"In 1806, Thomas Jefferson began construction on a modestly equipped personal retreat near Bedford, Virginia, some ninety miles from his home, Monticello. At Poplar Forest, he told a friend, he found 'the solitude of a hermit.' Rob McDonald’s photographs of Poplar Forest explore the to explore the notion of private space, which we all—even a man so great as Jefferson—require and seek instinctively."

"'No tricks in the the magic of Estelle Hanania. Her photographs do not show some fake elsewhere. They come from somewhere else. And they bring us back there, with delicacy. Estelle Hanania proceeds in some kind of inverted analogy in order to bring us closer to this eerie familiarity existing between the ritual act and the very order of nature. She introduces the viewer to a profound connection between the call for looking beyond and the raw presence of things.' - Lara Sarcevic"

Mariken Wessels - Queen Ann. P.S. Belly cut off

Queen Ann. P.S. Belly cut off
Mariken Wessels
Artist book (photo novel)
80 p. Offset - full color | 24 x 33 cm | Dutch/Eng | Sewn paperback.
Including glassine envelope containing photos. With three original unpublished photos on Hahnemühle Photo Rag. In handmade cardboard box.
Design: Mariken Wessels, in cooperation with Esther Krop.
75 copies numbered and signed.
Price: 149 euro (excl. shipping costs)

"Queen Ann. P.S. Belly cut off is based on photographs sourced from an existing person; a middle-aged woman wringing with her self-image in an endless stream of manipulated photo graphs of herself, making them into a true cabinet of curiosities. The suggestive, intimate force of the ‘found’ photographic material and other personal documents, as well as the sequencing of the images as a whole, are both deliberately arranged with great pre cision. Wessels sensitively appropriates and edits the photo and film material, constructing a narrative, weaving together images in the medium of the book."

The Strangeness of This Idea
Kate Steciw
Published by Hassla Books

Edition of 500
ISBN 978-0-9825471-3-7
Publication date: June 2010
20 USD

"I am interested in making a photograph other - juxtaposing or superimposing the mundane or expected with the altered or intangible - allowing (or even forcing) a photograph to move beyond the 2D and exist in 3D and even 4D spaces or implied spaces. I strive to expose the failure of the photographic object to reflect an increasingly immaterial world and the demands that that world makes on our perceptions. By returning that 'other' material to a photographic space/surface or juxtaposing it with a 'straight' image, a relationship is drawn between the evolving abstraction of photographic/graphic space and the abstraction inherent in all photography. It is this perceptual volleying between the solid or tangible and the immaterial or altered that, in my opinion, best characterizes the mutable nature of the contemporary visual experience - solid/static to liquid/dynamic and back again. - Kate Steciw"

Mark John Ostrowski - Amerikana

Title: Amerikana

Type: Book
Pages: 84
Size: 9" x 12" or 24 x 30 cm
Edition: 500 numbered copies.
Type of printing: duotone offset
Price: €12 World

"Émigré in Europe since his early twenties, Mark Ostrowski (1971-) in 2006, 2008 and 2009 returned to the places of his youth, many of which he had not visited for over a decade. What he saw, felt and recorded on film has been distilled into Amerikana, 49 images that capture a subtly disconcerting vision of America at the dawn of the new millennium. Comparisons with Robert Frank’s The Americans are inevitable, and by Ostrowski’s own admission, the photograph that opens Amerikana ('Memorial Day Parade' [Lumberton, NJ 2009]) is a tribute to Frank’s monumental achievement; despite being published 52 years later, this particular photo exudes that same 1950s aura, albeit ironically. But comparisons only go so far. Now the pace is slower, the style and sensibility are distinct, and the scope is radically reduced: unlike Frank’s cross-country odyssey, Ostrowski incessantly travels the same triangle--small-town New Jersey, Philadelphia and Atlantic City--so as to bear witness to his own obsessions and the manifold contractions of the country where he was born."

Through repetition and juxtaposition Funch investigates human similarities and collective behavior, creating a strange, poetic and detailed picture of our presence as both individuals and communities in the public sphere."
