"Eight million inhabitants, thousands of shegués (street children), hundreds of wrestlers and their brass bands. Edingwe, Dragon, City Train, Mbokotomo: the “legends” of Congolese wrestling invent themselves on a daily basis in the outskirts of Kinshasa. Body-building, and even black magic enthusiasts fight for glory in makeshift rings. They come from the streets and their charisma commands respect and admiration. But the heros of the ring are modest in victory : « Kobeta libanga papa mundele » [we manage, white man]."

21 x 25,5 cm / 8.27 x 10.04 inch
offset printing
Edition of 750 +25 special edition
Price: 28 euro (220 euro special edition)

"Hanguk is a photographic essay about my travels to South-Korea, the country i was born it but in fact never visited again since my adult age. It is less the documentation of a country and its inhabitants. Rather, for me the work is a pictorial description of a place that belongs to my own wholly personal imagination. It is the attempt to bring the images of external reality into agreement with those of inner reality."

"In our collective unconscious the nuclear age is synonymous with the explosion of two atom bombs. Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But since 1945 it has been documented that more than 2,000 nuclear bombs have been detonated on Earth. Since the end of the Second World War, countries with nuclear powers methodically bombed their own lands. Self mutilation in the name of self defense.

Tiane Doan na Champassak - Sunless

by Tiane Doan na Champassak
64 Pages, 25.0cm x 33.0cm
Offset, with Silkscreen UV & machine matte varnish
Edition of 500 copies, with three different covers
Price 60€

"In Sunless, transgressive sexual encounters have been captured by the photographer on Ilfochrome film and interspersed with stark monochrome impressions of the urban architecture in which they are anchored. Consequently, Sunless pushes the limitations of offset printing to the limit by attempting to accurately reproduce Ilfochrome prints through the use of high pigmentation inks combined with silkscreen varnish, juxtaposed with large format matte-varnished duotone images. The images in Sunless, taken in Thailand between 2012 and 2013, form the second part of a larger body of work-in-progress, born out of a persistent urge to photographically confront questions regarding gender and sexuality."

"Seeing a rainbow (through a window that isn’t there)’ is a way to contemplate the modern, industrialized landscape.

By using the metaphor of a rainbow (light + water – which everyone adores) Dries Segers applies the color spectrum on what we are tired of seeing."
