Toyohiko Yasui One Thousand Millimeter 1973

Full Article and Full Sequence of Book on Patreon   The desire found in that book functions incredibly obliquely. Images of women do not, even when on a bed and nude, represent sex or an objectifying element; they are reduced to the same void as everything else and feel like a piece of the vortex. […]

Kim Thue Lode

Kim Thue from Lode Image is contained in the press pack. Full Article on Patreon   I also believe artists should be open to dialog. Not every conversation is an inquisition, and if your intentions are not poor, we all gain in you underscoring your thoughts instead of hiding from them or our questions. Many […]

Jonas Feige This Soil We Create For Ourselves

    Editor’s Note: I wrote the original press release for this book. Pointing this out before you read the review for transparency is fair and necessary, as it will inevitably show some bias. In place of a review for this concern, I have decided to extend the format with what appears as inanity but […]

Robin Graubard Road To Nowhere

Review Excerpt Graubard’s Road to Nowhere is a mercurial title. Published by Loose Joints, the last home of which I might expect to find a book on civil war and discontent to be published, the work reflects neither a war book nor a specific Aftermath book. Aftermath or post-event photography is a genre that looks […]

Paul Graham: Troubled Land

We fail our images and images fail our desires. In trying to deliberate over which side of failure images are consigned to, the human side versus the side of the function of the image itself, it is hard to not implicate oneself in misunderstanding the function of a photographic image. We have come to expect […]

Jeffrey Silverthorne 1946-2022

One of the most profound experiences of my visual life came with the discovery of Jeffrey Silverthorne’s The Woman Who Died in Her Sleep, 1972. I believe that I encountered the image in William Ewing’s book The Body: Photographs of the Human Form, 1994. I could be wrong as I no longer own a copy […]

Ulrich Wüst Cityscapes 1979–1985

  I am attracted to the idea of audibility in photographs. In assessing my desire to hear photographs, I would suggest that this stems from a few reasons. Firstly, the static and still nature of a photograph rent from the passing and often raucous movement of life is singular in its condition to be viewed […]

Mohamed Bourouissa Périphérique

Full Article on Patreon     “Where the interior of anything of consequence meets its exterior lies a point of tension that is best understood by an examination of limits. In terms of social experience and urban dwelling, this is no different. Designs in 20th and 21st-century forms of living have made the urban experience […]

Yannick Cormier Dravidian Catharsis

  Photography has a long history of documenting performances and rituals. The two terms, though separate are inexorably linked when they cross the path of divinity in all of its forms, invocations, and variations. From Christianity to the most abject forms of its antithesis, photography has always been instrumental in the documentation of rituals, the […]

Anna Lim Anxiety On/Off

Are we defined by our periods between tragedy or by the politics of the tragedy itself?   During the course of the 21st Century, our lives feel constantly intertwined and defined by a sense of paralysis regarding global events. We are a media-manipulated species whose ability to read the political terrain is constantly undermined by […]
