"Other Stories is a collection of photographs that are intended to be experienced as a series of loose associations rather than determined narratives. Structured with five chapters like a fairy-tale collection, each series is toned in a different colour – reminiscent of old photographic processes and hand-colouring techniques. Whether depicting a figure, landscape, interior, or object, the photographs are imbued with a weight of meaning and emotional intensity."

"The Family Project explores family memory, but also memory  lapses and oblivion. I returned to the 20th century to piece  together the traces that my family has left on maps in the course of a century of migrations. I compiled thousands of photographs and documents from institutional and family archives, and in each place I tried to photograph a mood that captures what happened  there. This is a process of infinite connections, which opens up like Russian dolls. Each layer of history rests delicately on the previous one: to disclose its layers in order to narrate them is, in a sense, to change history."

As a result, mystery and poetry seem to blossom around the supposedly boring business scene."

"Folding Space/Pressing Time is a conceptual exploration in which Gluibizzi vibrantly distorts sexually charged Tumblr archive grids & Throwell gives photographic form to the erotic chaos that plagues his recurring dreams of time travel. Designed to be read in opposing directions for each artist, the book is a two-in-one, front-to-back or up-and-down distortion of what we commonly think of as a typical visual reading experience. In this, it mimics well the dynamic space-time jumble of disorienting dreams or the increasingly authorless & temporally indeterminate web space that is rapidly redefining what we think of as image archives."
