Svjetlana Tepavcevic's portfolio The Sea Inside (Portraits of Waves)

"The Sea Inside (Portraits of Waves) is a series of abstract black-and-white images exploring the energy, complexity and individuality of ocean waves. More than simply being photographic representations, the images in The Sea Inside are unique and subjective interpretations, imbued with my emotional connection to the sea." — Svjetlana Tepavcevic

Colette Campbell-Jones on Stories from Underground — An Interview with Anne Kelly, Part Three

We conclude our series with Colette Campbell-Jones with a few more stories from the underground. In this final installment, Campbell-Jones focuses on a few tales and experiences that inspired Abyss #2, one of her two 120" photographic murals.

"I'll talk about what went into making of the underground mural. There were fragments from a number of stories, one from an uncle, combined with current "stories" told to me by miners I spent some time with while at Tower colliery. I also incorporated my own visceral impressions when I visited down the pit. Much of a story's impact is in the way it is told; so much is lost through writing. So much of the power is in the oral transmission." — Colette Campbell-Jones

A Closer Look — Supreme Vice

"After finding my way back to reality and settling into the comfort of my book filled office I picked up a copy of Tereza Zelenkova's Supreme Vice and while absorbing the images had an immediate flashback to last week's experience. Come to find out, the landscapes in this book were taken in the deserts of the American West, specifically in Death Valley. Zelenkova's book conveys a detachment from reality that is structured through her desolate depictions of the barren desert. This structure suits the book well given the artist's vision of weaving her Gnostic view of occult symbolism and mysterious landscapes together." — Antone Dolezal

M. Horno and T. Itagaki: Kikai to Geijutsu to no Koryu / The Correspondence between Machine and Art M. Horno and T. Itagaki: Kikai to Geijutsu to no Koryu / The Correspondence between Machine and Art
A key book for the history of Modernism in Japan (and the reception of Bauhaus aesthetics in particular) and a gorgeous example of Constructivist design. Takao Itagaki was one of the leading figures of the New Photography movement in Japan during the late twenties and early thirties. Having studied in Europe, he was intimately familiar with Franz Roh and other practitioners of New Objectivity. He published numerous essays promoting the documentary function of photography (against still dominant Pictorialism) and a general 'mechanical aesthetics'. A fine example of one of the cornerstones of pre-war Japanese art!

One to Nothing by Irina Rozovsky

"How does one take a picture of Israel and not account for the conflict? The proverbial elephant in the room? To an outsider, inundated by the news, such an approach seems impossible, or maybe even morally irresponsible. Irina Rozovsky's book One To Nothing examines contemporary Israel as a complex, but contest site - never giving us an answer, but leaving clues throughout." — from the review of One to Nothing by Adam Bell

There Was a Forest by Loli Kantor

"'The critique of culture is confronted with the last stage in the dialectic of culture and barbarism: to write a poem after Auschwitz is barbaric, and that corrodes also the knowledge which expresses why it has become impossible to write poetry today.' — Theodore Adorno

Loli Kantor's There Was a Forest is one more necessary act of reclamation, an act at once deeply intimate and personal, and one that cannot help but be political. This work is one of many from the past thirty years which refutes and consciously or unconsciously confronts Adorno's once famous dictum. Adorno wrote it a few years after the end of WWII and it was not until the voices of survivors had to tell their stories that Adorno's dictum broke down. " — from the review of There Was a Forest by Richard Gordon

Enrique Metinides: Series Enrique Metinides: Series
Series is an attempt to examine Enrique Metinides' work from the perspective of cinematography, sequentially revealing facts that come together in a substantial way to form a common motif with continuity-thematic at least-between the various episodes of his oeuvre. This iconoclastic approach allows us to see that the work of Enrique Metinides is one of both fact and fiction.
