Gabriela Herman's portfolio Bloggers

"It is through our screens, these beacons of light, that the world opens up and we become literally linked to one another. I began photographing bloggers with this idea in mind, giving the viewer a peek into their intimate worlds by using their screens as the sole light source. My idea was to start with one blogger and ask them to recommend the next subject from someone on their blogroll. The same way their blogs are linked to each other's online, the photos would be linked to each other in the series.

By looking at connectivity in this digital age and the ways in which we live and spend our time, this series shows how from these dark corners, bloggers are adding value to and changing the way people interact in the world. " — Gabriela Herman

Interview: Jamey Stillings

"Currently on display at photo-eye Gallery is Jamey Stillings' The Bridge At Hoover Dam. Some of you may recall that we had a smaller exhibition of Jamey Stillings' work in October of 2009, when Stillings had just embarked on his project. Considering that this work has the power of arousing curiosity in most of the people who have come to photo-eye to see it, I have been asked dozens of questions about the bridge. And assuming that many of us have the same questions, I have asked Stillings to share his experience with us." — Anne Kelly

Photolucida's Critical Mass Books

photo-eye just received our first review copies of Photolucida's recently published books from the 2009 Critical Mass book awards and as always we are very impressed. I assume it is no surprise that we enjoy what Photolucida is all about, supplying a vast amount of opportunities for emerging or mid-career artists. This year's publications offer two thoughtful and strong bodies of work, Birthe Piontek's The Idea of North and Alejandro Cartagena's Suburbia Mexicana.

"Fukase's cry of despair is perhaps one of the most romantic photobooks...The imagery is beautiful, surprising, haunting, but ultimately it is Fukase's masterly handling of the narrative and rhythm that makes it so memorable."—Parr & Badger

Recollection by Walter Niedermayr

"An expansive highway interchange dominates the foreground while in the distance giant cranes erect buildings that look like modern casinos. One might assume that this photograph depicts a new development on the fringe of the Las Vegas strip, but this would be a false presumption. Walter Niedermayr's photographs describe the social and political landscape of Iran by examining the architecture of its towns and urban centers." — from the review by Daniel W. Coburn of Walter Niedermayr's Recollection

Takashi Homma: New Documentary Takashi Homma: New Documentary
"Photographs by Takashi Homma are known for reflecting dry sentiment of the times and giving us a feeling of distance toward the subject. Dealing with a variety of themes, such as architecture, ocean waves, children seen in Tokyo and suburban scenery, he has serialized many of them over the years. Keeping away from describing narrative or emotion, his neutral viewpoint captures the subject unemotionally, which is suitably called 'new documentary,' that leans towards neither expression nor record, advancing from the age when the two were specifically questioned." —the publisher READ MORE
