"The idea of the book is taken from Noda's 'Blink', a series of diptychs. This series was given an honorable mention by famed critic Kotaro Iizawa at the 2006 Canon 'New Cosmos of Photography' competition. About this work, Noda says that she 'tried to make the physical body reaction (blink) into a photographic image. To blink is something that we can not really control. (Of course we can blink intentionally.) I wondered and visualized what I am missing in the little moment when I blink. So that is why I used two pictures to show a little difference and moment between there.'"

"I wish I was alone, so I travel is a document about my attempt to climb Armenia's and Georgia's highest peaks. I also wanted to document the life there, yet I was only a beginner with no ideas. Two years later I edited the photos once more: it felt like I was emotionally blind at the time, since I missed my loved one so much. I learned that one associates with landscape and people nearby: if I don't have a home I am s stranger."

"A supernatural quality infused by God into the soul at the moment of justification, perfecting the soul in a supernatural way, establishing it in justice and sanctity, making it a sharer in the Divine Nature, truly constituting it an adopted son of God with a title to eternal life, and consecrating it as a living temple of the Most High God. By habitual grace, a free gift of God, the soul is privileged to enter on a state of friendship with God, which is of its nature permanent, but may be broken temporarily or forever by the abuse of free will and the introduction of sin. Cherished and guarded in the soul it is an unfailing pledge of everlasting life with God. - New Catholic Dictionary"

Artist: Lena Grass
60 pages
Edition: 100
Digital print

"My pictures are traces of intuition. I recognise them when they cross my path. In the act of photographing people or places, I do not take portraits of individuals, nor do I capture landscape sceneries. I rather use them as a medium to convey feelings we all share. Like the sensation of being out at night, when darkness embraces you. Like the search for one’s identity, for what is left in solitude. When one is scared of loosing oneself, or even, finding oneself."

Hiroshi Takizawa - A rock of the moon

Title: A rock of the moon
Artist: Hiroshi Takizawa
Edition: 50 laser print

"A rock on the Earth takes me to the moon, and then on to another place.Like this image, everything in the universe is linked. However, it may only be that our minds are wondering from one to another between the common images of the memories and histories of the object. That is what lies under how you connect with society, how you think, how the world passes around you, how and where you live your life, who you meet, talk, and feel. Humans are lonely beings from birth, but in this image, we are connected."

"Antikyra is a Greek town located on the Gulf of Corinth. As a child, Kristof Guez used to spend his summer holidays there with his parents, and then he stopped going ; his parents got a divorce. However Antikyra has remained imprinted on him as the place of his first stirrings of emotion and his first fears, so much so that he feels as though he was born there and the Mediterranean sea was his cradle. In 2008 he went back there for the first time with his father. Photographing Antikyra to give substance to this idealized past once again."

Jean-Michael Seminaro - At Night

At Night
16 Pages

Color Offset
€ 10,00

"Those night pictures originated from a fail, a miss shot. The picture was way too dark so i decide to push the digital process with shadow level. The end result of that picture was kind of a revelation for me and I start to love the digital noise that most photographers try to avoid. I also start to shoot everything with the built in flash. Intrigued with all the reflection that I can produce at night on all kind of things like glass, trees, rain, etc... Things seems to reveal after. One of the main theme for this book is the garden, the urban one, the suburb. I look on how people can decorate their front house, the backyard or a middle street. Everywhere we go, we try to control and organize nature all around us. I look for trace that we left. But this project is also about the walk. I like walking at night, especially in the winter time when everything seems in wait of a new life, a new beginning. I try to work with the relation between nature and digital reproduction. Focusing on the digital result itself and how it´s going to react in front of a certain situation."

"The work focuses on young people of a generation which differs considerably from the archetype of past generations. Globalization, commercialization and digitization are changing society and, in particular, the part of society growing up with these influencing factors. The individual portraits show this world in which loneliness and angst, suppression and the craving for personal prestige intermingle with narcissism and self-discovery, and the question of recognition and love becomes a raison d’être – we want to be loved."

Subject matter of my work ethic is how to really see things that are visible. I remember clearly, as a child, I got surprised by the fact that the miscellaneous trees near my house were planned to be planted. Now, most of the nature in the world is controlled, well-kept by human beings and becoming "artificial". It made me question, "What is 'nature' in modern days?". We have a misperception of human beings. We think we are in control of everything. At the same time, we use our power to take things out that are out of our control. The wild "nature" is there not to be touched. Although, it is a very narrow and limited world.

Bobby Abrahamson - North Portland Polaroids

North Portland Polaroids
Bobby Abrahamson
5 x 7 in.
100 pages
Edition of 150
Price: $25

"Ampersand is pleased to present this collection of photographs by Portland photographer, Bobby Abrahamson, who spent the better part of a year shooting Polaroid Type 55 portraits of the people he encountered on the streets of St. Johns, a distinct neighborhood in North Portland. 'Abrahamson meets these people exactly where they are,' notes Julia Dolan in the foreword, 'precisely where they want to or should be. Himself a resident of St. Johns, Abrahamson is not only their photographer, but their neighbor, and his subjects respect this—notice how close he manages to get to so many of them. Their command of space and direct gazes attest to an undistracted presence, a strong link to their environment, and a wary trust in the artist ... this place isn't just anywhere. It is St. Johns, and these are it's people, quietly yet eloquently described by Bobby Abrahamson and his photographs.'"

"Description: Over the course of a number of visits in 2010 and 2011, Christopher Young was given access to the World Heritage-listed Fremantle Prison to produce a new series of images. Closed in 1991, it was a place where normal processes occurred with protagonists eating, sleeping, working and playing. As such, it could be seen as a highly concentrated microcosm of the outside world."
