”It’s like theatre and actually for those days of the fair it is a bit like being on stage with the artworks. The opening day of any fair, Unseen and Paris Photo especially, are like hosting a party, you catch up with friends and colleagues but meet new ones too. It can be a lot […]
“Photography is a medium that typically hides its own materiality – we commonly look at an image rather than the material surface it appears to us on. Photography translates everything to surface, its depicted world flattened, the space is squeezed out of it. And yet it still usually looks like the world we know. This […]

“I normally start with a rather specific set of ideas for images in mind; named set originates in sketches and research I normally engage in for some time, maybe months, before starting to even make or use photographic imagery.” Thomas Albdorf‘s main interest focuses on photography and sculpture – in particular, the intersection area […]
Knowing that she was about to die, my aunt said that she would have less regret about leaving this world if she knew she could still send letters. There was a certain burden of hearing the small metal chain swing against the glass casing of the light bulb’s pulsating dissonance. Clink, clink, the third […]
