Interview: Lydia Panas

photo-eye is happy to welcome The Mark of Abel back to the Photographer's Showcase. In this updated portfolio, Lydia Panas presents twenty portraits of friends and family. Photographed in loose undirected poses by Panas and her large format camera, they are affecting images, the subjects memorable in their penetrating gazes. It is hard not to attempt to read into the figures in these images, Panas' depictions of them seem so revealing, as if back-story can be deduced from a single frame, caught in facial expression or body language. The relationships between the subjects feel pointed, as if the tension, love and conflict between these people is hanging in the air around them.

Kehrer Verlag has also recently published a collection of images from Panas' multi-year Mark of Abel project in a book. We asked Panas to tell us a little bit about this project and the process of putting the book together.

Interview: Hans Bol

Paradise City is a remarkable collection of images from Hans Bol, and serves as a thoughtful investigation of the Carrara region of Italy famous for its marble quarries. Known as Carrara marble, the marble quarries have been used for centuries. The Pantheon is constructed from it, as is London's Marble Arch; it is the marble from which Michelangelo carved his David; and it can be found in the Sheikh Zayed Mosque and Harvard Medical School.

A Closer Look — 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." — Antone Dolezal

For Every Minute You Are Angry You Lose Sixty Seconds of Happiness by Julian Germain


"Almost lost in the mix was Julian Germain's For Every Minute You Are Angry You Lose Sixty Seconds of Happiness. Originally published by SteidlMack in 2005, the first edition quickly went out of print. Now the book has followed Mack to his eponymous imprint, republished in November as a slightly expanded second edition. It's as strong as any book in Mack's catalog." — Blake Andrews from the review of For Every Minute You Are Angry You Lose Sixty Seconds of Happiness by Julian Germain

Animals That Saw Me by Ed Panar


"Ed Panar relishes the banal. With projects such as Walking Home — photographs of houses passed while walking home — and Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes — a study of static everyday forms — Panar operates in the everyday world right outside the door. His previous book Golden Palms, shot in car-centric Los Angeles, was a collection of photos found while walking: garage doors, fencing, highways, 'cartoon characters I'd find,' in Panar's words, 'like the rainspout attached to the wall in a city where it doesn't rain.' But even LA on foot was perhaps too exotic for Panar. He has since resettled in nondescript Pittsburgh, where much of his current shooting takes place." — Blake Andrews from the review of Animals That Saw Me by Ed Panar

Viviane Sassen: Parasomnia Viviane Sassen: Parasomnia
"This monograph by the award-winning Dutch-born photographer Viviane Sassen features photographs from throughout West and East Africa. Sassen's overriding theme is parasomnia, a sleep disorder involving strange movements, behaviors, emotions, and dreams. The otherworldly feel of these photographs, involving both human and inanimate subjects, aptly conveys an altered-consciousness point of view — one that is at home in the pages of a fashion magazine, newspaper, or a modern art gallery. Indeed, Sassen's images have appeared in all three venues and to wide acclaim. Sassen's photographic series is engaging and thrillingly beautiful, filled with shadow and ambiguity, and it offers a challenge to the viewers to come up with their own narrative." —the publisher READ MORE
