Shadows cast on memorial stones in a local graveyard balanced with images of a former home for the elderly - captured after it’s closure and a significant fire. Itself teetering on permanent demise. Shared as pairs the images reflect on the contrast between the living world of the photographer and the end of life represented by the two environments captured."

Between Spaces

edition of 300
offset printing
Price €25 plus shipping

"Whilst there is a photography tradition of documenting the American road trip, I felt that traveling by bike would expose me to opportunities and encounters that could be overlooked if travelled by car or bus. Taking a slower pace and being on my own speed allowed me, as an observer passing through small American towns, to see the beauty in the banality of everyday life. I feel the decision to cycle not only gave me a stronger connection the landscape but also to the people I met along the way."

Kostya Smolyaninov - Street Theography

Street Theography
by Kostya Smolyaninov
Hardcover book, 100 pp, 24x21 cm
Offset printing
Edition: 500
Price: 30 USD

"The project "Street Theography" was created during 2006-2014 in different cities of Ukraine, Poland and Russia. No wonder of people praying in church, but the meter of my interest were manifestations of religious feelings in everyday life, on every street. Hence the name and the idea emerged during photographic research ─ especially in the street the conflict between the intimate nature of faith and the public, often ostentatious religiosity strongly appears."

They seemed to be investigating a case so I started persecuting them. I collected my own clues and the ones that they seemed to be collecting. It was another outstanding case, but I discovered a very special Paris guided by the Poirot Family, a city full of small secrets."

Natalya has portrayed women, who have moved to Germany from Russia or former Soviet republics. The artist repeats with these now grown-up girls the game of “Secrets” [Sekretiki,] meaning Treasures, and finds common reminiscences."

Digital laser color print. 
Cyclus paper 90 grs. (100% recycled)
€ 10 + shipping

"... e allora Mambo! (like Vinicio Capossela says) it's the sentence that comes to my mind hopping off the bus in Politeama Square. Sweating Mambo! It's the sentence right after that (in the song, and walking around Palermo), because there is some serious heating going on there that makes your legs wobble... The loud sirens from the ambulances make me dizzy and between the loud noise, I remark beautiful words and dark stares. Every step I take is a surprise to discover and every huge door can hide a wonder. Monumental, dirty, traditional, noisy, exotic, naval, tremendously charming, loving... Palermo and the joy of living."

Curtis Hamilton - Tar Beach Blind

Tar Beach Blind
by Curtis Hamilton
74 pages, 11.9" x 9.5" (30.2 x 24.1 cm)
edition of 300
A limited edition Silk Screen Print (11.5" x 9") is included with each book.

"Tar Beach Blind presents a collection of Curtis Hamilton’s black and white photographs made over a five-year period (2010 -2014). Hamilton’s large format photographs bend early modernist aims of instrumentality and pure description towards a darker and more ambiguous experience of the everyday. Through still life and abstraction, the objects, encounters and daily problems within the immediate surroundings of his home and neighborhood are formed into uncanny realizations that are both enigmatic and ruthlessly lucid."

"What is Freedom? Does it vary between different societies? Is Freedom just the absence of pressure or is it the pressence of something else? And if so, what is that something else? - The Fear of Freedom, Erich Fromm.
The Berlin Wall was built in 1961, splitting Berlin City in two halves for 28 years. Many individuals on the Eastern side tried to escape to the Western side motivated, among other reasons, by a lack of Freedom. More than 20 years after its demise, I have photographed stages where the Wall witnessed the failure of an individual."

"Can you predict spring? Who can predict a social change? This project was developed regarding these subjects. This work was made in Tunisia, in a trip around the country, between the big cities and the desert villages, it was a memorable and unusual “tour” given the uniqueness of what I found a different culture and despite closed, with some signs of possible external openness, tourism in particularly. Regarding the political field, the only approach I made, was answered calmly, “we prefer a known thief, that a strange one”. This observation is about President Ben Ali. Some months later, the Arab Spring began."
