Untouched Touched Retouched
Text: Ursula Meyer-Rogge
16,5 cm x 20,5 cm
1st edition, 300 copies four-colour-offsetprint
Price: 22,- Euro
"Landscapes - Portraits - Retouching Layers
The sequence of the photographs are grouped into three chapters which allude to specific themes, namely, `untouched touched retouched.´ Touch, in the German translation conveys a gentleness, a sensitivity, it goes beyond the sense of touch implying that one is moved or touched by something, or in the perfect tense, was touched by something. Thus a translation of the word should include the component of retouched or "touched again", a meaning, still contained in the French origin of the word."

"The site where John F. Kennedy was assassinated is a major tourist magnet. White Xes on the pavement mark the spots where the president was fatally shot. Visitors often get their photos taken there. Some of the photos end up in online photo sharing sites. A webcam is positioned at the site where an assassin allegedly fired the shots that killed Kennedy as the presidential motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza. The camera’s perspective exactly matches that of the assassin: it now shoots the tourists shooting their own memorial photos, and we can watch this in real time. The book combines snapshots taken by tourists at Dealey Plaza with footage from the webcam."

"Far offers a strange, poetic vision of the bleakness of Siberia evoking its remoteness in both time and space through a combination of Dubuisson’s singular scenes of sub-zero life and the unintentional effects of the passage of time and the photographic process."

"'It – is – an' is the expectation and the wish (for truth, meaning, learning …). It includes the images of personal fascinations, reflexion, traces, objects, indexes, simulation. They are the scapes of history, presence and future, which as a whole become a medium of present time, a medium of space and time and in this also the medium of the event in a specific time."

A Margem (The Riverbank)
Author: Garapa Collective
Design: Milena Galli
Essay by: Eder Chiodetto
250 x 170mm/ 10 x 7 inches, 96 pp.
First Edition, 2000 copies
Price: BRL 15.00 / US$10, plus shipping
“Conscious of the labyrinthine historical and symbolic folds kept between the two 594 miles long banks of the Tietê River, the Garapa photographers threw themselves into a series of expeditions, remaking the courses of navigators who took part in exploratory missions along the river in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, in Brazil. This book intends to be the retribution to the public of what was collected along those journeys. It suggests a reflection on how to construct narratives from a subject that slides and won’t let us catch it in a direct, objective way.” (Eder Chiodetto)

"From the Artist 'There is a constant struggle in the photographic medium with what is a familiar and what is foreign. In the portraits that make up Hello Other I am attempting to describe the in between zone of the medium, wherein we must accept that portraiture cannot bring us closer to the ones it portrays.'"

"British photographer Jason Larkin explores the vast waste dumps created by Johannesburg’s gold mining industry. Larkin’s images of life on and around the city’s incongruous man-made hills shed light on some of the most challenging questions facing South Africa today—the legacy and future of the mines, environmental degradation, service delivery and the housing crisis. An essay by Mara Kardas-Nelson considers the complex debates amongst environmentalists, government entities and communities about the future of the mine dumps."

"This book is a collection of work I made during my first (and so far only) adventure through Europe, I was away from home for 6 months. There is a loose narrative in the sequencing of the book that begins with images I made as a tourist (landmarks and new places) and concludes with work that becomes far more personal and situational."

"As long as the memory itself lives and remains flexible, as long as it is not petrified, there is not a single chance at trying to bring to a halt this flood of recalls and capture images frozen in time. Faces of the past never freeze forever. Images of the whole generations of a family — they get farther away from the present, they are constantly revived in our multiple recollections — and they change relentlessly. Some of the features are erased; some of them come back to surface. Again and again we address our own and other’s memory and we have to finish writing family stories and to touch-up portraits of our own relatives."

The Farther Shore
155 x 220 mm
Edition of 100, signed and hand numbered
50€ + shipping costs
“The Farther Shore” is about how the history of the past and present endowed with memory intertwines in today's space. The pictures were taken in Russia on the Volga River where in the 1930’s was built a hydrosystem and 4 6oo sq. km the area was flooded. One of the main issues which became starting point for the creation of this book is why during the evacuation of flooded land some people preferred to stay in their homes and die but not to leave their native places?"

"In this project, I am primarily concerned with changes in the state of the human body. It is a questioning of the spasms that are related to the duality of being, which I accept and then try to exploit in the photograph. This work touches on several aspects of being a woman, pain, abandonment, emotions that usually remain hidden, especially in the presence of several «me.» The self-portraits taken with a character-crazy laugh, create a line at a time uninterrupted interspersed with pictures coexisting in the same spirit of storytelling."
