"In his largest book to date "The Devil May Care” Aaron McElroy takes his diaristic taxonomy further by incorporating nefarious totems of desire to a new level. Within the tradition of his past works, he continues to look at the female body with a less eroticized view for that of exploring the subject in various states of glancing over that of the gaze."

Juan Aballe - Country Fictions

Country Fictions

Text and photographs by Juan Aballe
Graphic Design by Jaime Narváez
Essay by Eduardo Momeñe
80 pages
210 x 243mm / 8.27 x 9.6 inches
 Edition of 500
27€ + shipping

"Produced between 2011 and 2013 in Iberian Peninsula, this book deals with my relationship with the rural environment and the emotions brought about by the possibility of taking the big step of leaving the city and living closer to nature. Country Fictions also reflects on the photographic language itself and how we are influenced by previous representations and preconceived ideas about rural utopias. The illusion of escaping from contemporary society, the naivety and the hopes built around nature come together with the strangeness and the nostalgic look at a life that is not mine."

Rainer Sioda
PogoBooks #89
144 Pages, 30,5 x 24cm
1. Edition - 500 copies
Full Color Offset
48,- € // 60,- $

"In the 144-page book, large-format landscape photographs of the North American province face off images of Brandenburg and its surroundings. The book title "Transatlantic Relations" refers to the playful approach to substantive as well as formal image relationships that Sioda gleaned from the respective environments. In doing so, the border between foreign and known starts to blur, the key to the volume's wit as well as its depth."

"One chilly Sunday morning I was strolling through a flea market in Kharkov when I spotted vintage photos: cabinet and visit portraits, lying around on the ground covered with snow and slush flying from people’s feet. I started to buy these photos in a daring attempt to save them. Many of them had an inscription ' Negatives are stored ' or ' Negatives are stored  for further orders' on the back. But collecting somebody else’s photos just for the purpose of keeping them seemed pointless. I decided to give them a new life, a new beginning… may be a life they never had."

Clément Paradis - Sound of Midnight

Sound of Midnight - the theory of bitter fun
Clément Paradis
248 pages, digital b&w
22,00 × 14,60 cm, paperback with silver dust jacket
Edition size 100 ex.
26€ + shipping

“One night I was outside of a club in London, I think at that moment I started to hear it… The Sound of Midnight… How many pictures did I take that night? One roll? Two rolls, three? When I ran out of rolls, I’d re-expose the previous ones anyway. I’m trigger happy, it always helps to wash the doubts away. People nowadays are afraid of the silence. Every day, as the propaganda tells us the precise opposite, we feel less human and less loved–as a photographer, there’s nothing I can do about it. But past midnight, when the smell of perfumes, cigarette and restaurant grease mix, when the humming of the bass echoes in the streets, when I hear this Sound of Midnight, I get this appetite for action, for images and for their destruction."

Edition: 300 copies
Offset print, B/W + Pantone
Perfect binding, Soft cover, Sealed in trash bag
Price: 25 € + shipping

"Dark Portraits Rome 1982-1985 is the first book by Roman photographer Dino Ignani. The book is a selection from the artist’s archive: shots of the youth that lit up the Roman night life in the early ’80s and, in particular, the venues and events related to the so-called dark universe. The dark community encompassed the various musical tendencies and the fashion of those years: from post-punk to new romantic to gothic. These photos were shot in video-bars, discos and other places where dark events took place at the time (Olimpo, Supersonic, Angelo Azzurro, Blue Bar, C-Club, Venice, Black Out, Uonna Club, Piper, Cinema Espero) and where Ignani would invite the habitués to pose for their portraits. With an essay by Roberto D’Agostino."

Limited edition of 99 + 1AP
Each book comes with one original found photograph and one archival print (documentation of Album installation)
Price: 50 euros + shipping

"Album is formed from found photographs. Images have lost their original function (memory). To be more specific, no one remembers what is depicted in these photographs and why these images were created. The most understandable signs on photographs are notes and time left marks on the backs of found images. The reverse of photographs in the installation and the book eliminates the primary function of the non-verbal message. Only notes and time affected surfaces allow perceivers to interpret the "invisible" story. But you always know that there is something else."

Fundamental physics research is carried out at the HZB, where physicists investigate the structure and composition of matter itself. How is our world constructed? What does it consist of? What laws govern these structures so small they cannot be seen in a microscope?"
