Interview: Rania Matar

In A Girl and Her Room, Matar focuses her lens on teenage girls and their relationships to their bedrooms, spaces they control, spaces that are often an extension of their burgeoning identities. Photographing girls from the United States and Lebanon, Matar's images are a sympathetic depiction, showing both the confidence of the young women and but also the turbulence and uncertainty of the age.

A Closer Look - White Noise


"I had no context to ground me in what I was looking at when I first opened White Noise — my eyes didn't take in the four words that appear as a preface to the photographs. The first sequence of images deliver such profound disorientation that even though it quickly becomes clear that we are looking at interiors, everything is tinged with a sense of the unreal." — Sarah Bradley

A Closer Look - Surface Series


"Surface Series by Batia Suter uses found imagery — some I would assume to be vernacular, documentary, commercial, scientific, among other genres and sources — to collect and examine images with the theme of surface. Adorned with a section of a tree on the red cover, the book is produced in black & white with many images revealing the half-tone dots of their original publication, betraying the fact that the image has been appropriated from cheaply printed media (and adding another layer of interest and visual texture)." — Melanie McWhorter

Margot Wallard & Jh Engström: Foreign Affair Margot Wallard & Jh Engström: Foreign Affair

"In November 2010, we were in the middle of an unstoppable and blind passion, we did voyages between ural and rural emotions, between Paris and Värmland. Knowing the weakness and strength in this state of mind, we decided to put together Foreign Affair. The book is photographed and edited between December 2010 and February 2011." — the publisher READ MORE

John Gossage: The Absolute Truth John Gossage: The Absolute Truth
"Within Gossage's narrative lies the singular image on each page. Each of his photographs tell their own story to absorb and contemplate, and as the page is turned we are allowed to let the last photograph slip into memory and thus delve into the next. The following pages all add upon each other, but in a sense each photograph declares its own unique statement." — from Antone Dolezal's post on photo-eye Blog. READ MORE

Dirk Braeckman


"There is something secret and sinister lurking in the depths of Dirk Braeckman's photographs. An omen that brings an uncanny atmosphere and uneasy tension I cannot quite put my finger on. It's this tension of unsettled mystery that keeps bringing me back, almost as if I could find myself hiding in one of the photographer's deep shadows or half empty interiors. And maybe this is it. Here I keep finding myself deep within these photographs, on some sort of journey, half lost and aimless." — Antone Dolezal from the review of Dirk Braeckman

From Polaroid to Impossible


"In a quest to profile Polaroid as a serious and cutting edge art form, its inventor Edwin H. Land and the photographer Ansel Adams established the Polaroid Collection in the late 1950s. The collection was supplemented by the introduction of the Polaroid Artist Support Program in the 1960s, which provided free film and cameras to a range of established and emerging photographers in exchange for selected prints." — John Mathews from the review of From Polaroid to Impossible

Thomas Mailaender: Cathedral Cars Thomas Mailaender: Cathedral Cars

"The design of Thomas Mailaender's Cathedral Cars is what I'm most intrigued by. It's oversized, printed on heavy card stock and contains only 12 photographs. The horizontal images are full-bleed; stretching across the seamless gutter and at this size, work remarkably well. Here Mailaender focuses his camera on individual cars traveling aboard ship from the port of Marseilles to North Africa. Each car carries its own personality and in many ways these images also serve as a telling extension of the car owners." — from Antone Dolezal's post on photo-eye Blog.

Stephanie Solinas: Sans Titre Stephanie Solinas: Sans Titre
By fixing the form of identity, Alphonse Bertillon modified our faces. From an eminently personal element, he made a tool of the State, an instrument of identification: a gridded, readable, occulted, talkative, divided, synthetic surface; a necessary, sufficient summary of the multiple realities of an individual. From this heritage, on the surface of every one of our contemporary faces, established as interfaces between individual and society where identification becomes a machine of government, subsists, barely blunted, the searching face of Alphonse Bertillon.
