This decadence is my home. - Nic McInturff"

In a town with a name that translates to mean “place of love” where else would you expect to find such a sweet kiss of plain vanilla…"

“In Lisboa, I passed solitary people on the street and began to wonder what they were thinking about, on what reverie they drifted, who they were missing, what secret they were keeping… What were their hang-ups? I thought about objects and places, and the meanings and memories that people assign to them. And then I sought to make photos around the city that captured this longing, this loneliness, these mental and emotional obstacles and associations that most likely are never told, let alone understood by others.”

19 x 26 cm size, 50 pages, 18 photos
500 copies, signed and numbered
Offset printing, pólen paper
Price: $ 25 + Shipping

"Tempo arenoso (Sandy Time) was constructed by ideas and concepts that involve the questionings of how we see time, of how we believe that time can fictionalize our gaze. Stepping away from a linear narrative, the essay treats the landscape as a thought; it is about the dilution of physical time into the contemplative one, of time captured by photography and converted into memory."

Sabine Schründer - EVA-04

by Sabine Schründer
Text: Heide Häusler
Design: Sven-Lindhorst Emme
Editing: Sabine Schründer

Offset printing
Edition: 200 copies + 50 copies special edition
Price: € 45,- 
Special edition with plastic plate & fine-art-print numbered and signed: € 130,-

"Eva-04 is many things at the same time, an expedition to and reflection on a foreign mindset. Created in Japan in 1998, so at some distance from a Western European home, the work formulates basic ideas that question the socio-psychological location of the individual in society. Japan was a good place for Sabine Schründer to approach an idea of the individual by photographically exploring the sensitive nexus of individual and group, of group and society". – Heide Häusler

Tim Lane - Anima Mundi

Anima Mundi
by Tim Lane
Concertina book when fully unfolded extends to over 5 metres (16 ft) long – folded down it is approximately A5 and fits into a bespoke made hardback slipcase (5 x 21 x 2.5 cm).
Published by Book Works.
£160 (Delivery to UK address (Special Delivery) : £10 // Delivery to non-UK address (International Track + Sign) : £15)

"The title Anima Mundi is derived from the Latin phrase for ‘Soul of the World’ and represents the intrinsic connection between all living things. The layout of the book evades any finite ending as the viewer creates layers of mystery that reject the notion of a linear narrative; in turn the viewer is given ownership of their own personal narrative as they interact with the work."
