started to re-combine them. The tables became the evidence of the finding and re-contextualization process as pictures and texts were set into different combinations. What are your thoughts on these topics?
Do you agree that we need to develop new approaches to evaluate the images that we see? Or did you make other experiences? I am excited to hear your thoughts and to start a discussion around these topics, if you like. I was invited to Lishui Photofestival in China to give a talk during their symposium, together with fellow speakers Lars Willumeit, Tatyana Franck, Anna Fox and others. But I also got to see some exhibitions. In my last two blog entries, I spoke a lot about my projects and my personal background.

I want to share with you some gems from Paris Photo last week. My interest for photography manifested when I started to study graphic design and later fine arts. The idea was to take images from the screen and put them back onto paper and to experiment with de- and re-contextualization of those images. Today we receive around 10k submissions for each publication. Dealing with this amount of data became highly inefficient for us and so we decided to built our own solution to manage submissions around four years ago. By giving curators, editors and gallerists access to our solution, we found out that our approach could actually solve real problems for both photographers and organizations working with images.
Picter connects photographers and organizations in a new way. Organizations can host their call for entries with Picter. They can review work online, evaluate submissions together in a team and track their entries. Photographers upload their projects, choose from a list of open calls and submit their work with a few clicks. Organizations on the other hand receive gigabites of these duplicates and have them sitting on their hard drives or FTPs.
Civic Culture And Everyday Life in Early Modern Germany
Both struggle with tasks of managing files. Our approach with Picter is to bring an end to these highly time-consuming parts of image data logistics. With Picter, images are securely stored and the creator or owner of the files only gives access to them. An organization who was granted access now can easily review, evaluate and sort the entries, remotely, as a team.
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA PRESS
In case needed, they can request high-res files through Picter. In this process, no duplicate has been created, so for everyone using Picter the currently existing overhead related to working with imagefiles is already way smoother, everyone saves a huge amount of time that is often spent on these repetitive tasks and gains more control about their process. Sounds great, right? However, we believe that with our technology we can solve many more problems photographers are currently facing. We are in constant exchange with organizations and photographers who use Picter and currently we are integrating the feedback we gathered throughout the first year since Picter went live.
We have ideas about the challenges the industry faces in their daily work life but the only way to confirm these ideas is to talk to people. The next step is to build solutions to overcome those challenges! Last week, we celebrated our first anniversary with our partners from Aperture Foundation, Triennial of Photography Hamburg, and Paris Photo. Photography is a big part of my life. I really appreciate that I can work with all these inspiring people and that I get to see so much great art work from photographers all over the planet.
On a higher level, I care a lot about the implications photography has on societies; especially since we live in a time, where images are omnipresent, while making sense of these images or their implications becomes more and more difficult. Digitalization affects all aspects of society and culture in one way or another. New questions, challenges, but also a lot of opportunities keep coming up continuously in our days. Regarding photography, these are questions like: How do we create reality with photographic images — or do we even have to?
How can we find ways to reasonably evaluate what we see? How can we control the use of images in the age of hypermedia? But I am also willing to see digitalization as a process that needs to be formed — and hopefully this formation is taking shape more from within the industry than from outside.
With my projects I try to do that on different levels. I hope I caught your interest and curiosity, and I look forward to returning soon for my next blog post! I work closely with the participants in the production and presentation of a book from their own photo projects, focusing on design, editing, sequencing and the importance of materials in the production of photobooks.
Before the workshop, we went to street shops to check the materials available. At the end, we managed to print besides the digital printing silkscreen and white on black paper. After the layout and the printing: late night making of the books — cutting, glueing, sewing. On the last day, we left the place at around 2.
The dummies. We did the dummies from scratch in four days, the final book would need more time for finalizing the layout, working on the final cover, looking for the right materials and printing places. In Burma, I curated a photobook exhibition and run a photobook workshop. In my posts over the next few weeks, I would like to feature a few portfolios from South-East Asian photographers and show an inside view of my work there.
San Kay Khine is a year-old girl who spent 5 years as a tortured captive at a famous tailor shop in Yangon and was rescued after the publication of a report by an investigative journalist. Though Kay Khine managed to escape, she suffered from broken bones in all the fingers from her both hands. Her arm was severely twisted and she initially could only stand for not more than 15 minutes. Kay Khine has undergone several surgeries at the hospital for months and now under the guardianship of Ministry of Social Welfares. She always had a mature and calm disposition.
I visited her home village Baw Lone Kwin without her to meet her parents. I had never been there before, but as soon as I got there, I felt familiar with the village. The rain trees and bamboo trees, the cows, the smell of soil after rain and the cool breeze passing from the paddy fields made me feel welcomed instantly. I felt like I could hear the giggles of San Kay Khine in her younger days playing with her friends; and imagined the ghost stories they shared at night with her friends. I felt like Baw Lone Kwin was my own homecoming.
That unexplainable feeling of nostalgia is strange but beautiful. I breathed in the memories of her childhood in that village. This is my curatorial text:. The fast and surprising flashing of conflicts make the space around and between us become an unstable place: On the one side, never knowing what will happen next and being prepared for the worst, and on the other side — being forged by the emotions and learning to be guided by basic trust.
With these two elements in a state of calm and chaos, there seems to be only one exit: raving madness, or coming home. Over the course of five days we reviewed and discussed various images. Criticism was voiced and embraced. After this intense time in Malaysia everyone worked on their own project and continued to communicate with us and each other: Ideas and images were reviewed repeatedly, across different time zones and cultural boundaries. Equally important is that a group evolved out of the participating individuals that persists beyond the initial contact.
Sometimes this included failing and starting over. Through his stark aesthetic, Alvin Lau shows us love in times of Tinder and we ask ourselves whether love has indeed become easier. Easy is the love between young homosexuals in Singapore, against all odds and beautifully depicted in the images of Lee Chang Ming. Likewise, Amrita Chandradas conveys the circumstances of life in Singapore with powerful portraits of a strong woman with a rare illness. Asrul Dwi deals with the stigmatisation of mentally ill youth in Indonesia and portrays them with a gentle touch.
Dennese Victoria experiments with the realm of possibility and observes what unfolds — her construction of an ideal family turns into a touching intimate play. In a small village in the Malaysian jungle Elliott Koon documents the journey of young Orang Asli who are growing up in a world caught between tradition and the modern age. The modern era in Vietnam appears slightly lost in reverie in the images by Linh Pham of people celebrating in Hanoi, relating to excessive isolation and the search for reorientation.
Muhammad Fadli captures the eccentricities of modified scooters — extravagant constructions, nailed and welded — in his portraits of Indonesians with their prized possessions. Kanel Khiev shows us the inhabitants of this house before it is demolished to make way for future development. The story of the house that Geric Cruz embarks on is of a private nature. The time of adolescence in Thailand displays an invariable, almost military uniformity — clothing and hairstyle are orchestrated for all adolescents, leaving no room for individuality.
Watsamon Tri-yasakda portrays transgender teenagers in their uniforms, with imagery that enlightens the issue and allows us to smile over the impositions of the present-day. With her poetic images, Yu Yu Myint Than introduces us to the dreams of a young woman in Myanmar who was severely abused and longs to return to her home village.
Youth is a universal subject; photography is a universal language. Every viewer is or will have been young eventually and everyone likes to look at what might be the future one day. Images rendering this visible, remain forever present. You can take a look and get the book here: www. Less than copies are available.
