"The word Huldufólk translates to hidden people, who are said to inhabit the lava fields, stone piles, boulders, and hills of Iceland. These enchanted spots are called Álagablettur, or power places, and they offer the secretive and dark landscape the Huldufólk require. Tales point to the Huldufólk protecting humans who respect their domain. But they are also territorial, and are known to defend their homes from human intrusion. The Álagablettur of Iceland are places of an ancient struggle. These photos are a documentation, a record of what remains of history, and the proof of the Huldufólk's continuing legacy."

Erik Schubert - How to Win Friends and Influence People

How to Win Friends and Influence People
Erik Schubert
Published by Lavalette, 2013
Artist book
88 pages
Edition of 250
$55 Signed
$125 Special Edition with print

"Borrowing an infamous title as the starting point for his first artist book, Erik Schubert considers how our appetite for success shapes our visual world. His photographs depict lonely interiors, defective products, and studies of ephemera culled from expositions, infomercial sets, and the family home. Schubert’s photographic exploration of the corporate vernacular elicits a dark humor, of fruitless desperation. Pre-packaged business attire, scuffed carpets, and uncanny corporate tableaus paint a portrait of an underlying irony — a world built on reputation and charisma, at the edges of catastrophe."

Pierre Liebaert - Macquenoise

Title: Macquenoise
Photographer: Pierre Liebaert
Contributors: Fabrice Wagner & Septembre Tiberghien
Newspaper 36 pages, bound 29 x 38 cm, in printed, hard-bounded and gatefold cover, 19 x 29 cm.
edition: 612
Rotary press & off-set
Price: 17 € + shipping

"Macquenoise is the bittersweet portrait of a mother and son who live secluded life with only animals for company, at the mercy of the seasons. From this oedipal relationship wells up a violence suffocated by a state of immobility. Sometimes,  a look seems to be a cry for help, a warning that we heed while remaining mute, powerless. Macquenoise might well be the name of a dance of death, the memory of an original sacrifice from the very edge of a horizon that sighs, between light and darkness. But it is a village on the fringes of Belgium, on the French frontier. We see there the shadow of the mother, planted  like a knobby oak-tree, and that of the limping son. Two characters so deeply engrained in the earth they live on that they have taken root there forever."

"At first sight a landscape. An aesthetic rendition, a depiction of the wonders of nature and the impact of man, the commingling of the natural and the cultural landscape, but also a series of shifts, dialogues and subtle interventions. On the other hand, a personal attestation on the part of the artist and above all an attempt to get closer to himself through the lens."
