"Atlas is a personal response to the challenge of representing the nomadic nature of experience. Israel Ariño's gaze glides through reality and is transformed in an extraordinary and timeless world, caught and invented at the same time. Objects emerge and sensations are evoked in his photographs which were not there at first glance, and which only appear when the image materialises and the viewer then looks at it. Only then can we see the poetry that was waiting, crouched in the treetops, or in a half-seen figure, the reflections in a river, in a ghostly jellyfish or in the joy of momentary abandon."

"The concept of this project was inspired by Ítalo Calvino's book: Invisible Cities. We explore the creation and construction of a network of relationships by the subject and the consequences to the surrounding space once the subject leaves those relationships."

The Fourth Wall
Design by Christof Nüssli, Werkplaats Typografie, Arnhem
195 x 273 mm
Edition of 1000
Offset on 45g newspaper
"On a theater stage that consists of three walls; left, right and back, the fourth wall forms the imaginary screen through which the audience sees the scene unfold. The actors, conscious of this barrier, tend to break through it now and then by hinting at their own fiction, acknowledging the camera and the act. Nowhere else is there such devotion to cinema as in India. This fictional world seeps into reality and influences everyday life dictating the perception and imagination of its audience. A collection of quotes from newspapers is evidence of this synthesis. The people in these images become actors by choosing their own roles, which they perform for the camera and its western operator. Conscious of the power of images, they give it their all, reflecting on their silver screen dreams by embracing their collective visual world and creating their own brief moments of suspension of disbelief."

"'Botanic I' contains selected images from my Botanics series which has been the subject of several exhibitions. I have reprocessed the images to look more grainy and contrasty. I have also heavily cropped some of them to further highlight the form of the plants."

"Light as feathers, round as breasts, these images are voluptuous, straightforward, they swallow everything. A sentence by Henry Michaux fits them well: “In the warm mist of a young girl’s breath I found a place…”."

“Right Here, Right Now is a collection of polaroids taken between 1998 and 2008 by the Portuguese musician/photographer David Fonseca. Caught by a sudden musical success that thrived to the date, he collected some of the key moments behind the scenes, although his images drift into a much more personal world, underlined by several short texts describing one-minute actions that took place on that period."

"“That ominous roominghouse-stairway interior, when I found it, became the signal that keyed this image search (for America, was it?). Having discovered that shot, and reflecting then upon the dark inner-sanctum descent it suggested, I went through the original Mydans “Lots” (the image groups — over a thousand images have survived in these scattered sets of “Lots”, preserved in the archive in random fashion, so that the ordering as we now have it represents my own editing selection and sequencing plan); one thing led to another, and…” - Tom Clark, IN THE SHADOW OF THE CAPITOL"

"This work features new compositions derived from old postcards, many from the 1970s, and a series of new photographs. In each example the skies have been manipulated to appear almost uncannily blue and flawless. The skies in these pictures never really existed and perhaps neither did the mood they encompass but in these pictures both can be revisited."

Title of publication: WILLYOUPLEASEJUSTBEMYFUCKINGVALENTINE
Artist: David Fratkin
8 inches by 10 inches; 20.32 centimeters by 25.4
"A vision of weird dolls in the pure light of a scanner—the perfect stage for dreamlike juxtapositions. The results? An attractive creepiness satirizing the unwitting—the unconscious made manifest and visceral."

"In Furtivos, Vicente Paredes tells about those behaviours that are written into our own DNA. Even in the absence of earth, a dog will always try to bury his bone; even when walking over subway tunnels, cement and glass, a man will dig holes through them to plant seeds"
Title of publication: Angel Parade #1/#2
Artist: Robert Dunn
5 inches by 7 inches; 12.7 centimeters by 17.78
"Angel Parade #1 and #2 are the first in an ongoing series of new-style street photography (mostly in New York City). New-style? The photographer blends vividly-framed character street shots with more abstract street visions; he's chasing a Provoke-era sensibility, but this time in color."

The Man of the Crowd
48 pages plus a foldout sheet
23.5 x 19.5 cm / 9.25 x 7.7 inches
"This book is a reflection on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story ‘The Man of the Crowd’ and a street occurrence photographed in Paris. The main part of the work is a series of 56 photographs, tracking a 21st century flâneur, followed by imagetexts based on linguistic analyses of Poe’s story. Each book is marked with a distinct word from Poe’s story, which limits the edition to the number of different words in the tale."

"Six eyes, three mouths and the fingers of two hands triplicated. The three routines displayed in black and white were recorded throughout three days by three different cameras. Together, they came up with nine photographies - three extracts of each quotidian -, which can be detached, so they can leave the limits of the form towards your walls."

68 pages, 15 x 21cm
Price : 25 Euro + postage
"As we struggle to attain some ill-defined summit, hidden behind the clouds, days go by in a hectic and often uncontrollable congestion that accompanies the construction of a self-image incorporating family, career, home improvements and self-reproduction. This era, sparked by the conception of my oldest son, ended sharply when my mother passed away in 2010. At that time Bogi was again carrying our child."
