Morten Andersen Satyricon & Munch

Please Visit the Full article on Patreon Synopsis: Morten Andersen’s Satyricon & Munch is a perfect example of the collaborative capacity between music and the photobook.

Mathieu Chaze Rock, Paper, Scissors

  Does one need a photobook about someone else’s family? What universal aspects of image-making allow the work to transcend from a family album to a book that illustrates the broader condition of human understanding, behavior, and endeavor? There are notable examples throughout the history of photography where images of an artist’s family are remembered […]

Alexis Desgagnés: Ammoniaque

  Ammoniaque is a simple book. I would almost describe the images within it as minimal.

Massimiliano Tommaso Rezza PSALM

I think of Massimiliano Tommaso Rezza’s process as being a dislocated type of photographic practice. His work functions on the viewer being able to unlock parts of his cryptic use of images, but never all. One is asked to recognize inherent photographic themes and usages, but it is very difficult to place an exacting context […]

Marco Marzocchi: How To Destroy Everything

What a strange process it is to sift through the remains of an anonymous person’s photographic trail. You look for clues of authorship, economic circumstance, and their loved ones who emerge through their images in repetition. You try to stitch together a narrative when there may very well not be one to consider. This is […]

Gerry Johansson- Ehime & Lalendorf und Klaber

    “it is strange for me to consider his efforts as Swedish and yet there is something to the examination of what can only be referred to as the National Camera, implicit in that sentiment are all of the complications of generalizations and archetypes. I am not trying to espouse something concrete, but rather […]
