"Fifteen days have passed since I’ve cut the big cherry tree at the bottom of the field. I had to cut the tree, it was casting too much shadow on the potato plot. Yesterday I glanced down to the stacked branches and I noticed they carried on living, swelling buds, pushing out bunches of flowers. Regardless. Life never stops. Presumptuous deity of my eyes, I see the cherry branches will dry out soon, cut off from the roots. This predictiveness bothers me." Marzabotto teaches us the embarrassment of looking at each other as of today. The only relief is to gaze, without presuming, without knowing."

Title: How does it feel to be leaving the most beautiful city in the world ?

“…a strange breed. It’s the mountain and the sea. People down here don’t need human interaction so much.”

And even as a Eurocentric aesthetic continues to predominate, a frantic, rearguard mood has become apparent among the city’s whites. With every passing summer, Cape Town’s non-whites become more and more visible, assertive and numerous. It’s not difficult to envision the city as it appears through feverish eyes: a citadel under siege, a dwindling outpost of civilization. And there’s no doubt where the ultimate stand in defense of the old life will—must—be made: the slopes of Table Mountain. As one local told a newspaper reporter, “People have come to accept that you can be mugged in town or on the road but the mountain is somehow seen as sacrosanct. For me as a Buddhist it’s my temple, my soul food.”

Kris Vervaeke - Ad Infinitum

Ad Infinitum
Kris Vervaeke
Design: Hugo Puttaert – visionandfactory.com
Photobook , hardcover, 14 x 20 cm (5 ½ x 8 inch)
264 pages
133 color photos
Edition of 500
Offset printing
Self published 2013
Price: 45 euro + shipping

"The images in this book are of small porcelain portraits affixed to headstones in cemeteries in China, worn away by the passage of time and the ravages of weather. Vince Aletti says that, in aggregate, Ad Infinitum “is about the fugitive nature of portraiture, the impossibility of creating a final likeness. I just love looking at anonymous faces. Most of them are less here than gone, evoking thoughts of how we try, unsuccessfully, to fix people’s images in our minds. The book is beautifully and very simply designed, with the images given generous borders on pages that are evenly divided between black and white. It’s a simple yet lovely book.”

Book, 168 pp, 17,5x24 cm / 6.9x9.4 in
Edition: 450 + 50 Limited edition
Pricee 37€ + shipping

"I often ponder life and death. I decompose the pieces, dismantle elements in an attempt to rationally analyse them and then recompose and reconstruct the fragments, only to end up with a different equation each time. You need the right place to reflect and Greenland was that place for me. Life and death, black and white, opposing dichotomies revealing all their ruthlessness. In Greenland nature takes possession of rationality and gives a meaning to daily life. Greenland narrates a deafening silence. A voice whispering indefinable and inscrutable emotions. In Greenland one doesn’t live, at best one survives."

Michel Mazzoni - White Noise

Title: White Noise
Photographs: Michel Mazzoni
text: Michel  Poivert
Graphic Design: Design Dojo
Edited by ARP2 Editions.
Format 195 x 305 mm
32 images, 64 pages, 12 pages
booklet, self cover + red layer covering 200 Gr
Printing: offset on Munken Lynx
Edition: 500 + 25 signed and numbered copies with an original photograph
ISBN 978-2-930115-22-1
Price : 25 euros

"Optical Soliloquy. Removed from sight but subjected to the intensity of visibility. This paradox could serve as an introduction into Michel Mazzoni’s world. Everything seems to have disappeared there; beings leave only traces of their passage, or when they do appear, the concealment of the—always female—faces in this feigned indifference provides the screen onto which desire can be projected. This is as much a journey of initiation as it is an escape into memory, with its images of transcursion and what is traversed: a path, corridor, footpath, an opening, stairs, gaps and roads. They are always mental images, in black and iridescent, sometimes even blinding white—images which come to us after an effort, such as a race or the search for oneself."

Edition: 800

Type of printing: Offset

"While still an art student, Liam worked as an assistant for Amsterdam gallery Annet Gelink. During his work shifts at Frieze Art Fair, he couldn't help noticing the girl working at the booth right in front of his. The result is a collection of images that reflect the activity taking place at the booths during such an art fair, besides being a voyeuristic self-portrait of the artist himself—a reflection from the booth in front. With a text by gallerist Annet Gelink (Liam's employer back then), titled 'Never ask an artist to be your gallery assistant'."

Accompanying essay by Lewis Bush

Edition of 400, signed and numbered
Traditional colour newsprint
£6 (plus shipping)

"‘Direction of Travel’ documents a landscape still in transition on the periphery of London’s Olympic Park. Using photographs and found ephemera from the streets of east London, the body of work questions the commonly accepted narrative and seeks to distance itself from the communal endorphins supplied by the transitory Olympic spectacle. It attempts to grapple with the everyday and the commonplace, and explores the complex relationship between the landscape and its inhabitants during a time of radical change."

Publication date: December 2013
Limited edition of 500 copies

"State of Mind is a photographic series, and ultimately a book, about the individual quality of mysterious strangers. The images were captured over a period of several years traveling in countries such as Japan, Portugal, Hungary, Malaysia, Spain, South-Korea, Romania, Russia, Taiwan - and what emerged is a visual narrative on the poetic quality of individuality and what it means to be lost in thoughts.  The State of Mind series is about the “thinking moments” and the uncertain atmosphere surrounding the people and places encountered on the way."
